No shock to my readers that I’m always obsessing over new skin care. I’m all for a luxurious regimen of lotions and potions but if you follow me on Snapchat, I was asking for makeup removing wipe recommendations a couple of weeks ago. I just haven’t found any that don’t irritate my skin or remove *all* of my makeup – including mascara. With the summer coming and lots of short weekend trips, it’s unrealistic to be packing 27 products. Then, Olay Daily Facials Daily Clean 4-in-1 Water Activated Cleansing Cloths started showing up in my magazines and it sounded perfect: makeup removing facial cleanser, toner, mask and scrub all in one. You’ve got to see how well they remove my makeup and make my skin feel!
The Olay Daily Facials are makeup removing wipes – elevated. They work better than micellar water, makeup removing wipes or traditional makeup removers because of the soft textured material. A dry cloth in the packaging, you just add a little bit of water so they foam up and gently wash away all traces of makeup, dirt, and oils from your skin. Apply your serum and/or moisturizer and you’re completely done with your skin care routine in less than two minutes.
When you open the package, the cloths are textured and dry. Give them a quick run under warm water and they’ll quickly foam up with a soap-free lather. Gently massage your face – even around your eyes – with the cloth. While rinsing, I like to use the cloth to help remove remnants of makeup, especially around the eyes. Throw away the cloth after use.
The best word I can use to describe how these Olay Daily Facials feel is COMFORTING. The material is textured, yet so very soft. Because of the gentle conditioning formula, my sensitive face does not feel irritated whatsoever. It just feels fresh.

As someone with oily skin who wears makeup daily, it’s really important I find a facial cleanser for oily skin that makes me feel truly clean. The Olay Daily Facials also promise to smooth skin texture in less than one week with daily use (major deal for me).
I don’t feel like I’m rubbing my skin (especially around my eyes) to remove makeup like I do with other makeup removing products and it gets the job done a lot quicker. Plus, they’re AMAZING for travel (totally TSA approved and minimizes the number of products I’m packing… more room for lippies, lol)!
To show you how truly clean my skin is after using the Olay Daily Facials compared to a regular pre-wet makeup remover wipe, I did a little science experiment. One night, I used a makeup remover wipe to remove my makeup/cleanse my skin. I followed up by using an oil-blotting sheet to see what residue was left on my skin after it was completely dry. The next day, I wore the exact same makeup but used my Olay Daily Facials to remove my makeup/cleanse my skin and blotted.
What you can notice immediately in the first photos (left to right) is how calm and less red my face is immediately after using the Olay Daily Facials compared to rubbing with the pre-wet makeup remover wipe. I was even surprised myself. As you can see in the last photo, next to NO oil is remaining after using the Olay Daily Facials as opposed to the makeup removing wipe. I even waited a full minute for my skin to be completely dry before blotting. This test proved that I could even go makeup free after using Olay Daily Facials for that #NoMakeupRequired look!
I highly suggest heading to Olay.com to learn more about the Olay Daily Facials Daily Clean 4-in-1 Water Activated Cleansing Cloths where you can shop for them, and to check out their incredible line of supplemental skin care products like treatments, moisturizer, etc. Olay is a brand that’s been trusted for decades one I have recommended to friends and family (including my own husband, mom, and sister) for years.
