Natural Tea Tree Oil Facial Cleansing Pads - Original
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.

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

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.

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.

Desert Essence Cleansing Pads
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.

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.

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!

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.

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

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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!

I never leave home without them.
I've been using the facial pads for about a year now to refresh and cleanse my face but have a new appreciation for them since starting menopause. Started getting hardcore hot flashes about 2 months ago and have been miserable. The only relief from these heinous episodes are my Tea Tree Oil Facial Cleansing Pads. I have a jar in my medicine cabinet, one in my car, one in my purse, and one in my refrigerator at home and at work. I whip these babies out whenever I feel the heat. Try putting them in the refrigerator for an even more refreshing, cool feeling.

I started using these pads and after just 2 weeks I have noticed a major difference in my skin. It looks radiant, clean and feels soft and healthy. It has cleared up my acne and helped to prevent new break outs. The smell is very strong so after wiping my face with the pad I wait about a minute and then I splash my face with cool water. I use one first thing in the morning and one at night before going to bed.

Refreshing and Satisfied!
I use the Tea Tree Oil Facial Cleansing Pads on a daily basis. I have allergies to dust and I was surprised how dirty my face can get when I go out shopping or somewhere where there is a lot of facial contact (kissing checks, etc). I use it before I wash my face generally to get off excess dirt but sometimes I use it AFTER I was my face and I was surprised to see the residue left after cleansing with soap. I even told one of my friends about this product because she is always picking at her hair. I suggested it because the product is so refreshing and makes your face feel comfortable. I use it on my neck or anywhere that I might have itch and it stops once I cleanse it. Although I am on a fixed income I think it is well worth the money!

My secret weapon
I love this product! Bought my first jar at [...] (now I'm bummed that they stopped carrying it), but been using it for a month and my skin is glowing. It helped me with a recent breakout. Two wipes of the pad and the next morning my zit had shrunk, lost its redness and was nearly unnoticeable. I got my hubby using it and he likes the way it makes his skin feel fresh and it helps calm his skin after a shave. These little pads are my secret weapon for great, fresh, glowing skin!

My key to great skin.
The first time I used this product I was in vegas ..and my stepsister had it with her. I'm very skeptical of a lot of skincare..but when I used it that one time I was hooked. I went home to CA. And ordered 2 containers. I use one every morning when I wake up and every night before bed. Each time I use one people will tell me that my skin is glowing, that it looks great. Thankyou desert essence!
