Product Review—Skin: Desert Essence Renewing Gel Cleanser



It’s the first step in any skin care regimen–cleansing.  While washing your face may not seem like rocket science, using the right cleanser can make a world of difference in the way your skin behaves. The right cleanser can literally make or break your skin’s glow.  I have been using Desert Essence Renewing Gel Cleanser for about 2 months now, and it’s worth recommending.

Desert Essence Renewing Gel CleanserHere are the details about Desert Essence Renewing Gel Cleanser:

• Gently exfoliates without stripping skin of natural moisture
• Helps reveal younger looking, more radiant skin
• Helps stimulate collagen synthesis

NEW! Reveal healthier, more radiant-looking skin with this gentle exfoliator that cleanses as it stabilizes skin’s natural structure. A blend of Willowbark Extract, Glycolic Acid, and 5 Alpha-hydroxy Acids—from Bilberry, Sugar Cane, Sugar Maple, Orange, and Lemon—helps wash away dead skin cells and reveal new ones, while Agave Cactus proteins help stimulate collagen synthesis to maintain skin’s firmness.

My results:
For the record:

My skin tone: Medium Brown with golden undertones

My skin type: Mature, dry with hyperpigmentation

I loved the name of this cleanser as it prominently states on the bottle “Age Reversal,” and I’m all about pushing the clock back! But, I was skeptical that a gel cleanser would be mild enough for my skin, since it is on the drier side these days.  However, I read the claims and dove right in with using this exfoliating cleanser. After the first cleanse, my skin felt great–clean, but not dry.I did find that using this cleanser promotes radiant looking skin, as my skin has a nice bright glow.

I am however a little wary of the claim that it “Helps stimulate collagen synthesis” as cleanser is on and off the skin in a short period of time.  I may have to contact the company to see if they have some proof of that claim. Overall, this is a great cleanser; one that I think that all skin types could use because of the formula.

    I’ve never heard of a gel exfoliating system before…sounds promising

    I have used Desert Essence Jojoba oil and it’s very good, so I based on this review I can only imagine that it is a good cleanser and might give it a try. I love organic or natural products that don’t contain a lot of harsh chemicals.
