Review of "Oil of Olay Daily Facials"
Now Olay seem to justify the expense by asserting that a simple cloth can eradicate several elements of your daily cleansing routine. Namely, your make up remover, soap, facewash, cleansing milk and toner. One instead of five steps which is great after a night out.It also claims to improve your skin's condition which is always a difficult thing to test - is my skin better - well I'm getting older each day and the sun takes its toll so who knows if its the face wipes that keep me so magnificent? (Ha,ha, ha).
Each cloth is folded in the box and easy to get out without bringing the rest with you. It is textured with a rough side and a smooth side. It contains a cleanser and a moisturiser and it is soap free.The instructions are simple:
1. Take a cloth and moisten it - warm/cold water doesn't seem to matter to the lather factor.
2.Lather - from this bald instruction I have found rubbing the cloth together and scrunching it a bit releases the froth3.Cleanse - now for the tricky bit - use the smooth side on delicate areas and the textured side on the warty - sorry bits neading deep cleansing.
4. Rinse using the cloth - this takes a few goes to dispel all the lather.5. Throw the cloth away.
Yes we truly are a disposable world and I'm sure this is doing nothing for the environment. It does have the biodegradable symbol on the packaging - so 500 years from now thsy might turn to mush.
You are advised not to flush them down the toilet - now come on, is there anyone that would? Don't answer that.I bought the Normal to Oily skin facials but they also come in Normal to Dry. Tough really if you have combination skin.
The ingredients are as scary as ever:
PEG-100, SUCROSE POLYCOTTENSEEDATE, COCAMIDOPROPYL BETAINE, C10-30 CHOLESTEROL/LANOSTEROL ESTERS, WATER, BETA CYCLODEXTRIN, DECYL GLUCOSIDE, SUCROSE POLYBEHENATE, PETROLATUM, BUTYLENE GLYCOL, SODIUM LAURYL SARCOSINATE, TRIBEHENIN, PEG-14M, ALCOHOL DENAT.,TOCOPHEROL, TOCOPHEROL ACETATE, MENTHOL (couldn't smell it), POLYQUATERNIUM-10, BHT, GLYOXAL. SODIUM ACETATE, SODIUM LAURATE, SODIUM SULFATE, PHENOXYETHANOL, METHYL PARABEN, PROPYL PARABEN, DISODIUM EDTA, BENZYL ALCOHOL, PARFUM.
I visited the Olay website on www.olay.com and Olay.co.uk. It was quite easy to use and if you register for the Olay Club you get samples and probably junk mail too (sorry bit cynical). There is a product search facility which is quite helpful and a section on diagnosing your skin condition - this isn't all that great as the windows have no scroll buttons and are difficult to read.Overall I would recommend these facial wipes when you really cannot be arsed to clean your face at night. Otherwise they are quite an expensive and wasteful idea.
