Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works! I have sensitive skin and break out a lot. I have tried so many different face soaps that did not clean all the dirt and make up off. This does! The smell is abit strong, but it does not last long. My face feels clean and fresh. I use it twice a day am and pm. IT WORKS! I also use tree tree oil in my toner which helps stop my break outs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for acne, but makes my face oily I am one of those lucky people who has been struggling with annoying mild to moderate acne since I can remember. I was excited to use this product because of it's natural components and the great reviews. I have been using this product for a little over a month now. I'll be honest, the first 4-5 days of using this product was awful. The smell was over bearing, it burned my face, lips, and eyes, and it also made my face so greasy it was so embarrassing! Since then, I've gotten use to the smell and it doesn't burn my face. My face is smooth and it has cleared my acne well and has definitely helped prevent new acne from forming. BUT...I gave it only 4 stars because I'm still struggling with how oily it's making my face. It isn't quite as bad as it was in the beginning but still enough to be embarrassing when I look in the mirror on my break at work and see how shiny my face is. My mineral makeup doesn't stand a chance with my face being so oily. My face also feels slimy. I've tried switching to the Desert Essence Oil control moisturizer, going without moisturizer and I rinsing my face multiple times when I wash it but it still gets very oily. It's a little frustrating because I typically don't have that oily of skin. I'm bummed because this is the first acne product that really seems to do the trick for my acne! However, having a oily face is almost worse for me than having the acne. I will have to switch to using something else in the morning and continuing this product just in the evenings before bed. Hopefully I will continue to see great results. Definitely worth a try though for someone looking for acne relief.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Acne Fighter I am 22 and have always had acne. I have tried SO many products to try to treat it. I recently switched to this and within 3 days my acne began to clear up! It has been a week now and it is getting clearer every day! I am so happy and also so surprised as nothing I have EVER tried has worked so quickly. I can't wait to see further changes in my skin!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful! I cannot even count how many acne treatments I had tried before switching to Desert Essence. I had gone through many expensive treatments with dermatologists and estheticians but who know that the answer to my skin problems was this super affordable face wash! I used this in combination with the tea tree oil cleansing pads and moisturizer everyday for the last 3 years and I have had clear skin since. I would highly recommend these products to anyone who is tired of having acne!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tremendous product. Several years back I was looking for a cleanser for my hands. I was having problems for quite some time with cracking hands and fingers even in the summer.I was totally amazed by this face wash. No more cracking hands and it removes the toughest grime and grease. I also use it for a shower.
