Hi Lynn,
Depending on the brand of olive oil used results may vary. However, this is intended to be a very hydrating - tho exfoliating- technique which I use only in the dry winter months as it would be too heavy for my skin type (oily) any other time of the year. After rinsing off with warm water I pat my face dry gently with a soft, clean towel, absorbing any excess oil. I often use this exfoliating wash before bed prior to applying topical treatments which might otherwise irritate my skin if not for the moisturizing EVOO barrier. I don't personally wash my face again with another cleanser after the EVOO face wash.

Another great oil to try, which is a little lighter, is Extra Virgin Coconut Oil which I DO use year round. It's anti-bacterial/viral/fungal so it won't clog pores or cause breakouts. It's excellent for conditioning the skin- full of antioxidants. Conversely, I don't use coconut oil as my body moisturizer like many people do, because I don't find it moisturizing enough for my body- however, as I said, I love it for my face. If you find the olive oil is too heavy for you- you may want to give the coconut oil a try.

Thank you for your question, Lynn. Hope you're having a wonderful weekend:-)

Much love,
Juliane

i tried this last night, and found that after rinsing it off, it still left a lot of the oil on my face. is this normal? or should i be washing my face afterwards with my regular soap to get off all of the olive oil? thanks!

Kenny, Thank you for your comment. I used it this morning- perfect for the winter, leaves my skin so soft and smooth. Look forward to "seeing" you again soon here at StyleNectar! All the best to you:-) ~juliane

This is great! I just finished experimented with a mixture of baking soda, water, and a few drops of essential oils but found that it still dried my face out a bit! This is right up my alley!
