my precious <3

this oil is perfect for melting down and removing my eye makeup and a bit od face massage before i rinse it. it smells wonderfully - something like lemon with a touch of ginger and hint of honey <3 i use it every evening as first step of my cleaning routine and i have to say that i've never ever had such a lovely skin on my face after washing it up. usually i lay it on my eyes and face, massage a bit, rinse and use my Bioderma Gel Mousse and sonic brush combo and i can tell the difference since i use Origins oil :)

apart from its performing on the skin and final effect, a little goes a ling way, so it makes this oil quite affordable option and it's worth its price.

I use this oil as second step of makeup removing routine (after using makeup wipes). I have a pretty minimal morning skincare routine but in the evening I always double cleanse- after this oil I use cleansing gel or mousse (with Mia 2 brush), then micellar water.

Pros: It removes makeup pretty well, is gentle, leaves my skin very soft. Doesn't break me out- I was afraid of that because I have acne prone skin. It also didn't cause allergic reaction.

Cons: I simply CAN'T get pass the scent of this oil. It's herbal but very strong and irritating- I have to hold my breath when I use it. Also, the packaging is horrible- luckily I had a spare pump and replaced the twist off cap with it. That way it dispenses rational amount of product and I have some kind of control over it, which is important especially because the consistency of this oil is very liquidy.

I won't repurchase because of unpleasant scent- yes, I dislike it that much. There are other better smelling or scent free cleansing oils out there.

It's the BEST cleansing oil ever.

It is olive oil based, very natual. It doen't hurt the skin.

Cleaning effect is very good. Easy for eye makeup or heavy makeup.

I've used at least 5 bottles since years ago. I'm still using it.

I love this cleansing oil to death! I use it as a makeup remover, and then follow up with a cream cleanser. You don't need to follow up with ANYTHING though, but because I like to be extra I do that :-) It takes away everything - just melts it off, and leaves my skin soothed, cleaned and not greasy nor tight at all! The only reason why I have to give it 4 lippies and not 5, is because you can't buy the extra pump to use instead of the lid it comes with here in Europe. That sucks big time, had to put it in another bottle with a pump. If you can - BUY THE GODDAMN PUMP! Or do like me - put it in another bottle with a pump!

I bought this product because it's easier for me to get than the DHC Deep Cleansing Oil (which i LOVE!), but I have to say the DHC one is just that tiny bit better.

CONS of the Origins one compared to the DHC one:
- Thicker in consistency
- Screw lit instead of pump
- Strong smell (which I don't really mind, but I can imagine some people will)

Other than these things I think it's pretty much the same as the deep cleansing oil.

This product is amazing. It takes off my makeup better than any other face wash and it makes my skin soft and clean. I have extremely sensitive skin and this product does not cause me to breakout. My skin can also be really oily and this is still great for it. Highly recommend.

I am 40 and have the worst acne-prone skin. I use Proactive, but when it got cold in NJ, my skin started drying out. I had ears that oily skinned people could use cleansing oils, so I asked a rep at Origins if this would work for me.

I have used it over a month and so far, so good! I still break out occasionally, but that happens regardless of what I use.

This product smells good and moisturizes my face without making it greasy. I would definitely recommend buying the pump to go in the bottle, otherwise you will use too much product.

This balanced out my skin without breaking me out terribly and I noticed my skin was softer right after I used it.

I would definitely purchase again!

This is my favorite cleansing oil by far, natural ingredients with no additional weird mystery chemicals.

A clean herbal smell, doesn't cling to the skin, leaves your skin feeling clean & moisturized. I primarily use this to remove my mascara & eye makeup, as a part of my double cleansing routine.

My one complaint is the packaging, the bottle is sold with a screw cap. There is a pump, but it must be purchased separately. With this cleansing oil costing almost $30, I don't want to have to pay additional money. However it's worth it, if you continue to purchase the product. One bottle lasted me a year and change. Already on my second bottle!

I really wanted a cleansing oil that worked well, did not contain mineral oil (so no Shu Uemura sadly), smelled good, and was a decent size and would not break the bank. This product has fit the bill perfectly. I looked into the Boscia one, Shu (mineral oil, ug), a bunch of the drugstore ones (more mineral oil, ug), the L'Occitane one, and settled on trying this one. I would have tried the DHC one, too, but this one is more readily available for purchase at Origins stores whereas you need to order the DHC. I may eventually still order and try the DHC. I was originally just going to try regular oil cleansing and while I heard that it may work for some people well, straight oil contains no surfectants to help you rinse the oil and gunk it removes away. This Origins oil is great. First, buy the pump! Just do it. At least you can reuse with every bottle. I can only imagine the mess and waste that must happen without a pump. I use three pumps every night into palm of hand, dab some oil on forehead, a dab on each eye, and the rest spread around my nose, cheeks, chin area. Smells great and lightly citrusy. Then just massage, massage, massage. This is actually a good time to give yourself a facial massage, and the oil makes it easy. It takes everything off, does not sting eyes at all (after initially rubbing over eyelids, I can open eyes and rub closer to lashline to remove mascara and liner and it does not hurt or give me any sensation at all, just a little blurry due to oil), and rinses away easily. Your skin is left soft and not tight. Hasn't broken me out, and I've been using for more than a month.

I loved this cleansing oil during the first week as it cleansed my face better than any other cleanser I've used (and I have tried A LOT). However I noticed my face started to get lots of tiny bumps everywhere. I thought this was just the purging stage so I continued using it. On the third week I broke out badly. I was getting spots in places where I never have them such as my cheeks and forehead. As soon as I stopped using this the spots stopped but I still had to deal with the ones I already got. This cleansing oil is olive based so I have concluded that olive oil is just not for my skin. I used olive oil itself before trying this oil and clogged by pores even faster. I don't even know why I decided to try it the second time. I'm really disspointed because I've heard so many great things about olive oil. My friend uses just EVOO and she has flawless skin. The only good thing about this cleansing oil is that it removed my eye makeup amazingly, better than my actual eye makeup remover and it didn't sting my eyes.

Luckily I was able to get a refund on the product which I paid £25.50 for including the pump which was silly to have to buy separately since it should come with the bottle.

I am currently using the Shu Uemura Porefinist Anti-Shine Fresh cleansing oil and so far it has not clogged my pores. It's actually unclogging all the pores I got from the Origins oil. The spots from my breakout are also fading slowly. I have not been using my Shu cleansing oil for long so I can't say I love it straight away but it's doing good so far. Maybe I'll write a review in a couple of weeks about it.
