Reviews For Thoroughly Clean Face Wash - Oily & Combination Skin
Based on 17 Reviews
Not What I Expected, But Still Love It
When I ordered this product, I was under the impression it would have the same consistency as soap or even lotion, but it is runny liquid and hardly thicker than water. I made it work anyway and use it on my face in the shower. I love the smell, and after rinsing, my skin is smooth and firm. If I leave it on without rinsing for more than a couple minutes, it stings a bit, but does not harm my skin.
Good but drying
I can only use this once a day b/c it's too drying. I alternate with another face wash and it's a great combo.
Five years ago, I would have loved this because my skin feels so dry after using it (since I tend to have oily skin). However, I've learned much more about skin health since then, and know that the answer to oily skin is not to remove ALL the oil. This face wash - as soon as I use it - dries my face out completely. Like, completely. If I don't moisturize within seconds, I can sense problems. However, the moisturizer that is paired with this ALSO leaves my skin dreadfully dry. So I end up adding a bit of argan or jojoba oil as well. With this added oil, I don't have a major problem with this cleanser. But I simply would not be able to use this without that step.
I've only had it for a couple weeks now, so cannot obviously attest to any true success. But I haven't noticed any further breakouts because of it (once again - as long as I'm adding additional oil).
does have a strong tea tree scent.
i have normal to oily skin and works great.
one small pump cleans my whole face.
Takes time for skin to adjust
The first week I used this face wash I broke out like crazy. I think it was drawing out some of the toxins in my skin, because after a week or two I have started clearing up and my skin feels less oily. It also seems to have made my skin more sensitive. When I used my old face wash it kind of burns - not in a terrible way, but like when you use a new face wash and you can feel it tingling but stronger.
I tried this product since I am looking for more products with no chemical additives. This product cleans OK but the smell is overpowering and unpleasant. Will not be buying again.
This product is very refreshing. It is very liquidy though so you only need one pump. It does dry out the skin but that's the job for a moisturizer. It last for about 4 months if used once to twice a day.
I like it, however....
I really like this face wash. The scent took me a little bit to get used to because it was stronger than I was thinking it would be, but I have come to enjoy it. I feel like this really cleans my face well and it doesn't leave me feeling oily after, which is great! I would give this 5 stars, but the pump was broken, probably during shipping, so I have to take off the top, pour some into my hand, then screw the top back on every time which is a bit annoying.
Clear, beautiful skin!
I have combination skin - some parts are very oily, so using this product 2 to 3 times a day has worked wonders. It has an incredible aroma and has completely cleared up my complexion. Highly recommend!
This face wash is great! It gets rid of the oils and dirt without drying my face out keeping it from getting overly oily later on. It's great!

This face wash has a very overpowering smell. It does get my face clean, but I feel like I should be plugging my nose when I'm using it. I really do like how clear my skin is after using it though!
Really don't care for this facial soap, the smell is really overbearing and kind of makes me sick!!
I wouldn't recommend product
I used this face wash for about a month and it didn't work! I don't normally have acne, a few blemishes here and there but nothing to crazy, and after using this product I've had more acne on my cheeks than back in High School.
Pine Smell and Thin Consistency
This soap has the consistency of water (very runny) so it is hard to pump into your hands to wash your face. Also, the smell is like pine and very powerful. On a plus side, my face does feel fresh and clean when I am done.
Works great, doesn't smell the best, but you get used to it. One of the best facial cleansers I have found for my over oily skin.
Face is left clean and refreshed
I spend a lot of time testing and reviewing serums, toners, and moisturizers for companies, so at the end of the day I need a face wash I can trust. I really do trust Thoroughly Clean Face Wash. The reason, you ask? I am a firm believer in the power of tea tree oil. I add it to everything from my toothpaste to my shampoos and conditioners. I use it as an all over healer of just about anything from small cuts to dandruff and bad breath. And it really works!
So when I found this face wash on Thrive, I was super excited to try it.
I use this face wash every morning and at night before bed as well. It doesn't dry out my face or leave it oily and it rinses off easily. My skin looks instantly brighter and I have had no breakouts since using this face wash. I am so happy with my results and will definitely be buying another tube of this after it's re-stocked.

I really like it!
This is one of the least harmful face washing products to use. I really like it!
