Review: Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash

Hey girls! So, as I told you on Wednesday, Origins was giving out free cleansers and I got in on one of those. I gave in an old/empty bottle of toner for the free cleanser. I got the Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash. They sort of repackaged it for this limited time offer. The cap was made of 100% recycled plastic and the tube itself was 30% recycled plastic. In the picture above, it’s the same size as the normal cleansers because it is full sized. It had 5 oz. of product and it normally retails for $18.50 so that was a great deal. I’ve used it over 4 times since I got it so I can safely write up a review on it. Just to let you know, it’s white in case you were wondering how it looked. Keep reading to know more!

-Washes away makeup without irritating the skin.
-Works on dry and oily skin as well as normal and combination.
-Neutral smell.
-Lathers a lot.
-A little bit goes a long way.
-Doesn’t dry out oily spots and oil up dry spots. It balances out the pH of your skin.

-No cons!

Overall review: I just love this cleanser. It’s just as good as the Clarasonic one I’m currently testing out. It doesn’t make my skin feel tight or anything after washing it and it doesn’t break me out. I personally think that this is perfect for any skin type because my father has combination skin, my mother has normal and so does my sister and it doesn’t bother any of their skin. Also my friend got in on the promotion and she used it and she didn’t have any irritation (she has sensitive and oily skin). The thing that I now like about Origins since I’ve never used this skincare before is that it’s all organic and paraben free. My friend’s mom is a real Origin addict. Whenever she goes to the counter, she has to come out with something and yesterday at the promotion, she purchased 2 night creams. I hope all of you enjoyed and if you want to submit any articles on your reviews on this, feel free to do so!
