Cleansing Oils 101

BeautyLibby RasmussenComment

So you might have passed by some cleansing oils while in Target or your favorite drugstore thinking that the LAST thing your face needed was extra oil (picturing yourself around 3pm, shiny, blotting with rice papers or for some, toilet seat covers). I used to think the same thing until my most recent facial.  My esthetician raved about the benefits of using oils on the face, especially for full make-up removal.  She also explained that it would in turn make my complexion less oily because cleansing oil uses the "good oils" from my skin to remove the "bad oils" which if you think about it, makes a lot of sense.

If you're interested in how to use cleansing oils, here's a great step-by-step guide on how to use them effectively.  Which cleansing oils do you use?
