COCOK BGT BUAT YANG PUNYA BERUNTUSAN PARAH DI DAHI!

pernah ngalamin beruntusan yang super duper parah dan susah bgt ilangnya sampe berbulan-bulan karena ternyata ada bbrpa skincare yang jd makanannya malassezia. dan ini worth it parah. kaya cuma sebulan udh ilang aja beruntusannya. wajib banget coba. dam karena ini oil jadi gak buat kulit kering

combination AcneEczemaAnti-Aging+ 3
The only oil that doesn't break me out.

I've always had problems with my skin breaking out at the slightest hint of anything that moisturizes. This seems to be the only emollient that I can put on my face without getting pimples all over my face. I have eczema so peeling, irritated skin is a problem for me, but squalane doesn't aggravate it at all.

I'd advise using it sparingly in the AM though unless you want your face to look oily. I slather this on me every night first thing after my shower, then continue with the rest of my routine. I wake up each morning with smooth, peel-free skin! This has become a staple for me.

dry AcneBlackheadsPores+ 1
Perfect for my dry, acne prone skin!

I like to use this one when my skin is feeling extra dry and my regular moisturizer just doesn't cut it for me (like in the winter months, if I've had a reaction to something or after a clay mask). I love it since it keeps my skin feeling hydrated and moisturized without it feeling oily or breaking me out!
When I first got it I applied a bit too much, not knowing you really need just the tiniest amount to moisturize you entire face+neck, so I used to wake up the next morning looking like I've just dipped my face in oil lmaoo.
I love it now tho!
