I am trying to limit toxic ingredients, so I tried this. Hopefully it is not harmful. I do like it. I am sensitive to scents and this does not bother me and rinses away. It dries my skin a little but not too bad. I will buy again.

This product is not harmful or damaging but doesn't clean very well either. it feels more like applying a vegetable mass on your face than anything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by almondgirl Nice product
As facial cleansers go I would rate this a 9/10 as I find it a touch drying for my aging skin! Leaves the skin refreshed, clean and soft.

I have recently started the process of "cleaning up" our skin care products and Desert Essence Gentle Nourishing Organic Cleanser is perfect. I have sensitive skin and this works amazingly well, my skin feels clean without being dry which is important to me. I have already reordered!

Rated 4 out of 5 by angiet I have been using this face 1 to 2 times a day for the past month. So far it has been great! I have sensitive skin that is dry/normal and so far I have not had any negative reactions and I don't think I will. It is very different from the soapy, sudsy traditional face washes I am use to, but definitely got use to it quickly. It was so worth the switch from chemical filled washes to this natural type! It has a citrusy smell, not bad at all.

Tried this without anyone giving a review.. and let me tell you what, I am so pleased with how gentle it is, the soft feel to my skin when I am done and the fact that it is organic! I would suggest that anyone looking for all this and more, give it a try.

Rated 2 out of 5 by pixielocksandkneehighsock Great at First But Very Drying
I bought this product a week and a half ago and was excited from all the good reviews it had. It has a smell similar to orange creamsicles which is very pleasant. I had no problems at first but then I started to notice a slight burning sensation but ignored it because my skin is fussy sometimes. After a while I noticed a tight feeling and some peeling around my t-zone. It could just be my skin and how I react to the product as many people are happy with this facewash. I am fond of other products from Desert Essence, but this one just isn't for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nein Smells of Oatmeal Goodness.
I received my Gentle Nourishing Organic Cleanser this afternoon, and it works absolutely fabulously. I have combination to normal skin (occasionally oily T zone) and this cleanser evenly cleans and moisturizes.
If you're thinking of getting this but don't want to because of the price, then it is truly your loss. This cleanser is like no other. I've tried everything from drugstore to Burt's Bees and I found my true match, Desert Essence. Burt's Bees' facial cleansers left my face dry, unusually tight, and begging for moisture. With Desert Essence, my face went for 30 minutes after use still feeling relieved, silky soft, moisturized, and overall amazing before I decided to slather on my DE Tea Tree Oil Skin Treatment.
The bottle provides you with a lot of product. One pump, which is not a lot, covered my entire face. I would recommend pumping it into your palm, because it pumped onto my fingers and seemed to soak through the cracks (I thought I lost it, I was like this will never work for my whole face!), but this isn't a hassle. If it gets smeared on your fingers, just rub it into your skin, it will still suffice.
Before I rubbed it on my skin, it smelled like oranges, which I find common with natural products, so I was rather disappointed (I hate oranges.) But, as I rubbed it into my face, I must admit it smells like fresh baked oatmeal cookies with milk and honey. It doesn't smell of chemicals like the other products!
A must buy for people with sensitive skin, prone to breakouts, or for people who are on the look out for legit cleansers!
Summary: one pump does magic, smells like oatmeal cookies, doesn't dry your face out, leaves face shockingly smooth!, truly cleans pores.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ellehannah 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 shoppe 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 Josette 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 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.

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 beth11 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 KatyTX 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.

smells and feels great, happy to see this from an organic product! my only critique is that it doesnt remove makeup very well, so i suggest using a makeup remover beforehand.

I have sensitive skin and this product helped moisturize my skin but I think the coconut oil in it has been causing my cheeks to break out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lia 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.

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 doll 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 :)
