I bought a whole Make a Difference Origins-kit a little while back, and this is by far my favorite Origins cleanser!! It removes ALL my makeup, even stubborn eyeliner and mascara (haven't tried waterproof mascara though). It also gives a lot of moisture, is not oily in any way, makes my skin glowy and nice and smells so good i want to eat it! I massage it to my dry face to remove my makeup, add some water, massage again and rinse. It works like a charm! Will never be without this cleanser and will buy it as long as it's in store! It really has made a difference!
Toners -Origins - make a difference skin rejuvenating treatment lotion

I bought a Make a Difference kit in a sale and started using it all at the same time. I went from a shiny, breakout, flaky troll to a clear and glowy angel in TWO days! ever since I've used, and loved, this line. I'm not sure if I've truly need the toner, but I really enjoy the smell and feeling of it!
I like this in the wintertime, but its too heavy for the summertime! In the winter it sinks in well, rejuvenate the skin and make the skin glow. I'm not sure if I like this or the Make a difference ultra-rich cream better for winter. Will make up my mind in 6 months or so, when the summer is over and a new season starts!

This is a good cleanser, but not the best I've tried! The Make a difference cleanser is better, but this is not bad. Pros: - Not drying like Checks and balances - Foams up quite nice, but not too much - Do not break me out Cons: - Smells weird to me - Does not remove makeup well - Does nothing for my break outs - Runs out quickly My skin stayd the same with this one. There were no improvement in my skin to purchase it again, but it didn't make my skin worse either..
This is a good and light eye cream. Like that it has a highlight effect. This makes you look more awake and fresh. I do not have any puffiness, so I do not know how effective it is in that department.
This mask does nothing for my face. Not good or bad. It smells great, but dries out my skin a bit. After removing the mask, my face feel like before. It does not break out my skin, but does nothing for my breakout either. Don't know what it is suppose to do..
Love this scrub. It makes the skin soft as a baby. It's like a spa in the shower. Smells great and doesn't makes the skin red or blotchy. Just calmed and deep cleaned. Great product!
I love Origins! This was my first meeting with Origins and I fell in love! This is a perfect multipurpuse-product that I really enjoy using to remove my makeup at night. It's a makeup remover and cleanser in one. Takes makeup off like it was water.. It cleans out and tightens pores (no toner needed afterwards). It balances the skin and leaves no film nor tight feeling. and best of all: Calms the skin and don't block pores. It's my HG cleansing product, and I will never be without. BUT if my skin is tight/dehydrated can this be a bit drying. i alternate between this and the Make a difference cleanser! My two HG cleansers of all!

This is the best cream I've ever used! It makes me look healthy, radiant and nice. In the beginning this really broke me out and made my skin oily, but now I think it's because my skin was so dehydrated. All my skincare is now from Origins, and my skin has never looked better! My everyday makeup routine is like this: cleanser, this cream, a bit of Bare Minerals warmth, eyeliner and mascara! Thats it!

Before I found Origins my combinastion skin had severe acne, oily t-zone, normal cheeks, some flakyness, dull complexion, some redness and large pores.. Origins has agreed wih my skin from the first application! Now I've used Origins product for quite some time, but ran out of both the cleanser, daycream and toner when I was low on cash, so I had to wait a bit to repurchase. In the meanwhile my skin got back to how it was before I started using this line. About a month ago I came across a Make a Difference-kit in a sale. The kit contained a full size cream and a big sample-size of the cleanser, serum and toner in the same range, and it was ridiculously inexpensive, so i went for it! I used the whole line every evening and the cleanser and cream in the morning, and WOW! My skin cleared up in TWO DAYS! Literally! This will be my summer routine for sure! They offer a solution to my every skin problem, and keep my skin clear, nice and glowing! My makeup is now the bare minimun and I feel confident even without any makeup on! Will definitely repurchase again and again!

This is a really decent cream for winter, both day and night. Have used it all winter long, and now I'm saving it for the autumn. I LOVE that Origins have different versions of the same cream. That makes it easier to go from winter to summer. Pros: - Sinks into my skin like a charm - Hydrates well - Smells devine - My face does not freeze when the temperatures dropping - No breakouts, even when running etc - My skin feels soo soft and smooth - A jar lasts a long time for me (5 months maybe) NO Cons!
This toner is soooo good! It does everything a toner should do: prep for moisture, adjust ph level, rinse and tighten pores, fade acne and scars, normalize dry and oily patches. Pretty much perfect for my skin! Love this and will buy again for sure! Only con is that you run through it quickly. All the other Origins products has lasted a really long time, but not this. BTW: This only works when my skin is oily. Then it's a lifesaver! Otherwise it's to drying for my skin, so I can't use it every day.. But it is a really good product!
The second cleanser from Origins I've tried. i liked it at first (cleaned up all my blemishes and made my skin glow), but after a while my skin got REALLY dehydrated, tight, and dull. Pros: - Clean well deep down - The smell wake me up in the morning - A pea-size amount lathers like crazy - It lasts a looooong time (8-9 months) - Easy to take an vacation (nothing leeks out of the tube) Cons: - To drying (for my skin) - Stings my eyes - The lather goes everywhere (up my nose, ears..) - Can't be used as a makeup-remover Will not be repurchasing!
This leaves a film on the skin that I do not like. Do not remove mascara well either. You have to rub a lot to get everything off. Smells great tough.
I've had this for almost 2 years, used it almost every day and still have plenty left! Can't live without it! Have it in medium and it is the perfect shade for my brows. I have blond hair naturally (but color both my hair and my eyebrows), and the wax put them in place and fills them out. I get compliments on my brows constantly, and love a full natural brow. I've had this for so long that all the pretty artwork is all gone.. I should probably buy a new one before this turns old, and wil repurchase it again and again and again!
