Think Africa’s Review of the Prox by Olay Advanced Cleansing System
When it comes to proper skin, using the high dollar skin care products isn’t going to cut it. You need to be doing a bit more than simply apply some high-end products that proved already their efficiency out there.
One of the things you need to do for your skin is having it well cleansed and prepared for the powerful skin care products. You can do it simply with your hands with some water, or you can upgrade your skin care routine and start using a deep cleansing kit that comes with a face cleansing brush. And if you add some motorized power to the face cleansing brush, you start to understand why this little tool does a better job than your hands.
What’s special about Prox by Olay Advanced Cleansing System?
Managing to satisfy the needs of so many out there (this is, by far, the most common choice when it comes to face cleansing brushes), the cleansing system by Olay checks most boxes when it comes to performance, quality and build.
Coming with different replacement brush heads, but also with exfoliating cleansers, the advanced cleansing system comes for a fair price. It’s not the best option for a tight budget, but it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg either.
The system is dermatologically designed with formulas that address the main cause of skin aging. The face cleansing brush exfoliates and cleanses smoothly your skin, leaving it fresher and rejuvenated.
What are its features?
The advanced cleansing system by Olay comes with brush head, 2 replacement brush heads and 2 exfoliating cleanser.
The face cleansing brush has a 2 speed mode so you can have your pick according to your daily needs. The brush is able to remove makeup, dirt and oil and the rotating movement is gentle, yet efficient.
The Exfoliating Renewal cleanser is fragrance-free and offers a delicate exfoliation for your skin. You should include it in your daily skin care routine if only to slow down the aging of skin. Made with gentle exfoliators
How to use it?
You should start by pressing system head onto connection pin until it clicks into its place. Use some water to dampen both your face and brush head. Continue by applying a thin layer of the Olay Exfoliating Renewal Cleanser to your face.
Now it’s time to turn on the brush handle and slowly massage it on your face for 60 seconds or so. Try to stay away from the eye area.
You’re going to notice how it creates a rich lather, exfoliating surface skin cells and the makeup residue that doesn’t go away easily. You should use the speed that fits the best most part of your face. The brush uses rotating movements and has just the right power: not too soft, but not too strong either.
When you’re done with cleansing, don’t forget to rinse both your face and brush head with some water.
You can complete the rejuvenating process of your skin with the Prox by Olay moisturizer.
The system should be included in your daily skin care routine, no matter your skin type.
The unit has a good build and feels nice in hands. It has a good grip and doesn’t slip away. It’s water resistant and you can safely use it in the shower.
In order to extend its life span, keep in mind to replace the brush heads every three months when they’re worn enough.
Is its build ok?
The unit is well-made and has a durability feel to it. The design is well thought out, ensuring comfortable and easy use. Switching between the speed modes or changing the brush heads isn’t tricky at all, and it’s quite intuitive.
It’s a battery unit but the brush holds its charge pretty well, so you’re not going to need to change the batteries any time soon.
Water resistant, the face cleansing brush is safe to use in the shower and takes the use for a long time.
What are the ups and downs?
