Product Highlights
I use this product two times a day. My skin in on the oiler side and tend to have sensitive skin. It will also dry out with other products. However, the Origins Check and Balances face wash is amazing. My skin feels clean and fresh after using it. It does not dry out my face and it removes my make up. My boyfriend uses it as well. We have been using it for over a year now. It is my go to product. in reviews
It smells like spearmint, froths like a dream (a little goes a long way) and really makes my face feel clean and soft!!!in reviews
I have combination skin and have always struggled to find a face wash that could clear up my acne.in reviews
It is very creamy and foams up very nice so a little goes a long way which is great and it leaves my face feeling nice & fresh as well as glowing.in reviews

I was recommended this face wash by a Sephora staff member. I told her I had sensitive, acne prone skin and this was her suggestion. I used it for a few days but it seems to irritate my skin more. I looked into it, and it has a TON of essential oils in it, which can irritate skin. I would steer clear.

I have tried many types of cleansers. There were many bad ones among them, and many good ones as well. But this little jar .. How to say, you should try! Cleanses the skin very well, I think I washed my face for the first time. I will definitely buy the full size.

I had a sample to try and I definitely liked it more than I thought it would, except for the scent! (It kind of reminds me of floral toothpaste haha) But the fragrance doesn't linger, it's very gentle and didn't irritate my sensitive skin, left a nice clean feeling and didn't "strip" my skin, and the texture/lather was great. Definitely will keep this in my travel bag!

This is a satisfying face wash. Super frothy, and unscented!! Differently from some brands, it does not dry out your skin. That said, I do have sensitive skin, especially on winter time when my skin starts peeling like crazy. My skin is clear and hydrated, so far, so good! 🌸

This is one of my all time favorite cleansers! I have repeatedly purchased the Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash. This was the first Origins product I had tried and I still use it, years later. I used to get regular bouts of adult acne that would get exacerbated with harsher face washes and it’s basically a non-issue now.

I received a sample size of this Origins facial cleanser. I really love how gentle it is on my skin. I use it in the am and pm to cleanse my face before I do my skincare routine. It has a minty scent and a slight cooling sensation on my face. It only takes a pea size amount on the palm of your hand with a little water. It makes a lot of froth that will be enough for your entire face. This cleanser makes my skin feel soft and smooth. I would definitely suggest Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash. I will be purchasing a full size bottle once my sample size runs out.

This face wash product lathered well on my face as it was described to do. It had a very light pleasant scent. I do not like the way my skin felt after using it, however. My face felt squeaky clean literally. I feel like it is a bit too harsh and potentially drying.

did not like this cleanser at all- it gives a minty clean feeling after washing it off, (which people seem to think leaves you “squeaky clean” but its actually super irritating and drying for your face) a cleaner should clean and not strip your face of its natural oils!! would not recommend

I enjoyed washing my face with this product. It has a fresh almost minty scent. It goes on very creamy which feels nice and then lathers in a froth. When I rinsed it off, my skin felt a bit firm. I don’t know if that’s a good or bad thing. It didn’t sting my sensitive skin which is good. I do notice my face looks a little red in the cheek areas, but not unusual. This image shows my skin right after washing it & drying my face. No other products. See below for more product information that I found online: Key Ingredients Broad Leaf Kelp Extract Wheat Protein Tourmaline Mint essential oil Formulated Without Parabens Phthalates Sodium Lauryl Sulfate Propylene Glycol Mineral Oil Petrolatum Paraffin Polyethylene beads Formaldehyde Animal Ingredients (except cruelty-free honey & beeswax) 100% Vegetarian 100% Vegan (without any animal ingredients) #facial #cleanface #skincare

I have used both and I feel the Tatcha Rice Cleanser is more of a moisturized wash and Origins is that more squeaky clean. Origins is clearing up my stress related breakouts. So I guess it depends on what you want. Acne issues go Origins and moisturizing issues go for Tatcha.
