Rated 5 out of 5Â by crh31 HOLY AMAZINGNESS!
This stuff....is marvelous. I have had problems with acne for as long as I can remember..I've tried sooo many different products to try to get it under control, and some things would work fairly decent but there was nothing I was wowed with.
I am wowed with this! At first I was a little skeptical about putting oil on my already oily acne prone sensitive skin, but I'm glad I tried it! I rub it all over my face before I get into the shower(it doesn't burn the eyes, but I would recommend using something else if you want to remove ALL of your eye makeup..I use baby shampoo which works great) and then add a little water so it turns into a milky liquid, then rinse it off. My skin is SO soft after I use it! And just a day after using it, I could tell a difference in my skin..it ACTUALLY started clearing up!! OMGGGG!! It also seems to help with redness. I've been using it for a few weeks now, and if it continues to work as well as it has these first few weeks, I will never go back to a normal cleanser! I am now working my way through all of Origins products, and every one that I've tried has not let me down.
**tip: BUY the pump at the Origins store for this! It's super cheap and it makes getting the product out of the bottle super quick and with no mess.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by mrsOrtega Fantastic for my Combo Skin!!
Just the thought of oil can be scary for those of us girls who have combo/oily skin...brings up an inner warning signal to steer clear. But I had it all wrong!! Oil isn't bad for our skin...(well there are some..like baby oil or mineral oil) there are actually oils that are good for our skin and can even mimic the natural moisture found in our skin, and thankfully after much research I stumbled upon this cleansing oil and it is FANTASTIC!
FYI to my fellow combo/oily chicks, over-washing or washing with cleansers that strip our skin actually makes us more oily because our skin is overcompensating!! How I did not figure this out earlier is beyond me but I am happy to say I've finally found my saving grace.
Basically I pump a little of the oil onto my fingertips and dot onto my face. I massage it all over with light pressure then rinse with lukewarm water. The smell is fresh and citrusy, very nice! After cleansing I'm left with smooth clean skin that never feels tight or dry. And makeup comes off super easy, even my darkest kohl liner and mascara...I LOVE it(just be careful not to get in your eye, it can sting a little)! Dare I say I don't even have to use a toner afterward!!
After just a week of using this my skin was much smoother, clearer, and it glowed(and not the icky oily glow). Now 3 months later I've only nearly used half of the same bottle and my skin is the best it's ever been, and not one stitch of sensitivity or any adverse reactions, I'm ecstatic!! Thanks Origins :)
**Be sure to ask for the pump, it makes it easy to dispense and much more sanitary

Rated 5 out of 5Â by TexaninGA Favorite cleansing product ever
First, this is the first time I have ever publicly reviewed a skin care product. I have combination to oily skin & was so surprised at how much I love this cleansing oil! Using it each night is like a mini spa experience! I am 45 years old & have always been faithful about taking good care of my skin. I have used so many different types of cleansers to remove makeup over the years. I find this does as good or better of a job at removing makeup as anything I've used before. But, what really sets this apart is how great my skin feels after I use it! It feels clean, but not dried out. Moisturized, but not oily. It's like it feels the way skin is supposed to feel! I use it by putting a 3-4 pumps in my dry hands & massage into my face (dry). I then use a warm washcloth to lay over my entire face for a minute or so & then used the wash cloth to wipe away all the makeup. GREAT! Loved it so much I bought it for a friend as a birthday gift.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by galw Simply the best.
I have combination skin, and am especially prone to blackheads in the t-zone, as well as random breakouts. I have been a loyal customer of Origins for over 10 years and have used just about every face wash they have come up with (Checks & Balances, A Perfect World, Ginzing, Make A Differenceâ¦). While I have loved various aspects of those cleansers, I have never seen results as positive as from the Clean Energy cleansing oil. Seriously, this cleanser doesn't feel harsh and doesn't leave me feeling the uncomfortable tightening/drying sensation that washes like Checks & Balances can produce.
This cleanser is really amazing - it feels gentle yet powerful on the skin, and I have NEVER experienced results that leave my face feeling more lusciously soft and beautifully even, while nearly eradicating black heads on my nose. Additionally, I have not experienced one breakout since starting to use this product (three weeks ago), and it has even started to fade old scars from previous acne.
This is AMAZING stuff and I totally recommend it to anyone and everyone!!!
