Well I tried the cinnamon anyway ;-) I did half my face before all of a sudden I WAS ON FIRE!! So I quickly grabbed my soft face towel and ran to the sink. I gently rinsed and rinsed then gently wiped the rest away with my towel.
Once my face and eyes were dry I looked at the towel. What material was left on it was very small orange pieces and blood. At every wipe orange pieces and blood.
I eventually decided no guts no glory! So I went for the other half of my face, probably less than half. I didn't get the same results from my forehead and nose or maybe I missed it or didn't leave it on till it burned like fire.
I don't regret doing the cinnamon version but wouldn't do it again. I would stick to the original recipe using nutmeg and cheap olive oil I had already purchased from a discount store.
Can't wait to have someone do this treatment on my back!
