Perfect dry oil

definitely a dry oil, absorbs immediately & leaves no occlusion but perfect light moisture when added to my aloe gel layers nicely under sunscreen etc
the one oil i'm sure has never broken out my overly reactive skin. it's unlikely to be enough on its own but very solid addition

combination PIHAcneBlackheads+ 5

This page needs a major correction. Hemi-Squalane is Chain 13-16 Fatty Acids, fungal acne feeds on Chain 11-24. If fungal acne is your concern, skip this and use The Ordinary Squalane instead. My fungal acne got worse with this product. If fungal acne is not and never will be your issue, then this oil is very cosmetically elegant for oilier skin types. It is probably the lightest, driest "oil" that I have ever used. It sinks in instantly, feels almost like an light oil based serum.

Doesnt work on my face, but works wonder for my hair

doesn't work on my face, as it made my acne problem worse, it leaves a greasy feels afterwards. This product may work for dry skin though, i am not sure. i mean if you're looking for a product that made you look like you need a blotting paper few minutes after applying, then this may be your dream product, lol.

but for my hair, it is a different story.. it gives my hair a fuller look, helps a lot with my frizz. I am on my 6th bottle, and they're all for my hair.
