Olay Pro-X Cleansing System

Thursday, 10 February 2011

A lot of people have been doing reviews on the Clarisonic cleansing system. I did consider buying it but I didn't really think it was worth it. I pretty much had guessed that sooner or later another company would come up with something like it at a better price... and here it is!

So, the Olay Pro-X Cleansing System. It retails at around $29.99. It isn't available here in the UK yet and I'm not sure if it ever will be, but I managed to get a hold of it on Ebay.

I was really excited about this because I had seen so many good reviews on it on MakeupAlley. I think in my mind I had already hyped it up so much that I didn't think anything else except positive things.
The box comes with the cleansing tool, a brush head that attaches to it, a spare brush head, two AA batteries, a sample sized face wash and a full size of the face wash too.

It has two buttons on the handle. The top one is the power button which turns on and off. There are two speed settings and the bottom button changes them.
The brush head pretty much clicks on very easily and once turned on, rotates around.
This is a battery operated tool which requires two AA batteries. The bottom part slides off (with a little difficulty and some jiggling about) and that is where the batteries go.

I went straight to the bathroom to wash my face using this as soon as I got it. The face wash I didn't think was that special.. I prefer my Clinique foaming face wash. I used the lower setting and in one minute went over my whole face with it. Rinsing my face off I already noticed how much smoother my skin felt.

Once I had dried my face I was amazed. I'm definitely not exaggerating when I say that my skin had never felt this smooth before. I always had flakiness on my skin and thought that my skin never felt or looked that clean.This cleansing system smoothed out my skin like no other cleanser.

After using it for a few days I'm still in love with it, I use it once a day now, before I go to bed, after taking all my make up off. My foundation glides on much more smoothly and I feel like it looks so much better. At the end of the day my make up still looks good and it never did before.

I would completely recommend this cleansing system. It is so cheap for what it does and I think I would rather go for something like this that is more affordable and definitely does what it advertises.

    1. Awww thank you so much! It is, in my opinion, better than the clarisonic and much cheaper! I have both now but I only used the Clarisonic a little because it just didn't work for me. This system has a rotating brush, not a vibrating one. For me it definitely works better, hope that helped x x

  4. Great it.....xoxoxo...^_^
