Trapped into buying!! Unethical sellers
I bought this product that i didn’t actually even want today at a Westfield. I was walking past and the salesman lured me in telling me i had to try this sample. He rubbed the product onto my wrist and it was incredible the dead skin that came off and how smooth it was! I told the man i would have a think about it and come back as it is quite pricey ($165), but he did not accept that. He said ‘let me see what i can do!’ and then offered me a discounted price. Again, i said i would have a think about it and come back. He then pressured me furthe...r by saying he would take it down to $120 for me only. Again, i said i would think about it and possibly come back. He insisted that he would be gone very soon so for the discount i need to get it now. He also asked other strange questions including my age (i am only 18!) and if i have a boyfriend. What was really creepy was he then whispered in my ear “do you want a sexy bag for it or a fancy bag”. I felt so uncomfortable and awkwardly laughed and saying the fancy one. I never even agreed on getting the product before he started putting it into the bag. I then felt the only way to get out of this situation was to just buy it so i did. I had been completely manipulated. I went to my car and i just couldn’t leave the shopping centre as i knew what happened was so wrong and i didn’t actually want the product nor could i afford it. I looked up reviews debating whether i should return it and saw the reviews on this website. So many people with such similar experiences! I knew it was so wrong and unethical so i gathered the courage and returned it to him. I feel so much better now. Lesson learnt!
Definitely Not worth the money
The salesman was pushy and there was really no way out! Single mum, 2 kids and he wouldn’t let up! So disappointed at the product too. For the $650 that I spent I should be in love with the product and hanging out to buy again! Im not! He insisted on booking me in for a facial, but I’ve canceled knowing its just a money grab trap. Don’t waste your time with these people!

Love this product
I have been using product for 2 week ever since I purchased at at Riverlink. My skin is nourished and soft, and I haven't had any reaction to it. I am 65 years old and haven't bothered using products for years. Thank you Ken for making me try and and then buy Origani. My Daughter loves you for it as well.

Pushy salespeople poor product
After being basically accosted by your salesman in Riverlink mall I found myself buying this product and now my skin is horrible I have hard balls of product that won’t wash off I have wasted $165 I really couldn’t afford but was so pressured I didn’t feel I could refuse

This product is absolutely amazing!
First of all, the customer service that I got was so personal and made me feel so special! The girl was lovely, for me it’s really important when I want to try something new . I’m using the manuka honey for the last 3 months and I can really see and feel the change! It’s really help for my acne and black heads, my face so smooth . I mix it with my moisturizer but I’m sure I’m gonna try the other products when I finish mine

Very professional chap introducing this unreconstructed Neanderthal to this product. My natural scepticism kept the $’s in my grubby mitts. If something seems too good to be true it usually is; at this price my ambivalence won hands down.
Staff are predatory
The staff are like seagulls. If you throw chips at them, they'll aggressively eat up the chips you gave and try to coerce you into giving them more. If you show signs of being vulnerable, they'll launch at you aggressively and will try to take every single dollar you have.
They'll manipulate and gaslight you into giving your money wherever they can, and will act aggressive if you don't give in.
You know the manuka honey exfoliator that they put on your hand and when you rub the liquid, white little flakes rubs off on your hand? That's not what a real exfoliator or scrub does. With a bit of research, it's actually GLUE, so when they brush it on your hand, it makes flakes come up.
Just like everyone else in these reviews I was basically coerced into buying this mediocre product. This happened 3-4 years ago - I was only reminded of it when I was cleaning out the bathroom drawers - and it's amazing that the same tactic is still being used! My experience was a little creepier however, as I was only 16 at the time and didn't know how to say 'no' to the creepy and extremely pushy sales rep. He rubbed this stupid stuff all over my face for about 20 minutes, making me extremely uncomfortable, and kept saying how beautiful my sk...in was. EUGH! I should have kicked up a fuss then, but I hadn't experienced anything like that and was way too embarrassed to tell anyone. Trust me people, there are much better skincare brands out there that won't cost you an arm and a leg OR violate you in the process of buying!!!
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.

Manipulative if you see in a shopping centre RUN
Horrible manipulation from the sales people, had the same experience as other users, I was dragged into a stall and told to try the product on my hands, then was shown how after using the peel the moisturiser sinks in more, only he didn’t think I noticed on the hand with product on he put a dab of moisturiser and on the other he put quadruple the amount? When I pointed it out to him I was told ‘no no darling it just soaks in that much better using our Manuka honey scrub!’ Then when I kept refusing he kept lowering And lowering the price. Blatan...tly using dishonest tactics to push the sale by using different amounts of product and lying about it. Do not deal with this people they are dishonest and obviously not selling a high end product if they can halve the price and then some when you refuse.
I feel like I have a baby skin
The product is really good, it makes my skin soft and clean. It is good to remove all dead cells and make the skin breath again. A weekly exfoliating is something everyone should do, and this product certainly makes the skin looks great.
Manipulative, pushy, rude sales assistant not adhering to COVID-19 safety laws. A violating experience.
I was accosted by a pushy and manipulative sales assistant outside the store on Little Collins Street in Melbourne today. The woman lured me in with over the top compliments on how good my skin was, and insisted I needed to preserve it. She sat me down and started using this product on my hand, which removed the top layer of skin. She didn't ask, but she just grabbed and started doing this. It was a gross violation of my boundaries and my body. Her spiel continued for ages and she kept pushing a $300 kit on me, offering more and more freebies i...ncluding free facials in store and soaps and extra products. She didn't care that I didn't want to buy anything and kept falsely lowering the price, saying it was below cost (I find this hard to believe). When I encountered her in the street she was friendly and I simply thought she was going to offer me a sample in the store but she just went on and on and it was almost impossible to leave or get a word in. She had no respect for my boundaries and did not adhere to covid rules. Her mask was down under her nose and she kept grabbing my arm and hand and sat way too close. As she figured out she wasn't going to get a sale from me she became visibly angry and rude. Very manipulative behaviour all round. I am very well educated in psychopathy and abuse and she was employing psychopathic techniques in order to try to make a sale. I was not impressed and I felt grubby and violated from the experience. I even considered going to local police afterwards to report their behaviour which I consider extortionate and very risky during covid. Currently considering other avenues to report this brand and stop them from behaving like this with decent and unsuspecting customers.
This company if it is a company!!!!!!!
Firstly the staff at the Westfield in Geelong grabbed my arm & made me go into there shop & test out products after telling him I wouldn’t buy them & I couldn’t afford them.
He said that’s okay it’s $200 and I could give me a discount of $100 I said no I can’t he said hang on I have a ripped box I’ll give it to you for $89 I said no I have to go he grabbed my wrist and said no no test it out the moisturiser isn’t absorbing into your skin. I told him I use high end products I’m not interested he then ask...
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.
Something new and rewarding
I am so impressed about the Manuka Honey Peel! It is mind blowing how you can see the results Clearly. I am definitely getting some and using! Give it a try

Questions & Answers
is it okay if i use tap water and not lukewarm water instead?
Hi Belz, thanks for asking. You can use tap water, but warm water is better for your skin after using the peel. We hope this helps. Kindest regards, Origani.
Is it safe to use when its already expired?
