Ok product but horrific company
The product itself is nice to use but I’m not convinced it does what the sellers tell you it does, but also NOT worth the $160 price tag or the absolute bullying you receive to purchase it. I’ve read other reviews from different locations and they have all been identical to my experience. I was lured to try a tester and me being too kind to say no I said ok I’ll take a tester, and the lady dragged me to a seat and made me sit for her to put products on me. I had both of my small children with me in a pram who were obviously upset and wanting me...to keep walking but she kept pressuring me to stay. She ended up testing this product on my hand and I was moderately impressed but told her I couldn’t afford it. That’s when she offered me a free facial, and I told her no I can’t I have to take my kids home. She walked over to her boss and whispered soemrhing to him and then comes back to me and she literally takes her phone asked for my NUMBER and says she will text me so I have a way to contact her and book in for a free facial when I’m kid free. I foolishly believed her and gave into her pressuring and bought the stupid product hoping to at least get a nice facial out of it. Sure enough I text her the next day to book in a time and no reply. I walk past her at the stall every time I’m in Westfield geelong and feel sick to my stomach that I wasted the last of my money on something she conned me into buying. Seriously people don’t buy from this brand!!!

This product made my skin worse
I'm from the Philippines and this product from Australia or owned by an Israeli made my skin worse. I was walking in the mall with my friend and suddenly a lady appeared to my side in front of their shop holding a small teaspoon or whatever you call it with a product on it and started applying something on my skin. My friend told me to ignore, but ignored my friend instead of the sales woman. So we found ourselves sitting on their lobby while the sales woman who approached me continuously applying the thing onto my hand and showed me how the fi...rst layer of dead skin cells were removed. She applied it to my friend as well, who gave me disgusting looks. So this material is so damn expensive yet I bought it because they promised to change and improve my skin. I'm suffering for pimple breakouts for several years now. Having sensitive skin, I only use Cetaphil as my partner soap. And Micellar toner. Nothing more. My face didn't have pimples for the longest time and I was happy about it since I was able to control it, until this Manuka thing came to my life. It's disgusting how they keep lowering the price from ₱6,000 plus to ₱4,000 just for me to get it. The sales woman told me "Sir, this is the first time I'm doing this but I'm going to give this for you at a lower price. Not only that, you can have you free facial today as well. I'm also giving this voucher to you for next month so that you can avail the free facial. Sir, this is the first time I'm doing this and I'll only do it for you since my boss is not here". "Wow!" I uttered inside my head. "What a nice woman she is". Of course, because I'm stupid and gullible. Then, her assistant was like "imagine that sir". It feels like I owe her something for giving that magical voucher to me. She even showed me pictures of some of her clients. The before and after pics that represents how changed they are right now. So, next I found myself in front of their cashier and swiping my debit card. It actually failed twice then I told her to try it again bypassing the PIN. Woah! It worked. I was charged. How the heck didn't I listen to my guardian angel who was trying to save me at that very moment? I found myself next lying on their bed and one of their therapist working on my free facial. She was kind and nice though but I hate the fact that she didn't wear some gloves and keep touching my face with her bare hands. She even mentioned she ate nuts before that. I wonder if she washed her hands though? So unpro. Not sure if I'm gonna user their soap made from the Dead Sea.

Really is amazing
Gosh this stuff is amazing. I wish I could afford to maintain using it. Have used up 2 bottles in the last 3+ years.. and will buy again once finances allow. I had a pushy sales rep, but I just told them let the product sell itself mate, and it sure did.

Fabulous product, good for sensitive skin.
I've used this product for a few years now. My skin looks and feels great, including the rosacea areas. I'm in my early 50s. The sales tactics referred to in other reviews are true and unfortunate. I buy online now.
My experience with Origani has been terrible, I purchased the products mentioning to the rep I have very sensitive skin. He ensure me that the products are natural and will be perfect for my skin. I started using the cleanser, night cream and the face peel, instantly my skin broke out in massive blind pimples almost like zits, my skin was so sore to touch it hurt even showering with my face under the water. I stopped using the product after 3 week. I was told me skin my break out and then it will clear up hense why I carried on using the produc...t. I contacted Origani and heard nothing mentioning I would like a refund, 5 weeks after stopping the routine my skin was still so tender and red. I contacted organi again as I went to a beautician to analyse my skin, my skin was burnt from the products, I contacted organi again mentioning I would like to return the products and have my money refunded and how terrified I am of the products. I got an email back saying sorry and to come in store for a free facial, I thanked you for the facial and declined as I do not wish to use any of their products on my face. 6 months later origani have not made any contact or resolved this matter. You are more than happy to take someones money but you are not happy to resolve or refund when the product is not suited for someone. I have now paid another $2800 to get my skin back to how it was before using your products.

Psychopathic sales person
I feel compelled to write a review despite quite some time has passed, as I see how others have had the same unpleasant sales technique experience. So it’s obviously still happening which means the company is either not managing this or approves of it.
I actually bought two products at the time, the peel being one of them, at the Hobart mall. I must say I felt mentally battered after the experience. Even after buying two products the sales person wouldn’t let me go, nearly physically obstructing me from leaving. He talked fast and just wouldn’...t stop. I noticed similar comments from others as I looked up the company’s website with the intention of buying another peel. Today I found my jar at the back of the cupboard and it still had a bit left over. So I used it and despite several years gone by, it still worked wonderfully. But finding the jar immediate reminded me how awful I felt at the time and quite some time after! I actually had to become angry to get away from this man, not that this put him off... The product itself is great. Product 5 star, experience -5.
Pushy sales tactics - waste of time
I was completely turned off buying any of the products due to the pushy and invasive nature of the salesman in Melbourne Central store.
He must have wasted 20minutes of my time despite me repeatedly saying I would have to think about it before purchasing. Also disappointed that he tried for all this time to sell me the Manuka Honey Face Peel for $165 and at the very last second dropped the price to $99 which I later found out was the price on their official website! So glad I didn’t fall for his awful sales tactics having seen the far reduced ...

Today Steve showed me what this product can do, even for a geriatric nomad almost 68 y/o. I was very impressed by it. I use a moisturiser as I’m always in the outdoors on my solo travels around Australia. Steve reinforced that it should only be used once weekly. However, as I travel around between pension days I do need to enforce a strict budget and plan ahead for things like this so I wasn’t in a position to purchase right now.
Hi, I want to support [name removed] comments and endorse everything she has written in her review. I was unlucky enough to come across the same saleswoman at Bergamo airport, with the same sales pitch and bizarre approach. I felt totally belittled, patronised and taken for a ride. Shame really as I could have quite liked the product. For sure I will never fall for this trick again!

love this product was really surprise
won this in a competition, was really surprise how well it worked, great results, not a big honey user, but great results was very surprise, i have very sensitive skin
"No chemical used, completely all natural" Erm...
Pls teach your sales people not to say that. Its REALLY unintelligent and complete untrue. Its a "peel". I believe the correct cosmetic term is "chemical peel". Even everyday shampoo, toothpaste etc have chemicals in them. Chemical isn't all bad, depends on how you use it. My inner arm actually feels a bit irritated( tingles) after demo but I was too shy to say anything. Also, all the products are a bit pricey and sales people is somewhat pushy.
The product itself is ok, standard peel cleanser. Haven't used it long enough to notice long term results yet.
I was made to feel uncomfortable by the sales guy at the Auckland store though. Every couple of seconds I had something complimented. Combined with the physical closeness of demonstrating the product including touching legs, I felt like I was at a bar. He then gave me his number and offered a free facial treatment which he would personally do. I would have liked a free facial but obviously wasn't going to take him up on that and now I walk on the opposite side of the street to avoid the store.
I get that sales teams are meant to make the customer feel good but tone it down please?

I'm not really happy
I was shopping at the Melbourne Central Shopping Centre and there was this guy who just stopped me and asked me what products i use for my skin. I told him and he was like let me show you some stuff. He didn't really give me a chance to back off. He showed me two products that could really help me with my skin and make me feel better and this and that.. and in the end i bought them and i though alright that's it thank you. So i was packing my stuff and he was like nah sit down i want to show you more things. So then he showed me more products a...nd said: "without these products i'm showing you right now you're not gonna make your skin look better." I was questioning that because i already bought 2 things which he told me would help my skin condition improve. He kept talking and talking and to be honest he was wasting my time. He also said he will give me products for free because he really wants that i use those products so my skin gets better. He also said that he is the manager of the store which i didn't really believe. I ended up buying all the products because he made everything way more cheaper then it was (or he pretended it was) and also gave me some stuff for free. He also gave me his number in case i have questions. now. i think all of it was a scam. I'm Swiss and he was like: "ah all Swiss People are rich haha" which is not true! He also said that his skin used to look bad but not as bad as mine is and that hurt me a little? And i feel like he was trying to scare me with those pictures he showed me from people with pimples and scares and disgusting pores and stuff and he was like this is what's gonna happen if you don't use those products. also after reading all reviews i have to say that i really regret that i bought this stuff. i could go on but this is getting too long. let's see how i feel after i use them.

Worth a try!
Purchased this Manuka Honey Peel over a month ago and has been using it since, between 1-2x a week. I can definitely see a change in my complexion and has made my skin smoother. My skin is also very sensitive but it didn’t react to this one due to its organic ingredients. I haven’t had any breakouts either which is very unusual when using something new.
I love this product and I believe that it’s really worth a try. Will definitely go back to get and try their other products.

The first and second time after using the Erda Manuka Honey peel probably felt the most different. My skin was instantly smoother, and was able to absorb my moisturizer easier. Now, this is the fourth week (once a week) that I have tried using the peel. My skin has been consistently feeling smooth, and is slowly feeling even smoother. I have sensitive skin, so I am glad that so far I have not experience any issues with it. In the past, I have used other brand of exfoliating gel of a similar price. It was nice, but not as gentle as this Manuka h...oney peel. So I am happy with the product. King was the sells introduced me the product, and it was at the Brisbane city Myer store. Also,… I did ask how long this bottle will last, and the sales told me it should last around 2 years. So I hope it does last that long, because to be honest, I still think the price is a bit too high.

Questions & Answers
Is it safe to use when its already expired?
Just used my open bottle again (expiring on 2021) after a couple of months & surprised that after 10 seconds, no dead cells came off like before when I rinsed it off with warm water. I also saw my skin tightened in the horizontal direction that I applied the gel. Was I supposed to massage it first before dead cells come off?? Am guessing that I bought it late 2018 or mid 2019? Is the tightening the effect of expired product?
