Olay Body Wash Plus Creme Ribbons

Olay Body Wash Plus Creme Ribbons

I have been a huge fan of Olay Body Wash Plus Body Butter Ribbons, but lately, I was having a hard time finding this in local stores. So, after a lot of debate with myself, I decided to pick up the Olay Body Wash Plus Creme Ribbons. I loved the pink color of the packaging so much! So it won over the Olay Body Wash – Spa Exfoliating Ribbons , plus it being winter-ish still here, I wanted a crème formula rather than the exfoliating one.

My Take on Olay Body Wash Plus Creme Ribbons:

I like this, but not as much as the Olay Body Wash Plus Body Butter Ribbons, which is far more moisturising. It sure goes on smoothly and I also LOVED its texture.  It is creamy and feels wonderful! That is the least I would expect from Olay, but what they claim on their website “Feel it hush over you like rose petals floating in a Venetian bath.” Excuse me? That was a bit too much of an exaggeration! Granted, I haven’t had a “Venetian bath” (yet :hihi: ), but my imagination is very vivid, thank you, and I think I can imagine how floating in rose petals would feel.  So, I do not appreciate when such tall claims are made. Stick to the basics Olay, you do deliver in the basic department! No point increasing our expectations beyond the product’s capabilities. Oh, don’t get me wrong please, I still do love you, Olay; I’m just giving constructive criticism. :toothygrin:

I love it’s crème ribbons, they are pretty visible too, as in the image and you can feel it too if you take the product between your fingers.

Also, just a tiny dollop lathers up pretty well and it just keeps getting foamier, the more water you add, loving that! It feels very moisturizing during the shower but loses that feel after 1 or 2 hours, at least in winters. So, if you are using this, you would need an after-bath body lotion too because this alone will not help if you tend to be on the normal-to-dry side.

To sum it up:

What I Like about Olay Body Wash Plus Creme Ribbons:

  • It’s an Olay product, so the feel, fragrance and texture are so luxurious!
  • It does moisturize. The ribbons are not just a gimmick.
  • It lathers up very well, as you can see in the image, little surely goes a long way.
  • I think it’s a very good price for that quantity; this will last for quite some time, as you only would need a little.
  • Love the pink packaging, that Olay lady looks prettier with a pink background. :love: It looks pretty sitting on the counter.
  • Washes off well, doesn’t leave you feeling dry nor does it feel like you have some slick on your body that is not getting washed off.

What I Do Not Like about Olay Body Wash Plus Creme Ribbons:

• It’s not the best that Olay has to offer.
• I have to follow it up with a body lotion to lock in the moisture.
• It makes tall claims it cannot deliver.

Will I Purchase Olay Body Wash Plus Creme Ribbons Again?

No, I would rather purchase the Olay one with Body Butter Ribbons. I do not mind using it till it lasts, it’s not a total waste, but the next time, if I cannot find my favourite Body Butter Ribbons Olay, then I will purchase something else, but not this.

Rating:

3/5 (2 for not being that bad and + 1 for the pretty pink Olay lady; -2 for not being the best that Olay offers).
