Washing with Oil: Slick or Sick?

One of the trends lately has been to use oil to wash your face with instead of cleansers or soap.i had resisted trying it until one of my fav nail polish/makeup companies came out with a product called Bare Face. It is rose hip oil based. I have been using it for a few months now and I really like it. It cuts through make up and mascara very well and as you massage it on you can really feel it cleaning out your pores

After rinsing it off, my skin does not feel dry and tight. I do have oily skin but I don't feel it has made it oilier. I think it feels more balanced and I am breaking out less. I have also experimented with making my own mix with sesame seed, almond and olive oils. That works nicely too. 

I have to say that with the results I have been getting I will continue using oil to wash my face. It is cheaper in the long run as I don't need eye make up remover.  I use less moisturizer, and I haven't had to buy anti- acne products. Win win! If you haven't tried oil, do it and let me know what you think.
