Customer Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. December 19, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Nothing special 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. November 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this face wash I have sensitive skin. This face wash is very gently and skin feels soft and clean. September 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. August 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fresh Face Wash Great product because's a pump bottle,a little "dab' goes a long way,fresh orangery smelling,no harsh chemicals.I would buy again. December 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! August 22, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. June 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. January 20, 2013
