      Comments about Desert Essence Gentle Nourishing Organic Cleanser, 6.7 fl oz:

      This product would be perfect if it didn't make my face look like Rocky Mountain status. I love the pump, I love the smell, the consistency is great, worked very well with my clarisonic, left my skin feeling smooth and cleansed but not filmy or greasy at all... but after 3 or 4 days of using this, I started breaking out. I wanted to give it a fair shot so I continued to use it for about 2 weeks but it only got worse. My skin usually reacts well to natural oils, but I'm suspecting it might be the coconut oil because that's known to be highly comedogenic for acne-prone skin. I personally have not put coconut oil on my face but I knew the high comodogenicy of it, so I suppose that was my own stupidity. I figured seeing as there are also so many other great natural oils in this as well that it might work out. Nope. I was getting breakous where I normally don't breakout. If you're acne-prone, buy with caution.

        Comments about Desert Essence Gentle Nourishing Organic Cleanser, 6.7 fl oz:

        I bought this cleanser because I have been using Dessert Essence's Tea Tree Oil facial cleanser for years and like it. This product is also very good--my skin feels clean and stays soft after cleansing. My only complaint is that the pump for this and other Dessert Essence cleansers often gets clogged and stops working before I finish the bottle. Otherwise, I love it and will continue to use it even with the inconvenience of having to open the bottle rather than pumping it.

        Comments about Desert Essence Gentle Nourishing Organic Cleanser, 6.7 fl oz:

        I searched for a cleanser that won't dry my skin out but leaves it feeling clean. It gives me just a little foam which I like. At first it made my nose itch so I'm probably slightly allergic to an ingredient. Still, I've decided to keep it and have become a fan because it works and I love the ingredients, company ethics and price.

          Not gentle enough for my sensitive skin

          Comments about Desert Essence Gentle Nourishing Organic Cleanser, 6.7 fl oz:

          My experience may be unusual for this product, but it is not unusual for me. I have extremely dry, sensitive skin with some roseacea and virtually any product will be too harsh for cleansing. This was no exception, unfortunately. After the first use, my face felt dry, itchy, and flushed. Back to pure jojoba oil and Cetaphil, a combo that at least doesn't irritate.

          Your results may vary, but I would not recommend this to a friend if she had similar skin issues.

          I cleanse my face every morning and evening with Desert Essence Gentle Nourishing Organic Cleanser for Sensitive Skin. My face is clean and soothed.
          My rosacea is happier then it's ever been and I feel like I have a handle on this horrid skin condition.
          When I follow my morning cleansing with Neurogena Healthy Defense Moisturizer, then BareEscentuals mineral makeup, my skin feels wonderful and looks so much better.
          Rosacea sufferers.... try this great product.

            I have very sensitive, skin and cannot use many products without redness or some sort of irritation. This product is truly gentle for my aging sensitive skin and it washes off my make-up at night. I absolutely love it and it smells great. Wonderful product.

            I really wanted to like this product, but it isn't doing the trick for me. I am breaking out pretty badly and my face is oily soon after using the product. The really annoying thing is that the pump broke (there is an issue with the product clogging the pump somehow) after two uses. Ugh.

              Comments about Desert Essence Gentle Nourishing Organic Cleanser, 6.7 fl oz:

              I bought this product from a natural foods store when I got pregnant. My dry sensitive skin became oily and even more sensitive and, for the first time in my life, I started to break out (hormones). This stuff was so mild on my skin and helped with the break outs. I will continue using it long after my baby is born.
              It smells great, rinses clean and leaves my skin soft and doesn't dry it out.
