Finding a skincare routine that works for your individual skin concerns can be daunting. When I was using chemical filled products, I had finally found the perfect regimen. Since I knew what worked well for me, I sought out natural products that might be similar to my former routine. I was using Clinique's Liquid Facial Soap so in looking for something similar, I stumbled upon Desert Essence Gentle Nourishing Organic Cleanser.
I found Desert Essence on drugstore.com for $14. The reviews were pretty good plus, I liked the ingredient list and that it was organic. EWG rates this as a 0 (low hazard), which is pretty darn good in my book. Here is a little more on what the label has to say:
This cleanser is particularly for dry and sensitive skin. I picked it up because I need something that was gentle on my skin but could remove makeup at the end of the day. I was using it in my routine every evening with my Clarisonic.
I also found it to be as gentle as it claims. I did not experience breakouts or other adverse side effects from using it. It was comparable to the Clinique I had been using.
Unfortunately, my cystic acne has not been responding well to natural products. I switched to a new line and have since stopped using Desert Essence. It wasn't their fault, as this isn't a product that's claiming to help with acne. Having said that, I think this is an excellent basic cleanser.
If you are someone who wants great makeup removal or just wants something simple and clean to wash with, I think you will enjoy this cleanser.
- best product I have used for removing makeup
- very gentle
- clean product in terms of ingredients and how it rates
- price is on point
- doesn't help with cystic acne but the product doesn't claim to do so
