Products I Regret Buying #2

I had really high expectations for this product after reading lots of good reviews as well as it is Origins #1 cleanser (according to the SA), however I was very disappointed after my first use and haven’t got myself to even try to use it again after.

Just as soon as I started to rinse the cleanser off, i noticed this film, weird layer on my face. I also noticed that my face was unusually dry. I really felt like it stripped my skin of all its natural oils and dried it out like crazy. It left a very squeaky dry feeling to my skin that felt somewhat like a mask. I’ve never experiences this feeling after cleansing before and I just can’t understand if this is how it is really supposed to be or if it was a total mismatch with my skin.
I really wanted to make this cleanser work because I loved the smell and texture, but unfortunately there is nothing else that is good about it. It might work well for people with very oily skin but for me it was really not a good match!

Do you have any experiences with this cleanser?

    I felt the same way about this cleanser. I had such high hopes and wanted to like it, but it always makes my skin feel so uncomfortable. I just started following your blog and I’ve read so many of your older posts. I love them! :)

      No I’m not sure, but I know for sure it doesn’t go with dry/sensitive skin which I have. If you are interested in trying this I’d ask for a sample before buying, then you’re sure! :)

    Yes I totally agree ! I love massaging it onto my face as it’s so lathery and creamy and smells nice but once rinsed off it leaves my skin so tight ! So yeah thankfully I got it in a set with the origins a perfect world moisturizer which is my fav line from origins especially the serum and cleanser, and was also coming with the modern friction nature’s gentle dermabraison which I really hate as it is so thick and sticky ! Awful !

      I haven’t tried other products from Origins, but I’m definitely interested in trying their moisturizers! :)

    I bought this a while ago and at first I liked it but then it started drying out my skin too.

    The best cleanser I’ve ever used is Elemis Pro Radiance Cream Cleanser. It leaves my skin clean but never stripped from moisture. I love it and have repurchased it a few times so far – something I rarely do! xx

      I’ve been wanting to try the Elemis Pro Radiance Cream Cleanser (I have a thing for cleansers) for a while and after your recommendation I think I have to go and order it! :)

    Really?? I have the opposite reaction to this product. For years, Ive been sneaking and using my sister’s C&B, when I used to live with her. I saw that Origins had a deal so I bought 2. Ive always loved the way it made my skin feel [a little tight, yes]. I always followed up with a Elizabeth Arden moisturizer and I was good to go! I guess you reap what you sow because I went on a trip with a fashion team and I left my C&B in the shower, when I was getting ready to pack up, it was gone :-/

    Jeg fikk en prøve på denne for litt siden, og brukte den et par ganger, og jeg ELSKET den! Huden min er kombinert, litt oljete i T-sonen, og tendenser til tørr hud enkelte partier i kinnene.
    Likte den skikkelig godt, og jeg så faktisk en liten forskjell på huden min på den lille tiden jeg brukte den!
    Kjøpte for noen dager siden A Perfect World moisturizeren, og den er helt fantastisk! I tillegg elsker jeg GinZing øyekremen, har blitt så glad i Origins, og det virker virkelig for min hud :)

      Så bra at du har hatt positiv erfaring med den! Du er ikke den eneste, er mange bloggere og personer på Makeupalley som roser den, sikkert derfor jeg hadde så store forhåpninger. Det ble bare helt krasj for min del, passet ikke hudtypen min i det hele tatt. Men da har jeg nok en gang blitt minnet på hvor viktig det er å velge produkter etter din hudtype og også få prøver før man kjøper en stor tube! :))

    Akkurat den samme erfaringen har jeg med denne rensen. Squeeky clean som er ubehagelig.
    Jeg har en annen rens fra Origins, A Perfect World og jeg liker ikke den heller. Svir skikkelig i øynene.

    Meeen, nattkremen deres Night-a-mins, øyekremen Gin Zing, skrubben Modern Friction og kremen A Perfect World er alle fantastiske produkter. Anbefales!!

    Hvis du er ute etter en ny fantastisk rens, så prøv Eve Lom. Den er helt nydelig. Lukter litt rart, men konsistens og effekt er helt overlegen. Dyyyr, men absolutt verdt det.
    De har den på den søte lille butikken Parfumerie på Majorstuen. Der får du små testere så du slipper bomkjøp. Du burde ta deg en tur dit neste gang du er i Oslo :)

    Enig i at den er uttørkende, jeg har kombinert hud, så jeg tipper det er enda verre for deg med tørr hud! Synd, for den er god til å fjerne sminke.
    Kjempefin blogg du har, og du er utrolig vakker! :)

      Tusen takk Eline! :)
      Ja det er veldig dumt at det er uttørkende, jeg hadde såå høye forhåpninger til den! :/
