As a swimmer who is in a pool two to five hours daily my skin can get pretty dry. Olay Body age defying body wash with VitaNiacin has made my life better. Winter and pools can result in very dry, very itchy skin conditions. Showering with Olay Body age defying body wash can remedy that problem. The thick and creamy body wash eases tight skin and makes me say, "ahhhh". Even after rinsing my skin still feels soft and supple. No more flakey dry skin on the inside of my jeans and shirts. No more miserable scratching in the middle of the night.

After rinsing there is no residue feeling left on the skin, just clean softness. The barely there scent seems to perk me up if tired after my workout and doesn't clash with any other scent I may want to apply before going out.

The rich cream is also great for shaving legs and underarms eliminating the need to carry shaving cream to the gym as well. After years of feeling my skin get tight and itchy I can now shower after a swim and say....."ahhhhh".

Effectiveness
This product has done more to keep my skin soft and in condition than any other product tried.

Scent
I love the fresh clean scent that it leaves on my skin.

What's VitaNiacin? It doesn't seem to do much for me!

I received a sample bottle of **Oil of Olay Age Defying Body Wash with VitaNiacin** from Proctor & Gamble.  I was surprised at how large the sample was...about the size of a travel bottle of shampoo!  Very generous of P&G.  This body wash is supposed to cleanse, moisturize, and defy the signs of aging by penetrating the skin with 24-our conditioners.  The bottle directs you to squeeze a small amount onto a pouf, lather and rinse.

When I first opened the bottle, I liked how thick the wash is...about as thick as hair conditioner, not liquidy like a lot of other body washes.  It evidently can double as a shaving cream!  However, I was not impressed by the smell.  It is quite strong and smells a little like perfumey soap.  Ew.  I used a little more than a dime-sized dollop of the body wash with a pouf, and it lathered up with tons of very soft foam.  I felt like I got fairly clean and it rinsed off easily.  While it claims to give you 24 hours of moisture, by 8:44 am, my skin was feeling tight...only 2 and a half hours after I had showered!  My favorite body wash, [Caress Evenly Gorgeous Exfoliating Body Wash][1] , doesn't leave me feeling tight or itchy at all!

I would not purchase **Oil of Olay Age Defying Body Wash with VitaNiacin**.  It's decent, but I prefer other body washes that leave my skin feeling more moisturized and smell better.  As for whether or not it defies age, I'll just wait to see how things go, because I don't feel this product is worth it to try to fight signs of aging!

I love Olay, but this one is merely decent.

By 

from Sevierville, TN

Comments about Olay Age Defying Body Wash:

Gave it a 7 because although it does its job, I just don't love it like some other body washes. It lathers up okay, and it doesn't feel like it leaves a film on my skin once I'm done, but I would have to say that it's the scent that makes me not like it as much as I would have normally. It's not an overpowering scent, just an odd smell that kind of reminds me of glue mixed in with something I can't quite name. As far as the age defying goes, I don't notice a difference really where skin age is concerned.

By 

from Glen Allen, VA

Comments about Olay Age Defying Body Wash:

Ok, I definitely don't have alot of money, we have 5 kids and I only work part time, and I must say that this wash is definitely expensive. But it's totally worth it! It leaves my skin feeling so amazing when I get out of the shower! I LOVE IT! I feel soft, smooth, sikly! Even my husband has commented on how soft my skin in is. Not only that but it lasts so long!! I will never switch, I have found the perfect one! I don't have alot of time to spend on myself, so being able to wash myself with something so great, is worh the price!!

I love Oil of Olay Body Wash!

By 

from Chesapeake, VA

Comments about Olay Age Defying Body Wash:

I love this stuff so much. It really is a great overall product for any age group. I can see people from teens to 80's really enjoying his body wash. The smell and feel are just that great! The oil of Olay body wash smells great! It's a very relaxing scent that always makes me feel good. I'm not so sure if it's helping me defy age, but it makes my skin pretty soft and leaves me feeling clean and smelling great! It's bottle is attractive and it's price is actually pretty affordable. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a new body wash. It foams up really nice and a little actually goes a long way. I've been using the same bottle for about 3 months now and still have about a quarter of a bottle left. I know for certain that the next time I need to buy any body wash I will stick to this one. I can't really think of any down falls to this body wash. I have gotten a bit in my eyes and it does sting, but that can easily be avoided.

way too perfumed

By 

from Saint Louis, MO

Comments about Olay Age Defying Body Wash:

I was intrigued to try an "anti-aging" body wash as it had never occurred to me that I needed to worry about aging skin other than on my face, but truth to be told I do spend too much time in the sun and so could probably use such a product, especially on my frequently sunburned shoulders.

I was disappointed with this body wash, however.  The was is extremely heavily perfumed, to the point that I felt like I couldn't used my scented lotions after showering with it since the scents might conflict.  Furthmore I didn't feel like the scent was even particularly pleasant, more like an old lady perfume smell.

On the plus side, the texture was pleasantly thick and creamy, and I felt like it moisturized well.

However the scent issue was so bad that I didn't try it out long enough to find out how well the supposed anti-aging benefits worked.  I would try it again if they'd make an unscented version.

What's VitaNiacin? It doesn't seem to do much for me!

Age defying body wash by Olay is my only choice

By 

from Newburgh, IN

Comments about Olay Age Defying Body Wash:

I've been in a bind and have had to use other body washes but I keep coming back to Olay.  Buying two 23.6 ounce bottles at a time has solved the "running out-can't find it" problem.  I can tell when I am not using this product.  My skin feels dry and stiff.   This is  true of expensive name brands as well as store brands

.  A small amount of Olay Body Wash on a scrungy becomes volumes of soft suds.  I find it hard to use "little" enough.  There is no drying soap residue feel because Olay has a clean rinse.  My skin feels like I have bathed in lotion.  Even my rough feet patches soften.  Why would I use anything else?

This good skin feel is not a temporary after shower benefit.  The soft skin remains until my next shower.  I add lotion in the winter to my legs and hands but dryness is not a big problem.  Before Olay Body Wash withVitaNiacin my skin was flaky and very dry.  I couldn't keep enough lotion on my legs especially.  This age-defying product works.

Procter & Gamble Olay Body Wash Age Defying

By 

from Schenectady, NY

Comments about Olay Age Defying Body Wash:

Yet another great product from Procter & Gamble..Olay!!

Can you picture yourself in a hot shower with scent of freshness.......especially after a hard days work...well grab a bottle of Procter & Gambles Olay Body Wash...

This body wash really soaps up your body and it does not take much to do that.......so your not wasting body wash by reappling it over and over to get the suds you desire.......and with the suds your getting that smooth soft finish......and not only is this smoothing your skin but it is refitlizing it and gives you a special treat..why cause this product contains VitaNiacin a special ingrediant that really tackles dry skin that can turn your skin in much older looking skin that we women just do not want or need.....

Another great quality about this Olay body wash..it does not leave a film of soap on your skin....so your not itching all over..Olay has so many other products that you can use along with this body wash to give great looking skin...........

Olay Body age defying with VitaNiacin body wash has great lather

By 

from Hot Springs, VA

Comments about Olay Age Defying Body Wash:

The olay body age defying with vitaniacin body wash lathers very well and feels incredible, also smells great!  I like this bodywash it works very well and smells terrific, with a mosturizing feel.  This product cleans well smells good and takes very little to use so it lasts a long time, also another plus to this product is that it contains vitamin B3, vitamin E, vitamin B5, and vitamin A so it is nourishing the skin.  The product works best when used with a wet puff instead of wash clothe and lathers longer also it doesn't leave a scum behind so clean up is easier.

Olay Age Defying Body Wash leaves my skin feeling moisturized!

By 

from Apo, AE

Comments about Olay Age Defying Body Wash:

I usually use Dove soap in the shower, and I found that my skin, especially on my legs, was getting really dry and uncomfortable after I showered. I decided to try Olay Age Defying Body Wash not because I am necessarily interested in the "age defying" properties, but it was on sale and it smelled good! :) I'm happy to report that I not longer have to hurry to slather on lotion after my shower. The body wash smells wonderful: clean, not overpowering, and it lasts for a while after you lather up. My husband doesn't particularly like it when I use products that smell girly, but he actually comments that he likes the way I smell after I use the Olay body wash. The consistency of the product is luxurious; you don't need to use a whole lot to do what you need to do. I don't use any shaving cream on my legs, too messy and time consuming for me. I just lather up and shave, and I get silky smooth legs right out of the shower- no loition needed!
