Rated 5 out of 5 by from Results overnight! :) I tried Desert Essence organic cleanser and I loved it but I needed something for my hormonal adult acne lol. I bought this face wash from my work in New Mexico and I love it! I love the smell and the way it feels on my skin. I used to have really bad acne so I was left with scarring and the Desert Essence organic cleanser really helped fade my scars it took a few months to see results but it helped tremendously. Now I am in love with this cleanser and hoping in a few weeks I can purchase the oil control lotion. I use the kinder to skin tea tree oil and jojoba oil at night. I love Desert Essence products so much! And another thing I don't know why people were complaining about the watery consistency because it foams up real well and gets deep down in the pores of my face. I could care less about the watery consistency and the pumps not so bad. If you cup your hand before you squirt then its really manageable. Trust me people nothing has worked for my acne now I can wear just concealer on a daily basis :) I stopped using foundation and switched up to light coverage BB creams. Thank you so much Desert Essence.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the best! I've been using this cleanser since 2001. I have really oily, acne-prone skin and this is the ONLY cleanser that makes it feel clean. I love that it's natural, ph balanced, and doesn't test on animals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have used this Awesome cleanser for over 6 years! I have used this awesome cleanser for over 6 years! I did stop using it a year ago I was tempted to the "Dark Side" by empty promises on a more expensive product. I started getting a rash and a sore on my lip, at the time I did not think it was the new product. Went to a Dermatologist after 5 months of rash, itching and pain. He prescribed medication, it did not stop it. Finally 4 months ago he did an allergy test. I was allergic to a preservative/chemical "Methylisothiazolinone" and guess what my "new" cleanser had it in it. I went back to my trust Desert Essence Thoroughly Clean Face Wash (they never use that preservative in any of the Desert Essence products!) and my face is my own again! Will never change again! I buy the huge size and now have 2 32 oz cleansers sitting in my cupboard! So the moral of the story is Desert Essence Products are safe for ALL of us to use!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean Skin I have decided to give products a try that are less chemically produced. I started using this product as soon as I received it. The smell is something to get use to but, if you can get past the smell you will have clean and clear skin. The product is watery but, lathers up very well.I had a few little breakouts before I bought this and this cleared them right up! I will purchase again!
