dan's gel is a lot in texture like proactiv. i def hated using neutrogena on the spot bc i felt like i was rubbing off skin or something in the process of rubbing it in. it definately got dry before i got a chance to spread it around my face--it was like a race.
what does this smell like? is it strong? is it floral or green tea-like? and of course how does it tackle flakes? Brandy, you are the greatest for sacrifycing your skin for the good of the people:) we love you!
hey gigglebox, i know you werent trying to imply anything about joppa's emu oil:) i was actually one of the people on the joppa board that said it had a distinct scent. i def dont think it smells like fried chicken tho:) i recommend that emu oil, but i dont really have anythign to compare it to.
emus are killed for their meat and when they are killed the oil is extracted so in essence the emu would be killed whether or not the oil would be used because there is a huge industry for emu meat (its like a luxury or something).
personally, i REALLY like emu oil and am using joppa's. it does not smell like fried chicken but has a slight scent that disappears as soon as it dries. i have a very accute sense of smell (my boyfriend calls me a bloodhound) so others may not actually smell it. my boyfriend said it doesnt smell like anything.
i do not find joppa's emu oil oily. in fact once it is absorbed into my skin my skin is pretty matte, but not excessively dry.
you should probably note that i have not tried any other emu oil besides joppa's. but i am really happy with joppa's so i prob wont:)
has anybody tried a green smoothie with collard greens. the reason i ask is because i have never had collard greens raw so im not sure if its ok to eat them raw in the form of a smoothie. and now that lettuce is being recalled as well spinach my choices are getting narrower.
i dont think i could put tea tree oil all over my face like i do bp bc it is a lot more drying than bp. but i do like it as a spot treatment. however, regular application of bp prevents me from having to use tea tree oil often.
