Product Review: Fight the Signs of Aging with Olay & a Giveaway!!

Thanks to my friends over at MyBlogSpark, I was provided with a full-size sample of the new Olay Total Effects Body Wash to try out and then share my findings and opinions (good or bad) with my fellow bloggers and readers. Well......I have been using this product for the last 30 days and I have to say that I am amazed!

Before I go into too much detail about the product itself, let me just say that I am not one to be "choosy" when using body wash products. I have always been of the mindset that a body wash, is a body wash, is a body wash. One may smell better than another, one may be a little thicker or "suds up" better than another, but other than that, all body washes were equal in my mind and simply did the job of getting you clean. Well, let me be the first to point out that I am so WRONG (being a woman, I don't admit that too often, so you know I am telling the truth!) :o)

When I received my package from MyBlogSpark, I received a full size bottle of the Deep Penetrating Moisture Body Wash, along with a bath puff, to try out and see what I thought. The materials that were provided claimed to fight 7 signs of aging while you shower, which included Improving Elasticity, Relieving Dryness, Deeply Conditioning Skin, Brightening Dull Skin, Evening Skin Tone, Smoothing Rough Skin and Minimizing the Appearance of Dry Lines.
I can honestly say just after my very first shower using this body wash, there was an immediate softness to my skin. After about a week or so, I could tell a drastic difference in the smoothness of my skin, particularly in my upper arms where I previously had rough and "bumpy" spots. By the end of the month, I also no longer had dry skin, particularly in my calf area where I tend to have dry skin during this time of year.
The body wash is extremely thick and "a little dab will do ya" so the body wash lasts a long time since you do not have to use very much each time you shower. It does not have a strong smell like some body washes do that sometimes over power you but simply leaves you smelling clean and fresh.
I would highly recommend this body wash to anyone looking to improve the look and feel of their skin, particularly those that are skeptical like me. I promise you will be amazed!
In addition to the products MyBlogSpark provided to me to tryout, they also provided me with a $10.00 Walmart Gift Card to share with one lucky reader so they may also try out Olay Total Effects Body Wash for themselves.
