OLAY TOTAL EFFECTS 7 IN 1 FOAMING CLEANSER REVIEW
How was your weekend? mine was hectic. I’m getting busier day by day and recently i have visited one Spa for some anti-stress treatment (Review coming up soon) 😀
Today i have decided to share my review on famous Anti-aging facewash by Olay. I have purchased the Olay anti-aging day cream and this facewash was complementary with that. Whole duo cost me around 750/- INR i guess. Read on to know if it has impressed me or not 🙂
About the product & Directions to use:(As mentioned on tube)
Feeling rather lazy to type. Please refer the picture for the claims. Also i have highlighted the area where the expiry date is written on the tube. 😛
Price & shelf-life:
130/-INR for 50gm. almost 2 years of shelf life.
My Experience with Olay total effects 7 in 1 foaming cleanser:
Before I start sharing my experience i want to tell you all that i’m a little biased towards gel cleanser and i prefer them over creme cleansers. So don’t be judgmental if i praise gel-cleanser a lot 😛
Packaging is flip-flop cap tube with brown-black-beige designs over it. cap is sturdy fit and does not let product leak or spill which makes it travel-friendly.
Color & Texture:
It is a pearly-white facewash with creamy texture and thick creamy consistency.
It has floral powdery fragrance which linger for 5 mins.
My Experience about using it:
As i told you i am not really a fan of creme cleansers and i prefer gel based cleanser anytime over them. I somehow don’t get that squeaky-clean yet non-stretchy feeling with creme cleansers. I feel that creme cleansers are a bit over-drying compared to gel one’s.. okay.. okay.. i won’t complain much. So when i have used this cleanser i liked that it leather really well and gave me clean feeling but at the same time i didn’t like the fact that it left my face a bit stretchy (some might think it tightens the skin, but that is stretchy feeling ) that means it is not at all for dry-skinned beauties for sure. Also it over-dries the skin that means more oil production as after-effect for oily-skinned beauties (yeah that’s a fact, our skin is very rebellious). Overall i find it decent facewash for normal-skinned girls but then again why to pay 130/- for 50gm of an average product.
One more thing i want to add is it doesn’t clean your makeup at all and it stings in eyes badly if accidentally goes inside. I have kept it permanently in my travel bag as it is huss and fuss free for travel.
What I like about Olay Total Effects 7 in 1 Foaming Cleanser:
- Good for normal skinned beauties.
- cleanses face well if no/minimum makeup on.
- Doesn’t break-out or irritate sensitive skin.
- Doesn’t dry out skin.
- Parabean & SLS free.
- Travel friendly packaging.
- Pea-size amount is enough to lather.
What I Don’t like about Olay Total Effects 7 in 1 Foaming Cleanser:
- It dries-out skin so not at all suitable for dry-skinned beauties. Also over-drying leads to extra-oil production in later hours that means not very suitable for oily skinned beauties.
- cost is higher for the performance it gives.
- average cleanser for me.
- Doesn’t remove any makeup except BB cream. You have to follow up with toner to clean any leftover makeup 🙁
Final Verdict: 3/5
It is pretty average and costly.cleanser for me so I would not repurchase it as there are better and cheaper options available (Pond’s ones are better).
You can give it a try if you want to check anti-aging properties otherwise give this one a skip.
