What is Facial Cleansing Oil?

We've been taught all our lives that you need a face wash that will rid your skin of oils, and if you have oily or acne prone skin, you've probably been checking the fine print to make sure everything on your face is oil free. Turns out, we've been doing it all wrong. Oil free cleansers strip our skin of their natural oils and you naturally start producing excess oil in an effort to rebalance.

Enter Leaves of Trees Facial Cleansing Oil:


"Washing" your face with an oil might sound counterintuitive but it comes down to a very basic principle of chemistry: like dissolves like. Facial Cleansing Oil gently cleanses your skin by dissolving natural oils and allowing removal of impurities, without stripping it of its vital oils or causing irritation. Have oily skin? use cleansing oil. Have dry skin? use cleansing oil. Have normal or combination skin? use cleansing oil. 

Here's how to do it:

  1. Put about a nickel's worth of oil on your palms and rub it all over your (dry) face
  2. Gently massage it into your skin (lips too!) for about two minutes
  3. soak a washcloth in hot water and apply to your face for 15 seconds to steam
  4. use the hot washcloth to gently wipe off the oil from your skin *do not use a hot washcloth if you have very sensitive skin or if you have rosacea.
