I have been using this as my facial cleanser on and off for a while now. I originally found it at simplemom.net. It seems odd at first – I mean cleaning with oil? My face? But this combo actually bonds with the oil and impurities in your skin and works great … and it’s cheap!! I have pretty good skin that can be a little dry and I mix mine half and half. Half Olive Oil Half Castor Oil. Just massage a small amount into your skin before before bed for a minute or so and then rest a hot wet washcloth on your face for 30 seconds or so then wipe clean with said washcloth! Your face will feel fabulous! The beauty of the mixture is that if you are more prone to oily skin or blackheads you just switch up the recipe and put it in more castor oil than olive oil and vice versa!!!
