Goodbye pores, hello great skin

5

I love this cleanser. Not only is it rich and lathery to put on, but it also leaves your skin smooth and soft. I had tried probably 75-100 different facial cleansers and this is near the top of the list. The cleanser has just the right amount of scrub in combination with the right amount of soap. The best!!

Decent Cleanser, No Noticeable Pore Minimizing

3

I am always on the lookout for a pore minimizer that works and doesn't break my bank. I am convinced that all my years of running and working out are what caused such noticeable pores in my skin - noticeable to me, at least. I have had good luck with Clean and Clear products overall, and find them relatively inexpensive with coupons always floating around, so I decided to check out their Daily Scrub with Pore Minimizer. I had to use this in addition to my makeup remover, if used at night. It's not effective for makeup, really just for dirt and to clean the pores out. I used this for a couple weeks, along with a pore minimizing toner after I finished washing with this scrub. My face always felt clean, and never tight or dry, but I really didn't see any difference in my pores. I was excited to try a product that cost me so little, but perhaps this is a perfect example of getting what you pay for.

works okay

The Olay Pore Minimizing Cleanser and Scrub is an okay product. It does not work miracles and it does not really reduce the size of my pores. The product is a pretty good cleanser. It does not have any miraculous scrubbing benefits though. There really is no exfoliation factor at all which leaves me feeling like I did not get a really good deep clean. I was satisfied with the amount of dirt, debris, makeup and oil it removed however. I just did not feel like it did anything more than that. I also felt like it left behind some dirt in the pores and if so, they would not be ready to be minimized anyways because that will just create big huge zits. I think it is a great regular face wash as it was gentle and I really love the foaming action on facial washes. I just do not really recommend it for more than that. Effectiveness Does not really minimize pores at all. Ease of Application I really like the foaming action and it is very gentle on the skin. Scent The scent was okay, but there was nothing phenomenal about it. It just smelled like soap.

Works pretty well on acne

4

Let me start off by saying I am embarrassed to admit and share this. When I was running and working out all the time, I started to get acne on my back, usually around where my sports bra was rubbing. It was gross and seriously had me in fear that someone would see it. I have since learned a few things that helped with it, but when using this product for my acne it was just okay- not wonderful but not terrible either. The positive things this product did was exfoliate my skin well, and I felt like it did help dry out my skin a little to get the oil under control. The bad about this product was that when I used it I felt it was a bit messy. I am glad that I use it in the shower so it isn't a big deal, but I just could not imagine using this product at the sink given how messy it gets! That being said, remember how I said it dries your skin out, sometimes it dries it out a little too much. Be careful when using it. If you feel like it is making your skin too dry and sensitive, then be judicious and stop using it for a bit. Overall I didn't hate this product, but lets just say when people ask for a recommendation for acne this is not the first product to pop into my head.

Olay Pore Minimizing Cleanser + Scrub is just okay for me.

Olay Pore Minimizing Cleanser + Scrub is unfortunately not one of my favorite facial scrubs. I was quite disappointed when I first used this product. In general Olay is a great brand in my opinion. I have used and do use some Olay products. This however is not one of them. I just wasn't happy with the performance of this product. It didn't make my skin feel clean. It didn't feel like a scrub. It had a greasy feel to it that didn't stick to my skin when I tried to apply it. It kind of just blobbed off into the sink. When I worked it into my skin it just didn't feel like a scrub. It didn't feel like it was doing anything much at all. My skin didn't even particularly feel clean after use. Not my favorite. Effectiveness Olay Pore Minimizing Cleanser + Scrub just didn't make my skin feel clean at all. It just didn't do what I expected it to do. Ease of Application Olay Pore Minimizing Cleanser + Scrub isn't easy to apply either. It just globs on. It isn't a product that I will use again. I'm sure it is fine for some people. But I am not a fan of this product at all. There are many better choices for me. Scent Olay Pore Minimizing Cleanser + Scrub's scent is probably the best feature it has to offer. It does have a nice fresh scent.

This pdoduct is one of the best available!

Feels wonderful on your face. Totally leaving you feeling refreshed! You feel totally awake after using this product in the morning and in the evening seems to relax you and leave you feeling refreshed. It helps you feel relaxed and ready to handle the day and leaves you ready to relax and enjoy your evening after a long day. It is one of the best cleansers available and is not expensive. It beats several of the expensive ones I have tried. Effectiveness It keeps my facial pores cleansed and rinsed thorougly. It leaves your facial skin clean and refreshed. This scrub totally cleanses like a true winner Ease of Application This Olay product is super easy to apply to your face. All you have to do is splash some water onto your face, squeeze some of the product into your hands, rub hands togather, apply to face, and finally rinse the product off your face and pat dry your face with a towel. How much simpler can you get to having you feeling completely clean and refreshed? Scent This Olay product really does not seem to have any scent to it but it does leave your skin feeling tremendous! Even though there is no scent you feel completely clean and leaves you with no odor.

Doesn't really help with pore size but cleans good

3

I buy a lot of beauty products and am usually disappointed with quite a few of them not doing what they claim they should do. I purchased the Olay Pore Minimizing Cleanser + Scrub on clearance at a local store and was hoping it would do as it claims and minimize the size of my pores around my nose. After the first wash, my skin felt a little tight but the pores looked to be the same size as before, so no difference there. Because it has little scrubbing beads, it did help to exfokiate my skin and make it look a little more vibrant which I liked. The cleanser part of the wash made my skin feel really clean without drying it out like a lot of washes do. While I was pleased with how well this cleaned, I was hoping I would see a difference in my pores which I didn't so I will not purchase this again. Effectiveness Didn't minimize pores but cleaned well. Scent Scent was nice, not medicated smelling or perfumey.

Fresh, Light and Works Right

This product isn't the first Olay product that I have used so I didn't hesitate to try this new Olay Pore Minimizing Clenser and Scrub when I saw it on sale recently at my drug store. I have sensitive skin and will sometimes end up with itchy bumps or reddish blotches on my face with many products. This product was gentle to my skin and left no rash so far. It has a nice, light scent that smells a tad like apples, making it enjoyable to use. It lathers up nicely with a minimal amount of product and the cleansing beads are not super harsh on my skin. I only use the product 3-4 times a week to prevent over drying of my facial skin. I have not used it long enough to know how well it works on shrinking my pores, and my pores are not that large anyway. I bought it as a light facial scrub I could use in the hot, humid southern summer months. It definitely washes off the daily grime and oil that develops on my skin and leaves a slight tightening feeling once rinsed. I follow up with a toner product to actually tighten my pores once my face is clean.

WOW Really I did not know they had stuff like this!

I love this product it cleans and clears my pores. I really never knew I had so many blackheads and such clogged-up pores until I started using this stuff and viols! A new skin for me, it was clear and smooth looking with no more of those dirty pores making my face look dirty. Effectiveness It works! I can tell so much difference in the quality of my skin since I have began using Clean and Clear. There is just a smoother and clean look that I have and I just use it three (3) times a week and I am seeing a new person in the mirror. Ease of Application Really easy to use, just wet your skin and put a small amount into the palm of your hand and apply a portion to your face and neck. Once it is applied you wash and cleanse your face using your fingertips and work in a circular motion for about thirty seconds then you just rinse and pat dry. That's all there is to it and you will see a visible difference after using the first time. Scent ti doesn't really have much smell to it, other than to say it has a clean and fresh scent.

Does appear to shrink pores but doesn't help my blackheads a lot

4

This scrub does exfoliate and off the bat seems to make my nose and forehead pores appear a little smaller or at least a little clearer but it doesn't scrub out the blackheads in my nose or chin. I feel as if they're too deep for this type of drugstore cure. The scrub isn't too harsh and it's good for acne as well. It leaves my skin soft and feeling nice but it's not as abrasive as I would like, which is usually the opposite of how I feel about products. The smell isn't amazing on this. Smells like a regular ole cleanser but that isn't a deal breaker. does a good job removing dirt and makeup from my face. Not so good for eye area makeup and mascara. May way to remove that with a makeup remover first. Overall it's pretty gentle on the skin. I also use it on chest area, especially if I've been working out. Effectiveness Does a good job on most of my face and appears to make the pores more clear/smaller but doesn't get rid of my stubborn black heads which is a drawback. Ease of Application Easy to apply but does irritate my finger tips a little by over exfoliating them while I scrub. Scent It doesn't have much of a smell. Isn't bad really but smells more medicine-y than anything.
