Olay 7 Total Effects Body Wash Review/FREE SAMPLE and $10 Wal-mart Card Giveaway CLOSED!

I recently was chosen to try Olay's most advanced body wash, Olay Total Effects.  Olay Total Effects goes beyond cleansing to deeply moisturize and fight 7 signs of aging all over your body.  Olay boasts quick results of "soft, smooth skin in 1 shower with improved elasticity in 1 week, as well as young-looking, radiant skin in 1 month.

Olay also states that this product will deliver the following seven benefits:
  1. Improves elasticity
  2. Relieves dryness
  3. Deeply moisturizes
  4. Brightens dull skin
  5. Evens skin tone
  6. Smoothes rough skin
  7. Minimizes the appearance of dry lines
Wow--sounds too good to be true, doesn't it?  In my mind, body wash is body wash.  Some smell better than others, some feel creamier than others, some might be a bit more moisturizing than others, but they all are pretty much the same.  My expectations were that this would be no better or no worse than any others I have tried.

I hopped into the shower and opened the product.  Immediately, I liked the fragrance.  It is light scent that sort of reminds me of a spring or summer evening when the scent of a blooming tree lingers in the air.  It is very pleasant.  I squirted a small bit on my scrubby.  It  was very full and creamy, more like a mousse.  I began to wash my body and was surprised at how soft it felt and how much it lathered up.  Trust me, you just need a bit of this stuff!  It feels so luxurious!  After rinsing, my skin felt balanced.  It didn't feel slimy or dry.  It just felt right.  I really like it and plan to buy it in the future.  It runs about $7-$8 a bottle and Olay often has coupons in the Sunday paper for $1-$2 off.

Want to try it for yourself?  Then click HERE to get a free sample. 

And of course, there is a great rebate going on now.  Purchase any three olay products and get $15 back.  With the rebate, you would only be paying about $2.50 a bottle. But hurry, all purchases must be made by March 12, 2010 and rebate submissions must be postmarked by March 26, 2010.  Click HERE for the rebate.

And now for the best part...Olay wants to give one of my readers the opportunity to try a full-size bottle and has given me a $10 Wal-mart card to giveaway.

I treat myself by not allowing my lazy side to talk me out of exercising :->.

Once I begin exercising I feel so much stronger and better about myself, and that feeling can last all day.

I treat myself by buying instant mocha powder at Sam's Club then making it whenever I feel like it. It's cheaper than coffee houses and is a guilty pleasure. Unfortunately, I gave it up for lent so I'm stuck with coffee for now! LOL
