Olay Natural White Bar

Olay Natural White Healthy Fairness with Vitamin C was launched less than a month ago and I was super excited to try it out, since I have been using their soaps for quite some time.


Olay says:
Reveal your skin's natural radiance with Olay Natural White Healthy Fairness body bar! Formulated with certain Olay facial skin care ingredients, Olay Natural White Healthy Fairness with Vitamin C helps maintain your skin's natural fairness to bare your skin's radiance.

Pros:
  • It smells fresh (not overpowering). The scent lingers mildly on the skin.
  • It lathers well and is easy to wash off.
  • The soap had a harder texture (compared to the past Olay body bars), which means it won't easily melt in your soap dish.

Cons:
  • Because of its harder texture (as mentioned above), this bar is not as creamy as past versions of Olay bars. This soap left a clean but dry feeling on my skin. I am not a huge fan of the "squeaky clean" feeling after shower because I feel that my skin was stripped off all of its moisture.
  • I can't tell if there is really a brightening effect on my skin. It works like a regular soap to me.

Would I repurchase? No. But I would try the new Age Defying bar to see if it is any better than the previous version.
Price: P45.00
Available at leading supermarkets and drugstores nationwide.

Have you tried the new Olay body bars? How did you like it?

Love,
Helen

  2. Hi, I think this soap is meant for the body, because it might be too drying if you use this on your face. :)

  7. @Mhonixz: Maybe the effect of this soap is more of brightening, wherein it even outs your skin tone versus whitening. :D

  9. @Anonymous: Yes, I agree that this has no whitening effect. But it's too drying for me. Nice to know that it works fine with moisturizing your skin. :) I use the Anti-Aging variant (the one with the purple box), that moisturizes my dry skin better.

    1. I'm not sure. I don't recommend this for kids though, it could be drying.

    1. Try products from Snoe. They have a wide array of products with skin whitening benefits. One of their bestselling items is the Snoe White Black Bleaching Bar. They also have glutathione masks (that comes in powder form which you'd have to mix to form a paste).

    1. I didn't see a drastic whitening effect with this one bar, so I can't tell. Try other more potent whitening soaps nalang. :)
