Origins Zero Oil Cleanser and Toner

I've had quite a bad time with my skin recently so have been on the lookout for new products to help clear it up.  Origins is a brand that I've read great things about from other bloggers, and in fact one of my all-time favourite skincare products is their Spot Remover which is just amazing, so I was keen to try out some of their products.  After browsing their website I came across the fairly new Zero Oil range which is tailored for oily and blemish prone skin and sounded perfect.  I opted to try the Deep Pore Cleanser and the Pore Purifying Toner, and I also got a couple of freebie samples but I haven't tried any of them out yet.

The Deep Pore Cleanser contains Saw Palmetto and Mint so has a lovely fresh scent.  I use the cleanser over the sink in the morning and in the shower in the evening (I'm not a morning shower person - prefer to get as much time in bed as possible!).  I normally dampen my hands, squeeze on a 1p sized blob and rub together to form a lather then smooth over my face (avoiding the eyes), working in with a circular motion for about 30 seconds before rubbing off gently with a muslin cloth.  It leaves my skin feeling so soft and fresh, and not at all tight (which I sometimes get with with foaming cleansers).

The Pore Purifying Cleanser also contains Saw Palmetto and Mint so again it's very refreshing.  I normally pour a small amount on a cotton page and sweep this over my face (again avoiding the eye area - mint in the eye would be a bit nippy!) after cleansing.  I find it soaks into my skin pretty quickly leaving it lovely and soft, and my pores look much less visible.

I've been really impressed with the Zero Oil range so far - I've been using the cleanser and toner for a few weeks now and definitely feel like the oiliness has reduced a lot.  Have you tried any of the products from this range, or are there any other blemish-prone skin treatments you'd recommend I try?
