Oil based moisturiser for a teenage lad

Hi, DS1 (16) has combination skin, oily forehead and chin but dry nose and cheeks. He does use a moisturiser but his teacher, apparently, told him not to use a water based one and to go for an oil based one.

Can anyone recommend one?

He might do better just using something like pure Jojoba oil as a moisturiser. Just a few drops massaged in. The theory is that using oil on oily ( or combination ) skin helps to balance it out.

Dr Hauschka Cleansing Cream followed by Normalising Day Oil. It's amazing for combination, hormonal spotty skin!

what SJ47 said, Hauschka also does trial kits.

But the stuff, esp the oil lasts ages. I would maybe try it out using a trial kit as suggested.

Superdrug Vitamin E facial oil is only about £1.99 and just as good.
