Here's all the deets about Lavender Marshmallow Cleansing oil! Written up by Mother Mountain Herbals goddess Stina Swesey:
Celebrate your face with the nourishing power of medicinal herbs and oil. Organic cold-pressed sunflower oil comes together with soothing, skin-loving flowers and roots to make an all purpose cleanser that your skin will thank you for. Specially crafted for all skin types to maintain health, vitality, and glow. Sunflower oil is non-comedogenic and will not clog pores. Suitable for use with the Hot Cloth or Oil Cleansing Method.
Have you tried the oil cleansing/hot cloth method yet? If not, you're about to fall in LOVE. Check out what acne.com has to say about oil cleansing:
"Oil dissolves oil. One of the most basic principals of chemistry is that “like dissolves like.” The best way to dissolve a non-polar solvent like sebum/oil, is by using another non-polar solvent similar in composition: Other oils. By using the right oils, you can cleanse your pores of dirt and bacteria naturally, gently and effectively, while replacing the dirty oil with beneficial ones extracted from natural botanicals, vegetables and fruit that heal, protect and nourish your skin. When done properly and consistently, the OCM can clear the skin from issues like oily skin, dry skin, sensitive skin, blackheads, whiteheads and other problems caused by mild to moderate acne–while leaving your skin healthy, balanced and properly moisturized."
How it works:
-Pour a quarter sized puddle of oil into the palm of your hand
-Gently massage oil onto your face, including the eye area to dissolve eye makeup
-Run a wash cloth under hot water and ring it out
-Place hot cloth (not so hot that it burns your skin) over your face and let it sit for 30 seconds to a minute. This allows the pores to open and impurities to be removed.
-Gently wipe your face clean with the hot cloth
-Follow up with your favorite toner and moisturize
-Done! It's that easy. A 5 minute self care ritual that will leave you feeling like you just walked out of a mini-facial. So refreshed and clean!
