Cleansing is only part of the battle. Use ORIGINS Modern Friction Exfoliator™ two to three times a week to slough away dead skin.

ORIGINS

Birchbox Breakdown

From oily T-zones to the parched skin around our lips, our list of skin concerns is as extensive as our shoe collection. But thanks to this smart cleanser, tricky combination skin has never been so easy to manage. The gentle foaming formula is laced with a unique blend of botanicals that balance oil production while softening dry areas. Make this the first step of your regimen, and watch your skin worries diminish (leaving you more time for life’s finer pleasures — like shopping).

How it Works

This creamy cleanser is a veritable plant powerhouse. Broad leaf kelp banishes excess oil, while wheat protein nourishes dry zones. Water-activated tourmaline whisks away dirt and makeup, and an essential oil blend of bergamot, lavender, and spearmint adds a refreshing touch. Skin is left smoother and more even-toned.

How to Use

Wet your face. Work a quarter-size amount of cleanser between your palms, adding lukewarm water to create a rich foam. Massage into skin, avoiding the eye area. Rinse off, and follow with the matching ORIGINS serum and moisturizer.

One of my favorite cleansers
Purchased

I love Origins products! This cleanser smells like mint & chamomile and forms a milky froth when you rub it on your skin. Leaves my face feeling tingly and moisturized.

So clean!
Purchased

This stuff takes every bit of makeup off your face in one try without irritating your skin at all. It's helped to balance my oily T-zone, and I love the texture, cool minty feel and scent.

I do wish, however, that it didn't make my skin feel squeaky after using it. It's not tight per se, just feels oddly squeaky after rinsing.

Really nice
Purchased

This face wash was sort of a splurge, but I'm glad I did! It leaves my face feeling really clean and I love the way it smells. I do wish it exfoliated a little more, but that's just me.

Love

The scent is light, it is a nice creamy cleanser. Doesn't leave a soapy residue and my face feels clean when I am done. It suds, but I wouldn't say that it "foams up". Very easy on the skin.

Love Love Love This Product!

I have been using this absolutely amazing face wash for many years. Like many! It's my only go-to product for washing my face and I love it just as much now as years ago when I first discovered it. Yes, a little goes a long way. Mine lasts me for months. I've tried pretty much every face wash on the market, including some through Birchbox and haven't found one that even comes close to this.

I love everything about it...the hydrating factor, that it doesn't make my face feel tight after washing, the fragrance...so divine and the multitude of natural ingredients. Origins knows how to do it, and I plan to use this forever through the ages of time!

Oh...did I say I loved it?!?

perfect daily cleasner
Purchased

I have oily skin and this is a perfect daily cleanser for me. It even smells a little minty. My skin is clean and refreshed every time after I use it. It also works nicely with my electric face wash brush.

I love this product!

It is definitely true that a little goes a long way. And by a little, what I mean is that I only use about a pea sized amount of this every night when I wash my face. The fact that you don't need to use a lot each time also makes it a lot easier to justify the cost of the purchase. It will last you a while.

The product itself is great for my combination skin. The froth is rich and silky, and takes off all of my makeup, including mascara. It doesn't leave my skin feeling dry at all.

Love it!

Good for combination skin
Purchased

I was not blown away by this product, but I don't have any complaints either. It does what it claims to do- my skin does not feel oily or dry after using it, though maybe a little TOO clean. Smells nice and subtle. If your skin is sensitive or on the dryer side this is probably not your product.
