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:

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.

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

        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.

                These are great cleansing pads, especially for on the go and acne prone areas, and excellent, safe ingredients, but hold your breath-the smell stings your eyes.

                • Works Effectively

                Cons

                • Pads Dry Out Quickly
                • Two Pads Required

                Best Uses

                • Adult Acne

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

                I've used about six containers of these pads and I keep coming back for more.

                This product works extremely well because the manufacturer uses an ample amount of tea tree oil. (This could also be why they're a bit pricey compared to other brands.)

                You should be extremely wary of any tea tree oil product that smells good, so reviews complaining about the odor are actually a testament to purity and effectiveness.

                Be sure to immediately put the cap back on these pads because they dry out very quickly. I find using two pads is necessary once the container is about half empty to maintain the same level of dampness.
