Most Helpful Positive Review LOOKS ARE DECEIVING!
When I first used this product I did not know what to expect because it did not feel abrasive enough to the finger touch, but I had confidence in my 20+ yr relationship with Olay. :)
Once I began scrubbing my face began to feel like it was being pricked by little needles that shot tingling sensation throughout. When I rinsed, I could not believe how my skin looked! It looked like it had taken every dead cell off! It was vibrant and looked better than I felt! I looked like morning sunshine!
My skin was ready to 'face' the day, but I physically had not awakened yet!
Most Helpful Critical Review Highly fragranced!
I really could not stand using this product. I couldn't get pass the intense floral smell. If you can get pass the smell then this product actually isn't too bad. But for me I had to stop using it based on the smell. If they made this fragrance free it would be a good scrub.

I'm 23 and realize that you need to start using anti-aging products in your 20's. I figured I'd give this cleanser a try because of the price point and good reviews. I've used this I'd say MAX 4 times, and my entire face is broken out and I have clogged pores everywhere. I achieved clear skin before using this, so this is the only thing that's new in my routine. I've come to the conclusion that I have the "use anything but water and I'll break out" skin type. I'm disappointed because I really wanted to like this. This has fragrance and multiple alcohols in it. Sensitive skin users, stay far away.
Surprised by the exfoliant
Jeni Z from New England
I had no idea this would be an exfoliant when I bought it. Nowhere on the front of the label does it mention this feature. I love all Olay products and thought I was buying a nice, soft cream daily face wash with a little anti-aging magic in it. My sensitive skin was alarmed by the silica. Yes, it looked and felt softer after washing, but I definitely can't use this on a twice daily or even daily basis. So, if you have sensitive skin, be advised that, while it's fine as an occasional exfoliant, it won't work as your daily face wash.
Does NOT contain plastic microbeads, but...
Jeni Z from New England
I actually came here trying to figure out if there were in fact plastic microbeads in this. Upon further investigation, I found that those were banned a few years ago and what Olay (and others) are using now is hydrated silica, which is basically a natural mineral crushed into powder. So, environmental catastrophe averted.

I am not sure why I stopped using this a few years ago, but recently started again about a month ago - my skin has consistently looked flawless, smooth and evenly toned. Even clears up the occasional adult blemish in NO time. Am sticking with this as long as it's made. Thanks, Olay!!!
Too much exfoliation for daily use
Eruff210 from Milford, Ct
I have been using this for 3 weeks or so and I feel that it would be better if it didn't have exfoliaters for every day twice a day use. I notice that my nose is much oilier because it's being exfoliated too much. I have had to stop using it on and around my nose and use something else on that area. I will not purchase again once it is gone and I cannot return it because I misplaced my receipt
Gummy bear from Pensacola
So I've been trying out new cleansers and I decided to try this out and honestly the only good thing I can say is that it made my skin soft but other then that it left makeup behind. Not to mention it has micro plastics. Micro plastics are damaging to our environment, beauty products should just phase them out especially if the product isn't even doing what it's intended to do.
COMPLIMENTS Keep Coming
Kathy/ from NY
I did not receive this product for free, but since it works so well I really should receive one. I have tried many cleansers but this one is GREAT! I wash my face every morning and night and it feels clean, silky and bright. After washing, I look like a whole new refreshed person. Someone in work complimented me and cannot believe how refreshed I look every, even if I didn't feel like it. DEFINITELY, it is a must to be purchased!
I would buy again
Aliaza from VA
Really liked it
I buy only
Lisa from OK
Good face wash
Ann from Georgia
I thought this was a cleanser/make up remover but it doesn't remove your make up! If that's what you're looking for I would not buy. It leaves your face soft but I use it on a clean face!
Cleans and moisturizes

I use this cleanser twice daily and it leaves my skin soft.
Toxic product full of microplastics
LA Mom from Los Angeles
Such a disappointment! I was looking for a face wash that doesn't have microplastics, the little scrubbing beads, that are totally toxic for our environment. They wash down the drain and into the oceans where the fish eat them and fill up their bodies. The same fish we eat, meaning all these microplastics that don't break down end up in our bodies. The label doesn't mention these microplastics so I was super disappointed when I felt them the first time using it. Olay, you should do better! Use ground up apricot, peach or plum pits. They're natural and break down. Win win for everyone! As a multi billion conglomerate, we know you can make it happen.
Beelow516 from New York NY
I decided to purchase this on a whim and I'm completely addicted to it. After the first wash my face was noticeably more hydrated which never happens after washing face. It feels like I have a light lotion on skin. I will purchase no other item this is now my go to face wash. Skin looks brighter, surely smoother and moisturized.

Mild exfoliation but very moisturizing
Works great for my sensitive skin!
MistyAmbyr87 from Jacksonville, FL
I have extremely sensitive skin to the point where I was only washing my face with water and used Zero moisturizer because I have tried every cleanser even the ones claiming to be for sensitive skin and the next day or even within hours my face would be broken out with pimples. I came across this face cream other day along with the resculpting moisturizer and thought why not.. Im happy to say i'm on day 2 and clear skin, even my pores are less visible. I know its only been 2 days but for me thats a win! P.S I tried to upload a selfie but it kept filtering and filtering so you'll just have to take my word for it ; )
I Love This Cleanser!
tony14 from Pa
I have been using this cleanser for years and I love it. It doesn't dry my skin. My skin feels soft and clean. And people say I look younger than my age. I think this cleanser is definitely part of why.
Great for all ages!
Court567 from undisclosed
I am a 20yr old female and have been using this since I was 15. One day my mom bought this for me by accident (idk how), and I used it before going to bed and when I woke up all my pimples were gone! This makes my skin nice and gooey and if I have a breakout it clears it up overnight. I never would've thought that an anti-aging face wash could clear up my hormonal acne.
Wonderful for Aging Skin!
corrisc from Palm Coast FL
Regenerist | Regenerating Face Cleanser Is a great product. I've used Olay products every so often most of my life but sadly I mostly started a routine and then forgot to do it. I'm now 74 and I've been blessed with nice facial skin except for the few wrinkles that I'm getting now and a few age spots. This cleanser is wonderful. It doesn't irritate thinning skin and cleanses gently and thoroughly. I am hooked. I bought a bunch of Olay products about a month ago and promised myself I would stick with a routine every day so that I would keep my beautiful skin as I continue to age. Olay will make sure that happens! Thank you, Olay!
Best used in shower but bottle lable runs
Tracey P. from Gilroy Ca
Ive been using this every time i take a shower and never had breakouts or bumpy skin until i stopped using it. I didnt realize how much i needed it to revitalize my skin. Now im hooked. Only downer is the bottle doesnt last as long as i hoped and the red packaging lable peels off in little slimy shimmering peices. ugh... Maybe because i use in the shower. But very happy with product. Im ordering 2 more today!
Love this face wash!!
JILLYBEAR from Palm City, Fl
I started using this 1 month ago and I love it!!! Never write a review, but try it!! Not pricey either!!!
Amazing product with fast results
WhitneyA from Orlando Florida
I bought this because my face is very oily and some dark spots. The minute I started using this product I feel my skin so soft and smooth and it feels so clean. I would recommend it to everyone that may have the same skin type I have.
Better than expected for the price
Mirfaye from Birmingham, AL
The texture of my skin has definitely improved since I started using this product. I've been applying it in the shower for the past two months and it leaves my skin feeling clean and smooth. My main reason for purchasing this was to reduce the appearance of fine lines on my forehead, and although the product hasn't totally removed the lines they seem to be disappearing with time. I'm only 22 so I'm not sure if this would work on someone with deeper wrinkles, but I'd say it's good for the price.
Catso from Romulus NY
I like Olay's foaming facial cleansers better this just doesn't get soapy
Paint peels off the tube
Mammaw from Alexandria, Louisiana
Like the product. Don't like the packaging. The paint peels off in your hand when squeezing it out onto your other hand. Annoying. I don't recall it previous ones peeling like this.
LOVE ...but get better packing!
JAK14 from St. Louis, MO
My go to cleanser! But seriously get better packaging. I end up with half the stuff on my hands and face when I squeeze the tub. But I LOVE the cleanser!
