Loveeeeeee it!! I use it every morning before I put my face on and it gives a slight glow and gets rid of all the dead skin. It also smells very clean.

I wouldn't say this cleanser is great but I like it. I have combo skin and had no problems with it drying me out. My skin feels nice and soft after using it. I will be sticking to my St. Ives Apricot Scrub though because it's a lot cheaper.

At first I bought this because it looked good and sounded promising but after a couple months of using this product my skin got really dry(possibly cause of the winter but this is the first time) , my skin also looked the same as if I wasn't doing anything to it. I would still get my normal breakouts and all, and still have my minor pimples, whiteheads, blackheads,etc. so honestly think that it's a waste of money

This cleanser is just okay. I have been using it for over a month now & can tell its drying out my skin. It is winter so maybe it would be better to use in the summer. As far as pores, I don't think its done much for it..but it hasn't broken me out either. If you can get this at a decent price its worth it.

I really liked this cleanser, even though I wouldn't buy this all the time sense the cleanser I'm using now works better for me. It really did what it claimed to do and minimized my pores around my nose which are large. But the effect didn't last very long, only immediately after I finished rinsing off. It also dried my skin out a bit on my cheeks and it doesn't foam up as well as some other Olay face washes. I had to use 2 1/2 pumps to get decent foaming action whereas with my current Olay Foaming Face Wash cleanser I only need a dime size amount to do my face and neck perfectly.

I really like how it left my skin feeling afterwards. It didn't dry me out and left me oil free for almost the entire day. It didn't irritate my skin but the smell was awful but worth it for the results.

Olay's Pore Minimizing Cleanser+Scrub is a "2-in-1 foaming cleanser that deep cleans and exfoliates to help minimize the appearance of pores. The Deep Cleansing Ribbons sweep away dirt and impurities, and the Exfoliating Microbead Ribbons refine the appearance of pores". Sounds simple enough. I'm a dedicated fan of Olay skincare, so when I had a couple of coupons I grabbed this 150ml (5fl oz) bottle at Ulta for just $4. This cleanser normally sells for around $7, though there will be a slight variance in price depending on where you buy it. Olay is owned by Proctor&Gamble, a company that does practice animal testing, but claims to be phasing these tests out. Do your own research on the subject before deciding to use Olay products. I can't find a specific country of origin on the bottle, but this product is imported.
I like this cleanser's packaging and presentation. The bottle is pretty similar to Glam&Glitter's Shimmer Cream's. The clear, recyclable has a pump that dispenses just the right amount of product. There is no tube that feeds the product into the pump, instead the cleanser is squeezed out via air pressure. There is a small hole in the bottom of the bottom of the bottle that takes in air when you press the pump, causing a platform in the bottom of the bottle to raise, pushing product out through the pump. I like bottles like these, they're neat and more efficient than traditional pump bottles, plus they minimize wasted product. The product label is as nicely designed as the bottle its affixed to. A black band wraps around the bottle with the Olay logo written in white. A wave is crashing over a very faint, barely visible Olay girl. The back of the label features a product description, directions, ingredients, and company info in both English&French.
Olay's Pore Minimizing Cleanser+Scrub is made up of two ribbons of product, swirled together in the tube. The swirling of the aqua colored cleanser ribbons, and the white exfoliating ribbons is very visually appealing. When pumped out, the two products become one. This cleanser foams up nicely and feels quite gentle and refreshing on the skin The scrub's granules are quite soft, not harsh at all. I wouldn't suggest this skincare duo if you're looking for serious exfoliation, but this product is good for a daily does of dead skin removal. The cleanser portion of this product leaves my skin feeling thoroughly cleansed but not stripped. This cleanser removes a majority of my foundation, but I still need to use a toner after to take care of that last little bit.
Are my pores feeling the effects of Olay's Pore Minimizing Cleanser+Scrub? Hellz yeah they are. I have noticeable pores on my nose and inner half of my cheeks, or at least I used to. There are parts of my nose that now look completely smooth and pore free. The rest of my previously porous areas are much smooth, but not perfect. We'll get there, I'm sure. Keep in mind that nothing can actually reduce the size of your pores. What this cleanser/scrub does is cleans the skin thoroughly, removing impurities and unclogging pores, and removing the dead skin cells that can clog them. This helps the pores contract back down to their intended size. This cleanser won;t diminish the look of your pores right away, it's a slow process. I've been using this product for about a month and I started to see results at about two weeks, and am noticing less and less pores every day.
I really love Olay's Pore Minimizing Cleanser+Scrub. I didn't expect it to actually reduce the look of my pores, but it really did! This is a very effective cleanser that gives gentle exfoliation. I find myself needing to use my St. Ives Apricot Scrub once a week now since I've started using this product. This cleanser/scrub is suitable for daily use, I personally use it as my night time cleanser. I just am really pleased by every aspect of this product; the packaging, the results, the consistency, the light, fresh scent. I don't know if Olay skin care can let me down, they never have before. I definitely recommend Olay's Pore Minimizing Cleanser+Scrub if you have enlarged pores that tend to get clogged. I will most likely repurchase this cleanser, I think its going to be a long term part of my skincare routine.

All 4's for now since I just tried it today, and got it on sale. Taking time to review this because after tons of Eucerin products, my foundation would still stay on after washing. I had to use a makeup remove sheet or astringent to take it off. Not with this - everything comes off and skin feels soft after. The scent is not overwhelming at all either, another great selling point. Glad I tried this. $5 at Ulta for big bottle.

I love this cleanser, the only reason I gave it 4 stars is because it runs out rather fast. I'm on my 2nd bottle and I will continue to repurchase this cleanser. Most cleansers leave my skin tight and dry, I have never had that problem with this 1, as for the pore aspect, I'm not sure if it helps, I don't have a pore problem, I just wanted a gentle, daily scrub that removes my makeup and this does just that. Very happy I found this.

I think this product does a fairly good job of cleansing. It has tiny scrubbing granules that somehow make my face feel very clean afterwards. I think any product that claims to shrink pores is lying, so I wasn't expecting much there, and no, it doesn't shrink pores. I haven't noticed any problem with overdrying either. My one complaint is the scent. It is strong, to the point of overwhelming some days. Although I think it does a pretty good job, the smell is just too strong. I question the wisdom of putting such a stongly scented product on my face.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Normal, Fair, Neutral Hair: Brunette, Straight, Coarse Eyes: Green
I do like this cleanser. It does a really good job at taking off my makeup before I go to bed and leaving my skin clean, but I haven't seen very much of a difference to the visibility of my pores. Nonetheless, it's a good product and I'm onto my third bottle :)
Age: 19-24 Skin: Very Oily, Fair Hair: Black, Straight, Fine Eyes: Brown
This cleanser has made me very happy seeing as that I have gone through about 4 bottles of these so far. I don't know about the Pore Minimizing claim it has, seeing as that I haven't really noticed any shortage of oil or tightened pores after use. It does, however, make my skin feel really nice and clean after use. I love the smell of this. I'll either use this product with either just my hands, after an exfoliating scrub, with my olay cleansing brush, or with a scrubbing pad. In all 4 cases, I love the way it cleans my skin. I alternate this with my clean and clear morning cleansers and neutrogena acne scrub. But this is definitely my go to facial cleanser.

This was a random, unexpected hit for me. I was at a my friend's house for a holiday weekend and she let me use her cleansers since I forgot mine. I used this for 3 days straight and WOW, I am impressed. While not a miracle product (it won't fight wrinkles, cure acne, etc.), this cleanser does make my skin look fresher and feel softer. I had to rush out and buy a tube of it for myself after I tried it.
This product is like the perfect mixture between a gentle, lightly foam-y cleanser and a scrub. I'm not sure if it's the blue or the white part that foams, but one of them turns into a light lather while the other contains some small scrubs for exfoliation. The amount of scrubs isn't dense enough for any hardcore exfoliation, but it does help to get rid of some flaky skin (like around my healing pimples) and to keep your face from looking dull. The cleanser aspect is lovely and gentle, and even if I don't put on lotion immediately afterwards, I don't feel like it dried out my skin or stripped it of oils. The whole cleanser washes off super easily so there's not rubbing or extra soaking involved.
There is a faint, fresh sort of smell for anyone who is sensitive to fragrances, but it doesn't bother me in the least. I LOVE how much product you get and how lovely the packaging is. The pump head gives you control over how much product you want to use, and the transluscent bottle tells you how much product you have left. I love seeing the white and blue swirls, it makes this product look high-end (a gimmick, I know). Overall, great cleanser that's readily avaliable at drugstores. I have no complaints.
EDIT: This is not really a makeup remover, but it will work as one if you're willing to be patient with it. This clenser did remove my fiber mascara, my concealer, blush and eyeshadows after a thorough wash. I wouldn't recommend using it as a makeup remover unless you really need one in a jiffy because you probably shouldn't use scrubs near your eye area.

If you suffer from blackheads then this is the product for you! It minimizes pores great and it leaves my face clean but not dried out. I use this once or twice a week as my face scrub, though when I bought it I used it everyday for a while and it did not dry my skin out or irritate it. This does have salicylic acid, but thats okay with me. Also the price is good, the bottle is attractive and doesnt smell too bad. All in all, this is a good cleaner and scrub, whether you want to use it once a week or every day. Highly recommended.

This was on sale at Zellers during their liquidation sale so I grabbed it since I love trying new cleansers!
I personally love scrubs versus cleansers because I feel they really give me a deep clean. I like the smell of this and it made my skin really clean on days that I stay home and relax. It was a pretty good scrub but I felt it didn't really do much for me. Not that I had high expectations of it anyway...
But one day I noticed that the product was being used up too fast and I thought I was going crazy. Turns out my brother just decided to use it without me knowing until he told me today. He really liked the clean feeling it gave him and that the beads were small enough to exfoliate his skin well. It didn't really work for his blackheads but he preferred over other cleansers and scrubs he bought for himself in the bathroom. Ah wells! Time to share so he can use it up for me!

I love this cleanser! Totally hooked. The scrub is abrasive enough to improve my skin, but gentle enough to use everyday. Gets all of my eye makeup off in one try. I use this in conjunction with neutrogena deep clean scrub after, and my skin has never looked better. I honestly can't believe how much my skin has improved with this magic combo. I wish cvs would carry it though, so far I have only found at walgreens. I hope this doesn't mean it will be discontinued.

I have been using this product as part of my beauty regimen for quite some time now. I use it with the Olay Refreshing Toner, and the Olay Complete for Sensitive Skin Moisturizer. I have only ever washed my face maybe every 2-3 days, and I use my toner to remove my makeup and dry up any oily areas, and then I primarily use the moisturizer as a base for my foundation. Needless to say, the only product I truly use as ultimately intended is this cleanser!
I adore the fact that it has gentle exfoliating beads in it, I love the scent, and I just love how clean it makes me look and feel! I never had terrible acne, and I am only 19 now and have very clear skin for my age, and I attribute it to this product. I love it and always recommend it to my friends. HG cleanser for me!

I picked this up at Costco, they had a great price w/a coupon so I tried it. Didn't remove makeup well at all, I usually had to use 2 pumps to get all my makeup off, & I don't wear that much makeup. I used both bottles, didn't have any problems but no noticeable improvements either.
It's more of a treatment than a cleanser. It's fine to add ingredients to a product to make it multitask, but first it has to work as a cleanser, then add additional effects. I didn't feel like my skin was clean after using it, and I've used it daily for several months. It also didn't lather much, kind of a cross between a cream cleanser and a lathering one.
I like the Olay skin care products so I think I'm going to try the Shine Control Cleanser next. This one just didn't do it for me.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Normal, Fair, Warm Hair: Brunette, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Green
This was mediocre for me - I liked it, but am certainly not going to purchase it again. The container is different, but functional and kind of makes it easier to see how much product is left to squeeze out. The scent is fresh and not overpowering. But unfortunately I found it to be quite drying.. though it's a decent cleanser its just not for me. Also this didn't really foam for me; if that is important to you I wouldn't recommend this particular cleanser.
For reference I don't have acne aside from the occasional pimple so I cannot say whether it improved that or not! For a gentle daily scrub I prefer my Biore Pore Perfect, it does not dry my skin out nearly as much.

I like to try new cleansers to change up my cleansing routine from time to time. When I saw this as a package deal at Costco (2 for $10), I figured why not since I love Olay's hair products.
NOTE: I used to have acne problems when I was a teenager, but it cleared up into my adulthood. Afterwards, I only had to deal with blackheads/whiteheads and hardly any postules. Sometimes I'd get bumps, but a whitehead would never form.
The 1st week I used this cleanser, my skin broke out BADLY along my chin line and under my chin, an area which I have NEVER broke out in my entire life. I immediately cut off the cleanser since it was the only thing I had changed about my skin care routine. I also stopped using Olay's moisturizer just because it came from the same brand. My skin has gotten better, but it' still breaking out to this day. I've been using weekly Aztec Indian Healing Clay masks to help remedy my skin and I'm getting good results. Smoother skin and less breakouts.
I've never regretted purchasing a cleanser as much as this one.
