    Default Oil Cleansing Method (OCM)

    http://www.theoilcleansingmethod.com/ <--- Source.

    Essentially:

    1. Make an oil mixture custom to your face with castor, sunflower, jojoba, etc.
    2. Put a bunch on your face.
    3. Massage until you're bored.
    4. Keep using steamy hot cloths until they cool like 5 times and wipe away all the moisture.
    5. Repeat as necessary to clean your face. Pretty much do only this for cleaning your face.

    It claims it will give you 'perfect' skin, the principle being oil dissolves oil so you'll take the oil off of your skin without drying it out or making the skin want to overproduce it.. The oil traps dirt, and has anti-bacterial properties, so basically you do this and it'll clear it up.

    I've also seen mixed reviews. People online seem to love it or hate it. The ones who love it claim that the haters don't do the method properly. The ones who hate it say it's too time consuming and doesn't work and made their skin worse.


    Anyone ever tried doing this? did you get the results you were looking for?

    I was thinking about trying it when I get home, only using a facial sauna to steam my face instead of a cloth, and just wiping in-between minutes in the sauna mask.

    Castor and jojoba are some of the best oils I've ever used. I used to apply it onto my face and body in the shower. While it is steamy and hot, I rub it into my face and just leave it there. It washes off on its own eventually.

    Results: My skin loved it. It always looked so flawless and dewy. I didn't have issues with my T-zone either. It was soft. etc. I need to get my hands on some again.

    @YWIR Im glad to hear some positive reviews. There were plenty of negative reviews online, but I'm so tired of people being negative to be honest. I just want answers on if it works or not..

    Im too impatient to do the process as the website states it, but I think a cheap facial sauna would fix that laziness in no time.. just a wash of water and some hydrosol in the mornings, and an oil cleansing in the evenings.. Being as sensitive and acne prone as I am, I could easily see this clogging my pores instead of cleaning them if I didn't do this properly.

    All I have access to here is tea tree oil, and our water doesn't get hot enough to steam (but its the desert, no one really desires hotter water.. 'warm' water FEELS hot here).. I tried it all the same on my face. It did look very moisturized, but I cannot tell if it brought out imperfections or if it clogged my pores a bit.. I ended up washing with soap 30 minutes later because I couldn't stand the feel of oil on my face.

    Hmm. How much do you use? A drop with a bit of hot water should spread very easily across your face without feeling oily.
    My face is very acne prone, so I'm very careful with the stuff I use. Of course, I test things out, which is how I figure what works for me.
    My sister has incredibly bad acne, and swears that castor oil helps fight her facial demons.

    Well that has definitely sparked my interest. We're not allowed to have any sources of heat here so I'd have to wait until I got home.. but the idea of being able to just clean my skin with a bit of oil and being done with it sure is appealing.

    Do you think this system would work well with one of those electric facial exfoliating brushes? Or would that push it too far into the skin?

    Hmm sounds very interesting. Might have to give castor oil a try...

    i use shu uemera cleansing oil daily with my clarisonic.
    even waterproof eye makeup comes off. no scrubbing.
