Stinky and no "clean" feeling
Purchased

I really hate the way this smells (kind of like flowers and cigarettes), and my face never feels particularly clean after using it. After a few days I feel like grime has built up on my skin, and find myself rotating in an exfoliating wash much more frequently than with other cleansers.

It does get very foamy, so if that's your priority, this is for you.

Smooth sailing

Really does get foamy and frothy while you wash. One of the only face wash brands that doesn’t leave my skin thirsty! I’m going to buy the full size when I run out of the trial my sister gave me

Effective

The entire origins line smells wonderful. Only a tiny amount of product is needed. No chemicals or parabins in any of their products.

Just a tiny bit

Boy this stuff lasts forever! You just need to use an amount that is like 1/3 the size of a pea and make a lather in your hands. The lather is thick and plentiful. It smells minty, like toothpaste, it feels amazing on your face and rinses clean. Great stuff!

Love this product. I received a sample of this in my monthly subscription box and it was love at first froth. after using up my sample I bought the full size wash and have been using this for over a year morning and night. Im always on the watch for something better for my skin care and this is it for my wash. I have combination skin and this makes my face feel squeaky clean and pretty with out that tight dry feel. I love the smell and the feel to boot.

Harsh on my skin

This product and brand are not for me. I wish this were gentler.

So refreshing!
Purchased

Everything about this face wash makes me happy. The texture. The delicious smell. The way my face feels afterward. I can't use it every day, or it will dry me out. But it's peeeeerfect for alternating every other day with something creamier and more moisturizing.

Still a fave
Sampled

I got this a while back in a birch box and it is still my go to face wash! I break out with almost every face wash I’ve tried, except this one! I love the minty smell! It’s cooling, it’s frothy, and you can feel how clean your face gets! It also tightens my skin and seems to help keep my pores smaller. So glad I found this product through birch box!!
