In case you didn't know, Summer is coming. With that arms, legs, and various other long covered body parts are making their way out from under the layers we wore during the winter. For me this means is time to start moisturizing, something I don't do too often because it takes too long and I don't like my skin being sticky under my clothes. In addition to that I don't want my lotion to leave stains on my clothes either. So, I remembered getting two of those small travel sized tubes of Olay's in-shower body lotion last year, and I loved them so I decided to try it out again. Of course they re packaged and/or re formulated, but the new stuff is just as good.

PROS: You use this lotion in the shower. Just rub it on then rinse it off. No hassle. After that you just pat dry and you're good to go with super soft skin and you don't have to wait for it to sink in before you can dress. This really does leave my skin really, really soft. You notice it almost immediately. It does have what I call the 'Olay' smell, but its not too strong and I like it. I could see it being too strong for some people though. This also comes in an Age Defying formula.

CONS: For some reason they put a hole at the top of the bottle, I guess so you could hang it up on your shower. Honestly I think its a waste of space and the bottle is kind of heavy so it could break whatever its hanging on. Also the biggest concern to me is that Olay does test on animals, but I couldn't find anything like this by a cruelty free brand. Please don't hate me, I really tried to find a substitute!

This is available at Target, Wal Mart, Rite Aid, anywhere. Target is the cheapest place to get it. Its in the body wash sections, not the lotion section. There are two sizes, the smaller is $2.99 at Target and I think the larger is $5.99.
