Fall in Love with Olay This Season Fresh Outlast Crisp Pear & Fuji Apple Body Wash is a Hit this Fall!

 

Olay has a body wash to satisfy your Fall senses with its Fresh Outlast Crisp Pear & Fuji Apple Body Wash!

 

This refreshing body wash is designed to work with skin’s natural pH so it won’t dry your skin, leaving it more hydrated than regular soap with continuous use. And its farmer’s market-inspired scent is ripe for fall skin!  The Fresh Outlast Crisp Pear & Fuji Apple product is one of five body washes in the Fresh Outlast collection.

I love how this one smells so delicious! It also suds up really well and leaves my skin feeling softer! Look for it at a store near you this Fall!
