Olay Total Effects Body Wash: Review and $10 Walmart Card Giveaway!

The weather this winter has wreaked complete havoc on my skin causing it to be abnormally dry and flakey. Couple that with the fact that I am about to turn 36 and you have one major need for skin revitalization! When My Blog Spark asked me to take a look at the new Olay Total Effects Body Wash, my skin was more than happy to oblige.

olaylogo A little about the body wash:

With jojoba butter and VitaNiacin, Olay Total Effects Body Wash – Deep Penetrating Moisture can help you get soft, smooth skin in one shower, improved elasticity in one week, and young-looking, radiant skin in one month. Proven effective in fighting multiple signs of aging, the exclusive VitaNiacin formula helps rejuvenate and beautify your skin while improving the condition of the skin´s moisture barrier. Also available is the Olay Total Effects Body Wash – Exfoliating and Replenish, which has micro-derm beads and VitaNiacin to help keep you looking and feeling young.”

olay Looking around the Olay site, I found a quiz you can take to determine your skin’s age.  To my surprise, this 36 year old has a “skin-age” of 24-33! YAY!  Nonetheless, it is never too early to take steps to protect your skin, right?  When first using the new body wash, I noticed how thick and creamy the body wash felt…. it just looks like it would nourish the skin.  The scent is also light and pleasant, definitely not overpowering and it lathers very well on my loofa.  After one week of using the body wash daily, I can actually feel a difference in my skin.  It is soft, smooth and appears less dry.
