Olay Daily Facial in a Box is a dry cleansing cloth that is activated with water to remove makeup and cleanse the skin. I was very sceptical when I first came across this product when I was browsing Amazon (as I do) one late night (that pesky you may be interested in tab!). Anyway after watching a few (a lot) of YT videos I decided purchase one box to test out
Olay Daily Facial in a Box is a water-activated cloth with Vit E, grape seed extract and Olay moisture. It also provides some exfoliation action. It promises to remove makeup and cleanse the face, to leave it hydrated and refreshed whilst tightening pores
I have had these for a while down and I think I am down to my last 3 or 4. I use these for travel or at home as part of my quick & easy cleansing routine. I have tested these out both for makeup removal and a cleanser.
The dry cloth is activated by water and easily provides a rich lather which I was pleasantly surprised by. To remove makeup/cleanse, I simply use the cloth in circular motions all over my face, neck and chest, rinse and repeat till the cloth is no longer brown. Depending on how much makeup I am wearing, I would probably use 3 or 4 to do this. The scent is subtle but lovely and the cloth feels gentle on the skin. The water activated clothes are excellent for taking of foundation, mascara and even some liquid lipsticks. There is a small amount of residue left even after 4 clothes so I always use one final cloth as a face wash to complete the routine. My skin doesn’t feel as hydrated as Olay’s claims but it doesn’t feel stripped. I like the cloths because they have some salicylic acid in them but probably not enough to have a huge impact on the skin.
The cloths became a go-to on lazy days and another travel companion in addition to my Nip Fab Glycolic Foaming pads (review on my Instagram). They are effective and produce a rich lather that cleanses the skin without stripping moisture. If I am not mistaken, they have one for different skin types.
You can find the Olay Daily Facial in a Box in stores like Superdrug, Boots although I find they are always sold out, tbh I have never seen them in store although there is shelf space for them. I bought mine on Amazon for £3.00 as an add-on item but it’s also available to purchase standalone
Olay is one of those skincare brands from the drugstore I have stayed away from for years because I had a bad reaction to one of their products YEARS ago! I think it was an eye cream for dark circles that gave me lots of rashes anyway I managed to stay away from them until now. I will be repurchasing soon and I am looking forward to giving Olay a second chance!
