For all your beauty advice…
I need another product like I need a hole in the head! But, since I’m always on the lookout for a good deal, I felt I could completely justify this purchase. I’ve discovered at places like Target and Wal-Mart, that if you browse the end caps of the aisle near the back wall, you can find all kinds of fun stuff on clearance. I have also discovered that they’re not products that are old or discontinued, but it’s usually stuff that has been bundled together by the manufacturer as a gift set. Since the stores can’t take apart the gift set and sell the items separately, they have to put the set on sale to get it out of the store. Not so good for the manufacturer, but fantastic for the consumer!
I picked up a gift set that included a razor by Venus, Secret Flawless deodorant and a 10 oz. bottle of Olay Body Wash Plus Creme Ribbons. This set was on sale for $7…not too bad considering the average total retail price of all three products would equal $19. I have been wanting to try this body wash by Olay. The commercials are cool and the wash looks pretty in the packaging…I’m a sucker for packaging. So, I figured to get all three products at $7, I couldn’t lose. And, I couldn’t wait to try the body wash.
For some of us, a shower is the main start to our day and we want to get in, get out, and get on with our lives. I am like that most of the time, but every now and then, I like to take my time in the shower and enjoy the products I have in there. I was definitely in this frame of mind when I tried this wash for the first time. The best way to use it is to put some on one of those mesh shower puffs and lather up. The consistency of this product is really nice and creamy. It’s almost like a lotion that lathers up…and does it lather! I love suds, the more the better, and this product definitely delivered in that area! It smelled really nice, in fact, it made my whole bathroom smell really nice for a long time after I was done showering.
It does claim that after prolonged use, your skin will feel more moisturized and you probably won’t need lotion. That may be for more humid climates, but I don’t care how moisturizing a body wash claims to be, this is Colorado and our skin needs lotion here! After using it, my skin did feel really soft and it smelled good, too. Not too strong of a scent, nice and subtle. It can also be used as a shaving cream, which left my legs feeling great after I shaved with it.
Ok, I think I spent way too much time in the shower trying this product, but I really like it. It definitely gets a thumbs up from me and doesn’t feel like a drug store product at all. With all the suds and the nice scent to go along with it, it felt pretty luxurious. On its own, it retails for about $5. I know I paid $7 and got three full size products, but I will for sure spend $5 on this in the future. Totally worth it, give it a try if you haven’t already! I haven’t even tried the other two products that came with it, but I’ll let you know what I think of those when I do!
Have you tried Olay Body Wash Plus With Creme Ribbons? What did you think? What are your favorite body washes to use? I look forward to your responses so I can go out and try those, too!
