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 suffer from adult acne since I was pregnant with my son over 2 years ago. I'm pregnant again and my face a out of control. I saw this recommended on a pregnancy skin care site so I figured I would give it a shot. I've been using this as a toner along with my mychelle cranberry cleanser and prescription Rosacea medication for 3 days. My skin is noticeably clearer and I don't have any pain like I normally do from the acne. I'm so excited to finally find something that works!

      I really like these. They're amazing to use after I cleanse my skin. It gets rid of any extra makeup that wasn't removed. The tea tree oil also really helps to prevent breakout. If you're breaking out everywhere and don't know why, give these a try.

          I love these pads! Tea tree oil naturally has a pretty strong scent, so if you're not used to the smell it may bother you. Other than that, I have nothing bad to say about this product. These pads have made it so simple and easy to use tea tree oil on my face.

              This is great for Preteens who are just starting a skincare routine; or...frazzled working moms who bought it for their preteen but ends up using them-ALL OF THEM. When your skincare routine has to take a backseat due to your nine month old getting checked while crawling because your 4 year insists she's a tackle dummy these are great for you.

                  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.

                      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.
