Olive Oil as a Moisturizer?

Has anybody here used Olive Oil on their oily/acne prone skin for a long period of time? If so, any positive results? Any allergic reactions? Breakouts? Or pure bliss?

There's a ton of info on this in the stickied Omega 3-6-9 topic at the top of this forum. Just search for olive oil.

i used to wash my face with my normal cleanser, then put EXTRA virgin olive oil on my face, go shower, and let the steam open my pores as i rub the EVOO into my skin.

i had absolutely no problems what so ever.

didn't dry me out, kept my nicely moisturized.

it actually made my skin tone more even, but didn't do a whole lot on the acne front, so i curbed that regimen and started with a new one.

but i must say this again: EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL.

Oils cause small clogged pores in the center of my forehead. No problems elsewhere though. Works great. Apply with wet fingers or to wet skin to apply thinly.
