Natural Cleansing Pads with Tea Tree Oil 4.6 5 30 33
It really works. My son uses it and continues to use it. That says something in itself. March 31, 2014
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. November 1, 2013
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. September 14, 2013
fun very good cleansing product but burns your face a little August 25, 2013
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. April 2, 2013
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. Don't overuse. April 4, 2012
smelly,but seems to clean i think it smells like rubbing alohol mixed with dirt.my family member thinks it smells like paint thinner.it does seem to get the dirt off.i have to do sections of my face while holding my breath.wait til that section dries then continue.its pretty strong,but it gets the excesse dirt and oil off.i didnt noticce it leaving my skin dry.which i though it would.i will be ordering somemore. August 17, 2011
strong odor Very strong, over powering tea tree oil smell. Made me sick. I am returning this item. May 11, 2010
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! March 24, 2010
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. January 24, 2010
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.  February 19, 2014
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! November 19, 2011
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. August 25, 2011
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! August 8, 2011
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. August 1, 2011
Amazing! 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. June 13, 2011
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! November 13, 2010
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! October 30, 2010
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! October 26, 2010
Best for your skin! I've been using this product for the past year and this is perfect for my skin! My face loves it and it feel very refreshing and cool. What I also love about this product is the ingredients that it has. It has only natural and organic things in it from plant extracts and leaves and I think this is very important for a product that you apply on your face. I use it as a toner after i wash my face to remove any dirt or makeup that is left. I love it and I bought it already for a few friends as gifts! October 25, 2010
tes tree oil facial cleansing pads by de I love how these pads work.. they really treat my facial skin with care.. my skin looks great and younger....love them... October 22, 2010
Love at first use Wow. I'm in love. This is the product I've been looking for and it actually lives up to its description. It's hard to trust a label but Desert Essence doesn't lie, it is my new best friend. I trust it fully. Super soft, gentle on my sensitive skin even with the strong aroma from the tea tree and really does exfoliate!!! I get fresh results instantaneously, so affordable and smells divine. My skin says thank you, thank you, thank you. October 18, 2010
Never go to bed without it! I use Desert Essence cleansing pads every morning,mid-day,and at night before bed. I have found that not only does this product prevent break-outs,it leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh. I have looked for 15+ yrs for a product to prevent break-outs,and for something that is not harsh on my skin. Desert Essence Tea Tree Oil cleansing facial pads are a product that I can honestly say is that product that I have been looking for. Not only do they work great,make your skin feel fresh,they smell great,too! Thank you Desert Essence! October 12, 2010
Holy Grail product - does what it says! This product is nothing short of amazing. I have had acne (including cystic acne) on my face and body since I was 12 years old (now 32) and only regret that I didn't start using these until a couple of months ago. I use these after cleansing my face, either after a shower or at night after I wash my face and these pads take all of the residue and makeup off of my face, leaving the skin radiant and glowing. I also use these for body acne and, when used consistently, they are the most effective product I've found for treating it. The only disadvantages would be that 1) the oils can be slightly drying on the skin (I usually leave it on my face for several minutes and then rinse and moisturize) and 2) the strong smell, but it disappates quickly. These will not deter me from repurchasing this product indefinitely. Please never stop making these! They have made a huge difference for my skin. Thanks! October 11, 2010
Great for traveling Your face will feel so good and soft, you can not imagine what your face is covered with after a day of work. Great product and great when you are traveling. October 4, 2010
