I came across and article a while back about using olive and castor oil to wash you face.
My skin is super-sensitive and has gotten quite dry and blah over the last couple of years.

Basically that using a high quality oil to clean your clean your sensitive skin, cuts the bad, acne causing oil and replaces it with good oil.

I just started last night and I love it already. After I finished last night, my skin felt smooth clean, not dry and tight like it usually does.
I also had to use much less moisturizer this morning.

Is there anyone else out there using oil to wash their face?

I use 100% argan oil on my face every once in a while, especially right after a ski trip/dry conditions.
I have combo skin, so I don't use it every day, but when I do it is amazing!!!
I have the .5 ounce bottle of this that I got for $14...it has lasted 2 years because you only need 2-4 drops from the eyedropper.

I like this part of the description:
What else you need to know:
100% Pure Argan Oil is first cold pressed to ensure the best quality, highest-grade oil.
It is housed in a recyclable glass bottle and purchased from women's cooperatives in Morocco to support their social and economic welfare.
These cooperatives work within a UNESCO biosphere reserve that ensures the protection and reforestation of Argan trees.

My dry skin problems all cleared up when I switched from store oils to butter, lard, and olive oil ONLY. At the same time I switched to raw milk. Not sure which did the trick, but keep in mind that the skin and hair are the outward indication of what is happening inside and of your overall health. Now the only thing I need is some coconut oil from time to time, mostly if I get chapped lips or dry hands from working in the earth too much.

I did some research myself about Argan Oil quality and why is it so expensive. I found out that Argan oil is actually cheaper! How? Argan oil can replace most of the skin, hair and nails products! 14$ for .5oz sounds pretty expensive though!
This Article details why this oil is expensive at first sight and why it's cheaper in reality when looking at the details from another angle!
