This cleansing oil was selected as the 2014 Earth Day Beauty Award Winner in the acne zapping category! This cleansing oil is wonderful on skin which tends to be combination, active, prone to blemishes, or stressed with rashes and uneven coloration. Extra virgin olive oil is an ancient remedy for skin care and addresses any concerns from acne therapy to anti-aging therapy. This gentle way to cleanse is loaded with antioxidants and Vitamins A and E, and cleansing will leave no oily residue. This formula includes the perfect amount of castor oil to cleanse active skin, and it provides potent anti-inflammatory properties, as well as a natural ability to heal.
The oil from the sea buckthorn berry can help to balance the skin and it also contains anti-inflammatory agents. Fatty omega acids can help restore the surface, and the cleanser helps the skin to remain strong and heal itself. Any itchy or rash areas are also addressed as it is a mild analgesic. Perfect for skin that can be unpredictable with a bit of activity, redness, or acne.
The oils working in harmony with just the right therapeutic flower actives of lavender, thyme, and geranium are a natural remedy that penetrates deeply into your skin. They will not only cleanse, but can help your skin heal itself while brightening your complexion. This cleansing oil balances the skin while maintaining the proper level of moisture without drying it out.
Shake and place a small amount (start with about 1/8 of a teaspoon, or .60 ml, and add more if needed) in the palm of your hand. Massage onto your complexion ~ you'll want just enough to allow your fingers to easily move over your skin's surface. Start with a small amount. Many use their cleansing oil to remove eye makeup, or you can use our Supple Eye Makeup Remover separately.
Moisten washcloth with warm water and remove cleanser entirely. Makeup, sunscreen and impurities are whisked away without over drying or stripping the skin. If exfoliating, you can add the exfoliator directly over the cleansing oil before removing, or remove cleanser completely and exfoliate afterward. It's lovely to use every evening. If skin is normal or dry, it may not be necessary re-cleanse in the morning, just prepare skin for the serum. Acne-prone skin and skin dealing with mishaps may benefit from cleansing morning and night.
