Initial review: Olay skin whitening bar with rose and milk.

My Dear Phantom Readers, Welcome to another product review!

As I had mentioned I was gonna purchase this soap and try it out. This is only an initial review. Ill have an update on results in a month or so’s time.

In this post, we will look into Olays new one wash wonder Beauty Bar.

I got mine in Watsons branch Maysilo beside chowking.

Before going for any product, I ensure that Its mostly a success from reviews online and testimonials that come from legit sources. I have eczema, So I cant just use anything willy nilly. My skin is uber sensitive so that would be a factor you guys may wanna know about.


Olay products have received praise from top beauty and skin care experts across the country. Today, Olay continues to hold to the philosophy it was founded on: to maintain a deep understanding of women’s changing needs and to combine products that fit their needs with the latest advances in skin care technology. The end result—superior product performance women have come to expect from Olay.


Olay is a skin care brand with 60 years of experience in helping women look and feel beautiful, so they can challenge what’s possible for their skin.


Olay is one of the most recognizable brands in the world. Yet through all the changes and innovations, the philosophy upheld by Olay’s founder, Graham Wulff, remains just as relevant as ever: Help women look and feel beautiful. That’s a potent formula for success.

 Company Overview

We’re passionate about making a difference in your skin—we have been from the very beginning. Read our story below, explore offers on breakthrough products, and get an inside look at Olay.

Olay is a product truly born from love, as it was created by a man as a gift for his wife. In the 1950s, chemist Graham Wulff saw his wife Dinah’s frustration with the thick, waxy beauty creams that came in shoe-polish tins. They left her skin looking greasy, and they certainly didn’t fit with her feminine sensibility. Graham wanted to create a new beauty product for her— one that could not only moisturize her skin, but also leave her feeling beautiful and feminine.

Together, Graham and Dinah fine-tuned everything from absorption and texture to the delicate pink shade and instantly recognizable fragrance. At last, the legendary Oil of Olay Beauty Fluid was born.

With his formula complete and the first batch mixed by hand, Graham enlisted the help of an advertising agency that he found in the Yellow Pages. Account executive Jack Lowe quickly became Graham’s lifelong friend and business partner, and the two soon created a company to produce and market Oil of Olay.

Within five years, Olay was enjoying phenomenal success in South Africa, and in 1959 expanded into England, the United States, the Netherlands, Canada and Germany. Needless to say, the Olay business flourished. Eventually, Olay was sold to Richardson Merrill, which later became Richardson-Vicks. In 1985, Procter & Gamble bought Richardson-Vicks and gained the Olay brand.

In 2000, Procter & Gamble decided to shorten the brand name to Olay. The formula had evolved over the years, and the original name no longer fit with what women have come to expect from Olay—a light, greaseless formula that absorbs quickly into the skin.

Price: Php100 (Watsons sale price of buy two take one free)

Regular bar price in watsons is Php50 .

I think prices differ depending on where you buy them.


The soap bar like L’amour was also a very pretty pink color that comes in a prettily designed box. I got the rose with milk which had appealed to me for the reason of the pink XD. It comes in two other variants, one with papaya and another with vitamin C. It had a wonderful scent.

Below are just pics of my tighs from the first wash. It’ll take you a while to see the fifference but I do see some lightening





I have used it trice now, I did not experience any negative reactions. I was still cautious around skin portions with eczema thought. The soap is pretty mild and lathers and foams upreally well. A downside for me would be he size of the bar, which for the price I think is not proportionate, and the feel of my skin after washing.

For me, It gave off that soapy feel similar to how safeguard would feel but of milder intensity.

The scent though stays long after a wash

The promise of whitening after one wash was indeed true. However like L’amour, it wasn’t very significant. I had to study my skin well to tell the difference.



●Not too slippery when held

●Very pleasant scent that stays after the wash

● Whitens after every wash

●No bad skin reaction or allergies (Though I notice some slight micropeeling as you often get from some whitening soaps)


●Price is a bit too pricey for its size.

●Whitening isn’t very noticable at first.

●Gives of a soapy feel after wash sinilar to safeguard.

Rating: 4.5/5

Will I repurchase? So far I lean towards yes but I will give the final verdic when I update this review.
