Ladies, I wanted to give a quick plug for a new product I have found and am thoroughly enjoying. It is Olay In-shower Body Lotion. Don’t know about you, but I suffer from dry skin especially in the winter. Also, I am definitely wanting to do whatever I can to avoid any stretch marks (I know that you can’t really prevent, but that’s a whole other tangent). Here’s the 411:
Background: So, I was at Wally-World (aka Wal-Mart; we call it Wally-World because it has more of a carnival sound to it and that is what my shopping experiences there are like. Again, another tangent) looking for some stuff for Hubby, when I ran across the above said product. After much hesitation, I justified my splurge of $3-5 with the great hopes this would actually moisturize my skin.
Experimentation: After reading the directions (yes, I am dorky enough to do so, again, I really wanted it to work), I followed my normal bathing routine and decide to end with a first trial run of my new “toy.” I slathered the lotion on, rinsed, and ended my shower with a pat dry. My skin felt hydrated and smelled great (bonus points given there). However, I was not instantly won over. What would my skin feel like in a couple hours or the next morning? Only time would tell, and I was definitely going to make a point of making my observations.
Conclusion: The In-shower body lotion held up to the test of time. I remain moisturized and smooth. I must add there is a minor downside to this product: Hands, elbows, and feet may require lotion applied after your shower experience. These are my dry spots and unless I was bathing in bacon grease, I don’t think any product cover the dryness of those areas in one fell swoop. So, overall I give this product an ‘A’. For whatever reason, it seems to take on less step out of my day and gives me an excuse to stay in the shower a couple of extra minutes. Sweet Retreat.
