8 Tips for Cutting Down your Getting Ready Time in the Morning | Olay Regenerist Whips

Happy Friday guys! If you’re anything like me, the struggle of fitting everything you need to in 24 hours is real.  So wasting time on extra steps when you could kill two birds with one stone?  No, please.  (Digressing a bit here, but it just hit me how violent that saying is… the poor birds!)

8 Tips for Cutting Down your Getting Ready Time in the Morning | Olay Regenerist Whips

I recently got the chance to try a product that has shortened my morning skincare routine, and I’m all about the time it’s saved me and results it’s delivered!  When I first read that it was the ‘unicorn of moisturizers’, I was a bit skeptical, but also really excited to try it… I mean, who wouldn’t be with that nickname?!

The product? Olay Regenerist Whip.

It’s a whipped moisturizer that absorbs with zero down time and doubles as a matte primer.  It also has a slew of other amazing benefits!  There are 3 types of whips, and I have been using the Regenerist option.  That means that it has wrinkle smoothing benefits yet is still a lightweight moisturizer that can be used day and night.  But I should mention, while Olay Whips is super light-weight and fast absorbing, it is still incredibly hydrating!  You’re not sacrificing anything for it being light-weight!

It also manages shine and pore size throughout the day – so that 3pm blotting sesh?  Yea, you can go grab coffee #2 or #3 instead.  I’m all about glowing, but shine is a totally different ballgame and it is not attractive.  Eliminating that and having time to caffeinate in the afternoon sounds like another win to me!

8 Tips for Cutting Down your Getting Ready Time in the Morning | Olay Regenerist Whips

So in celebration of Olay Regenerist Whip cutting down your getting ready time in the morning, I decided to put together a list of a few more ways to do just that!  We already covered tip #1, but I’ve 7 more for you:

2) Pick Out Your Outfit the Night Before – I can’t fathom how even after becoming a blogger and nearly tripling my closet since that happened, how I still having mornings where I feel like I have nothing to wear!?  But it’s a real struggle, and it can tack on an extra 10-30 minutes in the morning, depending what I’m getting ready for and how important it is to look put together – a lot of time saved by planning the night before!

3) Make a ‘Get Out the Door To-Do List‘ – And make it the night before!  This will keep you on track and help you not get side-tracked doing things that really aren’t a priority!

4) Prep Things While You Do Other Things – Brew your coffee while you wash your face, let your hair tools heat up while you do your makeup, ect.  It helps you make the most out of every second!

5) Avoid Checking Your Phone – This will most likely distract and slow you down.  If you can help it, save checking email and texts for after you’re out the door!

6) Shower First – This will not only wake you up, but will also give your hair time to dry while you do other things, ultimately cutting down on your blow-dry time!  If you can swing it, even try showering the night before!

7) Have Everything Packed and Ready – If you’re taking a purse or business bag or whatever, have it packed and by the door the night before.  Same goes for breakfast and lunch, and your keys!  Making decisions or looking for things can take up so much unnecessary time in the AM, and you’re likely to think more clearly and be more awake packing the night before!

8)  Have Alarms Set – for 20 minutes before you need to leave and 10 minutes before you need to leave.  This will keep you on track and get you moving fast again if you got distracted or slowed down!

Do you do any of these?  Or have any other tips I should try out?  Let me know in the comments below!  And as always, thanks for reading!

    I will definitely try to plan my outfit the night before as this is always an issue for me! Also need to leave my phone alone in the morning!

    I just went on a tour with P&G who makes Olay products and was blown away by this moisturizer. The Regenerist line sells so many moisturizers and it literally compares and exceeds even high end department store brands. I saw first hand how this product is made and the research and testing that goes into it and I was blown away. I love the original Regenerist moisturizer but if you are looking for something lighter and in the daytime, the Whip version is your answer. I love how it goes on smooth and is matte. It is also very hydrating. Why pay more for a luxury brand when Olay does it all and more at half the cost! xoxo, Christine

My T zone gets oily in the afternoon and this matte finish is perfect for me yet hydrates my skin. Thanks for the tips on getting ready in the morning. I am always rush in the morning and all these tips are practical.

    My sister uses Olay for so many years and she swears that is the best thing ever. I always wanted to try it but I am terrible with skin care. I need to give Olay a try and see if my skin would look as gorgeous as yours! Thanks for sharing your tips!

    Hey beauty,
    How are you? I love this! Such a unique and amazing idea of a post. I have to admit that I take forever to get ready in the morning. Even when I try to hurry up I’m always running slightly late. Play is one of my favorite brands and I actually do own a few products from them and I think they work wonderful! I’m also a huge fan of trying out new creams because I believe it’s a great way to become more familiar with other products! Thank you so much for sharing, I loved it!!

    Xoxo, vanessa

The Regenerist version sounds like it my work as a great night treatment for me. No wonder your skin is so perfect!

    I love saving time! I love that the Olay whips doubles as a whipped moisturizer and a matte primer! You also listed some great tips that I need to follow! Every morning, I have NOTHING to wear! I really should choose my clothes for the next morning day before! I should also probably not look at my phone so much. Ha!
