Love tea tree oil. There are so many uses for it. I purchased the large size because I had problems with itchy dry scalp and adult cystic acne. So I have been using it on my hair particularly on the scalp and it has worked wonders. For my skin I use Cuticura soap and alternate with this as well. I will leave this on my skin for a couple of minutes while in the shower. Seems to sink in and fight the bacteria. I then add 1 drop to my cotton ball soaked in my toner. After the toner I mix 2 drop of tea tree oil, salicylic acid(neutrogena Rapid clear) 1 drop of jojoba oil, and a bit of glycolic acid -alpha hydrox 10% oil free cream. I mix it on the palm of my hand and apply it to my face at night and in the morning. I add a tiny bit of tea tree oil to my concealer to cover any acne and dark spots left from the acne or when I feel something coming.. The jojoba and and glycolic help to moisturize the skin which is important with acne prone skin otherwise it will make acne worse. You may need to play with the amt of jojoba and tea tree oil depending on skin type. I have tried many expensive products and done alot of research. I have learned that you need to kill the acne causing bacteria & stop it from speading and giving you more acne (tea tree oil) Keep pores clean and exfoliated(salicylic acid, glycolic acid) and very important moisturized (jojoba oil) or any other moisturizer that works for you.I love to run so I never leave the house w/o SPF Moisturizer. My skin is balanced again. The reason why I used tea tree oil in just about everything that I put on my face was because I had a horrible cystic breakout that spread like wild fire wished I had used it sooner. Tea tree oil got it under control. Am so thankful.

I find this cleanser to work as it should as a cleanser, but nothing majorly fantastic about it. The smell is a little on the strong side, but I don't mind it that much since it's just a strong "natural" smell. It cleans well but does not remove eye makeup, so just make sure you use a seperate remover for that (jojoba oil works great).

Comments about Desert Essence Thoroughly Clean Face Wash with Organic Tea Tree Oil and Awapuhi, 8.5 fl oz:

I have tried many cleansers but this one tops all of them! Is gentle enough while deep cleansing!My skin is oily/combo so I do not know if this will work on dry or sensitive skin or even in severe acne skin. As for skin it has worked pretty well with no reaction from it and I have used it for almost a year.

    Comments about Desert Essence Thoroughly Clean Face Wash with Organic Tea Tree Oil and Awapuhi, 8.5 fl oz:

    Works well with my combination skin, liked it so much I bought two of the big bottle refills when I ran out of the 8 oz. I like that this cleanser does lather and skin feels nice and clean afterwards. The formula can get sticky and build up around the pump over time, when I ordered the refills I started using a little bottle with a top like a sports water bottle which is easier; the liquid can be a little thin so careful pouring into your hand.

      Comments about Desert Essence Thoroughly Clean Face Wash with Organic Tea Tree Oil and Awapuhi, 8.5 fl oz:

      At 36, I'm experiencing acne for the first time in my life. I was looking for a gentle, yet effective (antibacterial?) product. Tea tree oil is know to be effective on acne and castille soap is extremely gentle. I've used this product in the past and it is wonderful. With winter is coming, I'm not sure if it will be over-drying...though my skin has gotten increasingly oily, so it may not be an issue for me.

        This face wash helps the gently clean oily skin without the over-drying and irritation that most face washes cause. I am acne prone but I try to avoid using products with salicylic acid on my face. This product is by far the most effective natural face wash I've used.

            I was looking for a good product with tea tree oil. From my very first use, though, I was disappointed with this. The smell was highly off-putting. It was bad enough while I was actually washing my face with this, but then the smell lingered on my skin... bleh. I was willing to put up with that, though, if it would effectively clear up my complexion. However, repeated use led to skin so dry and irritated it felt like a chemical burn. Mind you, I don't have sensitive skin or any allergies, and my face is as oily as you can get. I've never had this kind of reaction to a skin product. I'm thinking waaaay too much tea tree oil? In any event, I couldn't get rid of this stuff fast enough.

            I used this to wash my face on a daily basis. I would not recommend it for acne prone skin. However my boyfriend had a fungal infection on his torso and this cleared it up. So it does have some good uses and would probably be a great facial cleanser if my skin wasn't so oily. The product is really watery but does make a good lather.

              I've used countless expensive cleansers over many many years, and yet pores were never clean and pimples were a problem--I simply wasn't getting my skin clean enough. My skin can dry easily so I was nervous that this could be drying but it's not at all! It cleans thoroughly and my blackheads and breakouts are gone. I will say I am militant about my skincare, so I wash every morning and every evening, and in spite of that, no drying, yet smooth clear skin. I started using it in the shower on my chest which can also be prone to light breakouts and again, all cleared up. I've also referred this to several of my friends and my teenage daughter, and they all feel the same as I do. I use this in combination with my Somme line up (minus their cleanser). I will say it not only saves me $$ but my skin has never looked better. I highly recommend!

                  I wasn't a fan of this product. It made me break out. At first I wasn't sure if this product was to blame, but as soon as I started using another facial cleanser my skin finally cleared up.

                      I've used many creams & lotions prescribed by Dermatologists that didn't work well & left my skin oily. My rash seemed to never go away unless I used this cortisone cream every day. I tried Desert Essence Face Cleanser w/Tea Tree Oil & facial moisturizer (and toner) I was amazed. After a week my rash (eczema) and fungus disappeared (use twice a day). This is the most amazing cleanser and best results I've had in YEARS! I am purchasing some for my daughter. I recommend this product to anyone if you have problem skin. You won't regret it.
