Average at best for my mostly oily skin, but it exacerbates dry patches I didn't know I had. While it doesn't lather much nor has a residue, it doesn't really remove makeup very well. The big turn off for me is that it stings my eyes horribly, no matter how much I tried to avoid it. It's a very runny formula, so that's probably why. Otherwise, it wasn't particularly bad nor particularly great, so I'll be moving on.
I absolutely hate how most cleansers cost a fortune these days. It is very hard to find a tube or bottle of face wash that costs less than $8. After running out of cleanser recently I decided to buy this only because it was the cheapest (around $5 for a tube - the one I got comes in a blue 7oz tube I believe).
I don't like that the opening on the tube is so tiny, you have to squeeze really hard to get product out. It's milky in color and doesn't really have a particular scent. I find that it does not foam very much. I like a cleanser to foam a little bit more so I feel like it's working. Though the instructions state that you only need a small amount, I feel like I need to use twice the recommended amount. This cleanser does not remove eye makeup (non-waterproof) and it also does not remove all makeup off my face. Every time I use it I wipe my face with a towel afterwards and I always get makeup stains.
I think this product is okay for someone who wears very little to no makeup otherwise skip it. Though it is ok for now, I will not repurchase.
I've been using this cleanser for years. I have sensetive dry skin with some rosecea and this hasn't irritated my skin or made it feel too dry. I do have oily t-zone and I don't find it working as well in that area, it just doesn't feel completely clean. I still have yet to find one product that works for both areas. In the meantime, I just use Dove soap on oily t-zone to supplement this cleanser.
Also, I use BE makeup which is waterproof and lot of cleansers do not remove it very well. This one takes everything off. I tried other skincare lines but always end up going back to Sensetive Skin Wash.
I gave it four lippies because its not quite perfect and I really hate the packaging-if you traveling, its very hard to deal with because its a pump. wish it came in a tube
This face wash effectively removes my makeup, yet somehow doesn't leave my face feeling stripped or dried out. I have very sensitive skin and unfortunately, even some cleansers will activate new breakouts. This one has not. I've been using it every day without any problems, and I recommend it if you have skin that is very sensitive/reactive. Just one warning: the pump on the bottle is absolutely terrible and will probably frustrate you.
I absolutely love this face wash. I have tried many cleansers and this is my favourite so far. It completely removes my eye makeup (I usually wear non waterproof mascara and line my eyes with eye shadow) while being really gentle on my eyes and my face. If my oily skin gets even a little too dried out by a cleanser than it starts producing more oil to make up for the temporary dryness.
Since it's so effective and yet so gentle my acne, and general condition of my face, has improved. I like this product so much I don't think I will bother to stray to another cleanser for a very very long time.
Honestly, I always thought the Olay skincare line was for older ladies & men only. Haha, I was wrong! I use this to take off my makeup before using my Neutrogena cleanser to clean my skin. It has not broken me out at all and I love it. I can't say it has actually done much for my skin but I can definitely say it has a great feeling on my skin. I've been using it for over 2 months. It's great! (:
I can't believe how much I love this cleanser. I have sensitive, combo skin with rosacea and this cleanser made my skin so soft. I do use a moisturizer right afterwards and use it only at night to take my makeup off. In the morning I just rinse my face with water. This has actually helped with some problem areas. I also like that it has no fragrance. I used to use Olay products over 10 years ago and then moved on to more expensive products as my income increased. It's about the same time I started having bad skin...now that I have no income (stay at home mom), I've gone back to Olay and my great skin has returned. I should have never left.
Update: This started to irritate my eyes and I am a contact lense wearer so I took a lippie for that. I will still use it for the rest of my face but will not buy again for that reason.
I usually use Pond's Cold Cream to take my makeup off then Aveeno Moisturizing Cream Cleanser to wash my face but I haven't been able to find the Aveeno Cream Cleanser anymore so I have been looking for another gentle cleanser to use after my Pond's. I read a lot of good reviews on here on this Olay Sensitive Foaming Face Wash so I tried it but I wish I wouldn't have. I have dry, sensitive skin with mild rosacea and have been using Ziana prescribed by derm to see if it would help the redness on my face. Well, I used this Olay one time by itself because I didn't have any makeup on and it felt great while using and after I felt a little dry but not too bad. The next day my cheeks were really red more red then usual and then they got more sensitive and have been hurting and I have dry patches on my cheeks. I only used this one time and haven't changed anything else and have went back to my normal routine but I'm still trying to get rid of this dryness a few days later. I will not try this again but I did read just now that someone uses this as their makeup brush cleaner so I think that's what I'll use up this bottle for.
I love this cleanser! I have tried absolutely everything out there, and I always come back to this one! My skin is very sensitive and acne-proned, so I used to use cleansers and moisterizers and night gels,etc. to clear my acne...until my skin was so irritated that it hurt to not anly tuch it but look at it :). So, i remembered that olay has a true wash for sensitive skin and I went back to it. In 2 days it clamed my skin completely and restore it to soft, clear stage!! Now, I use the cleanser along with the Hydrating Lotion, and love it! No acne, no irritation! I recommend it to all my friends. BTW, my mom uses only Olay and she gets so many compliments on her skin!
Love this cleaner! It's not harsh at all, doesn't upset my sensitive skin. It removes my makeup very well without stripping it of it's moisture. It's exactly what a gentle basic cleanser should be. Will be using this from now on.
