I blogged about the new Olay Regenerist Advanced Cleansing System a couple of weeks ago and have been pushing my friends, family and all sundry to go buy one ever since. I believe I’ve directly converted at least 50 people… Olay folks you reading this? Hahahaha.
But anyway, nearly all my closest BFFs own one now. One of them is an ex-Clarisonic user and she gave me some feedback on the differences between an Olay and a Clarisonic so being the good beauty blogger I am, I’m gonna share with with you all.
Here’s what she says:
|Brush head||Bristles hurt, even though it’s for “sensitive” skin.||Softer bristles.|
|Brush size||Larger head means you spend less time on a spot/face.||Smaller head equals more moving about.|
|Rotation||What rotation? Vibration perhaps?||Pretty good!|
|Speed||Two speed vibration.. no help.||No discernable difference.|
|Battery Life||18 – 24hr charge for 20min usage.||2 AA batteries for a few months.|
|Travelling||Comes with case.||Zero. Zip. Nada.|
|Cost||Upwards of SGD $250.||SGD $49.90.|
Looking at this table, I’m inclined to declare Olay the clear winner.
BUT. There are other factors in play as well. Are you looking for a face and body exfoliant? How about warranty? If you just want a simple cleansing device for the face then go for the Olay. For a full body experience, I’m leaning towards the Clarisonic.
I wanna complain a little though. Why does USA get prettier products than us!? The ex-Clarisonic user is a flight stewardess so she got hers from Los Angeles and discovered this fact.
Oh yes it’s called PRO-X in the States. And all my BBFs have the pink Olay, except me – the one who introduced it to them. This is unfair 😦
