great for acne prone skin
Posted by Reviewer3020750 on May 25, 2009
I have been using this off and on for many years, and when my skin breaks out this is the first thing I run to. I started using it originally when I had a nasty breakout of cystic acne, and after using this, and spot treating w/ DE 100% tea tree oil, I've never had a recurrence of it. I have dry skin, and though I do find this slightly drying if I follow w/ DE daily essential moisturizer it works fine.

Love how natural the ingredients are. Does not irritate my skin and all and leaves me feeling clean and fresh. I wear a lot of makeup too (eye and face) and it works well on getting all of it off too. I got the Oily & Combination Skin because my husband has oily skin (whereas mine is on the dry side) but I don't feel like it is terribly overdrying even on my skin. Great price too.
Great face wash.

I first got the packaging with the pump. It lasted for a year and I loved it so much that I decided I should get the economy packaging to refill. It is amazing, not drying at all.Basically is totally hydrating, your face feels smooth like a baby's bum afterwards. It smells strongly of tea tree, which I like. It has a really watery consistance, so don't be fooled and pump twice, you only need half a pump. I use it with my muslin cloth daily and I love it. I will repurchase!

I have very sensitive skin and I've been using this for years, really helps prevent break outs but doesn't dry out your skin.
This Stuff Works!

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.

Ideal for after-workout in summer to reduce oiliness, very refreshing. Might be too drying for some skin types. More liquid than gel in texture.
Love this stuff...

I was very glad to find a large refill bottle of this product so that I don't have to waist those little pump bottles. While this is sold as "face wash" (and it is perfect for any complexion), my daughter and I use it all over our bodies, especially in the summer heat, and it also makes great hand wash with a natural antimicrobial effect. Smells nice and washes off thoroughly.

I love this cleanser! I use it once per day (because my skin would get dry otherwise). It effectively removes all makeup and dirt, lathers nicely, and rinses clean without leaving my skin feeling very tight. Buying the big 32oz bottle is the best deal hands down, once you know you love this cleanser.
