    Kuno, how do you use your CO? I've started using it on my face, but it doesn't really *help* to control spots, it just makes my skin less dry (which always happened with Proactiv) and makes it a little softer. Lately, I'll moisten my face, rub it in and leave it in for a minute or two, then rinse and wipe. (And no lotion afterward, who knew!) Is this what you do?


    With the EVOO routine, they suggest heating a washcloth and leaving it on your face so dirt is drawn out. Seems kind of like a pain in the butt to me...

    Jess, I do that with the Castor Oil and EVOO. I massage it on my face and then use the hot steam from a large washcloth/ small towel to wipe the excess off. It does wonders for clearing out my pores.


    I'm not acne free yet, but my occurences are MUCH less the more I do it (which is about 2 - 3x/ week).

    Sassa, do you cleanse your face on the other days? Do you think it's necessary to have a hot steamy washcloth, or do you think it's sufficient to just let it soak in?

    I actually won a ton of Korres stuff recently, so I've been using it. I like the few things I've tried so far, though I agree that their ingredient lists aren't always as impressive as I'd like. I will say all their products smell really nice but aren't overpowering. My bf loves it when I use the guava lotion I did buy their cover-up a while back but hated it.


    If you want to research their ingredients, I recommend this site:

    They have some Korres products on there, and they range from great ratings to terrible, so it's a toss-up. You can research ingredients if the actual product isn't there.

    @Jess:

    When I get out of the shower, I towel off, then apply the CO to my entire body and face (while my hair is still pinned up so it doesn't get greasy).

    I usually then get dressed; by the time I go back in to put make-up on, most of the CO on my face has already absorbed into the skin. I just wipe lightly with a dry towel to be sure, then put on the "war paint".


    Hope this helps ;-)

    Sorry, new to this post. So, is the Caster Oil to help with the overall condition of the skin or for softness.


    Sorry if this is a dumb question.

    @ Pauleygirl & Jess: Castor Oil is more of a 'toxicity' cleanse product when applied topically. It binds to the oils in your pores (the dirt-filled ones AND the normal/ clean ones) and helps to pull/ extract all the oil out, so a hot washcloth or steam bath will help to soften the pores & the oil for easier extraction, as well as to help expel the stuff 'outward'. Castor oil does help with softness too.


    The mixture should be 1 part Castor Oil and 2 - 3 parts 'carrier' oil, such as Almond Oil, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Organic Coconut Oil, etc, since the Castor Oil is pretty darn thick and sticky.


    I do cleanse with normal cleanser in between days, although I'm not sure that it's really that necessary now that I do oil-cleansing.


    I know I've shouted this before, but I can't help but telling you what a GOD-SEND this method has been!!!! I am, as of right now, completely blemish and blocked-pore free!!!


    I even had wonderful results in clearing the pores on my upper arms by following the same Castor oil-cleansing method!

    I use coconut oil on my face and my acne is much better than before (eating paleo helps too). I take a shower and when I towel off, I don't blot my face. By the time I get all my shower stuff out of the bathroom and I'm back to my room, my face is still moist and that is when I apply a teeny tiny amount of coconut oil and spread it around (get neck and chest too, sometimes my entire body). It might look shiny for a minute or so, but by the time I am dressed it is no longer greasy. Seems like this kind of mimics the skin's natural process because I (unnaturally) wash a lot of it off with soap in the shower, therefore I am just replacing that little bit that was stripped.
