Although, I have dry skin I prefer a foaming cleanser as opposed to a creamy cleanser. I went to the Olay website & did some research. I do not mind the scent of Olay skincare so, I expected this foam to smell great. The scent is ok but, I would have liked it more if the scent was very "fresh" smelling like the Olay creams. After using this Total Effects 7 in 1 Anti-Aging Revitalizing Foaming Cleanser, my skin feels smooth & not dry @ all which is a delight!! The 3 things I would change is the tube, fragrance, & just a tad more foam. I find that the product is difficult to squeeze out towards the end. Maybe if the plastic of the tube was softer, the foam would dispense more easily. If I like a product, I am a very loyal consumer. I am already on my 2nd tube. :) Olay, please do not discontinue selling this!! Thank you......... continued >>
This product is effective at washing off my foundation, but is a little harsh for my sensitive skin. I like the scent, and think this face wash might work well for others with skin that isn't quite as sensitive. I will not buy this product again because of the slight irritation. Overall, the effects are exaggerated (to be expected with it's claims), is slightly irritating but should be fine for normal skin, and is a decent face wash.
This is a decent cleanser, but I don't necessarily feel revitalized or any of the other 7 effects promised after using it. Like many products, it over sells itself. As for how it works, it gets my skin clean, though I have to wash the area around my eyes twice, because it doesn't remove non-waterproof eyemakeup on the first pass. It has a typical gel-soap consistency, not too foamy, and rinses fairly easily. It's not too stripping, but I do feel a slight tightness after rinsing - though it's nothing that can't be solved with a few drops of almond oil. Because it is slightly drying, I only use it at night when washing off the day's make-up....it's strength is not necessary in the AM. If you wear a lot of makeup, or waterproof makeup, you may want to use makeup remover before using. Personally, I'd rather use a cleanser that takes it all off, I don't want any extra steps with extra products at night.
The price is up there for a drugstore cleanser - between $8 and $10 depending on where you buy - and I think that is a little high for what it does. What it claims to do is a whole lot of BS - it's just a decent cleanser, nothing more, nothing less. There are many others on the market that do the same thing for much cheaper. I'll use this one up, but doubt I'll repurchase.
I have always liked cleansers that foamed up. However, now that I am older, I was afraid that this product would dry my skin out. First, I'd like to talk about the price. I have comparison shopped & as always Walmart has the best prices. Second, I like the tube because it can stand up. Much better than a pump container. Third, it smells & foams up nicely. I don't mind the Olay scents @ all. The consistency of the foam is very mild. After washing my face, my skin feels nice & silky, never dry. I will definitely re-purchase this item. PLEASE do not discontinue!!! Thank you, Olay!!! :) continued >>
i love the face wash its amazing BUT OMG!!!!! I HATE THE SMELL OF THIS CLEANSER!!!! does any one have a Kaiser hospital near them>?>???? this smell is IDENTICAL to there soap in there bathrooms!!!! for that reason alone i cannot use this cleanser the smell makes me feel gross and sick like im in the hospital lol sorry Olay this fragrence is a big FAIL continued >>
This is a decent cleanser but not one that I would probably repurchase. Like the rest of the Total Effects line, the cost runs a bit higher than other drugstore products. I think it's justified as far as the moisturizers are concerned, which contain some quality ingredients. Not so much for a cleanser in my opinion. The product claims listed on the package are a bit ridiculous and not at all what I expected when I purchased this. I really just want a cleanser to cleanse my face :) This one foams up nicely, rinses cleanly and does a decent job of makeup removal, although it never quite got all my mascara (which isn't waterproof). It's not overly stripping. It has a pretty strong floral fragrance which I wasn't crazy about it. The packaging is perfect, a squeeze tube with a plastic film over the opening that prevents leaking. Overall I think this is worth trying for normal to oily skin but it didn't impress me enough to repurchase.
I started using this about a month ago and have definitely seen an improvement in my skin. I'm not a big fan of the perfume-y scent, but I got over that. It cleanses well, removes all my makeup, leaves no residue, and my skin feels clean, but not tight - which is perfect. It's a little pricey, but considering it's effectiveness, it's worth it. I'm repurchasing.
A great cleanser. It leaves no residue and my skin feels so soft and looks radiant. I will repurchase.
This cleanser came as a free gift with another Olay product. I find it to be almost the same as other foaming Olay cleansers in appearance and performance so I would buy it again, but only on sale. The increase in cost and name ( Total Effects) over the cheaper Olay cleansers is to me just a marketing ploy.
I was using this about 3 years ago and accidentally left it at my mom's after a weekend visit. Rushed out to pick more up because I was loving it then of course got distracted by some other cleanser since I'm such a cleanser ho, lol. Anyway, wish I would have continued using this. Have been through probably a dozen (literally) cleansers since then, and just bought some again. First time I've used it since I left it at my mom's 3 years ago.
Review: FABULOUS. Better than I remembered, since it removes makeup (blush, powder, concealer, eye shadow, eye mascara) amazingly well in addition to smelling incredible (hey, that stuff matters to me), leaving my skin clean yet not tight, lathering well, helping decrease my pore size, and helping control the occasional acne I get.
Conclusion: My days of being a cleanser ho may finally be coming to an end, lol.
