At first I thought these were too harsh for my oily/acne-prone/ sensitive skin. They were a little irritating and drying. Plus, I don't trust any products that contain alcohol (one of the worst ingredients you can put on your face.)

But, I realized I was using the cleansing pads incorrectly. I only use them at night now, once or twice a week to remove excessive oil, dirt, and make-up residue. I had overlooked that the directions said to *rinse with cool water* when you're finished. That made all the difference in the world.

This is a great product to give you that sqeeky-clean feeling. They are great on camping trips and when traveling when you don't have access to water. The natural oils in this product are known for their anti-bacterial properties.

The smell of Tea Tree is a little overwhelming at first but you get used to it.

I look for a few specific things in a facial cleanser.. complete cleaning, gentle conditioning and something that in the end doesn't dry my skin out. This product did great in the cleansing area....but it was a bit harsh and the scent didn't do anything for me.

      I have been using these to clean my underarms since I stopped using regular antiperspirant. It really cleans and eliminates any odor and is lasting-I do apply coconut oil after using pads.

          Comments about Desert Essence Tea Tree Oil Facial Cleansing Pads, 50 ea:

          Just started using this product but I ordered it as a supplement to my cleaning regiment when I go out of town instead of having to pack cleansing cream, etc. Now that I've tried it, I have been using it every day and I love it. My only negative is the pads are a bit too small and sometimes I need to use more than one to finish the job or use some cleansing cream.

              This product made my eyes sting and tear-up even though the closest I got to the eye area was my cheek, which, one would think, is expected when using any facial cleanser. It does not clean make-up residue! Also, it felt very harsh on my very dry skin. Perhaps it works better for oily skin but that still will not solve the eye stinging problem and the poor cleansing performance.

              Please read my comment about Desert Essence Castile Liquid Soap with Eco-Harvest Tea Tree. I purchased these pads to wipe my phone after getting a breakout from someone using it. I LOVE THIS PRODUCT--ALOT!!!! I am African American with eczema and other skin sensitivities. A friend used it after I said it was a fave but said it caused her to b/o --but I think that its just pulling up everything. The smell is awful but it goes away. My issue with it is the jar. I do not buy it regularly because I think there should be a refill packet that you can just buy to put in the existing jar. I wish they would put the ingredients as a toner for the skin.

                Product is refreshing, and stimulating. I would prefer a more delicate aroma. It did not dry or irritate my skin.

                    I like this that product line is natural, and I use their liquid cleanser in the shower with a cellulose face sponge.

                    But when I put this to my face, the thin pads are rough, and the tea tree is concentrated and burns my eyes just from the fumes. But the thin pad hurts my face. It feels like its scraping my face.

                    I won't be using the pre-moistened pads anymore.
