I liked my other Olay products, so I thought why not give this a try since I just needed to add something to reach the free shipping @ drugstore.com. I dont remember the price, but it was like under $5 IIRC.
Been using it for about 2 weeks now, and I'm not even sure if it is really a cleanser?! I use this during shower to wash my face and remove makeup. I usually wear mineral MU, which shouldnt be hard to remove with just facial cleanser. Everytime after I used this cleanser, my face was still oily. Did not feel clean at all like with other cleanser. And whats worse, it broke me out =_= I barely get any acne, but with just 2 wks of use and now i got lil acne on my forehead and chin... argggggg >< I think i will just toss my bottle and definitely no repurchase for me. continued >>
I've been using this stuff since my teens. I have dry skin so while I need a sudsy cleanser to take off my makeup at night, I like something creamy in the morning. This stuff exfoliates slightly and leaves my skin feeling smooth and looking bright. It removes any oil/cream from overnight without drying me out. I'm in love with it and I hope it sticks around forever.
It's not the worst, but it's not the best. It didn't cause my skin to break-out, it didn't dry out my skin, but it didn't exfoliate my skin. The micro-beads should just be done away with, because this is lotion like, it doesn't get sudsy. That doesn't bother me, but the fact I can't wash my make-up off with this is frustrating. It doesn't stick? Hopefully that makes sense. If I use this with my Sephora brush, it just gets filmy and stuck inside the bristles. And this isn't effective when you use your hands. I guess what i'm trying to say, is, it's not bad. On a desperate occasion it wouldn't hurt me to use it. I just didn't gain any results from it. I'm beta hydroxy sensitive, and this didn't burn thankfully.
i wanted to really like this cleanser after reading the reviews. while i liked the beads and how moisturized my skin felt afterwards, i broke out after two days. i tried convincing myself that maybe it wasn't because of the cleanser, but after a week of not using it, my skin is clearing up again.what a shame.
I love this. It is very gentle, so don't expect your skin to feel stripped and dry after. It leaves my skin feeling baby smooth. While it won't work as easily for heavy-duty eyeliner, it is very efficient for the average makeup user. I definitely plan to repurchase and recommend it to anyone looking for a simple, no-fuss facial cleanser.
This product is creamy, so you can imagine its cleaning power. The beads in the cleanser barely works for me. After I wash off the cleaser, I feel some residue on my face, which defeat the original purpose of getting it. I want something that can clean up my skin and pores, not something that stays on my face after washing off. To be fair, I say the quality is ok, but it's not good for me.
Cleansers are one of my biggest battles. My skin is clear, not acne prone, not terribly sensitive, and borders on dry. Soooo many cleansers leave me walking out of the shower with a tight face that is dry and cracked. Now, its nothing a little moisturizer can't fix, but can I not just have a clean supple face?
I've used some milk cleansers, and they leave my skin wonderfully plump but the minimal makeup I wear aint coming off. Enter olay age defying...
Its love. It really is. It removes my makeup, and(drum roll) it leaves my skin hydrated. I rememeber the first time( I got it in an olay gift set) I used it, I ran out off the bathroom skipping. Yes, I'm weird but when u have skin issues its a hallelujah moment when u find something that works.
I don't write many reviews here, but after reading the others on this product I had to share my experience with it. I have no idea what a lot of people here are talking about...I love this cleanser! I've been using it on and off for years and it's one of the ones I always fall back on. And for those of you that have read other reviews, the one thing I have to say is this; it removes makeup so well for me! What are you guys talking about? I have used it with liquid foundation and powder, as well as primer and MAC Studio Fix foundation. Both times it took off my makeup just fine! What in the heck kinda of makeup are some of you wearing??
For as long as I can remember I've always washed my face twice in the evenings. Once to remove my makeup and then once to actually cleanse my skin. I was told by both my dermatologist and a few facialists over the years that it's best to do that with any cleanser (even cleansing oils!). So two washes with this cleanser and all my makeup is off...ALL of it! I use a witch hazel based toner after sometimes, and anytime I do it comes off completely clean.
The other reason I wanted to write this review was because I think it is a very underestimated face wash. It's a cream cleanser so it's not super drying. It has BHA to help exfoliate out pores. It has very small and gentle microbeads that can be used daily to exfoliate the surface of the skin. And most importantly, it leaves your skin feeling clean and normal. Not irritated, dry, tight, oily, or dirty. After reading the other reviews I just kept thinking...what in the heck am I missing? How could anyone not love this??
Love the smell, love the pump, & I love no dry skin! continued >>
I love this product, but I'm only giving it 3 lippies. Reason being, it does not function well as a cleanser; it's much better used as a mask. When I first tried it, I hated it because it didn't remove makeup, leave my skin clean, or do anything at all really. One look at the ingredients told me all I needed to know: this should not be used as a cleanser! The active ingredients all need a lot more time to do any good than the few seconds they're on the skin if this is used as a cleanser.
The way I use this now does wonders for my skin and actually makes me question all the other claims Olay makes. I apply it to freshly-cleansed skin in the shower, then I do everything else like condition my hair, shave, etc. The last thing I do before I get out of the shower is rinse it off my face. This way, the active ingredients have enough time to actually do something and my face is left soft, clean, moisturized, and glowing.
No matter how much I love this as a mask, I cannot give it any more than 3 lippies as a cleanser since it just does not cleanse and if you use it for that, you're wasting all the ingredients you paid your hard-earned money for.
