I can't thank you enough for starting this thread. I read some of the other boards linked to in this post and have learned a lot
DH and I have been using this for 2 weeks now. I typically have combo skin...drier in the winter but oilier in the t-zone after a few hours. I get the occasional pimple but my primary problem is uneven skin tone/color....I'm quite blotchy normally. DH is combo as well...he gets a pimple or two a week.
We've been using unrefined coconut oil (just Spectrum since we have it on hand) and organic EVOO in a 50/50 mixture. It is working out wonderfully.
I actually mixed some up and traveled with it while we were away over the holidays because we like it so much.
I can tell today, after doing this for 2 weeks now, that my skin tone has evened out noticeably. I mean, noticeably. I still use mineral makeup foundation, but my skin is *much* better looking. DH isn't breaking out any more, and maybe a bit less in fact. He agrees his face is NOT oily from the cleanser, but is much more moisturized and *feels* better.
I actually looked for castor oil at Whole Foods before Christmas but it was a madhouse and I couldn't find it
. I'm happy with the coconut oil/EVOO combo though so for now I'll stick with that.
DH and I feel like we've been duped all of these years LOL. He keeps saying it
We are so happy with this routine and I hope we keep seeing good results from it because we
it. I feel like I know some secret now or something
I have to share with my mom...I bet she'd love it.
Thanks again for the thread!!
