Quench Daily Lotion Shimmer
This is a good, fairly lightweight but still moisturizing body lotion that leaves your skin with a shimmer finish. If that’s a benefit to you, then this may be worth considering, though skin doesn’t need to shimmer to be healthy. Just as with Olay’s other Quench body lotions, this contains a helpful blend of classic emollients and glycerin along with cell-communicating ingredient niacinamide and vitamin E. Amino acids are on hand and they function as water-binding agents to help prevent moisture loss. This body lotion is best for normal to dry skin. This and the other Quench formulas from Olay are better formulas than what you’ll find from lines such as Lubriderm, Eucerin, or Curel. This body lotion does contain a small amount of fragrance.
Note: This product used to be called Quench Daily Lotion Plus Shimmer, with Cocoa Butter and also went by the name Quench Daily Lotion with Vitamins E & B3.
Leaves skin shimmering and smooth. Replenish skin with an immediate burst of moisture. Skin becomes noticeably softer and more resistant to dryness.
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.
