I feel like a lot of us are on a mission to find amazing beauty products that won’t break the bank, but will also change our skin for the better. Products that will keep our skin looking its best, hydrated, soft, and everything in between. Anyone else feel like this? Someone talks you into spending a lot of money on a certain sensitive skin moisturizer that they swear will change your skin, make it look better than ever before, and you get the tube and it is the size of your pinky and doesn’t even make your skin feel any different… Does this feel familiar to anyone else?
My skin with this pregnancy hasn’t been its best, it has been drier than normal, breaking out at my chin, and just doesn’t have a glow to it anymore. I wanted to ask you guys for advice but I was so early in my pregnancy and with past complications with pregnancy, I wasn’t quite ready to share yet. I started testing out products at the drugstore. Ones that you received a decent amount of product for and that are under $30. My search started and I just couldn’t find anything. I was spending so much on new products that I was starting to become frustrated and my skin still wasn’t looking good. I received an email one day asking me to blind test an unbranded sensitive skin moisturizer. All I knew at the time was the product range was called Whips, and now it’s been revealed that the brand behind Whips is Olay. They wanted me to try their new sensitive skin moisturizer without knowing the brand behind it and share an honest, real review of it. I agreed because at this point what did I have to lose? I had tried so many other things that I was past the point of frustrated.
I received a jar of the product in the mail and was a little lack luster excited about it because how could this sensitive skin moisturizer be any different than the millions I had tried before? What made this better? How was this one going to change my skin? I opened up the jar and stuck my finger in it to put some of the product on. Instantly, it felt so light weight, yet full of moisture. I was kind of caught off guard… but too good to be true, right? I rubbed this sensitive skin moisturizer on my hand and was amazed with how light it felt, yet it rubbed in so well and my hand felt moisturized. I thought, “Well, we will see how this goes.” I noticed all day how different that one hand felt, how the texture of my skin was different, and it had a moisturized look to it but didn’t look greasy.
The next day, I tried this sensitive skin moisturizer on my face and felt the same amazing things about it as before. This was somehow different than everything else I had tried, it gave my skin the hydration that it was needing without being heavy or overbearing on my skin, it cleared up my acne over time, it was truly a miracle in a jar that changed my skin for such an amazing price compared to other products I had tried in the past.
Why do I tell this all to you? Why am I going off about a silly jar of sensitive skin moisturizer? I am telling you this because it gave my confidence back in my skin, it helped me to know that it was going to be okay. I didn’t have to break the bank to find a sensitive skin moisturizer that would work for my certain skin type like they tell you at the department store counter. It worked for me, and it has worked for so many of my friends. Skin care is so important and our skin can make us feel on top of the world, or like we want to hide under the covers and never come out. If you are struggling with your skincare, give this a try, spend the small investment of $30 on and let me know how it goes. It has changed my skin and I know that it can help you too! I use the Total Effects version of Whip, but there is a range of different formulations including SPF to choose from too!
