Shea butter. It actually helps control my oil.

Re: A really GOOD moisturizer

Olive oil (cold pressed extra virgin olive oil is the type I use). After you wash your face (do this at night), rub some olive oil on your skin for a few seconds then rinse off...It'll take you a few splashes to rinse most of the oil off your skin, and it'll feel like a tad is left, but by morning it'll be absorbed and lovely.

Re: A really GOOD moisturizer

I use to use extra virgin olive oil. It breaks me out.

Re: A really GOOD moisturizer

Be careful using olive oil. It breaks me out horribly, too.

Re: A really GOOD moisturizer

Olive oil will break you out, but jojoba oil is perfect for people with acne because not only does it moisturize, but it actually desolves the sebum trapped in the pores. I love the stuff! And you can get it at any health food store.
