Olay Skin Whitening Bar Review and #OneWashWonder Launch Recap

Constant sun exposure, stress, pollution and a busy lifestyle can take its toll on our skin. Filipinas are looking for a gentle yet effective solution in lightening their skin tone. Olay, a trusted brand worldwide, applies its skincare expertise to whitening to give us Olay Skin Whitening Bar which promises to give you natural white skin after first use. Too good to be true? This is my product review on Olay Skin Whitening Bar after more than a week's use.

Product Info - Olay Skin Whitening Bar 
Filipinas who want whitening sometimes endure tingling or burning sensations on their skin, thinking their soap is working. New Olay Skin Whitening Bar is the #OneWashWonder that provides natural white skin from first use. New Olay Skin Whitening Bar has a Triple Whitening System that gently exfoliates, brightens and evens the skin tone. It even contains 90% of the active ingredient found in Olay Natural White Day Cream. More than its proven efficacy, it is also dermatologically and clinically tested to be gentle on skin with naturally-derived ingredients like rose, pearl and milk extracts. It also has a longer lasting scent and a rich lather that leaves skin soft, smooth and moisturized.. 8 out of 10 Filipinas agree that it helps whiten skin from first use.

New Olay Skin Whitening Bar is available in Rose & Milk, Papaya and Vitamin C variants for only P34 (60g), P46 (90g) and P92 for 3 (90g) bars. Available at most major retailers nationwide.

My Review
I'm usually pretty skeptical about any product that claims to whiten the skin from first use so when I first tried this product at the #OneWashWonder event I was pleasantly surprised that my hands looked brighter or fairer from one wash.  I also took photos below as proof of the brightening effect of the soap. Upon closer inspection, I noticed that it leaves a slight shimmer or slight white cast on my skin which explains the whiter skin from first use claim. My favorite variant from the 3 is the Rose and Milk variant simply because I love the scent and the color of the bar. I have been using this soap for more than a week now. Even though I am constantly exposed to the sun every time I go out for lunch, my skin remains fair and looks brighter. I think with consistent use of this product it could deliver its promise of lightening your skin tone.


After one wash- notice how my skin looks instantly fairer and brighter.

Olay #OneWashWonder Event 

I was so thrilled when Olay invited me to be a part of their #OneWashWonder launch and online campaign. Me and a select group of bloggers and influencers got to try and experience first hand the instant whitening effect of the Olay Skin Whitening Bar. Some of us were also chosen to have our photos taken by the super talented and gorgeous photographer Sara Black for the #OneWashWonder campaign.

A week before the event they sent this gorgeous round box of roses with the invite to the big reveal

At the launch we were greeted with a fabulous display of pink and white rose decors, yummy food and great company. 

Here I am mugging for my photo for the campaign. 

The big reveal - up until then we weren’t really sure what the product was going to be.

Our host for the event with beauty queen, model and entrepreneur Valerie Weigmann. “Getting and maintaining fair skin has never been easier,” she shares.

 Here I am giving the Olay Skin Whitening Bar a try.
