Make-up remover and facial cleanser in one. This is not a cheap wipe or plain coconut oil, it's true. But where do you most use make-up remover? Around your eyes. Where are your wrinkles going to start forming first? You may feel invincible right now, but I will tell you that when you hit 35, you are going to regret half the things you did to your face and wish you could take better care of it.
Oil cleansing is a wonderful option for all skin and should be done at least once a week by everyone no matter what other faceewashes you are using. Chally HA! works as your daily make-up remover and your weekly oily cleanse (or daily oil cleanse!). It is also wonderful to put a few drops in your EffOff, Melee, or Georgia Sweet when you wash each day and make an oil scrub for your face.

How to oil cleanse? Here is a great article by Crunchy Betty that I agree with (mostly)
Oil Cleansing in 3 Easy Steps
- Prepare. Either mix your oils together ahead of time, or have the bottles ready. Set a clean washcloth beside the sink. Turn the hot water on to warm up.
- Cleanse. Starting with a dirty face (no need to pre-clean here, even if you’re wearing makeup), rinse your face lightly with the warm, running water. Pour the oil in the palm of your hand and then apply gently all over your face. Massage firmly, but gently, always moving upwards. Massage for 2 minutes, and then let the oil sit on your face for 30 more seconds or more.
- Rinse. By now, you should have very hot water coming out of your faucet. Adjust the heat until it’s cool enough to apply to your skin, but warm enough to soften the oil (it’s probably going to be hotter than the water you usually rinse your face with). Dunk the washcloth under the hot/warm water until it’s completely soaked. Apply the washcloth to your face and hold it there for 10-15 seconds. Slowly begin to wipe off. Rinse your washcloth and repeat until you’ve wiped all the oil off your skin.
I do not believe in castor oil for cleansing or for almost anything except actively trying to pull cysts or other impurities deep from the skin. Castor oil is far too drying and should be used on rare occasions, never ever daily. You may want to purchase a small amount of castor oil to use once a month or so, but please do not use it more than that unless it is used on specific problem spots only.
What is Chaulmoogra oil?! This is the witch of the brew that is called Chally HA! Chaulmoogra is the only circle-linked oil chain known. Instead of looking like a tail, it looks like a pentagram. And what does that pentagram oil do? It specifically kills the stype of staph that cause acne. This oil has been used all over India for perhaps thousands of years to treat leprosy (another thing it's good at killing) and you still see chaulmoogra trees outside of historic leprosy clinics.
Karanja Seed Oil is very similar to neem and I was turned onto it's magic acne healing ability when I intuitively told my oldest daughter to stop everything for a day and just karanja seed oil on her acne ridden face to see what happened. In just one day her skin was healing. Redness almost completely gone, more than 7 white-heads going away... she has kept it as part of her routine for 8 months now and won't leave home without something that has karanja seed oil in it.
