Hello Lovelies!! How are you all doing?? I’m sure terrific :*.
Here I am, back again with a review one of the most essential skin care (or rather, body care) product; The Olay Moisture Ribbons Body Wash, which claims to be a body wash, body lotion and a shaving lotion too!!! Phew! That is actually a lot to claim. I had two body washes of olay earlier. One was a crème ribbon formula with rose and almond oils, and another was body butter one. Liked both much better than the rest of the body washes available in the market. This one, on the other hand, does not have rose oil, and has a lot of claims to answer for. So, ready, steady, PO!!! (Chennai Express Ishtyle!! Oops sorry, bad joke I know).
Packaging, Quantity, Price and Description:
The Olay moisture ribbons body wash comes in a pink inverted oval shaped bottle. The tradition olay lady is missing (I wonder why?). Instead there are ribbons. You can see for yourself in the picture.
Its a flip top bottle, which is not a pain to open like most of them are. Also, I have been using this for around 10 days, and the product does not accumulate much on the mouth.
It comes in a 295 ml bottle at a price of Rs. 190, which is pretty reasonable if you ask me, as the bottle is going to last you for a long time. I wish they came with smaller size bottles too, which would have been travel friendly, anyway, that is another thing.
Description: (To save your time, I have added my own twists to the description, so that the claims are reviewed simultaneously ; mine are in normal font, the official claims are in italics, enjoy)
“If you like the feel of a creamy moisturizer, use Olay body wash plus crème ribbons. The first body wash to add an actual ribbon of skin crème, it improves the look of skin in just five days.”
It is indeed very creamy. I don’t know whether they have actually added any ribbons or not, but it certainly feels such. Its like you are applying soft cream butter on skin, with an amazing fragrance, which of course, is not overpowering (sensitive noses? Thumbs up!). Now, as far as the improving skin in 5 days claim is concerned, its utter rubbish of course. Your skin will improve, but with regular care (washing, weekly scrubbing, body lotion, hair removal), and with all these things also, it takes time. A simple body wash can never improve your skin overnight, or even in FIVE days.
Directions: For use in shower or bath (also with my twist :P)
Squeeze a small amount of product onto wet puff. Lather and Rinse. Use also as a shaving lotion and enjoy a soft, smooth shave.
Now these are the more practical claims that I agree with. You need a small amount on your loofah to produce sufficient amount of lather. That’s why I said that one bottle is going to last you a long time. You can even use it with hands, its so soft that you will love the feeling. It does not leave any slippery kind of a feeling. Skin feels soft after use, but not buttery soft. You still need your body lotion, especially in the harsh north winters.
Yes, you can use this as a shaving lotion. Normally, I epilate my skin with Braun Epilator (*looove*), but, for my underarms, I mostly get it waxed, or, in an emergency, I shave. I tried this to shave my underarms, and results were pretty good. The skin was still soft, and no burning sensation was there. Thumbs up!
Pros of Olay Moisture Ribbons Body Wash:
The quantity is good for the price.
Travel friendly. The flip is tight but not so that you can’t open it easily.
A small amount is required for whole bath. One bottle will last long.
Skin feels soft after each use and not stretchy.
Does not rip skin of its natural oils.
Can be used as a shaving lotion.
Cons of Olay Moisture Ribbons Body Wash:
The five day skin improving claim is totally untrue.
It does not replace your body lotion, you still need it.
My Rating And Recommendation:
Olay has the best body washes in market. Yes, and I have my reasons for that. Their body washes are never harsh on skin and in general, better than the ones by other brands.
Olay Moisture Ribbons Body wash fares on my ratometer 4/5 (-1 for the stupid claim of skin improvement)
Yes, I will recommend it. It is one of the best body washes in market. Go grab it!!
Hope you all enjoyed my review. Till the next one, byeee and love ya all :*
