About This Brand

EveryDay Coconut is an extension of Alaffia Sustainable Skin Care and EveryDay Shea. Alaffia was founded by Olowo-n’djo Tchala, a Togolese native, as a way to generate funds to conduct community enhancement projects in his home country and other West African nations in order to reduce poverty and gender inequality. Olowo-n’djo believes that Africans can mobilize their natural resources in a sustainable manner to empower their own communities, and that this is a more sustainable avenue towards reducing poverty than waiting for outside aid or for corrupt governments to fall. Alaffia and the Alaffia Coconut Cooperative were founded in order to trade the indigenous resource – Coconut Oil – in the West to raise proceeds which are then returned to Togo in the form of community projects. EveryDay Coconut is a continuation of this philosophy. EveryDay Coconut is a value line product that is price-sensitive during this economically difficult time. It provides a way for health-conscious...

Reviews For Fair Trade Coconut Cleansing Face Wash

Based on 51 Reviews

Great price for the amount you get

First time users, but this cleanser actually packs a punch. Gets my face clean, but doesn't leave it overly dry like some cleansers can. It has a natural smell, earthy. Consistency is smooth, not to sticky feeling. Definitely cleans all make up off without the extra scrubbing. Get a lot for the price so definitely worth it.

- Kristin

Love this face wash

I have been using this face wash for a couple weeks now and I am in love! My skin feels fresh and clean but it does not feel dry or scratchy after I wash my face. I have been using Clinique for years and I am going to start switching out pieces of my routine with the brand of skin care!

- Marissa Brenton

So far So good

So far, I like this product. I wanted to try it because it has coconuts in it. I also wanted to try it because I have sensitive skin. I have not gotten any acne or pimples yet so its seems to be working fine. The only thing that bothered me was that the very top part of the hand pump was broken when I recieved it. Other than that there were no problems with this product.

- Kayleena

I like it so far...

I have been using this for a couple weeks now. At first, my skin was getting dried out but I took that as my skin getting used to a new product so I stuck it out. The dryness has improved as of late. The color is not really appealing but it smells alright. I have not noticed much improvement in my acne but it takes time for a product to work so I'm not giving up yet. Will update at a later time.

- Rosie

Good stuff

Washes away dirt, oil, and make up. No residues or funny smells. And it's much healthier than most everything around. What else do you need? I'm satisfied and will order this again whenever I run out, so in 6 months or later probably. A little goes a long way with this one. Highly recommend.

- Ilona

A little goes a long way

This facewash lathers nicely and a little bit of it goes a long way. It does an OK job of removing makeup, but not the best. It's lightweight and comes off easily with water without leaving my face feeling oily or dry.

- Laura

Wonderful for oily skin

A great non-stripping formula that is perfect for oily or acne-prone skin. There is no fragrance and the gel-like texture is gentle enough to not completely dry out skin, but strong enough to remove all traces of makeup!

- Caroline

Amazing face wash for the price

Can't beat this deal. Best face wash for under $5

- Daniel


I use the face wash and the night lotion together, and they are so perfect! I have dry skin, especially in the winter. The face wash gets my skin squeaky clean feeling without drying it out, and the lotion absorbs so well. It is light, but super moisturizing. My skin feels so soft after wards. I only rinse my face in the morning, but the lotion is light enough to use without any soap, but rich enough to keep my skin soft and smooth. For the price and the amount I get, there is no better buy. The list of ingredients in short and simple, which is important to me as well. I recommend this for anyone who likes a simple routine, but wants the best for their skin.


Love it!

I've used this for at least 6 months at this point... I love it! My skin feels great. It cleans very well and one bottle lasts a long time!

- Kara


Love this!! Smells clean and has good lather. This will be my new face wash

- Trisha J

Great product and great service

I love this product and I just fell in loved with it when a friend recommended it to me. I have been using it for the last 2 years and I needed to purchase another bottle, surprisingly I would not find it anywhere (not in whole foods don't know why). I was very worried that I was being taken out of the market and that's how I found this site. Great price! I am super happy !

- Andrea

Fresh and Clean

I love this cleanser. A little bit goes a long way, and it foams naturally. My face always feels nice, clean, and fresh after using. It takes off my face makeup; I've never tried it on my eye makeup, but my eyes are very sensitive so I probably won't try that. I have sensitive, dry, skin and this works great, no irritations. Regarding other reviews saying their skin felt dry - well, it's not a "moisturizing' cleanser. It doesn't make my skin feel stripped or super dry at all afterwards - but you do need to moisturize afterwards just like you would with any cleanser. Love it

- Julia

Coconut Cleansing Face Wash

I love the Coconut Face wash. It is not drying and great eye make up remover. It doesn't take much. Great product.


Revised Review

I've changed my mind about this product. I have used DHC face cleanser for years and unfavorably compared this cleaner to DHC and was disappointed. No longer. It's great stuff and I've given a bottle to each of my three daughters who also think it's super. It cleans my skin, removes makeup, and leaves skin feeling soft, and never dry. One big plus for my family is that it's cruelty-free.

- Joan

Great product

Leaves my face feeling clean and refreshed. Lathers nicely too. Glad I discovered this brand.

- Danielle

Not for dry skin at all

Not sure why everyone loves it. It left my face very dry and tight. I didn't find the smell pleasant either. Unfortunately, I bought 2 and the body wash because of great reviews. I didn't want to waste it so I put shea oil on face first as a buffer. I wouldn't buy again. I even tried it as a hand wash and it left my hands dry too. Putting in essential oils to use as hand wash.

- Pamela

Not for me

I can appreciate the clean feeling this product gave me, however I didn't care for the scent or how dry it made my skin feel when it dried. It also gave me a slight bring sensation. So rather then waste it I'm using the remainder of the bottle for hand wash.

- joan

Fair trade coconut facial wash

At first I thought I would not like it because it has a watery consistency, but when I began using it I found it to be a very good facial wash. Doesn't dry out my face at all.



The only thing I didn't like is the smell, I was expecting it to smell like coconut . . .


Love it!

After years of struggling with breakouts and terrible cleansers that either dry out my skin or leave me feeling greasy I'm so glad I found Everyday Coconut. It's mild enough not to irritate my skin but still does an excellent job of removing makeup and excess oil without over drying. I pair it with an herbal toner and my skin has never looked better.

- Randi


I've been using this face wash for a week, my skin has never been clearer. Love his product, highly recommend.

- kathleen


a little dry but overall good facewash

- dana

Face wash

Smells nice but too drying to my face--not enough moisture. Seems slightly harsh.

- DD

Very Pleasantly surprised

Bought it because of the great price to use on my body, but it is indeed wonderful for the face as well, and I have sensitive skin.

- Mon

My holy grail face wash!

I have repeatedly repurchased this cleansing face wash. It removes eye and face make-up beautifully without burning my eyes or drying my skin out. My face loves it and Thrive's price point is fantastic for this quality product.

- Sparkle

A LIttle Goes A Long Way

I have been using this product for over 6 months now and very happy with the results. I'm prone to get mild acne on my cheeks, I have tried so many different products that did not work on my oily prone skin until I tried this. I love how it lathers and it only takes one pump that washes my face and neck. I love this product and not to mention the price. Thank you Alaffia for this awesome product!

- Mitzi


I find that this cleanser does the job, however, I was expecting it to be creamy, more like coconut oil, and not a foaming face wash which I found to be drying.

- Joan Secord

Great gentle cleanser

I use this twice daily, in the morning and at night. A little goes a long way, and while it can sting my eyes a little if I don't have them clenched tightly shut, my skin is never left feeling tight after rinsing off. I have been using this cleanser for two months and have not experienced any breakouts on my sensitive oily/combo skin. I also use the their facial toning mist before applying rose hip oil to moisturize. Will be buying again!

- Stephanie

Good find

It is always so hard to find a good product that works for me. My skin is normal but slightly sensitive. This wash smells great, leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean, and its cruelty free!

- Jenifer

Removes Waterproof Eye Make-up!!!

Thrive Market, please keep this coconut cleansing face wash stocked! I recently switched to this facial cleanser/makeup remover after using an unhealthy, drugstore brand for nearly 15 years, and I'm so glad I did! Not only is this cleanser fair trade, it does not dry out my skin like other face washes. This is an irreplaceable part of my skin care regimen. Thank you.

- Veronica


I love this cleanser smells great just like a coconut and a little goes a long way. It makes your face feel soft . It will make your face look healthy and clean. No need for facial lotion. work well for people with really bad dry face l

- Racheal


This is definitely my new face wash! I have used Earth Science for over 15 years... tried a few other brands here & there... but this product not only leaves your skin clean without any residue, but leaves it feeling moisturized. You can feel the a definite difference after washing. My previous brand is a great cleanser, but it leaves my skin feeling tight and dry... always needing to moisturize afterwards. The Fair Trade Coconut Face Wash moisturizes with coconut oil, leaving my skin refreshed, soft & clean.

- Brandi Jo


Smells very gingery. 4 stars because it dries my skin. If I forget to put on moisturizer after, im pretty much screwed even though I have oily skin, it still makes me flaky. But it cleans really well. Gets makeup off too. As long as you moisturize, you'll be good

- Zhanna

So Happy To Have Found This

I quit using face wash years ago because I couldn't find something that wasn't filled with chemicals but still made my skin feel great. This product has been such a wonderful discovery! Since I haven't been using a cleanser for so long I only use this every now and then if I wear make up, but it lathers so nicely and washes everything away while not putting terrible toxins and crap into my skin. This has more of a coconut smell than the body wash does and I totally love it. And seriously for this price you need to at least just try it!

- Emmy

Mild multipurpose shower soap

I don't love the smell but it's not bad either. Nice mild soap for face and shaving in the shower.

- Lora

Very clean & natural feeling

Great face wash. I am super picky about my face wash and I highly approve of this face wash. It is so natural that you can eat it (although you shouldn't and please don't attempt). Leaves my skin feeling refreshed, morning and night.

- Camille

Great face wash

I love this face wash and all the other products I have ordered of this brand. It lathers nicely but is also easily rinsed off and leaves me feeling clean and ready to moisturize. I love how this brand always uses the best, natural ingredients. I will continue to order this product and more!

- Olive

Not for dry skin

I love the environmentally conscious factor of this brand so I bought it. I have combination skin and after using this product my face feels clean (it's pretty gentle), but my dry areas feel extra dry. If you have dry skin and use this product, you'll def need a moisturizer or face lotion after. Overall, it didn't wow me, but it's a good product.

- Kaleigh

Sudsy and fresh

I like how sudsy it gets with a small amount and the clean and fresh scent. It is a little drying, so definitely need to follow up with a moisturizer.

- Elizabeth

Reallly Nice Face Wash - 2/2016 Review

I tried this product based on other reviews. I have combination skin and found that I also have sensitive skin when it comes to new products. They either make my skin all red or tight and itchy. This says 'safe for all skin types' and it's true. Also I love how large the bottle is for the price! You need a very small amount and it lathers nicely. I also use the toner that goes with the facewash but a different moisturizer as the reviews were hit or miss for this brand. Every other day I use an exfoliant face scrub from Acure to help with the dead skin, especially in this dry winter.

- Karina

Nice product

This face wash smells good, works well, and is a great price for an all-natural product. I'm very glad I've found it!

- Megan

Love this!

I have combination skin and would get dry patches on my cheeks if I didn't use a cleanser with micro beads. Since I know how terrible micro beads are for the environment I wanted to try something different. I gave this a shot not knowing what to expect and I love it! It's the dead of winter and no dry patches in sight! It also does a great job of removing my makeup, including my stubborn mascara :)

- Tania

Cleans Off Make-Up

I wear make-up every day, and as such, I need to wash my face everynight with a good, comprehensive cleaner that doesn't dry out my skin. This works perfectly. I don't need to use a lotion after cleaning with it, and it takes off most of my make-up with no problem. The foundation, eye shadow, blush, and lipstick come off just fine. It does have a bit of a problem with mascara, but it doesn't burn my eyes or hurt if I get it in my eyes on accident, so I can't complain too much. Smells great too.

- Karen Guillory

Very Powerful!

You only need one pump to do face and neck. It feels great!

- Hailie

Love it!

I have sensitive skin that turns red at the drop of a hat. This cleanser is gentle yet cleans my face really well. I will be buying it again!

- Jane


I used barely a full pump and it lathered up like crazy it smells nice, feel great after I cleanse I love this and the price amazing.

- Shana

Best face wash you can buy!!

I've tried many different face washes and none have helped my combination skin, until this one! I've been using this face wash for over a year and I seriously haven't had dry or oily skin. My skin is just sort aND grest now. My bottle has also lasted this whole time, so the price is unbeatable. I use it night and morning to cleanse my face and remove makeup. It does both PERFECTLY. You won't regret this purchase.

- Thrive User

Amazing Product

I have red blotchy skin. I started using this and the red blotches are gone! I feel clean but not dry. Love this product.

- Melissa

Nice product!

Gentle and effective. Great for everyday cleansing.

- Shelby


I live in the mountains where the air is very dry. I like this simple basic wash, because it leaves my face clean without the dry tightness I get from some facial cleansers or the film left behind by others. I have used it for at least a couple of years and will continue to do so. The price is nice, too.
