Okay friends - who among you has heard of the Oil Cleansing Method (OCM) for washing your face? I keep hearing about it in random places all over blog-land, and while I am intrigued by it, I'm also mildly terrified of it. (If you want the full synoposis of what it is, check out this post by Crunchy Betty). Basically, it entails using a combination of oils to wash your face. We're talking oil like natural and organic olive, grapeseed, jojoba or castor oil here, folks, not some synthetic oil created in some lab somewhere.
I've struggled with dry skin before, and I thought that I'd found the solution - using the same face cream that my grandmother used to use! But this winter, it hasn't been doing the trick as well as I'd like. Buying expensive beauty products is not in our budget, and I rather like the idea of using a natural cleanser which moisturizes your skin at the same time.
So my plea: does anyone use the OCM, or do you know of anyone that has? If so, did they have any terrible response to using oil on their face? I just don't want to try this and have my skin react poorly...I know I could read through hundreds of comments on the dozens of blogs that have mentioned the OCM, but if someone I know (or "know") has tried OCM, I'll feel a lot more comfortable trying it!
Thanks, you lovely people!
