Olay Foaming Cleansing Jelly Review

I saw this in Boots and immediately picked it up. I have a different Olay cleanser I use for travelling which I really love so I wanted to give this one a go as well.

Olay Foaming Cleansing Jelly Review

Olay Foaming Cleansing Jelly is for normal skin (there were a few for different skin types) and has Vitamin E & B3, and pro-vitamin B5. This promises to remove makeup and impurities and refreshes the skin without over-drying it.

Experience

I’ve been using the cleanser from the end of January twice a day, as my AM cleanser and my second cleanser in the PM. I haven’t experienced any irritation.

As the name suggests, the Foaming Cleansing Jelly produces a gentle lather, the texture is similar to most face washes on the market. This face wash leaves my skin feeling clean and refreshed but doesn’t leave it dry or tight. It has a scent, it just reminds me of cleaning products but it’s not unpleasant and doesn’t linger.  It doesn’t also leave a residue on the skin

Verdict

There isn’t much to say other than this is a good cleanser at a very good price from Olay. It removes dirt, excess makeup and breaks through oils left from my cleansing balms. It’s a great easy to use cleanser. The one I have is for normal skin, I have normal to combination oily skin and it works great with it. I do really like this cleanser and would recommend it.

This is £3.99 at Superdrug

Olay Daily Facial in a Box Review

 

 

Olay Daily Facial in a Box is a dry cleansing cloth that is activated with water to remove makeup and cleanse the skin. I was very sceptical when I first came across this product when I was browsing Amazon (as I do) one late night (that pesky you may be interested in tab!). Anyway after watching a few (a lot) of YT videos I decided purchase one box to test out

Olay Daily Facial in a Box is a water-activated cloth with Vit E, grape seed extract and Olay moisture. It also provides some exfoliation action. It promises to remove makeup and cleanse the face, to leave it hydrated and refreshed whilst tightening pores

 

Experience

I have had these for a while down and I think I am down to my last 3 or 4. I use these for travel or at home as part of my quick & easy cleansing routine. I have tested these out both for makeup removal and a cleanser.

The dry cloth is activated by water and easily provides a rich lather which I was pleasantly surprised by. To remove makeup/cleanse, I simply use the cloth in circular motions all over my face, neck and chest, rinse and repeat till the cloth is no longer brown. Depending on how much makeup I am wearing, I would probably use 3 or 4 to do this. The scent is subtle but lovely and the cloth feels gentle on the skin. The water activated clothes are excellent for taking of foundation, mascara and even some liquid lipsticks. There is a small amount of residue left even after 4 clothes so I always use one final cloth as a face wash to complete the routine. My skin doesn’t feel as hydrated as Olay’s claims but it doesn’t feel stripped. I like the cloths because they have some salicylic acid in them but probably not enough to have a huge impact on the skin.

 

Verdict

The cloths became a go-to on lazy days and another travel companion in addition to my Nip Fab Glycolic Foaming pads (review on my Instagram). They are effective and produce a rich lather that cleanses the skin without stripping moisture. If I am not mistaken, they have one for different skin types.

You can find the Olay Daily Facial in a Box in stores like Superdrug, Boots although I find they are always sold out, tbh I have never seen them in store although there is shelf space for them. I bought mine on Amazon for £3.00 as an add-on item but it’s also available to purchase standalone

Olay is one of those skincare brands from the drugstore I have stayed away from for years because I had a bad reaction to one of their products YEARS ago! I think it was an eye cream for dark circles that gave me lots of rashes anyway I managed to stay away from them until now. I will be repurchasing soon and I am looking forward to giving Olay a second chance!
