I stopped using my facial moisturizer and replaced it with organic jojoba oil. This doesn't make my face feel oily or weighed down at all; it feels light and my skin loves the stuff. Also it will last all day. Oh and it will last and last and last. A tiny amount goes a long way. You only need like a tiny drop and you can wipe it over your whole face.

Also I think if your face is getting oily very fast it's probably because you are keeping it too dry. I did this with my face for years until I came to this board and people told me differently. I didn't believe them but tried what they said anyway and omg it really worked. For years I would wash my face with soap and hot water 2-3 times a day and would not moisturize. This just made my skin very oily.

Now I use the oil cleansing method in the morning and will wash my face with mild soap in the shower at night. And then I moisturize the corners of my mouth and area around my nose after the shower.

Oh and I wear makeup after moisturizing too. Moisturizer doesn't get in the way of the makeup.

when i was on the regimen i still wore makeup. i would say after you moisturize, blot your face with a tissue, and then apply your makeup. after applying, brush on a setting powder lightly. i use ELF high def, along with blotting sheets to touch up through the day. oily skin is a pain..i understand. i've had oily skin since puberty.


natural is beautiful. but glamour is fun.
