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!

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

    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.

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

    When I find a product that works, I stick to it! This helps clear pimples and problem skin, isn't too drying and gently cleans oil from my face. I don't wear much makeup but on days when I do, it washes off just fine without additional makeup remover. I like the smell, it's how essential oils smell like, pure and potent. Sometimes I do see a white film just around my nose, which has happened with other castile soaps. It's because there are not any ingredients meant to strip your skin of oil so the white film is the oil that wasn't able to completely wash away mixed with the castile soap. Gently washing the area with a wash cloth does the trick. Even with that gimmick, I would still stick to the face wash.

      I used is 2 or 3 times it dried my skin out so bad that my skin compensated by producing more oil... Very strong tea tree smell. I usually use another brands tea tree product and this was worse at drying my skin that what I switched from.

      I like this face wash very much. I have oily skin and it cleans it effectively without over-drying. The only downside I found is the smell. It's very strong and pungent. It's fine if you're okay with tea tree oil though.

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

        Almost my entire beauty/hygiene regimen is natural (only ingredients I can pronounce), occasionally including using baking soda on my very oily skin. (I know - everyone warns away from this, but it works wonders for me.) So, using BS, I have to regulate the pH of my skin afterwards, and this does that. I've used it on its own in the past and loved it then, but it's even better now. The smell is wonderful (you have to love the smell of tea tree oil), though this is slightly runny. I only use this at night, and follow up with argan oil (yes, even on oily skin). So, if you have dry skin, tea tree oil is still great for spot treating, but I wouldn't recommend this for an all-over wash; it leaves you, literally, squeaky clean, and I can't imagine what this would do to dry skin. You should definitely keep this away from your eye area (it burns!) and not expect this to remove any eye makeup - I can't speak for other kinds of makeup since I don't wear any. This huge size is an amazing value, and I use it on my chest, décolleté, and upper arms as well to keep them smooth.

          I use this product every night with a soft facial brush. It removes every trace of makeup and deep cleans your pores. Spending big $$$ for one of those electric facial brushes is waste of money, because this product does an outstanding job!
