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. Broad Leaf Kelp Extract discourages excess oil production, while Wheat Protein balances and protects dry prone zones. And Tourmaline actually makes water wetter to more easily disperse dirt and sebum 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.
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. Checks & Balances™ is best for combination skin.

Go-To Face WashI have always had combination skin, but am quite prone to breakouts. Because of this, I've also tried medicated face washes, but received Checks and Balances in a travel size as a free sample. During a traveling stint, I used this as my only face wash and was blown away by the results. My skin was left feeling great and I have actually had significantly less breakouts than face washes designed for acne control. It has the right amount of drying to help my oily skin, but not too much to lead to overt dryness. My skin has improved drastically with this, using it every morning and night. I will continue to use this for years to come.

Skin SaviorNormally I don't write reviews for things, but this time I felt like I needed to. I've always struggled with my skin being extremely dry on my cheeks and super oily on my nose and chin. I've tried a bunch of products (my bathroom closet has an entire shelf of products that have failed to help) and the one I most recently tried was this because I received it for a gift. I absolutely love it. I've been using this and the Night-A-Mins moisturizer every single night and my skin has improved so much. I used to have really bad dry patches and gross oily patches, but now my skin is way more even. My acne and blemishes have even faded a lot with this and the Problem Skin mask.

I'm in the minority but... DRYING!I've been perpetually perplexed at how others rave on this face wash. I've tried it now a handful of times, each time far from the previous, wondering if the prior were just anomalies. But sure enough every use feels like I'm stripping my skin of all moisture and leaves it in a horribly dry, uncomfortable manner. My skin is combination - tends to be more dry in the winter and more oily in the summer - and I'll get occasional mild acne breakouts more often in the summer (sunscreen is the death of me). I use A Perfect World cleanser twice a day and have been for years now. Checks and Balances is just not for everyone!

Harsh on skin, not worth priceI used the face wash per the instructions: letting it get frothy in my hands before applying it onto my face + eventually rinsing off. I found that this face wash really made face feel super clean; however, I quickly realized the product was too harsh on my skin, and my natural oils were being completely stripped away. I have combination/oily skin, and using harsh products makes my skin even more oily. And that happened in this case, too. For this price point, I'd much rather use my money on the face wash I currently use, which I think is generally softer + gentler on my face. I received this product free from Influenster; however, all opinions are my own.

Uff da! from
FINALLY FOUND "IT"I have struggled with oily/acne prone skin since the 7th grade. As a result, I have spent years trying every product under the sun. Nothing ever worked. They would either make my skin super dry or super oily. Nothing ever worked in between...until Checks and Balances. Within the first couple of days I could see a drastic difference! Now my skin feels refreshed, my acne is nearly gone and my tone is improving! I highly encourage anyone that struggles with oily/acne prone skin to give this product a try. I don't think you'll be disappointed :)

Feels like an expensive soapI bought this product hoping for a very gentle face wash that wouldn't dry out my already dry skin this winter and eagerly waited for this product for over two weeks before it arrived, only to be extremely disappointed. This product feels, smells, and works exactly like a foaming hand soap, except it's about 5 times more expensive. After using this face wash, my skin feels extremely tight (akin to how my hands feel after washing them with a soap that dries them out) and the redness/texture in my t-zone have only become more irritated and pronounced. I've always been a fan of Origins's natural products, but this one did not live up to the hype.

LOVE!I have combination skin with daily breakouts and have found that this cleanser has made a HUGE improvement when I use it twice daily along with other Origins products. It isn't drying at all and I LOVE the light refreshing scent. It tingles a little bit which I love. It does say in the description it doesn't make your face "squeaky" but it definitely does...but I don't mind at all. I like the 100% cleaned feeling. I follow with Origins Spot treatment and one of their moisturizers. HIGHLY recommend if you struggle with adult acne.
