I always apply on a damp face, even if I need to add a few pats of water to a dry face or my fingers first. It also helps seal in the moisture!

You put one drop on forehead and one drop on each cheek . It is quite hydrating. You gently work it over your entire face. You really do not need more than this amount of oil

I use this both AM and pm with a moisturizer over. I have combo to dry skin which is more on the dry side with the winter. In the summer ,I may be able to get a way with just a light layer of oil and sunblock. Btw,I use 2 layers where I am dry. Makeup goes over fine and it really seems to help and I've not had breakouts that I would consider increased,maybe even decreased with this.

If you can get a tester, try it before you invest in a full bottle. I have pretty good skin, not prone to breakouts, but every time I have applied this before sleep, I have awakened with several big, nasty yellowheads surrounded by red swellings, usually on my nose or my chin. I love how smooth and soft this leaves my skin (it seems to absorb and hydrate better than argan oil) but I can't continue using it.

I do - and it seems to work well...because using it first, you gain the benefits of the omegas and other wonderful properties. Usually sunscreen is put over serums - unless you find a sunscreen that is multi-tasking like The Youth As We Know It™ Anti-Aging Moisture Lotion SPF 30 by Bliss. I usually wear this exclusively in the summer.

I've found the best way is to apply 3-4 drops to a damp or wet face, right after cleansing. Or I've even wet my fingers a tad and patted on my dry face before applying.
It allows the moisture to be "sealed" in and spreads much better. Gently pressing it all over your face works better than rubbing, and is easier on your skin.

Try adding a drop to a lotion based moisturizer. I use a daily lotion for the SPF protection and had better results when I combined the two. I use the oil alone around eyes and neck - but blend it when I use on my face. My face is not overly dry - but in winter it always feels that way - this has made a big difference for me. GOOD LUCK!

Question
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?

answer 1
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.
http://www.drugs.com/drug-interactions/benzoyl-peroxide-topical-index.html?filter=2&generic_only=

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.)

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.
