I’ve known quite a few people who use olive oil instead of traditional lotion on their skin, but it was always a little too greasy for my face and hands.
But for about a month, I’ve been using a new product called Olive & M from Austinite Mariska Nicholson without that same leftover residue. The three products in the skin care line — a face oil, a body oil and a cleansing oil — are all made with extra-virgin olive oil from Texas Olive Ranch, as well as a proprietary mixture of other plant-based oils and extracts from ingredients such as pink grapefruit, bergamot and clary sage. They smell wonderful and are super effective at hydrating dry winter skin, even when I was in Missouri, where it is typically much colder and drier than here.
You can find out more about the products, which start at $58 for a 4 oz. bottle, at oliveandm.com.
