very effective for acne-prone skin but avoid contact with eyes

Posted by 5757323988771074013 on Oct 25, 2016

this "cleanser" has a very liquid consistency and has a very strong tea tree astringent smell. it almost smells medicinal. however, it is very effective on acne prone skin. I use this product on my face as well as on my chest and body. however, be very careful when applying this cleanser to your face. AVOID CONTACT WITH EYES!!! otherwise, it will burn them. overall, I must say that my chest and back acne totally cleared up within 1 month of using this product once a day every day. the proven results have impressed me so much that I have been using this product for many years now. just love it. also, as for price and size of the bottle, you get a very economical size for a super affordable price. I hope that the price never increases. xoxo

Perfect for all skin types!

Posted by 4673249711962253486 on Sep 26, 2016

My entire family uses it. We have dry skin types and also oily, acne-prone skin types in my house. Yet, we all manage to share the product together! It is non-irritating to sensitive skin users like myself, and has helped me to control my acne outbreaks (asides from hormonal/diet outbreaks). Highly recommended!

This Stuff Works!

Posted by 5168859476055929577 on Sep 18, 2016

My experience with Desert Essence, Thoroughly Clean Face Wash has been absolutely delightful. First off when I read the ingredient list I was impressed with the all natural ingredients instead of the usual found on most products with scientific wording full of chemicals that are abrasive. That was not the case here... worked really well and gentle on the skin. It's concentrated so you don't need to use much to get a great wash. It doesn't smell pretty but it works like a charm to clean, clear, and for me, my skin responded very well. It was like my skin was saying "You finally discovered what I need". The first day I tried it started to work my pores loved it. The second day I was like wow my skin looks clearer. The third day I was hooked and telling my husband and daughter about my new found discovery. My skin is so smooth, clear, and soft. If you want a fresh face that's clean, clear, and soft but not tight and itchy this product is a must have. Especially if you like to wear makeup you need this to wash you face with because it works from the inside out. The Tea Tree Oil along with the other natural ingredients work together in harmony. Look at this product as treatment for your skin. It WORKS! My daughter had some acne on her forehead that she could not get rid of so I let her use my Desert Essence Thoroughly Clean Face Wash and in 2 days she could not believe it was almost gone and now she has no pimples. I talked my husband into trying it on his legs with psoriasis. The creme and spray his doctor gave him did nothing but dry out his skin making it worse. He tried it (Dessert Essence-Thoroughly Clean face Wash) for about a week and his skin on his legs are smooth as a baby's butt. I'm serious (Dramatic Results) actually calmed down the psioriasis and smoothed it out. No more dry and rough but clean, smoother, and soft on his legs and feet. It's amazing the results you can get when you find the right product for your skin type/condition. In fact, this product does exactly what it promises for a great price.
