Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Moisturizer I love the Desert Essence Daily Essential Moisturer. I makes my skin feel silky soft, and Swanson's prices are the best!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing product from good company I have used other products from Desert Essence and this is the first one that has disappointed me. First, it has an slightly unpleasant (to me, at least) smell. Second, it did not moisturize well. My face felt tight and dry after using it. And if I used more, I actually had some irritation. And I do not have sensitive skin. Also, I used it once after an apricot scrub facial product and it caused an unpleasant tingling which I never had with any other product after the apricot scrub. I had to throw away an almost full jar.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value I like the fact that it's all natural and does the work. For the price I'm satisfied!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very light in everyway No scent so you could add your own essential oils for frangrance, that's a nice thing. This lotion is very light, the first time I used it I had to apply three times until my skin felt moisturized. It penetrated nicely though (maybe my skin was dryer than I realized!) Now that I'm used to it I use more the first time and it seems to keep my skin feeling smooth and moisturized. I use it all over except my face where I do need more moisture, but if your skin is oily, it would work great on your face too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shame on Desert Essence I understand from reading many older, past reviews of this product on the internet that people used to love it, and the ingredient list was much better. But they have cheapened the ingredients and made it worse now. The worst thing, which made me decide to just return it and not even try it, is the fact that it now contains a scary-sounding ingredient, sodium hydroxide, which is a form of LYE. This ingredient is causing loads of people everywhere to get anything from irritation to redness and burns on their face. This is the ingredient that causes what Desert Essence calls "a radiant glow." I was afraid to try it.
