I love this wonderful bubble bath. It has a creamy, gel-like texture that I love touching -- I scoop it out with my hand and put some under the running bath water. The scent seems to linger on my skin for longer than the body wash, and the large tub lasts a long time. This was such a good gift for my relatives, too, who've loved the scent.
I loved this lip color! I bought Wildflower and love the texture as well as the pepperminty flavor. It does tingle a little so I'd take care if I had chapped lips or overly sensitive lips, though.
I have combination/oily, sensitive skin and found this product to sting tremendously! I really gave it a try several times, to make sure I wasn't having a random reaction, but found that it was just too rough for me. I do love their newer "Calm Balm" (sensitive skin eye cream/lotion) and think it's a great substitute for some of us.
Although the smell was wonderful, I really didn't like the texture of this product (oily and rough at the same time), and was really afraid to use it in the bathtub. I used a little bit of it and found it irritating, but it may be that a very light hand is required. If you don't care for oily bath products I'd recommend that you stay away, but if you have very dry skin and use oils normally you may like this.
Gels/Soaps -Origins - Ginger Burst Savory body wash

I liked the body wash as an addition to wearing the Ginger Essence spray, and used it occasionally to moisturize and scent my skin in the bathtub. It is non-drying and smells wonderful, but the scent doesn't seem to linger as long as other bath products.
I used this product in the bathtub to cleanse my face and found that it really did a good job without overdrying it. I had combination/oily, sensitive skin, at the time, and did not had stinging or irritation problems with this cleanser. I like that it foams, and it does have a nice, non-offensive scent. It's good if you like the feel of cleansing with a sudsing soap, but hate the consequences :o)
I used several bottles of this treatment and really liked it. I had combination/oily, sensitive skin with some blackheads and occasional acne flareups, and found that this improved the texture of my skin and also my acne problems, but not immediately. I think with twice-daily use it may help anyone with problems, but a stronger BHA solution is needed to really fight blackheads and "pore issues". The thing that I don't like about Clearance Time is the texture that it leaves your skin after using it -- in a strange way it has kind of a chalky feel, but it's not really matte or drying. It's also slightly sticky, so I tended to use it only at night when I didn't need to wear something over it.
Although I loved the scent of this product and occasionally need a moisturizing mask, it irritated and stung my skin so much after application I had to wash it off immediately. I tried it several different times to make sure I wasn't just having a bad skin day. I have combination/oily, sensitive skin (I'm a PPP with redness), and this was just not the right product for me.
Moisturizers -Origins - Matte Scientist [DISCONTINUED]

I loved this for my combination/oily/sensitive skin, but have moved on to other moisturiers. It definitely provided a smooth base for makeup, and doesn't sting or irritate my sensitive spots like some other Origins products. The smell is light and not annoying, and the texture is great. It has a slight cooling effect while drying and makes your face feel so soft and smooth.
