    Almond oil is a good moisturizer & will make your skin soft - but it probably doesn't have as many benefits as jojoba oil. It's used primarily as a massage oil. I've found that it doesn't work as well on my face as jojoba oil. Almond oil should be refrigerated after opening & has a shelf life of 6-12 months. Smell it every now & then to make sure it hasn't turned rancid.

    Jojoba will balance oil production, unclog pores, & lift impurities. It has an indefinite shelf life & doesn't have to be refrigerated. It's very much like the sebum our skin produces naturally.

    There are several places to buy jojoba oil online - it's fairly inexpensive - you can get 8 oz. for around $8-12.

    Hazelnut oil is another oil that's good for the face. It's a little thinner than jojoba & has a slight astringent quality, so it's especially good for oily skin. I use a jojoba/hazelnut mix.

    How does this using oil on your face work? Do you leave it on all night, or do you wash it off after a few minutes? I'm just wondering because I used some Vitamin E oil today for the first time and my face felt really greasy, so I ended up rinsing it off.

    If it still feels greasy after 10 minutes, you're using too much oil.

    I've never used just straight Vit. E oil, so I don't know how the consistency compares to jojoba, hazelnut, almond, evening primrose, or borage seed oil.

    I only use 2-4 drops of oil (the size drop that would fall from a small eye-dropper) for my entire face/neck area. A couple of things you can do to make it easier to apply - you can apply while your face is still damp, or you can put the oil in your cupped hand & then add a few drops of water (I use distilled water), rub gently to mix, then apply. After about 10 minutes, the oil should be absorbed, but your skin should feel soft & smooth.

    I apply the oil twice a day - morning & evening - I wash or rinse my face before applying the oil - not after.
