Worked wonders for my skin!

I bought this a few months ago after several of my coworkers were raving about how much they love Origins' products. At the time it was towards the end of winter and my face had so many dry patches from both the cold weather and the harsh face wash I was using at the time. This wash completely changed the skin on my face. All of the dry flaky patches I had been dealing with for years are gone. The wash is very gentle, it gets middle frothy and has a very pleasant smell. My skin feels soft and refreshed every time I use it. A little goes a long was as well, so you definitely get your money's worth. I use this twice a day (morning and night) and I am just now getting close to the bottom of the bottle after having this for months.

To sum this up, do yourself a favor and get this face wash!! I promise you will not regret it, especially if you suffer from dry flaky skin like I did.

Clean but not dry

I always worry that a foaming face wash will dry my skin out but somehow Origins made one that doesn't. I use this even on the hottest, driest days of the year and my skin is refreshed and clean

This is hands down the holy grail of cleanser. Gets all the make-up off, leaves skin refreshed. Wonderful scent. Perfect!

Favorite cleanser
Purchased

I love this facial cleanser. It is very frothy and foaming, and has a great scent that wakes you up when you use it in the morning. My skin is smooth, and I never have dry areas. If you have combination skin, this is a must have!

Made skin dry

I received a sample of this in discovery kit and was not really impressed with it. Had and interesting fragrance that I am not really sold on and it made my skin feel dried out. I seemed to have more breakouts when using this cleanser as well. Not the right choice for me.

Great!
Purchased

I took a chance on this product based on great reviews and was not disappointed. The consistency is rich and doesn't leave my face feeling dry or oily, just balanced and fresh. Highly recommend for combination skin.

Frothy
Purchased

I found this to be a bit drying (but I do live in a cold, windy climate, so it may have just been the weather getting to my face). I liked the scent and frothyness and it did a great job taking off mascara and keeping my face free of breakouts. Overall, I do recommend it as a good go-to face wash.

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.

Look no further! Best face wash ever!

I went to the beach for a week and my face got so dried out from the sun. I tried this face wash and it was amazing! It 'corrected' my skin within 24 hours! My skin was in such bad shape prior to using this product that I thought I was going to call off from work for fear of being seen! P.S. I'm often told that I look much younger than I am and I give credit to THIS product. Must try!

Minty tingles

I was impressed with this one, especially the scent, which is minty. It feels cold on your face and cleans well but does not strip all your moisture away. A little also goes a long way.
