Let me save you the trouble and just let you in on a little secret: not all skin oils are created equally.
Face and body oils are kind of a thing right now.
Years ago I tried one of Shu Uemura's fandangle facial cleansing oils, expecting the many miracles so many magazine articles had promised.
I raced home with my new purchase. I carefully opened the box with glee - revelling in the anticipation. I turned on the shower and stepped in with a smile, delighted to be starting my new lifelong routine, which was no doubt set to transform me into an alabaster Goddess.
Minutes later, I stepped out of the shower and turned to face the mirror, with wide-eyed anticipation. I was ready to meet the new me! And there I was. Red. Blotchy. Horrible. A lubricated vermilion mess.
What. The. <beep>.
Defeated, I threw away my new purchase and vowed to the skin Gods to never again attempt using facial cleansing oils. Until now . . .
