Honest reviews


cleans my face with out being overly drying

I have been using this product about twice a day now for a few weeks. It does a good job washing off my eyeliner, mascara and concealer with out making my face to tight and dry. It has a light floral-apple smell and just the right amount of exfoliating beads. Gets the job done. I pair it with pr o activ toner and pr o activ drying lotion. As a side note it really annoys me when Amazon or Amazon sellers edit out other brands mentioned in reviews. They should stop that practice right away.

Love the Smell!

I got this product originally because I needed facial wash and I thought it was a bonus because of the pore-minimizing aspect. I’ve been using this product for about 1 /12 – 2 weeks and I haven’t noticed a difference in size of my pores.Oh well, not that disappointed.I absolutely LOVE the smell of the wash. It smells so good and clean! I will definitely be purchasing this again!

Love this product

I love this product so much that I never stop using it, since I started using it. This is the only product that I use as a face cleanser, scrub. I love how Olay has packaged this product. It has some kind of spring inside it. As I use it the bottom plate or whatever comes up and that way I don’t waste any of this product. It did what its suppose to do. It did minimize my large pores. It doesn’t overdry my skin (oh yeah I have combination skin) and most of all no more breakeouts for me. It is cheaper on Amazon and sometime they have coupons and then it is even cheaper. I get two jars in price of one (is it a jar or a bottle? can’t tell it’s a combination of both I guess). I love it. Will recommend it.

Very good cleansner

My wife uses this product and the price had here on Amazon is great using Subscribe and Save. She enjoys this product as it is gentle on her skin yet cleans very well. She follows up using regular classic Olay and I can attest her skin as baby smooth and soft. Give it a try and I think you’ll be as pleased with it as much as she is.

Makes my skin so soft

I’ve almost always had oily/combination skin and I am very acne prone. I also bought this on the recommendation of a beauty guru online. I have been using it for a month and my skin is under control for the first time since I became a teenager. It does a great job of removing dirt and makeup and my skin now feels so smooth and touchable. Even my boyfriend noticed and in 7 years he never commented on the texture of my skin.

Wonderful gentle cleanser

I must admit, I had no expectations regarding this product. I bought it because there was a P&G; coupon here on Amazon. I must say I was pleasantly surprised!The product is a series of green and white layers, which mix when dispensed. The result is a heavy cleaner with just enough abrasive power to clean without harming your face. The dispenser is a great pump that has a wide base and large pump head, so it can be operated one handed.It rinses very easily, leaving your face feeling really clean and refreshed. The smell is clean but not overwhelming, so if you have issues with perfumed products, this should be okay. Note that this product is only 5 ounces, so take that into account when doing a cost comparison.I usually buy only Neutrogena products; however, the way my face feels after using this, Olay cleaners will be added to my regimen, especially this one. It is a keeper.

Good product, icky smell

This is a good scrub at a good price. The problem is the perfume smell is overpowering and sickening. I would not buy again because of the strong scent. I like the Philosophy scrub a lot better – it’s more money but lasts longer and doesn’t smell.

A good and expensive exfoliator

Part of good skin care is exfoliation, removing the layer of dead skin cells to increase cell replacement. The new cells look, well, newer (lol) and better as well. If you’re already using an exfoliator and you like it stick with it, but if you are looking for something easy to use, this is for you. Morning and night you wet your skin, rub ‘Pore Minimizing Cleanser in’ and apply it in small circles. It has exfoliating grit of some sort in it which clearly would help remove dead skin. Easy to use, fits into a normal skin care regimen and inexpensive as well.

Worth every penny and this is my #1 Olay favorite product period.

This scrub is really above the quality so far your surprise is not only unexpected but it isn’t a reaction you would dream coming from anything that costs under $12.00. It exfoliates, cleanses and does really minimize your pores which believe it or not; most product that are “pore minimizing,” don’t minimize at all. This one does! They took this off the shelves for a year about a year and a half ago and I was not happy! I am so glad they brought it back! Can’t say enough good things about it. The pump dispenses the cleanser in a way that shows you how much you have left and doesn’t go fast which happens a lot with the clear dispensing products.Smells great, feels great, no residue.

like this

I was very happy to see this offered on Amazon. I originally bought it a Costco over a year ago, and really liked it, but no longer at Costco, so looking for it and then saw here – so very happy to be using again. It is a light scrub, very small yet effective granules in it.

Perfect Cleanser

I have been using this product about a year ago, I really do love it, every morning I use this product. The little beads are like fine sand grains and its gentle on your face. It cleans your face and minimizes the pores, after using it u will definitely feel clean and fresh. Try it.

Karin Elkins, WV

Love it!!

This product is great if you are trying to reduce your pores. It has a crisp clean smell, it lathers up so nice and my face feels amazing after use. I saw almost instant results and would recommend it to anyone trying to reduce the appearance of their pores or just a great clean feeling.

Use with my clarisonic

I use this with my clarisonic. I really like this product and think that it works better with the scrubber than without and I use a lot less.
