Ask a Question
When it comes to faces with dry and oily places, it takes a clever cleanser to balance the two. This gentle, frothy face wash carefully does both jobs without canceling each other out. Broad leaf kelp extract discourages excess oil production, while wheat protein balances and protects dry prone zones.

Tourmaline actually makes water wetter to more easily disperse dirt and sebum down the drain. There's also aromatic bergamot, spearmint and lavender to add pleasure to the process. Skin feels comfortably refreshed after cleansing, never tight, pulled or parched.

    Comments about Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash:

    I've struggled with acne since I was a teenager. I have combination skin and with any other face wash I've tried have either been left with right dry skin, or oily. Checks and Balances is the perfect face wash. My honestly feels balanced, clean and refreshed each time I use it, and for all seasons- I live in Chicago where my skin can feel more dry in the winter months. I can also say that my acne had cleared up so well. I follow with Origins Night-A-Mins cream. A+++++

      I really like cheeks and balances! It is the only origins product I've ever used and I am on my third one! I have sensitive skin and this is so cooling- plus it takes off my makeup. I use it everyday and have had zero problems.

        I have combination skin that is acne prone with common break outs on my chin and forehead. This product makes my face feel so soft and clean and it has been really helping with keeping my breakouts to a minimal! I use this product with my Vanity Planet facial brush and a little amount of product goes a long way! This product is higher in cost, but worth every penny spent!

              This is my holy grail face wash. I have used several different ones, but I keep coming back to this one. It controls the oil in my t-zone and moisturizes the rest of my face. I have very sensitive skin to scents in products, but this one is gentle enough to clear my skin.

              Comments about Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash:

              I consider myself to have pretty outstanding skin. I've never had any serious acne and my overall moisture is good. However, my skin gets super stressed at work and I get dry cheeks and patches around my jaw bone and I wanted something deep cleansing that would balance that out. It helped with that, but made my T zone very oily which is something I've never had an issue with until now. But the value is still good as less than a pea size covers my whole face.

                I love this product, a little goes a long way! A little bit of the product creates so much foam, and has a cool sensation when product is massaged on the face in a circular motion. it leaves my skin clean, soft.

                    This is slightly drying but better than a product from a different company that I tried first. I'm new to Origins. I don't know if I'll buy this again but I'll finish what I have which will probably take 4-6 months.

                      Comments about Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash:

                      I got a sample of this face wash a couple of Christmas ago and loved the product. I went through it very quickly so I didn't repurchase due to the more expensive price. Recently, I decided to splurge and buy a bunch of Origins products. To give you some background, I myself have many food and outdoor related allergies. Gluten is one of them. I noticed this face wash made my face very red and irritated. It took me a few months to figure out that it was because this facewash contained wheat proteins. I have switched the Checks and Balances wash out for the Modern Friction wash which does not have wheat as an ingredient. I have noticed that my skin has calmed down.
