Struggling with winter skin problems? Yea, I feel ya. With winter months my combination skin is always acting up. One day it is oily + I am breaking out and the next day I have dry skin + am peeling…sometimes you can’t win…or can you? 😉 I found my magic potion to cure my #winterskinproblems! What is it you ask? Olay Whips!
So here is my constant struggle + from chatting with my girlfriends it seems to be quite common…moisturizers are essential to achieve healthy skin but sometimes they make your skin oily. With my combination skin, I am always searching for a moisturizer that helps hydrate my skin but does so without feeling heavy on my skin…that’s why when I discovered Olay Whips I was super excited to give it a go.
Olay Whips (available now at Walgreen’s) feel light as air and are delightfully whipped for instant absorption on your skin. The weightless formula leaves your skin feeling soft & smooth with a matte finish (making your skin smooth to the touch). Honestly what I love most about this product is that it almost acts as a primer too, applying your makeup after applying Olay Whips goes on beyond smooth.
If you are opting to go all natural with your beauty look + just go out with nothing but your moisturizer on, luckily Olay Whips has a brightening formula which helps even your skin tone + minimize the appearance of pores! This is a major win for me – I have been applying Olay Whips before the gym + I look like I am glowing while working up a sweat spinning.
With a price tag under $30, Olay Whips is a MUST to add to your skin routine. Check out the full line of whip options at Walgreen’s and you’ll see just what I’m talking about! Click HERE!

Happy Thursday Loves! Time to share my current beauty obsessions with you guys. I am constantly trying new beauty products in search of the ‘end all’ for my skin and makeup routine…I think recently, I just about found it! To start, I am a firm believer that your scent remains in the room well after you exit…what does that mean? Make it memorable, and with Juicy Couture’s new ‘Gold Couture’ fragrance…you are definitely bound to leave a scent that is sensual, sultry and berry berry good (had to make a slight witty line…the perfume has a fabulous hint of wild berries).
My next obsession? Kypris Beauty products. I LOVE the Kypris Beauty Elixir 1…made with 1,000 organic Bulgarian Roses (perfect for Melissa Rose huh? My middle name is Rose…little fun fact), this elixir helps provide the right amount of moisture to aid in perfecting that dewy complexion us ladies are always after! The other fabulous potion I tried? The Antioxidant Dew. It helps rebalance your complexion…something that is well needed after all the pollution this fashionista experiences commuting in and out of NYC! I’ve discovered over the past few months that the key to flawless makeup really is healthy skin. That means using products that help well moisturize your skin all over…that’s why Boots Botanics Deeply Moisturizing Body Lotion and Boots Botanics Deeply Moisturizing Hand Cream are my current goto.
Once you make your skin baby soft, it’s all about fixing up that complexion. Boots No 7 CC Cream and Youthful Eye Serum are great ways to help remove discoloration, under eye bags and to brighten up your skin…making it ready for makeup application.
There’s something about the perfect mix of skincare that even beauty products like foundation and bronzer can’t enhance. Like many beauty lovers will tell you…while what makeup products you use may be important, the true beauty routine begins with your skin routine. It’s taken me a while to master this concept…I’m not afraid to admit it, but I’m the queen of concealer and coverup rather than simply using the right products underneath to try and correct any issues with my skin.
However during my recent trip to Lucky Fabb West, Olay was there promoting their new line of ‘Fresh Effects‘ products…that are light, gentle and make me feel fresh and rejuvenated in just one application! 🙂 Read more
