The oil cleansing method is a much gentler way of cleaning your face. Often when using a harsh facial cleanser you are stripping your face of all the dirt and grime, but also of the natural oils your face produces throughout the day. This leaves your face so dry that your skin kind of freaks out and tries to produce more sebum/oil to help the dryness but usually produces too much oil, causing your skin to break out. With oil cleansing you are using fresh clean oil to clean your face. The Cleansing Oil pulls dirt, grime and old oil from the day and replaces it all while moisturising your face at the same time!
