I've been reading this on many threads...Does using too much jojoba oil cause break outs???? I wouldn't be surprised because it is an OIL but can someone just verify this for me i'd really appreciate it. and if there is already a thread going on this topic just refer me to the link!

I started the Regimen last October. I had mild, to (at its worst) moderate acne. Through November and December I used all three Acne.org products and I applied the moisturizer twice a day, which in itself contains Jojoba Oil. Plus, I added 4-5 drops of extra Jojoba Oil to it every time. I cleared up pretty much completely and stayed that way with really no breakouts at all. I wouldn't worry about it.

Acne doesn't overwhelm my life, but it has been my little black dog for near five years. Even before acne I had poor skin quality. Why can't I just transplant the skin from my tummy to my face? jeez why not ruin my life. Nahhh, I'm just kidding. If I ever get clear I'll find other things to obsess over like my abundance of freckles or my teeth lol. I'm a fun and nice girl. Don't be shy around me because I'll be shy back. what an annoying cycle........

I use jojoba on a daily basis--as a cleanser, moisturizer, lip-moisturizer, as a conditioner, i put it on my hands and elbows....i love the stuff and I put a LOT on, i slather myself in it lol. BUT everyone reacts differently. Jojoba is in fact a wax not an oil. But it shouldn't make a difference because it is also a common myth that oils in general lead to acne.

I say you try it. Chances are you won't hate it but you won't love it. So you probably won't end up being a jojoba holic like me. smile.gif
Current Regimen:

AM: Blot or maybe rinse with water
Skin Gel by Aloe Life on pimples
Sometimes everyday minerals to cover up

PM: cleanse with jojoba oil, steam face with wash cloth and gently exfoliate (if I'm not lazy)
Skin Gel....like a mask all over my face :)

I have discovered that my acne isn't better when I am always trying to medicate it... When i wash my face every night and use specific acne solutions, my acne is no better. I once went 5 days without washing (out of pure laziness actually) I even wore makeup and all that jazz haha ew, and my skin didn't get worse. I find I have less big pimples, and whatever I do have there is dried up fantastically by the aloe gel.

I'm pretty sure the root cause of my acne is completely internal...hormonal most likely.

I little confused with this Jojoba. I used this jojoba mix with my sunscreen, usually 1-2 drops every morning after I apply Clindamycin. I use this regimen for 1 week.
Suddenly, I got 2 red big bumps in my left cheeks that I never got these. I didnt know this caused by Jojoba or not. Or this is purging ???

I hope not, because I like jojoba.

I tried jojoba oil before on my face, and at that time, I broke out. Of course, other things could have caused it, but I can't get the nerve to try again.

Oils in general do not cause acne. It is just a fact that when your skin is dirty it is oily, and the bacteria that happens to cause acne is often oily. Just because "liquid X" if consumed is poisonous does not mean that any liquid is poisonous, get what i'm trying to say ?? tongue.gif

Jojoba Oil is actually a wax, the oil part is to make it sound better Jojoba Wax is not a very pleasant name for something going on your skin. And it is non-comedogenic and mimics your own skin's sebum(oil) so its virtually impossible for you to breakout from it unless of course you are allergic to jojoba seeds.

Ive definitely found a correlation between jojoba oil and breakouts for me. It sucks because I really do like the stuff. For some reason it only breaks me out on my forehead. But each time I stop and go back to the original regimen I clear right up. Ill probably keep trying though.

Jojoba never made me break out. I add it to my moisturizer twice a day and it's really saved my skin from drying and flakes-- seriously the drying was horrible. I would recommend it to everyone.
Morning: [/bCetaphil Gentle Cleansing Bar , Dan's Moisturizer, Dan's AHA, Neutrogena SPF 55 Sheer Ageless Face Lotion

Night: Cetaphil Gentle Cleansing Bar, Dan's BP Treatment and Differin Gel (take turns every other day), Dan's Moisturizer plus a bit of Dan's AHA a few nights a week and Clinque All About Eyes rich eye cream.

Daily face make-up: Neutrogena Healthy Skin Foundation SPF 20, Physician's Formula correction pen cover-up, Bare Minerals powder with a CLEAN brush.

Medicine: Yaz Birth Control- 5th month.

[b]Rituals:
I use a clean face towel each time, luke warm water and I sleep without my face touching my pillows. I try to keep my hair from touching my face and use speaker phone or ear-piece during my phone conversations.

After 10 months of dealing with my adult acne (got it September 2008 after never having skin problems), I can say now that I am completely clear! I can't tell if it's the Yaz birth control, the Differin, the AWESOME regimen that I learned from this website (Dan's regimen that I later tweaked to fit me).

Same thing happened to me. I forgot the first week to use it, tried it the 2nd week and got 2 zits on my forehead the next day. That made me nervous so I didn't use it for a few days with no breakouts. I tried it again about a week later and got a new zit. It could just be coincidence but my face is usually pretty clear (I suffer from body breakouts) until I tried this stuff. I'm really paranoid about trying it again.

That happened to me too! I tried it again though. I just didnt use it as a moisturizer. I apply it to a couple of cotton balls and apply jojoba oil on them. Then I use it to remove my make up and then of course I wash my face
My regimen changed (starting 5/16/09) and I am not a happy camper

AM regimen
Wash face and chest with Kaiser 5% bp wash
Moisturize with face reality skincare cranberry cream
Apply Estee Lauder Future Perfect Eye Cream
Apply make up, blush, finishing powder, MAC moisture cover to dark underyeye circles
Pop a doxycycline

PM regimen
Remove make up with desert esscence jojoba oil using cotton balls
starting evening of May 28, 2009, I wash my face with Face Reality Skincare Sensitive Skin Gel Cleanser at night time only
Apply Differin to face and chest
Wait to dry and moisturize with face reality skincare cranberry cream
Apply Estee Lauder Future Perfect Eye Cream
Pop a doxycycline

Foundation- MAC Studio Tech Foundation in NC20 or MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation in NW15, apply a MAC blush, apply MAC prep and prime finishing powder


Anyone who has a problem zit thats having a hard time healing, try this and let me know if it helped you. Mix one tablespoon of sea salt with three tablespoons of warm water, apply to a cotton ball or a paper towel. Apply to the zit for ten to fifteen minutes, and then wash it off.

Jojoba Oil is meant for oily skin.
But I don't know how the results vary. I'm about to try for my oily skin.

Did anybody breakout from applying jojoba oil on oily skin?

If it does breakout, it means that the breakout was going to happen anyway. It brings toxins to the surface and cleans it from inside out. Jojoba oil only helps you. This initial breakout is actually the the process of cleaning your pores.

Ive been into researching skin care for a longggg time now, and i'll tell you what...


EVERYTHING breaks people out. There is not a single product out there that will work for everybody. The criteria I use to buy products now is:

A. Does the product empirically (scientifically) break you out/clog your pores

B. Does it work for the majority of people


Now, I don't know what you have read, but reviews on this site and on makeupalley (another product review site) and all over the internet are very positive for jojoba oil...it rarely breaks people out. Do some google searches for it also, you'll see that it often helps preventing acne as opposed to causing now.


In my own personal experience, I have skin that is very sensitive to products, and I can slather on jojoba oil without it breaking me out.


So, can it break you out? Yes. Will it break you out? Probably not... It makes my skin glow and I love it

It doesn't seem to clog my pores, but it a jojoba/castor mix does seem to pull stuff to the surface faster, somehow. Similar to, but not quite as severe, as the effect I get from a retinoid. Jojoba oil is a transdermal carrier so it can help other products penetrate deeper into the skin. This is useful if you're treating under the skin bumps with tea tree oil. Mix it with a bit of jojoba.

Jojoba oil is helping as a moisturizer for me. However, I'm having trouble staying clear once I started using it.
