After the excesses of the festive season and the onslaught of the cold weather of winter, the start of a new year can mean that instead of feeling energised as you’d wish, you can feel tired and jaded, with skin looking dull and dry. January is the perfect month, therefore, to work on restoring and rejuvenating, and in this series of posts, I uncover the best products to help you re-find you. Same you, but a better version, to set you up for the year ahead.
My first product of this series is the new Olay Whip moisturiser, £34.99. I’ve replaced my usual moisturiser with this as I love the texture which is unbelievably light, yet creamy and sinks into the skin like a dream, leaving it with a velvety texture.
Created by scientists to give a light-as-air finish, the formula has been ‘whipped’ so it instantly absorbs. It also has ‘Active Rush Technology’, which means the moisturiser holds 1000x its weight in hydration and active ingredients.
The other genius thing about Olay Whip is that the texture transforms from cream to liquid, flash absorbing into skin to deliver anti-aging skincare.
There are three different versions available – Regenerist, Total Effects and Luminous, each targeting different skin ‘issues’. The Luminous version has been my winter go-to so far this season. As well as deep moisturising, it gives a shot of radiance without the heaviness, greasy texture and shine that some creams give. It is formulated with PearlOptics™ and pore perfecting ingredients, which work together to brighten the complex as well as hydrating to even skin tone and minimise the appearance of pores. It also doubles as the perfect primer, so is great before a night out on the town. It’s like a blast of sunshine in a jar – the perfect way to rejuvenate the skin.
