1 Week Using Olay Regenerist Collagen Peptide 24 Cream Cleanser. Goodbye Acne?
Even though I couldn’t use Olay Regenerist Collagen Peptide 24 Cream Cleanser as a stand alone facial cleanser, I continued to use it because I have it. What am I to do with this facial cleanser? Throw it out? I think not! lol. I used Olay Regenerist Collagen Peptide 24 Cream Cleanser as a pre-cleanser. So I use the Olay cream cleanser first. Next, I use my daily cleanser to rinse off any residue left behind by the Olay cream cleanser. The Olay cream cleanser is notorious for leaving a thin layer of film behind on the skin. It doesn’t make a good facial cleanser at all. Well, on my skin it doesn’t. I have oily skin, and I need a facial cleanser that removes sebum, dirt, debris from my skin very thoroughly. This doesn’t cut it. But…
The cleanser feels so soft, velvety, and smooth on the skin. I always look forward to using it. I’m in love with the texture and consistency of the product. I just wish my skin could handle a creamy cleanser like this. It’s just so gentle on the skin and doesn’t irritate the skin at all. Well, besides the slight burning sensation in the beginning. Don’t worry, that stinging sensation eventually went away after a whole week of using it twice a day. It must be the salicylic acid in this product that’s doing that. Also, my skin isn’t as dry anymore using this cleanser, since it’s so creamy and rich. It leaves my skin more moisturized compared to using my main cleanser alone (PanOxyl Acne Foaming Wash 10%). The ingredients in this cleanser isn’t too bad either. It contains moisturizers, niacinamide, snow mushroom, and collagen peptides.
During the first week, I started to notice a breakout again even with cleansing my skin with another facial cleanser after using Olay cream cleanser. But these pimples were much different. It didn’t fill up my pores (what it did without following up with another facial cleanser). It was unclogging them. I can see closed comedones moving up to the surface, and my skin smoothing out. I spent so much time on prescription acne treatments, and I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. And this is working?? This is truly amazing. Salicylic acid usually doesn’t work on my acne, but this seems to be working. I just didn’t expect it. And it’s super affordable and accessible too. I’m hooked! Well, as long as it continues to clear up my skin!
So it seems like this facial cleanser (or treatment, what I use it as) is working on my acne. Who knew. I just purchased it to replace my facial cleanser, but I ended up with something that cleared up most of my leftover acne without drying my entire face out! I’m so happy! My skin isn’t fully clear yet, but it’s moving in that direction. I mean, it’s only been 1 week on this product. Salicylic acid takes time to work too. So far, I have some small areas that need to be cleared out, but I think it’s going to happen in a few weeks. Everyone, my skin is almost officially clear, and I’m ecstatic about the results!! I haven’t worn any makeup for the past weeks due to the brightness, smoothness, and how my clear my skin looks. I can’t wait to see results next week! A new update soon to see if it’s truly working! I like what I’m seeing after 1 week! 😀
