Glossit: Cleansing Oil - Oily / Acne Prone
Glossit: Cleansing Oil - Oily / Acne Prone
Did we just see you raise a brow? Oil + Cleanser, that’s like, an oxymoron, right? Actually, no!
We’ve been taught to avoid the word oil or the use of it regarding cleansing our entire lives. We’re here to tell you that this belief is a big mistake. Oil & water are not besties! We’ve known that our entire lives too. You’ve seen it in parking lots after rain fall, boats leaking oil into the lake, jumping in the pool with tanning oil on. Oil just sits on top of that water, never being dissolved. Like attracts like which is good when you’re talking about facial cleansing.
Our premium organic oil cleansers were created with all of that and more in mind. Each oil that is placed into every bottle of Glossit is specifically known to produce an unclogging effect, dissolving all the excess sebum, makeup and oils that have settled into your pores. When properly applied to the neck and face, these oils start to dissolve these and other impurities from your pores. Once cleansed & then rinsed all you see is deliciously dewy, super-hydrated skin. All you feel is soft and clean.

Heat a clean rag in semi-hot water. You want to make sure to use hot water but be careful to not burn yourself. Just enough heat to open the pores. Wring out your rag & place it on face, pressing firmly, for about 30 seconds. This will help open your pores which will help the oil get in deep and dissolve oil & dirt. Pump 1 - 2 pumps of oil into the palm of your hand, briefly rub together with your opposing hand & press the oil gently into the surface of your skin. Add additonal pump of oil if cleansing neck. Start to gently massage the oils into your skin in an upward/outward & circular motion. Let the oil absorb into your skin for another 30 seconds. Heat your clean rag under hot water again under semi-hot water. Wring the water out once more & in the same gentle, upward motion, remove the oils from your skin. Rinse your rag once more & sweep the rag over the face once more to remove any residual oils. Follow up with a good toner.

Castor Oil – This dirt dissolving buster cleanses the pores and removes makeup…ALL OF IT! However, there are rules to using this oil. Moderation (yep, just like everything else). Castor oil can be drying so each oil blend is different and how much of this oil is used in each formula varies depending on type of skin. Another factor here is specific combination per skin type. All of the ingredients used in our oil cleansers will prove to be the best combination with your skin type in mind.

Grapeseed oil prevents moisture loss and has anti-oxidant and antimicrobial actions. This is a bonus for those of us who are prone to acne related stresses.
Aloe Vera – Aloe vera can treat and prevent minor infections of the skin. It also promotes new skin cell growth, minimizes scarring, reduces fine lines and wrinkles and is very hydrating. It also helps remove dirt & makeup without having to tug at the skin to do get the job done.

This oil is non-clogging and has the same absorption properties that are similar to our skin’s own sebum. Its use can adjust the skin’s sebum production by balancing like with like making it very compatible with skin.
Argan Oil - Argania spinosa – Pimples & acne don’t stand a chance against argan oil. Neither does overly oily skin.
