Product Review: Olay Oil Minimizing Toner

Reviewer: Cinnamon Kitten

Brand: Olay
Name: : Oil Minimizing Toner
Size: 212 ml / 7.2 fl oz
Price: approx. $6 CAD

Many years ago, I went on a hunt for a great toner and found one in the Neutrogena Oil-Free Toner, which I haven't deviated from in over 10 years (some habits are hard to give up). So, whenever I try a new toner, I can't help but compare it to my favrourite to see how it measures up.

Now, in the past few years, I've also discovered how great Olay products are, so I was pretty excited to try the Olay Oil Minimizing Toner.

To Purr About:
- toner is very effective in removing make-up and leaving skin feeling clean
- make-up came off easily
- not too drying on skin

Claws Out:
- in the bottle, the product has a soapy smell
- during use, the product as a very strong alcohol smell

Final Comments:
All in all, the toner really does the job well. It removes dirt and makeup quickly and easily, without too much tugging. It also left my skin feeling very fresh and clean, without feeling too stripped or dry.

The only problem I have with this product is that it has alcohol in it (which is weird since it doesn't dry out my skin like other alcohol-based products). The alcohol-smell is pretty overpowering.

I don't think that the performance of this product is great enough that I can overlook the alcohol content.

Rating (out of 5):
