Starter oil for oily girls
A bit of context: I have both PIE and PIH, a severe hormonal acne issue I just got under control, and normal to oily skin. I have only used this for about 2 weeks and that's not enough to see huge results. This isn't like winning the lottery, more like a long term investment. And it's a pretty cheap investment.

Okay so here's the deal, when you have an oily face, the last thing you wanna do is add oil. Right? Guess what, the high linoleic acid content of this oil actually balances out the oleic acid content of your sebum. It tells your skin, "Hey I got this dehydration issue, chill tf out on the oil production ok??"
Plus it's for lightening acne scars and calming inflammation (a.k.a redness, acne marks).
❌ Minor blemishes on the first few days. I'm assuming this is my skin adjusting to it. No breakouts or negative reactions since then.
❌ Minor smell. I don't know about you, but if my acne issue was bad enough, I would'nt give two huffs on a bit of smell. You'll get used to it.
