Olay Regenerist Advanced Cleansing System

After a whole lot of time delaying, I finally have to say something about the Olay Regenerist Advanced Cleansing System Specialty Cleanser which I got last November 2013.

The set consists of:

Olay Regenerist Skin Renewal Cleanser (20ml)
I already talked about this cleanser in some of my posts (here and here) and I still have the same sentiment about it: I like the idea of a cleanser with beads on it that acts as a scrub but hate that it smells like plastic and the fact that it irritates my skin.  Also this type of cleanser in my opinion doesn't go well with the cleansing device because of the beads...I think it's too much exfoliation and I can definitely feel the scrubs hurting my face.

Brush Head
This brush head is soft especially on the first month of use and the size is just enough for my face and that I can use it on the sides of my nose without any trouble.  The only problem is I don't think the bristles are gentle enough to be used on a daily basis because when I did use the device on a daily basis for a whole week, I can feel that my skin became sensitive so I'm hoping that Olay will release or offer a much more softer brush head like in toothbrushes wherein there's an extra soft option.  I'm already on my 4th month in using the brush head and it still looks good, I just cut some of the bristles that sticks out.  Also, storing it upside down will help in keeping the green grime/stuff? at bay (I don't know what to call it but it's the green that looks like algae that inbibits wet/mushy things).

Duracell AA Battery
Fantastic batteries!  It's still working after more or less 4 months.

2-Speed Control and Water Resistant Facial Cleansing Device
It just have the right size that I don't have problem gripping it.  Also, it's water resistant so I don't have to worry if I splash a bit of water on it but I never use this when I'm showering because I don't want to risk.  It has to 2 speed and most of the time I just use the "slower" speed because the "faster" one is just too much for my sensitive skin.  Anyway, the motion is just like it's massaging my face.

Using this cleansing device definitely made a difference in my cleansing regimen.  I can definitely feel that my face is a lot cleaner and my whiteheads lesser so my face is a bit smoother.  Also, the absorption of the face products that I use is faster than before   Using it on a daily basis made my skin sensitive though so I only used it twice or thrice a week so I'm really hoping that Olay would release a softer brush head for people like me who have sensitive skin.

If you're going to ask me if this can remove make-up, will I think it still depends on the cleanser that you use.  I use cleansing oil first to remove my make-up then follow up with this cleansing device with a gentle cleanser so I really can't tell if using it alone can remove make-up.

Thanks for reading. Till then. Bye! 


  1. PS : i thought that "in motion pic: of the cleanser is quite cool :D ive been debating if i should get this, or the clarisonic, or just skip both products nalang cause they are expensive. it sounds very similar to clarisonic tho, i heard that it also isnt something you can use daily :)

    1. this one is much cheaper than clarisonic, if undecided I guess you should try konjac sponges...they clean well and can be use on a daily basis

  2. I love cleansers with beads on them, but most of them will be too harsh! I've been wanting to try one of those devices but the ones I've seen so far have, just like you said, a bit of harsh bristles and it scares me a little... Even if they were softer I would still be scared to use it on a daily basis.
    But now I really want to try one of these because you saw results and many people do seem to approve these devices. Just need to find the right one, tough here they are hard to find.
    Very informative review!
    The bunny was very yummy and grandmother liked the packaging so it wasn't too bad.

    I'm truly sorry about my late reply and take care! Kisses!


    1. it's okay hehehehe...konjac sponges works well too...it cleans almost like these devices and it can be use on a daily basis


Share that amazing thought!
