OIL FACE CLEANSER and Makeup Remover



Using the power of oil to clean and dissolve skin oil, make-up, debris and old skin.

The idea of cleansing your face with oil to prevent blackheads and Milia may sound strange to some people but for some reason when I first heard about the Oil Cleansing Method (OCM) or Oil Cleansing Treatment (OCT) it made some kind of sense to me.

This comes in a 2 oz bottle with a treatment pump. A little goes a long way.

Oil cleans oil, I’ve known this for a long time and often use oil to remove other old or unwanted oils on objects. Oils have worked well to remove tar from my feet and even had some impact on getting it off towels. It also works to get off sticky substances off of objects or to clean hardened oil off of cooking surfaces.

Knowing this, I see no reason why oil isn’t a great substance to use on those oils blocking our pores.

Oil Can Open Blockages

True, oil is also the cause of blockages but it is internal oil called sebum. Sebum is natures way of cleansing our pores of dead skin cells. However, sometimes this doesn’t go exactly to plan. Too much sebum or other complication can mean that the sebum clumps up with skin and hair and gets trapped in our pores. This can cause bacteria to develop which become pimples.

Black heads occur in a similar way, forming when our natural oil gets trapped in a hair follicle and the oil oxidizes and turns dark. While there is no infection related to blackheads, most of us would prefer not to have them.

For years I’ve been told to be careful using things that will block my pores, especially oil laden lotions and makeup. I was told to look for noncomedogenic (a blackhead is known as a comedeo) products to prevent my pores from getting clogged.

When I began getting those small white pumps around my eyes as I got older called milia ( small epidermal inclusion cysts) I was strongly urged to use only oil-free or water-based products on my face by an esthetician in order to avoid milia and blackheads. I followed her advice for several years but still got those damned white spots.

All accepted wisdom needs to be questioned every now and then. I still agree that oil laden and greasy things left on skin for too long is likely to block pores. However, it seems to me the right oils used properly can prevent and maybe even lessen blackheads and milia by loosening up stubborn sebum and allowing it to be cleansed away.

It may be coincidental but ever since I’ve been using high quality pure oils to gently cleanse my face, I have no white bumps on my face, eyelids or around my eyes and even the bumps that are deep in my skin under my eyes are less noticeable and bumpy.


Can prepare skin by resting a warm wash cloth on face to open up pours. Massage oil onto skin for at least a minute, allowing oil to work on old skin oils and pick up dirt, skin, make-up and dirt on face. The oil will start to feel gritty when it is actively picking up debris. Gently wipe away with soft warm wash cloth. Repeat if desired. Some oil can remain on skin after use, this is okay.

Remember, avoid overzealous cleaning or scrubbing which can cause inflammation and pore damage which can actually cause acne or aging.

    Great for quick removal of makeup after a long day

  7. Adriana D. (verified owner)

    This has helped my skin so much. It did take some getting used to using an oil versus a traditional cleanser but my skin could definitely tell a difference and it shows. Cleans and moisturizes and doesn’t dry out my skin.

    This product was a part of my first purchase from Brenda. I discovered these products (and met Brenda) at a Folk Festival in Pagosa Springs, Colorado. From that day on, I have never used soap on my face again. I was skeptical, but it did not take long for me to see the benefits of this Face Cleanser, I will never go back to soap! I use this in the shower (or evening face washing) after I use the Soda Scrub. I put one pump in my palm, rub my hands together and massage all over my face as well as my neck and decolletage (just below your neck). I use my washcloth to just pat my face, I do not rub or scrub with my washcloth.

    Most amazing product as a cleanser! I had two white eye bumps on my face for years! You know they are gone! Really cleans out your pores! Never used a cleansing oil before it’s amazing! Really transformed my skin! Also a bonus my lines around my eyes are less than ever! My skin really took to this product! I love the way my skin feels afterwards! This is my go to cleanser from now on! Also has a very nice clean smell to it !

  23. Alisha ID

    So far it’s good. I have to use about 4 1/2 pumps so I can massage it into my makeup without it pulling my skin. I’m trying to find a replacement for my old makeup remover that costed double the price. This stuff is good just doesn’t work so well on masca

  24. Dana NV

    I have noticed my skin not being as stripped when I wash my face. It is a bit drying for my combination skin; however I think I’ll just get the anti-aging one and alternate because the cleanser is great. nnUpdate tried the one for aged skin. Beautiful p

    I use this stuff as a moisturizer after I wash and tone my face. And, my skin has never been better. Literally, nothing I’ve ever tried has given me such visible results. I’ve had constant cystic acne on my chin/jaw for the past year and I’m happy to say
