I've been using OCM for a long time now and still love it. I only use it 1 or 2 nights a week now and no longer use any caster oil. I use a mixture of some of these - jojoba, hempseed, sunflower, safflower oil. No set amounts, just pour some of each into a little plastic bottle that I keep in the bathroom. The other nights of the week I use a gentle cleanser from Burts Bees or Serious Skin Care.
This has really made a difference in my pores and I no longer get the painful cysts I used to get.
