Follow up with ORIGINS Zero Oil™ Pore Purifying Toner to give shine a one-two punch.

ORIGINS

Birchbox Breakdown

The same traits that we attribute to Ryan Gosling are abundant in this one-of-a-kind cleanser: it’s strong, yet gentle. This foamy face wash is a paradox in a tube, managing to clean deep into pores without overdrying or irritating. Best of all, it controls your skin’s oil output for the rest of the day, so slick spots and shine will be MIA.

How it Works

Saw palmetto, a plant that’s indigenous to the southeastern United States, is a renowned oil zapper and antiseptic. Salicylic acid (our favorite acne fighter) clears up any excess oil that’s been plaguing your complexion. And our favorite ingredient, mint, leaves our face feeling tingly and oh-so-clean.

How to Use

Apply a small amount to damp skin and gently rub fingers in small circles. Rinse well and pat dry. Works best when used morning and night.

No more shiny face
Purchased

I tried this face wash on a whim. It helped with my shiny face in the T zone area as well as any blemishes I had. I didn't find the formula overly drying and it left my skin refreshed. It does not remove makeup as effective as other cleansers.

One of my favs!
Purchased

I love most of the origins face wash and lotion products. This definately ranks towards the top of my list. Really helped with my acne as well as keeps my face moisturized.

Refreshing
Purchased

This is a refreshing face wash! I found it cleans thoroughly without drying my skin. I have oily, sensitive skin and it is gentle enough and doesn't aggravate my skin. I think this product teamed with the Origins toner has helped to clear up my skin. I'm going to order more Origins from this line!

Skin is noticeably better
Purchased

I bought this product on a whim, based on reviews. I really think it's made a noticeable difference in my skin after only a few weeks. A little goes a long way, which will make it last a long time.

Slow and steady
Purchased

I ordered this product a couple weeks ago based on all of the rave reviews. I was having a disastrous time with my skin -- blackheads, cystic acne, whiteheads under the skin, you name it. At first, I wasn't super impressed. It's certainly not an overnight cure -- after a couple days' use I didn't really notice a difference. But, after using it for a couple weeks, I am seeing an improvement in general tone and texture of my skin as well as a reduction in blemishes. They aren't totally gone yet, but I'm pretty sure I've narrowed that down to the moisturizer I've been using. I'm optimistic that this will continue to work, and I'll likely purchase again. It can be a little drying, so I'm definitely on the hunt for a moisturizer to follow up with.

lovely
Purchased

I have been looking forward to trying this Cleanser. I have very oily skin except for around my eyes and nose. I used just a small amount and it lathered up wonderfully. My face felt clean but not all dry, there is a very slight scent but nothing crazy. So far im loving this.

excellent product!
Purchased

I have sensitive combination soon so finding the right face wash can be tricky. I was attracted to this one from Origins because it us ingredient conscious and can help control oil without overdoing it. It does exactly that! My skin is noticeably better after about a week of use. Only a drop or so is needed and I use it 1-2x daily with my Clarisonic so it also seems like it will last me a long time. Oh, and I almost forgot to mention my favorite part - it's wonderfully refreshing and minty! This is my new go to cleanser.

Clearer Skin

After using this cleanser for about 2 weeks I noticed the difference in my skins clarity. My pores have diminished and my skin is nice and shiny!

Very happy, wish it took off eye makeup better
Purchased

I'm happy with this cleanser. It is gentle and makes my skin feel fresh and clean. The only thing I wish about this product is that it removed eye makeup more effectively. I know that's not it's purpose, but if I'm going to have a face wash, I hope that it takes everything off.
