Regenerist Micro-Exfoliating Wet Cleansing Cloths
Regenerist Micro-Exfoliating Wet Cleansing Cloths do not contain cleansing agents or anything capable of exfoliating skin, although the mechanical action of massaging these cloths over skin (similar to using a washcloth) will remove some dead skin cells. The glycol and silicone can help dislodge makeup, but we wouldn’t choose these cloths to remove waterproof mascara (Olay claims they do this, but that’s debatable). We suppose these are an OK option for normal to dry skin if you wear minimal to no makeup.
Infused with an anti-aging complex to help regenerate the skin's surface at the cellular level as you cleanse: Gently detoxifies by removing dirt, oil and makeup, even waterproof mascara. Improves surface dullness and tone. Smooths skin texture - visibly and to the touch.
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.
