FACE CLEANSER

Why we love and highly recommend 100% Natural Oil Cleansing

Natural Oil Cleanser, Face Wash and Makeup Remover

 

The secret of healthy looking, glowing skin begins with a great cleansing routine.

No wonder traditional cosmetic industry invents new trends and products every now and then to stimulate buying behaviors: traditional cleansers, oil cleansers, double cleansers, micellar waters, soapy waters. Many of them are packed with nasty chemicals, preservatives, emulsifiers and lathering agents (surfactants).   

Those cleansers have one thing in common: they strip the oil from your face and your body desperately tries to repair itself by producing excess oil. 

That often disrupts the microbiome of your skin, causes irritation, excessive dryness and most often the dreaded shiny appearance of the skin that leads to blocked pores and may cause acne breakouts and other skin problems.

Whilst there are definitely different other reasons that can contribute to excess sebum e.g. hormones, stress, diet  etc, we can tell for sure that the chemical packed cleansing routine is an important factor in sebum overproduction. And luckily, it is also the easiest one to correct.

Read more: Traditional Cleansers can irritate your skin, cause excessive dryness, exacerbate acne (Source), and ultimately lead your skin to produce more oil after washing.

What is 100% Natural Oil Cleansing?

 

Many people wonder what is the best cleansing method or the best cleansing oil? 

We believe it is getting back to the simple, proven concepts and sticking to the natural basics, without adding fancy, totally unnecessary and often dangerous additives, detergents, foaming agents etc.

It is relying on the well-known concept that oil dissolves oil.

100% Natural Oil Cleansing is simply about cleansing solely with 100% natural oils thus naturally balancing the skin’s sebum production. 

The basic concept of the Natural Oil Cleansing Method is that the oil used to clean your skin will dissolve the oil hardened with makeup, impurities and stuck in your pores.

The steam will open your pores, allowing the oil to be easily removed.

 

Try Oil Cleansing method at Home with Kitchen Ingredients

 

You can easily try the Oil cleansing method with e.g. Cold pressed, unrefined Coconut Oil.

We love Coconut Oil, because it is natural anti-bacterial and anti-viral that makes it a good start to experience a real 100% natural oil cleansing.

Just follow the same steps as we decribed a bit further in text.

  

Oh Lou Lou! Velvety Oil Cleanser, Face Wash & Make Up Remover (2-in-1)

 

Our Velvety Sensitive Oil Cleanser is our best-selling product, elaborated with synergy of carefully chosen plant-based oils Calendula, Jojoba, Sweet Almond & Lavender Oil, especially chosen to soothe and nourish sensitive skin while maintaining the sebum production on its optimum level.

Velvety Sensitive is a beautiful blend of soothing and nourishing oils that will

   1)    Deeply clean, clean out clogged pores and lift excess sebum (the oily substance on your skin) and

   2)    Remove dead skin, pollutants, and makeup

   3)    Calm & and nourish it with skin loving oils and feed it the natural Vitamin E.

The most important is that it will also keep your skin from over-compensating in oil production, in another words, keep in balance your sebum production.

How to Use Our Facial Oil Cleanser 

 

  1. Put few drops of oil wash in your palm and spread it over your face and neck.
  2. Massage your face and neck couple of minutes allowing the oils to penetrate the skin and start dissolving oils, impurities, makeup. 
  3. Take a small towel and run it under a warm water (as warm as you can bear it without burning yourself). Cover the entire face and wait until the steam does its work for two-three of minutes. The pores are now open and ready to be deeply cleaned. 
  4. Wipe off the face gently with the towel and repeat once more if needed. Do not overdo it, rather make sure you leave a thin protective layer of oil.
  5. Nourish with a Cream or Face Oil and tone with Hydrosol per-usual.

Enjoy your silky, softened and beautifully hydrated skin :)

I had contacted Oh Lou Lou! a while ago because my skin was in bad shape. They had asked me so many questions, I had never experienced that before. Later that evening I received a very long email about what I can do with tips and which products e.g Sensitive Cleanser oil and others they recommended. I bought the products and they had written me a step-by-step plan on how to do my ritual. The day after I used my products, my rash on my forehead was as good as gone. My redness was gone. It didn't believe it. They  gave me so good and a lot advice. Miracles in a bottle.

 

How often should you oil cleanse?

It’s best to oil cleanse only once a day in the evening before going to bed.

Oil cleanse before or after showering?

Give your face a good massage with cleansing oil before you get in the shower. While you're in the shower, the steam will open up your pores. Towards the end of the shower, rinse all of the oil off of your face! Then, nourish and tone per-usual. 

Adjustment period

It is normal for it to take a week or so for skin to adjust, and you may even see more oily skin or more breakouts during this time as impurities leave the skin. If you can, resist the urge to use soaps or other cleansers during this time, as it will make the adjustment period take longer.

The bottom line

Want to change up the way you wash your face? The 100% natural oil cleansing method with Velvety Oils is something that may revolutionize  the way you take care of your skin.

 

WHAT SOME OF OUR CLIENTS SAY

 

SKIN IS SO SOFT AND CALM

Emilie C, Antwerp

A very good cleanser. It is super soft and smells good with the Lavender. First I was a bit afraid for a reaction because of the essential oil and also because it is an oil cleanser. My skin was before I used this product, red, dry spots, i had bumps around my forehead, after the first use the bumps on my forehead were much less. My skin is so soft and hydrated, nourished. Thank you Oh Lou Lou!  for all the good advice and making these beautiful products!

 

Catherine CBrussels

Depuis que j’ai découvert ces produits, c’est devenu un vrai moment de détente. Voici les étapes du petit rituel auquel je m’adonne tous les soirs depuis le confinement. D’abord, je verse quelques gouttes d’huile dans la paume de ma main pour ensuite l’étaler sur l’ensemble de mon visage et cou. Puis doucement, je masse la peau de mon visage pendant au moins une minute en insistant sur les zones maquillées. J’attrape ensuite la petite serviette en bambou et la passe sous une eau très chaude (attention tout de même à ne pas vous brûler). Puis comme au resto chinois, je la pose sur mon visage et là… bonheur, nirvana, appelez ça comme vous le voulez mais pour moi c’est vraiment l’extase ! Après quelques minutes, quand la vapeur a fait son effet, je nettoie ma peau minutieusement à l’aide de la serviette, en insistant sur les yeux pour bien les démaquiller. Et la magie opère: mon visage est complètement nettoyé de tous les résidus de maquillage. Ma peau est nette et hydratée par l’huile, mon visage est doux et détendu. Son odeur est divine. Et la serviette chaude, l’apothéose !..."

I love all the products! I have very sensitive and reddish skin. The sensitive cleaning oil has helped me a lot.
