The ease of use for this product is great. It removes all of the makeup from my face. However, the smell is not too appealing. I would probably not buy again as I am not fond of how it smells.

Rated 5 out of 5 by smiley57 Works Great!
These things work really great and get the dead skin off. Don't really mind the tea tree oil smell but do wipe my face with warm water after using.

Well, the good news is, it cleaned my face. The bad news: the liquid on the pad STINKS! Literally. The odor is so strong it is barely tolerable. And the FUMES actually sent me into a coughing fit. Gag city! I threw away the remaining 49 pads.

My son uses it and continues to use it. That says something in itself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RenegadeXan These are so handy
These pads small so fresh, although their self life is limited because they will eventually dry out, they are the best thing to clean you skin for a specific spot want you don't wanna take a shower just because one part of your body is dirty. Face/arms pits, or any other part, I used 2 to 4 pads and it relieved the dirt ever time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by nontoxicgirly Effective but burns
I love how you can see how much dirt is left behind on my face even after I thought I've washed thorougly....my only complaint is that this does burn the face a bit....but at least I know all traces of dirt has been removed.

Been using product for years. Really like how product doesn't have chemicals and other non wanted acids. Pads effectively show how much debris is cleansed. Also enjoy fresh clean feeling of the tea tree oil.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TheNewYorker great for facial cleansing
I think this is an excellent product to clean your face after a long day at work and/or from being outside for hours. This cleaning pad product with natural tea tree oil keeps my face clean and takes off excess oil and dirt that you can't see with the naked eye.

Very strong, over powering tea tree oil smell. Made me sick. I am returning this item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MOMofFIVE Best price around!
My 17 year old and nearly 13 year old sons use these on a daily basis, huge help in keeping their faces clear. As well, i use them after I wash my face and am always amazed at how much the pad picks up. Can't find them cheaper than what Swanson has them for, excellent price!

Rated 3 out of 5 by shaniqua2520 gets the job done, but smells quite strong
Gets the job done, but the strong smell was overpowering. I've used tea tree oil shampoos in the past that didn't have an odor nearly as intense as these cleansing pads. Use caution if you are sensitive to strong scents.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Samantha Bonebrake Adult Acne Solved!
With a mixture of my body changing and hormones my skin went from a fresh faced teenager to a red, angry, irritated land of trouble. I was using pro-active twice a day just to keep my new outbreaks at bay. I used these pads years ago when it was the most convenient way to keep my oil away throughout the day and hadn't rediscovered them until about a month ago when a friend with similar issues started to see improvement using these pads. You wouldn't believe my face now, If I had photos to share I would. I highly recommend these for anyone with blemishes or oily skin. The amount of dirt that comes off in the morning, afternoon and at night even though I try to not touch my face at all during the day is remarkable! It took about a month for me to see a difference but I am sure glad I didn't give up, now taking these around the world with me while I travel and to maintain clean fresh skin!

This is one of my "must have" face products, I cannot do without them! Not too oily, not too dry, just perfect. Cleans my pores and helps prevent/heal blemishes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Barbie Little to overwwhelming for me
Bought these to take on Vacation to cleanse with and was surprised how overwhelming the alcohol was in them, really burn my face, was surprised because I love the cleanser I use daily from you and was hoping for the same results, I see it gets great results, but I think maybe these are for someone who has blemish problems, not for sensitive to normal skin.

These things made my face super oily and gross....I think it is because of the alcohol in them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by sailortaurus Burns and leaves hives
I really wanted to try the scrub pads, so i bought a container. i used it for a week and a half. and my forehead began feeling rough and scaly. i took a break from then i noticed the rest of my face started feeling that scaliness and then my forehead broke out in hives. I wanted to try it again thinking that it might be too strong so i added some witch hazel to it. I waited a long time to try it again, and when i did, i only did one day. 2 days later that same scaliness. An allergic reaction? Maybe so. But i really think the percentage of the tea tree should be toned down more.

Amazing little pads! I like these for when my face feel like it needs a little more TLC, like breaking out due to that time or I've been a little lazy with my skincare regimen. The only this is that the scent is a little strong for me. So I dilute it with a very small amount of water and then cleanse my face with it. I then let it sit for a little bit and then rinse off like it says. Follow with toner and moisturizer. I'm so happy, I can't wait to try the cleanser.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alyssa55 Amazing Product
I've been using these for about 2 weeks along with the Thoroughly Clean face wash. I can honestly say my skin has never been clearer! The smell is kind of overwhelming at first, but I have grown to love it. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anna_Rose Best thing for my skin.
This is the most amazingly effective stuff I've ever used. I use these pads at night and the Thoroughly Clean Original wash in the mornings and my skin has cleared up so much in the passed few weeks. I have a minor zit every now and then but it's gone in two days because of these products. I would definitely recommend them to those prone to breakouts. However, be warned, the smell is INTENSE. It's so strong that the first time I used it I couldn't keep from coughing. It's not pleasant but it's more that worth it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Clearskinsomeday Cleans Great
I bought these in a grocery store just to try them. I love how clean they get my face! Unbelievable! I have cystic acne and also get several small whiteheads a week. These pads clean well but on open acne, lookout! They sting incredibly! I actually usually like a little sting to know something is working but this has quite a strong sting. The smell was a lot at first, a bit like turpentine smell...but I have grown to enjoy it because I know it is actually organic and all natural. I have also purchased the face wash, blemish stick, and lotion. My face has not completely cleared up after three weeks, but I feel cleaner, fresher, and hope that it will get clearer with time. Thanks Desert Essence!

Rated 5 out of 5 by NikNak1229 WONDERFUL PRODUCT!
I'm almost 30 and my skin still won't cooperate. I get blemishes all too often for my liking, and have tried countless products that have never worked. Since using these tea tree oil cleansing pads, I have noticed a substantial difference in my skin. I simply use one wipe a day, during lunch at my desk. It gets the grime off my face mid-day between my morning and evening face wash. Certainly reduces oil and I can see the dirt on the pad. Also, they smell so great that my office smells wonderful for the rest of the day! I even had a jar for 2+ years that still had pads left in it, and they were still moist and usable after all that time. I recommend this product to anyone battling blemishes & wishing to reduce an oily complexion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bexy146 Best Facial Cleansing Pads
These are the best Facial Cleansing Pads minus the strong smell. I love my complexion since using the pads. I'm 29 yrs old and have oily, yet sensitive skin & I'm always afraid to try new facial products. But last month I began using these pads in the morning and at night & my complexion is so beautiful. Yes, the smell is quite powerful, but I'm getting used to it. I love my new complexion and that's all that matters to me!
