Too drying
Sampled

I was excited to try this product as I had heard great things about it. It dried my combination skin out and yet made me break out. It also didn't remove all of my makeup as claimed. Very disappointed, will not be purchasing.

Face wash
Sampled

Great lather, smells pretty good. While using this I really liked it, but after, when I washed it off my face felt kind of dry/tight. Couldn't wait to moisturize. Too me, that's not what I look for in face wash.

Ehh not really formulated for my skin type
Sampled

To be honest, I really didn't like this very much. It made my skin feel incredibly tight and dry after just one use. It may be because this is formulated for people with combination/oily skin but I run more along the combination/dry side. So this may work really well for people with really oily skin, but it's just not for me. It didn't really lather very well and the consistency was a bit thin. But, again, that may be because it's formulated for a different skin type.

Soapy Residue.
Sampled

I love the idea of this product, and have heard great things about this brand, but this particular product left a weird waxy/soapy residue, like I had just washed with a bar of Ivory soap. Not ideal.

Though I liked the mint added, I did not like that that actually wash. My face was more oily in the morning than usual.

Not right for my skin
Sampled

I'm sure this might work well for some people, but just not for me. After using it my face felt VERY dry & almost felt raw or like it was burning. Not a good product for my sensitive skin

Wasn't for me
Purchased

My skin type is moderately dry and pretty sensitive. I did my research on this product, and thought it would be mild enough to switch to from my previous brand. Unfortunately for me, this face wash is not going to work as an every day cleanser. After a couple days of using it, my skin felt stripped of it's natural oil and became dry and flaky- it actually felt like my skin (particularly under my eyes) was burned- it was red, and raw. I will say, it smells clean and subtle which I liked, and it lathers really well but in the end wasn't the best choice for me.

Normally a fan
Sampled

I have used Origins for many years and have recommended most of the products over and over. This one, not so much. It left a very sticky, soapy film on my face. I felt like I just couldn't rinse it off, no matter how little of it I used. Will not purchase or recommend.

Meh

I have very sensitive skin and this left my face feeling very tight. Almost like there was a film of residue restricting movement.
