I use argan and maracuja oil for hair and skin, and monoi oil for hair and body (and as a perfume oil).  I also have body oil wah from L'Occitane.

I use 1/3 castor oil, 2/3 jojoba oil with 10 drops of lavender essential oil.  This is to cleanse my face once a day.  For moisturizer I use either jojoba oil or argan oil.

Yes. Aside from the skincare line I use, I also use a variety of oils for different homemade masks, weekly treatments, etc. I like to do a few times a week. I use many different ones depending on what I want to do. Sweet almond, argan, coconut, frankencense, avocado to name a few.

I just started an all natural skin care routine ! I'm prone to acne even at 30 now and have on,y been using this for a few weeks and my skin looks healthier . Once a day use mixture of castor oil and extra virgin olive oil ( just eye ball it more castor oil than Evoo) , rub onto face and then use warm water as warm as you can handle and soak a rag and lay over your face to steam . Then rinse rag and wipe off face . Then I use which hazel with lavender to tone my face .  Then a spray bottle with grapefruit essential oil andante just water to scrappy to face . And last jojoba oil for moisturizer . Works wonders !

 I have a slight oil addiction... lol I use Jojoba, Castor, Apricot Kernel, Coconut and Tea Tree Oil for hair masks. Rosehip Seed Oil for under my eyes and extra moisture in other face areas. Castor Oil for dark circles and eyelashes. Sweet Almond, Avocado, coconut and Apricot Kernel for my lotion mix (my son used the same thing).

 Argh I hear ya. I'm 24 and I still get breakouts. It sucks and I hate it. That's why i'm trying oils, natural skincare works so much better on my super sensitive skin.

I have tried everything from expensive Clinique to oil of Olay and nothing worked until now . I will post the directions for what I have been using . It is working really good and can be tweaked for you personally . That's the beauty of it ;)
