Hello Everyone!

Just wondering, in your experience, what your favorite oil is to use to moisturize you skin?

I just recently started using tamanu oil, and while I love what it does to my skin the scent is a little potent. I'm also interested in what oils are anti-bacterial because I think I have foliculitus happening on my chin. Thanks for your help.

Love and accept yourself for exactly who you are right now.

100% clear, if I follow the diet.

I like jojoba oil quite a bit! It doesn't clog my pores but i will say that sometimes it seems to "sit" on my skin rather than sink in. if i have a really bad dry patch I will use olive oil. It has never caused a break out but I am still apprehensive about applying it all over my face.

...I've also heard good things about grapeseed oil. anyone try that?
