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.

good

There wasn't anything I disliked about this product, it foamed nicely and didn't smell bad, I'm just not big on switching a face wash unless I have enough of it to give a fair trial.

Used to love this....
Sampled

This cleanser used to be a staple of mine. I was excited to try it again. My whole face broke out in a red rash after using this cleanser.

feels nice, but overall doesn't work well
Sampled

This cleanser feels great on. The problems I had were that it didn't remove my make up alone, and that it left a soapy residue feeling after using it.

Not For Me...
Sampled

I have used Origins in the past and I don't really care for the smell and the way it makes my skin feel...

Dried out skin
Sampled

I was disappointed in this product. After using it, it felt like I had washed my face with soap; my skin was tight and felt almost rubbery. The smell is a little odd too: smells like spearmint. Definitely a pass

Scent too strong
Sampled

I could not get past the 'lemon pledge' scent and could not use past the initial use.

A little weird
Sampled

I found that this wash left my face feeling "squeaky" clean like there was some residue that didn't completely rinse of. Not for me.

Made me break out
Sampled

I received this as a sample in my monthly Birchbox. I tried it and it had good consistency and an unusual smell. The smell wasn't necessarily bad, but I didn't really like the smell. After use I began to break and I hadn't used any other products yet that day. I have used several other face washes and I rarely break out. I'm sure this works great for some people, I just will not be using it again since my skin had a bad reaction.
