Reviews For Thoroughly Clean Face Wash - Oily & Combination Skin

Based on 16 Reviews

Fantastic product, even better price

I use this as both face + body wash and it lasts over months, so for the price it's a steal. It's just as effective as any other wash I've used, if not moreso. The one drawback is that the scent is a bit offputting at first, but you get used to it in a week or two.

Amazing Cleanser!

It's been almost a year since adding this to my daily skin care and I love it! Works great with my combination oily skin and clears up any hormonal breakouts without overdrying. It even cleans my makeup brushes and sponges without leaving residue behind. Love, love, love this product!

- Niquita

Cleanest soap

I won't use anything else to wash my face and other sensitive bits. Leaves you squeaky clean with no residue. I cut this in half with water so it last forever.

Really Like

My boys have been using this as well - the redness in their face has cleared up considerably.

- Jessica

I Love It

This is the best quality face wash I've ever had. Then there's the fact that it's a steal considering that it's so large that it will last nearly forever. It makes my skin feel so clean. I put some lotion on after and my face feels perfect. The only downfall is that the opening is kind of large for a face wash, but that's pretty minor.

- Tara


Works great on my combination skin. Love the smell. Will definitely buy again.

- Jeness

Solid product!

I'd understand why the smell might bother some people. But I personally like that oaky, woodsy type of smell so I love it! When I first used it, my face felt squeeky clean. Like it does when I use really harsh soaps. But it was a different type of clean, yeah, my face was really clean but it wasn't tight or stretched. And it certainly did not dry out after wards like it does when I use other soaps. I wash my face with this in the day time and apply my sun screen and wash again at night and apply coconut oil. Its been great at minimizing my pores, controlling my oily face and balancing my complexion. I even keep a little travel size jar in my bag for those long days. I love that I get this huge bottle (that I think will last months since you only need a tiny bit to get a huge lather) for $10.95. Because this bottle is huge, I put some of mine in a smaller bottle with a pump spout. It works great!

I love this face wash!!! Yes the scent is strong but it smells like tea tree oil and the ginger not chemicals. It does have a watery consistency but I use exfoliating gloves (which I do recommend). My face has never felt better/ looked better. People have told me that my face has been glowing. I am a college student under constant stress. I breakout a lot during finals and midterms. This is the first time where I did n ot break out! I recommend this to everyone who has asked. This is also a great deal! I barely hit halfway through and I have had it for 2.5 months.

- Suzan

Love it!!!

I'd been using a popular name brand cleanser for my face until the first time I used a white towel to dry with. Yuk! It did not clean all of the makeup off. I will admit that I didn't care for the scent of the Thoroughly Clean Face Wash the first couple of times I used it. Now I'm in love! My face is amazingly clean and I can't wait to use it each night. I've even come to like the scent and the price is great.

- Debra

Great value!

Love this cleanser! Great for kids & adults. The huge bottle guarantees we won't quickly run out! Excellent value.

- Jennifer

Awesome value!

I can't believe this HUGE bottle of cleanser is less than $11! The smell is very natural and earthy, I found it very pleasant. And my skin felt softer and smoother even after just one use. It seems this bottle will last me a long, long time so I'm excited to continue using it! :)

Back to the earth

Smell is awesome feel so fresh and clean !!

Great product

I was very unpleasantly surprised by the smell of this product. Hot tar or maybe turpentine. I used it anyway and I am glad that I did. This is an excellent exfoliating wash that makes a remarkable difference in your skin. It removes all dry patches from chemo and makes your skin balanced and refreshed.

- Susan

Refreshing and clean wash

I wash my face with this awesome face wash, and then I apply some coconut oil as my finishing touch. This combination works really well on my oily skin, and I've noticed the face wash is also taking away some problem spots that I've had for months. I really like the natural ingredients, and the scent is subtle but nice. Thrive also offers this for two dollars less than Amazon, so score another one for great value!

- Michele Patterson

Works for Dry Skin

I may be a guy, but I still care about keeping clear skin. I have really dry skin, and most cleansers made it worse, but I still kept breaking out. It was horrid. Gave this a chance, and it's been great. It has a gentle scent that's strong without lasting after I've rinsed it off. It smoothed out my skin, and I honestly rarely have break-outs or dry patches anymore. It's gentle enough that I have no problem using it every day of the week. This is really good.
