I typically love Origins products but this cleanser is a total bust for me.
Not only does it seem drying to the skin...it doesn't completely remove makeup like other cleansers I use. It is amazing the amount of makeup left over. (thank goodness I use a toner or I would never remove the make up.

I was disappointed with this product. I like the brand and expected this to live up to the brand, but it didn't. The smell is not good. It's not scent free, but the scent is not good. I can get past that though. After I used this product my skin felt like I had used a hotel soap bar on my face. It didn't do anything special, so I will be keeping my drug store wash.

Burned Eyes
Sampled

I used this product at the end of the day to clean my face of makeup before going to bed. This product caused significant burning and discomfort for about 15 minutes. I will not recommend this product and the rest of it is going in the garbage.

I do not like this product. I like the one I have been using.

I already own this product and I didn't like it personally for myself. It's just not for my skin type.

I am clearly having a different experience

This did NOT work for me. It basically treats my face the same way a cheap-o wash you'd get in a motel would. As another reviewer mentioned, it is incredibly drying and if it even gets anywhere near the eye is super-painful. I will use up the rest of the sample I bought (in the cleanser kit), but I would never consider buying a full-size one. The description of "gentle" was, for me, completely false.

terribly drying, leaves nasty residue

I absolutely abhor this face wash. It doesn't remove makeup completely, dries every last bit of moisture from your face, and beware if you get it in your eyes, it's like pepper spray. It leaves a gross chalky filmy residue on your face after using. If you use it more than a few times I am sure your face will go into overdrive producing more oil to compensate, and cause breakouts. Terrible horrible face wash, I threw it in the trash! I have combination skin.

DRIES MY SKIN OUT!!!
Sampled

Which does not make any sense...it is a cream wash, but it even did the same thing to my boyfriend and we have completely different skin types, mine is excessively dry and his is oily. Would not recommend, PERIOD!
