Review | Origins Checks And Balances Frothy Face Wash

What They Say | "When it comes to faces with dry and oily places, it takes a clever cleanser to balance the two. This Origins gentle, frothy face wash carefully does both jobs without cancelling each other out. It helps to seek out oil, soaks it up then keeps it well in-check, while it balances and protects dry prone zones. And Broadleaf Kelp breaks down dirt, disperses excess oil and sends dullness down the drain. Skin feels comfortably refreshed after cleansing, never tight, pulled or parched".
What I Say | This is a sample size product I received with a previous order and I'm so pleased I did. It's a 30ml tube, which is very generous for a sample. I have used it everyday since I received it and I still have over half left.
It's a milky white consistency which smells very fresh and minty. I wet my face and squeeze a small amount onto my fingers. You only need about a 5p coin size and it will cover your whole face. I gently begin to massage it into my skin and wow, it feels amazing. It's so soft and lathers really nicely. I have never used a face wash like it. When I have finished massaging it in, I rinse it off with warm water and I'm left with squeaky clean skin, literally. My skin feels super clean afterwards but a tad dry but I always apply moisturiser after I have washed my face, so that doesn't bother me.
I would say if you had dry skin, you might want to give this a miss but I think this would work great on oily/combination skin.
I seriously love this face wash and will definitely be purchasing the full sized version!
