Olive oil alongside other oils are great for so many reasons!
It not only takes off all makeup and cleanses my pores so well i dont even need facials! Stopped only coz i was getting lazy having to wash it off again with a face cleanser.

I have really dry skin and olive oil helps a little bit but my face is still dry it makes your skin more oily than anything and i have a feeling its breaking me out because the only thing ive been using on my face is olive oil and im breaking out pretty bad i dont think it has really any benefits for dry skin

I absolutely love using extra virgin olive oil as a facial moisturizer. I have quite bad acne, and I have found that my skin looks less red and inflamed when I use this, and I even feel like it helps my pimples to subside quicker! I will definitely continue to use this product and I absolutely recommend trying it out, especially since you probably already have some at home!

I'm so glad I stumbled across this! I read reviews for EVOO and it's many uses and thought I'd give it a try. So far, I've used the oil cleansing method to remove my makeup by using two pumps of the EVOO (I put in a travel lotion type pump bottle) and smearing all over my face while it's dry. This pretty much liquifes all my makeup and makes me look like I have a gray face! LOL! Then I wash it all off with The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil cleanser because I naturally have fairly oily skin. This gets rid of all the residue and leaves my skin clean and soft. Then I use the Tea Tree Oil toner and moisturizer and a drop of EVOO under each eye. My fine lines are much less since doing this. I've also put a travel size lotion pump bottle in my shower and after I've finished showering, I put a few pumps in my hand and rub it all over my body. After stepping out of the shower, I pay myself dry. I found, even with as dry as our Southern California winter has been, I've needed NO lotion, no additional moisturization, and my skin looks fabulous. I've also noticed my fragrances last longer because my skin is more moisture rich. LOVE THIS STUFF! I won't waste my money on lotions anymore, unless they're the scented kind I'm using simply for layering scent. For straight up moisture, nothing comes close. HG status, for real.

Olive oil is such a simple,but yet effective product to use. And I also have taken it up using it other ways than just a moisturizer,so I think I should share some of the tips and ways I use olive oil.Bobbi Brown uses it too! I use it in ; My hair,skin, cuticles and also exfoilliants.
Hair; For an upcoming special event,2 weeks before ditch the creams,mousses,heat,harsh brushes,extensions and basically anything damaging to your hair.3 times a week (prefably not after/before shower) Dampen hair and then massage into.Rinse but don't scrub,and airdry hair.Hello split-end free,moisturized hair!
Face;Using cotton wool pads,dampen face and apply for soft and smooth heavenly face..Or for a yummy facemask mix honey for moisture,carrots for detoxing or even some asprin works well.To remove makeup just add water (:
Body;Keep some in your shower and don't towel dry,first massage some in for extra moisture!Then carefully towel dry after.
Exfoiliate: (Not for the face) You need:Either brown sugar, white or salt.Olive oil and (optional) honey.Use grounded salt and the honey is really moisterising too!
Cuticules: Apply with a cotton bud and leave for 10 minutes, before rinsing and pushing your cuticles back. (the oil softens) then apply oil once more.
Basically this product (or shall I say cooking material) is heaven in a box.Love it!

There are soooo many great ways to use olive oil!!
1. I mix half water half olive oil in a bottle, and use that as my moisturiser and makeup remover. Its fantastic on my dry skin. Though I would never ever put it on underneath makeup.
2. My new favourite use. Cuticle Oil. I've been using lucas' paw paw ointment as my cuticle softener, but this is soo much better. Its' really softening, I rub it in and it softens soo freaking much. ive done this four times over the course of the evening, and they look better than they have in ages...heres hoping it lasts..
Im sure there are other uses, but i don't remember them right now.

After reading positive reviews about EVOO I thought I might aswell give it a go. This is how I used it..
- Apply over entire face, including the eye area, to remove all traces of makeup.
- Wash off by either rinsing or with an extremely soft wash cloth I got from the Body Shop.
- Cleanse with Goats Milk Soap to remove the yucky, greasy residue.
A few times I've added sugar into it to use as a scrub, which felt amazing, but I've only done that once.
It's been just over a month since using it and I've either broken out or began to purge. If it has made me purge well I wish I had started this a bit before I did due to school being in about 2 days. The pimples have popped up near my mouth which I hate because they hurt the most and take FOREVER to go away.
I've now gone back to using my regular drug-store cleanser and using EVOO as a makeup remover.
All in all, I'm pretty bummed that this has made me skin like this, especially after I finally got it under control and nearly had all my acne gone!

I tried EVOO last year and never expected to be using it for so long. I do use it as a make up and eye makeup remover (I spread a few drops over a slightly damp cotton pad and wipe it gently over my skin and eyes) but more consistently I use it as a face moisturiser. I pour mine into a dropper bottle, drop two drops on my palm, rub it between my hands and lightly pat it into my skin. Under make up I tend to use one drop instead of two.
This is brilliant stuff, heaps better than most of the brands I have tried and balances the natural moisture in my skin.

I have very oily, moderate-severe acne. I've developed cystic acne for the first time about 2-3 years ago. I started using EVOO as a moisturizer and it has helped my skin tremendously. I use jojoba and/or EVOO to remove make up. If your skin type is similar to mine, it is okay to use the OCM (oil cleansing method); however, you'll have to modify it. I take a few drops of jojoba and/or EVOO oil, rub together to warm up and gently press all over my face and eyes. Then I gently massage the oil into my skin. I use circular motions and am very gentle with my eyes. I rub my eyes and it removes all of the mascara and primer and eyeliner. I then take cotton pads and remove the oil. You can also use those makeup remover wipes at this stage if you'd like. You're just trying to remove some of the oil and make up. Next, I wash my face with a cleanser to wash away the makeup, oil and dirt. I feel this is an important step. If you have oily and/or acne prone skin, wear makeup and use the OCM, you must STILL use a cleanser to remove the makeup and oil from your skin. Otherwise, I believe it will cause major problems, breakouts. After my skin is clean and I've used a toner, I take 2 or 3 drops of EVOO (sometimes I add jojoba oil) and press into my skin. Over my face, eyes and neck. Then I take a hot face clothe/flannel and steam the oil into my skin. Any other products I want to use (anti acne products such as glycolic creams or azelaic acid), I apply 20 or 30 minutes later. I've been doing this for ages and I can tell you, it has made a difference in my skin. It has even my skintone and faded dark circles under my eyes. It has faded hyperpigmentation marks, decrease my pores/size of my pores and reduced oiliness in my skin. I really do believe that EVOO is great for the skin. It does not cause breakouts in my skin. There is purging for sure; if you have acne prone skin, there will be some purging. Using a bit of EVOO, I think will benefit acne prone skin. I don't think you should cover your skin with this but using a bit and steaming it into the skin is fine.

Truly multipurpose. Works just as well as HE brands to remove stubborn eye make up at only a fraction of the cost. I also use this as tanning oil, cuticle oil, eyelash conditioner, hair treatment, as well as the first step in cleaning my make up brushes. Decanting the oil into smaller containers for specific usages helps to keep spills and mess to a minimum.

If I avoid applying this oil to my eyelids it has some very beneficial effects for my skin! I use it on my face as a hydrating mask or moisturizer overnight in ocations, if I use it every night my skin breaks out. It softens and hydrates my skin very much and removes the dry feeling totally. If applied on eyelids it makes my eyes sting and I wake up the next morning with very swelled eyelids and sometimes undereye bags - not recommendable. Sometimes just after application I have some slightly ichy spots on my skin, but it's nothing alarming or visible and I don't break out. I have reacted the same way to apricot kernel seed oil. I also use this as a hydration overnight treatment for the whole body once in a while just after taking a shower where I exfoliate the body with a body scrub first. It leaves my skin very soft. Remember to wear some clothes that can handle the excess oil. The best thing is that it has no harsh chemicals and its something you can find in your kitchen.

My hair absolutely loves this! Much more so then virgin coconut oil.. On days that I wash my hair I work a small amount through dry hair, leave for about half an hour then continue with my normal shampoo and conditioner routine..It washes out much more easily then coconut oil and doesn't weigh my thin hair down. It makes my hair very sleek and moisturised, very manageable and healthy..fruit of the earth, of course our hair and skin love it!

I've been using this as my nighttime moisturizer for... a lil more than a year now. personally I cant live without it. i was my face with just water and literally slather this all over my face and neck. its amazing... leaves the skin plump, soft, and glowing. packaging.. must be in a dark glass bottle. its the only type i buy and i always buy organic EVOO... since its the only thing that touches my face besides water i feel i should buy the best quality and i prefer the imported tuscany ones from costco...its been my HG for over a year..and i would definitely recommend to everyone...

God. OLIVE OIL. How did I ever go without you?
So, I got some from our pantry, poured into one of those small empty travel bottles, and this along with cotton pads are my NEW best friends. Here's what I use my EVOO for:)
Eye makeup remover- If nothing else, I HIGHLY recommend this to everyone. It has never failed to get any off. Just apply some to a cotton pad (you don't need a ton), let it sit on your eye makeup, and gently wipe away all that stubborn makeup. i ONLY use waterproof mascara, including Cover Girl Lash Blast, Maybelline's Colossal, etc. and EVOO has made even my most hard to remove mascaras look like wimps. Conditions my lashes.:)
Night moisturizer- Yep. I use a SMALL (talking about less than a dime size) amount all over my face and neck after cleansing. I wake up to soft, moisturized skin. EVOO does NOT clog your pores. It CAN'T clog your pores because the molecules are much larger than your pores. Ask any dermatologist. This has made my skin super soft & lovely & more evenly toned. it feels great especially after using a facial scrub.
Hair- this is where I draw the line. It's WAYY too heavy & concentrated to just pour on my hair, but I use Garnier's Triple Nutrition conditioner, which contains olive oil, & I must say, the oil blend is proven to keep hair healthy. Since using this, my hair's been growing quickly. I'd recommend using a small amount in a homemade hair mask:)
The fragrance lasts maybe one minute. This stuff is CHEAP & lasts forever since it's so concentrated. Don't ever spend money on eye makeup remover again. EVOO is so much better than baby oil (aka mineral oil, which is majorly controversial), has been used for centuries, and is honestly my best friend. just PLEASE don't slather this on before going outside or your poor cute self will crisp. :)

This product is amazing! My skin is drier than the Sahara Desert, and this is the perfect moisturizer/cleanser/makeup-remover. All of the other cleansers/make-up removers/moisturizers I have claim to be nourishing and so moisturizing. This olive-oil for skin is actually used by my aunts and they told me to try it. Not only does it work great, but it's so cheap. Although, many acne-prone skinned people might heed this, don't. My skin is so acne prone and this did not break it out. it gave me the moisture I needed to actually stop my pores from clogging up due to dry skin. Just give it a try! And if you don't like it, well you can always go back and use it as a salad dressing ;)

Simply, the best and cheapest thing I have ever done for my skin. I was very skeptical. I got some, put it in a bottle and put it in my shower. Every time i'm finishing up, I pour some onto my hands and massage into my wet skin. When i'm out, I pat dry. I sometimes use a light moisturizer over this, but it gives THE MOST beautiful healthy glow to your skin without leaving it feeling too oily. The scent does not linger, and ever since I started using it my skin is a lot more uniform in colour, softer, and people are constantly asking what moisturizer I use. I also use it instead of shaving gel! This has also reduced the amount of ingrown hairs I get after shaving.
Natural, cheap, simple, effective.
Still a bit scared to use it on my face, I may use it before cleansing. For my hair, it weighs it down too much.
Just make sure that if you use it in the shower to clean the bottom so you don't slip!

Update #2: I've phased olive oil out of my routine as coconut oil agrees with my hair better, and sweet almond oil agrees with my skin better. The local hard water made a stronger dilution of Dr. Bronner's necessary, so I removed the EVOO component. However, I will always have this around, and in a pinch I won't hesitate to use it as a substitute!
Update: Since I've moved further north in Canada, the climate has been harsh and unforgiving to my skin and hair. I've added more EVOO to my Dr. Bronner soap mix to counteract the extra dryness, and begun using it as a hair serum. I need literally two drops for thick mid-back length hair. As everyone else has mentioned, over-doing it will make you look greasy in a split second compared to normal hair serums (which are slightly more forgiving in over-application).
This is a key addition to my daily use products. I add it to my face/body wash (a Dr Bronner dilution) and brown sugar exfoliant. This gives a hint of moisture during cleaning to leave the skin feeling less "stripped". On nights when I have a lot of eye makeup to remove, I gently rub a little bit of olive oil around my eyes before using my usual cleanser. This just loosens the makeup and makes sure all of it is washed off.
Due to its natural moisturizing properties, my skin is less stressed and therefore looks calmer since I started adding it to my cleanser. I have yet to try it as a standalone moisturizer or hair serum on a regular basis, but will do so in a pinch. Of course, you can't beat the price and how readily available it is, no matter where you are in the world!

EVOO is frankly one of the cheapest and most effective beauty products out there. I use it for my hair as a leave-in conditioning treatment once a week, and I mix it with sugar as an exfoliator and instead of washing off the oil I use it in place of shaving cream and moisturizer. I've also used it on my lips and mixed with sugar for exfoliating and conditioning. Try using it as a makeup remover or on nail cuticles that need winter care.
