There’s nothing age-defying about a standard bar cleanser, which is exactly what you get here. Consider this a cross between standard soap and a bar cleanser, such as Dove Beauty Bar, and you’ll have an idea of how it functions and feels. The ingredients that keep any bar cleanser in its bar form can leave a residue that may lead to dull or ashen skin (the residue keeps skin cells from sloughing off normally). Any of Olay’s water-soluble body cleansers are preferred to this bar cleanser.

Regular soap can leave aging skin dry. The Olay Age Defying bar is different. Each bar is formulated with creamy, Olay lather. It goes beyond cleansing, delivering Olay moisturizers to the skin while helping wash away dry, surface cells. So after you dry off, all that's left is skin that feels clean and wonderfully smooth all over. It's even gentle enough to use on your face.

Brand Overview

Olay At-A-Glance

Starting decades ago with the now-classic Oil of Olay, this brand now offers an extensive range of skin-care products sold at drugstores and mass-market stores. Today's Olay lineup for those concerned about staving off the effects of aging skin is impressive, comprising their Regenerist, Pro X, and Total Effects lines. All of these (and several other Olay products) contain the B vitamin niacinamide. As you might expect, the claims made for it are inflated, but niacinamide is a very helpful ingredient for all skin types, capable of exerting multiple benefits.

In fact, perhaps the biggest complaint about Olay is that there are a number of repetitive formulas within and between the sub-brands make this line confusing and tricky to shop! Still, there is a lot to like about this drugstore stalwart, with its main drawback being a few formulas containing fragrance or other ingredients that have the potential to cause irritation.
