Now that the temps have dropped below freezing….it’s time to switch up your skincare routine. I always add some extra moisture to my routine when it gets cold, a great way to do that is by using an oil based cleanser. I just tried Kimberly Parry Organics Cleansing Oil [$52] which does a fantastic job of OBLITERATING all traces of makeup (including waterproof mascara) and conditioning your skin.
We marry the healing traditions and herbal wisdom of the Native American, European, Asian and African traditions, along with modern scientific understanding of the skin and principles of anti-aging. -Kimberly Parry Organics
Don’t be afraid of using oil to cleanse your skin!! Even if you are oily you can benefit from using the oil method. I am a dedicated oil cleanser, even in the summertime just because it gets your skin so clean. Also…if you have acne or texture in your skin from acne scarring, oil can be VERY beneficial for you as it removes all traces of makeup from your face from all crevices. The oil will replenish and balance the skin. cleanse your pores of dirt and bacteria while replacing the dirty oil with nutritious oils that heal and protect your skin.

To use, massage a small amount into damp skin (I also used my dampened hands and rubbed together to emulsify). I rubbed into my face and I could actually feel the mascara breaking down. I grabbed a face towel that I soaked in hot water and every trace of makeup slid off my face! You can also use this with a cotton pad if you want just a straight makeup remover. All of this in a certified organic product? Fabulous…..
