Customer Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 135 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Irritated Face, Terrible Smell This product smells like an industrial cleaner. It did not work at all and left my face extremely irritatied immediately after use. Steer clear of this product !!! January 6, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by I have only used one bottle of this particular cleanser. It does the job,but it is not my favorite and I probably wouldn't choose it again. The dispenser is difficult to use. October 26, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Leaves skin sticky, pump clogs This left my skin with a sticky residue, making me feel like I needed to clean my face with another wash. The pump on the bottle is also terribly inconvenient because it clogs and makes a mess. July 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it!! This cleanser is awesome! Has a strong tea tree oil smell which I love (but doesn't linger on skin) and gets your skin squeaky clean. Everyone was right on the pump, it goes everywhere but your hand! I switched over to an empty foaming hand soap container and it now works beautifully! I gave some to my sister who is now a fan! I will definitely buy more and the price is fantastic! Thanks Swansons!! p.s. I gave 4 leaves only for the packaging, hopefully the company can change out that pump! ;) June 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Product My face is sensitve and I have combination skin - oily/dry. I am so thrilled to have found this product. It has only been 2 days and I'm already seeing the difference. Thank you Swanson for carrying this product and for offering it at a great price. I purchased a pump for my sink, a pump for my shower and the refill bottle too. I want to be sure I don't run out of this!! May 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good facial cleanser I quite like this face wash. It has a unique scent which not everyone will like, but I like it. This leaves my face feeling clean and fresh, and I have no guilt as it's all natural and cruelty-free :) it's also gluten-free, which is important for me. February 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent facial cleanser Face feels invigorated and refreshed after using. A little goes a long way.... February 12, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Funky face Wash I don't like the fragrance of this product. It's also too watery. The pump didn't work right. The face wash seeped out around the neck instead of coming out of the dispenser. I finally decided to pour the contents into a hand soap dispenser I have and now use it for washing my hands. I like some of the other Dessert Essence skin and hair care products, but not this one. February 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by It lasts forever! After using store-bought foaming face washes for many years, I decided to try an all natural alternative. This stuff leaves my face feeling fresh and utterly clean. I've had this particular bottle for over four months and am not even half way through it! I would've blasted through two bottles of my old product by now. Love it and will purchase it again! February 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Deep cleans face! This is the best facial cleanser. After I use it, my face doesn't have any residue and it's ready to be moisturized. November 16, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by Returned this one I had to return this one - to me, it was unusable. I got it to wash my face in the mornings and evenings, but it really was no good for me. It doesn't remove makeup well in the slightest, smells horrific (and STRONG!) and really, really burned my eyes. (I forgot to mention that it tastes horrendous also, as somehow I accidentally got a tiny taste of it when rinsing my face off.) October 27, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Leaves Skin Really Clean & Fresh Another natural product from Swanson that I will adopt as part of my regular facial hygiene regimen. I am hopeful Swanson will come up with a body/shower wash of this caliber. Great value, smells wonderful, and leaves skin squeaky-clean. October 1, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Didn't work for me I purchase this facial wash because I was looking for something natural. Well this product didn't work for me it started to break me out. I do like the fact that it cleans your face without making it feel real tight. Overall, I think it's a great product it just didn't work for me. September 20, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good product - HOWEVER... I like this face wash a lot. My husband (sensitive dry skin) and I (combination skin) have used it every day for several years. It's a good basic cleanser, it's affordable, and it lasts a long time. I have one big complaint, though, and it's something that has been particularly annoying lately. The mechanics of the packaging is really poor. About two weeks into opening up a new bottle, the pump gets clogged and the built-up pressure makes the wash seep out around the top part of the screw-on top and onto the bathroom counter top. It's inconvenient and messy. It wouldn't be so bad if there was an easy way to unclog the pump, but there really isn't. Running hot water through it for several minutes is really the only thing that works, but it starts to clog up again after only a couple of days - it's an irritating cycle. It seems a lot of people are fans of this face wash - can't the manufacturer do us all a favor and fix this problem? September 15, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by amazing product :) very good for your skin August 30, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by maybe good for some I didn't care for the smell seemed overall a quality product June 20, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Like it a LOT First purchase of this product and I like it a lot...will purchase it again. April 24, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Cleanser! When my previous cleanser had it's formula changed, it threw my skin into a tailspin. I crossed my fingers when I ordered this hoping I would find relief and after less than one week of use, I am a happy camper. This is a great cleanser! I would agree that there is a fairly strong scent and when you look at the list of ingredients, you can understand why. There is a lot of great stuff in here that makes me feel like I'm being pampered at a spa. The liquid does tend to squirt out of the spout uncontrollably so try to aim for the palm of your hand instead of the fingers. Even this won't stop me from reordering because it is still a great value at this price. I do recommend a moisturizer after cleansing. In the evening I use Swanson's clear complexion cream. In the morning, Swanson's vitamin K cream works great for me! February 18, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by I've been using this for 6 years I have very oily skin and would easily get clogged pores often. I love this cleanser because of how gentle but yet VERY effective it is! I have tried MANY other products for a number of years and once I came across this I have had no reason to look anymore. Very satisfied, especially for the price here on Swanson's! February 3, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by SMELL THE SMELL IS STRONG,BUT, THE FACE FEELS VERY REFRESHING !! February 2, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by this is the best feeling liq soap will by it again for sure February 2, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ahhhh. Feels so nice! Makes my face feel oh-so soft. And it doesn't dry this old skin of mine out, either! The scent of the tea tree oil is a bit strong at first (I kinda like it, tho--makes me think, "clean"), but it does not linger. Also, it is thin and it shoots out of the dispenser, so be ready! ;) December 13, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works well and can't beat the price This product works great. I have oily skin and I like how it makes my face feel. Scent is ok. It is watery, but lathers nicely. I have been using it for months and have no intentions of switching. September 14, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Surprised By Its Effectiveness I thought I'd give this product a try as I'd like to make healthier choices regarding healthcare and food for my family. After using this product for more than two weeks, I can say I'm very pleased with it and will continue its use. The smell was a little strong, and for those of us who might be a little new to this organic lifestyle, is a little odd too. The smell doesn't seem to stay on after rinsing, however, and its not really bad, just different. The product is rather thin in consistancy as another reviewer noted. Their idea of putting it in a foam dispenser is one that I'm now considering as it would be less wasteful and certainly would increase its value even further. I have combination skin and am surprised that my face gets squeaky clean with a product that has tree "oil" in it. I'm going to order more for each of my three teenage sons! It seems that Desert Essence makes reputable products. I'm going to try more. July 4, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome facewash! This facewash is great! I like the fact that it does not have any chemicals. This is by far the best price and quality for a chemical free facewash that I have found. if you have dry skin, simply add olive oil to the amount that feels right for your skin. April 29, 2011
