Origins Zero Oil cleanser

origins zero oil cleanser deep pore review photo
Origins Zero Oil cleanser: OriginsDebenhams (£16)*

Origins Zero Oil cleanser is a deep pore cleanser with saw palmetto and mint. The cleanser claims to reduce excess oil production, soothe and calm troubled skin and unclog pores. The smell is fresh and invigorating which I love using, especially in the morning as it makes my skin feel much more awake and fresh. Origins skincare isn't packed with nasty chemicals either so the products are very natural, plus they aren't tested on animals either. This face wash also contains salicylic acid, which is great for reducing pore size and helping reduce blackheads

Since using this cleanser twice a day my skin has improved alot. My face feels very clean and bright after using it without feeling tight or stripped. I haven't had any break outs since adding this to my skincare routine. I was skeptical about the oil control properties of the Origins Zero Oil Cleanser, However I really do think it has helped keep my oily skin at bay. I have combination skin which is oilier towards the t-zone and dryer towards the outside of my face. It doesn't always get super oily, but I think its alot less than it was.The Zero Oil cleanser foams up really nicely as you add water and washes off with ease. I love the minty-ness of the wash as it's cooling and tingles slightly on application which feels very nice.
Skincare Disclaimer: I personally think skincare is incredibly subjective, I'd never run out and buy something on the recommendation of one person. What works for me, might not work for you. Remember to always look up other reviews and make sure you reference the reviewers skin type. My skin is Oily-Combination, I don't tend to get breakouts but when I do they are on my chin. Also cutting out dairy from my diet has also improved my skin of late.


  1. I like origins as a brand and have been looking for a new cleanser, hope it would work just as well for me too xoxo

  3. I've had my eye on this cleanser for so long! Might have to cave and get it after payday! xx

  4. I use the Origins Checks & Balances cleanser and really enjoy it - this one might be a good call for me too :)

  5. I love Origins, the products always smell so lovely :)

  6. I love most face wash product with mint. I really need something for my blackheads on my nose, I might give this a go. I'm very curious about Origins brand.

  7. ooh I really want to try this. it sounds lovely xxx

  8. This product sounds really good, not sure it would work for my dry skin though xx

  9. I have combination skin too so I think this would be great for me. Definitely going to have to try this out!! xo

  10. I used this product but I can't say I loved it. The smell was really good but apart from that I couldn't see anything else.

  11. After seeing Kate from ghostparties rave about this and reading your good review, I think it's time I tried it! I have acne-prone skin and am sick of using harsh, stripping products so this looks really good.
