I use the Tisserand brand.
It's not HG material but I haven't found anything better than this yet.
I've used this for around half a year now (on and off because I tried other products too).
At first I didn't like it and I felt like it was irritated my skin slightly and it was too greasy. (I get super oily on my t-zone and forehead). After time, the irritation went away. And to deal with the greasiness, this is what I do : After washing my face with water (& cleanser), I don't dry my face with a towel. I let the water absorb into my skin slightly (around 1 min) and then I apply a couple drops of jojoba oil whilst my face is still wet. I find that this leaves my skin feeling a lot more hydrated than just applying the oil to my face.

One of the cons is that it doesn't hydrate the dry patches on my skin as well as I would like. I try applying more to dry areas on my face but it just gets greasy but the skin is still dry. Also, I don't like the packaging of the Tisserand brand because when I pour some oil out , it leaks to the sides of the bottle and it gets really messy..and not very hygienic either.
As an overall moisturiser, it's pretty decent though. I say it's worth giving it a try. Make sure you use it for a while to be sure if it works for you or not.
