FREE Deluxe Clear Improvements Mask w/any $45 Origins purchase
When it comes to faces with dry and oily places, it takes a clever cleanser to balance the two. This gentle, frothy face wash carefully does both jobs without canceling each other out. Broad leaf kelp extract discourages excess oil production, while wheat protein balances and protects dry prone zones.

Tourmaline actually makes water wetter to more easily disperse dirt and sebum down the drain. There's also aromatic bergamot, spearmint and lavender to add pleasure to the process. Skin feels comfortably refreshed after cleansing, never tight, pulled or parched.

Squeeze small amount into palm, add tepid water to lather. Swirl over skin, steering clear of eyes. Rinse thoroughly. Great for A.M. and P.M. cleansing.

              At first I just bought the travel size but ended up buying the full size because I love it. It smells minty and leaves my face feeling fresh. I've always had issues with acne but I have seen an improvement in my skin since using this product. It may seem pricey but a little goes a LONG way. I use the tiniest amount and it lathers and cleans my whole face. I feel like it really does what it says, it keeps my oily areas in check without overdrying my skin.

                I have been using this product for several years. When I have on light makeup I use it with only my hande and rinse with splashes of warm water. With heavier makeup I us my rotary skin brush and this really removes everything. It smells great and leave my skin soft and smooth.

                    I bought this stuff on Black Friday and finished the bottle today. I always try to finish a bottle of something to really give it a try and see how it worked long term. I won't be buying this again. Check out the ingredients listing above. The second ingredient is lavender, and I LOVE lavender...but it doesn't belong on your face. Spearmint oil? That is the thing that creates the "smaller pores" and "tighter skin" feel. If you have sensitive skin like I do, then you have to stay away from any mint in a product for the face. I am able to tolerate it on my body, but not my face. My dermatologist has told me to stay away from the mint in skin care. But did I listen? No. I wanted a good deal, got one, and then tortured my poor face and neck.
                    And this did noting for my combination skin except to strip it of the natural oils it already has. I meant it, I was SQUEAKY CLEAN after using this...and you never want your face to feel like a freshly cleaned dinner plate. You want softness. I didn't get softness from this product. I used the tube and will never purchase again.
                    For those of you who love this product, good for you. Maybe it is an older skin thing (I'm almost 50)? Not sure. But if you have sensitive skin, beware.
