Total Effects Wet Cleansing Cloths
The main problem with these cleansing cloths is their minimal cleansing ability. The mechanical action of massaging the cloth over facial skin will help to some extent, but the formula lacks cleansing agents and the small amount of silicone leads to inadequate makeup removal, especially for long-wearing formulas. These cloths are an OK option as a morning cleanser or for those that eschew makeup, and they include a plentiful amount of niacinamide, a B vitamin used throughout the Total Effects line. Total Effects Wet Cleansing Cloths are best for normal to dry skin, and are OK for blemish-prone skin.
Total Effects Age Defying Wet Cleansing Cloths gently exfoliate and infuse skin with age-defying ingredients. Dual-textured cloths fight 7 signs of aging in one simple step - no lathering, no rinsing. Total Effects Wet Cloths infuse skin with vitamins and lipids, exfoliate for a smoother finish and leave no soapy residue. It's fresh, cleansed skin, with nothing left behind but softness. So come clean about everything but your age.
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.
