Does anyone do this? I keep reading rave reviews about it, my skin looks a little dull just wondered if this was worth trying? I mean on my face by the way! Thanks

Yes, I have sensitive skin and when I get a really bad reaction, it's sometimes the only thing my face will tolerate. I prefer the 'light' variety so I don't smell like a salad bowl. I also like almond oil and wheatgerm oil.

Do you use it every night, and how is your skin when you wake up? Has it ever made you break out?

I alternate between olive oil, almond oil and wheatgerm oil as my standard moisturiser both night and morning. I add a sunscreen on top in the mornings and that's it. I've done this for about the last 5 years, ever since I got a bad reaction from some unknown skin product. I should add that I'm 60 so I have ageing, fairly dry skin and breakouts aren't an issue any more! But my skin feels soft and, all things considered, it's in pretty good nick.
