I read somewhere that some people wash their face with an

olive oil/sugar mixture. What does the sugar do?

And is it better to do this than just use olive oil on your skin after you've washed with regular soap?

  • a facialist once used products like that on my facial appointment.I liked it but then it irritated it since I have sensitive skin. But the brand is in a green tube sold by Macy's forgot the brand but they have space next to MAC in Macy's department store.
