How to Clean your Face with Oil

It sounds pretty counter-productive doesn't it? I have been trying to be more focused on saving money, creating less waste and living a little more green. Now, I made my own homemade laundry soap even though Jeff said it wouldn't save us that much money. I have always had sensitive skin and have been unable to use alot of different products without breaking out in a rash or developing welts. This was no exception.

I bought all the stuff and spent the afternoon cleaning buckets to store my homemade laundry soap in, while my concoction was cooking and resting. It was a fairly easy process and made ALOT of soap. I was determined to use all of it before we decided whether it was worth it or not. Well, about 6 loads later my skin decided for me. Rashes, welts and really itchy spots developed and all my hardwork and good intentions went down the drain, literally!!

So in purusing the internet for new ideas I found this website (most mom sites are the best since they have lots of reasons to save extra money). An interestng concept, but again my skin is very fickle and doesn't like change.

Anybody use this cleansing process or interested in trying?

I'm behind the times here, but I've started using it and I am quite happy so far.
