This is a lovely product. The scent is lovely. It would be nice if it was a little more pliable at low temperature so it would be easier to apply to skin without having to microwave. I like that the container is glass so you could microwave or heat safely.
CLEANSING BALM (2 oz)
Directions: It's important to use clean, dry hands to avoid introducing microbes into your cleansing balm. Use a spoon or small spatula to scoop out a quarter sized amount of cleansing balm and massage into skin with gentle, circular strokes. Wet a soft cloth with hot, steamy water and lay it over face. Relax and allow the cloth to cool completely. Gently wipe away the oil, being careful not to scrub. Rinse the cloth with more steamy water and place over face again until cool. Gently wipe again and repeat until oil is removed. Your face should feel soft and moisturized. Follow with one of our Tallow Face Balms if desired or simply allow your skin to rest.

About The Oil Cleansing Method
Dirt, pollution, and other impurities trapped in the pores contribute to acne, inflammation, and glycation (wrinkling). Contrary to popular belief, oil is necessary for skin health and can dissolve and dislodge these impurities when applied using the Oil Cleansing Method. Doing so is a relaxing way to restore skin's optimal barrier function and glow. Suggested use is one to three times per week.
I'm new to the OCM but this was a perfect way to dive in. The cleansing balm is smooth and creamy but not thick and tacky. It leaves you clean as well as moisturized. I now even enjoy sitting there for a minute with the hot towel on my face and letting my day fall away.
