I initially used this when my sister abandoned it at the sink counter bc she didn't like it. I used it and my first impression was like WOW. my face felt kinda tight (I know it supposedly isn't really good to have that feeling), but damn the pores and my face felt clean.

Currently on my 3rd bottle of this and I feel like this does work (with my clarisonic!) LOL tbh cleansers feel kinda useless without a cleaning device since it seems to only clean the exterior skin.

There was a period of 2 weeks where nothing was breaking me out and my face was starting to clear up from a bad breakout, felt smooth and everything (most likely bc of this cleanser). However, I used a new primer the week after (bareminerals prime time lol) and I broke out big time!! my whiteheads are slowly decreasing and I think this product definitely helped big time!

Pros:
- didn't break me out
- I feel like it helps with my acne
- smell is really refreshing

Cons:
- doesn't help with oil control at all (but not like I expected it to anyway)

Overall, really love this product! I already have backups in my drawer anyway wahhaha

With the change of weather, my skin does not know if it wants to be oily or dry. I love how lightweight this cleanser is and how it cleanses well without drying out my skin. It's very lightly scented so I hardly even notice a scent. It seems to help minimize the oil on my skin. I would probably repurchase this product in the future.

Meh. It smells nice and isn't too expensive, but it's very foamy and didn't do much for my skin. It was way too drying and left my skin feeling rough. I also hate that it was SO foamy. It always ended up in my nose. I ended up using it as a body wash just so I could get through it faster.

I was literally so excited when i purchased this product the origins lady told me that this would be the perfect thing for my oily skin. Ive been using this along with the zero oil toner for 2 weeks now and my skin is oilier than ever and i've broken out in more spots since i started using this than i normally ever would. Especially on my cheeks/nose/chin, Ive even started getting cystic acne where the spots are really deep underneath the skin which i never ever had before. My skin is oily again after about 10 mins of using this. This product is over priced and i would not recommend this to anyone with oily spot prone skin it is way to harsh even if u use a good moisturiser afterwards!

I have been roughly usong this for a week and I have already seen great results. so heres some background about my skin, i used to have acne a few years back but now I only get a few spots here and there during my period. I have a huge problem with white heads and blackheads. anyways, before using this cleanser, I used to use Spectro and I loved it. but I noticed I was getting oiler during the day since its getting warmer so decided to get this. this helped me diminish some hard bumps under my skin (cystic) that wouldnt go away and its unsqueezable. these spots are almost gone. honestly this product is worth its price. I havent come across another cleanser thats as good as this. and let me tell you, this bottle will last u VERYY long. every use, you only need very little and it willl do its job. I honestly love this cleanser. in my opinion I think this cleanser would be best for combination/normal/slightly blemished skin

I've been really struggling with hormonal breakouts and I've been using Benzoyl Peroxide to try and get rid of the active acne on my face. It really only dried out my face. I was looking on Sephora for a natural cleanser and BAM! this pops up. Ive had friends use Origins skincare before and loved it. So I figured why not try it? And bought it. Although the price is $21, I don't mind because a little goes a long way. It should last me for a while.

I've only used the cleanser for a couple days now and wow! It helped close up some of my larger pores, shrunk any cystic acne and dried out the active pimples on my face. I was scared because of the mint in this cleanser but it doesn't affect my sensitive face at all!!

So happy I purchased this!

At first i didnt like it. because it broke me out like crazy.

After a while i go back at it. and it didnt help me and didnt cause me more acne.
Every week i will get a pimple or two.

I will not repurchase this again.

I really really like this cleanser. I'm quite happy with it. The first few tries I applied it with my fingers and it was a bit hard to get that 'foam' they say in the instructions and my skin didn't feel that clean. So I started using it with a little silicon pad (they're also called black head remover pad, cleansing pad...). BIG difference!! It foams in a second and is very easy to use.
The cleanser itself smells like my dish soap to be honest... but if you don't care about that, it's all good. It leaves my skin very soft and it's not irritating. The skin doesn't feel tight or tingling after rinsing it. I believe my skin looks better after I use it. No odd shines or redness. I would recommend it only if used with the silicon pad. (Works without it... but I just find it works best).
I still use the 'Fresh' Soy Cleanser from time to time. I like to rotate the cleansers.
Price was CAD$25.

I really really wanted to like this product, I have been battling with acne for over 7 years and I have tried everything, and read so many great reviews on this and decided to try it out. First, it dried my skin and made it look flaky, then it broke me out into cystic acne which I didn't have in years. The last thing that made me stop using this product, was I am on birth control pills and read online and spoke to my gyno that certain herbs can interact with BC, even through makeup since it can be absorbed into the skin. So I found out that Saw Palmetto is a herb that interacts with BC. Plus, I didn't really like the gel consistency it took to much to lather up. I really wanted it to work :(

After spending years trying to find the "perfect" cleanser that did what it said it would do, I finally found this. I've always had oily/acne prone skin and nothing has ever helped. This does! I can even use it in the winter without it being too harsh. The triple threat of using this cleanser along with the Zero Oil Toner and moisturizer are well worth the extra money spent. I have repurchased all of them repeatedly and will continue to do so. As usual, these products last forever because only a small amount of each is needed!
