Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 Advanced Anti-Aging Body Washes AND Shaves

Published in: Just For Fun

[big yawn] Good morning, young lady. 🙂 How did you sleep? Are you ready to tackle Thursday with me?


Before we jump into the rat race today, do you remember last month’s Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 Advanced Anti-Aging Body Wash giveaway?

MBB reader Christy won Olay’s 1) Deep Penetrating Moisture and Exfoliate and 2) Replenish body washes and had a few things to say about them…

At first sniff, it’s a very pleasant scent — reminiscent of their face washes. Once in the shower, though, it started to remind me of that gum I chewed long ago, Bubblicious, mixed with a soft floral. The wash itself is of a nice creamy texture, and since I received a free sample (thank you, Olay), I used a LOT on my first run. Even though I have stubborn skin, it did feel smoother after my first use — but we do have to keep in mind that petrolatum and mineral oil are the main ingredients, so that accounts for much of the moisturised feeling.

There isn’t much of a difference between the one that exfoliates and the one that deeply moisturises – the exfoliating granules are so minute – but I’d purchase the latter as it doubles for a fantastic soothing shaving lotion. All in all, I would recommend the product as the thick formula does make you feel pampered.

Thanks, Christy. I took your advice and tried using the Deep Penetrating formula as a shaving cream. Good call! The rich lotion tamed my Venus razor.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    Worth a try … maybe when the cold weather dies down (ive found that the Dove body washes agree w/ my skin at winter) … ill give that a try.

    Speaking of shaving — im getting frustrated. Im currently using Venus Breeze and I feel like it doesnt work for me. Might be psychological … iono …

      I totally get what you mean. I’ve tried the Venus Breeze and there’s something about the shape of the razor… maybe it’s too bulky? I’ve had better luck with the Venus Embrace and the old school Venus (the one with *only* three blades, LOL!).

      Did you hear that Dove now makes stuff for dudes? I think I’ll have to buy some and put it in the shower with the hopes that El Hub tries it, LOL!

    Oh! It sounds like it smells really good. I like when things smell like candy or dessert items.

    I’ll keep an eye out on the ultra moisturizing formula so I can shave with it – love multi-tasking products. It keeps me efficient!
