    I have always used jojoba oil with great success and will have to try grapeseed oil too. It really helps not to use a ton of makeup, which clogs pores.

    I did a lot of research regarding which carrier oils were best for oily skin. Grapeseed and neem definitely fall into that category. Any oils high in linoleic acid are great.

    Love coconut oil. I have grapeseed oil and like that too. Haven’t tried some of the other carrier oils, but would like to.
