As a mom, I know to put sunscreen on my kids when they play outside, but I don’t always make the extra effort to do it for myself. 2/3 of women know they should wear SPF daily, but only 1/3 of us actually do. So as we move towards the warmer months ahead, naturally we’re bound to spend more time under the sun and need that SPF in our lives.
I shy from regular sunscreen because of the greasiness, white residue, and heavy scent. None of that works well under makeup, so it’s not very practical for me to put it on my face daily. In truth, I only wear sunscreen at the beach where I’m ok feeling oily and being makeup-free.
I do, however, already wear a daily moisturizer, so when I got a chance to try out the Olay Regenerist Whips with SPF 25, I was an instant convert. You know I’m all about easy and fast ways to change up my routine as a working mom! If I can get something in my daily life to perform double duty, I’m a happy woman.
Olay Regenerist Whips with SPF has Active Rush Technology in it, which means it holds and releases 1000x it’s weight in hydration, instantly absorbing into the skin. It feels light and moisturizing, so much so that you might not even notice the SPF! It’s very different from most traditional sunscreens I’ve tried; I actually want to and do wear this one daily.
I wear makeup most days because I work at an office 4-5 days a week, plus I usually want to look put-together for myself on my days off. So that’s makeup 5-6 days a week. My moisturizer better not mess with my makeup if I’m going to spend the time doing it, and it needs to last all day without turning greasy or sliding off my face! High standards, I know. With Olay SPF, though, I feel like it blends with my skin tone and doesn’t leave any oily or sticky residue. It’s a makeup primer, moisturizer and SPF win all in one.
