Olay Professional Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System

Today I will be reviewing Olay Pro X Advanced System. I received it in July, 2014 from Facebook store Amor but, because of my health issue I was away from blogging therefore, I am very late in reviewing it. But it is said ' better late than never'.
To be very honest I have been longing for a Clarisonic from the time I started blogging but the only factor which prohibited me from owning it was the price tag.When I read about Olay Pro X advanced cleansing system I purchased it right away. I did not even hesitate and believe me it was the best decision to own this baby. Lets move to a detailed review.


Product Description

The 2-speed rotating facial cleansing brush massages the ProX by Olay Exfoliating Renewal Cleanser on your skin, a lathering micro-bead formula that thoroughly cleans as it gently exfoliates. Just rub it onto your skin and let the power of the Facial Cleansing Brush go to work. Each rotation gently clears away makeup, oil and dirt, leaving your face clean, exfoliated and primed for hydration. In fact, the ProX by Olay Advanced Cleansing System is designed to maximize the immediate hydrating effectiveness of your anti-aging moisturizer. With 2 speeds, you control how it treats your skin. Plus, it's water resistant, making it perfect for use in the shower. Your skin will feel smooth, refreshed, and refined.


How to use

Dampen facial skin and brush-head lightly with water. Dispense Pro-X Exfoliating Renewal Cleanser in your hand and massage over face. Turn on cleansing brush and gently move around the face for approximately 60 seconds. Avoid the eye area. Rinse face and brush head with water.


 My thoughts and experience

The package comes with the cleansing system, a brush head, 2 AA batteries and an exfoliating cleanser. The cleansing system runs on two AA batteries which are included in the box and when you attach the brush-head to the system, the brush rotates in circular motion to remove oil and dirt. On the cleansing system, there are two buttons, the larger on top toggles to power the unit on and off and the smaller bottom one controls its speed - low or high. I use it on high speed as slow one is too slow for me. You can set the speed according to your choice. I have never used it with the exfoliating cleanser which comes with it. I have not read good reviews about it. I checked it with different face-washes but at the end I settled on Pond's face wash as it lathers well. During summers you can  even use it daily but for winters twice a week is enough. To be very honest it makes the face clean but it is not an extra miracle product if you have stubborn white and blackheads. For that purpose it is very important to do deep cleansing once or twice a week or you can call it a mini facial too. You can easily do it at home. For that you need a good cleansing milk, massage it gently all over face for about ten to fifteen minutes. After that, it is much much better to use freeman charcoal mask which works both as a scrub and a mask. I have reviewed in it detail here. At the end you can wash your face with pond's face-wash or any-other of your choice with the help of Olay  Pro X.


My skin always glows after every use and  feels so clean without making my face red or dry. I have extra sensitive skin but the bristles are really soft which never ever caused any problem for my skin. If you have dry skin then I don't think so you will like the bristles much. The condition of my face has improved drastically and I love, love and love it. Bristles are really soft so the brush-head needs special care otherwise bristles will start to fan out around the edges. One more thing please never ever share your brush-head with anyone, not even with your sister.


How to clean Olay Pro X brush-head

It is very important to rinse your brush-head thoroughly after every use. It is advisable to change brush-head after every three months but in my opinion it depends on the usage too. If you clean your brush-head properly then it can survive a bit longer. Well, in my case after rinsing it thoroughly I let the brush-head air-dry on a tissue paper. You can even use towel.


Pros
Pocket friendly
Minimizes size of pores
Bristles are perfect for the ones with sensitive and acne prone skin
Makes the skin soft and glowing
Very easy to operate

Cons
Not easily available in Pakistan
Bristles are not perfect for dry skinned beauties
Bristles are really soft so they need special care


Availability
 I purchased this from face-book store Amor . By the way prices have increased. I purchased it in 3200 Pkr and now different pages are selling this in 3500-4500 Pkr.

Recommendation 
A biggggg YES. By the way I haven't tried clarisonic so , I can't do the comparison. It is a much cheaper option so give it a try before purchasing clarisonic.

My Rating
4.7/5

Thank you for your time.

Stay Blessed :)
