This Olay cleansing system comes with the actual handle thingy that has the button and all that good stuff. One brush head and 2 AA batteries.
It also comes with a cleanser but to be totally honest, I did not even try the cleanser since my face breaks out so easily. I just didn't want to use a new product and go through all of the hassle.
The bottom of the actual gadget pops up and you can place the two batteries in. At first when I tried I could not open it. I thought I was doing something wrong but it seemed right. So the second or maybe it was the third try, I opened it finally. Yay!!
There are two buttons on the handle. the top one is to turn on/off the system. The bottom button is to change the speed which has two speed settings which I believe is normal and high.
The actual rotating system is easy to hold and it is not heavy at all. The brush head gets attached easily and you can also remove it without any trouble.
While using this, the brush head spins in a circular shape which I think is awesome for massaging the face and neck. I really like the feeling of it doing its thing on my face. So what I do is just just simply move it around on my face and apply a light pressure. So easy!
I really like the bristles of the brush head. It is soft but not too soft. It does the job without irritating my skin. So basically it is gentle on the face while doing its job.
The size of the brush is perfect in my opinion. not too large to be hard to use it around the nose and stuff but not too small to take so long to do the whole face and neck.
At first I actually wanted to buy the Clarisonic facial system and I was actually saving my money for it since that thing is EXPENSIVE! I did a lot of research and people who had it seemed to love it. Long story short, one day I was browsing through one of my favourite online shops well.ca and I stumbled upon this Olay facial system. As usual I did some research and I immediately ordered it.
Ever since I received this little gadget, I have been using it and really loving it. I have absolutely nothing against it or anything bad to say about it. It does say "water resistant for use in the shower" in the back of the box, but I don't really use this in the shower so I have no idea how it works in the shower and all that.
This retails for about $30 (Canadian Dollar) but it still depends on where you get it from. I was lucky because when I ordered it it was on sale for $16 (Canadian dollar) which was even more awesome.
So I am really happy with this facial system and I don't regret buying it at all. I am also very happy to have found a cheaper alternative to Clarisonic facial system.
