OCM is not shifting my foundation. Need something to use first.

I'm using jojoba and castor oil and my skin was looking fab until I started using the newish clinique moisture surge tinted moisturizer. It's great so I dont want to change to a different foundation but Ive started to break out and I've realized it's because OCM is not quite shifting the foundation.

Is there a very gentle make up remover I can use first that won't bugger about with my skin and strip it?

Dermalogica pre cleanse or liz earle cleanse and polish taken off with muslin.
I always double cleanse when wearing make up

Also have you seen the new first aid beauty range the cleanser has got great reviews I would still double cleanse. It was a sell out in the usa and it available at Boots google to read reviews and blogs.

I would not use Clinque moisturiser personally try to do without it ten days to see if you skin changes. I like active moist Dermalogica or Mama Mio mighty moisture.

Are you putting the oil on DRY skin and taking it off with a muslin cloth?

Liz Earle and Dermy precleanse are just expensive versions of the OCM though really - the suspension of fats in water (Liz Earle) and a lathery oil (Dermologica) - I've got both and I love them but one of the points of OCM is that you can do the hot cloth/pomade thing without £££ but get the skin benefits of an oil cleanse.

Have you tried just doing a double cleanse?

Aveeno cream works as well as Liz Earle imo.

thats weird as I used to use that foundation...........
yes, def apply to dry skin and remove with hot water and muslin - if need be, do it twice (as in, apply oil and remove oil twice)

Sorry for the delay in replying.

Yes I was putting the oil on dry skin and using a clean, damp muslin to remove. I'll try double cleansing and see if that works for me.

Thanks all.

I use same foundation and have no problem removing it.

ComradeJing Sat 06-Aug-11 15:00:28

What are you taking it off with ggirl?

Olive oil and hot muslin cloth or the cheap Boots version of Liz Earle cleanse and polish
