One word. Wow! This little beauty has changed my once very oily skin to something that can pass as normal. People with oily skin should not be afraid of Oil. I use this every night for makeup removal and cleansing. I pour a generous blob into my wet hands. Massage onto my face and eyes, and remove with a wet cotton pad and voila! My skin is left makeup free, plump and softer than my toddlers bottom. I can forgo moisturiser but choose to apply some hyaluronic acid and I'm liking the results. If you want to nourish your skin naturally and aren't looking to break the bank. Please try it, your face will eventually begin to produce less oil during the day too. Can't fault it.

My skin often has a bad attitude about life. Most of the time it wants to sabotage itself. But after I introduced it to my friend Olive Oil, my skin has become so happy and cooperative. You can use it to remove your makeup, as a moisturizer, to deep clean your pores, you can mix it with sugar and make a scrub, mix it with other common kitchen items and make a mask, the possibilities are endless - but the result is always the same, no matter if you're oily, dry, combination or sensitive: amazing, soft, smooth, clear, radiant skin.

Hands down, EVOO works like magic. I live in a very dry climate and tried all sorts of creams and lotions for my dry and wrinkly looking hands. I even ordered collagen powder just to help my skin. Nothing really worked for me. Until I was reading an article about EVOO for skin. My hands feel and look younger and also my nails seem to be stronger . No more breakage! I also mix 1-2 drops into my moisturizer and my face is glowing, absolutely love it.

i haven't used anything else to remove makeup since 2011 and i don't think i ever will.

i use this nightly to remove concealer/powder/eyeliner/mascara/lipstick etc etc and follow up with my usual cleanser. it's supposedly noncomedogenic but im dubious. when i dont wash this off, i do find that i get an increase in whiteheads and blackheads. i've noticed some folks claim it's impossible for this oil to clog your pores, but in my experience, it absolutely can. it may be because my pores are larger, but it's just plain false that this is 100% flat out incapable of clogging anyone's pores ever. people react differently to different things, so if you know your skin is sensitive to particularly cloying/occlusive products, make sure you rinse this off after use.

i recommend using it in the shower exclusively. I like to wet my face, wash my hair + body, then pour a little oil in my hand and massage it into my skin. i've seen ppl suggest putting it onto a cotton pad and wiping your makeup off dry, but honestly i think it works better when there's water involved because water helps break up your makeup too. no money wasted on cotton pads and it feels way way way gentler on your face. i find that normally evoo doesnt remove everything on its own the way i use it, i guess since oil and water dont mix, but after i go back in with a normal cleanser, everything is gone. the oil really helps to break down the makeup water isn't able to break up on its own and holds onto it all until your cleanser gets in and breaks down the oil itself.

i will say that if i wear gel liner one day i do have to take a cotton swab of this to my eyes after showering but luckily evoo's good for your lashes kkkkk

I have begun a blushing, new love affair with extra virgin olive oil. Sure, I always appreciated it's crisp, fruity pungescence (is that a word?) from afar as it glistened on top of my salads and pasta, but I kept my distance. Eating it was fine and good, but on my skin? On my FACE skin? Heavens no. What would people think?! BUT, as coy flirtations sometimes tend to do, this one has now blossomed into full on luuurve. Each evening I sneak off into the bathroom to spend time with my green lovely, I add a few drops to my bathwater, I OCM with it followed by gently smoothing on a bit more, loving every luxurious moment. I use is (sparingly!) to tame and smooth the parched ends of my hair, and end with a drop on my lips. It feels decadent, and my skin loves it. It's smooth, moisturized, and dare I say it, radiant. It's never looked better. A FINAL CAVEAT: do not attempt this with cheap or adulterated EVOO. You need the good stuff to be sure that what you are using is 100% Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil. False advertising is rife in the EVOO world. The true gems will cost you more, but better a light wallet than a congested, irritated face (IMHO). Costco actually has a good imported organic EVOO, and California Olive Ranch EVOO works well for me too. Don't be afraid to love it! You just might!

This is the only thing I use on my face, and I've tried all the expensive oils. I do have very good skin, but I was starting to age like my mom - more slight sagging than wrinkles, marionette sort of lines. I started using this a year ago, and my skin glows and I don't notice the lines as much, and my sun damage has faded to nothing. Magical for me!

My favorite thing to use olive oil for in my beauty routine is in a body scrub. I just mix this with sugar and i'm good to go. I've soaked my feet in this and hot water in the past and liked that, as well. I think the consistency is not right for moisturizing the body, but that's my opinion. I like coconut oil for that. I've also used this heated up and poured on my hair for a mask. This was fine, but I think it can be a little touch to wash out. A friend posted she was using olive oil on her lashes and they seemed to be growing so I used this as an eye makeup remove and it stung the eff out of my eyes so i'm not touching it for that anymore. I like coconut oil for eye makeup remover. It also has definitely helped my lashes out. They're longer. The only thing I use olive oil for these days is for body scrub but I really like it for that and this stuff is so cheap so using a little for body scrub instead of buying one is a good option. It can make your shower floor slick so be careful. I'm sure it works well for other people as other things which is great but this is really the only way I like it.

I use extra virgin olive oil to make ointment with beeswax, that I use on my face. I am also purchasing olive oil with laurel for my hair. It's my favourite "product" for skin/hair care!

I picked up extra virgin olive oil from the farmers market which is all natural with no preservatives, tried it for 1 month and all I got was pimples growing all over my forehead and flaky dry skin on my nose and cheeks. Had to go back to my moisturiser after this. Maybe i will be better to mix with other ingredients or just hair but my face didn't agree to it at all.
