Rated 3 out of 5 by from Swanson brand works better I got this for my daughter who had been using the swanson brand successfully for blemishes. I thought this would be the same and possibly better because we like other desert essence products. But she told me that this brand actually seemed to cause more pimples. I was very surprised at this. This is not to say that this product doesn't work well for others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
