    Facial Cleansing Oils

    A lot of facial cleansing oils are now on the market. Do you use them? What's your take?

    My skin tends to be on the oily side but it dries out in the Winter. I moisturize day and night. Lately I've been using Garnier Nourishing Cleansing Oil. It's OK but I'm looking for other ideas

    no I don't use them as my skin tends to be OILY but can also get dry depending on the cleanser I use.

    (usually if my skin is really dry then the cleanser probably has harsh ingredients like sulphates etc)

    anyhoo, I sometimes dab a bit of jojoba oil on certain ares of my skin before putting on a tinted moisturizer in the morning.


    the trend was probably picked up from the european markets, though I had seen one or two products here and there prior to the full on trend
    . much like U.S. picked up the bb creams, now cc creams etc from the asian markets.


    let us know how it work out for you.

    They have oil cleansers for OILY skin. And apparently the Oil Cleansing Method (OCM) is The Authority on this stuff and has an almost cult-like following

    Top of the list is castor oil. Too much of it will actually dry out your skin. One comment I read is to combine castor oil with hemp oil (1:10 ratio). As you rub the oil in your skin, it extracts blackheads, whiteheads, etc.. You rinse off with cool water, pat dry, then shazzam!

    I've also been hearing a lot about Shu Uemura oils

    How does using an oil during the cleansing phase work? Wouldn't oil counteract the cleansing process?

    You will need:
    • oil
    • warm face towel
    • warm damp cotton washcloth
    • warm water


    Steps:
    1. Cleanse: Gently massage oil to your face for about 30 seconds
    2. Open pores: Apply warm towel to your face for about 30 seconds
    3. Remove oil: Lightly (do not scrub!) remove oil with washcloth
    4. If you used excess oil: Splash warm water on face and gently pat dry.
