Desert Essence Review

Editor's Review: 2.7 / 5.0

Desert Essence is a skincare company based in Hauppage, New York that utilizes ingredients found in the desert, aloe vera and jojoba oil, as well as tea tree oil, green tea and coconut oil, to improve skin health. The company’s website itself is easy to navigate and contains mostly information about its products. Desert Essence’s products include basic skincare products as well as bath and body oils, haircare, dental care, bodycare and facial care. All of the products sold by this company are cruelty-free, and some of the products are organic. Desert Essence products are available from the official website, and from other online and offline retailers.


There is not much information available about the company Desert Essence except for its commitment to using quality ingredients. Desert Essence only offers refunds on unopened products, however they do replace products that have been damaged in shipping. Desert Essence does not offer any free trials or samples of its products on its website.

  • It is not clear if these products are any more effective than other leading skincare products available online.


Desert Essence is a skincare company developed to offer products from the desert like jojoba oil and aloe vera, however it now includes other key ingredients in its products like tea tree oil and coconut oil. It does not offer refunds on opened products, and it does not offer free samples. The website itself is easy to navigate but mostly just includes information on purchasing its products. There is a line of products that are organic, as well as some vegan products available from this company. All products made by Desert Essence are animal cruelty-free. Overall, Desert Essence has some admirable policies toward sustainability, however its refusal to refund opened products or offer free samples does not instill trust in the effectiveness of its products.
