Rated 5 out of 5 by from I’ve tried everything I’m 30 and have had acne since I hit puberty. I’ve used prescription medication, multi-step acne kits, and expensive high-end products with constant disappointment. I have recently changed my beauty routine to all natural products and I cannot believe how well this face wash works. There has been a noticeable difference to my skin in just one week including an improvement to some dark spots and scarring. This is a must try if you’ve tried everything else.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shiny dry skin. Made my whole face shiny and dry. My T-zone was shiny and my the rest of my face was dry and flaky. Went to return it and can only return 30 days from purchase date and it took a week to get here and then I barely had time to try it to see if it worked for me or not then had to pay shipping on top of that to return it, but I would have had to pay 2 day shipping to make sure it got back to them on time which is $14.95. NOT WORTH IT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I don't know what I'd do if they discontinued this I've been using the Desert Essence original face wash for years now. It's one of the few scented products I've tried that doesn't break me out in spots every time I use it. Seriously, if they change or (horror!) discontinue this product, I will be very, very upset, and probably a lot greasier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Way To Face The Day Starting my day off by washing my face with this wash is the best way to do it. I love the fresh clean scent of this wash and it makes my face feel so clean and revived every time I use it. And it never dries out my skin. My face isn't overly oily, I actually have pretty normal skin and I still love this product! #PerfectMatch

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cleanser I have used this for over 2 years. I have sensitive skin and the minimal occasional breakout, but this cleanser keeps my skin clean and clear. I use it every morning and it does not dry my skin out. Absolutely a must have in my skin care regimen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, love, love I've been using this for almost a year now and am obsessed. I was brand loyal to a "much more expensive brand" for over ten years and Desert Essence has officially won me over completely. I love the way it makes my skin feel and look. My pores are smaller, my skin looks vibrant, and my acne breakouts have been under control. I even gifted Desert Essence products to all the females in my family for Christmas. I'm a believer. This stuff is amazing!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best face wash ever! Have been using this product for years! We have two small children and love to use this thorough, but gentle wash on their dirty little faces. We buy the large re-fill bottle to accommodate our frequent use! Highly recommend this product!! The smell brings me back every time!
