I started wearing SPF on my face by accident. It was during college when I started wearing mineral powder foundation (because who didn’t?) and I needed to use an affordable moisturizer suited for sensitive skin to help the foundation apply nicer. I turned to Olay back then for their Olay Complete All Day Moisturizer Sensitive Skin SPF15. Being in my 30s now, my skin care requirements are multi-faceted: I want long-lasting hydration, nothing heavy or greasy, must provide anti-aging benefits and protects my skin from the sun…exactly what you get from the new Olay Whips with SPF. If you want to know three key reasons why I wear SPF every day and why I think it’s a HUGE key to younger-looking, brighter skin then keep reading.
When I was using Olay Complete All Day Moisturizer Sensitive Skin SPF15, I didn’t even pay attention to the fact that it had SPF in it. I just wanted an affordable, sensitive-skin friendly lightweight moisturizer. That product checked all those boxes – and some.
Now that I’m in my 30s, I need my skin care to pack a much larger punch.
Olay Whips Regenerist with SPF25 (found online at CVS here) has a similar lightweight, whipped texture and leaves a velvety matte finish – perfect under makeup. The Active Rush technology ensures although the formula feels breathable and water-light, it releases 1000x its weight in hydration.
It applies and absorbs into the skin quickly and evenly – no weird, gritty, patchy SPF-feeling!
BONUS: it smells fresh and light — NOTHING like sunscreen.

I feel that my skin is in pretty great shape – minus the acne breakouts I struggled with when I was younger and still (moderately) do to this day. I don’t have wrinkles yet and very few fine lines. I don’t have sun spots and I don’t have any recent moles/freckles.
I attribute this to two main factors in my skincare routine: using retinol regularly and sunscreen daily since 2006 (when I was 20).
Here are the three biggest reasons I wear SPF every day:
Yet 1 in 3 women still don’t wear SPF regularly and in the past decade (2008 – 2018) the number of new melanoma cases diagnosed annually has increased by 53 percent. (source: skincancer.org)
We have to protect our skin if we want to look youthful, well-rested and healthy… and what better way than by simply applying a lightweight moisturizing SPF like the Olay Whips with SPF25 every morning? Easy peasy.
Olay Whips with SPF25 can be found conveniently at a ton of retailers – including my favorite, CVS.
