Olay Body Wash and $50

Time to give a big shout-out to a product that has changed my life. It's the simple things, right? Well this body wash has simply been a life-changer! Like most women, it seems I have a cream for every part of my body -- a daytime moisturizer, a primer, a toner, an eye cream, night cream, you get the idea, the list goes on. I am all about saving a little time and energy where I can, especially since I need to cater to a newborn and busy two-year-old these days! Well, OlayÆ Ultra Moisture Body Wash certainly helps save time! The people of Olay brilliantly added a jar of moisturizer into every. single. bottle. So glad someone finally had that "ah ha!" moment. It's so nice to skip extra moisturizing, which allows me more time for the more important things in life. I just love how this body wash makes my skin feel. So smooth, soft and moisturized. Can you say creamy? Usually I get out of the shower feeling parched and my skin feels thirsty. Especially in the winter it feels super dry and almost itchy! I always attributed that to my 120-degree water, but this body wash has seriously revolutionized my daily routine. I also love how it lathers. It's a dream. A little goes a long way for sure. Not only is it economical (you save on moisturizer and it lasts forever) but it also smells wonderful. My two-year-old likes it too. She says "Mommy, I smell yummy!" So cute and so right. Can't get over how soft and smooth this makes my skin. Seriously a must, people! Let's talk about how much I love saving time on my beauty routine. Do I sound like a broken record? It's pretty much a must these days.

I simplify my morning beauty routine by really keeping makeup very simple. I only wear blush and lip gloss on any given day, sometimes concealer if my skin needs it, and mascara only on special occasions!

Hmmm...hard for me to simplify, but I would say a ponytail (I know, not original). I am going to have to get this body wash!!

I really cherish my sleep, so I like to shower at night. To keep my hair healthy, I wash it only 3x a week and just use dry shampoo. I have long hair, so not washing or blow-drying my hair everyday saves me a lot of time!

cw said...

At night, I shower and let my hair dry naturally...In the morning, I just refresh the curls with a little spritz. I put on lotion right after the shower too to help moisturize

I simplify my routine by using very little body wash so my skin doesn't dry out and I don't need to put on moisturizer. Would love to try the olay body wash with moisturizer. Thanks for the review and giveaway.
