You’re all gonna think I’m nuts, but I use safflower oil as a moisturizer at night.  I have combination skin (super oily T-zone, dry everywhere else) that’s really acne prone and SUPER sensitive.  Benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid break me out in rashes and everything else seems to either cause a reaction and/or make my skin either too oily or too dry.  Yes, I know, putting oil on your skin to treat oily skin seems weird, but I’ve been using it for over a month now, and my skin is never shiny during the day and I rarely use makeup.  Then at night, I wash my face with a gentle cleanser and apply a thin layer of saff. oil to my skin.  I let it sit for a few minutes and then gently blot the leftover oil off my face.  My face is a little shiny for a few minutes after that, but by the time I wake up the next morning, my skin is soft and neither oily nor dry.

my nose & chin are my oiliest parts, and used to get an awful oily sheen my mid-day that no blotting or powder would cover.

I tried all sorts of primers, and eventually started using milk of magnesia as a primer on my oily places after showering (and washing with neutrogena salycilic acud wash). The stuff is amazing. A little bit on a makeup sponge goes forever, locks my makeup in place, and banishes oil. I swear it’s minimized my pores too.

I transfer a little bit from the big unflavoured bottle into a film canister so it looks like a makeup product. A $4 bottle I bought a year ago is still barely 1/2 empty.
