LAVO is one mean cleaning machine! I washed my face then dried it off well. I then took a cotton ball and added LAVO to it and wiped over my face & even my eyes. First I was happy that I could use it over my closed eye lids and that it didn't burn or hurt. Second I was shocked to see all of the dirt that this cleansing oil removed I picked up a lot of dirt so much that my cotton ball was black. I guess just washing my face doesn't remove all of my old make up too! This is a great cleaning product for your skin it didn't break me out or anything. I have even let my 12 year old use it and she has skin problems but this product cleaned her face with no problems at all. I got this product at no charge in return for a honest review.
