We are all familiar with body lotions, moisturizers and creams, but a body conditioner was entirely new to me! I love new products and skincare ideas, and to be honest, my skin has been feeling a lot drier recently.

A product that claims to moisturize my skin quicker than before, is one I’m interested in! Let’s find out what exactly the Olay Rinse-Off Body Conditioner is and how it works. Continue reading this review to find out!

What is the Olay Rinse-Off Body Conditioner with Shea Butter?

This body conditioner is similar to a body moisturizer with the main difference being, instead of using it after you shower, you use it during your shower. It’s a lot like a hair conditioner, except for your body.

The idea of a body conditioner is to stop dry skin in its tracks. Using hydrating skincare on wet skin is so much more effective than on dry skin. Olay Rinse-Off Body Conditioner is designed to give the skin lasting hydration as well as soft skin.

Best Suited For

Olay Rinse-Off Body Conditioner is best suited for those with dry skin. Many with sensitive skin love it too, and even though it contains some fragrance, it’s not likely to cause a reaction since you rinse off the conditioner pretty much straight away.

How To Use

  1. Clean your skin as you normally would
  2. Dispense the body conditioner into your hand and smooth it onto your wet skin
  3. Rinse, then pat dry with a towel and admire your moisturized skin

Formula

The key ingredients in the Rinse Off Body Conditioner are:

  • Vitamin B3 Complex: Deeply hydrates to nourish, replenishing the skin’s moisture barrier
  • Shea Butter: Conditions skin and fights dryness all-day

POLYSORBATE 60, DMDM HYDANTOIN, PHENOXYETHANOL, DISODIUM EDTA, IODOPROPYNYL BUTYLCARBAMATE, TOCOPHERYL ACETATE WATER, PETROLATUM, HYDROXYPROPYL STARCH PHOSPHATE, DIMETHICONE, CETEARYL ALCOHOL, FRAGRANCE, NIACINAMIDE*, BUTYROSPERMUM PARKII (SHEA) BUTTER,

Olay Rinse Off Body Conditioner Review

After my usual shower routine, I applied a generous amount of the body conditioner on my shower sponge and applied it to my body. Taking time to cover your body with the conditioner is worth the effort. By doing so, you are giving your skin all the time it can get to absorb the product’s nourishing ingredients.

I let the lather linger for maybe more than 3 minutes before washing it off. Just like your regular hair conditioner, the coat felt rather slippery yet silky and suave. I honestly don’t love the slippery texture of the lather because it just takes more rubbing and washing.

However, I feel the same about my hair conditioner and yet I still use my hair conditioner despite the extra work. In reality, it’s all mind over matter! And in my opinion, it’s well worth the extra effort. Your skin will thank you later;)

It does have a faint fragrance but I wouldn’t say it’s overpowering or lingering either. It eventually fades after rinsing and all that’s left is the usual smell of a washed body!

As I was drying myself with my towel, I immediately felt the difference in my skin after using the conditioner. My skin felt soft and smooth in a luxurious way!

You can straight away see the difference between using a moisturizer after you shower and a body conditioner during your shower. You get a much more intense moisturizing and hydration experience using a hydrating product like the body conditioner during your shower.

Olay says you may opt not to use a body moisturizer after showering if you have used the conditioner— “unless you want to”, but honestly, my skin didn’t need it. It was already super soft and plump!

Pros and Cons of the Rinse-Off Body Conditioner

Pros

  • Intensely hydrates and moisturizes
  • Smells good
  • Easy to use
  • Quick fix for very dry skin

Cons

  • Texture Too Slippery
  • Not Cruelty-Free

Common FAQs

A body conditioner is a great way to protect your skin. Although less known than hair conditioners, they are equally as good!

Although it may work for some people, it’s always best to use a facial product for the face and a body product only for the body. Since body products aren’t made for the face, they can make some skin concerns worse.

The main difference is in the consistency. A body conditioner has a thicker and greasier consistency than a body lotion. For very dry skin, a body conditioner helps replenish the skin’s lipid barrier quicker.

In theory, yes. However, it’s designed to be rinsed off and you may find that it’s too greasy to leave on the skin. It can also lead to irritation in sensitive skin so it’s not something I would recommend. There are plenty of amazing body lotions that are meant to leave on!

My Thoughts

I have been using the Olay Rinse-Off Body Conditioner twice a week for the last 5 months or so and I still have about a quarter of it left.

The body conditioner is great value for money, it is wonderfully affordable and it’s also extremely effective.

If you’re someone who’s got a solid skincare regimen (for your face!), but sometimes neglect the neck going down, the Olay Rinse-Off Body Conditioner may just even things out and be the solution you need.
