interfere with other ptroduct absorption?
I have combo, adult acne prone skin. I 've started a treatment for the acne which has helped immensely with the acne. But has left my skin so dry it feels like I can barely move my face. So,I was recommended this product to use mixed with a moisturizer over my usual treatment. It has helped. But,a week later,still pretty dry. I normally use a light layer of jojoba oil under the treatment. It is much lighter and is not supposed to be pore clogging. I was thinking of eliminating the jojoba and just using this under my treatment and also mix with moisturizer. Any thoughts on if this may interfere with absorption of benzoyl peroxide treatment or if that may be too much?

I do not think this oil is heavier than jojoba oil at all. I find this oil lighter than 100% natural oils. Because benzoyl peroxide interact with retinoids, it will make those anti-aging effect in the oils useless without proper usage schedule. However, I do not think it will harm the moisturizing effect of these oils.
Here are some list of interacting ingredients.
In case you are interested, here is how to use retinoids and benzoyl peroxide together. Basically, it suggests you to use the benzoyl peroxide in the morning and any retinoid product at night.

The reading I've done usually recommends that you apply face oils after you've applied other serums and other products (but before sunscreen). The logic is that the oil can act as a barrier and preventing other products from getting absorbed. (This is probably the case because a lot of skin products are water-based.)
This may actually help! I had scars on my face and you can hardly recognize them after using this oil. Everyone's skin is different but this is definitely worth a try! I am telling you it is amazing.
I prefer to use Josie Maran's argan oil light combined with Origins day cream. Not only do I have wayyy fewer breakouts, but my acne AND dry skin have cleared up totally!

I have the same issue, but i use clindamycin for my acne and it has not interfered, if anything, it has helped calm down the redness and dryness from the acne medication.
Ask for a sample and try it! Good luck!!!
Normally, with skin treaments and serums, you use them under your moisturizer. I would try this. Also, since this product absorbs so nicely, I would suggest letting the first layer soak in, and then adding another layer if you still have problems with dryness. The biggest difference I noticed with effectiveness, is when I started using a hydrating toner before my skin treaments and this oil. Toner helps prep the skin to take in moisture.
