I used this while I was in college after being introduced to it by my friend, Diana. I remember loving it SO much – I used it every single day. Then one day for no reason at all, I stopped. Ok maybe because I ran out and was too lazy to go buy more so I just starting trying other face cleansers. How dumb of me! I LOVE this cleanser and now that I think about it – it did wonders to my skin and always left that nice clean feeling. I have combo skin so it works well, but I wouldn’t recommend it to those of you who have really dry skin because it does give you a tighter, clean feeling afterwards and may make your skin even drier. This is perfect for combo skin and oily as well.  A little goes a long way so this will last you a long time. You will feel so refreshed! Plus I really like the minty lemon tea-ish smell. I always introduce this to my friends, yet I haven’t been using it for a few years now. It’s time to go back since nothing I have tried in the past few years has been better!!

Checks and Balances™ Frothy face wash

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.HOW TO USE: Squeeze small amount into palm, add tepid water to lather. Swirl over skin, steering clear of eyes. Rinse thoroughly. Great for A.M. and P.M. cleansing.Checks & Balances™ is best for combination skin.
