Review: Olay Quench Body Lotion

Does Olay quench lighten the skin


I’ve used Olay Quench Body Lotion for years. My mum gave this to me when I was a teenager and for me then, the best part of it was wearing body lotion with glitter in it. What could be more perfect? I haven’t used the glitter version in years though.

This body lotion has a nice blend of vitamins – much more than the average body lotion. It contains Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), Tocopherol (Vitamin E) and Panthenol (Vitamin B5). It also contains Petrolatum to seal in moisture so it is not advisable to use on the face. I recently used the Advanced Healing version which is the most hydrating and doesn’t contain fragrance making it suitable for sensitive skin types. You get 600ml of a wonderful fast absorbing formula that spreads easily. The packaging is great to preserve the ingredients and comes with a pump and I love that you can open it when it’s almost finished to get the last of the product out.

I never realised how truly hydrating this body lotion is because I have used it for a long time. I recently had a bad period of very dry and dull skin due to over exfoliating. It was so bad and uncomfortable. I was looking into getting a Q10 body lotion to fix it. Somehow I was travelling for work and realised at the last minute that I was almost out of body lotion so my mum was kind enough to give me this one. In just one week my skin transformed to soft and hydrated. My complexion was ruined by the previous “ashyness”, I couldn’t believe the difference. This definitely repairs the skin’s moisture barrier. If you have dry and sensitive skin, you won’t regret using this lotion. It is also a wonderful option to use this during Harmattan period at the end of the year.

If you are wondering, Olay can be used for fair or dark skin. It does not lighten the skin and it is completely safe to use during pregnancy. There are a variety of options in the range so you may have a hard time deciding what Olay product is right for you. The formulas are quite similar but usually have one unique ingredient. Ultra-Moisture for example contains Shea Butter while Shimmer contains Cocoa Butter and light-reflecting minerals that will make your skin literally shimmer.

Pros
  • *      Extremely hydrating
  • *      Contains a good mix of vitamins
  • *      Good for all skin types including Sensitive Skin
  • *      Affordable

Cons
  • *      Contains Parabens


Olay Quench Body Lotion has become more expensive following the recession. It can be found in most supermarkets in Nigeria but some supermarkets are more reasonably priced than others. If you’re in doubt for the price, I believe anything more than N4,000 is ridiculous. If you have tried this, let me know what you think or if not, what is your go-to body lotion for dry skin/weather?

  1. I love this lotion as well and their soaps. I have a very select few products that I can use on my skin that doesn't cause me to itch and I'm glad Olay falls into the "can use" category as their products are awesome.

  2. Good review. I am not a fan of their products, but my mom is and one my friends uses them. So every so often I indulge in their lotions and creams when I am over at their houses.

  4. I've never tried this body lotion either as I am one of those people who prefers Vaseline especially during the dry season. You know lotion makes one sweat and in some cases makes one get darker. However,I have used their facial scrub and so far so good, I think I'm in love.
