Olay Refreshing Facial Cleansing Gel

What is it?

As mentioned before in my previous blog- Olay are one of the most leading skincare companies that focus on mature skin; ideally for women in their 30s and onwards. Apart from using their toner I had no high hopes for this cleanser! (oh boy was I wrong).


The result? Your skin feels fresh, clean and reveals its natural radiance. Olay is about beauty, inside and out. Try this refreshing facial cleansing gel for a fresh start to your skin care routine

Beautiful skin starts with the right facial cleanser! Olay Refreshing Facial Cleansing Gel cleanses, purifies and invigorates for a fresh skin feeling. Nothing says refreshment like a deep-down-to-the-pores clean. This skin cleanser lifts away dirt and make-up.


  • Sodium Lauroamphoacetate: Mild cleansing agent.
  • PEG-200 Hydrogenated Glyceryl Palmate: Thickeners, softeners and moisture-carriers.
  • Glycerin: Humectant.
  • Sorbitol: To prevent moisture loss.
  • Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate: Is a gentle non- irritate cleansing agent which helps the product to foam without drying the skin.
  • Sodium Trideceth Sulfate: Contains conditioning properties.

What I liked about it?

The face-wash actually worked really well on my skin, this is ideal for oily-combination skin (which is a thumbs up from me). This product can be used on wet or dry skin; both have the same desired results. While using this product my skin did not feel dry – leaving my skin to feel refreshed and clean. I also noticed that it was brilliant at removing stubborn makeup without leaving any residue. Additionally, I did not breakout while using this product.

What I didn’t like about the product?

Although I didn’t like the branding aspect of this product! As the packaging looks dated however, they is a “newly formulated” product in a pink packaging which has the exact same ingredients as the old packaging but for a higher price!

Would I purchase this product again?

Yes I would go and buy this again! as it’s reasonably priced and it works well for my skin!
