I dont have the Desert Essence brand but I dont think that matters, as long as it's organic (and mine is cold pressed?) Well I just have to say it's fantastic!! I have combination skin and periodic breakouts with slight roseaca. So basically my skin doesnt know whats wrong with it - its dry, its oily, its spotty, the pores are big, blacheads etc Jojoba oil cant clog you pores and because the chemical makeup of it is extremely similar to the natural oils produced by our bodies it's perfect to put on your skin, I think it actually trickrs your skin into thinking youve produced enough oil which is amazing for oily tzones like mine. I use jojoba oil to take off my make up (including eye make up) after ive massaged it in I go in with my cleanser and remove the whole lot with water, then go back in again with jojoba oil to moisturize, leave it on for half an hour and put on my ordinary moisturizer. My skin hasnt looked this good in about 4 years!! No excess oil production and ive noticed a slight improvement in my redness, and its so gentle around my eyes. My make up goes on better and ive been able to switch from matte foundations to more sheer foundations like MAC F&B and Chanel Pro lumiere instead of Studio Fix fluid and Matt Lumiere. This is a FANTASTIC product and Im a real sucker for buying loads and loads of different things for my skin but I can safely say this is now a staple product for me!
