Origins Checks And Balances™ Frothy Face Wash

Special offer


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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this product A face wash that does just what it says. Easy to use - good lather and leaves the face feeling fresh and clean. The travel size is brilliant for holiday use. 23 June 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Disappointing I love frothy face washes but this one was disappointing. It's quite a thick creamy fake froth, it's quite heavy and I didn't like the feel of my skin after using it. I'm afraid I will not be purchasing this again. Sorry Origins 28 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 1 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
