Winter is notorious for being so craaaaazy on my skin. Truth be told, dry skin has been my #1 cosmetic problem, and it feels like a constant battle. Around this time every year, I find myself searching for tips on how to get rid of dry skin. The products and remedies put me into overwhelm mode every time! It’s hard to know or trust where to even begin. There are so many different quality moisturizers that can help soothe and repair dry, itchy, and irritated skin. Bring on the crazy number of choices!
A few weeks back, Olay sent me an exclusive sneak peek jar of their new line of facial moisturizer called Whips. The timing could not have been better as I had just tried 4 different moisturizers this season alone that were missing the mark. So, here’s the low down – when Olay sent me a sneak peek of Whips, they did not disclose that Olay was the manufacturer of the moisturizer. I tried Whips for 7 days straight and couldn’t believe the texture – it’s super thick and rich. But, it’s so lightweight! I thought for sure it was manufactured by a high-end brand that would cost between $50-$100.
What to do for dry skin
There are many remedies you can do on your own to improve your skin, including using moisturizers and avoiding harsh, drying soaps. Luckily, dry skin is often temporary — I usually get it only in winter, for example. Signs and symptoms of dry skin typically depend on your age, your health, where you live, time spent outdoors, and the cause of the problem. I dread winter for this reason alone.
What my skin felt like prior to Whips
The skin on my face had a constant feeling of tightness, especially after showering. There were areas of my skin that looked and felt rough. I also deal with a lot of flaking skin. I have switched foundations several times in the past, and it’s been a never-ending problem.
What my skin felt like 7 days after using moisturizer
After using Olay Whips for 7 days, I was so impressed with the results. My dry skin reduced by at least 30% within that first week. I couldn’t believe the difference this moisturizer made in such a short amount of time. It nearly made my skin feel like velvet – not exaggerating! Whips is powerful, but light as air skincare. I use it daily under my makeup as a moisturizing primer and once before bed. It’s been more than 3 weeks now, and it’s been such a game-changer for me. I’ve already purchased another jar for when mine runs out. I am hooked!
