Cleansing is only part of the battle. Use ORIGINS Modern Friction Exfoliator™ two to three times a week to slough away dead skin.

ORIGINS

Birchbox Breakdown

From oily T-zones to the parched skin around our lips, our list of skin concerns is as extensive as our shoe collection. But thanks to this smart cleanser, tricky combination skin has never been so easy to manage. The gentle foaming formula is laced with a unique blend of botanicals that balance oil production while softening dry areas. Make this the first step of your regimen, and watch your skin worries diminish (leaving you more time for life’s finer pleasures — like shopping).

How it Works

This creamy cleanser is a veritable plant powerhouse. Broad leaf kelp banishes excess oil, while wheat protein nourishes dry zones. Water-activated tourmaline whisks away dirt and makeup, and an essential oil blend of bergamot, lavender, and spearmint adds a refreshing touch. Skin is left smoother and more even-toned.

How to Use

Wet your face. Work a quarter-size amount of cleanser between your palms, adding lukewarm water to create a rich foam. Massage into skin, avoiding the eye area. Rinse off, and follow with the matching ORIGINS serum and moisturizer.

Great for combination skin! Smells amazing!
Purchased

This is my go-to cleanser in the shower. It is light, frothy, smells amazing first thing in the morning, and does a great job of cleaning my vehemently combination skin without drying it out!

My favorite facewash
SampledPurchased

This product is fantastic for my sensitive skin. It never dries me out, a little goes a long way, and it smell great. 5 oz doesn't seem like much but because it's so frothy, it doesn't take more than a pea sized amount to get a great lather.

Medium Combo Skin

Little goes a long way- great daily cleanser! Works well alone or with a face loofah/ buffer. If you're going to splurge on a face wash I recommend this one.

Love!

I was looking for a new cleanser and sampled this one. I bought the full size and have to say I love it. The minty smell is wonderful and not over powering -- it is simply amazing! It leaves my skin feeling clean and refreshed but not tight. Thank you Origins!

Great everyday face wash
Purchased

I really like this face wash. It smells great and is perfect for everyday use. It doesn't dry out my face at all. My only complaint is that if I get it in my eyes by accident it stings, which I haven't experienced before. I use it with my clairisonic nightly which I feel like makes it even better.

Great Face Wash
Purchased

I love this minty face wash. It smells great and I love the way my skin feels so clean and soft after using this product. A dime size completely covers my face. This product last and is a great price point.

The perfect balance!

After using this product for a little over a year, I can safely say that I will never use another cleanser! The lather is so frothy, and perfect for my combination skin. The fact that I don't have to use a large amount, and it still leaves my skin feeling soft and clean is a huge bonus in my book!

Excellent cleanser

I bought the smaller size a few months ago and I'm just now running low on the product! I'm a huge fan of Origins products and this cleanser is no exception. I love the way it smells and how it makes my skin feel squeaky clean without drying it too much.
