RCW converts- progress?

Anyone tried both emu and jojoba oil? If so, which did you end up sticking with and why?

So, to sum up, I'm not sure if emu truly wasn't as moisturizing as jojoba, because my dryness could have been due to other factors, but I'm happy with jojoba now. And it's cheaper and vegetarian.

How long does the C serum stay fresh? Do you mix it daily, once every couple days? Do you keep it in the fridge? Thanks.

I think I've made it twice in the last 4 months; I'm not sure because I did some switching of bottles and may not be remembering exactly.

I think I'll start with jojoba since it's also readily available on the ground. Thanks!

Yes, some people use Retin A daily or occasionally while doing this regimen.
