I use Desert Essences jojoba oil. I get a great price on it at Trader Joe's. I actually mix it with tea tree oil and lavender oil and use it as a moisturizer. I'm very pleased with it. The jojoba acts as a carrier oil, allowing other things to penetrate more easily. At first, it takes a little getting used to. It kind of feels oily when you put it on, but it absorbs very quickly. I just put it on after washing my face and then go get dressed, fix my hair, etc., for five minutes before putting makeup on (mineral makeup is awesome, btw). I like to use it at night before using a 2.5% benzoyl peroxide gel; I figure it helps the BP penetrate a bit better. Just remember, a little goes a long way, one or two drops is all that is needed. I don't actually think it's cleared my skin any more, per se, but I do think it's better than any other moisturizer I've used, so my skin is clearer than if I didn't use anything (too dry and sensitive) or if I used any other moisturizer. Hopefully that makes as much sense in writing as it did in my head. :bouncing:
