i have a very oily skin and because i am using the regimen my skin is very dry yet the oil tends to sit on the surface of my skin. can i use the jojoba oil to balance my skin or would it make me break out more?

Just for complete honesty's sake, I haven't found jojoba oil to do a thing to stop my oil production, but it does wonders if you are dry.

We're all in this together.

Jojoba oil is pretty hit and miss, it works for some, not for others. I use it sometimes, but it doesn't absorb very well. I don't know how people use it during the day...


I've slowed down my oil production by being a lot more gentle, washing briefly only twice a day and by blotting away any excess. Don't use overly warm water either. Just tepid/lukewarm is better for oily complexions.

i started using jojoba oil just on my nose for close to 1 month and it has not reduced oil production on this part but i have however noticed that it has dissolved and reduced the amount of blackheads on my nose. But it definitely did not break me out.
