Worked wonders for my skin!

I bought this a few months ago after several of my coworkers were raving about how much they love Origins' products. At the time it was towards the end of winter and my face had so many dry patches from both the cold weather and the harsh face wash I was using at the time. This wash completely changed the skin on my face. All of the dry flaky patches I had been dealing with for years are gone. The wash is very gentle, it gets middle frothy and has a very pleasant smell. My skin feels soft and refreshed every time I use it. A little goes a long was as well, so you definitely get your money's worth. I use this twice a day (morning and night) and I am just now getting close to the bottom of the bottle after having this for months.

To sum this up, do yourself a favor and get this face wash!! I promise you will not regret it, especially if you suffer from dry flaky skin like I did.

Clean but not dry

I always worry that a foaming face wash will dry my skin out but somehow Origins made one that doesn't. I use this even on the hottest, driest days of the year and my skin is refreshed and clean

Favorite cleanser
Purchased

I love this facial cleanser. It is very frothy and foaming, and has a great scent that wakes you up when you use it in the morning. My skin is smooth, and I never have dry areas. If you have combination skin, this is a must have!

Its just alright
SampledPurchased

I was excited to try this face wash because it was one of the highest reviewed products on birchbox, however I wasn't that impressed with it. I don't feel like my face REALLY gets clean with this stuff. It still feels grimy from the day after I wash it off, and if I am taking the time to wash my face, I want to be able to notice a difference. I don't feel like this face wash really gets into the pores like some of the other samples I have gotten. I also am not a huge fan of the smell. Its pretty strong.

Very creamy, comforting

This face wash makes my skin feel great. It is so rich and creamy, you only need a tiny bit to really get your face clean. I am now interested in other products by Origin.

Amazing
Purchased

This stuff really does what it says it will. Keeps acne at bay while not drying out your skin. It goes into a nice lather on the skin when you rub it in and just feels amazing. This is my favorite face wash and I will be repurchasing

LOVE IT
Sampled

I love this cleanser. It's kind of a hybrid of a cold cream and a cleanser. It's think and gives my skin kind of a cool feel. It doesn't feel greasy (like cold creams tend to do) and it really works to take off my makeup. I love it.
