olay moisture ribbons body wash shea + manuka honey

Thank you Olay Moisture Ribbons Plus Body Wash for turning me into a soft cotton ball!

A crisp beauty backdrop:

I have super dry skin. And if you’re a regular reader of my blog, you know how annoying I may get fretting about my dry skin condition here on the blog. But I can’t help it, especially because I used to be one of those girls, who was diligent about her moisturizing routine. But since having my little princess, I’ve had a lot less time for myself and my skincare routine has become pretty much non-existent.

The only effort I really make is cleansing my face and taking a shower every morning, at least I’m getting the most important things done, right? Standing in the bathroom for long just to apply body lotion and then wait to let it sink into my skin, is no more my cup of tea. And so arises the issue of scaly legs and scratchy back!

But not anymore! How Olay moisture body wash has helped me regain my silky, soft skin without spending any time on moisturizers or body lotions in shower, read review:

How’s my experience with the product?

olay moisture ribbons body wash shea + manuka honeyOlay moisture ribbons plus body wash comes in a big 532 ml bottle, which is bigger than Kim Kardashian’s ego! It’s a honey-hued, inverted oval-shaped bottle with a flip-open cap. The texture is thick and creamy, which makes it looks and feels like you are applying soft creamy butter on skin.

I wasn’t sure if this thick and creamy body wash would produce sufficient lather for a satisfying cleansing experience. But boy I was wrong and for the good! The moisturizing body wash lathers well and gets me squeaky clean. Even though, it’s a thick and creamy formula, it rinses off thoroughly and easily.

I even tried to see how it would work as an emergency shave cream, and it worked great. Since, the lather is rich and luxuriant, only a small amount of body wash is required for one time use. Now considering the size and price of the bottle, you’re definitely getting a good deal.

This creamy body wash has made a big difference to the look and feel of my skin. I can especially see the change on my legs, which now look and feel soft with silky, smooth skin.

What’s good about it?

  • Rich, creamy texture
  • Feels luxurious to the skin and senses
  • Magnificent sweet honey scent
  • Does not dry out the skin
  • No separate body lotion required if you use this body wash in spring, summer, or fall months
  • Leaves skin looking and feeling soft and smooth
  • Highly affordable

What’s not so good about it?

The only beef I have about this product could be the packaging. The large inverted bottle and loose flip-open cap makes it inconvenient or rather impossible to travel with. Because of this, I’m glad it stays in my shower, where I don’t have to worry about carrying it or the product ending soon, signaling to replace the bottle. Another thing could be – its rich creamy texture and warm fragrance may not make this body wash a much desirable option in hot, summer months.

Who would like this body cleanser?

You might like Olay Moisture Ribbons Plus body was if:

  1. ….you love cream body washes
  2. ….you have persistent dry skin like me
  3. ….you don’t like applying body lotion after shower
  4. ….you feel like you deserve a warm, special treat
