Facial Cleansers Review

Origins Checks and Balances Cleanser

Origins Checks and Balances Cleanser


  • Stays true to its name. Frothy. You only need a small amount and it lathers up really well.
  • Aromatic Bergamot, Spearmint and Lavender scent leaves your face feeling refreshed. I love it!
  • “Broad Leaf Kelp Extract discourages excess oil production, while Wheat Protein balances and protects dry prone zones.” – Origins. Definitely works well to balance out oily and dry combination skins.


  • Price! It’s about $20 for a 5.0 ounce tube on the Origins website.
Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash

Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash


  • This is an oil-free gel face wash.
  • It serves as a gentle exfoliator with micro-beads. I can feel the micro-beads on my face, but they dissolve really quickly.
  • The scent is really nice. My face feels refreshed. Great to use daily.


  • It’s not as foamy as advertised.
  • A lightweight formula that makes me feel not as clean.
  • From Sephora’s website, it’s $22 for a 6.7 ounce bottle – cheaper if you can find it elsewhere.

Overall thoughts: I prefer Origins. My face feels cleaner and their scent still lingers. Their formula is also thicker, so I don’t need to use as much in one wash. I say, splurge on your skin when you’re younger. It’s important to be on top your game now, rather than play catch up when you’re older.
