Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash

Item #: 2307120 Size: 5.0 oz

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.

Squeeze small amount into palm, add tepid water to lather. Swirl over skin, steering clear of eyes. Rinse thoroughly. Great for A.M. and P.M. cleansing.

    Comments about Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash:

    I have been searching for a cleanser since I moved to Florida, the climate is different than the Northeast where I was from and I felt acne plagued me constantly. I received the cleaner as a gift sample from another retailer, I fell in love with how clean it made my face feel and also I saw a dramatic difference in the texture as well. I use my Clarisonic morning and night and now I am a user for life, hopefully my face doesn't get used to it and have to change.

      Great Cleanser for oily skin !!!

      By E Lily

      from Connecticut

      Comments about Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash:

      I use this Cleanser with my Clarasonic everyday in the evenings and it cleared up my acne. My skin is at its all time best. It leaves a clean fresh feeling and has reduced my oily T zone. I was using twice a day but my skin became dry. I had mild adult acne but it has since cleared up doing this evening regime. Hands down recommended.

      In love with Origins!

      By Kelsey

      Comments about Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash:

      I absolutely love Checks and Balances. I have combination skin, which changes from more oily in the warmer months to dry in the colder months, and this makes my face feel amazing! It has taken me a long time to find some thing that worked for me. Something that isn't harsh - causing irritation and redness, some thing that doesn't over dry my skin or leave an oily/filmy/waxy residue. I have no complaints about this product. I also use it with other Origin products.

          Love this cleanser. It cleanses my skin without over drying. It's very gentle, and removes makeup. It has a light minty smell that doesn't linger. Would def buy again.

            Comments about Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash:

            First of all, I am SO excited that Ulta has started selling Origins products! They are amazing. This cleanser has become a permanent step in my skin care routine. I have combination skin (although it's definitely on the drier side) and my skin has never felt so balanced. Along with a moisturizer, this cleanser does not leave me with any dry patches and it also balances my oily zones throughout the day. After you wash your face, it will leave with that super squeaky clean feeling. I mainly tried out this product due to my acne, and I didn't think it would really help, but it has helped far more than any other cleanser specifically designed for skin with acne!! My face looks a lot nicer and my acne has substantially went away. Also, this product smells so good, sort of a green tea type scent. I don't leave a whole lot of reviews, but this item simply deserved one.

              Been using this for several years now and won't try anything else. Love how it cleans my face of all traces of makeup. Face is not dry or tight after rinsing. A keeper!

                Comments about Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash:

                My combination skin has only given me problems over the years. It's a combination of excessively oily and Sahara desert dry. I can't use moisturizer because my face will be dripping oil within an hour and I can't leave it without moisture because it will flake and be patchy. Oil free products, moisturizing face washes, face masks and peels, none have done what this product can do. It perfectly balances what my skin needs and lacks, leaving it feeling clean, healthy, moisturized in all the right areas but not greasy in all the other areas. I use it twice a day and pair it with Mario Badescu's rose water mist. A little goes a long way so despite it being pricier than what I normally spend on face washes, it's worth it because it lasts just as long, if not longer. I've also found that it's a great oil controller. Gone are the days that I'm having to blot my oily patches with tissues every couple of hours. This stuff is absolutely incredible.
