Olay Body Quench Mousse (Active Hydration) ($7.99) is an amazingly powerful moisturizer. I say this because it doesn’t feel moisturizing to the touch, and you just don’t feel like something as light as a mousse consistency can be would give you all-day moisturization. But alas, it actually does.

It dries nearly instantaneously, which is a huge plus, because I often hate having to wait for a heavy body butter to dry–especially in the morning when it’s “go, go, go!”

It absorbs quickly, and yet it lasts quite awhile – I find my legs are still silky smooth at the end of the day, which is quite a feat considering how inconsistent I am with lotioning my legs up (aka they’re scarily scaley sometimes). I am definitely pleased to have this around for beach-going days, underneath my body sunscreen. It’s also great for when I need something quick and easy so I don’t scare people away with my dragonscales!

    I saw this product somewhere elese and was wondering if it was just marketing, but it does sound great. One question, since it’s a mousse and dries very quickly it’s got alcohol, right?

    I’m glad you reviewed it. I saw it at the Wal-Mart, but not knowing anything about it or how well it kept away the dryness, I couldn’t justify buying it.

    I LOVE this moisturizer. It’s a mousse of course, but I find a little goes a long way. In the winter, I hated moisturizing my body because the lotions were so cold.. but then I found this, and it went on my body and adjusted to my body temperature immediately. Also, it didn’t leave the sticky feeling of regular lotions.

    Ohh I might look into it! Sounds good! Winter is approaching in Australia and I’m looking for a body moisturiser that will keep my skin well-hydrated.

    Also, what happened to the reviewing system thingy that you implemented a while back (e.g. ‘Affordable’, ‘Worth Buying’, ‘Consider it’ etc.)?

    thanks for linking back to this as I have to now try this. I too tend to neglect the legs, lol. Its embarrassing when I go for a pedi to roll my pants up and find ashy, scaly legs. Thank you!
