Well.. X-mas to me has always been around plum cakes & pastries 😀
Moving on, today I am reviewing Olay’s Quench Body Wash.
I picked this one specially for the winters… read on to know more how good it fared.
Price: INR 210 for 354 ml. (Strange quantity..I know ;p)
Shelf life: 3 yrs.
The below pic will give you the full list of ingredients.
It comes in a tall opaque white container with a lilac flip-open cap. The bottle is shaped like that of a woman’s body ;p
There are no small sizes of this body wash that is available & hence not really a good idea to travel around with this huge & heavy body wash.
The product is delivered through a medium-sized nozzle which is good to control the quantity of body wash required.
What the product claims:
Check out the below pic for the same.
The way I see it:
This is my first body wash from Olay.
I got this product delivered from an online shopping site, so was quite thrilled to know its fragrance.
It has a pleasant fragrance something characteristic to Olay… I am not really able to say which one it is though.. its got a mild perfume kinda smell to it.
The body wash is of shower cream consistency in white and one press of the container gives out a dollop of the product – which is good enough for a single wash.
The product lathers really really well & is best used with a loofah or a bath mitt.
I have tried it without a loofah once too & liked it then too.. meaning it lathese pretty well without a loofah too & does not feel slimy.
Coming to the tall hydration claims from Olay, as mentioned they are ‘tall’.
The product provides moisturization to the body post-wash, but nothing that would let you skip your daily body lotion.
The dryness is less when compared with normal soaps for sure.
I have been using this product for 2 weeks now & shall continue to use it throughout the winters.
I have normal-dry skin & have been using body wash for a month now – and definitely say that there is no choice/chance of missing one’s moisturizer after using this product.
Let me also mention I tend to get bored easily with body wash/shower gels – since this is a huge sized one, I haven’t even managed to complete half of it yet.
So, one bottle might last you for 2 seasons if you stick to use it only during the dry months or last almost 6-7 months if used daily.
I am already bored with this one – and just waiting to finish this off 🙂
I believe this product would be suitable for highly humid climatic conditions during the summers.
The ‘Yes’ factors:
- Good packaging
- Great pricing for such huge quantity
- Mild fragrance
- Slight hydration
- Lathers really well
- Free from parabens
- One will get bored trying to finish the product
- No smaller sizes available
- Not travel friendly
- 24 hrs. hydration is too tall a claim
