About 2 months ago I purchased the Olay Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System as an alternative to the Clarisonic Mia that I already own. I will post a review of the Mia soon. I really wanted something easier to travel with than the Mia and its charger.
In general I would give this product 3.5 of 5 stars. I like that I can travel with it but wish it would have come with a case. I first remove the batteries and put it in a zip up cosmetics bag that is lined so I can easily wipe it out. I appreciate that it offers 2 speeds, but find them both a bit weak. In fact, when I use this brush I often find I have to use a washcloth afterwards to remove dead skin that's been loosened. I feel that the Olay Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System brush helps to loosen dead skin but doesn't really do a great job of removing it. I don't have this issue with my Clarisonic Mia. In all I like this product and am glad to have it as part of my travel kit.
- Runs on 2 AA batteries
- 2 speeds
- Can be used in the shower
- Easily packed for travel
- Replacement brush heads are 2/$10 and available at mass retailers
- Brush head spins and can tangle hair
- Does not incorporate sonic technology
- Would like a faster speed
- Would prefer larger brush head
- Doesn't do as thorough a job as the Clarisonic Mia
