Winters in New York mean moisturizing day and night and a couple of times in between. As temperatures drop and ultra-drying indoor heat kicks in, it’s all I can do to keep from looking like a White Walker. Oh, the ashiness of it all!

Infused with Shea butter and other moisturizers, the Olay Shea + Manuka Honey body wash is downright decadent. The lather is rich and the double ribbon formula cleanses and moisturizes leaving your skin silky smooth after just one use. It’s a double duty beauty!
