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).

  • Leaves Clean Feel

Best Uses

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

I have combination skin, and my T zone is really oily every morning after a night of sleep. This facial cleanser really helps get rid of the oily feeling and gives you a fresh feel on your skin in the morning. The thing I like about it is that after you wash your face with it, your oily zone feels just right and it's not going to be overly oily after a few mins like other cleansers. The smell is indeed strong, but after getting used to it, it's no big deal. However, if it gets into your eyes,...it's really irritating... On the acne side, it doesn't help much for me, but I still recommend this cleanser for the natural and clean effect.

    Has a rather strong smell but it seems to really clean. I like the fact that it's natural and has tea tree oil in it, a good antiseptic. I've only used it a short while but hope it helps my bad skin.

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

    I have purchased this a few times and had good results, then i switched to burt's bees and asked myself why. After months of using something else, i finally got another bottle of this stuff and my skin has improved already! I know now, when i find something that works, stick to it! I have oily skin and this makes my face feel really clean. It does irritate the skin and leave it red sometimes, but that only happens when i accidentally use too much. Only a few drops is needed and washing your face for a minute does help, instructions are there for a reason! i personally like the smell of tea tree, it has a clean, herb like smell. I've also tried the soap bar version and it caused me to break out and it was terrible. I'm sticking to this product and plan on buying the 32oz when i run out, because i will continue using this product as long as it is being manufactured!

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

          This is the best cleanser that I have found for my rosacea. My face doesn't flare up during the day. The texture of my skin is also smoother. Some reviewers complained about the scent. It's a natural scent, and it only lasts as long as you wash your face. Once you rinse, it's gone. So why the fuss??? I love this product and would recommend it to anyone with sensitive skin/rosacea/oily skin.

          This is a great product for every day use. It leaves skin soft and doesn't overly dry you out. The smell is not for everyone, but well worth it for the benefits of the product.

          Years of acne and many products. I use this with my clarisonic, but have to use the lower settings. I use this on my chest, back and legs as well. Has helped my skin very much.

          I bought this product for its natural properties, and hoped for the best. It does have a very strong smell - that is from the tea tree oil, but I don't mind it. It works well at removing makeup and oil, but at the same time it really really dries out your face. I will finish using this product, but will buy something else after its used up. In order to combat the drying effect it has, I moisturize my face with almond oil - it helps a lot.
