The verdict

“Ok I was really surprised by the results of the [Olay Vitamin C Resurfacing Treatment Mask + AHA Peel Serum Activator]. I had some dry skin around my forehead and chin that was immediately exfoliated. Even the bumpy texture of some blemishes under the skin were gone. My skin has been smooth for days following! This is the ultimate facial for me, and I will not hesitate to continue with this combo. I've not had any breakouts or skin issues from using this. My skin is glowing! I highly recommend this if you are in need of a deep skin treatment to get rid of impurities and dead skin. To be completely honest, I've had facials that didn't give me the results that this did!”

“I’ve been using [Olay 5-in-1 Vitamin C Scrub Hydrating] quite regularly since receiving it and it’s really awesome. It has a lovely smell, slight exfoliation which is suitable for use on a regular basis. I don’t often buy fancy skin care for myself because I’m a working mum with two kids so life just gets in the way but using this product has helped bring my skin back to better condition. This is a great size product and would be suitable to take away with you on holidays as a face scrub. Would recommend it to anyone! Even got my husband using it. I feel like using this alongside the face peel has made me feel younger as it’s helped with breakouts and dull skin!”

“I really enjoyed [Olay 5-in-1 Vitamin C Scrub Detoxifying]. You only need a small amount so this large tube will last a long time. The scrub partials are very small and not harsh at all so you can easily use this every day. There is no scent to this product and it doesn't strip your skin nor leave it with a film once washed off it just leaves your skin feeling clean and fresh. I feel like it helped with oil control somewhat. It exfoliated away rough patches and smoothed my skin which resulted in my makeup looking much better on my skin. I will continue to use this product and recommend it to others.”

“I was excited to try this [Olay 5-in-1 Vitamin C Scrub Pore Purifying] since I always like Olay products, and the idea of Dragon fruit was interesting too. I hardly ever see this ingredient in products and had no idea it can help with glowy skin and acne! It smelt really nice as well, a gentle and slightly sweet smell. I like a good scrub product, but am always conscious of it being too rough on my skin and stripping it of all the good things. I was pleasantly surprised by this scrub, because it was super effective but also super gentle on my skin! The scrub wasn't too granular, more felt like small flakes, and a small amount would spread really easily across my entire face. It definitely made a difference, my skin felt cleaner and also looked brighter after every use. I will be using this scrub in the future as I really like how gentle it is!”
