This oil is a beautiful combination of light (jojoba) and heavy (rose hip seed) carrier oils, so it gives me the perfect medium consistency. After I wash my face, I leave my skin slightly damp as I apply the Beauty Oil. I use this instead of a moisturizer right now because I have found t hat the high level of emulsifiers in most creams clog my pores. So until I find one that doesn’t (or launch my own!), this oil does the trick. Also, there are no essential oils in the RMS Beauty Oil. I can’t use any fragrance, either natural or synthetic, because it breaks me out.
