Olay Professional Pro-X Cleansers Review

So along with needing to find a better moisturizer for my newly dehydrated skin, I have also been trying out cream cleansers hoping that they will help add some moisture.  I have always used gel or milk cleansers so this is a brave new world for me!  Olay Professional Pro-X has added a couple of new cleansers to their arsenal that I decided to try and although they are meant to be used in tandem with the Pro-X moisturizers, I went rogue as usual and used them alone!

Now I'm very easy when it comes to my cleanser expectations - I want it to clean my face but not over-clean it to a point where my skin feels tight, I want it to wash off without leaving a greasy residue behind and I want it to either smell nice or like nothing.  You would think that I would love every cleanser in existence with such seemingly low standards, but alas, most cleansers I try don't meet even that basic criteria.

Olay Professional Pro-X Exfoliating Renewal Cleanser - 177ml - $28.99 - this is one of those exfoliating cleansers that are made to be gentle enough to be used everyday.  People with sensitive skin should probably only use it 2-3 times a week though.  If you like your exfoliator to have no roughness to it at all this is a great choice, it has microbeads in it for its exfoliating action.  Frankly I like exfoliators with a little bit of grit to them so this wouldn't be my first choice but it actually did a great job cleaning so as just a regular cleanser I like it fine.

Olay Professional Pro-X Restorative Cream Cleanser - 150ml - $28.99 - this one is a definite winner!  It's PH balanced and smells good, it's nice and thick and rich feeling, a very small amount took off my foundation with no trouble and rinsed it off easily leaving just a nice soft feeling behind, no tightness!  Bonus points for coming in a pump bottle!
