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!
