Olay Fresh Effects’ Va-Va-Vivid cleansing system Review

I received the Olay Fresh Effects’ Va-Va-Vivid Powered Contour Cleansing System and Shine Minimizing Cleanser from my Influenster VoxBox and it's a great little product that leaves my skin feeling super clean and smooth.

The only issue I have with the Olay Fresh Effects Shine Minimizing Cleanser (and it's not really the products fault) is that I have very sensitive skin and almost every product I use (even acne treatments) causes my skin to break out and this product isn't any different. My skin breaks out with a few pimples each time I use the cleansing system, which makes me sad because I really do like this product. It has a very nice smell and texture to it and leaves my skin feeling wonderful.

About the cleanser: "All the purifying power of a mask with the fresh feel of a daily cleanser. This face wash gently lathers and reaches deep into the skin to help reduce the appearance of pores."

Even though I may not continue using the Shine Minimizing Cleanser, I'll keep using the little Powered Contour Cleansing System (the brush), I love it and I'll just use other facial products with it. The bristles are made of a soft rubber and when you push the button on the handle it vibrates. The one "negative" thing about the brush is that when I get to my nose it tickles the hell out of it, like I don't know if I want to sneeze or laugh hysterically. A great thing about the brush is that it's waterproof, so I can use it in the shower because I hate/fail at washing my face in the sink.

The official blurb about the brush is "This battery-powered device reaches deep into contours, liberating skin from dirt, oil, and makeup in hard-to-reach places for a clean that is 400% better then basic cleansing."

I would recommend this product to anyone that doesn't have super sensitive skin like I do and I would recommend the brush to anyone.

You can find the  Olay Fresh Effects’ Va-Va-Vivid Powered Contour Cleansing System in stores for around $12.99 and the Olay Fresh Effects Shine Minimizing Cleanser (Shine, Shine Go Away!) for around $5.99 in the 5oz size.

  1. great review here wondering if i would probably have the same reaction to it as i too have sensitive skin

    1. Thank you :) I'm not sure. Like I said I have bad reactions to really anything I put on my face, but this one had the least amount of reaction to it, the pimples I got were very small (like pin pricks). If I do continue using the cleanser I'll probably only use it once every few weeks to keep the reaction to a minimum.
