Olay Quench Body Wash – Review!

Hello all..Merry X-mas! Had a plum cake??

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.

Ingredients:

The below pic will give you the full list of ingredients.

Packaging:

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
 
The ‘Nay’ factors:
  • One will get bored trying to finish the product
  • No smaller sizes available
  • Not travel friendly
  • 24 hrs. hydration is too tall a claim
 
HnB rating: 4/5
Repurchase? – No… I am just hoping to finish this off soon 🙂
Recommend? – This would work in very humid climates like Chennai or Mumbai during summers when one can skip their moisturizes in hurry.
