AMW Reviews: Olay Body

I have been a soap user for almost all of my life!  Most bar soaps I've used strips off the natural oil from my skin thus my skin condition is dry and flaky.  Finding the right soap bar is difficult, though I prefer using them especially when I'm' on a rush!

Recently, I got Olay Bars from Olay Philippines and Yehey!  I was a bit hesitant as I've seen and used so many bar soaps in the past that has "moisturizing" written all over but none of them actually work!  But a test is a test, they smell too good to resist anyways!  I can always depend on my trustee Neutrogena Body Oil after shower.

Olay Body says ---
3 Variants:
OLAY Age Defying Bar. Each bar is formulated with creamy, OLAY lather.

OLAY Fresh Reviving. It goes beyond cleansing, delivering OLAY deep moisturizers to the skin while helping to wash away dry surface cells. So after you dry off, all that's left is skin that feels clean and revived.   

OLAY Ultra Moisture is specially formulated with creamy, OLAY lather and Shea Butter. It goes beyond cleansing, delivering OLAY deep moisturizers to the skin while helping to wash away dry surface cells. So after you dry off, all that's left is skin that feels clean and petal soft.

AMW says (for Ultra Moisture and Age Defying)---

  • scent is really good and addictive, not too strong
  • skin feels smooth and moisturized
  • can actually survive without body lotion
  • does not melt quickly, one 120g bar soap lasts for almost a month (daily use)
  • body feels clean without dryness
  • texture is really smooth
  • inexpensive
  • none at the moment

I've finished up the Age Defying and Ultra Moisture variant and both did not fail me. I will actually start using the Fresh Reviving variant tomorrow.  What I like about the Olay soaps is that they don't melt fast as compared to other moisturizing soaps and they are very smooth on skin.  Texture feels like butter and it does makes my skin soft to touch even without body oil or lotion.

Of course at this early stage, the Age Defying can't be seen instantly, as the effect of most products come in long term.  But I have a positive feeling with this :D

  • if your skin is super dry or gets exposed to air conditioner the whole day, always follow up with your favorite body lotion 
  • do not forget to use sunscreen to protect your skin
  • use a soap dish and make sure to keep it dry AT ALL TIMES to prevent soap bars from melting fast
  • alternate all 3 variants so you won't feel bored with the scent of your body soap
  • if you plan to use this for your face:  test it on one cheek only to see if you are allergic to this, sensitive skin can be allergic to the fragrance of the soap
  • you can store the soap bars in your dresser for your clothes to smell clean and  good!
Will I repurchase?

Where to purchase and how much?
At leading department stores and groceries for Php45.00 (approx $1.00) for 120g bar.

After finishing the 3 variants from Olay, I actually have other bar soaps to try and finish up!
But this product did not fail!
Have you tried this bar soap?  Like it?  Hate it?

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!


  1. i was about to begin the dove 7day challenge w/o mirror/s and now you got me thinking.


    gud morning!

  2. Ahh! I just remembered I have some Olay soap bars somewhere! Can't wait to try them now! ^^

  3. hahaha as you report this I am just about to purchase my Olay Shea Butter Bar coz I need to replace my bar of soap already. First time I am trying to use soap with moisture as I am always the bestfriend of DOVE and J&J... they say it's good for preggy women to prevent stretchmarks. I shall report if it works for me! :) Enjoy!

  4. OLAY Ultra Moisture with Shea Butter is my favorite and it really makes my skin so soft.

    Two thumbs up for the tip
    "store the soap bars in your dresser for your clothes to smell clean and good!" I usually collect the soap cartoons and put it on my dresser, sometimes I put them beside my bed :)

  5. i've been using the age defying bar for 2 months already, i usually forget to put on lotion so this soap is perfect for me, di na kailangan. love it!
