Origins 'Checks and Balances'

Since getting my Clarisonic for Christmas (see post here) I've become absolutely obsessed and use it every single day. I've seen an incredible improvement in my skin and I seriously couldn't be happier. The first cleanser I used with my Clarisonic was Murad's Clarifying Cleanser.  I liked it, but I didn't love it.  So I decided to stroll into one of my favorite places, Origins, and find a good cleanser for use with the Clarisonic from them!  I told the sales associate about my skin, what I'm looking for, my problem areas, etc and she directed me towards one of Origins most popular products Checks and Balances frothy face wash.


Once I used up the rest of Murad, I began using Checks and Balances and I absolutely love it!  It is super frothy so you only need to use a littleeeeee bit which means the product will last a while.  After getting a skin assessment last month I realized my skin has changed and I now have pretty basic combination skin which is right up Checks and Balances runway.  Wheat protein and kelp extract are the main ingredients which fight both dryness and oiliness respectively.  However, one tinyyy downfall to this product is that it is in NO WAY eye sensitive.  If you get this wash in your eyes, it will hurt...bad.  But, if you're careful, which you always should be with facial products around your eyes, then no worries!!   

I feel clean and refreshed after using this with the Clarisonic, but it's also just as good if you don't have a Clarisonic!  The smell is great, and for some strange reason it just literally feels "natural" -- it kinda reminds me of Lush's Coal Face (see post here) in that I feel squeaky clean after using it.  I really think I'm gonna stick to using this product, it's balancing out my skin perfectly and I'm really happy with the results I've had so far!
