Gentle Nourishing Organic Cleanser
So Far So Good
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.

Love this face wash
I have sensitive skin. This face wash is very gently and skin feels soft and clean.

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.

Great Facial Cleanser
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!

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.

LOVE this Product
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.

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.

Liked it at first
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

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!

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.

terrible for dry skin
I have dry flaky skin and this wash has made it worse. My face is super tight and stripped of all oil every time I finsh washing it. I'm returning this product immediately.

BEST CLEANSER EVER
I've recently moved onto organic products, and this not only makes my face feel fresh but LOOK fresh! The scent is also great because it smells like oranges but isn't too strong. love it!!!!!!!!

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.

Soothing but caused breakouts
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.

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!!

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 :)

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.

Another product I love from Desert Essence. I have mild rosacea and this cleanser is great for me - very gentle and pleasant to use!

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.

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.
