"Lipid-Balance Cleansing Oil"
From product name
WIMJ summary for cleansing

This product works by removing dirt and oil from the surface of the skin.

Keep in mind that cleansing can disrupt the skin barrier, and most people do not need to cleanse their skin more than once per day.

What does the product description say?
"Incredibly gentle, the formula works to dissolve dirt and impurities without stripping the skin for a softer, fresher surface."
WIMJ summary for exfoliation

This product does not contain effective exfoliating ingredients. It might be able to deliver physical exfoliation, that is scrub off some of the dead cells on the surface of the skin. We do not recommend physical exfoliation, because it is not uniform (some bits of skin can get exfoliated too much while others not at all). It can also traumatize the skin and aggrevate acne and other skin conditions.

WIMJ summary for anti-blemish
