Having combination skin can be a hassle. Finding the right cleanser is darn nearly impossible. They would either dry out your skin and leave it all red, or be too moisturizing and leave a film on top which would look like an oil slick a few hours into the day. Well, ladies, fear not for I have found a solution!!
Origins Checks and Balances frothy face wash.
Designed for combination skin, this creamy face wash provides the right amount of cleansing properties to suit both areas of concern of your skin. This is the description provided from their site:
"When it comes to faces with dry and oily places, it takes a clever cleanser to balance the two. This gentle, frothy face wash carefully does both jobs without canceling each other out. Broad Leaf Kelp Extract discourages excess oil production, while Wheat Protein balances and protects dry prone zones. And Tourmaline actually makes water wetter to more easily disperse dirt and sebum down the drain. There's also aromatic Bergamot, Spearmint and Lavender to add pleasure to the process. Skin feels comfortably refreshed after cleansing, never tight, pulled or parched."
This creamy cleanser left my face squeaky clean without feeling tight or irritated. Best part is that it seems to help control my oily nose! It retails at $21 and is available at Sephora and their site Origins. You may think it's a little pricey for a face wash but I assure you that it will last you for long while. A little bit goes a long way, and I mean loooong way! I take a pea size amount and mix it with water (duh!) and it makes a frothy foamy wash that covers your entire face and neck. I love it!!
I might have to try more things from this brand. I like that it uses natural ingredients AND it works. Well, check it out if you're like me and have combination skin in need of a good face wash! Though I think that all skin types can use this one.
