In-Shower Body Lotion
Ultra Moisture with Shea Butter
Olay Ultra Moisture In-Shower Body Lotion works with the warmth and humidity of your shower to reveal soft, smooth skin after 1 use. Daily use will improve hydration of dry skin in 5 days!
Skipping the First Impressions post, I went ahead and took this baby for a test run and, boy, am I impressed. Consider me hooked. LOL. I’ll probably sound like a marketer pushing you to buy it, too. BUT I can’t help it. I love the this body lotion!
The Olay Body In-Shower Body Lotion has been a fabulous buy. I had qualms in putting it in my cart that day but I’ve been constantly daring myself to broaden my horizon in terms of beauty products. I don’t want to simply stick with a normal beauty regimen esp if I’m still searching for the right combination. Besides, I like experimenting even when it means spending more than I have to. Sigh. But, happy thoughts! Had I not leaped, I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to discover the luxurious feeling that this product can give.
I love taking baths and showers. I’d be more inclined to buy bath products than makeup actually. I love the idea of cleansing and skincare. I guess that’s one of the things I tend to obsess about. However, I do recall having said that I find putting on lotion tiresome at times esp when it’s warm. I drop the task and simply risk directly exposing my skin to sun and harsh elements. It’s simply because if it’s warm, I’ll end perspiring as I am putting on the lotion, hence, feeling all sticky afterwards. So, discovering this product is like a gift from the heavens.
: Step 1. Cleanse with body wash or bar soap, as usual, then rinse. Step 2. Dispense product into hand and smooth over wet skin. Start with a quarter size amount for each area of the body (adjust as needed). Step 3. Rinse. Step 4. Pat dry with towel.
The creamy texture makes it a little tricky to apply since it tends to slide off my palm. I really had to apply it evenly while carefully massaging the skin. Upon application, you can instantly feel the moisture; the skin certainly feels hydrated. After patting your skin dry, you won’t lose the feeling of soft, supple, and moisturised skin.
When it comes to the scent, it gets a 4 out of 5 stars from me. It may take a bit of time to get used to for some but if you like the vanilla scent, you’ll like this product’s scent, too. It definitely doesn’t smell citrus-y or fruity or floral.
The packaging is not bad, too. I love big bottles. It’s quite efficient to have the dispenser at the bottom. Makes it possible to use every little bit of it til the last drop.
: Use after cleansing with Olay Bar or Olay Body Wash
Taking their advise, I bought myself an Olay soap bar. It’s actually an Olay Body Ultra Moisture Soap Bar (with Shea Butter), an actual companion to the In-Shower Body Lotion. I haven’t tried using them together, though. So, I’ll probably tell more about this soap later on.
Anyway, I didn’t know that there’s a In-Shower products (skincare) trend. I happen to stumble upon Clean & Clear’s In-Shower Facial last week. I guess women are starting to spend more and more time in the bathroom now, eh? Believe me, I totally understand why cuz I’m guilty of that as well.
Anyway, verdict for the In-Shower Body Lotion? I’d recommend it to you beauties who love the feeling of a moisturised skin AND if you love let the luxurious feeling of bath to linger. I love using it at night before going to bed, too. Apart from pampering my skin after a long day, the sheets feel extra nice, too. Hehe.
