Do you think if I got some jojoba and used it during the day (can't at night, need the full effects of my cream) I could go back to washing my face twice a day?
I think you could, but as someone previously mentioned, be careful what you are using is not irritating your skin. For a while I also could only use water. Every cleanser I've tried has irritated my skin (it's sensitive, acne prone and also I think I have rosacea). The only thing I can use to remove my makeup is Pond's makeup remover cloths (not the exfoliating ones, and the Target knockoff works just as well if not better.) I wouldn't even use those if I didn't have to wear makeup. I just use water the rest of the time unless I really need to cleanse.
Thanks to the original poster for mentioning jojoba oil. I forgot how good it can be for the skin and scalp. It's one of the few things I can use. It hasn't cleared my skin so far though. HTH
