The new-gen anti-ageing moisturiser that’s light as air

Here’s what our Review Crew® had to say about this drugstore moisturiser

BeautyCrew Beauty Editor / July 22 2019

The product

Anti-ageing moisturisers have traditionally been thick, heavy formulations that you slather on at night to combat those pesky lines and wrinkles.

But the game has officially been changed.

Olay Regenerist Whip is an anti-ageing moisturiser that has a hydrating, lightweight formula that leaves skin with a shine-free matte finish. The moisturiser preps and primes skin for a smooth and lasting makeup application and keeps unwanted oiliness at bay throughout the day.

This is most definitely *not* your grandmother’s night cream. 

Our panel of Review Crew® members put this product to the test.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent Olay Regenerist Whip to a panel of our trusted Review Crew® members aged between 20 and 38 years old who wanted a moisturiser that would target dryness, fine lines and wrinkles without feeling heavy.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about Olay Regenerist Whip.

The way it prepped their skin for makeup: Reviewers loved the smoothed, matte finish they were able to achieve with the moisturiser, which made for a flawless makeup application. Plus, many mentioned that the anti-shine formula reduces their oil-production throughout the day and helped their makeup last longer.

The anti-ageing formula: Reviewers were impressed by the fast-working effects of the moisturiser, saying they immediately started noticing that their skin appeared plumper and their fine lines and wrinkles were reduced.

The lightweight texture: Members were impressed with just how lightweight the moisturiser was, with many saying it helped cut down their time when getting ready in the morning as they didn’t have to wait for the formula to settle into their skin before they could apply their foundation.

The verdict

“I was sceptical that this would do anything for me, but it’s given my skin a softness I thought it had lost. I’m in my mid 20s and I’ve just started to get some fine lines and wrinkles around my eyes and mouth; after two weeks of using this I can’t even see them anymore.”

“I have combination 30-year-old skin, and this is an amazing moisturizer for me, I use it every morning and it drastically reduces pores, and acts as a perfect primer for make-up.”

“I have replaced my primer with this, and my makeup has never stayed on better. I’m less oily, it smells amazing, my skin looks tight, and it feels so light on my face. I think I have found myself a new go-to product; it will be hard to beat!”
