Last week while walking through Wal-Mart, waiting on Vince to do something, I came across the Oil of Olay Facial Cleansing System.
I’ve used it for 4 or 5 days now and I wanted to use it for at least a couple of days before giving my opinion on it. Obviously, I’m in love with it or I wouldn’t be writing about it. I’m terrible about skin care. I have a fairly mild and controllable case of rosacea so I have to be real careful what I use on my face. I almost exclusively (except for the occasional Dial soap) use Cetaphil cleanser and cream on my face. I do order it all from Amazon.
The little cleansing tool caught my eye because . . I guess it’s because of the sweat and dirt and oil on my skin from being out in the garden so much, but I’ve noticed it looks like my pores are kinda clogged and my face was feeling like it needed exfoliating but anything rough enough to exfoliate would cause issues with my skin . . which seems to be always waiting for any reason to give me a hard time.
When I saw the cleaning tool, I thought . . this might work with my gentle Cetaphil cleanser, but yet scrub enough to clean the pores and do the exfoliating. The first night I used it (and I’m only using it at night), the little brush is so very soft and gentle, I didn’t figure it was going to do any good at all, but when I used my hands in the shower to help wipe the water out of my eyes, I could hardly believe how much better my face felt.
After using it 4 or 5 times, with no problems with my face, I think it’s going to work out just right. Even though it says it’s for daily use, I might switch to using it every other day, just to keep from having a problem. I’m really impressed with how my face feels and how much smoother my makeup seems to go on. I think I’m using way less moisturizer and less makeup.
The little gadget comes with a sample of Oil of Olay exfoliating cleanser, but I didn’t use that. The little gadget needs 2 AA batteries, which were included. It says it’s ok to get the whole thing wet in the shower . . which I did.
The price at Amazon is less than I paid at Wal-Mart and if you’re interested in ordering it, look down the page a bit (link at the top of this post) and there’s a $3.00 coupon . . which I also didn’t have at Wal-Mart.
This is not a paid promotion . . just something I thought others might be interested in trying.
