The Oil Cleansing Method and why it'll change your skin forever!

The Oil Cleansing Method - you may or may not have heard about it before. I personally, have been raving about it for years. I've written blogs about it  and have even filmed a video about oil cleansing.  Picture by Elise Gow Photograhy I started my love affair with oil after using cleansing oils during my time in a skin clinic. They were oils, yes- but highly deodorised and filled with chemicals. So when I switched to a true, pure oil (after much research mind you) I was unsure of the results.  Sweet Almond Oil was the first oil I ever used to cleanse with.

I remember the first time I wore a bright lip. It was this over-the-top coral that I teamed with my bleached blonde hair and a black shirt dress.  It was almost ten years ago, so I can forgive the bad hair and outift... but that lipstick CHANGED. MY. LIFE. Now, it wasn't the product (I can only imagine the ingredients) but it was the confidence that the lipstick gave me. I felt sparkly, alive, bright, and ready to take on the world.
