Olay Pro-X Microdermabrasion Plus Advanced Cleansing System Reviews

I’ve seen tons of blogs and YouTube videos reviewing on the Olay Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System but none on this next generation so I decided to do a review on this specific product.

Today I will be reviewing the Olay Pro-X Microdermabrasion Plus Advanced Cleansing System which I have been using for about three weeks now. This product is an ‘upgraded’ version of it’s previous Olay Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System. This new and improved set has a new Microdermabrasion Foam head, high speed setting and a Thermal Crystal Polisher .

Olay Pro-X Microdermabrasion Plus Advanced Cleansing System

Olay is an American skin care line that started out in 1949 with it’s original brand name as Oil of Olay. The Olay brand has expanded into a range of other products grouped in “boutiques” including Complete, Total Effects, Professional, Regenerist, Quench (North America), White Radiance (Asia) and Olay Vitamins (USA). Olay is well-known for their anti-aging moisturizers with the launch of Total Effects in 1999.

The brushes on the Olay Pro-X Microdermabrasion Plus Advanced Cleansing System are interchangeable . Mainly two brushes are used, the Microdermabrasion Foam Head and the Cleansing Brush Head. To attach the brushes to the system head , press the system head onto the connection pin until it clicks into place. The brush head is sturdy when clicked in and will not fall off when the system is turned on.

Also , the Olay brush rotates while the Clarisonic brush vibrates .

There are three speeds to the cleansing system. Each speed setting lets you choose the precise level of facial cleansing you need each day. Use the slowest speed for lighter cleansing, or try the Advanced Cleansing Speed for a deep clean. The Microdermabrasion brush should be used with the 3rd / highest speed on the system.

The brushes work together to gently polish away imperfections, dull patches and surface discoloration. The product claims that exfoliation is at least 7x better than our scrub alone.

I personally think that the brushes feel really soft on the skin, and the cleansing is definitely better than just a scrub, because the brush bristles are very fine and are able to reach into pores that your fingers may not. My face has gotten clearer around the cheeks and I always feel fresher after using it.

In both the cleanser and polisher are fine beads that exfoliate the skin. The sample tubes are actually quite small and the actual cleanser/polisher product is quite little so you may need to get the proper bigger tube when you are done with it.

You can use your personal cleanser to replace the Exfoliating Renewal Cleanser, however it is advised to use the Thermal Crystal Polisher for microdermabrasion. After using either products, your skin will feel soft and clean, however it is recommended to follow up with a moisturizer as the cleansing/polishing may dry your facial skin.

This product is designed to increase skin exfoliation that may increase skin’s sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn.  It is therefore favoured to apply sunscreen after use.

An overview of the two generations of Olay’s Pro-X .

Directions : Dampen facial skin and system head with water. Gently massage on face for 60 seconds . Avoid the eye area . Rinse face and system head with water after use.

Advanced daily cleansing gentle enough for daily use on days when microdermabrasion treatment not used. Microdermabrasion treatments should be limited to 2 non-consecutive days/week. Do not use your personal scrub together with the Olay Pro-X Cleansing System as it might be too abrasive to the skin.

* Remember to remove makeup before using to prevent the brushes from being stained .

It is better to use it at the end of the day when your skin has accumulated dirt and sweat etc. as in the morning your skin would still be clean. The cleansing system is waterproof therefore one is able to use the product in the shower.

There is no problem with using it multiple times daily so depending on your skin’s condition, you may wish to try it once a day first and slowly increase the frequency. I would suggest starting with the first/slowest speed for cleansing as it is less harsh on your skin, and slowly work it up to the second/middle speed.

Installing the battery : The battery compartment is at the bottom of the cleansing system with the logo printed on it. The cap fits on rather tight to prevent water from seeping in (the waterproof function), and therefore one might need a little strength to open it. Hold the cap firmly, wiggle the cap and rock it side to side while pulling.

I do not own the Clarisonic Mia nor have I tried it therefore I will not be able to do a review or comparison with that product.

The Olay Pro-X Microdermabrasion Plus Advanced Cleansing System is not currently available in Singapore but can be purchased online. The Cleansing Brush Head and Exfoliating Renewal Cleanser can be found in Watsons stores.

Verdict : I have only been using the product for 3 weeks so I might not be able to fully show how well it has worked for me. I might update again in the future . I hope the review has helped whoever who was looking to buy this product.

I personally do enjoy using it and will be using it for a long time. Olay’s Pro-X is much more affordable (a fraction of the price) than the Clarisonic Mia, but to each their own, it may work differently on everyone.

I prefer using my personal cleanser (with exfoliating beads) with the daily cleansing brush and the Thermal Crystal Polisher from them for the microdermabrasion as I really enjoy the feeling (the initial heat after you place it on your skin !).

Update : It’s been a few months now and I would say I still like the Cleansing brush but I’ve stopped using the Microdermabrasion brush as I don’t see anymore dead skin coming off my face when I do use it. I’m using my personal cleanser and it’s been working out for me fine .
