Overall Rating= 3+ stars3.25 Stars = Good+

Container:  Plastic flip-top tube

I used this facial wash for several days prior to this review.  I tried it by itself, with a cleansing brush, and with an exfoliating cloth.  I also used it on several clients to get their feedback.  To receive completely unbiased reviews, I gave it to my testers in unmarked containers so they did not know what brand they were testing; they only knew that it was a skin cleanser intended to be used with water.

Morning Review:  This is a light weight cleanser with a creamy consistency.  It does have tiny exfoliating beads (hydrated silica, not harmful polyethylene microbeads) which are not abrasive.  It takes very little product to cover your entire face.  It is non-drying and non-irritating.  I could not find a fragrance-free version.  This is lightly fragranced but it did not make me sneeze, nor did it make my nose run.  I do not think men would like this scent.  I have very sensitive combination skin and it cleaned the oily areas and did not leave the dry areas feeling tight.

Morning Rating = 3 stars3 Stars

Evening Review:  My skin stayed soft throughout the day and did not get oily. The cleanser does an okay job of removing makeup. My makeup wipes did find small traces of makeup on my skin after using the cleanser.   My tester with normal skin said it felt good but they did not care for the fragrance.  My tester with dry skin really liked it and said she would buy it.

Overall Review:  I would say this is a good cleanser for all skin types, particularly dry or aging skin.  You will want to stay away from this one if you are allergic to even a small amount of fragrance.  This will not do much to exfoliate your skin, despite the fact that Olay claims this product “gently” exfoliates.  I agree with that assertion.  This is an okay product to use with a cleansing brush, but there are others that will perform better.

  • All ages;
  • All sexes (men may not like this fragrance);

    I just bought the duo pack and the cleanse cloth what do I use first before applying the cream

      Hi Sophia, I’m assuming you’re referring to the Olay Advanced Anti-Aging Duo Pack and the Daily Facials Cleansing Cloths. The cleansing cloths are for daily cleansing. The cleanser in the Duo Pack is a an exfoliating detoxifying pore scrub that you should use once or twice per week. After cleansing you would apply the moisturizer. I hope this helps. Please let me know how this works for you.
