I haven't washed my face in weeks...

Let me rephrase that. ;-)
I haven't washed my face with soap in weeks. :-)

For about six weeks now,
I have been using the
and I LOVE it.

I was skeptical at first
but thought it was worth a try.
I wasn't having any trouble with my skin,
I was just attracted to the simplicity of the method,
the cost savings,
and after reading about it, 
it really does make a lot of sense.

I have been very pleased with the results.
I love how my skin looks and feels before bedtime, 
And for me, that's saying a lot!
I don't go anywhere without my makeup.
If the barn needs paintin'... ;-)

The method is simple.
A blend of castor oil - the wonder oil,
and a thinner oil - I use olive oil. 
You blend the two according to your skin type.

I have balanced skin
so I use a blend of 20% castor oil

and 80% olive oil.

I blend it up, give the bottle a good shake,
put the olive oil back in the pantry,
put the castor oil back in the medicine cabinet,
and I'm good to go for several weeks.

I do the method in the evening 
and then simply flush my face with cool water in the morning
before I apply my makeup.

Read about it!
And, if you give it a  try, let me know. :-)

Do you have a suggestion for the % of oil for someone with dry skin?

It's all listed in the article. You definitely need to read the article to get all of the details on the method! :-)

Never heard of this interesting. I will read the article. I want to know how to remove your eye makeup.

I use argan oil both to cleanse and moisturize. It's incredible. I used to have oily/acne skin, and so I thought there was no way this would work for me. Turns out all of the harsh scrubs and chemicals were the very things causing my skin to overproduce oil and react with breakouts.

I wash my face with the argan oil cleanser at night, and then pat in a small amount of argan oil before I go to bed. All I have to do in the morning is splash my face with a little bit of water, and I am good to go.

Makes me wonder what other convential products I can easily get rid of and replace with more natural products. I've heard about the "no poo" routine but that one scares me a little, LOL. I'm not sure how my hair would do with it. :)

No poo is next on my list, but I am still a little nervous about it, too! I also want to try the natural/homemade deodorants and toothpastes. One baby step at a time. :-)

I'm going to give it a try! Thanks for sharing :)

I was just wondering now that it has been a few months since you posted the ocm, how are you liking the way your face feels? Many people on the internet say that after a few months, they have massive breakouts. I just found your blog and was very excited about the method. I made some up and tried it this week. I have a clear face, but I did get a pimple. I am nervous to keep going since it is a week before Christmas with all sorts of visitors and all. I hope you get a chance to update us on your face situation?? Thank you,
