Blab about Beauty Tuesday: Olay Body total effects shower cream + body butter review

by - Tuesday, May 15, 2012

My thoughts: I've never tried any Olay products before, so when I saw this body wash on sale, I took the opportunity to try it. I liked the fact that it is both a wash and a moisturiser in the same product, because I am far too lazy to slap on some moisturiser after a shower, it's just too much effort!

It claims to give you more luminous skin with its nourishing shower cream and brightening body butter. It also states that is will help to remove impurities and scrub away dead skin cells. Personally, I found that it didn't do that. In fact, it did the exact opposite- it clogged my pores.

After first use, I thought it was a potential product I could fall in love with- it smelled wonderful and was incredibly refreshing and invigorating. The only thing I didn't like about the formula was that its too sloppy. Well, that was until I started breaking out in zits a few days after use. After I stopped using it, my skin returned to normal.

So, for this product it's a big thumbs down. I doubt I'd try any of their other products even if I got them for free. Highly disappointed. Sorry Olay, I did not love the skin I was in.
