When it comes to moisturisers, women have often had to choose between powerful results or a lightweight formula. But – after 10 years in the making – Olay has launched its biggest breakthrough yet: Olay Whips.
Promising powerful results with a light-as-air texture, the first-of-its-kind formula features Active Rush TechnologyTM, which has the ability to hold and quickly release 1,000x its weight in hydration and active ingredients.
The even better news is, rather than having to forgo your favourite Olay product in favour of a new one, Olay has added a Whip moisturiser to three of its powerhouse ranges – Total Effects, Regenerist, and Luminous.
And with Olay Whips co-created with 15,000 women, the reviews are glowing so far. Read on to find out why, and click here to try an Olay Whip for yourself.
1. It feels light on your skin
“From the first application, I noticed how soft my skin was.” – Michelle
Moisturisers that promise powerful results can often feel heavy, and many women prefer a lighter touch. However more delicate moisturisers can often feel “watered down”. This is where Olay Whips are different.
“This new technology effectively re-writes the rules on how to formulate a facial moisturiser,” says Olay principal scientist Dr Frauke Neuser. “Previously, there were two main ways when it came to adapting skin creams – adding either more oils or more water to change the feel and finish of the cream.
“Olay Whip’s Active Rush TechnologyTM is a new third way, creating a unique 3D structure in the jar and on the skin, and enabling a smooth, matte, light-as-air finish.”
So Olay Whips offer the best of both worlds, simply leaving you with fresh, clean and seriously soft skin after just one use!
2. It absorbs super-fast
“I can apply my make-up straight away and it stays in place ALL day – #timesaver.” – Penny
Heavy moisturisers tend to sit on the skin, taking longer to sink in. But Olay Whip’s Active Rush TechnologyTM turns the cream into liquid on your skin, so it absorbs instantly.
This is invaluable when you’re running around trying to get yourself – and everyone else! – ready in the morning. So, like Penny, you can apply your make-up straight after using your Olay Whip of choice, without worrying about your foundation sliding off before you’ve even left the house.
3. You can say goodbye to shine
“Best of all… it’s matte so no more shine!” – Amy
Thick moisturisers can be over oily or greasy, meaning your skin gets that unappealing shiny look by mid-afternoon.
But the innovative texture of Olay Whip leaves your skin with a smooth, matte finish, so your skin is picture-perfect all day long. So long shiny face!
4. You get the same great anti-ageing results
“Have been using it for a week and WOW, what a difference!” – Angela
Olay Whips are available with or without SPF in the Regenerist, Total Effects and Luminous varieties, and so offer the same tried-and-tested youth-restoring benefits as always. Which one you choose depends on your skincare needs – so which Whip is right for you?

This Whip diminishes the look of fine lines and wrinkles while hydrating your skin to firm, lift and improve elasticity. Its Amino-Peptide Complex II also regenerates surface cells for that fresh-faced look and feel.
The multi-tasker: Olay Total Effects Whip Moisturiser
