Product Revival & Review – Olay Daily Facials Clarify Scrub

Whilst cleaning out the press under my bathroom sink last week I found a tonne of unloved products. At the very back I found Olay Daily Facials Clarity Daily Scrub.

I bought this last year used it a handful of times and moved on, the usual story. In the interest of clearing out the press I decided to use it up.

I have been using it for nine days now and I have to admit, I like it.

It contains tiny little beads, so tiny and so few that I’m not sure how exfoliating this product is. This doesn’t bother me since I have been using it as a cleanser morning and evening. I follow with Liz Earl toner and Origins Mega Mushroom Serum (video review coming soon on this one!).

My skin has been quite sensitive lately so I was expecting a little irritation. Not so. My skin feels soft. I actually look forward to using it before bed.

The only thing that puts me off is the colour, it’s blue!

The scrub contains green tea, aloe vera and salicylic acid which makes this a good option for those of use who suffer from spots.

As much as I’m enjoying using the wash I’m not sure if I would repurchase. We’ll see! It costs around £4.50 / €6 for 150ml’s.

What are your thoughts on Olay products? Are there any that you recommend?

    I really like olay products. I used to borrow my nana’s oil of ulay when I was a little girl :) Still addicted!

    I love the total effects wake up wander moisturiser! Bought it a fornight-3 weeks ago and used it every day, sometimes twice a day! Makes my skin super soft and I have noticed a difference in texture and overall look of my skin when applying foundation. Its main purpose is for anti-ageing I think but I’m 19 and its great for my combination skin. Its good when you get compliments too :) I do agree that Olay can be expensive, but a little goes a long way (previously used the original pink moisturiser in big bottle and clarifying milk, both lasted agggeees.) And I find its nearly always on offer, if not in Boots, it will be in Superdrug.

    I absolutely love olay products. I buy them when they’re on 3 for 2 in boots x

    I agree Amarya. Their anti ageing products are quite steep too. Probably best to buy when it’s on special

    Thanks for the review Amy, I wondered if my skin would be too sensitive for it!

      I would be cautious if I had very sensitive skin. Mine is more normal but it’s sensitive at the moment.

    I love this stuff! Must be on my 8th tube :)

    Olay products are of a high quality and most are very effective. The only problem with their products are, as you mentioned, the price. They are expensive and you can by similar products for less.
