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.

        My face dries completely out in the winter and I struggled finding a facial cleanser that cleans but doesn't dry out my skin. This is my favorite hands down. My face is clean, I still have lots of moisture after I'm done, it feels nice when you wash with it, and a little goes a long way!

        I received this face wash as a sample. once I ran out I had to go and buy the full-size version. It is completely worth the money and leaves your face feeling completely fresh and clean!! a little bit goes a long way.

          this cleanser helped clear one of the biggest breakouts I've had in a while. I recommend it to all of my friends and the ones that have tried it have fallen in love as well. I have a combo skin type and it works perfect for my skin because it keeps everything balanced. It also has a peppermint scent which I love!

            Comments about Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash:

            I use this 2x a week. If I use it more I get very dry around the eyes and tip of my nose. It's one of the best cleansers I've ever used in 10+ years of acne. My face is actually cleared up. If you have dry skin, I highly recommend you use this with a moisture mask. I use the Origins over night moisture mask the days I cleanse with this product.

                Comments about Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash:

                I began to use this face wash in the winter when my skin was breaking out from being dry. It does work to moisturize dry areas and control oily areas. I use it with a spin brush and that has dramatically gotten rid of little bumps and any acne. I will repurchase this.
