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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really nice cleanser I love this face wash, which I tried because the Thoroughly Clean was too drying for my skin. I have oily/combination skin, and this has worked well for me. I like the ingredients, and I do feel like it makes my skin more radiant.
