Smooth, radiant summer skin. It's what we all want, right? Recently Olay sent over two of their new releases to help with every woman's quest for stellar skin - Olay's Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System and Regenerist Night Resurfacing Elixir.
Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System is a handheld, rotating brush that promises to clean your face up to 6x better than the job you can do with your hands. The dual-speed device gently exfoliates and reaches deep into your pores and crevices to remove makeup, dirt, sweat, pureed peas and any other grime on your face from the day. The Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System includes the following:
'?¢ 2-speed facial cleansing brush
'?¢ soft bristle replaceable brush head
'?¢ 20 mL trial of Olay's Exfoliating Renewal Cleanser
I've been using this brush for the last two weeks and have definitely noticed a difference in how my face feels after I clean it. It's as effective as a wash cloth but much gentler on the skin. Now you may be familiar with a certain well-known brand that makes a similar product - one that seems to be advertising everywhere recently. Let me say that I haven't use that well-known brand before but their product retails for nearly $200 while the Olay Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System will only cost you $30 (and even less at many store like at Amazon). And in Olay's tests (granted it's their own tests), the Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System performed just as well as the $200 one.
Olay also sent over their newly-released Regenerist Night Resurfacing Elixir, an oil-free, fragrance-free formula that contains glycolic acid to gently exfoliate and resurface your skin.
I usually like to use a moisturizing cream at night and so was a little worried how my skin would feel with this gel-like formula. But I have been pleasantly surprised - the Night Resurfacing Elixir goes on easily, absorbs quickly and doesn't make my skin feel dry or tight. Plus I really like the idea of a gentle glycolic application every night as opposed to one harsh glycolic peel that leaves your skin red, irritated and peeling for days.
It's easy to spend a small fortune on skin products and granted, many are indeed worth it. But over the years I've found that Olay consistently puts out high-end products with quality ingredients for a lot less money. Look for Olay's Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System and Regenerist Night Resurfacing Elixir online or in the aisles of your local drugstore.
