Fushi and Neal's yard remedies both have high quality jojoba oil and are organic.

I recommend going easy on the jojoba oil to begin with, assuming it's your first time using it. I know some have had great results with it, but it caused me to break out terribly (I do tend to have very oily skin, which may explain why).

I bought mine from Holland & Barrett, for what it's worth.

Just chiming in and saying that Simple's light moisturiser works for me without giving me anymore spots. It does an Ok job with BP dryness too.


Currently clear of acne with the occasional hormonal breakout. Check out my routines and progress updates here:

I've never used anything as good. I have dry, sensitive skin and suffer from acne around my mouth and chin. This really sooths once I've used the BP. Seriously, try it. It's amazingamazingamazing!

I've been using this for about 3 weeks now, and I've had amazing results with it. It is very heavy, and somewhat greasy it has to be said, but it's really helped combat the dryness from BP, and it doesn't seem to break me out at all, unlike most of the other moisturisers I've tried.

Thanks so much for recommending it, as I probably would have ignored it otherwise (I've always gone for those moisturisers marketed as light, or oil free, or non comedogenic etc on the assumption that they were better for my skin - apparently not!)

^^^ totally agree. Been using it for about 2 months now and its FANTASTIC. Tried loads of others but this is about the only one that works for me, and doesn't break me out.

Should be on everyones shopping list.
