I have used this product for over 8 years. It does not cause any breakouts. My face does feel clean after using it. It does not give me the feeling of that there is still soap on my face or anything like that.

I have combination skin and at the end of the day, all my T-zone and cheeks covered by oils. This cleaner does get rid of my oils on the top my skin but not for deeper layer of …

So I really like this cleanser because it really does remove my makeup. It doesn't remove all of my mascara but i haven't found a cleanser that does so that is a non-issue for me. My requirements for a cleanser is that I can do a toner test after and see no traces of makeup left on the cotton pad. I hate having to double cleanse and am always on the lookout for a cleanser that …Read more

I tried this out for two days morning and night. It dried out my slightly oily skin horribly (including eyelids and lips) and gave me small white headed pimples all over my chin and one larger one on my forehead (which I don't get. If I break out it is usually on my cheeks.). My skin also puffed up a bit and wrinkles appeared above and below my scar that I have next to my eye, so I caught a …Read more

I really like this cleanser. Most cleansers make my skin feel tight and dry and uncomfortable even if they claim to be gentle. When I first used this cleanser I assumed that because it was very foamy and frothy (a little really goes a long way, by the way) that my face would be dry afterward. Nope - this stuff leaves my face feeling immaculately clean and with no feeling of dryness. It is also …Read more

As someone with normal skin (neither too dry or too oily, or acne-prone), Origins Checks & Balances is one product I treat myself to frequently. I found that all you need is a small dot amount, mixed with water and that is entirely enough gentle frothiness to cleanse your entire face, neck & decollate with - thus, this product lasts me a long time (unless I accidentally squeezed out too …Read more

This does smell nice and is inexpensive since you only need a very small amount. However, that is the only good thing I can say about it. I am in my 50's with dry skin and this made my face break out as bad as when I was a teenager. I stopped using it to see if this was causing the breakouts and sure enough, my face cleared up. Used it again just a couple of times and broke out major …Read more

I've been using this for quite a while now and it is a good cleanser. A few things I'm not too sure about - one is the texture as it reminds me of toothpaste and the other is my skin does sometimes feel a little stripped after use. I will try other cleansers but if I don't like them I will repurchase this one

Edit: In the end this was too stripping - left my face tight …

Checks and Balances is a good cleanser as has never made me break out but I realized that my face always felt like it was stripped of all my moisture and almost had a waxy feel. Price used to be about $20 and is now $23. Has simple packaging like the rest of origins products. Haven't used this in a while but considering going back to it.

History: for transparency, I love Origins and worked for the line! But I am doing this objectively.

I love the smell and texture of this creamy, non-greasy formula. It definitely is not creamy like a "creme" cleanser, but more like a water-based-gel cream. It's almost iridescent in color, and white.

Notes:
- a little goes a VERY long way. Use only a …
