Review: Olay Quench Active Hydration Body Lotion

15 Apr

olay quench active hydrationPrice: $6.29 (at HEB which is a grocery store here in Texas), 11.8 fl oz(350 ml)

What it claims:

with green tea & vitamin complex

for deeply moisturized, yet sheer fresh skin

  • A moisturization breakthrough from Olay that gives you sheer, fresh, deeply hydrated skin.

Quench, with Green Tea and Vitamins Complex, is advanced body care.  This quickly absorbing, non-greasy formula can actually prevent dryness while leaving skin with a sheer, fresh feel.  First, Quench provides an immediate burst of moisture that continues for 24 hours.  Then, drawn deep into the skin’s surface, it repairs and nourishes the moisture barrier, strengthening skin’s resilience against everyday drying conditions.  The result?  Fast-absorbing moisturization that breaks the cycle of dry skin, for quenched beautiful skin everyday.

My Review: Spring is here, so it is time for me to switch to a lighter, sheerer hydrating lotion, and this stuff is GREAT!!!! I do wish it was fragrance-free though because the smell is STRONG but its a candy-tea type smell that goes away after about an hour. This stuff is a tad bit sticky when I sweat but that is all and it hydrates my skin ALL DAY without it feeling THICK like Vaseline, plus I think it may have evened out my skin tone already because the scars and dark areas on my body seem a bit lighter. It also has slight shimmer due to the mica in it at the bottom of the list, but it is not noticeable on the skin. This also hasn’t broken me out on my arms and chest or caused an allergic reaction (fragrance is listed at the bottom, which is great)

Ingredients:

Water, Glycerin, Niacinamide (Niacin), Petrolatum, Isopropyl Isostearate, Caprylic/Capric Triglycerides, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract (Green Tea), Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Glycine, Alanine, Proline, Serine, Threonine, Arginine, Lysine, Glutamic Acid (Amino Acids), Chamomilla Recutita Flower Extract (Matricaria), Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Dimethicone, Stearyl Alcohol, Cetyl Alcohol, Panthenol (Vitamin B-5), Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Polyethylene, Sodium Acrylates Copolymer, Behenyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Glucoside, Dimethiconol, Disodium EDTA, Stearic Acid, PEG 100 Stearate, Sodium PCA, Betaine, Sorbitol, Ethylparaben, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, C12 13 Pareth 3, Laureth 7, Sodium Hydroxide, Fragrance, Tin Oxide, Mica, Titanium Dioxide
