This is an excellent, affordable body lotion for dry to very dry skin from the neck down. Olay’s body lotion formulas are typically great and this one doesn’t part from tradition. It supplies skin with a very good range of cell-communicating ingredients (key among them niacinamide), emollients, antioxidants, and amino acid-based water-binding agents, all designed to repair skin’s surface and keep it looking smooth and healthy. Note that this contains ingredients that leave a subtle sparkling sheen on skin. If you don’t want your body lotion to have shine, this isn’t the product for you.

Claims

Provides dry skin with an immediate burst of moisture that continues for 24 hours. Then, drawn deep into skin’s surface, it repairs and nourishes the moisture barrier to break the cycle of dry skin. With just one use, you'll get saturating moisture that lasts all day. In one week, your skin will feel noticeably soft. And by the time you finish the bottle, skin is able to preserve its moisture for extended periods of time.

Brand Overview

Olay At-A-Glance

Starting decades ago with the now-classic Oil of Olay, this brand now offers an extensive range of skin-care products sold at drugstores and mass-market stores. Today's Olay lineup for those concerned about staving off the effects of aging skin is impressive, comprising their Regenerist, Pro X, and Total Effects lines. All of these (and several other Olay products) contain the B vitamin niacinamide. As you might expect, the claims made for it are inflated, but niacinamide is a very helpful ingredient for all skin types, capable of exerting multiple benefits.

In fact, perhaps the biggest complaint about Olay is that there are a number of repetitive formulas within and between the sub-brands make this line confusing and tricky to shop! Still, there is a lot to like about this drugstore stalwart, with its main drawback being a few formulas containing fragrance or other ingredients that have the potential to cause irritation.
