Oil Cleanse Method


Oil Cleansing is great at removing all your makeup and deep cleaning your skin. I usually do this once a week, but you can definitely do this more often if you want. If you wear a lot of makeup everyday, this will really help to get everything off at night. What I love about oil cleansing, is that most of these products are already in your pantry. When I first started using oils to cleanse, I would mix them in a little tupperware bowl. Now I use a glass dropper bottle, but you can use whatever you have on hand. Now let me try to convince you to use this method yourself, because it’s freaking amazing and your skin will thank me. You can watch my video down below to learn more about this super easy and awesome way to clean your skin!

1. This is way safer than drugstore or high end makeup removers/cleansers. This is as pure as you can get.

2. When you use this on a regular basis, you will see your amount of breakouts significantly drop or completely disappear.

3. This will serve as your makeup remover, cleanser, and moisturizer so you’ll save yourself some timeĀ at night.

4. The oils will extract any dirt, build-up, and makeup that accumulated over the day way more effectively than a typical cleanser.


Castor oil is a great oil to begin with. Use more if you have oily skin, and less if you have dry skin. Then find an oil below to mix with it. I like using 2 parts olive oil and 1 part castor oil. You can also add a little vitamin E to your mixture.
