Thanks to Olay for partnering with me on this post.
I feel like one of the most underrated parts of a good beauty routine is primer! It can be an easy step to skip, but once you find a primer you love you’ll never be able to start your makeup without it. Last week I got to try Olay’s Total Effects Whip — it’s a moisturizer that you can use as a primer (2 in 1).
It’s super light and it dries really quickly so you don’t have to wait forever before applying makeup afterwards (win win!). I naturally tend to have more dry skin so I love that this saves me a step and I can just put it on every morning. The Total Effects Whip is a nourishing cream, so it’s meant to add vitamins and boost my overall skin health, but they also have a brightening formula that helps even out your skin tone and illuminate your skin from within, and an anti aging cream that hydrates for visibly smoother skin and a fresh complexion.
I have loved using it so far as both a primer and a moisturizer — It smells so good because of the essential oils and I feel like it absorbs into my skin really well because it’s more of a gel-cream. I actually used it last night before I went to bed too and woke up feeling much more hydrated skin. Skincare is always al little tricky while I’m traveling a lot so this was perfect!
