Be-Talk: Olay Natural White Foaming Cleanser

 Brand Name: Olay

Type: Foaming Cleanser (Face wash)

Quantity: 50ml

Price: 99 INR

Thanks to my skin which is moody as much as I am-I am constantly on the look out for face washes which can control the localized oil mines on my face-and I want the oil-free effect to last long too. I have used facewashes from various brands-but the oil control effect I see lasts maximum upto one hour or so. This time-I was packing my bags for my trip-and needed a travel friendly size of facewash tube-and the store lady suggested me to use the Olay Natural White Foaming Cleanser. Since I had a fairly good experience with the Olay Natural white day cream-I slipped it into my bag without much qualms.

I like the way this cleanser keeps my face oil free for a long time and leaves it deeply cleansed while lathering nicely. I observed that it somehow controls breakouts too! However, it tends to make my skin dry and I hardly can do without a moisturizer after using it. So I have to get my hands on an oil-free moisturizer immediately-or using this face-wash would become useless within few minutes! And as for fairness-I seriously did not test results-trust me-a facewash is supposed to CLEAN your face –not turn it white!!! However, the squeaky clean feel this face wash renders is good enough to make my skin look bright-as it removes grime and dirt quite efficiently.

Pro Side:

1) It instantly removes the greasy feeling on skin

2)Oil-free effect stays for long

3) I observed breakouts to lessen during its use

4)Gives a deep cleansed feeling-which I guess makes the face look    bright and glowing as the product claims.


Makes skin feel dry and stretchy after use. A moisturizer is imperative following its use.

Recommendation: 80%


  1. it wont be suitable for dry skin na?:(

  2. Well- I think-if you can use a good moisturiser after this, it will be fine-but I suggest using this as it gives a very good deep cleansing effect :) :) :)
