Quench Daily Body Lotion
Olay's Quench Daily Body Lotion is worth considering if you have normal to dry skin and want an inexpensive, widely available body lotion that absorbs quickly without feeling thick or the least bit greasy.
Your skin will be treated to classic emollients along with an impressive amount of niacinamide and antioxidants, including green tea and vitamin E. An assortment of amino acids (which function as water-binding and replenishing agents) are also on hand to help improve dry skin, making this an all-around winner; however, those with very dry skin will need something more emollient.
The only drawback is a slight amount of fragrance, but it's not intrusive which means a reduced risk of irritation (but "reduced" doesn't negate the risk). Still, we can't deny that as far as drugstore body lotions go, this is one of the better formulas around!
One other comment: 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.
- Moisturizes and replenishes skin without feeling occlusive or greasy.
- Absorbs quickly.
- Contains anti-aging ingredients like niacinamide and antioxidants.
- Inexpensive and widely available.
- Not everyone will appreciate this lotion's subtle sparkling finish.
Quench Daily Lotion provides skin with an immediate burst of moisture that continues for 24 hours. Its fast-absorbing, non-greasy formula contains a Vitamin complex. It draws deep into skins surface, to repair and nourish the moisture barrier to break the cycle of dry skin. After just one use, you'll get all-day dry skin relief. In just one week, your skin's ability to maintain moisture will improve. And once you finish the bottle, your skin will become resistant to future dryness. The result is beautiful, deeply hydrated skin with a sheer, fresh feel.
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.
