For years I used antibacterial soap to wash my face. I would occasionaly try a facewash but, for one reason or another, I did not like them so, I always end up going back to soap.

I bought this on a whim and I now love it. I like that it lathers like soap and gets rid of the oil, dirt and makeup on my face. It is also easy to rinse off. It leaves my face feeling clean without the dry feeling. I'm on my second bottle.

Maybe this was not really suited for my skin type; I range from combination to straight up oily, depending on the time of year. However I couldn't even get around to finishing the bottle, which I will try to do if the product is bearable, even if it doesn't completely suit me.
This is a clear gel, smells nice and kind of lathers. My skin never felt clean after using this though. It felt as if I'd only used water. Didn't even feel refreshing at all. Needless to say it also made no difference to the appearence of my skin whatsoever.
I kept it around for some time, trying to at least finish it, but eventually it went to the bin.

I think it's a new range from Olay - Skin adapt, meant for people with combination skin (not drying out the already dry parts and not making the oily parts too oily either). Well, the idea is really good but to be honest so far very few products have managed to stand up to the promiss. I have oily/normal combination skin and so far the Skin adapt wash has been pretty gentle yet effective. But I see how it can be too drying for girls with dry skin. It's quite foaming (I prefer foaming cleansers) with a pleasant smell (beware, girls with sensitive skin!). It cleans pretty well too. Though I have to wash my face twice if I am using Revlon colorstay but that's not anything extraordinary so I won't deduct points for that.
Overall a nice and cheap cleanser (I think I paid around Eur 6 for the 150 ml tube).
I have deducted 1 lippie for packaging because I prefer pump bottles.
Would buy it again.
