|I tried it - interesting. I don't think it really made a difference either way. I guess the purpose of it would be to not use chemical soaps on your face???
you must have really healthy skin!
the purpose of it is to clean the skin w/o disturbing its natural ph or stripping its oils in any way, which even gentle soap does do. also, olive oil is chock full of antioxidants & apparently (i didn't know this before) castor or "palma christi" oil is used for all kinds of healing, cleansing, drawing qualities in many medicinal/healing traditions (ayurveda is one in particular).
also it seems to be a godsend for people with rosacea or acne, who flare up when their skin is irritated or dried out.
i've tried this for 2 nights & really am amazed at how velvety & clear my skin is. it's very dewy & almost translucent. dh is used to me trying new things & asking him what he thinks & usually he's like, yeah, sure, but last night he told me he really thinks my face looks different. i like to massage my face and all -- it's like a little spa visit!
anyone else feel that "drawing" sensation when they massage the oil? it feels to me like it does when i steam my face. i also have found comedones slipping out of their pores as i clean. ick! glad to see 'em go!
