Hi Tom,
I know CM and others have advocated using oil cleansing to clean the face and keep the face's ph balanced. Is there a particular oil cleansing product that is more popular than others?
Trader Joe's has a facial wash that has tea tree oil and awapuhi in it.

What is your facial cleansing routine?

Did I post this question in the wrong thread?

Tom R:

Many people have given positive testimonials for Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser. Even though it contains a small amount of sodium lauryl sulfate (less than 1%) there is really no potential for irritation. It costs under $9 for 16 ounces.

Cetaphil also has a product for normal to oily skin - also inexpensive. This one contains fragrance. I usually don't like products with fragrance.

Thanks Tom I'll have to give that a try.
There are so many cleansers on the market these days that will make your head spin and I've heard mention of oil cleansing, thats why I wondered which was best.

Hi Tom:

If you're uneasy about using the oils mostly used (Castor oil and extra virgin olive oil), and are more comfortable with a commercial product, DHC have a deep cleansing oil that seems to be quite popular. You can see it at this link: http://www.dhccare.com/DHC/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductID=300&Catalog=dhc+usa

CM,
I've been looking for an oil cleanser that doesn't leave my face feeling real dry. Trader Joe's has one with tea tree oil I've been using and I usually have to apply a moisturizer afterwards. Its time for a switch.
Thanks for the suggestion.
