Oil Cleansing Method Questions

I've been doing the oil cleansing method for about 2 months now. My skin is still getting better and better although I have continued to get some hormonal break outs around my mouth.

Did your skin just get better and better? Are you 100% happy with your skin now? Is it better than it has ever been? (I'd say no not 100% happy but yes better than ever.)

Also have you tried different oils and have you noticed a difference between which oil you use? I'm using jojoba and castor oil atm.

What skin type are you Comradejing. I was doing this but stopped. Think I will start again as skin so dry atm.

Normal to oily I suppose. I have blackheads on my nose which are actually shrinking for the first time ever. Amazing given the number of creams I have tried over the years. I'm also plagued by the odd hormone spot around my mouth/chin. I sometimes get a dry patch on one cheek (rarely - it's flaring up under the air-con ATM). The texture is the worst of it I guess... my skin is bumpy, not smooth at all, especially around the mouth.

God, I sound like an absolute beauty don't I!

The annoying thing is that I feel like I have good skin underneath the blackheads and hormone spots so if only that would clear up! In reality my skin isn't that bad. It's nothing that a hint of tinted moisturiser can't cover but I'm determined to make it better!

I'm really interested!

Sorry, ComradJing I realise you are on that thread giving advice but in particular read otchayaniye's post and you could actually stalk advance search her as the Oil Cleansing guru (and curly girl guru and 40's glamour guru)
