I will never be without this! I don't feel like all of my makeup is completely off unless I use this facial brush. It exfoliates really well, and overall my complexion looks so much more smooth and soft. I think I paid $30 for this, which is completely worth it - especially compared to other facial brushes like the clarisonic. I've tried the Pretika facial brush and I liked the concept of it oscillating as opposed to just spinning like the Olay Pro x... But the brush head on the Pretika was really big and it didn't feel like it ever got my skin all the way "clean" & it just quit working after like 2 months. Ive had my Olay pro x brush for about a year so far and ive had no problems :) Pretty much, this brush is amazing!
This is great, I use this nightly to really clean my face. When I first got this I used it twice a day and that was a little too much for my skin. Now that I use it just at night( which is when my face is the dirtiest) my skin is clear and smooth and I feel like it gives my complexion more clarity and brightness. I use this with regular Noxzema in the blue tub and my skin has never been better, I'm oily and acne prone for reference.
At night I use a makeup remover wipe and then I use this, so I'm not just spreading my makeup and oil from the day all over my face. Then when I use toner the cotton ball is almost always clean. I think this helps your moisturizers, serums, and face masks perform better too.
A little feedback on my skin:
I suffered from "Adult" acne starting at around age 22 (I am 28 now!) I tried SOOO many different products since then and I was finally able to get it under control. Since I used so many different creams, scrubs, pills, etc. I'm not too sure as to what got my acne under control, but I want to say it was thanks to the birth control pills. However, I have been off birth control pills since like 3 years ago, and my acne didn't flare up again. One thing I did change and still do till today is how clean and germ free I keep my face (from not touching my face with dirty hands, keeping my cell phone clean, and even sleeping on a clean pillowcase). I think that's helped A LOT too. I get the occasional pimple but no big deal.
After battling with my acne, I was left with a whole bunch of scars. I am medium/olive skin color and any scar on my skin looks 10x worse and takes FOREVER to start fading! For the past about 3 years I was searching for the one product that would get rid of my scars. I am happy to say that this product did the job and I just discovered it about 8 months ago. However, I use this product together with the Aveeno Skin Brightening Daily Scrub and it worked wonders that I even got my mother and brother hooked on it. I hardly have any signs of dark spots/scars now. I clean my face every morning and every night using the scrub with this brush. It sometimes drys my skin a bit but it's all comes under control with my moisturizer. There has been days when I feel my skin a bit more dry than normal, and I fix that by using the brush only in the morning and not at night (but I still use the scrub using my hands). Also, if I wear makeup, I remove it with a makeup remover towelette before using the scrub and brush. I also use Vitamin E oil over night EVERY night to help keep the dryness out.
I'm not a person to write reviews, cause I'm kind lazy when it comes to that lol...but I really hope this helps people out there that have the same problems I have!
I know a lot of people are comparing this to the Clarisonic; I've tried both and I have to say that they are not comparable at all. I found the Clarisonic MIA to be far too harsh for daily use, even though I used the delicate brush head. The MIA actually gave me numerous abrasions! The Olay Cleansing System is far less bulky, and much more gentle. I can use it every single day without worrying about abrasions, as long as I don't push it into my skin too hard. I use this with my Dove Nutrium bar soap and my skin is soft, smooth, and radiant. I will update if anything changes!
love.love.love.LOVE!!! I have been dealing with a really bad acne flare up in my skin for the past 3 months. I finally got sick of it and wanted to find a way to get rid of it. After looking online, I found the Clarisonic and then went onto Sephora to purchase it...until i saw the 250 price tag. No way, Jose!! So after a little more research, I found that this is an exact dupe for the Clarisonic..for only 30 bucks!! DEAL. so i went to my local drugstore and bought it. This thing is so amazing. My skin has cleared up to normal after 2 weeks of using this! It really gets deep down into your pores and scrubs them. But you have to be gentle when using this becuase if you scrub really hard it can irritate your skin! I HIGHLY recommend getting this! :)
I only bought this as a dupe for the clarisonic and it works pretty good! You notice a significant difference in your skin's texture and I recommend you use it after your shower, or before bed so that the products will penetrate in your skin much more effectively. I said I won't purchase this again well because I don't need to buy a new one obviously, just new brush heads and batteries. If you do happen to buy this, You should buy it at Cosco because you get A LOT for your buck! I should've done it -__-"
I have used this tool for a few months now and absolutely love it. It gets my face very clean of all traces of makeup. The cleanser it goes with is too pricey so I use Biore Ice Cleanser. First, I remove makeup with Equate cleansing cloths. I then follow with Note cleanser. My pores are clear and my face feels so soft.
Be careful not to overdo it with this brush. I used it probably too aggressively for about two weeks last October, and by the end of the two weeks, basically my whole chin, cheeks, and between eyebrows were full of clogged pores (started out with just a few here and there). My skin also was really dry and old looking. Again, however, I think I was really overdoing it with this brush - I used it twice a day and for probably a couple minutes longer than I should have. To add to it, I wasn't moisturizing at all. So, yeah, this brush potentially gave me lots of clogs and dried me out, but I can't say for sure how much was due to the brush and how much was due to just a really poor choice in skincare routine (overwashing, overstripping and not moisturizing). The point is, take it easy with this brush; if your skin seems irritated and/or dry, use it less often or for less time. I think I would have liked it more had I done this, but am scared to try it again because I absolutely loathe clogged pores.
I contemplated the Clarisonic Mia for a good year or so and since I have such sensitive acne prone skin I didn't want to be one of those people that got worse skin from using it then let it sit in my vanity unused. I chose this for $30 and I figured if this did not work, I would be out a lot less. I use this every morning in the shower with Biore's Ice cleanser followed by the Biore Toner(I'm forgetting the exact name right now). I started using this the 2nd week of January and now almost 12 weeks later I would never ever go back to using just soap or face wash. Right now, my skin is absolutely flawless and clear. No breakouts or painful cystic bumps anywhere. I almost can't believe it. My skin has not been clear for 2-1/2 years. Now don't get me wrong, I have had some breakouts here & there but no where near the amount I had before using this tool. I feel like using this also progresses the healing time if I do have a blemish. As far as old acne scars, I still have many but they are fading probably just because of time not this tool. I love this tool and would absolutely recommend it to anyone with acne prone skin. I'm very cautious about what I use on my face, just looking at a new face wash breaks me out. On my right cheek area I had 6-7 blackheads that I never wanted to mess with because I know they would blow up into a huge blemish, I focused this tool on them 1 day and it must've brought the blackhead to the surface because it did become a full blown zit by the next day. This has happened with almost all the blackheads and now my cheek is clear. I would absolutely buy this tool again and I will be purchasing new heads for it very soon.
I bought this cleansing system about a month ago and I have not had any improvement with my skin. If anything, it just broke me out even more. Ever since using this my face has been producing more sebum/oil than usual. It did not help with smoothing/exfoliating my skin's texture at all and I am very disappointed in this product. I definitely will not purchase this again.
