Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash 5 oz (148 ml)

Cleverly cleanses faces with dry and oily places.

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.  And 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.

Best for combination skin.

 

Cleansing combination skin can be tricky, as the variations in oil production can complicate the process of choosing a facial cleanser. Formulas capable of eliminating excess oil from the forehead, nose and chin often dry out the rest of the complexion, while hydrating cleansers that can moisturize dry patches may leave the T-zone feeling greasy. Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash is formulated to suit the unique conditions of combination skin, so your complexion is left perfectly balanced.

With regular use, Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash can help minimize the variations in oil content that are common with combination skin. Broad leaf kelp extract targets the T-zone, while the wheat protein in the cleanser helps maintain moisture levels in the skin. Tourmaline crystal fragments also make this facial cleanser unique. For centuries, this rare gemstone from Sri Lanka has been used in beauty rituals and natural healing traditions, and modern science has uncovered that the gems offer the benefits of ion generation. Warm water stimulates the production of the negatively charged ions, which have been shown to provide detoxifying and brightening benefits for the skin.

Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash is gentle enough to be used twice daily by people with combination skin. The cleanser is the perfect first step for any daily skin care regimen for combination complexions, and it can ready the skin for the benefits of other products.

First off I never tried anything from this line. But now that I have I deff will try more. This is such a good face wash. It makes your face feel so clean. Its a thick cream. It lathers very well. Its not runny even when your washing your face. It smells EXACTLY like toothpaste. I had two huge zits that were inflamed bc I was picking at them and this deflamed them. Amazing bc they were bad. This would deff be a good product for a teen bc its mild and evens out oily spots and dry spots.

I was really expecting this face wash to help my combination skin by removing the oil. But after using it for several weeks, I see no difference at all. It is a fine cleaner, very gentle and not irritating but for [$], I expect it to work better than its competitors that are significantly cheaper. Will not be buying again.

      Comments about Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash, 5 oz:

      This face wash smells nice, but it didn't really work that well for me. It seemed to dry out my skin, and left a strange soapy residue - it was tough to rinse completely off. Not worth the money when compared with other face wash products. I won't be buying this again.

        I used this years ago and loved it. As I've aged, I felt I needed something for slightly drier skin. I happened to be in an Origins store and bought the small travel size and gave it to my 21 year old son. He loved it, so I got the full size. It's really a good over-all cleanser.

          Comments about Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash, 5 oz:

          I alternate between using Checks and Balances, Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins Mega-Bright Skin illuminating cleanser and Origins face scrub -- but Checks and Balances is definitely my cleansing staple. I use it twice a day and usually with my Clarisonic in the mornings so I can really exfoliate and get into my pores. I night I'll also use my fingertips and it always creates a deep, thick lather and leaves my skin super clean and smelling great.

          You only need a little bit so the bottle usually lasts at least a month. I've found it works on any skin tone and several of my friend's who have borrowed it are now daily devotees, too!

                This product has a brief menthol -y smell, which is actually very nice. I love the way my face feels afterwards. I am 56 years old, and I still have problems with my skin, and so far these past two weeks, I see only improvement in appearance.

                  I discovered Origins back in high school.. Now, I have a daughter in high school and have re-discovered these beautiful skin care products! She and I can rarely use the same products. But this wash is so lovely and universal, we are both enjoying it tremendously! It's minty and soft and frothy. Skin is clean and soft, never tight and dry or greasy or waxy. Love it!
