Ok so first off my skin is very dry but not sensitive. I do not like foamy cleansers like this. I prefer oil cleansers. I tried this years ago and wasn't happy with it and tried it again all week because I was sent it for free in my voxbox to review it ( though my review is my own even though it was free). With my dry skin this is just too much, I felt like I was stripping it off all moisture. The only way I could make this work was after jogging on the treadmill when my face is gross and sweaty. I take a shower at the gym and kept this in my gym bag thinking it's probably a good cleanser for sweat. And it really is, but it isn't something I would buy because I still think while my face was super clean it got tight feeling quick. Oily skin folks might be better off using this, just too drying for my skin. #DiscoverOrigins

Great cleanser for combo skin. I love how it foams up and the scent is amazing! Something that I love is the fact that it rinses of your face so quickly (because of the Tourmaline, I believe)! 10/10 Recommend!

I don't know why I stray from this wash, but as soon as I do I come running back bc nothing compares. I am oily, acne prone, late 20's skin that is extremely sensitive to BP, salycilic acid, etc. this stuff cleans my face and I get zero breakouts with it!!! It's literally the only thing that doesn't make my face blow up with red inflamed acne. It is a very 'squeaky clean' type of cleanser, lots of people don't like it bc it's stripping, but if you're super oily like me you will prob love it. Another pro-I have white towels, and when I use this, there is no trace whatsoever on my white towels of makeUp. I've never had that happen before with a cleanser.

Great at makeup removal but was just too drying and I have oily skin. I love the clean feeling afterwards but it just was too much. I think it would be good for acne prone skin and drying it up though.

This is very creamy and has a minty smell. It washes ALL of my makeup off. It can leave my skin a little dry in areas, but I have combination skin that leans a little more dry than oily. My problem is the mint, it absolutely burns my eyes, every time. I just can't use it. Ask for a sample before buying to be on the safe side. If youdo Not have any eye stinging and your skin is oily/combination I think you will love this.

While it is very creamy and does get all my makeup off, perfect for sensitive skin, I found it to be very drying and I used a drop. Left my skin dehydrated and I had to load up the moisturizer.

I have fair skin prone to redness, dryness, and clogged pores. In the three weeks I've been using this most of my clogged pores are gone and my skin is smooth and moisturized with reduced redness. To cleanse my face I have been using Origins Micellar cleanser to remove makeup, Checks and Balances to wash my face and Kiehl's ultra facial cream. The difference has been huge and I credit it to the cleanser and the moisturizer. Cleanser is creamy and smells like spearmint. A little difficult to wash off but leaves my skin clean but not dehydrated. Favorite cleanser ever and I've tried so many!

A little goes a long way for morning cleansing and for makeup removal in the evening. I must moisturize very very well after use because it doesn't balance at all! It definitely works to reduce my breakouts. It also dries my combination skin a lot. The mint smell is a little strong. My friend who thinks this is too drying compares the smell to toothbrush. Another friend, with oily skin, loves the cleanser.

I think I had breakout on my face because of this. So many great reviews about this product but I don't like it.

I bought this in June and decided that this was going to be my "summer cleanser" because I traveled to a lot of humid countries and because my skin gets super oily especially in the summer time. By the time I was at my first summer destination I became really oily and started breaking out due to sunscreen, pollution and wearing heavy makeup each night, so I washed my face morning and evening with checks and balances and at first my skin started to "purge" and I got really worried that this cleanser wasn't going to work out for me but then I went for a facial and my skin cleared up and I decided to give this cleanser a second chance and I'm so happy that I did! Because when I used it the second time my skin looked clear and shine free. The only thing I changed in my routine with checks and balances was to use it only in the morning because it was too harsh for me to use twice a day. Now it's August and my skin still looks amazing. Will definitely check out more origin products and I have decided that I will repurchase checks and balances again when it's empty.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
