Pros: affordable, gel, gentle on skin, mild fragrance
Cons: runny

Clearasil Ultra Rapid Action Daily Gel Wash Cleanser has a very mild feel on the skin. The consistency is like a gel which made me very interested to purchase it and try it as well. I haven't been satisfied with my previous drugstore facial wash so I had to try this brand for the first time.  I am big on daily acne cleansers with Salicylic acids and this is just one major criteria that I look for in a facial wash. And the Clearasil cleanser has, in fact, 2% Salicylic Acid which is its active ingredient. But since it is a gel, it does not foam as much as my other facial cleansers. Since I have a combination skin type I want something that will make my face feels smooth and clean. I don't like when it feels soapy or still oily after washing. Surprisingly, it does take away all the oil on my face and actually makes my face squeaky clean. I have noticed that nose and lips area doesn't dry as well due to its mild lather. Super-foamy cleansers tend to dry up my skin and removes even my natural oils. By far the most gentle skin cleanser and at the same something that works well. I have been using it for 3 weeks now and I can see how my skin had prevented any major breakouts. I have no problem with the smell because it is really mild and subtle. I enjoy using it in the morning when I don't wear makeup. It is gentle but it definitely clears out my blemishes.  

 I wear makeup a lot. After removing them, I use this cleanser and a facial scrub to remove the dirt and any impurities on my face. It works pretty amazing because of it's rapid action on blemishes. However, I may not recommend it if you have really oily skin. It might be to light for your excessive greasy facial oils. To be honest, I was disappointed with the gel consistency. I thought it wasn't cleaning my face.The product is so runny, almost like gel with water, that whenever I apply it on my wet face the gel starts to slide on my cheeks, forehead, etc. down to my neck or even worse, the bathroom sink. I hate it when I waste so many products. The results are great but the process of using it is not as I want it to be like. I still enjoy using it sometimes when my face is really really dry.

I might still try other brands after I finish the whole bottle. Maybe it works really well but I am still looking for a better one. This is still a very promising facial cleanser that I've used so far that showed great results. The best part of it is that I never had any skin problem when I used it. This is a very skin-friendly product. I just hoped that it has a foamy lather to it. Other than that it is pretty good for a drugstore facial wash.
