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).

    Smells horrible. Super strong tea tree oil fragrance - worse than the pure tea tree oil I have! Hard to put this on my face without gagging.

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

      This oil based face wash is the best thing I've ever used to clean my face. It takes only a few drops to spread easily over your face with water, suds up a bit, clean off every trace of makeup and easily wash off. And the ingredients are all natural.

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

      I started using this product because it is free of toxins and chemicals. Because of that it doesn't have any added frangrance, which lends to the "natural" smell, which I find a bit odd. However, the smell doesn't linger and it leaves my skin feeling smooth and clean so I will put up with it for 15 seconds a day!

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

      I have sensitive skin that breaks out every so often. After using traditional acne cleansers with salicylic acid/benzoyl peroxide for the past decade, I wanted to try a natural product. It's slightly drying but has kept my skin very clear, actually clearing up a blemish I had at the start of use. The texture of my skin has become smoother as well. Great price, great product!

      Rated 1 by Skin deep database, reflecting it's ingredients are non-toxic overall. It leaves a clean feel that is not drying. I have normal skin that is not acne prone. It smells like wood chips. I would continue to use it.

        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.

          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.

            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.
