Clean!

I've always had trouble with sensitive skin. Most products tend to dry out my skin, leaving it feeling really tight. Therefore, I'm hesitant to try something new. But I gave in and tried Origins' Checks and Balances - and I loved it! My skin felt so clean...like it removed every bit of makeup. However, it didn't give me that dry/tight feeling. My skin just felt clean and fresh.

Really love this!

This is great for day to day cleansing, but you will need something with a bit more heft for deep cleaning. The scent is light and refreshing. My face feels clean, but not squeaky after using it. Really lives up to its name!

awesome frothy wash
Purchased

The soap really lathers well and your skin feels extremely clean. I would highly recommend this face wash. No smell as well, which is nice. Good value.

Best cleanser ever~

My husband and I have used several of the Checks and Balances, and still are using it everyday. We both have combination-oily skin, so we need super powerful cleanser. But most of the face washes we used before were either not powerful enough, or making our faces too dry. This one is a saver. Not dramatically changing your skin or anything. But definitely will improve your skin quality as you use it. A must-get for oily skin!

So excited to see my old favorite face wash here since my Origins store at the local mall closed several years ago. I keep it in the shower to use daily. I have sensitive skin- the only discomfort is it will dry my face if not rinsed right away. All good things: foamy, smells good. Only need a little tiny dot at the time to do entire face, so the product goes a long way. I enjoy it.

Fantastic

One of my favourite things about origins and their products is how clean AND fresh I feel after using them. This is a great product for getting your face super clean without drying out your skin. I think it's been one of my go-tos... I feel comfortable with washing my whole face (not even shy about applying it to my eye area) and just feeling the product work. Very worth it!

Dried out my skin
Purchased

This was an alright product. It really dried out my skin so I had to follow with lots of moisturizer. My skin did feel clean right after use though!

Nothing Special

This cleanser was ok. I really didn't notice the difference from a drugstore product except for the funky smell. Would not buy again.

Lucious, Lathery, and Long Lasting!

I have been buying this product for years, and I only need to buy it once a year-maybe even less! Seriously, a half of a pea size amount will lather up your entire face and neck. At first I found myself using too much, and so I decided to figure out how little I needed to have a healthy lather, and a tiny dot will do it with this product--hence its long life. This is the only face wash that I will go back to buy time and time again, and know that it is well worth the price!
