Hello!

 

I'm 5 weeks into the Regimen.  I ordered more moisturizer which should arrive in a few days (hopefully), so I've just been scraping out the remnants of the one I have now and using extra jojoba.  Is this okay to do?  I did notice my face is a little redder than it normally is.  I just don't feel like dropping money on a drugstore moisturizer.

 

Thanks!

for the sake of not adding any variables i'd keep doing that, yes, but its strange that your face seems redder, i would have thought using more jojoba would be extra moisturizing but maybe its only as effective when it has dans moisturizer as a base to deliver it into the skin better? strange :)

Agreed, it is strange...I might also need to up the jojoba more than I thought, since I'm running so low.  Probably need more than 6-8 drops.  Or I guess I could always reapply it!

I've been using more jojoba oil lately for a moisturiser (at night) just because I really like it. It's probably about 8-10 drops... maybe more I'm not sure. But I just gently pat it over my face and might use moisturiser later on in the night if I feel I need it. It is strange that you say your skin is redder but I don't think it's anything to worry about. Maybe if you've been rubbing it in, that's causing your skin to look redder? Just a thought.

 

Hopefully you have your new moistuirser by now (or will have it soon) so it won't be a problem anyway :)
