Jojoba Oil for Oily Skin

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

So about a month ago now, I wroteΒ a post called An Oil for Oily Skin?”. In this, I tested out the theory that people with this particular skin type should actually slather more oil across their face in order to counteract their natural imbalances. Sounds a bit odd right?

Well, at first I must admit I was sceptical too. After spending years running a mile away from anything which had the word “oil” in the title, I have to say, I’m a complete convert! Since using The Body Shop’s Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil, my skin feels more hydrated, has a more obvious glow, and doesn’t seem to get nearly as shiny. Result! I decided to take things one step further and invest in another natural oil for moisturising purposes. My choice? Jojoba oil.

Jojoba Oil (pronounced “ho-ho-ba”) is an extract of the jojoba plant, and has all sorts of wonderful beauty benefits. Packed with vitamins and minerals, 100% natural, and ideal for sensitive skin, you can’t really get much better for us oily ladies. You can use this stuff for pretty much anything, from conditioning hair, removing makeup, moisturising your legs after shaving, and helping soothe acne. Because of the particular minerals it contains, it’s suitable for all skin types and will bring individual benefits to each one!

I personally like to use this in place of a moisturiser before bedtime. After washing my face with some Clinique Liquid Facial Soap, I then apply a light layer of Dr. Organic Coconut Oil Elixir Serum, which I leave to sink in for 10 minutes. Then just before I go to sleep, I take two pea sized drops of jojoba oil, rub it between my fingers, and gently dab it all over my face, particularly focusing on areas I tend to get more dryness!

This little routine I’ve been following has really given my skin a bit of life. It feels softer, more plump, and very hydrated. And it hasn’t made me oily at all! Plus, I love the fact that I’m using such a natural ingredient.

I’ve been using 100% Natural Australian Jojoba from The Jojoba Company, available at Holland & Barrett.

What do you guys think of using natural oils as skincare? Has it worked for you? And what are your tips for combatting oily skin? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I love that theory and followed it for a few years now . I rotate between rosehip seed oil and almond oil though I like jojoba mixed with a bit of avocado oil as a 15 min oil mask during winter, and I pay any residue off. Love that you decided to blog about it, so important for people to know πŸ™‚ will try jojoba by the company you mentioned, the bottle seems super convenient! X

    1. I’ve heard a lot about almond and rose hip oil so I think I’ll maybe try those next! Thank you, I’m glad others agree with the theory too. The bottle is very convenient although I have to occasionally wipe it with a tissue as some of the oil can start to spill out. Thanks for reading πŸ™‚ xxx
