    Quick Summary

    I gave Olay Pro X Exfoliating Renewal Cleanser 1.5 out of 5 stars.

    Besides the simple application process, there really isn’t much about this exfoliator I like.

    This product doubles as a cleanser and an exfoliator, however it does neither well. I still had areas of dry skin and make up on my face immediately after use.

    I also didn’t like how fast my skin got oily after using this product, it was rather gross.

    This exfoliator didn’t do anything for my skin, and just wasn’t worth it in my opinion.

    Overall, I was really disappointed with this exfoliator.

    Detailed Review:


    Olay Pro X Exfoliating Renewal Cleanser is a thick, clear gel.

    If you look closely you can see the very tiny, white microbeads in the gel.

    It’s very thick, and a bit sticky to the touch.


    This exfoliator doesn’t have a scent to it and is fragrance free, which is great for those of you with sensitive skin.

    Application Process

    Olay’s Pro X Exfoliating Renewal Cleanser is recommended to be used daily.

    I like products that double as an exfoliator and a cleanser, but this one let me down in both areas :(

    The application process is very simple: massage over moistened face, rinse and pat dry.

    I found this product to be very easy to apply and rinse off, which is one of the very few things I liked about it.

    Any Drying and/or Redness?

    This exfoliator is extremely gentle and definitely suitable for daily use. I didn’t experience any drying or redness while using this exfoliator. In my opinion, this scrub is TOO gentle.


    I was super disappointed in the results of this product.

    I love that this is a dual-purpose product however; it neither exfoliated nor cleansed my face well.

    This scrub is meant for daily use so it is very gentle. I found it to be WAY too gentle though.

    After use I really didn’t seen any results at all. The areas of dry skin I had prior to use still existed. My face also felt as though I still had make up on. I ended up having to use a face wipe after use to remove the addition make up left on my face.

    I have naturally oily skin and I found that after using this exfoliator my skin was even oilier than before I used it. This may have to due with the fact that it doesn’t clean your face well. Regardless, I didn’t like it!


    Olay uses microbeads as the main exfoliant in their Olay Pro X Exfoliating Renewal Cleanser. These plastic beads are very bad for the environment and have been a big no-no in the exfoliating industry lately.

    One good thing about this exfoliator is that it’s fragrance free.

    Many exfoliators include fragrances, which can be drying and irritating for sensitive skin.


    This scrub costs $17.99.

    I would say this is in the low to mid price range for an exfoliator.

    However, it’s not worth the price.

    There are many other less expensive exfoliators on the market, which deliver better results.
