As you may already know, this is an electronic cleansing brush that is similar to products like the Clarisonic, Skin-sonic, or Sigma Cleansing & Polishing Tool. What makes this particular product different is that it is much less expensive, and it is available at pretty much any drugstore. It retails for around $30 (although I was able to get mine on sale for $24) and I believe the refill brush-heads are around $11 for a 2-pack. Compare that to the Clarisonic Mia which costs $150, and has replaceable brush heads for $25/ea. Another difference between this and the Clarisonic is that the Olay System brush spins in a circular motion, while the Clarisonic brush vibrates. Although I have no method of comparison between the two, many reviews I’ve read have described the Olay as having a much more gentle brush head.

The Olay system has two settings: low and high. I’ve found that the low setting is the best for my skin, and I only use the high setting about once a week. I’ve been using this every night after removing my makeup with a makeup wipe. I usually use it along with my [amazon_link id=”B00479FTD8″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Olay Foaming Face Wash[/amazon_link], and then once a week I’ll use it with the [amazon_link id=”B002UUT38I” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Olay Professional Pro-X Exfoliating Renewal Cleanser[/amazon_link] which came with the cleansing system. I have really noticed a difference in my skin over the past few weeks. The surface of my skin is much smoother and I have less spots of discoloration, not to mention my acne has been basically non-existent. My makeup also seems to look much better and I notice that my very oily T-zone doesn’t get as oily as it used to by mid-afternoon. The only cons I would say I’ve noticed are that my skin seems to be a little dried out on my chin and around my nose, which are the areas I always get flaky skin. Of course, I do have seborrheic dermatitis, which seems to randomly flair up, so I can’t say for sure if the cause is this product or the new cleanser/toner/moisturizer I’ve been using. I am going to try going a little gentler on those areas with the Olay brush and see if that has an effect. If you do have dry skin all over your face, I would probably only use this every other day.

Overall, I would highly suggest purchasing this product. I really do think this product is comparable to the Clarisonic and a much better value considering the replaceable brush heads are so cheap.

  1. Great review. I’ve been thinking about ordering the one from Sigma. I might to check this one out as well.

    1. @Jackee The one from Sigma looks really great too! And its only a tiny but more pricey, but it looks like it comes with a case and 3 brush heads…so that might even be a better deal ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I’ve been kind of tempted to try the brush from Olay, now I know it’s worth it I think I might. I’ve always looked at the Clarisonic but I thought it would be way too expensive to splurge on ๐Ÿ˜€
