Day 1407 - Olay Regenerist Advanced Cleansing System

The new beauty gadget 

It seems the new thing in face washing is this fancy little electric cleansing brush. I've noticed on the TV ads that Proactiv is giving it away as part of their magic pimple treatment range. Then when I was in Macy's in Hawaii, a woman tried to sell me one that was so special it was going to cost close to $200.  While I can see that it could help with deeper pore cleansing, I'm not sure that adding batteries for a whizzy alternative to the manual facial cleaning brush is worth $200.  But it did peak my interest.

So I was absolutely delighted when I discovered that Olay have their own version! And it's just a fraction of the cost. AND it comes with it's own 20ml tube of cleanser.

As I said, these little do-dads are pretty popular at the moment.  It seems they are a must-have for every skin caring person.  When Olay released this one in the US they sold one every three minutes!  I guess because it's touted as being every bit as effective as the $200 one at just a fraction of the price. At only $32.49 it's really affordable.

Apparently there will be a point that you'll have to change the brush heads.  The cost of replacing them is only $9.95 for a pack of two.  For that $200 gizmo I talked about it was around $30 a brush to replace. Eeek!

Now I haven't tried the $200 version, but I'm pretty happy with the Olay one.  I did a scout around the blogosphere to see if anyone had compared the two and found this review which effectively says they do the same job.

So why is everyone scrambling to buy these things?  Well apparently using the brush means you cleanse four times better and the brush helps skin absorb over 25% more anti-ageing ingredients. Well I can tell you one thing, that's enough to perk the interest of this piece of Deep Fried Fruit! Basically the brush loosens, lifts and swirls dirt away to cleanse, exfoliate and reveal brighter smoother skin underneath.

When do you use it?  Well I use mine to remove make-up at night before bed.  Now that is a major turning point in itself as I am one of these naughty people who go to bed with all the gunk still on my face.  It's quick and easy to use and less messy and "wet" than when you use your fingertips or a facecloth to get clean.

So there you have it.  You don't have to miss out on this piece of face cleansing pop culture.  With the new Olay Regenerist Advanced Cleansing System you too can join the face cleansing revolution.

Great way to keep you feeling and looking less Deep Fried.
