My nephew Tom and his wife Jean make an extraordinary cleansing oil.
I just started using it. I have very sensitive skin and I've found this oil to be very soothing. It moisturizes as well as cleans and has a very light natural scent from the ingredients. If you have time take a look and read the reviews and see if this might work for you.
