AT A GLANCE
★Light Botanical Oils help gently break down makeup and grime from your day without stripping.
★This formula is perfectly balanced for all skin types.
★Makeup Removal and Cleansing in one step
★Vegan Wax helps minimize risk of spills by keeping this balm solid.
This is a true Oil Cleansing Method Balm, there is no emulsifier to make this rinse clean. Organic Hemp Seed Oil is perfectly light, and leaves skin soft when removed!
There is a ton of info below, but the short version : Massage the balm into dry skin for 1-5 minutes, remove. TADA! The longer you massage, the more time the oils have to open your pores, encourage lymphatic drainage, and thin sebum. Because you aren't stripping your skin, you don't HAVE to follow with anything else, if you don't want to. Honestly, this is my favorite way to cleanse, because I don't always feel up to a ten minute routine, and with this, I know my skin is clean and moisturized.
Bear's Beauty products are not made for specific skin types, but for specific skin issues and concerns. I formulate every product with truly sensitive skin in mind.

🌿WHAT IS AN OIL CLEANSER & WHO NEEDS ONE
An oil cleanser is an oil you wash your face with; by massaging the oil into your dry face and then removing. One step removes makeup and cleanses or just cleanses if you don't wear makeup.
Many of the "oil cleansers" offered on the market today are made with cheap petroleum derivatives and emulsifiers so they rinse clean (defeating the entire purpose of using oil in the first place.)
Cleansing is the most important step in your routine and the root of most skin issues is an imbalance in this step. Oil Cleansing is a nurturing and nourishing approach to cleansing.
I have taken all the guesswork out of oil cleansing with blends that are meant for all skin types, but especially the most sensitive. No matter what formula you choose, you can be assured that it won't clog your pores or leave you a greasy mess.
If you ever wash your face and find yourself rushing for moisturizer, you need an oil cleanser.
If you are an oil slick by noon, you need an oil cleanser.
This one bottle can be your only skin care product. Once you remove the oil you use to cleanse, you can gently pat a few drops of cleansing oil into damp skin.
🌿HOW DOES THIS COMPARE WITH OTHER BEAR'S BEAUTY PRODUCTS? WHICH IS RIGHT FOR ME?
Bear's Beauty Cleansing Oils are made to be used interchangeably as your skin changes with seasons, hormones, or just as it heals from years of commercial chemical skin care.When choosing a cleansing oil, do so based on the most prevalent skin concern or just what sounds groovy ;) I use Organic Oils + Herbs + Essential Oils in all formulas, wherever possible.
This is very similar to the ACNE + SENSITIVE CLEANSING OIL, and is ideal for sensitive and Acne-prone skin as well as Dry and Oily.
DETOXIFYING CLEANSING OIL - (Hemp + MCT Oil + Safflower + Raspberry + Charcoal + Geranium) This unique cleansing oil is designed to gentle encourage your skin's own detoxification process. Great for all skin types. I love using this once a week, even after the first few months. This comes with Geranium Essential Oil or Without (NAKED.)
BALANCING CLEANSING OIL - ( Hemp + Sunflower + Sea Buckthorn + Calendula + Green Tea ) Ideal for all skin types. Hemp is rich in Linoleic Acid, a type of fatty acid that thins thick sebum (the oil your skin produces.) Sunflower + Calendula nourish while Green Tea provides antioxidant protection. Organic Sea Buckthorn, with more than 80 bio-active compounds, regenerates and helps even the appearance of uneven tone. Rich in Beta-Carotene, Sea Buckthorn gives this cleansing oil a rich golden tint. You can choose from several scents with this formula.
CONGESTED PORE CLEANSING OIL - (Hemp + Watermelon Seed Oil + Congested Pore Essential Oil Blend) This is great if you have a lot of congested pores that never come to the surface. This goes really well alternated with the DETOXIFYING CLEANSING Oil. This comes with the set essential oil blend and cannot be customized.
ACNE + SENSITIVE CLEANSING OIL - Hemp is rich in Linoleic Acid, a type of fatty acid that thins thick sebum (the oil your skin produces.) This is the most cleansing and gentle formula that I offer. Great for acne + clogged pores + excess oil + redness + sensitivity + and anyone on the oily side. You can choose from several scents with this formula.
TIMELESS CLEANSING OIL - (Hemp + Maracuja + Rosehip + Pumpkin + Calendula + Green Tea + Turmeric + Sea Buckthorn + Frankincense + Myrrh + Helichrysum) This is my favorite cleansing oil for post -acne, early to advanced signs of aging, and just generally lack-luster skin. Organic Maracuja is a rarity on the market, and especially when it comes to cleansers. Rich in Linoleic Acid to help balance oil production, but intensely repairative and anti-aging, Maracuja has it all.
REDNESS CLEANSING OIL - (Hemp + Sunflower + Pumpkin Seed + Marshmallow Root + Gluten-Free Colloidal Oats + Chamomile + Yarrow + Lavender)
The coolest part is that your skin will change. If you have always had oily skin, chances are a few months into the OCM you will find your skin strangely matte. As your skin changes, you can adjust your cleanser to suit without throwing off your routine, because you will still use an oil. cleanser. I offer a range of Cleansing Balms and Cold Creams, as well as Cream and Clay Cleansers ... even a gentle foaming face wash. No matter how your skin is behaving, Bear's Beauty has a simple solution.

🌿USEFUL LINKS + INFO
Have you ever used oil to remove sticker residue from a bottle or gunk from your hardwood floor? This is the same idea. Oil breaks down grime and clogged pores and then takes it along when it is wiped off, leaving your skin soft and smooth, never oily. Oil dissolves oil, and these botanical cleansing oils leave your skin glowing.
The most basic routine, and how you will start :
1. Open jar and scoop balm with dry hands. I suggest starting with a pea-size amount.
2. Warm between dry fingertips.
3. Massage oil into face, focusing on hollows of face and trouble areas.
4. Continue massaging 1-5 minutes with dry hands using gentle pressure.
5. I wipe the excess oil off my hands at this point with the face cloth I am going to use to remove the oil. You can also use tissue or just wash your hands (with good Organic or Castile Soap) - You don't have to do this, I just don't like having oil on my hands.
6. Get your cloth damp with warm, but not hot water. Hot water can actually cause more damage to your skin and broken capillaries. Place the cloth over your face and inhale deeply. NOTE : For gentler removal, leave the cloth dry.
7. Gently wipe away the excess oil and then rinse the cloth and continue gently removing the oil.
8. Once the oil is removed, your skin should feel clean. Do not leave oil on your skin.
9. You can stop here. You can just mist your skin with Hydrosol. You can do toner, serum, and moisturizer.
👉👉👉👉Before you say, "Jerra, you said it was easy!" - Massage the oil into your dirty face with dry hands, use gentle pressure, do your eyes last, remove with the cloth I sent you, and smile :)
👉Start Here if you are brand new to the OCM, or just want a little more info
👉Can I use my sonic face brush?
👉Troubleshooting the OCM + Dealing with Tiny Bumps + Texture
Pick up a pack of microfiber face cloths as well, I have 8 that I hand-wash with Castile soap once a week. They help remove the oil, can be used wet or dry, and leave your skin lightly exfoliated.
All Oil Cleansers now come with one Microfiber Cloth, I feel that of all the things I have tried over the last few years, microfiber cloths are the most effective + offer gentle exfoliation + leave your skin clean without the need for water or a second cleanse. (Cloth pictured above is green, but you will get a random color.)

You may have seen some other cleansing oils that use Castor Oil, not here! I find Castor oil to be pore-clogging and drying. Enter Hemp :)
★Organic Hemp Seed Oil started it all; this amazing oil is considered a “dry” oil, so it never feels thick or greasy, just silky + smooth. The science is in the Linoleic Acid, a form of fatty acid that actually softens the clogs in your pores and encourages healthy + balanced oil production. No matter what your skin type, the Oil Cleansing Method (OCM) will change the way you feel about your skin + think about oil … forever.
★Candelilla Wax is a vegan wax that has a very light texture and keeps the oil from melting.
PRODUCT SIZE INFO

*^Hemp Seed Oil, Candelilla Wax, *Sunflower Oil, *Rosemary Antioxidant, and Essential Oils
Please do not feel boxed in by "skin type." Skin Type is, in my opinion, very fluid. Your skin is reactive. If you have been using a commercial face wash that strips your skin, you may think you have "Oily" skin, but within a few weeks of using an Oil Cleanser, you will find your skin was just over producing oil to account for the oil being stripped. Choose an essential oil blend that you like. There is no blend below that will be a detriment to any skin type.

🌼*Tamanu + *Manuka = Redness + Acne + Acne Scarring + Irritation + Dryness (Sweet Earthy Scent)
You initially want to use the OCM once per day, ideally in the evening. This does not mean that you can't use it more than once a day. Skin care is very personal, and your skin will change with age, weather, and hormones ... so be open to changing your routine with your skin. For example, in the winter I love to do a light oil cleanse in the AM and then jump in the show and follow with a scrub. At night I will do a deep (10 minute) oil cleanse and then remove with a damp cloth.
🌟 🌟 Easy Oil Cleansing - No cloth required - I use this method, especially when getting in the shower.
1. Massage quarter size (10 - 20 pumps from 1 oz or 2 oz bottle) pool of oil into dry face. Focus on areas like the crevice of your nose and chin that have texture. Massage for 3-5 minutes.
2. Use my foaming face wash, pump 5-10 pumps into palm and massage right into cleansing oil on your face. Avoiding eye area.
3. Rinse and follow with Toner + Serum + Moisturizer as needed. If your skin still feels oily, you can repeat step 2 or just use toner to remove excess.
🌟 🌟 Other Oil Cleansing Methods
1. Quick Oil Cleansing - Great for those who don't wear makeup or for morning cleansing. Massage a dime size pool of oil between palms to warm. Massage into dry face and neck in circular motions for 2-5 minutes. Remove with dry or damp microfiber cloth. No need to follow with anything else.
2. Deep Oil Cleansing - This is one of my favorite ways to use cleansing oil. Pump a dime to quarter size pool of oil into hands. Massage into dry face and neck. massage using gentle pressure in circular motions, focusing on congested areas. Massage for 5-10 minutes. I typically do this while watching TV. Let the oil sit on your skin for a few minutes. Remove oil with dry or damp cloth. You can choose to follow with a mask to help remove clogged pores that have been softened with the cleansing oil. OR follow with toner + serum + moisturizer of your choice. I typically do a deep cleanse 2-3 times per week.
3. Double Cleansing - Follow #1 to break down makeup, massaging oil into closed eyes last. Remove with dry cloth and then repeat. Follow #2. You can also use the OCM first, remove with a cloth, and then follow with a foaming face wash or scrub.
4. Moisturizer - Apply to damp skin in or out of shower or anytime you need moisture.

💚Best oil I have used for OCM for my combo/congested skin
💚This product absolutely saved my face. I initially ordered because I was curious about OCM and on a whim figured I would try it. By the time it arrived, I had been put on antibiotics by a dermatologist and had a horrible, horrible allergic reaction. Where I had no acne before, I was absolutely *covered* in it, my whole face, chest, shoulders, etc. I made a decision to trust in Jerra's product and let it work. I used it, patiently, with the microfiber cloths and didn't touch, poke or put anything on my face for a week. Every single horrible self-confidence killing spot was gone, and all the small 'under the skin' clogs in my pores are slowly coming out. I will never go back. The cloths are amazing, the product is amazing, it's a relaxing ritual. I will never trust anyone but Jerra with my skin again!
