SPF – that important thing you always hear about but don’t always incorporate into your routine. I’ll admit, I’m completely guilty of this. As I’m getting older though (I turned 36 a couple months ago) I’m hearing more and more of things I could have done to prevent some of my skin issues and SPF is mentioned All. The. Time.

Why do I skip it? It’s not on purpose. I’m not a morning person and I just genuinely forget to apply it.  I cleanse my skin, exfoliate every couple of days, moisturize and do my makeup and then run out the door. I miss the part about applying SPF with my moisturizer.

Part of me also thinks “Well, I’m indoors almost all day, it’s okay to skip!”

No it’s not. While I may be indoors most of the day, I’m not indoors ALL DAY and I should be protecting my skin all the time.

It’s time for all that to change! My normal go-to moisturizer is now available in an SPF formula – Olay Whips with SPF 25! You’ve heard me talk about Olay Whips before and I’ve been devoted to it since discovering it, but now they stepped it up even more.

I cannot stress the importance of SPF enough. My skin texture and overall appearance suffered from not using it for so long. But it’s not too late for me! While I can’t reverse the damage I’ve done, I can prevent further damage in the future. Having it built into my daily moisturizer not only allows me to use it daily but makes it so I don’t forget to use it.

Olay Total Effects Whip with SPF 25 feels the same as the original that I’ve grown to love. It’s lightweight, fluffy and sinks into my skin quickly. It’s packed with vitamins too, so my skin gets a healthy-looking glow.

There isn’t a heavy residue either, so it doesn’t feel like I’ve changed anything in my routine.  Just like the original, it also acts as a makeup primer!

My combo skin loves this! I can also apply some and go makeup free. It dries to a demi-matte, so I’m not shiny and oily looking. Olay Whip with SPF gives me hydration and healthy, plump looking skin without the shine. Most importantly, it doesn’t have that super strong sunscreen scent.

Unlike other sunscreens, Olay Whips with SPF 25 has Active Rush Technology which holds and releases 1000x it’s weight in hydration. It instantly absorbs into the skin so it feels light and moisturizing. It also blends with all skin tones without leaving that weird, white residue.

Olay Total Effects Whip with SPF does more than just add a boost of SPF to your moisturizer, it also has 7 other skin benefits.  It actively replenishes nourishing moisture, evens skin tone appearance, enhances brightness, visibly smooths fine lines, minimizes the look of pores, restores firmness and visibly reduces dark spots.  So many things we should all be looking for in our moisturizer!

I’ve already made the switch! Let’s be honest, we don’t get a redo when it comes to our skin. Nourish it, cherish it, and take care of it. While I can’t undo past damage, I can prevent future damage. It’s never too late!

If you were like me and constantly forget to incorporate SPF into your daily routine, grab Olay Total Effects Whip with SPF! It’s a complete game changer. Grab it at your local CVS and you’ll be set for Spring, Summer and beyond!

  1. I love this stuff! Olay has been my go-to for years, and that built in SPF is so welcome for my super burny skin.

  2. Well, you’ve sold me. This is my next facial moisturizer. My current one is only 15 SPF. I love that it’s 25. It means better protection from the sun.

  3. I have the same excuse, I ma inside the house almost all day so I don’t bother using anything. But these points are true and I will try this product.

  4. I know I say I put on Sunscreen when I go outside, but only when it’s for a long duration. But you are right, we need to have spf at all times of day – even if you are running to the mailbox to get mail

  5. This looks like a great product. I love the Olay brand and really like using their moisturizers but haven’t tried this one yet. It’s definitely something I’m not thinking about as often in the summer because it’s so warm here. But living in the desert, I should moisturize daily!
