This 100% organic product is absolutely wonderful. It has the best ingredients I've ever seen in all my years of skin-care product shopping. Castile soap, coconut oil, goldenseal, and best of all : tea tree oil, all very effective for acne-prone skin. Plus, at 32 fl oz for only [$], this is a steal. I've been using this facewash for a while now, and it has finally reduced the last remaining blemishes I have from my acne breakout-crisis years ago. The downside is that the smell is a bit overwhelming, and the texture is extremely slippery--it feels exactly like soap and takes a lot of water to rinse off completely. Also, it's so runny that once, I made the mistake of not closing my eyes while using this on my forehead... and the result is that some of it dripped into my eyes. Man, it burned so bad that I thought I was going to go blind (the stinging subsided only after 4-5 hours later) so remember to close your eyes when washing your face with this. Also, I dont like the packaging: the design of the bottle is awkward and so hard-to-use, that I had to transfer the content out in an empty face-wash bottle I had lying around. but all in all, this is a must-have for acne-prone skin looking for a natural treatment.

I recently decided to go organic and purchased an entire regime of new natural hair/skin/household products. I was so surprised and impressed at how they measured up to everyday drugstore brands! However, this face wash smells horrible, burns and turned my face red. I also bought Kiss My Face Start-Up face wash and thought it smelled much better and also was gentler on my skin, while leaving it clean (even took off my mascara). I am surprised by all of the positive reviews for Thoroughly Clean. I don"t have acne, so perhaps it is just too strong/drying for my skin type. I also bought several other products with tea tree that smelled fresh and pleasant (e.g. California Baby). This smelled like something that you'd take your nail polish off with!

      Good smell, love that it's natural, but it caused me to break out. I gave the product 3 weeks of use and during that time ended up with 2 breakout episodes.

      Probably not great for people with acne-prone skin.

        Comments about Desert Essence Thoroughly Clean Face Wash with Organic Tea Tree Oil and Awapuhi, 32 fl oz:

        I have sensitive, combination skin that is prone to acne and hyper-pigmentation. It's hard to find products that provide balance; most seem to treat one issue while aggravating another. I have tried many natural (and not so natural) products that I have liked but never really loved. I wanted to simplify my routine so I scrapped all of my products and started from scratch. I am down to just two things - this face wash and Thayers Lavendar Witch Hazel - and my skin looks better then it has in years. I use this with a gentle BufPuf for cleansing and exfoliating in the shower and I tone with witch hazel on a cotton round when I get out. Sometimes I use the toner over the course of the day to freshen up but always use the cleanser and toner again before bed. My pores are tight, my skin has a glow and my pigment spots are fading. This is hands down the best facial cleanser I've tried. It doesn't dry me out, my skin feels clean and my breakouts have greatly reduced. As an added bonus this bottle is huge and lasts for a really long time. I having been using it daily for months and I'm not half way through my first bottle.

          This is fantastic! I'm 51 and started to have problems with my skin texture and breakouts on my chin. I tried several higher end products that 'claimed' to address these issues. Nothing worked. I've been pleased with other Desert Essence products and decided to try this. My skin texture has already improved and my chin is clearing up after only 5 washes!

              This is the third time I bought the product. I am combination skin. The price is amazing, and the product clean well. The smell is not good, but I think it's the real smell for natural. This is the only cleaner I use for my face. By the way, sometimes I use it for body wash.

                I have been searching for a daily regimen (face wash / toner / moisturizer) for a very, very long time. I have incredibly sensitive skin and am super sensitive to chemicals and fragrances (natural or otherwise). I have tried so many different product lines but I think I have finally found the one. Thank you Desert Essence! Not to mention, it's so affordable for such a quality product!

                  This stuff is more than effective at cleaning your face. I was prescribed steroids for years due to my autoimmune condition Lupus, and it caused deep cystic acne. This and a home-made facial toner I have concocted for myself, followed by 100% Aloe Vera gel, are the only things that helped with it. The facial toner contains: lemon juice, Apple cider vinegar, witch hazel, tea tree oil, a small amount of isopropyl alcohol. It works to balance the ph levels on your face. I have even taken to mixing a little aloe Vera in with my toner when I make it lately. I would wash with this, then follow with the toner, and after it dried, I would apply the aloe Vera. Luckily I am no longer on steroids, but I still continue to use this routine, my skin has never looked better!

                  This doesn't smell great, but man, does it work. It's all natural and washes everything away, even stubborn makeup. I have adult acne, and this is the only cleanser I use. It's a bit drying, so you will need to moisturize after use. And one bottle lasts for months.
