I just started this method yesterday. I am using castor and jojoba oil.
I really have high hopes for this. My skin has been so congested for the past 6 months and I have no idea why. I have always been acne prone (all types of acne, even cysts) with very oily skin. I have tried almost everything. Long term BP usage has wreaked havoc on my skin (a fact I just realized last year) leading to premature fine lines. bhas/ahas don't seem to be doing the job anymore, either.
My first OCM wash went amazing. My pores felt open and my skin did have a glow about it. Unfortunately, no 'plugs' came out. But I suppose since they have been embedded there for years (and years) they will take a while to release. No tightness, no itching. I did the OCM at night and when I woke in the morning, I wasn't as oily usual.
dense, very fine, high porosity, poor elasticity
