Winter Skincare Solution: Olay Luminous Whip Facial Moisturizer

Wintertime skin, gotta love it!

That itchy, flaky, scaly, tight, dry wintertime skin that rears its ugly head this time of year feels all too familiar after living the better part of my adult live above the Mason-Dixon line.

I’m sure my recent return to running in single digit temperatures and a stinging wind hasn’t helped matters. I love those endorphins, but I sure could do without the cold, dry air attacking my aging skin.

Then I come back inside and sit at my desk beside a space heater that blasts me with hot air all day long. I know it’s drying, but it feels so good.

Did you know that central heating can reduce air humidity levels to the same moisture content as the Sahara Desert? (That’s a relative humidity of just 20-25%.) Yeah, about those #winterskinproblems!

Well, guess what? Olay has a moisturizer for that.

As a part of my 6-month partnership with Olay, I’ve been invited to try a product from their new Whip collection: Olay Luminous Whip Facial Moisturizer.

This came at the perfect time because as I shared last week, I’ve been noticing flakiness under my makeup and tightness after washing my face ever since the holidays, and that means it’s time to up the ante with a heavier facial moisturizer.

But you know how some heavy duty moisturizers are heavy and sticky? Not so with Olay Whips. Olay Whips are formulated to work and feel differently, to deliver powerful hydration with a smooth matte finish that feels light as air.

I noticed it the first time I scooped some out onto my finger. It feels creamy and smooth as you apply it to your skin and soaks in almost immediately, but it’s designed to be as effective at combatting dry skin as heavier moisturizers because it’s formulated to hold and quickly release 1000x its weight in hydration and active ingredients.

The idea is that all the moisture and nutrients your skin yearns for during the winter months is instantly absorbed into the skin rather than creating a greasy film and sitting on top of it like some heavy moisturizers do. It leaves your skin with a smooth matte finish and not at all shiny or greasy.

Best of all, I wake up the next morning with skin that still feels soft and luminous… ha! No pun intended. I actually wrote that and then looked back at the name of the product. It really does live up to its name.

Olay Luminous is also formulated to brighten your skin and even out your skin tone as well as minimizing the appearance of pores. Yes, please!

If you’ve been looking for a skincare solution for your winter skin, Olay’s patented whipped facial moisturizer is a great place to start. Best of all, it won’t break the bank. This moisturizer retails for $29.99, and you can buy it online at or at your neighborhood drugstore.
