Most Helpful Positive Review Fabulous Face Wash!
I have written a review for this face wash about 1 month ago but, I wanted to update my review. I have been using this face wash for about 4-5 months now and it has made a huge impact on my complexion. I am a 39 year old woman with a history of acne. I have had acne since I was in my early teens and have had adult acne for most of my adult life. The only thing that has cleared up my skin in the past was prescribed medications (both oral and topical). As I get older, I want to put less harmful remedies in my body and on my skin so the more natural, the better for me. The A Perfect World White Tea cleanser has cleared my skin and has kept it clear. I can not say enough good things about this wash. It is a savior for me! My acne has completely cleared. The cleanser has also been helping with reducing my redness and acne scars. I highly recommend this cleanser if you have acne prone skin. It is light, smells nice, and well worth the price! A little goes a long way.
I also use for Origins products (that do not irritate my skin or make me break out)- A Perfect World 25 spf white tea moisturizer, Night-A-Mins oil-free moisturizer (for night), A Perfect World eye cream, and A Perfect World Anti-aging lotion (the toner), and the charcoal mask. For Makup: The Skin Tone Correcting Brighter By Nature Makeup and the Smarty Pants Skin Correcting CC Cream. You can see that I love Origins products and that is all I put on my face!
Most Helpful Critical Review Not for nomal or dry sensitive skin!!!!!
This product completely through my skin off, it is very harsh. It works wonderfully and maybe as well as dermatologist prescribed products to get rid of blemishes and clogged pores, that's how serious this stuff is. But unlike dermatologist prescribed products, it will kill your skins natural barrier. After using this for a couple of weeks I was left with dry patches on my cheeks, literally like someone swiped red lipstick on my cheek. If you are looking for something gently, this doesn't even come close.

This is my favorite cleanser because it doesn't leave a film on my face. I only need a small amount and it lathers well. Smells great and leaves my face clean and feeling refreshed.

This is exactly what I've been looking for in a cleanser. Love this product!
Antioxidant Cleanser with White Tea
HappyLady from Washington DC
I have never know that my skin sensitive before I try this cleanser. It irritates my face every time when I use it. I am not new one with Origins. I have many products and always satisfied. Now I should treat my skin with medicine because the allergy huge. Can't wait the time when I will have option to return it.
Works well for my sensitive skin
Kelly O from Boise, ID
I love this face wash. It's cleansing and effective. It has not caused me any breakouts and it smells great. I have also used Origins Checks and Balances face wash and find it similar. Both work great for sensitive skin.
Emily from Simi Valley
This is such a great cleanser for getting the top layer of funk off your face, it removes remaining makeup, dead skin, and it helps to get rid of some of the oil on your face. A little drying, but works well if you put a good moisturizer on after. It's just a really good cleanser and makes your skin feel cleaner afterwards.
The only cleanser I'll ever buy
Annie from New Hampshire
I am a huge fan of this cleanser. I have sensitive skin, and as I enter my 40's have both some dryness/wrinkles and occasional acne, I have been using this cleanser for the last 4 years and love it. I use it as part of my nighttime routine, I do not use makeup remover first, I don't have any issues with makeup left behind or stinging my eyes. A pea size amount does the job and my face feels great, I am very sensitive to scent and I love the smell of this, the white tea is lovely. I do agree that the quality/design of the tube is not that great, and I have had more caps break off then with any other product I've ever used, but even with that annoyance, I still keep buying it! Occasionally Origins will offer a larger size, and those are a GREAT value!
Gentle on the skin
Lala from San Francisco, CA
I needed a cleanser that was gentle on the skin and didn't try to target too many things (fights acne, hydrated face) because I use retinol, so it had to be a simple face wash. This did the trick! My skin loves it and it smells great!
My #1 face wash
B from New Orleans
Best face wash I've ever tried. You only need the tiniest bit so it lasts forever. I have sensitive skin too so I'm very picky with skincare.
My ONLY facial wash
Suzan from Southampton Pennsylvania
I have used this product for 15-20 years. It is the only wash I use on my face. I have very sensitive skin. My last purchase of this product was an 8.5 oz size, white tube. I am praying this product has not changed since I must reorder now. Wish the larger size was still available but I figured that was a special order. With my skin problems I am especially leery of changes in any product. Ps I also use Make a Difference Plus rejuvenating TREATMENT on my face. On my fixed income these items are precious to me so I can not purchase frivolously.
This is my go to product
SarahT11 from Wallingford,CT
I honestly love this cleanser it's easy on my skin but gets the job done. The amount you really only need to use is a pea or almond size amount because it lathers really well with just a splash of water. If you have oily skin or just need a day to day cleanser this is the one!
Smells good but poor quality
KZ from Minnesota
I have been a huge fan of origins products since I first tried them last year. I bought this cleanser since I loved how is smelled and thought the antioxidants would be helpful. Unfortunately, the product has caused a lot of stinging and burning of my eyes and the cap broke off soon after used it. I've loved all my other origins products but am disappointed in the quality of this facial cleanser as well as the quality of the bottle.

Day 2 using this face cleanser, and I absolutely love this product!! I was a bit skeptical in trying this one out and glad I decided to try it, you can feel the difference before and after the cleanse!! Smooth and makes your skin feeling fresh!!!!
Do not buy this product
kaitlin11 from New York, NY
I have been an avid Origins customer for over a year now and have loved every single product of theirs until this one. I have normal skin, no acne, not much sensitivity, no major issues - the associate in the store recommended this cleanser as the antioxidants are supposed to help prevent aging. Never have I ever had such a poor experience with a skincare product. This cleanser striped my face raw, left red dry patches all over my face, and dried out my skin like I've never seen before. The first red flag of this product should have been after my first use how badly it stung my eyes and blinded me from minor impact. I am honestly taken aback because my experience with Origins products has been so positive until this one. Do not use this product unless you are ready to essentially burn off a layer of your skin. I am so disappointed.
This is the dreamiest!
KB from NC
I seriously love this cleanser. It's gets my skin so clean without drying me out. The smell is heavenly, I feel like I'm on a little vacation while washing my face. I will definitely purchase this again and again and again.

Gentle and effective cleanser

Great Everyday Cleanser
SarahR3487 from Cleveland, Ohio
I recently decided to try this cleanser and I have been super impressed with it! It smells really fresh and calming, deep cleans my face, and doesn't leave my skin feeling stripped or tight. I wear a lot of makeup, so I always go in with some type of make up remover or cleansing balm first and then wash my face with this. I feel like this helps my complexion stay bright and I haven't had any breakouts since I started using this. I would definetly re-purchase!!
Sensitive Skin for the WIN!
JanisK from North Jersey
My husband and I went to the Origins store in NYC and got free mini facials for the heck of it, but we were actually pretty blown away by the products! The manager used this on me and I immediately loved the scent. Besides the scent, my face felt really nice and I didn't have that immediate drying/tightening feeling I usually do after I dry my face. So, I decided to purchase it:)
It's been about a month since I started using it (2x/day with lukewarm water) and my husband says he sees a difference: less acne, my skin looks more even, and my face overall looks better. It feels better, too! It doesn't feel stripped nor like something is left over. Just clean. I use it with the mega-mushroom toner, white tea eye cream, and Ginzing moisturizing gel (THE BEST).
BOTTOM LINE: Definitely check this out and give it a try if you're looking for something on the more natural side (no crazy preservatives or dyes). I really think you'll fall in love with this like I did!
This is the best cleanser ever!
Kara from Baltimore
I adore this cleanser. The subtle white tea fragrance is soothing and calming, perfect for my nighttime skin routine. I like how it foams just a little when you add warm water. I do a dry application technique to get it over all of my face and then massage it in with warm water on my hands afterward and it does a great job of cleansing. It cleanses without drying my combination skin or irritating my sensitive skin. Perfect.
Great for sensitive skin
Jaime from Maryland
I used Checks and Balances for months and loved it! But then it's like my skin switched up one day and was so sensitive and the C&B made it dry and tight. After talking to an associate via chat and in store I was twice recommended to try this cleanser instead. I love it! It's foamy yet super gentle and smells great! A little goes a long way which I love because it ends up being less product waste. I've been using this with the SPF from the same collection and I'm loving it so far. (Been about 3 weeks).
Haleyann from Knoxville, TN
I love this product. It makes my face feel clean and soft . It's my go to face wash from working a 12 hour shift to staying out all night it gets the job done . Very gentle and doesn't break me out. And you only need a pea size amount to do the job so it lasts a long time. I don't wear make up often but when I do and use this it takes off , all my face make up and 90% of my eye make up comes off 10/10 recommend I'm buying my second bottle
Please bring back the travel size!!
TripleA from NY
This is the best cleanser I've ever used and I was very disappointed to see that the travel size has been discontinued... please bring it back - the small size is so convenient for travel!!
Maya from MN
I loved this cleanser and how gentle, yet effective it was. I really pay attention to what ingredients are in my skin care and Origins wins hands down. After washing my face, my skin feels soft and never stripped. This cleanser doesn't control oil so I would recommend the Frothy Foam Wash by Origins for that. This cleanser does deep clean my pores and I honestly have had less breakouts than I ever have before.
Overall Pretty Good
Ash from Jacksonville, FL
I have very acne prone skin and had previously used the Zero Oil and Checks and Balances years ago since acne was my main concern. I hated both and couldn't figure out why (I was young and dumb at the time). Little did I know I have very sensitive skin that actually dries out really easily which was making my skin awful after using those other cleansers. So now years later I've come back to origins to try out this product. It really is gentle and foams up great so you don't have to use much. It didn't break me out at all and my skin felt clean but not stripped like a lot of acne products did. I didn't notice my skin getting and clearer from breakouts which is why I gave it 4 stars but it does what it says and isn't irritating at all. I'm almost finished with my first bottle and decided to try the brightening cleanser this time around to see if it would give my skin the extra boost it needs. Overall a good product though, would recommend to those with sensitive skin and combo/ dry skin.
