I never thought washing my face with any sort of oil would make my face seem cleaner or better looking - as my face hates oil with a passion. But after figuring out some time ago how to get oil off my Hunter boots, actually using oil - I thought; well I could just use Olive oil to do the job.
It was ok, but over time it wasn't great. So, I did some online research on some cheapish cleansing oil, and I came across DHC cleansing oil and thank goodness for that.
I can't quite explain to anyone how important it is to use this pre-wash as a makeup remover, or to remove any sort of oil or residue that clogs pores and creates problem skin.
Vitamin E and Olive oil make sure to keep your face from getting tight and dry, while the rosemary, being a part of the mint family, naturally acts as an astringent, and also an antioxidant, helping to fight free radicals within the skin.
The key is to apply it right onto your makeup or on your face in general, before using a facial cleanser. I have combination/sensitive skin, and I usually have much problems finding great products for my face, as I tend to break out right away and quite easily.
But, I can not rave enough about this product, in addition to stress the use of it before you begin your cleansing regimen. I personally found it cheap on Ebay - as it was available from Japan (the Japanese people love also this product, which is why I went for it in the end - as I am also a huge fan of using Japanese skincare and foundation products) and they shipped to Norway from there.
It's not expensive right from the DHC site neither, and is available in the UK, Canada and U.S.A. I am quite interested in trying out other DHC products in the future.
