Olay Quench Body Wash Review

Once, while browsing through the official website of Olay, I came across the Olay Quench Body Wash and I was quite impressed to see that ‘In the September 2011 issue, Ebony featured its first-ever Beauty and Grooming Awards. Its panel of top pros and beauty bloggers voted Olay Quench “Best Body Wash” in the Best Essentials category, because its deep hydrating formula lets you “kiss that tight, dry post-shower feeling goodbye.”!!!!!’ It was thus that I decided to give this body wash a try and today, I am going to review it here.

“Each bottle contains more than a jar of Olay moisturizers.”  Cleanse skin with a body wash that helps stop the cycle of dry skin and reveals radiant, more beautiful skin.

My Experience with Olay Quench Body Wash:

Since I have already used the Olay Ultra Moisture Body Wash, I more or less knew that I should be expecting another of my fabulous shower-time experiences and I was quite right. To speak about my experiences with Olay Quench Body Wash in a few words, here it is! A heavenly smell, a rich cream-like texture, loads of lather (with only a few drops on wet lather) and moisturized, soft skin after bath is all that I can say in a nutshell.

What I Like about Olay Quench Body Wash:

  • It cleanses really well and gives a clean feeling.
  • It has a thick and creamy texture which produces a rich lather.
  • It keeps the skin perfectly moisturized and does away with the after-shower dryness, which is a common problem for many of us. Using it is a sheer delight during summer months and a necessity (but a blissful one) for your skin during the harsh winter months.
  • The fragrance is pleasant and mild.
  • The quantity needed is not much and hence, it goes on and on for days!
  • It is affordable at Rs. 210/- for 354 ml.
  • It comes in a white bottle with a violet flip-open cap. The packaging is good and it is convenient to use.
  • It can also be used as a shaving aid; hence a two-in-one product.

What I Do Not Like about Olay Quench Body Wash:

There isn’t much really about which I can elaborate in this section, but if at all I have to say, here they are.

  • The packaging, though decent, is quite generic.
  • Because of its jumbo size, it may not turn out to be travel friendly, as it would end up taking a lot of space.
