    I like bio-oil personally (the proper stuff is a ton nicer than the cheaper ones though, and it really seems to help with stretching-although I will mention I had a LOT of scarring on the lobe i'm currently stretching, so I did get it mainly for that reason). I've never tried jojoba, although I do like the way it feels on skin. I think a lot depends on your skin type also, but that may just be me. Never tried emu oil, don't really want to!
    Current: Double nostrils, philtrum, nipple. Various cartilage, 9/16'' lobes.
    Retired: Nipple, navel x4, wrist, nape, MD, tongue web x2, lower lip piercings x4, nostril, helix, lobe piercings, septum, cheek piercings.
    4 tattoos.

    What is my life for and what am I going to do with it? I don't know and I'm afraid. I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want.

    Yeah the bad part about emu oil is it's pretty gross! Especially when it gets cold and gets chunks in it... ugh. But it makes my lobes feel so nice!

    I have heard of bio-oil. It seems like that game from when I was a kid, pokemon, gotta catch them all lol. I have a little bit of scar tissue, like teeeny tiny, which is a miracle. I'm sensitive to strong smells. I think I'm mainly looking for something to massage and stretch with, make them nice and stretchy. I think I will start with Emu and try it out.

    I'm veggie, so it's purely personal preference. Tbh I react to a fair bit unfortunately. I used to use coconut oil, but it's meant to melt on body contact-I have raynauds, I could hold it for a good while and it would still be solid xD.

    A year ago that would have had me running. Emu oil used to creep me out. Now that I've been desensitizing myself for the horrors of medical school, it is slightly disconcerting how little that bothers me.

    I'm very reactive to things, it is why I am leery of holey buttr especially. My skin is prissy. Coconut oil, I have used but just didn't do it for me. I looked up your condition, ouch, and to live in such a cold climate on top of it.

    Haha yeah, to be honest if I really thought about it it would put me off but I just try not to think about what it actually is when I'm using it. :P

    Hmm, Holey butt'r is quite soothing, it's not particularly heavy, but I can understand your reticence. Tbh it's a bit hit and miss, I keep meaning to get some shea butter for my lobes, but just haven't got round to it. Heh, just one of those things, even living somewhere warmer wouldn't really help;gloves don't :3

    Shea butter is pretty thick. I guess part of it is what you want it for.
