Ive been using Origins Pure Cream facial cleanser for about four years now and have no complaints. My skin tends to get very dry in the winter, but even in the summer months I have to moisturize. This delightful stuff really helps me in the moisturizing process.

Carrot oil, coconut oil and glycerine are the main ingredients in Pure Cream, so if youve guessed that it is heavier and, well, creamier than most other cleansers, youd be right. It takes a little getting used to, but after a few uses, if you have dry skin, youll be thanking Origins for creating such a product.
The instructions say that you can tissue off Pure Cream, so technically, no water is needed to rinse your pretty face. I prefer to use this cleanser in the shower, so I do use water to rinse, I feel that with a wet face, I am able to spread the cleanser more evenly. There is also a caution for using in the eye area, and it can sting a bit if gotten into the eyes, use with care.
The oils in Pure Cream are great for removing eye make-up and my face always feels refreshed and clean afterwards. I used to use a facial soap by Clinique and found that after cleansing, my face would feel tight, almost irritated. Pure Cream has, so far, not irritated my sensitive skin and it always feels as though I have already moisturized after cleansing.
The fragrance is fresh and natural, not too overbearing, although it does have more of a perfume scent than a soap scent. In fact, the product claim is that it is soap-free.
Pure Cream comes in two different sizes, a 6.7 fl. Ounce glass jar, that I actually think looks really cool ($16.50), but also a 3.4 fl. Ounce tube ($10), which I use for traveling. One jar usually lasts me at least three months, however it lasts even longer now that I have the tube to supplement.
Because the texture/feel of Pure Cream is, admittedly, a little different than other cleansers you may be used to, I would recommend getting a sample from Origins to try out first. Sometimes they have promotional kits where you can get a small tube with a combination of other products.
All in all, I would highly recommend this product; it is well worth the price paid if you have dry skin, regardless of whether you are male or female. An old roommate of mine used to help himself to it regularly. He finally stopped when I took an old, empty jar and filled it with sour cream (to give you an idea, the sour cream, although it had a very different odor, actually looks quite like Pure Cream). So dont steal mine, get your own today!
