Most Helpful Positive Review Checks & Balances Frothy Face Wash
I began using Checks & Balances Frothy Face Wash I guess when it first came on the market! It is a wonderful product that cleanes off all make up and leaves my face feeling soft and thoroughly cleaned. A few months ago I failed to reorder this product when I ran out of it, so I bought a national brand cleanser from the drug store. It was awful! I quickly ordered a years supply of Checks & Balances Frothy face wash and will not go with out it! When I first began using this product I had very oily skin. And it was great at leaving my skin feeling very clean, not tight. Now that I'm in my 50's, and have combination dry skin, this fantastic product is still a great cleanser for my skin! I even use it in the morning before reapplying my skin toning and moistirizer products. I highly recommend this product to anyone who needs a good over all cleanser. I also have delicate skin, around the eye area This product has never irritated my eyes! Also, a tiny bit goes a long ways! Just a pearl size dab thoroughly cleanses my skin. A tube will last a very long while!
Most Helpful Critical Review I'm in the minority but... DRYING!
I've been perpetually perplexed at how others rave on this face wash. I've tried it now a handful of times, each time far from the previous, wondering if the prior were just anomalies. But sure enough every use feels like I'm stripping my skin of all moisture and leaves it in a horribly dry, uncomfortable manner. My skin is combination - tends to be more dry in the winter and more oily in the summer - and I'll get occasional mild acne breakouts more often in the summer (sunscreen is the death of me).
I use A Perfect World cleanser twice a day and have been for years now. Checks and Balances is just not for everyone!

I'm completely new to skincare despite being 50 yrs old. I started with a best sellers gift set and I'm hooked. Checks and Balances face wash was the first product I was absolutely sure I was going to buy in the full size. I love it. I have combination skin that is sensitive and this leaves my face neither oily nor dry. Its in perfect balance and rinses clean.
Anni from Boston, MA
Love love this face wash face feel clean and fresh. No irratation just fresh looking face after wash. Glides on your face nicely and rinse off easily. Had some free samples went back to buy the big bottle
I will buy this after receiving a free sample
Lizt from AB
Wonderful refreshing facial wash, my face feels clean and not tight
I hate the entire line
HeathMarie from Winston Salem
I bought this thinking it would be more natural, but the essential oils added destroyed my face. Every single product is LOADED with pore clogging fragrance/essential oils. It's not natural. Prime example of greenwashing!!!! My skin had acne ALL over. HORRIBLE!!!!!
The search is over
TrapBunnyBubbles from Anywhere Town, USA
I finally found the face wash of my dreams! I got a free sample and was hooked. I purchased the largest tube and it has lasted four months and I'm about half way through it. I use it with my Michael Todd sonic face brush, and it's absolutely perfect. I have combination skin and this doesn't overdry my skin or leave an oily feeling behind. I also love the Estée Lauder pomegranate face wash but for the money this is the better deal. Will purchase again and again!
Janetep from Sycamore Commons, Charlotte, NC
This is a great face wash. It is very frothy but also very mild. My face feels clean but not dry. Very easy to use.
Okay but not for over 60 skin.

Won't buy again.
Dried my skin out
Loveandlight from Delaware
I purchased several products to try after using the regimen finder. This was in a set I bought with the checks and balances cleanser, modern friction exfoliant, and ginzing creams. They dried out my skin HORRIBLY and when I used this separately, I knew it was definitely not an appropriate cleanser for me. I am really happy I bought the full size dr weil's redness tonic lotion because I needed it after that! I awoke to red bumps all over my face. So I have spent the last month trying a few different combinations of origins products and I am so disappointed. I would not recommend. Especially if one is looking to balance their skin.
Audrey C. from Columbus, OH
Love this face wash! I'm an avid Origins user and this face froth is the BEST!! It doesn't leave my face feeling dried out or greasy. I love the smell and makes me feel like my face is super fresh and clean.
I love this product
Gab from Southlake, Dalllas texas
I use it before and works great for me
Literally the best
Kei from Newark, NJ
This stuff is GREAT. One bottle will last you so long because you only need a pea size amount which creates a perfect lather. Origins products are amazing and I will be using this face wash forever!

csilta from Marquette, MI 49855
Use twice daily, morning & night.Prior to using, I had issues with other cleansers stripping my skin, leaving my face dry and tight. Origins Checks & Balances Frothy Face Wash foams up nicely, cleans off my foundation, eye makeup without using more than a pea size drop.
This was the BEES KNEES Totally would buy again 1000
Rae from Texas
I use it when I shower or when I wake up in the morning for a nice fresh face wash. My skin feels so good after.
Mehan from Kentucky
I was struggling with pore clogging before I started using this cleanser, my skin had so much texture from stress, to "maskne" it was awful. My skin is finally back to its old self, and I am so happy. I credit this cleanser as a huge reason why!
One of my favorite facewashes
LisaRN from Oldsmar, FL
Use almost everyday, love how it feels on my skin and leaves my face feeling refreshed and not over drying.
Angel777 from FL
I have been using this product for years and love it. Nothing else cleanses your gave like this one and foams like this. Excellent product.
Good, but be cautious...
Sophie Lily from Portland, OR
I love this face wash. Clears my skin, a little bit goes a long way, smells great. However, be careful getting it on or near your eyes. It burns, and I'm talking like, BURNS. I genuinely thought I used a towel with bleach on it the first time it got in my eyes. If you wear eye makeup you'll have to find another alternative wash to take it off. Other than that... great product!
A pea size of this goes a long way!
Bubbles21 from Austin, TX
The first time I used this product I squeezed the bottle like it was tooth paste, and then realized that just a little bit goes a long way! Which is great because it is a bit pricey but at least you know it's going to last you a while. Plus, it leaves my skin feeling super clean and fresh. I definitely recommend this product as an everyday cleanser.
Love love love
Blondiecakes from Los Angeles
I hate to knock another product BUT I've been using Clarins for years & I had to replace it monthly, which gets pricey. I wanted to try this Origins face wash & just a little bit goes a long way! It froths & cleans my face without breaking it out & I won't have to replace it as much as the other. Origins for the win.
I won't ever use another cleanser again
Carple01 from Fort Wayne, IN
I have been using this cleanser since I was 14 years old (which was 10 years ago) and have never found a single cleanser I've loved more than this one. This one is PERFECT for combo/sensitive skin, it clears acne over night, it's gentle but not TOO gentle and it does not dry out my face like crazy. This will be my staple cleanser for decades to come!!!
Awesome! A tearless formula would make it even better...
Ultimatebigsis from Waterloo, IN
Checks and balances is a good name for this cleanser. It really has helped keep a "check and balance" on my oily, acne prone skin. It is creamy and is incredibly frothy. My only request would be a tearless formula that is not so irritating to the eyes, since it is so frothy it has a tendency to go everywhere including in the eyes if they are open. It is a bit of a pain to always have to wash your face with your eyes closed. Other than that though, I really like it. You don't need to use much, a little bit goes a long way and it is really effective at making your skin feel clean and refreshed without being too drying. It is my favorite cleanser!
Perfectly Clean Face
HuffPuffMum from Massachusetts
I've been using this cleanser for YEARS. My tween daughter AND my husband also use it now. It is such a good, consistent cleanser. I can use it all year and not get dried out in the winter but feel clean in the summer without feeling stripped. I use it with an exfoliating cloth when I need to exfoliate so I don't even need to purchase a separate exfoliating cleanser.
Lexi from Pittsburgh
I love this face wash... I use it nightly! It smells so good, and makes me skin feel soft and refreshed.
Absolute favorite everyday facial wash
2 cents Sam from Chicago, IL
I use this product in the morning and before going to bed. It smells fantastic and really lathers up so a little goes a long way. My face always feels clean afterwards and doesn't leave it feeling dry or irritated by the fragrance. This has become my new go-to face wash!
Does its job - super drying
Chrissssss from Maine
I like the way this facewash smells! It does froth up really well, but it is very dry/stripping for my already dry skin. As soon as my face is dry I need to run for my moisturizer, that's how drying it is for me. I bought this to use 1-2/week when I need to alternate from my Mario Badescu oil/cream cleanser. I was hoping this might balance me out since the MB cleanser is leaving my pores clogged and appearing larger.
