You Down With OCM?

The Oil Cleansing Method (OCM) is apparently the new craze in the world of skin care. This method involves using castor oil (25%) and olive oil (75%) to cleanse and moisturize, leaving the skin with an enviable glow.

I had high hopes for this here OCM. I doused my face with the so-called miracle concoction and low and behold, within a week, all HELL broke loose on my face! WTF man! The oil dried out my skin and created acne in places it never existed before. I tried experimenting with the oil percentages, but it was all to no avail. Argggh! What a bummer! I did notice a nice glow to my skin, but the extra bump action I can definitely do without. Needless to say, I am no longer down with OCM! Despite my experience, it seems there are many who've had better luck with this. Peep the Youtube vid demonstrating the OCM.

Very interesting to see a post on this. I just slathered my face in olive oil before I went to bed the other night! LOL.
