i have been using decleor products for a while now, and have tried samples of YY oil and their balm and have been finding my skin really oily in the day, however i switched to the neroli and baume essentials and my skin is not as oily!!

i find this realllyyy strange as YY is meant to be best for oily/combo skin but skin seems to prefer neroli!!im still shiney but not 'dripping' /'gleaming' Laughing

i also use cleansing gel/mattifying toner/hydra mat/prologean (for red marks) and the eye cream, ive been told the prologene takes 90 days to see a difference im on about day 30.....(and counting) however im still getting spots/red bumps so this seems to overide the red marks!!

i have also discovered witch hazel for nasty spots!! really helps with the redness and inflamation of the spots.

sorry but i had to share..

I too had a sample of the Neroli and it was wonderful for my oily skin.
At the moment I have been using witch hazel as my morning toner followed by Jojoba oil, then in the evening I love the Apple Cider Vinegar toner.

rosebud

witch hazel really helps and is true, i use to buy tea tree oils stick but it wasnt helping, and buy chance ihad some WH and it works! it also quite cheap which helps!

i find it strange with neroli that is works on my skin, i thought only YY would do the trick.

i have discovered decleor and love natural oils, they smell good.

what does the jojoba oil do?

I was using the Dr Hauschka Normalising Day Oil but found it a little too oily after I had applied it.
The Jojoba moisturizes my skin but regulates oil production throughout the day, it also sinks in a lot quicker that the Dr H NDO.
Since I have been following my current regime my skin has gone from very oily to normal.

Jojoba is also good as an eye make-up remover, in fact you could try mixing some Neroli Essential Oil into the Jojoba Wink
I bought my Jojoba from Neal's Yard for ú7 but I think you can get in cheaper than that, it lasts for ages too Very Happy

Interesting; I'm experiencing the exact same thing with these products....
I still fancy them very much though, but like you I have also been wondering about this hmm

i thought it was only me!

my skin has been really oily, but kept thinking "YY is good for oily skin" but on a whim decided to try the neroli and its sit better on my skin, im still oily but not as much...

Hmmmm -- can one of you ladies post the ingredients of the Neroli oil? I'm nearly thru my latest batch of homemade Y-Y oil so maybe I'll try to make a batch of homemade Neroli instead....

I use it as all 3 actually Laughing
This is the best moisturiser I have ever found!!!
In the evening I put some on some cooton wool to remove my eye make-up, if I have been wearing heavy face make -up then yes I will use to take off face make-up to.
Then I wash as normal using homemade Dr Hauschka Cleansing Cream.
