Lightbulb burt's bees, again

well-has occurred to me that horrible breakout may not be due to burt's but instead to use of jojoba oil as moisturizer after washing with burt's, since even eating oily foods makes me break out if it gets on my face. Therefore am going to keep using burt's lettuce soap and moisturize if needed with Neutrogena's Sensitive skin moisturizer and will keep you all posted.

sorry, i just fail to understand why people with oily/acne skin needs to moisturise. To me, the 4 hours after getting out the shower is the best for me. Having dry, unshiney skin. I tried moisturizing and it made me break out a bit. I think its half psyhchological cause i just don't feel comfortable having a film of oil on my face as oppose to having it breathe.

I have those mixed feelings too ... on one hand oil causes breakouts (sometimes) and when I moisturize I feel like I'm "feeding" the acne .. on the other hand, though, I've been told that you kinda have to "trick" your face ... when it's too dry it makes more oil come out to compensate and you'll break out .. supposedly if you moisturize the right way your skin won't produce excess oil ... I'm not sure which ones true ..

I liked the skin toning effects of jojoba, but I quit using it too. I couldn't take the oily film it left on my face, and I just couldn't get past the idea that it might cause blackheads in the long run. I'm doing fine without it. The BHA is enough to keep my face at an even balance of moisture without getting too dry or too oily.

I would think that southern California would be a good place to find Burt's Bees. I'm sure that many stores in your area supply it. You should look on the Burt's Bees website to locate a store.

Because if your skin is too dry, then your glands go into overdrive and actually produces more oil.
