Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gentle I bought this about 1 month ago. This is very gentle on my skin and not drying at all! I Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yummy Scent This is the first time trying a body specific product from Desert Essence. I have been using the Coconut Body Wash almost exclusivelyon my face because of its scent, gentleness while cleaning everything it touches. When Amazon forced Wholefoods to stop restocking it, I knew I had to turn to the company for help and locations of where to find my favorite product. Well, imagine my surprise to find out that you have other and so many products. I am so happy about this discovery even after 3 years. Including everything else had a really yummy scent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never stop offering this face wash! I was a loyal user of the Thoroughly Clean Face Wash in my younger years, but once I hit my late 30’s it was too drying. I’ve struggled for years trying to find a product that completely removed my make-up and didn’t strip my skin. Now in my mid-forties my skin was experiencing occasional breakouts and I was at my wits end. I recently purchased the Thoroughly Clean for my teenagers and they love how it started clearing their skin immediately, so I decided to see if I’d get the same results with the Gentle Nourishing, and I have. I’m so happy that I’ve found my holy grail of face washes. Please don’t ever stop making this wonderful product. I’d also love it if you’d offer it in a 32oz size as well!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've never had clearer skin TLDR: Best cleanser I've ever used for my sensitive skin. When I turned 27 I started to get acne. I grew up having a pimple or two that came once a month but all of the sudden it got worse. I used some other products before I came to this and this has been a life saver. I have sensitive skin so I'm always hesitant with trying new products but since the Desert Essence face oils and hair care products didn't cause any irritation, I thought I'd try other products of theirs. I tried the Thoroughly Clean Face Wash and it started to clear up the acne but then the second bottle I received dried out my skin so badly that I felt the need to change. I'm only on my first bottle but this worked! This cleared up everything and I've never had clearer skin. I use it once a day with the Blemish Touch Stick, Balancing Face Oil and Organic Jojoba Oil.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beauty enhancer This is my all time favorite facial wash, not only does it smell heavenly!! But it seriously is gentle, nurturing and bad to the bone effective. I don’t wear makeup so I really rely on my skin care products to take care of me and put my best face forward. And this seriously does that
