*drumroll*................*clears throat*.............JOJOBA OIL!!! i bought some last week and i've been using it on my hair and it worked great! i saw a guy on youtube who recommended that you use it on your face, and since it closely resembles the oil your face already makes, i decided to give it a try. i've tried everything to get rid of my oily skin (makeup, extra moisture, scrubbing, coppertone sunscreen, various mattifying lotions) and one of them worked....til i tried this! you just mix a little bit of it with your moisturizer (or use it by itself) and it works! i put it to the test today, i work at mcdonalds and i was in the grill with all the heat blowing in my face from the grills, we were busy so i was under stress as well. i was pleasantly surprised to find that i wasn't a greaseball when i got home (4 hours later), i looked the same as i did before i left the house! i tried it yesterday with makeup, but since it absorbs oil, it defeated the purpose. so yeah....looks like i don't need makeup anymore, i might finish out the container i just bought, but other than that it isn't necessary. just thought i'd share this with you guys!

You can get jojoba oil from Whole Foods, most health foods stores, or online. I got mine online from http://www.butters-n-bars.com/index.html.

It sounds very similar or is the OCM. I'm so happy for you. The oily skin monster is something I hate.

Ok well i tried jojoba oil beneath my moisturizer to see if my face would be less greasy. Hmm...not so much. But the plus side is my skin glowed and it felt great. But i will stick to just using it at night before bed.

i moisturize first and then put the oil on, you skin is somewhat oily to the touch, but looking at it it's not shining.

So with your new discovery, may I ask what is your regimen?  Do you still use a cleanser?  I'm in the PJ 12-step program but I might have slip up for some jojoba oil.
