Exclamation Jojoba/camellia oil- Too oily for acne??

Hey, I was wondering if jojoba or camellia oil would be too oily for people with troubled skin, who have sensitive, combination oily and dry skin, w/ acne and such? Does it clog pores? Share your Jojoba and camellia stories!!! Thanks, appreciate it

Re: Jojoba/camellia oil- Too oily for acne??

I have oily T-zone but can use jojoba and camellia oil without any problems.

I use Silkia camellia oil every day and when I first started I had a few pimples on my face - the oil didn't make it worse. I actually think it helped heal them and faded the red marks along with Epidermx microderabrasion.

I like camellia oil better because it's a bit more moisturizing, has more anti-aging properties and gives the skin more of a radiant glow. It was able to get rid of some fine lines under my eyes and jojoba couldn't.

Some people did have an initial breakout using camellia or jojoba oil.

Thanks waterlily! Besides the 'oily t-zone', what kind of skin type do you have?

My skin is dry and sensitive on the cheeks, and prone to clogged pores.The T-zone and chin area is prone to breakouts.

Re: Jojoba/camellia oil- Too oily for acne??

I don't think I like the camellia oil for my skin. But my skin doesn't need much moisture. Everyone says, even if your skin is oily, you still need moisture...well, my skin is a billion times better when I don't use a moisturizer. So I go by how my skin reacts to things...and the camellia oil felt clogging to me. However, it isn't supposed to clog the pores, and I am sure their are people who can confidantly say it doesn't clog pores...but all I can say is my skin felt congested when I used it.
Haven't tried jojoba oil, sorry.
