This face wash is wonderful. My skin has really cleared up since using it. It seems to do all it says, cleans but doesn't dry out. And I love the minty smell, it is very refreshing. I agree with the other comments, you don't have to use much, so I'm happy this will be lasting me a long time!!

wanted to love it
Purchased

This product got great reviews. I, on the other hand had to return it. I broke out all over my forehead, and my esthetician noticed my pores were very clogged.
Wish I could've loved this, it foamed up great and had a great scent.

Not what I expected
Purchased

I had high hopes for this face wash since origins is a well known brand,but after using this product for three consecutive days, twice a day my skin broke out horribly. At first I thought that it would clear and continued to use it for four weeks. I saw no improvement and continued to break out in large pimples. Since I stopped using this my skin is almost completely clear again. So just a warning, it doesn't work for everyone.

drying!

This stuff dried my face out severely that even though I stopped using it and slathered on heavy duty moisturizer (origins starting over moisturizer with mimosa) I still had to go to the dermatologist and get prescription corticosteroids to clear up the huge dry patches on my face!

It made me break out in hives!!! Which was a first for me. I'm sure it's a great product just not for my super sensitive skin.

Not a big fan of face wash. I absolutely hate using soup-like produces on my face.. it gets me all dried out afterwards. Not if Birchbox can give us face-lotion, that would be more helpful <3

I can only use cleansers specified for acne in order to avoid major break-outs. Will probably give this away to someone with less troublesome skin.

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.
