    Monocled Easy Oil Combo

    Combination skin? Oily skin? Sensitive skin? Some combination of the above? Here is a lightweight, simple and effective morning (or evening) moisturizer!

    I came up w/ this recipe because I needed something to go on under my clear zinc, and I needed it to be lightweight, non aggitating, quick to make and w/o any sort of residue. I hope you enjoy using the following recipe as much as I do.

    For this you will need to gather beforehand:

    • A small sized funnel (easier to drop in ingredients)
    • A small bottle w/ dropper (color is not too important)
    • A glass or plastic mixer
    • A clean 1 tsp
    • A clean 1/4 tsp

    And the recipe is as follows:

    • 1 tsp argan oil
    • 1 1/4 tsp rosehip oil
    • 1-2 drops carrot seed essential oil***
    • 1/4 tsp squalane oil

    1. Placing the funnel over the dropper bottle
    2. Combine the ingredients
    3. Mix and store in a cool dry place.


    Use the dropper to extract a dime sized amount to use on face and chest. The mixture should absorb right into your skin within a few minutes. After that you can top with your ZnO sunscreen of choice. I find that this blend also helps remove some of the famous cast that ZnO sunscreens (even the "clear" ones) tend to leave.

    ***A note on the carrot seed essential oil: It's important not to overdo it w/ the carrot seed oil. It can be irritating in excess, but also (and more importantly) it will smell EXACTLY like a Ricola coughdrop for about 10 minutes after the moisturizer has been on your face. You can ...

    -Omit the carrot seed (better to use it as a night moisturizer if you really don't care for the smell)
    -Substitute it for another essential oil
    -Or just use one drop

    I hope that this recipe finds you well! Shouldn't take more than 5 minutes and you can enjoy a matte, moisturized face for the rest of the day!
