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:

It cleanses my skin and it does seem balanced afterward. My skin doesn't feel stripped or tight after washing with this product. I'm not blown away by it though. A little goes along way.

    Nice cleanser but leaves a weird feeling

    By Skin

    from None

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash:

    I've been using this face cleanser morning and night for about a week now and I have mixed feelings about it. When I first used it I HATED it because when you rinse it off it leaves that stripped feeling like you used a plain bar of soap. Like when you run your fingers over your face they get stuck... I still decided to give it a try though and I think I'm glad I did. I feel like it is clearing my face so far and has no cause any dryness despite the feeling it leaves my face. Also a little goes a longggg way so this will last a very long time. I love the scent it is relaxing, I almost wish it was a little more scented. I'll continue to use unless it breaks me out.

      This is the only face wash I've used that works for my dry, sensitive skin. It really gets your skin clean and unclogs your pores without drying out your skin. I accidentally left mine at a hotel when I was on a trip and I had to run to Ulta and buy another bottle. You could tell a huge difference when I stopped using it for a few days.

      One of the best cleansers for sensitive and acne prone skin

      By Clara

      from Lakeville, PA

      Comments about Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash:

      I've been using this cleanser on and off for about 3 years now, and I always come back to it. Having a combination of sensitive and ance prone skin it is difficult to find a good cleanser that works for both. This is a gentle cleanser that doesn't irritate my sensitive eczema prone skin, but still makes my skin feel clean.

      No oily spots in sight.

      By Ena Flor

      from Los Angeles, CA

      Comments about Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash:

      I have tried it twice since buying it. After the initial rinse I notice that my skin is a little tight (nothing too bad) I did right away make note that this product did not dry up my skin as other face wash do & instantly could tell that my face does not look as oily (or at all). It leaves your face smooth after everything settles and it just has a normal glow to it. Oh & btw you really do need the smallest amount. First time I used to much and could tell right away I had over done it.

        Comments about Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash:

        I had been in the market for a new non exfoliating cleanser and finally decided to give this a try and I do not regret my decision. I decided to purchase this product because I've always heard positive comments about the Origins brand. The face wash doesn't have a strong smell which is perfect and a little goes a long way! I"m always the person who 'over uses' product, but with this one there is no need. A small bit will just keep lathering in your fingers as you wash your face.The best part: I don't get oily during the day anymore so I no longer suffer from occasional break outs. This product is a win-win in my book!

        This is now my every day cleanser. I had a really really bad break out and this is the only product that has cleared my face and made it really smooth. I use it in the morning and night. I'm loving the results!
