Great value Can't beat the price for great product. Lasts forever. Thanks Swanson! March 11, 2014
My favorite face cleanser I'm a devoted user of Kiehls but when it comes to face cleansers, this product is my favorite. It's all natural (no SLS, phthalates, etc) and makes my face the perfect amount of clean, that is, not squeaky clean and dry, but ungreasy and oil-free. Have been using this product for at least 3 years and I swear by it. I buy the 32oz refill and use it to refill the 4.0oz travel size. The 8.5oz size has a pump that doesn't dispense well.

Thoroughly clean face wash My husband and I love this face wash. I bought the refill bottle for the better value and I'm happy I did. It leaves your face feeling clean and soft, just like the product info says. August 30, 2013
excellent faical cleansing great value and high quality - love it! May 31, 2013
Wake Me Up I appreciate the convenience of this product. It rinses cleanly and does not leave any residue on the skin. I like how easily it washes off. I feel really clean when I use it - it is invigorating. May 6, 2013
Best Facial Cleanser I started using cruely-free products recently and wanted to get a mild cleanser for combination skin. I bought the Desert Essence and am very happy with the results. I was using an expensive dept store brand cleanser that was fragrance-free. But the Desert Essence has a light smell that doesn't bother me. It rinses well. It's very gentle and the price is great.Love the refill. You need to use a foam soap dispenser. March 18, 2013
