Smells amazing and feels wonderful. The included washcloth is really effective as well. IF you're used to more liquids oil cleansers it takes some adjustment, but feels really luxuriant. Within a week, my skin looked so much nicer, way fewer blackheads, and breakouts.

(Wood spoon and microfiber cloth included.) 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 a small amount of hydrogenated castor oil to create a solubilizing effect. This means that this balm rinses away quicker and more cleanly, making the Oil Cleansing ritual a more user-friendly process for the less patient.
Directions: Use spoon to scoop out a quarter sized amount of Cleansing Balm and massage with clean fingers onto skin with circular strokes. Wet the microfiber cloth (included in kit) with hot, steamy water and lay it over face. Relax and allow the cloth to cool. Wet the cloth again and wipe away the oil, taking care not to scrub. Your face will be left soft and moisturized. No need to follow with anything at all -- 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 during the Oil Cleansing Method. Doing so is a relaxing way to restore skin's optimal barrier function and glow.
This is by far the best cleanser I have ever used in my life! I have only skin that is prone to hormonal acne. This has been a wonderful addition to the tallow I use to moisturize my face. My skin has never looked better and has even chased away breakouts. It leaves you looking smooth and a nice glow. Ill never use any other cleanser!
I literally got comments on my face glowing the day after I used this, and now I have my partner convinced to try it! Laying with the warm towel was a super relaxing and wonderful experience. Would definitely (and have already) recommend!
I'm not about using cleansers with ingredients I can't pronounce, so I was so excited to find this company and to try out this cleansing balm. Using it is such a nice experience- it rubs in smoothly to the skin and removes dirt and impurities, and when you wipe it off it leaves the skin moisturized. Highly recommend.
I purchased for my teen son with acne issues in hopes that this will help clear it up for him.
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.
