The last non-natural beauty product to go was my facial moisturizer. I started using a product from Alba but it has the consistency of cold cream and I have oily skin. Does anyone have a product recommendation for an oil-free moisturizer for oily skin?

I make my own with 1 cup melted shea butter mixed with 1/3 cup avocado oil and a few drops of vitamin E oil(you can add any essential oil you like but make sure its a pure essential oil)...whip once its cool and store in container with a lid.  I know it sounds funny to use oil on an oily face but it works beautifully.  A little goes a long way.  I use it for all over skin care on the whole family.  Good luck!  Happy Green Living!

Sesame oil mixed with a favorite, non irritating essential oil is another great moisturizer

I use (and swear by) Apricot oil blended with essential oils. Generally Neroli, Rose or Geranium. I'm 47 and my skin has never been better! I agree with Stephanie, a little goes a long way and organic and pure is the only way to go.

Greetings. I am prone to dry/oily skin. I have tried many things without success. But, I have finally found something that works for me. I use a tiny bit of 100% pure organic jojoba oil! I noticed if I put too much then it will be oily, but a small amount goes a long way and once the skin sucks it in, it doesn't feel oily at all. I currently use the Aubrey's Organics brand.
