Paloma of the high desert is a decadent cleaning oil for all skin types.
You may use Paloma as your face cleanser and makeup remover, but also as a facial massage oil and even as a leave-on hydrating and plumping face oil (applied on cleansed skin). This oil cleanser doesn't contain surfactants and is meant to be removed with a warm moist cloth, or washed off with a foaming or gel cleanser such as Marshmallow Face Cleanser.
Choose Paloma if you need a non-emulsifying evening makeup remover and cleanser or are seeking a facial massage oil. A mix of noncomedogenic oils makes it suitable for all skin types. It has a light, liquidy, cooling feel, which makes it appealing to use in all seasons, even after a day in the sun. As you massage the oil into your face, you will find it doesn't absorb too promptly, so you may enjoy a long, leisurely massaging session without the feeling of pulling at the skin.
The scent of Paloma is refreshing and reviving, reminiscent of Egyptian geraniums, Moroccan roses, Madagascar orange leaves, and Nepalese palmarosa. Energetically, Paloma is cooling, light, and ethereal, evocative of the expansive, resilient, quiet, sun-drenched High Desert atmosphere.

How to use it
Morning & Night
Shake the bottle briefly, then dispense 4 to 6 pumps of the oil into the palms of your hands. Press into dry skin and gently massage using upward and outward circular motions to remove makeup and impurities, and to boost circulation. Add more oil as needed for a smooth glide. Follow with a warm, wet facial towel to massage the skin and remove the oil. You may then use a foaming cleanser as your second cleanse if desired.
Alternatively, Paloma may be used as a massage oil applied on clean and damp or dry skin, or as a leave-on hydrating face oil.
