Post jojoba oil

Hi,

I've heard musings about using jojoba oil as a moisturizer. Just one question..does it clog pores or have a strange odor (like tea tree oil )?

It will not clog pores (it actually helps to open them and keep them clean) and has no odor. I use it and love it. You only need a few small drops at a time and I works well for both oily and dry skin (balances sebum production).

It is actually supposed to help with acne. I have been using it for over 4 months and have seen a major improvement in my skin. I don't use BP anymore. I only use purpose to wash with and then jojoba oil (and my birth control pill) and my face is clear. If you do a search for it you will find lots of information about jojoba oil and the benefits it has on acne.

Question

Ok gang, where are the best places to find this stuff? And the cost of it? From all the info on these boards, it sounds like a simple "must-have" to all our regimens. Awaiting more info.

Thanks for the help everyone...I think that I will seriously look into the jojoba oil if it produces results...and doesn't turn my skin into a piece of sandpaper

Take care all...

Does anyone know the shelf-life of jojoba oil? I bought some probably a year ago, discontinued using it but might want to go back to it. Do I need to buy some new stuff?

i read that it doesn't go "rancid" so i think you're fine to use it.
