Origins Checks & Balances Cleanser

Origins Checks & Balances cleanser: £17.00

I'm always on the hunt for a cleanser, I've tried so many and my previous one was Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish. If I'm honest, I didn't like it, I don't see how it is a "holy grail" product and I never ever felt like my make-up was properly being removed. Before the Liz Earle cleanser, I was using an Estee Lauder foaming cleanser which I loved. I really enjoy foaming cleansers because I feel like I'm working the product into the skin and you can see the make-up being removed.

Again, after my trip to Origins, I was keen to try out their cleansers. I love that the Origins products are all natural and that's one thing I didn't like about the Estee Lauder cleanser, I felt like it was too "artificial" (if any of you understand that?) but with the Origins cleanser, I know it's not.
What I love about Origins products is a little goes a long way. With this cleanser, you only need to apply a pea sized amount as it's thick in consistency and will cover the whole face and lather up adequately (the product does lather up more than what is shown on the photo). It has a spearmint scent but it isn't too overpowering, it's subtle and refreshing. When I remove this, I feel like my skin is properly cleansed and left feeling refreshed, softer and thoroughly clean.

I've had nothing but good results from using the Origins products at the moment and I can safely say it's my go-to skincare brand at the moment.

Origins Checks and Balances is available from Boots, Debenhams and online.


  1. I've never actually tried Origins before but the brand looks and sounds good :) Might have a look for the brand on holiday :)


  2. Mmmm spearmint scent! Sounds yummy! I think I'd be somewhat tempted to eat it! x

  3. I really want to purchase some origins products, I need to finish all my other stuff first though! I am such a hoarder. xx

  4. I have to admit, I'd never tried Origins products before, but now that I've read your last couple of reviews, I'm awfully tempted to pick something up next time I'm in Boots! xx

  5. I've never used any Origins products, but it sounds like they really do the trick for you! I'll look out for them next time I'm in need of something like that, thanks! Just started a blog, would appreciate it if you could take a look, you might like it! Thank you : )

  6. i like the fact that they its natural- better for sensitve skin which i have.
