    Smell it and feel it if you can. IMO, too many emu oils are gross...like chicken fat. I really only like the "Ultra" emu made by LBProcessors.com. It's truly and consistently perfect...creamy, non-separating, and odor-free. This site is the cheapest place I've found to buy it (they take off 20% of the listed price at checkout):

    Thanks RedCatWaves. I assume that is best at night. Now I just need to find a moisturizer and sunscreen that work for the day, in this dry and very sunny climate in Colorado (I am actually a Philly native). I use PSF products, but am not sure the moisturizers and sunscreens are highly recommended...

    Look at the skincarecentral site for sunscreens. She imports sunscreens from Europe (where the standards are higher).

    Ultra emu can be used during the day for a lighter moisturizer also. Just mix a drop or two of emu in the palm with a blob of hyaluronic acid and press on the face. Very light.

    I plan to order the emu oil from skincarecentral and just contacted them to ask what sunscreen might be best. Thanks RedCatWaves!!

    Do you use mineral makeup?
