Weather is enough to wipe out the softness in any skin. I like leather when it is on my car seats and dashboard, not my skin. Chances are my entire family keeps a body lotion company in business, because soft skin is important to me. The coupon for Olay Body products was colorful and offered $1 off the purchase of several Olay products. The one picture in the display that caught my eye was the lilac-colored container of Olay Body quench in-shower Body Lotion.
Even though Olay’s price exceeds my budget, I take advantage of sales and coupons to buy my favorite items. The local supermarket doubles coupons of $1or less. Olay Body quench in-shower Body Lotion was on sale for $1 off, so I saved $3 on my purchase. Even the women on “Extreme Couponing” would have been proud of me.
The lilac-colored plastic container stands straight up. This saves storage space and makes it less likely to trip over when getting out of the tub or shower. The flip cap is easy to open. The body, slim and easy to hold, tapers in towards the center to provide a good grip. There is an open O for Olay towards the top of the container, giving one more secure area to hold the body lotion.
The product is made in Canada, another area that benefits from good body lotion. The container holds 8.4 fluid ounces of creamy in-shower body lotion. The directions on the front advise users to go through their usual cleaning routine first and follow up by smoothing on the quench in-shower body lotion and rinsing it off. The fragrance smells like many Olay products. Is there a scent called Olay? If not, there should be, as many of their products have similar scents, all light and quite pleasant.
Some of the ingredients include water, which does not detract from the great consistency of the product, petrolatum, mineral oil, and fragrance. No specific fragrance is designated, which reaffirms my opinion it is fragrance of Olay. After showering, I put a small amount in my hand and rubbed it gently on my arms. The product rinsed right off. There is a warning about the lotion causing slipperiness, which I believe is a good warning. The company does not go ballistic over the warning. It is a caution that you would share with a friend.
I am quite pleased with Olay Body quench in-shower Body Lotion and award it 5 stars. I am also pleased that Proctor & Gamble is doing its part in helping many of us survive the economic crisis.
