This has been my go to cleanser since 2001. I always try other cleansers and always end up back to this one. If you have oily, acne prone, clogged skin that's hard to normalize this has been life saving for me and recommend you try it. If you have really dry or really sensitive skin and are scared to try it or if this doesn't work for you they have a much gentler one called Thoroughly Clean Face Wash with Green Tea & Sunflower and I think you can only find it on amazon now. That one is just as effective without the slight stinging sensation or really strong tea tree smell. Both are good tea tree cleansers. I use the Green Tea & Sunflower one in the winter. I follow them up with the burt's bees blemish touch stick which is also tea tree and it works great. Desert Essence's tea tree stuff is really reliable. Other people have mentioned this was stripping or it left a film and I have never had those issues at all. Your skin does feel squeaky clean but not stripped and I feel no film what so ever. I used this for 10 years like any other face wash before I read the actual instructions on the back which says to rub your face with it for 60 seconds which feels like a bit too much for me so I probably do 30-40 seconds. Overall it's awesome and it's all natural and cruelty free too :) PS I forgot to mention if you already bought this and it's too strong you can dilute it 50/50 with water which is how I started out using it.
