bitched about addressed the issue of having to deal with extremely dry, uncomfortable skin here a few times, but seriously, this year it is out of control. I decided, for some reason still not truly clear to me, to go back to school this fall. That has meant sitting in classrooms containing air possibly from 1970, with no windows in sight and massive amounts of dry heat coming from air ducts that have likely not been cleaned since 1970.
Now I am grossed out.
Anyway, a friend suggested that I try Deep Cleansing Oil by DHC, a brand that I had not really ever considered, or heard a lot about. Having grown up with very oily skin (oh, those were the days...), the idea of rubbing oil all over my face in order to clean it freaked me out. I was convinced that my face would immediately rebel, break out, maybe fall off, I dunno...
But no. This product is saving my life right now. Okay, dramatic, but it is saving my skin. I had become so dry that it was taking a handful of moisturizer immediately prior to foundation to get it to go on without cracking. After a few weeks of using Deep Cleansing Oil I am happy to say I am crack-free.
The cleanser contains olive fruit and rosemary leaf oil. It has a very light, pleasant oder. You can apply it directly to your face dry, which is best for removing makeup, or use a tiny bit of water with it to create a foam. I apply about a quarter-sized amount dry and then wet my Clarisonic, run that over my face and rinse. Unless I have doused myself in mascara, which does happen, this will remove all of my eye make up. If I am covered in liner and mascara (again, very likely), I apply a little of the oil to a cotton ball and massage my eyes with that first and then proceed with my normal cleansing routine.
Purchase the huge 6.7oz bottle - don't be chicken and go with the sad little one. You will not regret it. If nothing else this is an amazing eye-makeup remover, and at under $30 a steal. Before making a purchase of any kind online, always Google something like "product name coupon code" and check Retailmenot and other such sites for discount codes. DHC offers 20% off coupons fairly regularly.
