Rated 2 out of 5Â by jamaow Love it, but disappointed
I am a new user of Origins. While I really love the oil for shaving, I kept saying to myself everytime I used it, that the packaging of the product is wrong. I was told to use a few drops by the salesperson, but could not figure out how to do that with way the bottle is designed. Only after reading the comments by others that I found out that there used to be a dropper. Origins, please either bring back the dropper or change the design of the bottle so that we can use the product the way it is intended. If not, I can not see spending my money on a product that appears is being made in a way allows the consumer to waste the product in dispensing it, just in an effort for the company to make more money in repeat business.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by TXJustin Bad Bottle for product
I'm quite conflicted on this review. The product itself is great . I put this on in the shower and let it "do its thing" while I soap and rinse by body. Then out of the shower I apply my shaving cream on top and get a really nice close shave. The shave is comfortable and it leaves my skin soft and smelling nice.
Here's the conflict -- the bottle that this comes in is not at all appropriate for this product. As the title indicates, this is a thin oil. Trying to get a few drops onto your finger tips becomes a chore. Tilt too much and it pours out way more than you'd like which spills out between your fingers. Tilt too little and it dribbles down the side of the bottle. This product screams for a pump bottle. The fun continues when you get to screw the cap back on -- with oily hands. Since you tilted it too little earlier and oil ran down the side, where you set it down leaves an oil ring.
A fantastic product that is difficult and frustrating to apply isn't much better than a poor product, so I'm forced to give this two stars. Other companies make similar products that are in a pump bottle, why not Origins? If Origins can put this into a nice pump bottle like other products, that's an instant five stars.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Originsuser1974 Disappointed with a great product
I started using this product a couple of years ago. Last year, Origins changed the packaging and removed the dropper insert. I recently threw out my dropper insert by accident with a completed bottle. I called National Customer Service and was told the product design no longer includes the dropper insert. How does one dispense 5 drops into their palm?
I am no longer going to purchase this product or the after shave. Sorry Origins...

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Timbo Bottle Design Takes Away From Product
I have been using Origins products for years and decided to give this a shot after noticing several ingrown hairs on my face. I can't say the product has eliminated them completely, but I think it definitely reduces the amount of ingrown hair on my face after shaving.
The HUGE issue that everyone is complaining about and I found after using it the first time was the design of the bottle. There is absolutely no way to pour "just a few drops" out. Every time I pour some out I get a handful and it drips down the side of the bottle, covering the bottle in oil. Origins needs to seriously consider re-designing this bottle because that initial factor leaves a bad taste in my mouth before I even put the oil on my face.
