Follow up with ORIGINS Zero Oil™ Pore Purifying Toner to give shine a one-two punch.

ORIGINS

Birchbox Breakdown

The same traits that we attribute to Ryan Gosling are abundant in this one-of-a-kind cleanser: it’s strong, yet gentle. This foamy face wash is a paradox in a tube, managing to clean deep into pores without overdrying or irritating. Best of all, it controls your skin’s oil output for the rest of the day, so slick spots and shine will be MIA.

How it Works

Saw palmetto, a plant that’s indigenous to the southeastern United States, is a renowned oil zapper and antiseptic. Salicylic acid (our favorite acne fighter) clears up any excess oil that’s been plaguing your complexion. And our favorite ingredient, mint, leaves our face feeling tingly and oh-so-clean.

How to Use

Apply a small amount to damp skin and gently rub fingers in small circles. Rinse well and pat dry. Works best when used morning and night.

Fresh and Clean

Origins never disapoints. I love this face wash. I have oily skin and this really cuts through dirt and oil. This makes my face feel nice and clean I would highly recommend this.

invigorating!
Purchased

I use this in the morning, and the scent wakes me up, it's sort of minty and tingly but the scent doesn't last on your skin if you're worried about that. My skin is very combination so I alternate this face wash with an exfoliating face wash, a few times a week. I definitely notice that it helps with slick spots and shine during the hot months.

Kinda sorta good
Purchased

I'm not a HUGE fan of any product I can't get close to my eyes. It doesn't really help me take off my makeup...but it is very refreshing if your face is already clean.

Great for combination skin

I agree with many other reviewers in that I've tried a lot of different products for the oily parts of my combination skin and this is the best product I've found. I follow it with an Origins moisturizer and it works well.

So far so good

Have been using this for a few weeks. It leaves my skin feeling clean and helps fight acne without drying me out.

BEST for oily skin
Purchased

I've had oily skin, and breakouts, my entire life. I've tried, and been disappointed by, more products than I can count. This is the ONLY product I've ever tried that has dramatically reduced the oil factor on my skin daily. It's amazing! It does tend to dry my skin out a little more than I'd like (it is winter though), so I use a light moisturizer. But overall this is a FANTASTIC product. Give it a try!

it's a great purifying cleanser, i have very oily skin and it solves that problem but after a week of using this cleanser i started breaking out. it's great for once in a while use but not a good everyday cleanser

Perfect for Oily Skin!
Purchased

I love this face wash for my oily skin. The only downside is Origins packaging. If you drop the bottle the cap will break, leaving part of it in the opening and rendering the bottle useless. Other than that, it is a great product and very well priced.

Very nice

I love Origins, they are just a great brand and everything they put out seems to do exactly what it's supposed to. I intend to purchase more when this is gone.
