Honest reviews


works, but not pleasantly

This cleanser does take off your makeup quite well and leaves your face feeling great. BUT it’s a struggle to open the cap! It is SO tight I have to take a towel and wrap it around the top and give it a lot of strength and force it off — what a pain. It also tastes horrible should you accidentally get a tiny bit around your lips — I’ve never noticed this with other cleansers. I certainly haven’t noticed any “anit-aging” effects, but didn’t really expect to.

Not Bad

Maybe it’s just me, but I didn’t feel like foamed up very well. It’s called a foaming cleanser but I didn’t really experience much of a lather. Also I didn’t feel like my face was very clean afterwards. If I was wearing makeup I’d just use a different cleanser since it didn’t seem to get all the makeup off. I’d go to use my toner and still get residue from my makeup. This worked fine for days when I hadn’t been wearing makeup, but for some reason it just never felt like it was really getting in there and clearing out my pores. I was always having to rotate this with something else to get a good deep clean.

Never using another face wash besides this one again.

I use this when I wake up and when I go to bed. Best cleanser ever. I’m asian and have relatively large pores and it’s gotten more noticeable over the past few months. So I’ve been searching and trying face masks and stuff, but after using this for a day, it made an absolutely amazing difference. It made my skin look brighter, which I didn’t even know was a thing, like I just thought people were exaggerating when they said that. But no! They were right. And it smells nice and makes my skin feel really soft. I’m never using another face wash besides this one. Like, ever.

Olay Total Effects Revitalizing Foaming Cleanser 6.5 Fl OZ (pack of 2)

I Love this product! I use this foaming cleanser to clean my face when I take a shower. It makes my face feel so clean, and I Iove the smell!I have arthritis and find it easier to use this product in the shower. At the sink it is easier for me to use the Olay Wet Cleansing Cloths.Terry

i did NOT see a difference.

The short of it… It’s a nice smelling facial cleanser that but I don’t know that it did anything to enhance the fact that I already use the Total Effects Face Lotion.

I’m not a fan of this cleanser. For one, I thought it would foam, but I guess the “foaming” in the title is misleading. No foam. It’s a creamy cleanser. It also dries my acne-prone skin out.

Because t is great to wash your face. It leaves your face feeling clean and youngerIt stands up to its advertisement.I am 74 and my face feels young

Great, mild cleanser for sensitive skin!

I like this cleanser because it’s non-drying as many foaming cleansers tend to be…and I had to stop using multiple OTC cleansers after a few days for that reason.Even with my prone to dryness skin, I prefer the clean feeling that only comes from washing my face with water and not using cleansing milk and tonic combo, especially in the summer months with all the subblock that I put on.It didn’t cause any irritation and it’s economical too.I used to buy only department store brand, and now there is no need to do so. Thanks.

Effective and Pleasantly Scented Cleanser

If you are looking for a cleanser that cleans your face effectively, removes make-up, isn’t drying, and has a pleasant scent, you may want to try this foaming cleanser by Olay. You only need a little bit as it is concentrated. You put a squirt of it in your hands you have washed in water and make a foam to wash your face. I also put it on a wash cloth. You feel you are getting a deep cleansing and it is invigorating.I read a dermatologist’s comment that you don’t have to spend a lot of $$$ on cleansers because large companies like Olay do a lot of research and provide quality products. This has a 7 in 1 process – it does more than clean and is part of the 7 in 1 group of products which Olay makes for skin care. I feel good using this product. It doesn’t dry my skin and I feel it’s getting a quality cleansing.

Nice Foaming Cleanser!!!

Hi, I am actually Tom’s wife. He would never use a facial cleanser. LOL For one thing I like facial cleansers that foam (even though I have dry skin). It’s lightly scented & has just enough foam. It does not foam up like a dish washing liquid. After cleansing my face feels quite smooth. I purchased my 2nd tube w/a coupon. I am very loyal to a product if I am pleased with it. Amazon offers a good price for a package of 2!!
