I just repurchased this cleanser, so I figured it was about time that I write a review! I don't have particularly sensitive skin so I can't comment on how gentle this product is. But on my skin, this works fabulously to take off all my makeup and doesn't strip -- my skin doesn't feel tight afterward like it sometimes does with harsher cleansers. The best part is the hygenic pump dispenser, although it's a pain to travel with. And it's cheap! Less than $5 everywhere I've seen it.
I used this when my skin was acne prone and oily (now my skin has changed to slight acne and dry skin). Anyways, I do recall this drying the heck out of my skin and it did irritate my eyes. However, it did remove all of my makeup. It says it is for sensitive skin, but its probably more for normal skin, who likes a good clean. Moreover, I thought it was diffifcult to wash off.
Over the years I tried this many times. It really does nothing for me. Does not really clean my face. I attribute a lot of my blackhead buildup and other issues to years of Olay use. Will never go back.
I bought this product because my acne-prone skin was starting to get too dried out. The price was great, but the results weren't. I used the product for 2 weeks and I broke out worse than I had in a while. After switching back to my old product, my skin went back to the way it had been before I used the Sensitive Skin Foaming Face Wash. I ended up gaving this product to my mom (who has dry skin) and she loves it.
I used to use a $25.00 face cleanser/wash I got from the dermatologist's office but this stuff is a million times better! It only costs 5 bucks, you can find it anywhere, it removes makeup wonderfully (even eye makeup) and does not dry out skin. I have extremely sensitive skin and even the most supposedly gentle of gentle cleansers can irritate my face but this left me feeling moisturized yet thouroughly cleaned after use. :::Update::: After about 2 months of daily use I decided to give this up and switch to something else. It eventually began to irritate my skin and make it extremely dry and taught. I'll only use it as a makeup brush cleanser from now on.
My HG cleanser. It removes all my makeup and it doesn't make my skin feel tight or dry afterwards. I definately notice a difference in my skin whenever I've tried a new cleanser. I always come back to this.
I used this cleanser for years along with the olay moisturizer for sensitive skin and loved it. I used to use this cleanser in the colder, drier months and Purpose cleanser in the summer months. Im thinking about returning to this skin care regiment after trying out other products for the last few years. I have combo skin, and break out occasionally in the T-zone, I also wear foundation, powder, blush, mascara everyday and the Olay always took off my makeup with no problem. My skin felt clean afterwards with no residue and was never tight and dry. Plus, you can't beat the price.
I love this face wash! It does a great job at removing all my makeup from maskara to foundation. It leaves my combination skin soft and clean, not at all dry or oily- just perfectly balanced with no breakouts. I have used this cleanser for years and won't stop. It's the only cleanser I have found that is gentle yet easily removes all makeup and at the same time non- comedogenic and great priced.
this is a really mild cleanser that leaves just the right amount of moisture on the skin. it's not strong in the sense that it'll remove heavy, nonwaterproof makeup in one rinse so i'd suggest using makeup remover for that before using this. i like that there is no fragrance or dye in it. it really is perfect.
