    Whats the best minimalist moisturiser?

    Primal Fuel
    Fragrances irritate my skin, so even moisturisers that claim to be "natural" or "organic" I avoid. I've been using jojoba oil for a while which works fine (it seems to be a popular choice on this forum). I tried extra virgin olive oil for a few days, put some in my hair at night, washed it off the next morning, which made my hair less dry. It also has the benefit of being significantly cheaper than jojoba oil.

    Is olive oil better than jojoba oil? Is there any good evidence of which is the most beneficial for skin (you can get lots of hits googling, but its all pseudo science from what I saw)? So what do you guys use?

    I've used coconut oil, jojoba, camellia, and shea butter, depending on the season and how dry my skin is.

    Jojoba is closer to your natural sebum than olive oil. Personally, I am in love with coconut oil.

    Coconut oil. I use jojoba right now, but for some reason my dry skin looks dry again a few hours later. That doesn't happen with coconut oil. If olive oil works for you, I'd use that. I don't think it makes a whole heck of a lot of difference.

    In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.
