Short post today for the sole purpose of mentioning the magical frothiness that is the Origins checks & balances face wash.
I’m not planning to turn this into a lifestyle blog by any means, but this is the best $21 I’ve spent in a while. No, I do not have any excuses for spending $21 on a tube of gelatinous white stuff. The ethereal glow my skin gets is definitely imaginary, not reality, but if I want to spend $21 to imagine that I look like the dewy Daenerys, then that is my messed-up priority. All that said, this Origins cream is so much better than those awful “gentle” cleansers from Neutrogena that I used for years that I would go back to my 14-year-old self and force her to buy this expensive face soap if I could. Dramatic, yes, I am.
I’m sure some people (or rather, some people’s skin) wouldn’t be moved by the Origins face wash, but it’s very mild and non-irritating, and the reviews on the Origins website are pretty much universally glowing. It also smells like soft peppermint and sage, which is fine by me.
