The other day my friend asked me what the difference was between a cream and an oil. Many have been asking me this questions, actually, and I am sure many others wonder the same thing. So here is my answer:
Creams are what people are familiar with. Creams are what we have learned to use when our skin is dry.

It's not longer just a fat. And fats are no longer all bad, as we also once believed. Here is the unlocked secret about oils:
Tip-> As I alluded to earlier, an oil is only worth using if you buy a top quality oil. If not, you'll be clogging your pores with grease.
