While it seems natural to think that applying an oil directly to the skin may result in excess sebum, in fact the opposite is true. We all know that oil & water don't mix & that like attracts like, so what actually occurs with oil-based cleansing is that the product works to dissolve excess oil in the skin, gently cleansing pores & ridding impurities in the process. Considering that many cosmetics, foundations in particular, are oil-based, it's also a perfect option for removing make up.
The phenomenal product that has stolen my heart? AEOS's Cleansing Oil De-Maq. This luxuriously-scented, golden oil is created with a potent blend of organic & biodynamic Spelt, Jojoba, Grape Seed, Sesame Seed, Avocado and Rosewood oils & is a complete joy to use. Just a few drops of this exquisite product in the palm of my hand is enough to cleanse my face & neck...leaving my skin feeling deeply clean & cashmere-soft. It's a product that not only treats your skin, but that elevates cleansing from an everyday essential to a luxurious ritual.
