EMU oil as moisturizer for acneic skin?

My skin is clear most of the time but I got a sample of EMU oil and within a day I had a couple of acne cysts. Could be coincidence but I'm wondering if anyone prone to acne uses this as moisturizer and if so, how do you distribute it on your face without overdoing it?

    Might be coincidence. Most acne lesions are forming under the skin for up to 2 years before they erupt.

    I am very acne prone, and I can use emu as a moisturizer. I only need it in the dead of winter and I use very little...one drop for my whole face. I get better distribution by mixing it with hyaluronic acid...a little blob of HA in my palm, with 1 drop of emu, mixed and patted on my skin, works very well to get a very light moisturization.
