Origins Never A Dull Moment Skin-Brightening Face Cleanser - Review
I am one of those people who is forever locked into an eternal search for the perfect face wash. I can't find one. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know! I always find that a face wash is too gentle or too harsh, suds too much, suds too little, doesn't remove enough makeup and/or dirt, smells funny, doesn't help my blemishes, doesn't make my skin feel clean or doesn't exfoliate my skin enough. Sigh. It truly is tiring just thinking about it. Because I love most of Origins products, I thought I would give this a go. I am not crazy about it. Let's just clear this up now.
This product is too gentle. It hardly removes any dirt or makeup. If I run a cotton pad with toner over my face after I have used this, it is insane what is still coming off of my face. It's like I never washed my face at all. This is not a face wash to use before bed or at the end of the day. It does nothing for any blemishes that I may have and it sure doesn't appear to get rid of any dead cells on my face.
This is an ok face wash for first thing in the morning, or if you are hanging around the house all day and just want to give your face a refreshing mild wash. I am not crazy about the smell, it's kind of like rotten citrus. Funnily enough, one of the first ingredients is bitter orange. I just noticed that now! Ha!
This product does not lather well at all. To rub in all over and into the skin you need a face cloth or a facial sponge or something. Your hands are not going to do it. I will not repurchase. This is $23 Canadian and a couple of bucks less U.S. I would imagine. I'm just not feeling this product at all.
