So I have been using Jojoba Oil as a face moisturiser...
I have been using Jojoba Oil on its own on my face at night times as my combination skin has been driving me crazy....
Have to tell you ladies, the stuff is great !! My skin is in better condition than it has been since, well, ever really !!
It feels a bit greasy when you first apply it, but in no time at all it has sunk in and I can't recommend it enough !! I am using my usual p&p serum in the morning, but Jojoba oil only on a night. Wonderful stuff !!
I've been using this as a facial moisturiser for the last 7 yes and never looked back! I used to think I had combo skin, but after starting this my oily t zone just vanished! My skin is uber sensitive too, and I never had much Luck with moisturisers. Not used in hair though, I tend to use coconut oil for that
I buy jojoba oil on Amazon. AmberLeaf I get the odd spot and it's not made worse by the oil. Just got to make sure not to use too much and massage it in well. I use a small amount - just a couple of drops does it.
I use coconut oil as a body moisturiser, a leave-in deep conditioning treatment for my hair, and to tame my hair if it's a bit frizzy. I also eat it, it comes in a pure solid form and melts at body temperature. It's a great all-rounder
at last!!!! jojoba is brilliant, the oil that most closely resembles our skin's sebum, so perfect for any type!!! is also a brilliant eye make up remover too! and coconut oil is fab as a cleanser and also for making flapjacks!!!!
