I started using jojoba oil as my facial moisturizer and LOVED it--for about 2 weeks. Then I developed a lot of clogged pores--not really pimples just bumpy skin where there were clogs. Would rose hip oil work better for me? Anything else I should try?

I've had great luck with rose hip seed oil. I also love carrot seed oil but its harder to find. I find that coconut oil makes my face feel icky.

The oil that I make for my skin is about 2/3 jojoba, 1/3 olive oil...and I add an EO (or three), too. I've not experienced clogs, but everyone's skin is different. Maybe try combining a few oils and/or using less to moisturize?

When I apply mine, I put just three drops in my hands and rub them together, quickly run my hands under water and rub it on my face.

Hope you find something that works for you - it is good stuff!
