The Best Face Wash You’ll Ever Use
Up until my 20s, cleaning my face meant Neutrogena Acne Face Wash and St. Ives Apricot Scrub. These served me well while my skin was busy breaking out and being hormonal. However, when things balanced out, I needed less drying and more moisture than either of these could provide. Add in my crunchy girl desire to find something more natural and free of icky chemicals and it was like a Where’s Waldo crusade.
I searched high and low, with face wash success here and there, but ultimately nothing met all of my criteria. Until I nabbed my brother-in-law’s Desert Essence Thoroughly Clean Face Wash. It’s the “green” version of my old Neutrogena stand-by. It does a stellar job cleaning, keeps break outs a thing of my teenage past (save for my monthly pimple visit) and does it all without making my face feel like it’s been attacked by a moisture sucking vampire.
Desert Essence Thoroughly Clean Face Wash is the best face wash I’ve ever used. It does a seriously cleaning job and also works overtime. In the six months I’ve been using it, the texture and tone of my skin have dramatically improved. There’s a slight tea tree oil smell to it but it’s very subtle. I will warn you to shut your eyes tight because it can sting pretty bad if it runs into your eyes at all.
I’m most excited because it’s a “green” product free of many of the harsh chemicals we’re warned about these days. Four out of five green products won’t work on my skin so just know I kissed a lot of frogs to get to this prince. And for the cost conscious skincare maven, rejoice knowing you can score an 8.5 fluid ounce bottle or get more bang for your buck with the 32 fluid ounce refill size. I’m in green skincare heaven!
