Has Anyone Used The Oil Cleansing Method?oily skin

On that site they suggest using extra virgin olive oil as the diluting oil with castor oil. I didn't follow this. Instead I used jojoba oil as my diluting oil since I know that one doesn't give me breakouts. I'm curious to know who else using the oil cleansing method and if you use olive oil for your dilution. Does it work better for you with olive oil vs another oil? The article states that olive oil really helps the castor oil to get into the pores. I'm not sure if jojoba does the same or if olive oil is truly the better choice.Thanks for any feedback!!

Another thing I should mention, I usually go into the sauna after I put the oil on my face. It helps to draw out all the impurities. Would the steam room be a better option? I think both of them opens up the pores and it's more of a matter of preference on what kind of heat works best for each person.

Personally, as someone with pretty oily skin I don't think ocm is a good idea to do everyday, especially if you're like me and have lazy skin that requires manual exfoliation everyday... Just a conclusion from my personal experience.
However, for moisturizing I do like to sometimes use a thin layer of Almond Oil on my face for 15 minutes, then simply wash it off with warm water. I find this oil to be very lightweight.

OCM does nothing for cystic acne. The oils dont go into your skin. OCM is wonderful for clogged pores and black/whiteheads. It draws all the gunk out, and then the topical (whatever you use) helps prevent the pore from infection.
4 times a week I make a mask of raw organic honey (it must be RAW), and cinnamon to help lock in moisture, plus honey is naturally antibacterial. makes the skin just GLOW! I absolutely LOVE the result. Just waiting for the prescriptions to help with the Cysts and I believe I'll have the skin I always dreamed of!!

Another thing I've decided to do since I'm tired of using benzoyl peroxide , I've created my own oil treatment of jojoba oil, lavender oil and tea tree oil and put it on my face to treat my breakouts. I'm finding that it helps with nearly no side effects like BP. BP always made me dry regardless of how little I used.

Hi, newbie here. I'm using OCM, have been for about 3 weeks - argan, jojoba and castor oil. Acne definitely not got worse. There was one point where I thought my skin was getting better, then I went on a blackhead eliminating binge and my skin was bad again If i can finally get some will power I've got high hopes for it.
