I purchased for my teen son with acne issues in hopes that this will help clear it up for him.
CLEANSING BALM (2 oz)
Oil Cleansing Method fans know the power of “like dissolves like,” so we take this concept to the next level with our Tallow Cleansing Balm! Tallow is especially beneficial because of its bio-identical properties that closely match the oils on our own face. It makes sense then that tallow is the primary oil in this product. We infuse our Grassfed Tallow with organic flowers and lemon peel for a pleasing cleansing blend that’s perfect for all skin types. We add just enough organic sunflower oil to create an easy-to-use consistency.
Directions: Use a clean finger, 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.
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.
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.
