Whether you're a mom, mom-to-be, or just a busy person who only has time for a five-minute shower, everyone wants effortlessly soft skin. Blogger Taylor Dini’s quest for smooth comes at an important time: as she enters the late stages of her pregnancy. It's the perfect moment to address her thirsty, sensitive skin and get rid of red bumps caused by dryness. Dini’s goal is hydrated skin and an enhanced pregnancy glow. That's where Olay Ultra Moisture Body Wash with Shea Butter comes in. This shea butter-infused body wash cleanses skin and leaves it smooth and soft, thanks in part to Olay's unique Lock-in-Moisture technology, which infuses moisture ten layers under the skin's surface without leaving behind a film. Genius.

As Dini prepped for baby, she replaced all her body-care products with Olay Ultra Moisture Body Wash with Shea Butter to get long-lasting, healthy-looking, hydrated skin in just two weeks. That's a big ask for just one product. We caught up with her to find out how her skin is doing after the two-week challenge. (Hint: It's great.)

She’s enhanced her pregnancy glow.
Dini’s watched her skin glow much more since being pregnant and she’s hoping to keep it up through her last weeks and into parenthood. But dryness can put a wrench in those plans. Since using Olay body wash, she’s been able to boost her skin’s hydration, allowing it to glow even more than before.

It has also helped smooth the texture of her skin overall. “Before using the Olay body wash, I struggled with getting rid of these red bumps on my shoulders, chest, and elbows,” Dini says. “I had even gone to a dermatologist about it and they told me that it was extreme dryness. I am thrilled to say that my red bumps are gone.”

She's able to use fewer products overall.
"I feel like your skin is more sensitive when you're pregnant, and my skin has always been sensitive," Dini says. Using just one product allows her to better control how her skin is feeling and lets her focus on getting a moisturized, natural glow that's soft to the touch. "What I noticed with the Olay Ultra Moisture Body Wash with Shea Butter is you just have to use that one product. It really hydrates. And you don’t even need lotion after you shower,” she adds.

It saves her time.
After the Olay Ultra Moisture Body Wash with Shea Butter two-week challenge, Dini says the feel of her skin is most comparable to when she incorporates a hydrating shave cream, body wash, and coconut oil into her routine — and that’s not including the improved texture. Add up the time it takes to apply all of those products and you're looking at 10 minutes or more. That might not sound very long, but when you're a busy mom-to-be, every minute counts. "I was using at least three different products to try to keep my skin hydrated," she says. "Because even though I have the pregnancy glow, my skin is always so thirsty and I’m constantly trying to keep it moisturized."

It's her self-care moment.
Pre-baby, Dini is busy arranging and decorating the nursery, packing her hospital bag, and also unpacking after her recent move from Los Angeles to Chicago. Showering with Olay Ultra Moisture Body Wash with Shea Butter gives her a precious few minutes of self-care, courtesy of its nourishing ingredients and shea butter scent. "It’s a spa-type smell without being overly fragranced," Dini says. "I’m not sure if it’s because I’m pregnant or I’m just sensitive to strong scents, but this smells natural, not overpowering. I’m getting settled while finding that time to relax."

She'll keep it up after she gives birth.
Dini isn't just using Olay Ultra Moisture Body Wash with Shea Butter to soften her skin while pregnant. She's planning to keep it in her shower long after the baby is born (her due date is October 11). "It’s going to be a dependable product for when I have the baby," Dini says. "Even now, I’m so busy trying to get everything organized, finding time to shower is already a struggle. When the baby comes, I can’t imagine how that’s going to be. To be able to use one product and get the quick results I want? I’m excited about that."
