How I Got Good Skin #2: Olay Regenerist Skin Perfecting Cleanser - Review

How I Got Good Skin is a series of five posts on the blog where I'll share the products and habits that have helped me get my skin looking the best it's ever looked. I'm confident when I use the phrase "good skin", since I have suffered with severe acne in the past (even going on Accutane twice) and can definitely appreciate the state of my skin at the moment!

After getting into a bit of a panic about the state of my skin, I knew I had to shake up my skincare regime ASAP. On my emergency trip to Boots, alongside the La Roche Posay face wash, I also picked up this Olay Regenerist Skin Perfecting Cleanser. I had read a review on it a long time ago  on a Braziliand beauty blog and thought it sounded good because of the Salicylic Acid in the formula. It turns out, that's not actually listed in the ingredients (don't I feel silly!), but this is still, nonetheless, a little wonder of a product!

I'd never tried anything from Olay before, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect. This cleanser has a gel texture and it contains micro foaming beads, which help lightly exfoliate the skin. I like that it doesn't foam up too much (which should hopefully mean I won't get told off by Caroline Hirons for using it!), but it still gives my skin a squeaky clean feeling without making it feel tight or dry at all! I also can't believe how much this has improved the texture of my skin. I like to use it in the mornings, as it feels very refreshing on the skin and I feel like it helps the following products on my regime sink in better on my skin.

If you've got normal to oily skin, I definitely recommend picking this up. And, if you don't like it, no harm's been really done: it costs just under a fiver from Boots AND it's always on offer!

Have you tried anything from Olay? xx
