I received this product from Origins through Influenster and wanted to try it out for a month to test out the results before I gave a review on it. I love that they sent me a full size because it gave me more than enough product to give it a genuine test out to know whether or not I’d want this in my regimen for long term. Initially, I was hesitant to use this product because exfoliants are not recommended to use daily on sensitive skin like mine and I’ve had terrible experience with scrub cleansers before. Yeah, I freaking LOVE this stuff! Need I say more? Seriously, this is the best cleansing product that I’ve used in so long! By that, I mean a clarifying/exfoliating cleanser, not cleansing oil. My favorite oil is still the AmorePacific – Treatment (Cleansing Oil). It’s recommended to use twice daily (AM and PM) which made me raise my brow a bit hoping that this isn’t some sandpaper exfoliating cleanser like I was used to. But after using it on my face the 1st time (I’m an avid ‘test product on inner forearm first’ kind of person), I won’t be using another day cleanser! This has such a luxurious lather and the beads dissolve (yay, for the environment!) as I massaged the product on my face and isn’t harsh at all. It left my skin so soft and smooth without any redness from the exfoliation. OMG!! I’m in love! Can we talk about the scent for a moment?! Seriously, Origins? How are you going to be all calm and collective after releasing a product that works so well and smells like THIS?! This cleanser actually makes me excited to wash my face, even if I’m tired or groggy, I remember I have this amazing cleanser that’ll pick me right up and I’m immediately in a better mood and excited to start the day. Cliché, but true. It has such a rich, fresh, citrus scent that reminds me when I drove by a bunch of lemon and orange orchards on a road trip. The company suggests using AM and PM, but that I can’t agree with. Nighttime is not an ideal time to use this because he invigorating scents will affect your nervous system counteracting your intention to relax and fall asleep. This product is seriously so amazing and I can’t imagine my skincare routine without it. I have only tried this on my (dry, sensitive) skin, but from other reviews I’ve read, this works for many complexions.
