essential oils = oil free?
I have very fair skin, oily/combination, and I've suffered from mild to moderate acne for 11 years. I've been using this cleanser for a few months now, and I love the way it makes my skin feel, but I am still breaking out badly (especially around mouth/chin area). In the past, I've always stuck with "oil-free" products, but I know Origins uses essential oils in their products...do essential oils somehow not clog pores? Or could my skin be reacting to the "oily-ness" of essential oils?

Try dropping dairy from your diet. I had the same issue...all related to what is happening on the inside. Dropped dairy out of my diet and my skin is clear...for the first time in 24 years.

I would use their oil and acne control line. The spot treatment Origins makes is fabulous and really works!!! Hope it works for you as well! :)

This product will not make you break out. Essential oils are not the same as say mineral oil which is terrible for your skin. Try washing your make up brushes once a week with baby shampoo and laying them flat to dry. Also change your pillow cases twice a week. Use a Clarisonic brush to cleanse your skin and use an oil free moisterizer. You should also stop using liquid foundation and switch to Bare minerals powder instead (it works as a foundation and a powder and won't clog your pores. Also get a glycolic peel once a month.
