PRODUCT REVIEW: UPDATE

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

Hello Dear ol’ Phantom Readers, Welcome to my updated product review!

I had been using Olays new one wash wonder Beauty Bar for about a month or so now.

Again I had purchased mine from Watsons branch Maysilo.

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

Regular bar price in watsons is Php50 .

Review:

Its been a month since I first started using this soap. One bar lasted me 29 days despite my initial dislike for the small-ish size. The soap still whitened after every wash though on some days it wasnt quite noticable.

The smell lingered on my skin after bathing and it was quite pleasant. It lathers us nicely and the thing I really like about the bar is that it didnt melt easily unlike its counterparts.

Below are just pics of my thighs from the before the first wash, the first wash and the results almost a month later.

After one wash.

P_20160805_143200_1After almost a month.

It had visibly whitened. Olay is, as you can see, effective. I’m continuing my usage from here on until I decide to try and review another soap bar.

Pros:

●Mild. It wasnt stingy to my eczema

●Not too slippery when held

●Very pleasant scent that stays after the wash

● Whitens after every wash

●No bad skin reaction or allergies even after a lenthy, continuous usage (Though again, you’ll notice some slight micropeeling as you often get from some whitening soaps)

●The small bar lasts a month with regular uses. Whoch for me is about One to two baths a day.

Cons:

●Price is a bit too pricey for its size.

●Whitening isn’t very noticable at first.

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

Rating: 4.6/5

I don’t have any more cons. 4.6 is my final verdict.

Will I repurchase? Definately.

OLAY
Products

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.

About

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.

Mission

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.

Review:

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

After.

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.

Pros:

●Mild

●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)

Cons:

●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.

Review:

So I have used this product for a week and a half now. I only bought the 20ml one to try out because I ran out of my ponds facial wash with herbal clay. I got my sis one too which I gave to her among other stuff last Christmas.

Anyways, upon checking it out initially I was already happy with the scent and the packaging which I thought was cute.

The 20ml was perfect to carry around and leave in my bag. The bottle was small and handy. When I used it the consistency was fine. Clear and water like but not quite.

It foamed up pretty well while I used only a small amount and it didn’t take much effort to wash off. It did make my skin feel smooth and soft without the sticky face tight soap feeling.

It was mild on my skin and it also didn’t cause any breakouts.

The price was reasonable as well. Though to save up on money I’d recommend to buy a lot of the 20ml ones instead of a big bottle because you initially save more.

The impression the facial wash gave me though is that it may not be able to help big skin problems like pimples and stuff. I do think its mild enough to use on any skin type however if your purpose is to get rid of pimples or the likes, you may want something stronger that focuses on targeting skin problems. For a normal wash and cleansing this facial wash is really good.

Pros:

●Cleans thorougly

●Gentle

●Non-comedogenic, No breakouts

●Non drying

●Rich in active ingredients that are good for skin

●Affordable

●Easily available in leading stores like Watson’s, SM, Robinsons, mercury and Cherry foodarama.

●Cute packaging which is quite Hygienic and handy

Cons:

●None of which I can see so far

Rating:

4.5/5

Would I repurchase? Yes. I’d use it though as a back up facial wash and keep it in my backpack or locker for those days of need like after PE.

(I would just like to add that I am not sponsored by these companies or future companies to review their product/s. I have purhased the things I’ve reviewed on and will review on with my own money.)
