Hey ladies and Sanjeev ji, hope your weekend was lazy and fun! We all shop on an impulse a lot of times and luckily most of the times the product turns out great or at least you can use it. But sometimes some products are so hopeless that even by looking at them you feel regret and anger :((

My take on this product
The most hopeless-est product I’ve ever used. I got the bulk 6-pack thinking that these are the moist make-up removing tissues or cloths. If I had to lather- I have gazillion types of face washes right? I used it in the shower a couple of times but the bulk pack has no way to secure once opened – you know like those stick-to-retain-freshness types – well, this doesn’t have anything like that and the plastic is so flimsy that it got torn and after a few days -even though I’ve packed them in a ziploc bag- now it does not lather. the cloths have remained with me like glorified gauze-type hankies. So now I keep them in the freezer and use them to keep on my eyes for my dark circles… I am feeling so angry even as I am writing about it… grrrrr
All I wanted was a nice wet tissue like wipes. and only because I was in a hurry (AND impulsive) I ended up getting this thing – and that too in bulk… hehehe
Actually, it does remove make-up and mascara but unlike cleansers and face-washes does not go deep in the skin to clean. It’s just as you’ve put facewash on a handtowel and wiping your face with it.
And yeah- all this when the soap wala property is intact- once exposed – now they are just plain towelettes 🙁
Let me summarise it:
see the pathetic lather? LUX soap would work better 🙁
PROS of Olay Daily Facials Hydrating Cleansing Cloths
– Good for travelling : specially airlines or picnics or if you are in some village.
– If it lathers: it foams well and gives you a fresh feeling
– does not dry you out
– and now that it does not lather: acts as a good cold compress for eyes and face. and even bruises.
CONS of Olay Daily Facials Hydrating Cleansing Cloths
– Loses its soapy lathering way too soon.
– like I said: it has now become a “glorified hanky”
I still use it sometimes to remove any excess makeup that my olive oil cant remove but all in all m totally dissapointed.
Will I repurchase it? HELL NO!!!
and the next time I go to get anything like this Im going to make sure I check out a sample first. :(( So tell me girls, what’s the worst product in your vanity????
Will I recommend it to anyone? not even to my worst enemies!
Rating: 2 stars- as its a good compress for my eyes..
