Removing Makeup with Oil

If you’ve wondered how to use a cleansing oil to remove your makeup, look no further.  I have a great tutorial for you that shows you exactly how to do it.

I love my cleansing oil from Tatcha.  It leaves my face feeling so soft and supple.  Not to mention just smelling great.

Dr. Song Acne Wash


My teenage daughter has pretty bad acne. I had her try this for a few days. Here is what she said from Oct 1:

“The Dr Song acne facial wash seems to be doing okay. I’ve only been using it for a couple of days, so I don’t see a big difference from the benzoyl peroxide I’ve been using.

As I kind of expected, the wash is drying out my skin. It was visibly dry and felt quite dry too. A quick facial scrub helped to get it under control.

The only thing I dislike is the smell. It’s very faint, but displeasing. As it doesn’t linger past the first few seconds, it isn’t too bad.

So far, it’s been a good product. I’d probably buy it again.”

Her usual routine is benzoyl peroxide twice a day, every day. (If you have very bad acne and are trying to clear it up, I recommend watching Wayne Goss on Youtube and about clearing up acne. It really WORKS.) As long as she uses it every single day, twice a day, her acne isn’t that bad. But if she cuts back or runs out, it comes back in full force.

It sounds like this wash does exactly the same thing as the cream/lotion does.

And now almost two months later:

“If I constantly use it, (no forgetting, no skipping and just applying benzoyl peroxide) it’s working fine. I’m able up keep it at bay.”
