Olay Professional Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System Review

I purchased the Olay Professional Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System almost a week ago at Walmart. I'm pretty sure it was $28.99. I've wanted a Clarisonic for so long but I can't afford it! So I've been wanting to try the Olay system. It came with everything that was needed, the brush head, system, batteries & sample size cleanser. The first thing I noticed was the size. It's small & light. I would compare it to about the size of my hand. I like that it's smaller, it's more convenient to use in the shower. That's another great thing, it is waterproof so you can take it into the tub with you. It has 2 settings a high setting & a low setting.

I was worried about the brush being too abrasive. I have combination skin, my T Zone is oily, but my cheeks and chin are very sensitive. This brush is not rough at all. In fact, I find myself wishing it was a little more exfoliating. I'm not too fond of sample cleanser. First off, I think it stinks, It has a very medicated smell. It's more of a gel consistency but it does have a gritty texture. I've used the cleanser once or twice, but I will most likely use either my Biore Ice Cleanser or L'Oreal 360 Exfoliating Scrub (which I love!) with the system.
I wish it had a charger instead of batteries because that's kind of a pain in the ass, but overall I love it. You can pick up 2 replacement brush heads at Walmart for $9.97. If you are looking for a great (and cheap!) alternative to the Clarisonic, I'd recommend this cleansing system.
Have you tried this Cleansing System?
