Hope all you beauties are having a good day. Today I am reviewing the ‘Olay Pore Minimizing Cleanser+Scrub’.With our outgoing routine in check, we girls are bound to deposit a lot of dust and pollution on our skin, leaving it lifeless and dull. To combat this misery I decided to purchase a good exfoliant. I stumbled upon the Olay pore minimizing cleanser + scrub. I have been eyeing this product for some time now and finally decided to pick it up. Olay face washes are a little difficult to find in your everyday stores but you can be rest assured to find them at some good drug store near you.
• The Olay pore minimizing cleansing + scrub comes in a transparent yet graphic cylindrical dispenser
• It has a very strong pump, which I love.
• The product consists of a vacuum pumping system so as to minimize product wastage at the end of the bottle.
• The product consists of a locking cap to keep the scrub from drying out and avoiding unnecessary dirt clogging.
• In all, the casing is very sturdy and stylish to look at with neat, clean, easy to use mechanism.
• The cleanser + scrub comprise of two colors – blue and white.
My take on Olay Pore Minimizing Cleanser + Scrub:
As I stated earlier, I absolutely love the packaging of the product, it exudes a very good first impression. The packaging ensures no wastage of the product, clean usage and a cap to ensure the product remains clean. Now, coming down to the main property of this product, as you pump out a generous amount of the face wash onto the palm of your hands, the base moves upwards against gravity due to its vacuum action. The first negative trait I found out with this product was its consistency. It is very runny, probably the least likable property I find in a face wash. I prefer my face wash to have a think consistency because it is easier to handle/contain.
The product has a light fragrance which imparts a delicate feature to it. Moving on, the product contains microbeads which do not rub against the skin harshly even if you have a heavy hand. After having a quick wash, the product leaves your face oil free without over exfoliating the skin and stripping it dry. The skin feels supple and clean. I feel that after using Olay my face stays oil free for a longer period of time than it usually would even though I do not have a very oily skin. I am not sure how well will it work on a very oily skin but the end result of this product does not let you down that is for sure.
Price: 800 for 150 ml
