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.
If you’ve read my last blog post you already know how obsessed I’ve become with Olay’s Fresh Outlast Collection of body washes. But it’s a healthy addiction, because who’s ever said “Oh you shower too much” or “You shouldn’t care about the products you use on your skin”.
Since becoming a Mama bear my shower time has become my “me time” where I escape for a whole 10-15 minutes (& 10-15 minutes can either feel like 2 seconds, or 2 years with 2 boys). Many women use time in the shower to unwind after a long day, brainstorm, set the mood for a night out or simply to enjoy a little time alone. In my case that doesn’t last very long & it’s only a matter of minutes before I hear a little hand on the door trying desperately to get in just to say “Hi Mama! You showering?!?” I tell him “Yes, but I’ll be out in a minute” and Kai responds with a shrug saying “Ok mama… See you later!” only to come back and repeat the same conversation 2 minutes later.
A shower should be your sacred place. Not just a place to clean up quick and move on to the next chore. Shouldn’t the quality of your body wash be reflective of how you want to start your day? Scents are incredibly powerful. Your mood changes from day to day, and so does your scent preference. On days where I need to be up early and 100% on top of it with my very active boys I like to use Energizing Lime & White Tea & on the days where I want to unwind and relax I’ll use Soothing Orchid & Black Currant or Purifying Birchwater & Lavender.
Each scent gives you a different shower experience, leaves you with an incredibly refreshed feeling and can even set the tone for the rest of your day.
If you’re more active, & love going on new adventures and trying new workouts/sports, then you’d probably love their Energizing Lime & White Tea scent. If you’re a romantic, their Soothing Orchid & Black Currant might be perfect for you. They have a scent for everyone and you can find yours by taking their short quiz at olayscentpersona.com or clicking here.
