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.

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

      I have Rosacea for those that don't understand imagine red little bumps all over your face that are there when you get hot, eat spicy food, or are exercising or running around or stressed, for me this is almost all of the time. I have purchased a $70 product advertised for Rosacea and it made my redness worse. I forgot I am also blessed with adult acne (mild) sometimes they look the same. I used this product one night and woke up to flawless skin not a red patch to be found. I love how this product has reduced the pores and makes the skin feel tight. The smell is lets just say POTENT but this product has no salycic acid so it will not make your face dry or peel. I love it.

      It kind of defeats the purpose to have a pad that you have to rinse off afterwords, I purchased this product because I thought it would save time in my regiment

          I love these because they are easy to use and make me feel like I am doing my skin a favor. These don't have nasty chemicals in them.

          Yes the smell is strong, but who cares, for the 5 seconds it's near your nose you can live with it, besides, the smell is primarily tea tree and that is a great smell.

          Great for travel, you can carry them around and they don't dry out. Yes a flatter container would be nice but all the resealable pouches dry out, this is sturdy.

            I personally like the scent of these cleansing pads. The fragrance is somewhat strong but it smells so fresh and clean! The tea tree oil gives them a minty scent and a tingly feel. These pads grab dirt that I didn't even know was there! Love em!

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

              This product is awesome. It's great go pick up all the extra grim and grossness that is left behind after a long day. It tingles and stings a little in acne prone areas, and the smell is pretty harsh. Just make sure you rinse with cold water after you use it like the directions say, and I would pair it with a moisterizer if you have combination skin because it tends to dry skin out a little.

              I have been using TeaTree products for a while now and when I saw this cleansing pad, I know I must try it out! But it was more disappointing than I thought I would be experiencing. The pads are tiny so I need to use more than one. It is so rough on the face I feel like I am destroying my skin. Make sure you put a good moisturizer on afterwards to soothe your skin! I most likely won't be buying this again.

                I'm trying out all the pads like this and I really like the ingredients in this brand. It works really well and smells good. I use it for mid-day acne prevention and it seems to be good in that role. I'll buy this again.

                  I couldn't tell you if this product actually works. The two times I tried to use it, it smelled so bad that it took my breath away. It smells like garden dirt, and puke.
