A Review of Olay’s New Foaming Whip Body Wash

Today’s review will be different.  This is where the ‘& More’ part of Jessica’s Reading Room comes in: from time to time I will review something other than a book! 

I received a sample of Olay’s new product Foaming Whip Body Wash.  The scent sample I received was shea butter and the sample size was 2 oz.. I consider myself a huge ‘bath snob’ and was looking forward to trying it out. 

Olay sells four scents of their Foaming Whip Body Wash in 10.3 oz cans
-Shea Butter
-Purifying Birch Water & Lavendar
-White Stawberry & Mint
-Soothing Orchid & Black Currant

This is the Product Description from Olay’s website https://www.olay.com

Turn shower time into a rich, luxurious experience with Olay Foaming Whip Body Wash and awaken your senses with the scent of shea butter. This unique, whipped foam gently cleanses your body with a thick, creamy lather that envelopes your skin then effortlessly rinses away to leave it feeling refreshed and weightlessly soft. Just a little of this luxurious foam goes a long way, making enough rich lather for 30+ showers per bottle.

The sample can resembles a shave cream can, and even the way the product dispenses is like shaving cream. To me the body wash was also similar texture of shaving cream.  I even used it as shaving cream.  The big plus for me was that the Shea Butter smells really good! I love the Shea Butter scent!   I would be interested in trying out the White Strawberry & Mint Scent.

It takes a lot of product to use as a body wash.  It felt like I was putting shaving cream all over my body.  It did leave my skin feeling soft and smelling great afterwards.

Olay sells it on their site for $4.99 and I saw it in my local Target for $5.49.  I personally can’t see spending that much on glorified shaving cream.  The foaming whip body wash wasn’t for me.  Even with the $1.00 off coupon that came with the sample, the cost is too much for me.

**Thank you to Olay for sending me a sample of foaming whip body wash to try out!  I wish it had been a product for me.**
