I love this product! It's a good resurfacing product without stripping your skin and making it sensitive. I do cleanse my face before I use it. I love how it's warm and you can keep warming it up by getting your fingers wet and massaging the skin again. Hasn't irritated my skin, so I will keep using it! I've heard great results with it like helping to lighten skin discoloration, which I have a lot of. I hope it does the trick!
I really like this scrub, but I can't use it daily - about twice a week does the trick. I imagine my skin would be raw if I used this everyday (even with a light touch). It leaves my skin silky smooth. The smell is not the best, but I have never used an exfoliator that works this well. At almost $20 bucks a tube, I do think it is a little on the expensive side, but since I use it twice per week, it lasts a long time.
I like to use gentle AHAs to exfoliate my skin. I had been using Alba Botanical Papaya Enzyme mask 2x/wk but I felt like it didn't do all that much.
I've only had this for about a week & I use it every other day (I don't like to be too rough on my skin). I might start using it daily because I love the effect it has on my skin but it does add a few more minutes to my nightly routine which can be annoying. I do prefer to use this at night because it does cause some redness.
This leaves my skin incredibly soft, with my pores looking noticeably smaller. In combination with my L'oreal Magic Lumi primer & Translucide powder, my skin has never looked better.
My routine: remove eye makeup with Neutrogena, wash with Trader Joe's All in One, tone w/Simple Toner, use the mini peel & then follow it with Olay Night Firming Cream.
The price does seem a bit high until you realize how big the container is and how small of an amount you need to use continued >>
i bought this after seeing all the great reviews and sadly, i cannot say that i love this product. the packaging isn't particularly good, the warming effect is a bit gimmicky and it can actually irritate sensitive skin so i don't find that very nice. I dislike the smell (reminds me of fake berry candy) and i didn't see any noticeable improvements to my skin. If you're after something to clear up the skin, try an ultrasonic facial brush e.g. Clarisonic or the Harmony Home Spa Cleansing system
I paid $30 CAD for this, which is pricey for a drugstore product, but I was willing to splurge because I have had good results with glycolic acid. I am experienced with 10% glycolic creams and 30% glycolic acid chemical peels, which I found fast results that gave me smoother, clearer, and radiant skin. So, I was really excited to try this.
I am not sure what percentage of glycolic acid is in this peel, but I think it may be a low percentage. I used this everyday for a few months (one bottle goes a long way, as I only use a dime-sized amount each time). However, I was very disappointed with this because after daily use for 3 months, I did not notice any improved different in my skin. Furthermore, while the metallic packaging is unique, it punctures easily. My bottle developed a hole in it somehow and I had to curl it like a toothpaste tube to get any product out of it.
Like others have said, this has a warming sensation that fades away quickly but this is gimmicky as there were no improvements to my skin. I much prefer the Olay Pro X line, such as the exfoliating cleanser, paired with my Pro X brush.
I would not purchase this again.
Um yeah so this is like a diamond in the rust. Although I have other medications that I use that my dermatologist prescribed me nothing comes close to this product. Hands down right after the first use you will have a glow. I'm trying to go easy on the make up so today I went bare face ( with a lil lip gloss on) and had my sun glasses and was out the door. My mom made a compliment about my face being 'dewy'. She said it looked like I had make up on. Haven't had a compliment in years about my face. A lot of people think drugstore products don't work but honestly I believe you just have to find something that works for you and your skin. I believe this product is for all skin types. I use Retin A at night so I can only use this in the AM. Gave it a 4 because the price is damn near 20 dollars.
Overall, a pretty decent product. It seems a bit spendy compared to other scrubs, but I enjoy the warming and my skin certainly feels quite silky afterwards. I don't think it rates up with Philosophy but much less $$.
This is one of my favorite products. The heating effect makes washing my face very enjoyable. The beads can be rough if you press too hard onto them, but with gentle and circular motions of the hand, the product does its job. My face always feels clean but not tight after washing with this, which is just what I like. This product also does a good job of getting rid of whiteheads. I tend to break out with very tiny bunches of whiteheads on my forehead but it only requires one wash with this product to get rid of the whiteheads. I don't have a regular routine to this product. Normally I try to use it once per week or as necessary. I'll definitely repurchase again.
I bought this almost a week ago and have been using it nightly in the bath tub. Let me say I LOVE THIS PRODUCT! I was never a huge fan of Olay until now. These products REALLY work.
The price tag on this treatment was a bit hefty, but I have been struggling with milia for the past couple of years and I was desperate to get them GONE by summer!
This treatment is incredibly luxurious feeling. Smells good, feels GREAT on skin, and rinses easily. I was worried that combined with my other exfoliation methods that it would burn or hurt my face, but, it has not yet.
I use it nightly in the bath tub and leave it on for a few minutes and rinse. Then I follow with the Night Resurfacing Elixir.
I'm not sure which product it is or a combination of all, but my skin looks great and for the first time in a few years, my milia is finally disappearing!
Try this product. It may seem pricey, but it doesn't take much to get the job done. It is still WAY cheaper than a professional peel and easier on your skin as well.
Please remember this is NOT a face wash/cleanser. It is a treatment, meant to be used AFTER your cleanser!
I was curious and asked Olay (through their website) what the percentage of glycolic acid in it was and was given this: "I'm sorry, that information for this product is proprietary information, and I am unable to provide you with it. " BOOOO...
However, I did purchase the product and have been using it for about 3 weeks. I am unsure if I see results but it definitely makes my skin super soft after usage.
