It makes a great scrub and it takes care of my blackheads! I usually do that once a day in the evening to take my makeup off, and use St Ives Apricot Scrub in the shower in the morning.
So you leave your makeup in until you shower at night?

I wash my face to take my makeup off before I go to bed. I work nights, so I go to bed at different times I also have makeup removing wipes that I use in a pinch if i don't have access to my scrub.

I have been using a combo of castor and grapeseed oils. I do find that my skin is sometimes dry in the morning, and feel like it needs a moisturizer. What oil or moisturizer should I use?

What kind of skin do you have?
I have acne prone, oily but dehydrated skin. I like kukui nut oil because it's light and absorbs easily. you can also use your grapeseed oil too. Just put a drop or two into your palm and apply it to a damp face.
Coconut oil is good too. I like avocado oil but only for night because it's a big heavy. I have also used camellia and jojoba (again too heavy for me)

Sounds like I have the same skin as you! I will try my grapeseed oil tomorrow. Thanks

I use a mixture of castor oil and safflower oil in a one to one ratio. For oily skin is says to use more castor oil, for dry skin use more safflower oil. I had started with 2 to one castor oil because I have oily skin, but then my face felt dry so I switched to the 50/50 mix and now it works great! So you might try adjusting your mixture too.

I've been using Sweet Almond oil that I purchased off Amazon. However, I recently found out that my local GNC carries it too. The local Vitamin Shoppe also carries the oils.

I've heard good things about Mountain Rose Herbs. I plan to purchase some of the oils I can't find locally from them.
