l33tpete added a topic in Over-the-counter acne medications and productsEmu vs Jojoba vs Manuka vs TTO... whats the diff?Ok, so My skin just doesn't like the Neutrogena oil-free stuff mixed with BP.
After a few days it just feels too dry and when i'm putting on the Neutro moisturizer, it feels like my skin is just burning. And then later on i'm red and flaking, and then by the end of teh day i'm just greasing out >.<
i'm definitely yearning for more natural products like a lot of you guys (eventually i dream of like just using a cleanser only once a day or something )
I've seen lots of peeople talk about using these different oil's in their regimens, but i'm not sure exactly how they all fit in to your guys' regimens. At first, when i read "oil" i think moisturizer but i'm not so sure after reading lots of these posts. Here's my guess from what i've read so far...
Emu Oil - moisturizer or toner (dry skin??)
Jojoba Oil - moisturizer or toner (oily skin??)
Tea Tree Oil - like 5% BP replacement or cleanser ??
Manuka Oil - like 10% BP replacement, exfoliating ..??
Manuka Honey - exfoliator/moisturizer ???
Really just want like a simple description of each, like what part they play in a regimen. I'm really wanting to try them since they sound more natural than BP or the ingredients in my current moisturizers. Also, if theres any problems / complications that can happen when mixing this stuff with the other things (i.e. SA, AHA's, BP) in regimens. Preciate any help on this, thanks
