Olay Total Effects Whip Light As Air 7-In-1 Moisturiser Review-
Hi my lovelies!
With summer approaching UK, I decided to get an amped up day cream version (the one I was last using was SPF 15) with a SPF of at least 20 & higher so splurged on this Olay whip moisturiser with a hefty SPF 30 & a light as air feel. Read on to know more.

My take on the Olay Total Effects Whip Light As Air 7-In-1 Moisturiser-
The cream comes in a lovely luxurious glass tub (why?why?why?) which in spite of being great to look at on my dresser, does nothing to ease travelling with it or my hatred of dipping my fingers to scoop out a skin product. I love my Olay fluid way more for these!.
The whip is white in color with a texture I have truly never used before, at least not in a moisturiser. It is light & soft like whipped cream which feels very velvety & fluid when applying & sinks into skin quite easily. It hydrates skin immediately without leaving any heavy feel or residue.
I love how well it hydrates my parched skin in spite of being such a lightweight moisturiser & even in this dry weather, I don’t need anything else underneath. It comes in a version without SPF as well but I found this to be perfect for me- leaves no white cast nor causes any flashback in photos.
It acts very well as a good sun protection & a great makeup primer since it makes my makeup glide on my face more smoothly with a velvety feel.
The whip has a very light, subtle fragrance which is hardly discernible & I like that since nowadays I find heavily fragranced products tend to break me out 😐
Pros of the Olay Total Effects Whip Light As Air 7-In-1 Moisturiser:
1> Luxurious glass tub packaging lovely to look at.
2> Unique, soft whipped cream texture.
3> Gets absorbed easily into skin without any residue.
4> Hydrates skin very well.
5> Has a good SPF of 30.
6> Does not aggravate my sensitive skin.
7> Works great as a makeup primer too.
8> Very faint, almost no discernible fragrance.
Cons of the Olay Total Effects Whip Light As Air 7-In-1 Moisturiser:
Too expensive for a drugstore product!!!
Glass tub packaging not suitable for travelling long with being unhygienic.
Swatch of the Olay Total Effects Whip Light As Air 7-In-1 Moisturiser-
My Rating: 4.8/5!
Do I recommend the Olay Total Effects Whip Light As Air 7-In-1 Moisturiser?
Olay Total Effects Whip Light As Air 7-In-1 Moisturiser is a unique light as air texture day cream which ticks almost all the correct boxes! It has great sun protection, a unique whipped cream texture, great hydration & no aggravation of sensitive skin. However, 35 GBP is very pricey for Olay where I can get Estee Lauder for 40 :-/ But I do recommend picking it up if you get it on sale!
