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

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!

Made skin dry

I received a sample of this in discovery kit and was not really impressed with it. Had and interesting fragrance that I am not really sold on and it made my skin feel dried out. I seemed to have more breakouts when using this cleanser as well. Not the right choice for me.
