Pros: deep cleansing, light scent, rich lather
Cons: does not deliver on no shine promise, does not deliver on the

Let me start by first clarifying my ratings. The only reason I would not recommend this product to a friend is that I did not notice any substantial difference in the shine diminishing on my face. That is also the reason I rated it 3 out of 5 stars, for the simple fact that it did not deliver on the promise of reducing shine. That said, this product did a fantastic job in cleansing my face. It foams up into a nice rich lather that rinses away clean, leaving no trace of residue. My skin feels nice and clean as well as moisturized. The scent is nice and light, not heavy or overpowering in the least. This product does not leave the skin on my face tight and dry as do some other cleansers. I trust Olay products implicitly, and this product is no different. Even though it does not deliver on the "no shine" promise, at least for me, this is still a great facial cleanser that I will use again. If you are looking for a good facial cleanser, I recommend you give this one a try. Who knows? The no shine part may work for you, even if it didn't for me.

    When I am thinking shiny skin, I think about my own face right after I wash it or a few hours into the day when the oil is pouring out even though it is not needed at all. Many cleansers will just clog up my pores and will make the problem even worse then it was to begin with. Read more
