Origins Checks And Balances™ Frothy Face Wash

Product information

Find your balance.

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. Konjac powder seeks out oil, soaks it up then keeps it well in-check, while wheat protein balances and protects dry prone zones. And broadleaf kelp breaks down dirt, disperses excess oil and sends dullness 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.

Checks and Balances™ is best for combination/normal skin.

How to use: 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.

frothy face wash this is a great face wash it leaves your face fell so smooth and clean I have used others origins is by far the best thank you h barr 20 May 2014
Vast Improvement Having used this for 3 weeks now, I can see a big change in my skin. My pores are clearer and I've had hardly any blemishes compared to before. It's also really nice to use, froths up well and doesn't feel harsh on my skin. 08 April 2014
Best face wash I'm a guy and I use this face wash every morning on my combination skin. Works brilliantly, smells great and a tube lasts for ages. Couldn't be without this. 22 March 2014
TERRIBLE! in the beginning I saw an improvement on my skin but after a couple of weeks it seemed to do nothing, it only increased the amount of oil on my skin, which caused a high amount of breakout on my forehead. i do not recommend this product at all! 13 August 2013
Excellent Face Cleanser I only recently tried this as a sample from a John Lewis Origins counter and then I loved it so much that I bought one! It really foams up well and you only need a little so it lasts for a long time. It really feels like it is taking the daily grime off your face when used. 29 September 2012
My favorite cleanser! I was given this as a gift and I was a bit unsure if this cleanser will suit my skin because my skin is prone to dryness even though it is combination. I tried it, and now I'm a convert! It's minty and frothy like a shaving cream, but after you rinse off, there is no tightness! I really love the frothy texture, there' are no other cleansers like this! 15 September 2012
This will last you a long time !! A little goes a long way with this product, You can use a tiny amount with a dash of water and it instantly creates a frothy face wash ! , this will last a long time if used carefully. One down side is the smell, it has a bit of a boring smell to it, this may be because Origins are quite a natural company. I have used this for 2 weeks and am happy so far :) 11 February 2012
Super face wash I was advised to get this face wash a few years by an Origins sales lady. At first was a bit dubious but I am a convert now and cannot recommend it enough. It doesn't dry and it really does feel like it cleans. It smells fresh and not heavily scented, but again doesn't that the smell of something that is 'fragrance free', which I don't particularly like. I found that it lasts forever too, so even though it is more expensive, it represents good value for money. Only a small amount is needed to get a good lather for the whole face. It removes make up too. Buying it on JL is great as they will price match too, so I've snapped it when they do that! 28 January 2012
