When Clarisonic first came into the beauty world, everyone went crazy. For the first few years we here at Malaysia doesn’t have the luxury to purchase it off the store so many travel oversea for holiday and brought back. Back then I have no idea what was they hype all about. I mean it’s only for cleansing the face. I don’t get what’s the hoo haa about. To spend close to RM600 for a device to clean the face? Not for me. No way I’m going to spend that much on a hand-held device to wash my face. The best part is after reading all the redness and breakout from using Clarisonic, people still go continue to go crazy.
Ever since my skin allergy attack I have to be careful with what I use on my face. No doubt there has been quite a few cleansing device that is available in the market but there is one particular that I am interested with. I don’t just settle with any XXX brand device. I’m more intrigued with Olay Professional Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System.
When I first heard about this Olay Professional Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System, I went blank a while trying to think if Olay Malaysia launched it that I’m not aware of. Silly me. I then realized that this is not sold in any physical pharmacy store in Malaysia. In fact you can only get it from an online store, particularly from Supermodel’s Secrets Beauty Store that order the devices directly from USA. Most of their beauty products are imported from oversea 😀
Olay is the first skincare that I used when I was still in high school. Those days it is a famous and reliable brand and still is to date. You can never go wrong with Olay what more Olay Professional.
This intelligent face cleansing device is designed by a team of dermatologists along with Olay. The Advanced Cleansing System is as effective as a system sold by skin professionals for nearly USD200. The Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System is professionally and clinically designed to cleanse 6 times better and also sets your skin up for supersonic anti-aging moisturization.
All you need to know info related to the Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System is strategically written all over the box. It is available in 2 language so do read carefully one by one just so you don’t miss any info. I am not someone that like to read what’s on the box. Yea I’m the rebellious one. Normally I’ll use it first, then read if something went wrong lol! Please don’t follow my bad habit. Always read 😀
The back of the box which is the white part is more about the info on the device such as what it is, what benefit it can bring to your skin, how to operate the device and what are the item that is included in the box.
On the side is where you should read before using the device. This part is more of a usage instruction. As I said before I used the device before reading and I was somehow feeling weird that the cleanser didn’t foam up much. Then I realized I should also dampen the brush and not just face alone. See! That’s for being rebellious on not reading before using 😀
Here is what you should be getting in a box of Olay Professional Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System.
(1) One 2-speed device
(2) One brush head
(3) One trial size Exfoliating Renewal Cleanser 20ml
(4) Two AA batteries
I’m actually happy to see the two AA battery that was included in the box. Normally I don’t get that in any product that I bought. So there is no fumbling looking for battery in the house 😀
Before operating the device, there is one tiny small preparation to do like inserting the two AA batteries into the device and plug in the brush head. You will know that the brush head is plugged in correctly by a sturdy “click” sound. The battery cover can be very hard to be removed. Just wiggle a bit and pull.
Operating the Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System is quite simple actually. There is only 2 button on the device. Just two. The top button is the ON/OFF Button while the bottom one is the 2-Speed Control Button, where you control the brush spinning speed.
Each box set of Olay Professional Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System also comes with a trial size 20ml of Exfoliating Renewal Cleanser. This 20ml lasts quite long on me despite using a generous amount on numerous times 😀
Exfoliating Renewal Cleanser is designed to purify and renew skin to refreshed smoothness. It is basically scentless. It is an exfoliator as well as a cleanser at the same time. It contain tiny beads that is not harsh on the skin as the gel cleanser is more dominating than the scrub beads.
To use this efficiently and properly, just dampen your face, apply and massage onto the face. Remember to wet the brush head before using the Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System in order for the cleanser to work properly.
I love the 2-speed brush function. I must admit I’m always on the fast mode. Impatient me :P. When I do have more time to pamper my face, I will use the slow speed and massage slowly, taking my sweet time. Eventhough so, it is not recommended to over cleanse your face. It is stated to use it only for approximately 60 seconds but you know me…I always go beyond what was stated lol. So far so good.
As this would be my first ever face cleansing device and also my first time using it, I wasn’t used to the whole spinning brush on my face on day one. I wasn’t sure what to do. Should I move around or should I hold still? I tried holding still but it is just so weird. Then I tried moving the device around my face and that’s it. I finally get it. Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System is battery operated so it is safe to use in the shower.
I don’t use this Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System everyday. I would prefer to use it once every two days to let my skin rest and have enough time to rejuvenate in between each usage. I sounded as if the device is harsh but it is the most gentle I ever heard and tried. I always felt that my pores are dirty maybe because I have larger pore than everybody else. After a good few usage of Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System, I actually felt my skin is more cleaner and it does help with the absorbant of the skincare I used as this clean 6-times better than normal hand washing.
I don’t normally show you my bare face especially during cleansing but just for you, just because I am more confident with my face now especially that I do love this Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System and how my skin benefited from using it…I’ve posted up a video below on how I use the device to cleanse my face. Just half face only ok? Heee! You can see that my complexion is much more clearer. I do believe it’s the combination use of Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System with my regular skincare products. Now I understand what’s the hype! The bestest part is Olay Professional Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System is more affordable, gentle and doesn’t cause skin irritation or allergy.
Do note that you should avoid the eye area ya :D. After using Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System, you need not to use scrub or double cleanse. This is basically the cleaser + scrub routine. I know some of you must be wondering what if you ran out of the Exfoliating Renewal Cleanser. Simple. Just use your own cleanser. I’ve tried a few cleanser that I have in my bathroom and all work just as well :). Do also take note that the brush should be changed every 3-6 months depending how worn out your brush is.
