Self-care. I don't know how many times I've talked about it ever since the pandemic began. What I know is, it's one of the most important things we can do for ourselves now more than ever. We are still fighting a battle against coronavirus, more people are still getting infected, and every day we are faced with worry not just for ourselves or our family but for the whole nation.
As I've mentioned in some of my posts, self-care could be in any form. It could be mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual. In a nutshell, it's all about being kind to your self.
Aside from the stress brought about by the current pandemic, I also face a lot of stress daily. I am blessed to be working from home, but it doesn't mean that everything is good. Behind the chill and happy side I share on social media are struggles, sleepless nights, and exhaustion from juggling chores, work, and parenting.
Am I complaining? It sounds like it. But hey, I am only human and I'm allowed to feel that way, right? I acknowledge how I feel, and I do my best to cope up with it.
Lately, I have been doing a lot of pampering to myself. I started making changes on my diet, I started working out again, I have a new skincare routine, and now I am into body care. I have several bottles of body wash that I got from Sample Room, which I am enjoying a lot! And, in this blog post, I will be sharing with you my thoughts about the New Olay BodyScience Body Wash.
Olay BodyScience Body Wash is Olay's latest product after years of research by Skin Care experts. It's their very first body wash with Niacinamide that promises Bright, Radiant skin in just 28 days.
What is Niacinamide? I am no skincare expert, but Niacinamide is one of two major forms of Vitamin B3+, which is a skincare ingredient proven to help treat hyper pigmentation. It helps fade age spots and brightens the skin. Niacinamide also helps diminish dullness and repair signs of skin damage.
I've learned about Niacinamide last year when I received a Niacinamide serum. It's intended for the face, but after learning about its benefits, I also applied it to some parts of my body that have an uneven skin tone.
So, learning about a body wash that contains Niacinamide is such an exciting discovery which I wouldn't want to miss. Good thing, Sample Room offers samples which are by the way, in full sizes, so I get to try them for free before actually buying them.

If I were to choose between bar soap and a body wash, I'd choose the latter. It gives me a luxurious feeling that I need every bath time, which I now consider as "me time."
I've only been using Olay BodyScience body wash for a week (I tried all 3 but I'm currently using the Cleansing and Brightening variant), so I can't give a full review. It may sound like I am exaggerating, but I noticed that my skin looks lighter after just one use. I have yet to confirm and will update this blog after 28 days. But so far, I am in love with this body wash! From its elegant packaging, down to its scent, and of course, the benefits I get out of it. It's a total package.
Its packaging is made out of plastic, but it doesn't look cheap. I also love that it comes with a pump, for easier dispensing, you can also control the amount you want to use. And yes, one pump goes a long way.
Now, don't get me started on the scent. Super fragrant, but not overpowering, and the scent stays on my skin for hours.
I also love how it makes my skin feel soft and smooth after every bath. Spot my favorite!
I've been using Olay BodyScience Body Wash every single day, for 3 months already and I am loving it! I love all 3 variants. My favorite variant used to be the Cleansing + Brightening variant, but I am not really after the whitening effect. So, my new favorite is the Cleansing and Firming. I still can’t get over how good good it smells!
It always makes my skin feeling fresh, moisturized and smelling divine. In terms of the whitening effect, I didn't notice much difference. Probably, because I was using the Cleansing + Firming variant more? Though, I noticed that my skin lightened a bit and it looks more radiant which is more than enough for me. As I mentioned, whitening is not my goal. So yes, I love Olay BodyScience Body Wash and I highly recommend it.
When we do skincare, our body tends to get left behind. We should also give our body the same amount of care as we do to our face. And now, there is no excuse for that with the new Olay BodyScience Body wash.
