Those of you who are not avid followers of beauty blogs will probably greet this with a shrug. Take my word for it, though: saying you don't like Cetaphil on a style site is like saying you don't like chocolate in a Cathy cartoon. It just never happens.
But when it comes to picking a cleanser for my sensitive skin, I'll skip the Cetaphil and go with Olay Foaming Face Wash for Sensitive Skin any day of the week, and here's why.
Does It Work?
All this is a very long, drawn-out way of explaining that what works for me, might not work for you. But for my combination, allergy-prone skin, this is the perfect budget skin cleanser.
Texture, Feel, and Smell:
On the other side of the coin, cleansers for other skin types can feel awfully harsh, especially if you're one of those lucky folks who develops allergies as a hobby. Olay Foaming Face Wash is scent-free, so it's easy on sensitive skin.
How to Use:
Wet your face and hands and work a few drops of cleanser into a lather. Then massage the foam into your face for a minute or so, and rinse off thoroughly. Seriously, don't just splash your face once and call it good. Even though this is a soap-free cleanser, you still want to make sure you're getting rid of all the residue before you dry your face.
If you want more exfoliation (and who doesn't) use a cloth or puff.

Is It Worth It? It's definitely worth it. If you have sensitive skin and need a good, cheap cleanser, this is the product for you.
