Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great at First But Very Drying I bought this product a week and a half ago and was excited from all the good reviews it had. It has a smell similar to orange creamsicles which is very pleasant. I had no problems at first but then I started to notice a slight burning sensation but ignored it because my skin is fussy sometimes. After a while I noticed a tight feeling and some peeling around my t-zone. It could just be my skin and how I react to the product as many people are happy with this facewash. I am fond of other products from Desert Essence, but this one just isn't for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smells of Oatmeal Goodness. I received my Gentle Nourishing Organic Cleanser this afternoon, and it works absolutely fabulously. I have combination to normal skin (occasionally oily T zone) and this cleanser evenly cleans and moisturizes. If you're thinking of getting this but don't want to because of the price, then it is truly your loss. This cleanser is like no other. I've tried everything from drugstore to Burt's Bees and I found my true match, Desert Essence. Burt's Bees' facial cleansers left my face dry, unusually tight, and begging for moisture. With Desert Essence, my face went for 30 minutes after use still feeling relieved, silky soft, moisturized, and overall amazing before I decided to slather on my DE Tea Tree Oil Skin Treatment. The bottle provides you with a lot of product. One pump, which is not a lot, covered my entire face. I would recommend pumping it into your palm, because it pumped onto my fingers and seemed to soak through the cracks (I thought I lost it, I was like this will never work for my whole face!), but this isn't a hassle. If it gets smeared on your fingers, just rub it into your skin, it will still suffice. Before I rubbed it on my skin, it smelled like oranges, which I find common with natural products, so I was rather disappointed (I hate oranges.) But, as I rubbed it into my face, I must admit it smells like fresh baked oatmeal cookies with milk and honey. It doesn't smell of chemicals like the other products! A must buy for people with sensitive skin, prone to breakouts, or for people who are on the look out for legit cleansers! Summary: one pump does magic, smells like oatmeal cookies, doesn't dry your face out, leaves face shockingly smooth!, truly cleans pores.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Absolutely love it! Decided to venture into the realm of natural and organic products and I am very happy with everything I purchased from Desert Essence. It is affordable and the organic cleanser AND the facial scrub I got are both gentle and perfect for my skin. (Also loving the toothpaste, deodorant and face moisturizer). I am thankful that such affordable and quality products exist as my initial research on finding organic products led me to believe I would have to spend a ridiculous amount on them that I was unwilling to. Desert Essence is fabulous:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Refreshing and gentle I purchased this a month ago and am very happy with the product and the way it makes my face feel. I need to use a gentle cleanser on my face and this works great! It has a nice aroma and makes my skin feel very soft. I have even noticed a reductions in breakouts, but that might be a coincidence . . . Although I am also using the cleansing pads at night before bed. My skin seems brighter and almost "glows". Another great result is a reduction in redness. Overall, all of the results using this product are positive. I have already purchased a second and third bottle for guest bathrooms so that my guests can experience the same feeling of luxury that I have!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for sensitive skin! I purchased this in desperation, trying to find something that would help with chronic redness I'd developed from years of harsh soaps and toners....and it worked! The redness is almost completely gone now--just a small area on one cheek that's still pink. In addition, my adult acne is much improved and my whole face looks brighter and healthier--almost as good as it did when I was 30 years old, which is amazing, considering I'm actually 60. So I heartily recommend this for anyone who has redness, acne, or aging skin...especially since Environmental Working Group gives this a good rating in its toxicity guide, and Desert Essence is cruelty-free.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great smell and suitable for sensitive/blemishes I bought this cleanser because I adored the apple juice base in the ingredients. I have very sensitive/blemish prone skin so I tend to look for foods that I can put on my face to help with that. I love how it makes my skin feel and it does not cause break outs. I noticed the apple juice helps with my blemishes and I use desert essence jojoba oil for moisture. I love this product but I think I will switch back to the thoroughly clean cleanser.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Liked it at first I wanted to like this so badly I used it for awhile but it's extremely drying and I couldn't take it anymore. Especially while being on retin-a

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gentle Facewash-I love it! I have very sensitive skin and this is a great gentle face wash. It leaves my skin soft and clean. I love the ingredients, overall a wonderful product. My only gripe about the cleanser is the pump on the bottle. Each pump dispensed way too much cleanser, more than double the amount that I needed. I felt like I was wasting it, and the level of cleanser in the bottle was going down way too fast! I found another cap to fit the bottle, where I could just squeeze out the right amount, no waste. Yay!
