Yep, like everything else, skincare can take trial and error to find what's right for each of us.

I've been using a mixture of jojoba, sunflower, safflower, and hemp seed oils to cleanse my face for years now and it's been fantastic. I didn't like the 'feel' of castor oil, tho it didn't break me out.

Cleansing my face with oils and cleansing my hair with conditioner - they both sound weird but wow am I glad I came across those 2 ideas here! : )
