OCM- oops?

I've been using mineral oil instead of castor oil. Is this why my skin feels oily again?

D'oh!:-|

    Yes, but I thought that might be from a change of skin cream (though it's non-comedogenic).

    According to http://www.zerozits.com/Articles/acnedetect.htm#inglist , mineral oil is not comedogenic at all. But it's like vaseline, almost impossible to remove. Even though my skin HATED OCM, I must suggest that you use a botanical oil instead of petroleum based products. Because they are easier to remove and simply more nourishing.

    Good luck :)

    Thanks, Domino. I went back to a castor oil base and things improved almost immediately.

    Nothing gives me cystic acne like mineral oil. :(
    When are women going to face the fact that they don’t know their own bodies as well as men who have heard things?

    Oh, it was gross! Like....these bumps that just appeared everywhere, then stayed. :cwm10:

    The castor really helped. I used more right at first, but I'm back to a blend now.

    Speaking of which, how is jojoba in the mix? Anyone recommend it or hate it?

    TIA.

    Yes. Yes, it is. It's the whole Tick team: Bat Manuel, Arthur, Tick, and Captain Liberty.

    All of whom I love.
