I can chart the stages of my life by the kind of body wash I used at the time. When I was a teen, I was really into fruity scents. When I was in my twenties, I loved food fragrances. And now that I’m 30…well, I really look at a product in a different way altogether.

Instead of just focusing on fragrance, it’s become so much more than that. Will this be a body wash that moisturizes? Will it leave my skin feeling squeaky clean, or will it leave my feeling silky soft?

As I’ve grown older, and moved to a new climate I notice changes in my skin. I’m more prone to dryness, flaking, and itchy skin. And like I just said in my previous post – I want to age beautifully, both inside and out. Part of that means taking better care of my skin. Teenage Afrobella may not have known how awesome Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 Advanced Anti-Aging Body Wash is…but adult Afrobella sure does!

I’ve been a fan of just about everything Olay since the days of using Mama Bella’s Oil of Olay, and the love has only increased with each product I’ve tried. Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 Advanced Anti-Aging Body Wash comes in two formulas — Deep Penetrating Moisture and Exfoliate and Replenish. The Deep Penetrating Moisture is giving my skin pure life right now!

It’s a mildly scented product, so it won’t clash with your favorite perfumes. It’s just a clean, fresh, not overpowering, entirely pleasant scent. Less is more – just a little squiggle of product on a loofah or bath sponge is enough to work up a really decadent, delicious lather. The back of the package lists seven anti-aging benefits, and I swear I’m already checking them off the list. Improves elasticity, check. Relieves dryness, check. Deeply moisturizes, check!

My favorite part of Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 Advanced Anti-Aging Body Wash is the end of my shower. The moisturizing effects are immediately apparent — lately I haven’t even been wearing body lotion after I use this wash, which is good news for me in this sweltering summer heat. It’s like my skin is moisturized from within, so I don’t have to slather something extra on that will just melt in the sun anyway. Double score.

The best part of all of this? The price. An 8.4 oz bottle is $5.99. I’m comparing that to the overpriced fruit and food-fragranced washes I was obsessed with in my younger years, and SMH at myself.

You deserve to try Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 Advanced Anti-Aging Body Wash . And if you stay tuned till tomorrow, you just might be able to win a chance! Stay tuned, bellas!

What’s your favorite Olay product?

SOLD! That sounds amazing. My skin is still dry in the super humid and hot summers of DC and wearing lotion actually makes my skin look dull in this kind of weather so this sounds perfect.

Quite frankly until recently, I use to believe Olay of Olay was only for my mom and grandma. Well, now that I am a woman of a certain age. AND I an aspiring entrepreneur with very long hours, Olay of Olay's Regenerist Eye firming serum is a must-have item! Based on your review, I will definitely try out their body wash.

I understand what you mean when you say your skin changed after moving to a different climate. I had a similar experience after moving and hopefully this product will be a solution for me. I will try it. Thanks!
