I love olive oil as a moisturizer. Just be sure to keep the bottle sanitary and not to use it beyond its expiration date. Also, application is different than other topical moisturizers because it is an oil, not a cream or lotion. The method I use I call " fingertipping". Tilt the bottle and get a few drops of oil on your ( washed ) fingertip. Touch your fingertips together to dispense the oil among them and then gently press your fingertips across your skin. Don't rub or smear. Just gently press the oil, adding small amounts as needed. It doesn't take much and your skin will feel soft and look dewy, not shiny.
