After exfoliating, hydrate and help fade lines and wrinkles with ORIGINS Starting Over™ moisturizer.

ORIGINS

Birchbox Breakdown

We never used to look forward to scrubbing, but all that changed when we found this natural exfoliating cleanser. It keeps skin looking fresh and smooth without the irritation of other sloughs. The star ingredient is rice starch, which binds with water molecules to banish dirt and dead skin.

How it Works

This slightly grainy formula is loaded with rice starch, a natural exfoliator that gently removes dull, dead skin. A host of other time-tested ingredients offer backup support. Aloe leaf juice calms, cucumber extracts soothe, and antioxidant-rich vitamin C battles the free radicals that cause skin damage.

How to Use

Two to three times a week, scoop onto fingertips and massage over dry, clean skin in circular motions. For sensitive skin, massage over damp skin. Add a splash of water and work into a gentle lather. Rinse well.

Great product

I use this as a face wash and it's really great for sensitive skin. Doesn't irritate or dry out my face.

Great product

I wouldn't use this everyday, but this is a great product for one a week. I tried it as a sample first from Orgins. I would do that at the store and come back here and buy it. See if it is for you.

Effective but HARSH

I was surprised by how harsh this product was given how gentle the other origins products I use are. I have combination skin that is super sensitive, and this really hurt my face. The exfoliating beads are huge and my whole face turned red after using this and felt very raw. I do not recommend this for people with very sensitive skin.

Amazing

This was an amazing product. It came in a sample pack that I recovers after trying some other origins products. I've been using it every morning and my face feels amazing. I love the smell as well!

Best Exfoliator

I had a free skincare facial at the Origins store and have been a convert since. This dermabrasion works perfectly though I recommend using a face wash first for best results.

Love this product!
Purchased

I have always loved Origins products. The smell is wonderful. This product works. My pores looked clean after use. If you have dry skin, make sure to use a good moisturizer because I did experience some dryness. Overall, great product.

Favorite Exfoliator
Purchased

This is one of my favorites for exfoliating. It's gentle but effective. My skin always feels clean and smooth afterwards. It's not too harsh on the skin and make up always applies a lot better after I've used this first. I would recommend using it every other day in the shower.

Nice cleanser, odd texture
Purchased

I understand that rice is a primary ingredient, but I can't get over how odd it feels and smells. The function of the cleanser is really good though. And it gently exfoliates, which is very important for anyone with sensitive skin. If you can get over the texture and smell, it's a great product.

Just wonderful!

I just purchased this product based on my need for a new exfoliater and the product reviews. I like it because it has a wonderful gritty texture that really does smooth out your entire face and it smells good too. I also think the price point is fair for the product
