Oil cleansing is usually done before bed and is beneficial for all skin types. And all you makeup fans will love how our Facial Cleansing Oil melts that makeup off.
Because there are no harsh chemicals or ingredients in our Cleansing Oil, it is suitable for all skin types, from sensitive to oily. That's right oily babes, our Facial Cleansing Oil is a bonus for you too. When we strip our skin of its sebum (oil), it goes into overdrive, trying to create more, which often leads to clogged pores, blackheads, whiteheads, irritation, etc.
- Use a generous amount of oil, start with about the size of a quarter and add more if needed.
- Rub your hands together to warm the oil up and then smooth it over your face. Massage the Facial Cleansing Oil into your face for a couple of minutes to remove the day.
Take your time, using slow and firm motions, to massage the oil deep into your pores. Take specific care to work any problem areas.
- Once you feel like your pores are fully saturated, pick up a wet, warm (but not hot) washcloth. Place the washcloth over your face. Leave it there for 10 – 20 seconds to open the pores.
- Gently wipe the day away and rinse the washcloth out. Wipe, rinse, repeat as needed until your face feels free of residue.
- Follow with a toner and any of our facial oils or Beauty Butter.
*Of course you can forgo the warm washcloth steaming and simply wipe the Cleansing Oil off; however, it is recommended to do a washcloth steam if you are removing makeup or are going for a "deeper" clean.
* You may also work a small amount of your regular cleanser over your oiled face and then rinse off with water or a cloth.

FYIs About Oil Cleansing
- It may take 1-2 weeks for your skin to adjust to this new, healthier regimen.
- Oil cleansing does mean there is a little more laundry, due to the numerous washcloths you’ll go through if you do this every night. We recommend a new, clean washcloth per nightly cleansing session.
Depending how you store your product, our Facial Cleansing Oil is good for 6-12 months. Can be stored in fridge.
