Facial Cleanser

We've been using a surprisingly wonderful face wash for about 6 months. Guess What it is?



Olive & Castor Oil!

I was really surprised at how well it works and you can customize the formula to you own needs. For people with T-zone, dry or oily conditions. At www.theoilcleansingmethod.com/ they give all the details.

I used an old facial cleanser bottle and tweaked the instructions to fit our needs.

-15% Castor oil

-85% olive oil

-Shake and place in shower with wash cloth.

- Gently rub 1 to 2 pumpfuls into face, neck, ears etc. (before you get in)

-Use the warmth of shower to open pores.

-Heat wash cloth with water, place on face for a minute or so. Then gently rub off excess oil, make up and dirt.

Like I said, we've been using this for 6 months or so. In that time I've had only 1 blemish (I'm a t-zone). My face is so much smoother and softer and this is all I do. No more 3 parts, no extra lotions! The above recipe has worked well for dry and t-zone. So we only have 1 bottle to contend with. Nice...

This is a winner and so frugal. That big bottle of Castor oil was $7.50 from my favorite online store ( this will last my family well over a year) and we've always got cold pressed olive oil on hand!

Give it a try and let me know what you think!

For other Frugal ideas head over to http://www.lifeasmom.com/ or http://www.wearethatfamily.com/ for WFMW ideas...

Yes, I'm double posting! I this has really worked for us and I wanted other to hear about. Hope it haelpd someone.

Blessings,

julie

What about your husband? Does he use it? How does it work for him? Why have you removed his picture?

Yes, Superman does use it, that's the reason we started. His skin VERY supple in a burly guy kind of way.
His picture was removed because he is just too cute and I didn't want the other bloggers to see what a great thing I have!

I will have to go over to the site you linked. I have very oily skin so it does scare me to put oil on it, but I also know that olive oil is good for the skin. I'll have to read up.

Your megaphone is funny, but a great idea. We have a one story home, but if my kids are listening to separate music or audio books they close their doors. Mmmm, might have to try this.

Thanks for commenting on my hallway post. It has been so nice to look down the hall and see something prettier than either a closed door or a bathroom. The glass door cabinet you have sounds pretty. It is really nice to add these touches here and there.
