Jojoba Oil Not Working

7 posts in this topic

I have been on regimen for 7 mo. and still get extremely dry skin. I use the equate brand I think of cetaphil Cream and put few drops of jojoba everytime I do it. Am I using the wrong moisturizer. I heard Dans sucks so im gonna steer clear of that.

How many drops? I assume you mean 3 by a few. Use more! I use tons of the stuff :)

I've never used Equate, but Cetaphil is really good. I don't know how identical they are but maybe you should consider giving cetaphil a try. It is my miracle PM moisturizer. I wake up feeling my skin to be really soft.

Evening Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%

As my skin is quite dry/flaky, after cleansing my face I get a palm full of jojoba oil and then gently massage on my face for about 2minutes. I even do it near my eyes (I have the closed) as my eye skin is quite dry. I rinse that off with water then pat dry with a towel then after...say 5mins, apply my BP wait 10-15mins put moisturiser on +2-3drops as that's all I need of jojoba oil and my skin feels soo much better. The jojoba oil "massage" as you like helps to get rid of flakes plus moisturise a crap load!

My skin feels so much better after doing that and I have less flakes!

*Your face may feel a bit oily after washing it off with water but don't rub that off, aslong as you don't have excess oil running down your face.. The oily feeling goes away after you apply your BP. Normally my face doesn't feel too oily but soft and smooth instead :)*

Use Cetaphil dry to very dry moisturizing cream. Nothing else has ever worked for me and I've experimented with the regimen for 10 years.

Ok cant seem to find a balance it's either too oily or too dry. :(



It doesn't have a dropper so I cant do that. I just dump it in my hand.
