My name is Christen, I'm 30 years old and a stay-at-home mom to my three beautiful girls, Lauren, Hailey, and Farrah. My husband David and I live on scenic Long Island and we love it. Our party of 5 keeps pretty busy, but I try to set aside as much time as I can to blog (which isn't as often as I'd like these days).

Favorite Product of the Month: DHC Deep Cleansing Oil

Each month, I will be sharing one of my new favorite products with you. For the month of January (I didn't get a chance to post this last month), I want to highlight a product I recently discovered through my monthly Citrus Lane subscription when I received a deluxe sample of it several months ago. That product is DHC Deep Cleansing Oil.

When I first saw the sample packaging, I wasn't impressed. It was a short, stout little bottle that certainly didn't boast about its contents with an overly designed label with a printed promise of being the best in the market. But I wanted to try it because I wasn't familiar with "cleansing oil". A bit of an oxymoron, no? I always thought oil clogged your pores and caused breakouts. No thanks! But I used the entirety of the deluxe sample and noticed afterwards that my skin felt much more smooth and appeared almost blemish free.

I now own a full-size bottle and regularly use it. When I use the Deep Cleansing Oil, I put the product into my palm - about the size of a nickel, and gently massage it all over my dry face. I can actually feel the daily buildup coming off of my skin! Afterwards, I either step into the shower or use the bathroom sink to rinse and wash the residue off of my face. Luckily I have fairly good skin to begin with, but I definitely see an improvement with the addition of this product to my daily routine. This cleansing oil is ideal for removing makeup (especially waterproof mascara), dirt, and excess oil. It contains both olive oil and vitamin E. :-)

I've already looked online at more of DHC's products to see what other treasures they sell. I also sampled the Imperial Green Tea Shower Gel and it's next on my list to order.

Another thing I really like about DHC is that the company is generous with samples. You can choose up to four free samples with each order your place on their website and they often send out brochures via mail with samples enclosed.

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil (6.7 fl. oz) $28.00

I'll be randomly selecting one person to receive a DHC Deep Cleansing Oil Mini (1 fl. oz.) which is valued at $5.50. If you're interested in trying out this product, provide your e-mail in a comment below.
