jojoba oil sucks

-bought a bottle at trader joes for $7
-washed my face with neutrogena rapid clear oil control (which works GREAT for oily and shiny skin, gets the shine and oil completely off)
-put ONE drop on a cotton pad and spreaded it on my face and it was HORRIBLE it made my face so oily, greasy and extra shiny i had to go return it

Re: jojoba oil sucks

jojoba oil can be tricky if not used correctly. Make sure it's 100% pure jojoba oil with no other added ingredient. Dab a very small amount evenly on your face. Rub it in thoroughly, this can easily take 5-10 minutes. After that wipe off the excess on your face with a kleenex. You will notice a difference after using it this way. It will balance your skin, making your face produce less oil. Your face should not look greasy at all. If it does then you have too much on and need to wipe off the excess.

Re: jojoba oil sucks

were u applying it in the daytime? I don't think this is a great thing to use if you were about to go somewhere out in public because you will look all greasy, at least I would. I have really oily skin so the only time I would apply it would be only before I go to bed. sure, even though I don't think its one of the best products I've used, I'll put it on at night to give it time to see results and to make sure I'm benefiting something from it. and I always thought it was best to use fingertips to apply and massage into skin for a few minutes. the first time I applied jojoba oil I was like what the **** this stuff is not helping it made my face oily and greasy!! but you have to be patient and use it in a way that u think works best for urself. I think you shouldn't have returned so quickly though.
