Olay Total Effects Whip | The SPF Edition
*This is a paid review in partnership with Olay. Thank for your supporting the brands that make The Daiquiri Diaries possible. All views and opinions are my own.*
We spoke a few months ago about my experience with Olay Whips: Total Effects. We’re now mid-May and I’m still loving the product as much as ever before. My skin continues to feel more nourished and I can definitely tell a difference in the morning if I forgot to apply the night before.
We’re now approaching summer and the need for SPF is real yall. Of course, it’s advisable to wear SPF year round as the sun rays penetrate our skin even on the cloudiest of days. That being said, in the warmer months we’re more likely to be outside enjoying the perks of the weather.
I don’t know about you but I’m a total sunshine addict. My soul responds to sunshine and gorgeous weather – like a blossoming flower at dawn. Wouldn’t it be great if our skin did the same thing? I wish. BUT we can still protect our skin by applying moisturizer combined with SPF, available in Olay Whips: Total Effects with SPF 25.
A quick recap on Olay Whips: Total Effects – an all in one daily moisturizer for morning and nighttime use. The cream is fast-drying with Active Rush Technology, works great under makeup, and doesn’t leave your skin feeling sticky. Now take all of that and add in some save the day SPF and you’re totally (get it?) set for summer sunshine!
You might be wondering what’s the big deal about SPF? Doesn’t the sunshine give you some essential vitamin D therapy? Yes, you’re right there. But what you may not be aware of are the hidden UV A & B rays seeping into your skin. UVA rays can zap themselves deep into the dermis layer of your skin, or the thickest layer of your skin. Your skin has three main layers: the epidermis (outermost), dermis (middle and thickest), and the hypodermis (mostly fat and connective tissue). Prolonged and especially unprotected exposure to the sun can and will lead to premature changes in your skin such as wrinkles or signs of aging (no thanks!), and ultimately skin cancer. UVB rays usually give us that superficial burn or pinkness we see after being out in the sun too long. These guys really play star roles in the skin cancer game. Check out the American Cancer Society’s page for more skin cancer facts and info! Should you see anything and I mean anything questionable on your skin, whether it’s old or new, get it checked by your regular physician or dermatologist, ASAP!
SPF along with staying in the shade, and wearing sleeves and hats are your biggest strengths against avoiding skin cancer. Don’t forget places like the tips and backs of your ears as well as the back of your neck and your nose – these places see a LOT of sun too!
Be smart, take care of skin, add that SPF and moisturize like there’s no tomorrow! I promise, even if you don’t thank me, you’ll most definitely thank yourself!

I like the bikini, it speaks warm summer weather and draws my mind to the beach. I have been trying to find a sunscreen that is light on the face and meant for the face only not think and oily.
May 25, 2018 @ 12:04 am
I love whipped face and body creams! I haven’t tried this, but Olay is great. And I’m all about that SPF 🙂
