I was in search of an affordable drugstore body wash that would not dry out my skin and settled on this. It smells great to my nose, produces a nice lather that is gentle on the skin, and doesn't break me out. It is easy to find too. You also get a pretty decent size bottle. I'm glad I took the chance.

If you are in search for a moisturizing body wash with a great smell and a decent price, you might want to try this one.

The smell is great, soft and clean without being overpowering, and the texture is nice. This product leave a clean feeling on the skin and a light moisture film, but not enough for me to stop moisturizing after my shower (I have really dry skin).

I prefer Vitabath shower gel, for me they are as moisturizing as this one but more natural, but If you don't care about the ''natural part'', try this one!

First of all, I am biased because this body wash caused me to get pimples on my chest and back. I have been using this for about 6 months, and I substituted other products and I know it is this that is breaking me out.

Pros: Makes my skin feel nice, smells great, and lathers very well. The size of the bottle allows it to last for a while for an affordable price.

Cons: I started getting little red pimples on my chest after 1 week of use, and then started getting the larger painful pimples on my back as well. I actually barely used this to scrub my chest and back but even then I the remnants of the product would get on those areas and break me out even after thorough rinsing.

If I had to choose one body wash to use forever, I'd pick this. It has everything: a rich lather, an addictive and lovely light scent, it leaves skin moisturized yet it doesn't leave behind a film or a greasy feeling, it doesn't cause breakouts or irritate skin, and it's affordable. It's a shame I can only rate it five lippies! :)

Great body wash. very moisturizing. like someone else said below, I didn't realize how drying other body washes are til I used this. however im on the hunt for something more environmentally friendly, organic if I find one. so i wouldn't buy again, but that's the only reason. I hope I come across something before winter, blehh. but if you could care less, this does what it claims. isn't too expensive for the huge bottle. good to use on a loofah for exfoliating without irritating the skin.

This is an okay body wash. It cleanses well and leaves skin feeling fairly soft. However, it smells terrible. Terrible. Typically, I would not let smell get in the way of using a product that I think works well, but this doesn't work well enough to put up with the awful, artificial, perfume smell. I don't think that it causes breakouts, but it doesn't seem to do anything to prevent them either. I have used non-medicated body washes in the past that have kept my very minimal bacne under control; this does not. I will use the rest of the bottle, but I will not buy again.

I absolutely love this body wash. I use it on a wash cloth. I recently switched from using this form my dove bar soap with coconut and this Olay moisturizes my skin unlike anything else. It makes me feel clean and smooth after my shower. Sometimes I will use my black soap bar on my skin and it will dry my skin a little but I wash again with the Olay and It puts the moisture right back into my skin. I absolutely love this product.

I purchased a large bottle of this on sale at Bed Bath & Beyond, which worries me because this usually means it is on the verge of discontinuation! Anyway, I absolutely love it and will have to go on a search for it now that I am completely out of it. It is definitely very moisturizing, which as other reviews mentioned is not always the case with soaps/body washes. The scent is a little strange, not great but tolerable. (It does not last after it is washed off anyway.) It is super rich and lathers well, even when only a small amount is used. I think this would be great for those with sensitive skin, although I do not have particularly dry or sensitive skin. Still, I found this product quite nice and moisturizing. No weird reactions or anything of the sort. Definitely pick some of this up if you're looking for a *real* moisturizing body wash that lathers nice! Also, added bonus-it can be used as a shave cream if you're in a pinch!

I didn't realize how drying other body washes are until I tried this! As other reviewers have said, most body washes that claim to be "moisturizing" and make skin softer actually do nothing of the kind. In fact, I think often they actually make my skin drier! I just figured that it wasn't really possible to make a truly moisturizing body wash. Olay has proved to me this is not true. Ultra Moisture leaves my skin very soft and hydrated. Before I used this stuff, I had large, stubborn dry patches on my knees and the tops of my feet. Even with a really good lotion applied regularly, they wouldn't go away. Now that I am using the Olay, these dry patches are fading rapidly. And I haven't been applying lotion at all. My skin feels so good out of the shower, I don't feel like I need it! This leads me to believe that my old body washes were actually causing the dryness. Or at least making it worse. Ultra Moisture smells really good, too. A light, delicate floral scent. I actually originally bought it just because I liked the scent. I am very picky about fragrance, but I can't get enough of this. I wish Olay made a lotion with the same scent. Anyway, if you don't like the scent it's very light, not overpowering at all, and it fades quickly. Great product.

I use this body wash every winter only. The smell is a little goofy. My skin tends to get very dry and itchy in the winter if I don't apply lotion every day (and I hate lotioning up all the time, too sticky for me). This body wash is a GREAT replacement for everyday lotion. It keeps me soft and smooth and no itchy skin when I leave the shower.

Once spring hits though I start using something else with a better smell like the Olay Luscious Orchid because this stuff just smells kind of ODD.
