Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I would give this 10 stars if I could. This is the best face wash for sensitive skin that I have ever used (and trust me, I've tried A LOT! ). It's so hard to find good gluten free products. This cleans away my makeup and leaves my blemish prone skin clear. I use it with the Gentle Night Cream and Day Cream SPF 15 and my skin stays clear and healthy. Please NEVER discontinue this line for sensitive skin!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good stuff So far I'm loving this cleanser. It does a great job at removing my makeup. Just have to work a little bit more for eyeliner ( just like any other cleanser out there, I just don't like using an eye makeup remover). It smells citrusy-apple like and isn't too runny or too thick. You also dont' need much to wash your face, which is great :) It doesn't leave my face tight nor overally moisturized but just right. The only thing I find it does sting my eyes a little. But overall this cleanser seems to be working :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great face wash for dry skin I have continuously fell back on the Desert Essence Thoroughly Clean Face Wash with Tea Tree Oil and Awapuhi for some years now, as it works really well for keeping my skin clear, but it is borderline over-drying for my already dry facial skin. I was stoked to see that Desert Essence now has a face wash for dry/sensitive skin, I am on my first bottle and so far it's great - not over drying at all. I like that it doesn't foam as much as the thoroughly clean face wash does, but it still gets my skin nice and clean. It feels satiny smooth going on, not harsh at all - like it's providing moisture instead of stripping it. It smells good too, like apple juice. So far I couldn't say anything bad about this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent I've always used Dove soap or cetaphil cleanser. The dept. store cosmetic cleansers usually have too much fragrance for me or I can't use them on my eyes. I like to make my routine easy and have my facial cleanser sweep off the eye makeup. Whatever residue may remain, I can then easily remove with a little gentle eye makeup remover or coconut oil. I have sensitive skin so I'm very careful about products I use. I can't use anything with detergent and have to be very careful in public restrooms because their hand cleansers can cause me problems. I hadn't planned on buying this, but it came with the sensitive skin regimen offer. I was shocked at how much I like it. I've been using it on my eye area as well I don't react. It's very lovely in terms of the feel and natural scent as well. I use only fragrance free items and this is fragrance free. I guess their marketing of the system together was smart as now I'll continue to buy a product I never had an intention to use. I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality stuff! For many years I've used some of the most expensive facial cleansers out there. They all contain ingredients I could hardly pronounce. I discovered Desert Essence some years ago and used the Thoroughly Clean Face Wash with Tea Tree Oil for a couple of years. Great stuff by the way if you have oily, acne-prone skin! However, with autumn kicking in with its drier climate and winter to follow, I thought I'd do my skin a favor. The organic cleanser is awesome! Does not sting my eyes, cleanses my skin thoroughly ( I wear medium-heavy makeup), has never made me break out, it's cost effective and above all it contains only natural ingredients! What more do I want out of a cleanser?! Smells like apples & oranges, just some of the natural ingredients it contains. The scent is refreshing, especially in the morning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A really good cleanser I used the product day and night and had no problems with it at all. It smells pleasant. Isn't drippy. Good lather without being over soapy. Promises to be less expensive than the towelettes I was using before.

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!
