why can’t we use light cooking oil for 1st cleanse?

I’ve seen it mentioning somewhere that it works the same way most first cleanse do. Has anyone tried it?

Its more comedogenic. The processing of the oil is entirely different. it will work in a pinch. Havent tried it to be honest and not tempted.

It’s not very practical and it can make you break yout. Straight up oils don’t emulsify when they come in touch with water, which makes them so hard to remove. Maybe this works for dry skin types, but I wouldn’t risk it. Plus they are not very efficient on removing makeup

It can work I guess, but it doesn't have surfactants in it hence won't emulsify... It'll be a pain to remove

I heard of it before, and I know some people swear on pure oil coconut oil to remove makeup. It’s worth a try since if you already have it or just test some on your hands and see it will remove your makeup

yeah coconut oil will clog drain though. so this is why I don’t use it. but I am wondering about other cooking oil.
