I only knew of the Salic acid or whatever the typical acne ingredient is. I am on clinique's line. what I usually use (I used to use proactive once a month or so.)
My friend keeps showing me all these stupid expensive products that I "simply have to try" but I can't see paying $25 for a .5 oz bottle.

rayandbrit:The OCM rocks! Which oils do you use? My skin is freakishly dry so I use olive oil & vitamin e mostly. No snark meant at all, but be careful putting tea tree oil directly on your skin, it's very powerful & normally best if used with a carrier oil... Or you could add a couple drops to your face washing oil mix?
I use castor oil and sunflower seed oil. The sunflower seed is supposed to help with acne. I know it is, lol. I literally just put a drop on my finger and spread it all over my trouble zones. It works!
Bacon+lettuce+tomato:I switched to the oil cleansing method with a dab of tea tree oil at night on tough spots. Hormone acne is a biiatch.
I started this a month ago, with coconut oil, it's amazing!!!
sbartl:I've been putting coconut oil all over my face but after washing it with a gentle cleanser, are those of you doing the OCM not using any wash at all? Just the oil? How do you do it?

Yeah I only use oil. I wet my face with warm water, put some oil on my fingers and massage it in like you would a cleanser, rinse and pat dry. Easy peasy.
I just picked up some coconut oil today. I am going to start this!
