How To Skim 5 Minutes Off Your Morning Routine

As any new parent will tell you, life with a newborn certainly takes some adjusting to. But honestly, it’s the best thing I’ve ever done! I don’t want her to get any bigger, and I could seriously hang out staring at her all day for the rest of my life. However, at some point reality knocks, and I actually have to get dressed and get out of the house. I’m just starting to get back into the swing of doing some light work, catching up on emails, shooting some new blog content with Mackenzie, and taking an easy coffee meeting or two. Getting ready is always a process for us women, but even if you’re not a new mum, we could all do with shaving a few minutes off our morning routines, don’t you think?

I’ve talked about Olay on the blog before (check out my review here), and their Olay Regenerist Whip has become one of my go-to products over the last few weeks. It’s a multitasking moisturizer that is lightweight yet super hydrating, and the texture almost feels like whip cream (yum!). My favorite part about it is that it soaks into your skin immediately, so that you don’t have to wait for it to dry before applying your makeup. Plus, it has a special formula that acts almost like a no-primer primer, making my makeup routine shorter, absorbing my skin’s oils throughout the day, which helps to avoid that 3pm shine. I typically use a primer before putting on my foundation, so being able to skip it is a huge help, but my makeup still holds well and my skin doesn’t get oily after hours of wear. With my limited time these days, I’ve been living on this stuff.

When I get ready in the morning, I’ll cleanse, tone, and layer Olay Whips on – before moving immediately into a lightweight foundation or tint, which is my favorite these days. The less layers and steps, the better. Want to try it? Grab one for yourself at Walgreens here, and tell me what you think!

    Enjoy your husband and your child like you are. It is no joke when older people tell you to do that. It’s the best thing to do in life.

    You look smashing! I need to get that Whip!

    Absolutely we don’t have much time in mornings but these simple steps are quite necessary for our skin as it hydrates and prepping our skin for entire day.
    I’ve never tried this , definitely give it a try ASAP.

    Is this Olay Regenerist whip only for make up users? I am 54 years old and I am starting to see wrinkles around my eyes. Not a make up user but for a good face moisturizer.

    Definitely a must moisturizer! Im on my 2nd olay whip and i really like it. The texture is so light, non-greasy and feels so natural in my face. I love it!!!
