Kelp – horrible smell
Kelp face wash has a horrible smell, I could not stand it – I am washing my feet with it. It also dries your skin a lot, and I did not like how my face felt after that. I am not buying this again.
Really Good Cleanser
This cleanser is great. My skin always feels very clean after I use it. Although, I agree with people who have said to use a soap pump bottle with it. It is almost impossible to hold on its own. Before I bought the product I read a lot of reviews that said the smell was bad, I disagree. I actually really like the smell. It is an unusual smell but not bad by any standards.
Didn’t work for my face, but works great elsewhere!
I purchased this cleanser when I was struggling with moderate acne. I’m a redhead with fair, sensitive skin. My pimples were located on my forehead, chin, and sometimes nose. I know that tea tree oil (a natural antiseptic and antibacterial agent) can be effective at fighting acne, but this cleanser did not clear mine. Also, it was much too drying, even though I diluted it (half water, half cleanser) and used a moisturizer afterwards. I stopped using it on my face after a few weeks and have since found another skin care line that works great for me. Luckily, the Desert Essence cleanser works well for other purposes. It’s super effective at cleaning my makeup brushes. I also use it to wash minor cuts, scrapes, and blisters; it stings a little but helps things heal so quickly! One time I even used it for a few days when I ran out of hand soap. I’m happy that even though this didn’t work for my face, I can use up the rest of the bottle on other things. And this is a bit weird because others have commented that they dislike the smell, but I love the smell! It’s so natural. Give this cleanser a try – it’s not very expensive and even if it doesn’t work on your face you can use it elsewhere! Also, FYI: Trader Joe’s sells the same product with different packaging if you prefer to purchase locally.
Desert Essence Thoroughly Clean Face Wash
When I first received this, the smell really bothered me. Now I love it and I associate it with a clean feeling. I have suffered from acne for many years, and this in combination with a good loofah has really helped keep breakouts at bay. I will warn against how strong this is though due to the tea tree oil. For the life of me I cannot understand why but my husband washes his face with his eyes open and then lets the water run down his face, then shouts when the cleanser gets into his eyes. I think he learned his lesson after this face wash arrived in the house. Make sure you really rinse your face before opening your eyes!
This is great for myself, my husband, and my Tween girl! It does dry out my older skin a bit, so I use it over the trouble spots and then lotion the dry areas I tend to get. I LOVE THIS STUFF!! It’s great for my face, back, and the backs of the arms. Seriously, it’s worth a try. I recommend this to friends and family. I also recommend their Blemish Touch stick!!
Thoroughly Clean Face Wash gets my face clean, smells nice, and has natural ingredients. It does tend to burn my eyes, which is odd since obviously I close my eyes tight when I wash my face.
This stuff is great! I’m so used to buying products that are oil free, but I have been shedding my old ideas about oils and I’ve been getting great results. I have combination skin that is prone to blackheads and breakouts, and my skin has been totally clear since I started using this stuff about a month and a half ago. Recommended.
Great natural product!
I like this a lot.
