The Face Cleaner Every Woman Should Try

I'm taking a break from writing about the "woo-woo" law of attraction stuff to instead share some love for my favorite beauty product on the planet. Why the change in topic for this particular post? Because I ran out of the darned stuff, and I'm currently living that old adage, "you don't know what you've got until it's gone." Or, to borrow what is perhaps a slightly out-of-place quote from Django Unchained, I miss it "like a baby misses his mammy's titty."

I'm talking about DHC's Deep Cleansing Oil. If you're a guy reading this post, you're not going to care enough to continue reading (and that's OK; you won't offend me...LOL.) But if you're a woman, particularly one that wears makeup on a regular basis (or even if you don't) trust me when I say this stuff is the bomb. And despite being made out of specially filtered and purified olive oil, this product will not clog your pores or give you acne. This is coming from someone with naturally oily skin who had acne for a period when she was in her 20s, and I've been using this product for probably a good decade without a single problem. 

I first discovered DHC when they sent me a sample of this oil plus a few of their other goodies in a catalog. I was really skeptical at first -- whoever heard of putting oil on your face to clean it? -- but once I tried it I have never stopped using it. This miracle cleanser dissolves makeup, even if it's waterproof, cleans your pores, removes loose skin cells, and softens your skin without making it greasy or leaving any kind of residue/buildup behind. The way it works is this: you dispense a pump or two into your dry hand and rub it all over your dry face. Yes, dry face. That's because Deep Cleansing Oil actually dissolves in water. So, when you're done rubbing it in, you rinse it off with warm water, then use your favorite cleanser to make sure your face is truly clean. Then you can use your favorite toner and/or moisturizer.

This is the company's best-selling product worldwide and their website says a bottle is sold every 10 seconds, and I believe it. All of their products are made in Japan and for the most part, they try to limit artificial and/or harmful ingredients in their items. 

There's no added fragrance, which is another reason why I love DHC products; to me, the oil just has a natural olive oil aroma. But the reason I love it so much is because I can't even explain how smooth and soft it leaves my skin. Trying to wash my face this week using just my cleanser and water has been torture by comparison. My hands don't glide over my face easily and it just doesn't feel as clean. And with a cold snap over New England right now, my face could really use this oil. I also wouldn't be surprised if it helps keep wrinkles and fine lines at bay through the years; supposedly the oil contains antioxidants. I actually can't say enough about DHC's products; there's only been maybe a couple that I've tried that I just didn't like. 

The one downside to this item is that you have to be careful not to get it in your eyes; it does sting like the dickens (and having cloudy oil on your eyeball is not the most comfortable feeling.) But other than that, it gets an A+ rating from me. 

I sent an email to DHC customer service asking about the status of my order; they said they would look into it, and so far there's been no further word...but in the meantime, I'm pretty sure you can contact them for samples of Deep Cleansing Oil, along with a catalog. They also make the best darned liquid eyeliner I've ever tried, but that's a post for another time.
