Let me just say this first: This is the BEST beauty tool I have ever bought, and here is why.
I had heard so many raving reviews about the Clarisonic Mia and the Clarisonic Pro that I desperately wanted to try them. The problem was that they are over one-hundred dollars! I don’t have that kind of money; I am an Air Force wife.
I have always had combination skin, the oily parts being overly oily and the dry parts being extremely dry and flaky. I was currently using a very harsh exfoliating glove to clean my face with in an effort to remove the flaky skin every day – and this still wasn’t working very well. I was even using a medicated lotion from Eucrine to help the dryness. On top of that, I had spent the last year in New Mexico, the capital o f dry air. I needed something to help me.
Using the Olay Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System for five weeks now……
I have now been using the Olay Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System for five weeks, and my skin looks and feels better than it ever has. After three uses I saw once again a noticeable change in the texture and even the color of my skin. It was much brighter now that all of the old skin had been removed. For the first week or so I broke out a tiny bit, which I normally don’t do. However, I think it was just my skin getting used to it because it went away and has not come back. My skin is even less oily now than it used to be.
My one negative thing to say…..
The one thing I have negative to say about it is the exfoliating cream. I liked it just fine, but it is quite expensive. My store did not sell it either, so I looked to buy it online and saw that it was sixteen dollars for just 6 ounces and decided to look elsewhere. I have previously used St. Ives Apricot Scrub and at four dollars for the same amount that sounded much better. I took it home and gave it a shot…I was shocked but I actually think my skin feels softer and smoother using the St. Ives Apricot Scrub than the Olay scrub. So, there you have it. Expensive does not always mean better. With this scrub vs. the Olay one, I can go three days without having to use the Olay Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System. St. Ives even sells a blemish fighting one if that is the reason you are buying the system.
So there you have it. If you don’t have a hundred dollars but want great looking skin, this is the tool for you. Really, even if you have the hundred dollars buy the Olay Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System and take the rest of the money and buy a new outfit to compliment your newly fantastic looking skin!
