You wash your face with what???

For some strange reason, my the topic of skincare has come up several times lately...at work as well as with friends. Most people are surprised to learn I have been using oil to clean my skin. I'm really not "crunchy", but I read about the Oil Cleansing Method online and was intrigued.  I initially tried it with an olive oil and Castor Oil blend, but recently switched to a Castor Oil and Grape Seed Oil blend and think I like it better. I mix it up in advance and keep it in a Squeeze Bottle and it lasts for a while. I don't think I'm following it down to the letter, but I love what I'm doing.  I basically heat up my water while rubbing the oil all over my face.  I then take a washcloth and run it under the hot water and put it on my face until it cools down.  I wipe off the residue with the same washcloth and go on about my merry way...it is so awesome and feels like a mini facial when I'm done.

P.S.  If you want to do it the "right" way or get tips about other oil combinations, be sure to check out the post I originally referenced.
