I was about a few months ago years old before I started realizing that I was aging. Before you jump at me, let me start by saying that I didn’t see it in a bad way. I just started noticing differences in my body, ones that weren’t really around in my early 20s. If you’ve been kicking around with me on Instagram for a while, you know that I’ve spent the last few years struggling with PCOS and hormonal issues. After years of trying to get rid of acne naturally and with every product you could imagine, I finally went the route of taking an oral medication.
The results have been AMAZING but one of the things I noticed was how dry my lips and skin got – and not just the skin on my face, my whole body. Once I had to start paying more attention to hydrating my skin, it really hit me: I seriously neglect anything below the neck when it comes to skincare. If you’re like me, your bathroom shelves and drawers are overflowing with every cleanser, exfoliator, serum, creams, and hyaluronic-somethings to keep the skin on your face glowing and healthy – but why do so many of us neglect the rest of our body? After all, skin is the largest organ in our body.
Cue the new body wash collection from Olay Canada. When I first heard from the team a few months back, it was at the time I was stressing out about how dull and dry my skin was looking so I was very keen to put this new collection to the test. What I love about this collection is that each of the three formulas is infused with premium skincare ingredients that we tend only to think about for our facial skincare. The collection comes in Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid, and Vitamin C, all formulated to leave your skin feeling soft and silky. On top of our favourite skincare ingredients, each formula includes Olay’s Vitamin B3 complex which is a proprietary technology that deeply hydrates to nourish and replenish skin’s moisture barrier. I specifically wanted to test out the Vitamin C brightening body wash. The launch of the new formula boasts a fun supercharge of Vitamin C and Vitamin B3 Complex to give you a radiant glow and provide long-lasting hydration. It also suggests a 3x skin improvement over 14 days when it comes to moisture retention. Seemed like the perfect test.
So, what’s the verdict? I love how it feels in the shower! It lathers so nicely and doesn’t leave an oily coat after I wash it off. I can definitely say that my skin is not only super hydrated, but it’s actually looking quite radiant! I had no idea that something as simple as picking up a body washed with Vitamin C would be such an easy fix but I’m happy that I took on this campaign with Olay Canada to test it out!
As I mentioned, there are 2 other formulas in this collection, so if you’re looking for something other than the Vitamin C formula, Olay has you covered. There is a Collagen formula if you’re looking to improve your skin’s elasticity for firmer-looking skin and Hyaluronic Acid, which locks in moisture to keep your skin hydrated throughout the day without feeling heavy.
A well-rounded skincare routine includes your whole body! Treat yourself, hunnies – and don’t forget to wear SPF and drink water. If you’re interested in learning more, head over to Olay.ca!
