Many thanks to Olay for sending me their new line to try, and for sponsoring this post! As always, the honest thoughts & opinions expressed below are entirely my own.
Like most of the woman I know, I’ve gone through COUNTLESS different types of body wash. My husband at one time had to sit me down to ask why I needed 4 different brands of body washes crowding our already small tub. I have high standards for a body wash because I take my skin care very seriously. It needs to smell nice, lather up REALLY well, and leave my skin feeling soft, smooth and refreshed & Olay’s Fresh Outlast Collection fits all of my requirements.
I kid you not guys, these body washes leave my skin silky smooth & the actual lather it produces in the shower is amazing. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been disappointed by a body wash’s lather, or lack thereof. There’s just something about being absolutely covered in bubbles that makes me feel 100x more clean and refreshed.
So, what makes this body wash different from the hundreds of others that are currently out there?
The fresh outlast collection has a scent for every preference. Your shower should be something you look forward to, not just an everyday task that needs to be done. I think a body wash scent sets the tone for a shower. For example, the generic soaps that they give you at some hotels make me feel like I’m back in middle school showering after practice with their really bland “bar soap” kind of smell. I need a lot more than bland and boring when it comes to what I want to smell like after a shower & I’m not alone – Olay surveyed over 1,000 women in January and 75% of them cited fragrance as one of the top reasons they opt for body wash over other cleansing forms and that “scent boredom” is the #1 reason they change products.
Olay’s Fresh Outlast Collection has 6 unique scents to choose from and I’ve tried them all.
Soothing Orchid & Black Currant, Purifying Birchwater & Lavender, Energizing Lime & White Tea, Crisp Pear & Fuji Apple, Cooling White Strawberry & Mint, & Invigorating Champagne & White Mango.
I can honestly say this is the first time I’ve fallen in love with a body wash & it actually makes me look forward to showering. I also love the range of scents they offer. Some days I want a fruity body wash, while others I prefer floral notes and this line has it all. I’ve even pressured my husband to try to the less girly-scented lime scent. And by pressured, I mean forced by handing it to him while he was in the shower.
