This cleanser is fine, although it doesn't say ANYWHERE that it has exfoliating beads and that is exactly what I didn't want. I wanted just a plain cleanser. The beads are so minuscule but still the packaging is misleading. Overall it's a great cleanser, I always love Olay, but you shouldn't exfoliate everyday it's bad for your skin. Now I need another new cleanser.
Thiiiissss is now called "classic" age defying blady blah, same ingredients. AND is also the same as the Olay 7 Total Effects Blemish control cleanser. Yeap its true. So while they discontinued that, this still exists AND it's cheaper. Thought you could fool us, Olay. I actually really like the 7 blemish as it's one of the few things that doesn't clog or over dry me. It's not a miracle and doesn't stop every skin issue, but compared to the drama I've had with every other line, it's pretty darn close. Well, this is the same product, so ditto. Don't think this will take off makeup, I have a second evening/PM/nighttime cleanser for that. This is good for when you wake up, and want to cleanse, but not strip your skin. So for that it's great (and sort of moisturizes so you don't really need one. And I break out to most so that helps me tremendously). I dig it.
Update: Don't think I'll be repurchasing after all. While I used the Blemish one for years and it seemed moisturizing and ok, I never escaped the bumps and I feel like it has to be salicylic acid. I've gone off and on it so many times and narrowed it down (not that I don't react to other things too) but I just think I should avoid it. Otherwise it's a decent cleanser.
Been using this for a little over a week and so far it's working well. My skin needs moisture but I have to be careful since it 's prone to break out and clog easily. I'm also getting fine lines and so anything that strips my skin of moisture only adds to this issue. This contains BHA and glycerine so it fits both of the needs my skin has and my skin has been responding very well. Even skin tone (yay!), no breakouts and it doesn't leave my skin feeling stripped. Only complaint is that this doesn't clean makeup off very well, especially waterproof. Other than that it's a nice simple face wash that is under $5. Will keep using as long as my skin keeps getting along with it.
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.
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.
