EVOO good for salads AND make-up removal! Who knew?

So I pre-cleaned my make up brushes with EVOO last week and my dry winter face and I started thinking that maybe it would be a good make-up remover.

Its amazing! It takes very little effort to completely (and gently) remove all my make-up and my skin feels so moisturized and supple afterwards. Plus it doesn't leave my face feeling "stripped" after I wash it.

Has anyone else done this? Is it a set up for breakouts?

Thanks,

There's actually the Oil Cleansing Method that is just this, cleaning your face with oil. People have different blends that they use too.
It's a good method!

Cold pressed virgin olive oil is suppose to be the closest thing to your natural skin oil. I have had it reccomended for my hair whe I wear it curly (just a little.) Probably not a bad option for cold weather. Make sure you remove an excess.
