Stinging reaction

Like some of the other reviewers, I too had the reaction of burning sensation and flakey skin with 24 hours. I been using products from krave beauty(most products), Avene cleanance anti blemishes concentrate and The ordinary (niacinamide, hyaluronic acid and retinol). I used this Olay cream at night for this first time and again this morning...but the irrigation remains. Washed off and applied my other lotions. Show details

Whip regenerist antioxidant

A few days after using this product my face started to sting. It didn't register at first that this was connected to using this product for the first time. My face continued to sting for days and when I searched for reviews on this site I realised other users have had the same experience. So I ceased immediately.
I have used other olay moisturisers for years with no issues prior to this. Show details

Disappointed

Love the texture, but it makes my eyes sting, even if I rub my eye hours after application. I so wanted to like this product but alas its not for me. Show details

Skin reaction

I bought this in the weekend and immediately my skin felt slightly stingy when I used it. I thought it may be a feature of the product but 2 days later my skin was breaking out and lumpy. Show details

It stings my eyes

It feels great on my skin, however even when I avoid putting it anywhere near my eyes during the day my eyes still water and sting. I know it is from the OLAY LUMINOUS Whip moisturiser because I have used other OLAY products and not had any problems. It has only happened on the days I applied the OLW moisturiser. I was devastated and surprised. Has anyone else had this problem? Dianne Show details

Bad! Bad! Bad!

I wish i checked the reviews first before buying it. Seems like most people are having the same reaction.

I used other olay products and they’re good but i tried this for a change and i got like a rash all over my face! I just used it thrice! I need to take an off from work today because I’m so ashamed to face people. This is not worth the try. And purchased it for $30. Show details

Bad reaction - don't recommend

I am not allergic to anything. However after the first 3 applications my face felt hot, burnt and itchy. This ended up giving me horrific wrinkles and dry flakes for 2 weeks. Really embarrassing. I thought it was a reaction to the Covid shot so a few weeks later I tried it again. Same result. Show details

Good and Bad

Loved my first jar, beautiful fragrance, texture is amazing and it created a flawless base for my foundation. However, just got a new jar and it’s a totally different texture product, it made my face all hot and red, my foundation caked and wouldn’t set and in the end I had to fully wash my face remove everything and start again with another moisturiser. Devastated :(  Show details

Red and irritating

After using the product for a few days, my skin was irritated, red and hot. When I touch my face it felt like it’s quite dry. It made me dissatisfied I loved the fragrance and it was easy to apply. Show details

Inflamed, Irritated and Rashy

After a couple of days of use, my skin is irritated and tight; hot, sensitive and red (like sunburn) and I have a rash-like breakout all over my cheeks and neck. Applies nicely but disappointed that it didn't turn matte like expected. Combination skin.

**UPDATE: turns out I have malassezia foliculitis (aka. fungal acne) and fatty acids/ oils are a big no-no for my skin. Still not sure about the hot inflammation... might've been a reaction to the fragrances? Show details

smooth and smells heavenly

One fact I love about this product is it does not feel greasy at all! I put this on top of another lightweight moisturizer and it does not feel heavy! Show details

Terrible rash

I was terribly disappointed after using olay regenerist whip, at first it felt beautiful and light on my skin... slowly, a mild tingly feeling developed over my cheeks. I woke up with a terrible face rash that lasted 3-4 days. I was so depressed during those days, needles to say I won’t be buying this product ever again. Show details

Luminous Whip is amazing

I have the most sensitive skin when it comes to new products, I can break out into pimples and acne like boils if a product is too harsh. However I took the risk and tried this because I loved the fact that it had a ‘matte’ finish. It did not disappoint! It has a gorgeous texture and a lovely matte finish that makes me feel like I’m wearing a light pressed powder. It’s great under my makeup or on its own. I also used the SPF version of this cream when I was on vacation which has a more sunscreen type texture and a more shiny finish and it gave me a beautiful glow under my makeup all day, perfect holiday vibes. It’s a bit expensive for me but I enjoy it. Really happy that I didn’t get any pimples! Show details ·  1

Questions & Answers

Kim Cragg · Luminous Whip

Olay Luminous Whip UV SPF 30: Has anyone reported "electrical" sensations on their nose after sun exposure when they use this product? When I go on a walk at lunchtime, just after I return inside, I can feel sensations that feel like static electricity "crackling" around my nose for a minute or so just after I come inside, then it subsides. I've never felt this sensation before with any other product, and I don't use any other products on my face during the day, so it's not another layered product causing the effect.

Why does Olay Whip sting my eyes? Even if I don't put it near my eyes, it still stings my eyes and makes them water.
