The perfect balance!
Purchased

This face wash is wonderful. My skin has really cleared up since using it. It seems to do all it says, cleans but doesn't dry out. And I love the minty smell, it is very refreshing. I agree with the other comments, you don't have to use much, so I'm happy this will be lasting me a long time!!

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!

Obsessed with the scent/feeling
Purchased

This face wash brings BRIGHTness to my skin! I love using it especially in the mornings before make-up. The smell makes me feel like I just got out of a spa. A very tiny bit goes SUCH a long way, it's totally worth it! I've had it for about 5 months now and still not finished!

Top-Quality Lathering Cleanser

This is a frothy, refreshing daily cleanser, one that I use regularly with a scrub brush. It leaves my mostly oily skin feeling even, smooth, and clean if slightly (very slightly) tight. As with any frothing cleanser, I have to immediately apply moisturizer after use to keep the upper layers of skin from drying and flaking. A VERY little bit goes a long way, nowhere near the "quarter-sized" portion recommended in the instructions.

While I personally often pair this cleanser with another non-lathering oil cleanser to better break up oil and make-up, in general, this balanced cleanser is easy to recommend for almost any skin type.

Long time user
Purchased

I have been using this cleanser for many years now and love that birchbox has this product. I have combination skin, especially in the summers I can get quite greasy. This does not take off eye make up well, so you will need to take it off before using. But it works well on my skin to cleanse without drying. I used to have black heads on my forehard and this really cleared them up and continues to keep them clean.

Origins Skincare is the best!
Purchased

I am in love with Origins Ginzing moisturizer and ran out of my current face wash. I was so nervous about trying this bc my skin is very sensitive and on the dry side. I thought this would be too strong or drying but again, Origins has me covered and it has been wonderful.

Clean rinsing, non drying, lots of lather for a small amount

I purchased this product in full size after receiving a sample from a different beauty retailer. I for one almost NEVER purchase full size from sample unless I feel I absolutely cannot continue my skin care routine without it. The amount of clean, fresh smelling lather you get from a dime sized amount is phenomenal!! It removes all traces of makeup, including water resistant mascara (as long as you don't have multiple layers of the stuff on your lashes mixed with eyeliner too; for that you'll still need a mild eye makeup remover). All in all, my combination skin stays breakout free, soft and feeling clean without tightness. It has been a staple in my skin care routine for years now!
