I tried this out for nearly two weeks. Initially I used 50/50 castor oil and coconut oil. My face instantly felt cleansed and moisturized. The texture was smooth and I could see the pores unclogging. However, within a few days, I started breaking out with cystic acne along my jawline. I thought it was just hormonal due to "that time of the month", but those normally clear up after day 1-2. These cysts kept popping up day and after. I stuck it out bc I have heard of a purging period some people go through. I switched my oil combo to sunflower/castor but was afraid that it would continue to get worse. It definitely takes some time and practice with the right oil combos and the right mixes (I.e. 50/50, 25/75, etc). Please do not be discouraged by my experience. Who knows I could be enjoying clear flawless skin by now if I had stuck it out. FYI I have oily skin, large pores, and moderate acne for over 16 years.
