This cleanser/scrub hybrid helps round out the Pro-X line. It is a good option for all skin types, but formula-wise it differs little from similar cleanser/scrubs in Olay’s main line. The only difference is the cost, which comes down to marketing rather than a formulary distinction. This fragrance-free cleanser is gentle and leaves skin feeling very smooth—you just don’t need to spend this much money for equally good results.

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.
