Olay Body Wash review--and a $50 Visa gift card give away!

 
If you heard a body wash had a jar of moisturizer in every bottle, would you be intrigued? I sure am.  
 
And as my 33rd birthday approaches this month, anything that helps this Mamma’s skin feel more moisturized is my new BFF! I want to feel refreshed, moisturized and energized when I shower--but not filmy or oily. I think we can all agree: body wash products that tout extra moisturizing but make you feel like you’ve bathed in baby oil are not happening.

My latest Olay product review is for Olay Ultra Moisture Body Wash. I have used Olay body wash products for years. I am a very loyal brand customer.  When I love something, I love something and I will use it forever.
Olay, is one of my biggest loyalties. I know when I use their body washes I won’t feel weighed down with film from yucky soap products. The new products are just as appealing and effective to me as the ones I started using over ten years ago. I love that my skin is being pampered with Olay products.
 
Most of all what I truly enjoy about Olay Ultra Moisture Body Wash is I don’t have to spend extra time outside of the shower using additional moisturizing products.
You guys know my schedule: photography sessions, grad school, chasing a toddler, working on DIY projects, training for 25Ks, crafting, travelling, and everything else we do as Moms just to keep our lives going. To be quite honest, I don’t have time to add extra moisturizing products after I shower. I need a product that delivers enough moisture so I can skip that extra step.
Olay to the rescue!

 
Love, love, love my Olay Ultra Moisture Body Wash.

So how do you simplify your routine to make time for yourself?

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!

I simplify my routine by keeping my skin moisturized, and when in a hurry, I just apply a little blush.

I keep Olay cleaning clothes beside the bed to clean my face when I forget (or am too tired) some nights. I also have sample sizes of my Lancome moisturizer and serums to apply as well.

I have no beauty routine, which makes everything simplified! I do mostly shower at night so I can sleep a bit later in the morning (6:30 as opposed to 6?).

Sometimes I do a tooth whiting treatment in the shower, but there's no singing then and forget the phone if it rings. My teeth are brighter and so is my mood after taking care of myself and putting on a "good front".
