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 Rika Best Cleanser EVER
I've been using Clean Energy cleansing oil for about 6 weeks now and I can't say enough great things about it. First, it smells soooo good...like apricots. Second, it gently but effectively removes all traces of makeup including waterproof mascara without burning my eyes or making my vision blurry afterwards. Third, it lasts forever. After 6 weeks and using it once or twice a day, everyday, I've barely made a dent in the bottle. And lastly, it's by far the best cleanser I've ever used. Where has Clean Energy Cleansing Oil been all my life?!?! Seriously, I wish I had known about this years ago. I can honestly say I have not had a single break out, not even hormonal, since using this and my skin has never looked better.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by GoBeautyBeast Unlikey new favorite!
So glad to have taken the leap and tried this product! While combating oil with oil makes sense in chemistry class, I had to admit I wasn't sure how it would translate to my often congested pores.
It really does it all--from nourishing my dry patches, to banishing the slick spots! Makeup is dissolved in one easy step. On top of its effectiveness, it's quite a luxurious experience in itself. The wide-mouth bottle was a bit difficult to handle at first, in terms of portion-control, but it is easy to get used to--very retro and unique.
This is a great gift for all ages and skin types--especially for those who wouldn't usually buy it for themselves. Thanks, Origins!
