You guys, I have something interesting to share with all of you today. Over the last few weeks I’ve been using a new product that I thought you may all want to learn about. You may be seeing this display at your local stores or you may have contemplated picking one up for you to try. Either way – I’m going to share my thoughts with all of you on this pretty cool and genius product. The DUO is available in Olay, Old Spice and Ivory. I got the Olay – which I was quite happy and excited about. So – what is this interesting showering tool, you must be asking? Well, let’s get into it, shall we? I’ll be giving you the details on the Olay DUO today and sharing my experience on this particular product. Ready? Let’s go!
So what is the Olay DUO? Well, the DUO unites the clean of a bar, the care of a body wash and the experience of a puff/implement, while giving consumers the multi-sensory experience they are looking for and desire for the best of all worlds. Basically, it’s a dual-sided cleaning tool that is infused with a flexible cleanser inside. There are obviously two sides – one side is the scrubby side that exfoliates and renews the skin’s surface and a soft flexible cleanser interior conforms and lathers while the smooth side softens and conditions the skin.
The Olay Duo (Dual-Sided Body Cleanser) retails nationwide for $9.99 – $12.99 (MSRP). Available in popular scents, I got the Olay Soothing Orchid & Black Currant but Old Spice offers Old Spice Swagger and Pure Sport and Ivory has a scent called Refreshing Clean. I can only speak to the Olay Soothing Orchid & Black Currant, but I can tell you that it’s a a fresh and fragrant scent that I’ve been loving. If you are someone who is not fond of fragrance, you may not like that these come scented, but I really enjoyed the smell.
So – with these particular shower duos, using them is easy. You simply just add water. You can experience the DUO daily for a complete, close clean and an invigorated and healthy skin look. By adding water to your DUO, you will start to get a rich lather that is perfect for the body. Use the scrubby side to exfoliate and clean and the smooth side to get a soft and gentle massage for your skin. You can use the DUO daily and hang it dry after each shower. DUO’s built in cleanser indicates when it’s time to dispose and get a new one – when the lather fades, time to buy again. This will give you up to 30 uses.
Why is the DUO so awesome?
Well, it’s more effective than other cleansing bars & tools because of it’s patented multi-layered cleansing technology that delivers a 2x better clean vs. their basic body wash and puff. You get a deeper clean as it exfoliates the surface skin deeper than a body wash puff. You also get a complete clean because the flexible cleanser glides and contours to your every move and groove. And, you get a delightful scent experience with 3-4x more fragrance ingredients than their current bar soaps and body washes.
I haven’t used a bar soap in years but have read that bar soaps are perceived to clean well, though you can trade off on delivering soft and smooth skin. Body washes are perceived to lather and nourish (which is what I used prior to the DUO) well with a great scent experience, but you can trade-off on the deep clean and exfoliation. DUO was invented because 34 percent of men and 44 percent of women in the U.S. say that they are dual users, meaning they use both a body wash and a bar soap to get the clean, lather and soft skin they yearn for. The DUO basically offers benefits of both of those things and eliminates having to use both to get the job done.
My skin feels smooth and soft but really feels like I got a good clean. I’m beyond impressed with what is being offered and I look forward to trying other scents and fragrances. I would love to see this offered in a variety of scents in the future and look forward to trying them all. Here’s the deal – if you are someone that uses a loofah or puff to clean, you’ll enjoy this product. If you are someone who uses a bar soap to clean, you’ll enjoy this product. I love that there is so much in this item that you get a lot of uses from it and it’s something neat and exciting. I like neat and exciting new things.
For over 130 years, from the launch of Ivory bar soap to the introduction of their body wash, Procter and Gamble has delivered innovative products based on the evolution in consumers’ body cleansing behavior. Over the past 20 years, the cleansing category has not seen the introduction of any new forms – until now.
Now, here’s the low down and my actual thoughts of this product. Like I mentioned before, I really did like the scent of the Soothing Black Orchid and Black Currant – while it was stronger than what I’m currently using, I thought it smelled slightly fruity with a tad bit of musk but overall it was a clean scent and one that lingered on the body for hours. When it comes to the type of clean that the DUO provided, I think it surely got me clean without question but left my body and skin feeling soft and moisturized. I didn’t feel like I had a build up of product left behind on my skin and my skin didn’t feel dry at all. I thought I got good exfoliation from the product which is great. I currently use a product called Via Buff and found that this still exfoliated my body of dead skin cells well. I love how the DUO feels against the skin. The exfoliating side really cleaned perfectly, but gentle and the soft side just left my skin feeling nice. And, I just love how convenient this product is – easy to use, no need to deal with messy soap or body wash and considering the price point and how many uses you get out of this product, I think it’s at a reasonable cost. Overall, I will continue to buy this and have purchased another to replace this one since I seen it at my local Walmart this past weekend.
