Disappointed
Sampled

After trying this product sample about three times I am still not sure what it's purpose is. My face doesn't feel any different after using than it did before using it. It feels very smooth going on but it doesn't seem to accomplish anything. This product isn't for me :(

Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash
Sampled

I enjoyed the foaming texture of this wash; however, it did not leave my face feeling satisfyingly clean. If it is available for different face types I would consider giving it another chance.

Ivory Soap Tinged w/ Spearmint ...
Sampled

I had to check the ingredient list to confirm that it was indeed spearmint that I was smelling! This face wash is just ivory soap cloaked by a hint of spearmint. Checks and balances? No way. It is very drying without even a smidge of moisture for those drier areas. I was pretty disappointed with the quality. The lather wasn't even all that. Frothy huh? Meh.

Burned my face
SampledPurchased

After using 3 times, my face was red and raw. Had to discontinue. Not good for sensitive skin. Froth ed nicely, nice packaging, a lot of product for a sample but not right for me.

Overpriced and ineffective
Sampled

The texture feels nice, initially. Lathers easily and a lot. But that's actually quite drying to the skin, so not a positive point.

It hardly removed any makeup not matter how long I let it sit or rubbed. There was always makeup like mascara and eyeliner smeared all over my eye area. Had to use another cleanser afterward each time. My face was left feeling a bit squeaky dry (if that makes sense). Not a pleasant feeling.

This seems like a very cheap product marketed as a higher end brand. Save your money and buy a cleanser from the drug store for the same quality.

Dry!
Sampled

This one was not my favorite. I really liked the way it foamed up and how soft it was on when applied to my face in the shower BUT when I washed it off, my face was instantly very dry. This may be a good one for someone with very oily skin.. maybe in the summer time. Not for me.

Didn't like the way my skin felt after use
Sampled

First of all, a little bit goes a long way with this product! My first use i used way too much and was washing it off for forever. I didn't like the way it left my face and hands feeling after I used it and I ended up washing my face again with a different face wash. It almost felt like there was a film on my face that left it too squeaky and clean - I think I just need something with a bit more moisturizer for my skin type.

High Hopes But...
Sampled

I had high hopes for this cleanser, and packed it in my case to use exclusively during a business trip. After 10 hours on the road, I wanted nothing more than to wash off my makeup and go to bed. Unfortunately this cleanser barely removed my makeup, but it was frothy. I had to use another brand of cleanser to finish the job, which thankfully, I had packed. It's nice for mild face washing, but not removing makeup.

It's ok

I've purchased this before because I really like most things from Origins. However, this was just alright. It smells clean, but I never felt like I got much from it as a cleanser. My skin would still feel a little tight after washing with this and patting dry. I'm kind of disappointed in this product.
