I have oily/combination skin and cannot be bothered much with facial routines. So the fast and easy option is always my choice :) Unfortunately, this means I clean my face while I shower and this severely dehydrates my skin. Some time ago I discovered the wonder that is the Shu UEmura cleansing oils. With them my skin remained moist, got cleaned, and did not dehydrate. All that while showering! Only problem they are not natural products as Neal's are. I have been looking for a long time to substitute these oils with a natural product and bought this for that reason. I use just a bit, rub it between my hands so it turns into oil, pat over moist skin and after shower just gently dry with muslin cloth. The skin feels and looks wonderful! Even better results to the Shu UEmura oils :o I also used it as recommended and as an essential oil. Some compared it to the Eve Lom cleaner. Eve Lom spreads more easily and is more soft buttery in texture. This product is harder to manipulate. However it has more uses and it is natural. I find the key to get my level of satisfaction is to manipulate product first by rubbing it between your hands so it melts into oily consistence. Then move on to use it as a rich oil product :) I hope you will enjoy as much as I did!
