OCM Day 2  
No obvious results when I woke up this morning. I'm thinking I might add more castor next time I do this - the skin is clearly very soft and clean after I cleanse but I'm not seeing the hardcore acne/blackhead/whitehead busting effects I've read about. Then again, my face IS an oil slick under normal circumstances so...

Fun note, I actually spent so much time pressing and rinsing my sink rebelled on me and started giving me warm water, which would be fine any time I'm not trying to dissolve oils. But I was done anyway so suck it, passive-aggressive sink.

Skin Notes
1) Pores seem to be bigger, whether that's the oil trying to pull stuff out by force the effect of glutting it with jojoba is anyone's guess.
2) A lot more bumps this time, though I hesitate to consider the pores clogged. It's not inflamed and not as that big. Just annoying.
3) Redness is more pinkness this time. Oddly, the scarring on my face kind of took on that pinkishness as well.
4) I have no prominent gross zits other than the two on my eyebrow. Weird place for zits, I know. What I did have seems to be healing somewhat. The gargantuan zit on my  chin now just looks like a small, dismal bump.

So it's a toss up at this point.  There's more bumpiness but no traditional big, painful zits. I'll call it a draw for now.
