Edited to add: Oils tend to be VERY your-mileage-may-vary. I know plenty of people that swear by coconut oil for perfect skin and that would very well cause a volcano erruption on *my* skin. There are a few things to take into consideration, like the composition of the oil itself. So please try several before writing ALL oils off. It took me trying many different kinds before Jojoba. I'm glad I kept looking. ----------I already reviewed jojoba oil in the unlisted brand category. For whatever reason, Desert Essence was not popping up as an option. So for all of you out there reading this...Desert Essence is my favorite brand to buy jojoba oil from. I've tried quite a few. It drives me nuts because in theory you would assume all oils are created equally. But I do notice a big difference between organic and non-organic jojoba oil. I do notice a difference between brands. Part of me wonders if maybe a few companies are being dishonest about what's in their products. The jojoba oil I bought from Leven Rose and Rocky Mountain Oils was so much thicker. HOWEVER there are a few variations in production to consider; such as pressing method, how the oil is extracted, and how it is preserved. The organic jojoba oil from Desert Essence is very light and liquid-y. It does not clog my pores, which is VERY significant given EVERY OTHER OIL has clogged my pores if left on as a moisturizer. I liked grapeseed and mineral oil because they didn't break me out when used as a makeup remover. That's better than what I can say for coconut or olive oil (yikes). But they'd still break me out if I didn't follow up with a cleanser. I think the reason jojoba oil does not break me out is because it isn't a true oil. It's actually a wax ester. Jojoba oil is closest to the skin's composition than any other. Additionally, it can dissolve sebum.For what its worth - all oils seem to remove MU equally. I've never found one that took off long-wear foundation easier than another. Jojoba oil just happens to remove everything, doubles as a moisturizer, and never breaks me out. I can't really ask for more.I've repurchased 3 times as I write this review. I will continue to do so.

I was using the organic jojoba oil from acne.org. I have acne prone sensitive skin but the jojoba oil worked wonders. I loved it. Great for a glow, hydrates skin, great makeup remover.I decided to buy the organic desert essence when I ran out of my other jojoba oil. Big mistake, this broke me out. My face had cystic acne. I don't think the desert essence organic version is 100% organic. I ordered my jojoba from acne.org. This is what happens when you try to save money. NOT worth it. Now it will take weeks for my skin to heal and lots of fade gel to get rid of the blemishes. So disappointing because my skin was doing great before I bought this garbage.

I used this for my hair because I'm scared to use it on my face since I'm extremely acne prone and most things break me out. It made my hair soooooo soft and it looks really healthy. I have long highlighted hair and it gets really dry and i've tried many different things- olive oil, almond oil, coconut oil, but none of those really seemed to make a difference like jojoba has. Ive been rubbing some into my hair before i shower and then shampooing it out with a natural shampoo. Thats it. I haven't even used a conditioner after because i don't need to. The only downside is the price. i got an aura cacia brand bottle for $12 in an organic section of the supermarket. Maybe i can find it cheaper online because im going to continue using this on my hair. Oh its also great for an all over body moisturizer after a shower. So smooth.

This works great on my scalp and hair. I'm told by a doctor that it is the thing that most closely mimics hair sebum and in my view what could be better than that to keep my hair healthy. My scalp used to be dry and itchy from high lift coloring and now it feels normal.

A "friend" of a cool blogger and hairstylist living in Paris swore that jojoba oil works wonders on removing blackheads and making your skin trouble free. She went into detail describing the wonders of this oil. It was totally out of my character to by into silly blog comments like these. I became obsessed: I needed JOJOBA and jojoba needed ME. I was an excellent convert. I cleansed. I moisturized. All with 100% pure jojoba. The change appeared slowly for me. After 6 months on "the method" my pale, always so dry cheeks were infested with ACNE! YES, ACNE! :´-( The surface spongy, full of blackheads, pored, oily, irritated. My always oily t-zone worse than normal with more (!!) blackheads. Since I refused to use Roaccutane I was recommended Differin gel acne treatment and was told to endure at least 4 months before seeing results. This horrible gel made my skin even worse, cystic, more scars and inflammation everywhere. I stopped and started my own regimen. In the beginning the only thing clearing my skin was washing with PH sensitive Dove Sensitive Skin Unscented Beauty Bar. It took me 1 year (!!!) to get my skin in some sort of balance. Nothing is ever the same again. I suffer awful red acne scarring on my cheeks (3 years later). For example, any product with the tiniest amount of oils wields me right back to crazy breakouts. I have a difficult time choosing serums and moisturizers. I don't care for foundations. I only use concealer to lessen the redness of the scars. I learned my lesson. I love my old blackheads : ) I don't need no oil to make them go away. Just smile and shine...and STAY AWAY FROM JOJOBA OIL!!!

I have sensitive eczema prone skin, lots of things irritate my skin. After a recent eczema flare I started using this a facial cleanser. My face was absolutely parched, irritated and rough. I washed my face twice a day and within 3 days my skin was almost completely better. After 5 days my skin looked better than it did before the eczema flare up. My skin looks fresh, radiant, and healthy. I may stop using cleansers and chemical based products all together. After cleansing I apply a bit more on to a cotton round to remove any last traces of mascara and other makeup, and it makes quite an effective eye makeup remover. I also use this as a bath oil or a post shower oil to keep my skin moisturized. Hydrated skin is an absolute must if you have eczema. This is just a really great versatile product, runs about $11USD it has so many uses, love this stuff.

Using this everywhere - face hands & hair.I've been using 2 drops on the ends of my hair after washing it (after I rub my palms together with the oil) and let my long, dry ,colored/highlighted hair air dry.I then use another 1-2 drops after my hair dries, on the ends again, then flat-iron my hair.My hair has never looked better - even my Stylist said to me at my last visit "whatever you are doing/using, keep it up - your hair has never felt this good!!"

Versatile product, for a decent amount of money. I use it to remove my eye make-up right now, but am open to trying some of it's other uses for hair, and so forth.I used to use it as a moisturizer but contrary to what everyone seems to believe - it CAN break you out, and it DID break me out, so be careful.

This is a review pertaining to 100% Organic Jojoba Oil - no brand in particular.This oil is very versatile. I use it for my skin, hair, to remove stubborn makeup and so forth.--SKIN: It is not heavy, does not break me out and provides much needed moisture.--HAIR: I have lion king hair. My hair is long, wavy/curly and can get a bit frizzy. I apply jojoba oil to my damp hair - on the scalp, ends, and basically all over. This oil definitely reduces my frizzyness and allows for my curls to form beautifully.*Tip for my curly haired gals: after you apply jojoba oil to your damp hair, rest your head on any cloth-like surface or better yet, go to sleep after. (I usually wash my hair at night) After 30 mins or once you wake up in the morning, your hair will be bouncy, curly and definitely NOT frizzy. Girls always ask how I manage to keep my curls in tact. Well, there you go. If you let your hair air dry alone, gravity weighs your hair down since it's damp, thus not allowing your curls to form the way they should.*Tip for my foundation lovers: apply a drop of jojoba oil onto med-full coverage foundations prior to applying. It completely removes that "caked-up" makeup look and provides for a natural, flawless finish. It also allows for my makeup to better adhere to my skin and it lasts longer. I have very oily skin, so do not be afraid of adding oils to your beauty routine. Yes, I still get a bit shiny, but once I blot hello flawless!!! This oil is a must for anyone's beauty arsenal. It's so versatile and it's VERY inexpensive.

The most glorious of all natural oils. I was turned on to jojoba oil last summer after a friend recommended it as the product that does just about everything. I was skeptical-- Acne prone and defeated by the market of unsatisfying products that all promised the same thing. Jojoba oil is a little pricey, I paid $13.99 for a small bottle, but it's so worth it. Not only has the application of a few drops to my face helped to clear up my acne and even my skin tone, but this oil can also be used for everything. I use a drop or two, rubbed into my palms, to smooth fly aways after blow drying my hair. I've also used jojoba oil to get rid of stretch marks, soothe dry itchy skin and so much more.
