I have been using this as a facial moisturizer for at least a year and it does not break out my sensitive dry skin (I still get occasional zits but not from this) - my dryness is probably why I get away with being relatively generous applying it (?) and it feels nice when my face feels naked after washing it lol. I only have to wait a few minutes before I can apply my foundation over it (liquid foundation though - I'm sure powder or BB cream would be more of a challenge, but if you have that then maybe just have this as a nighttime thing!)
Not the best packaging - oil escapes pretty easily, so make sure this won't get knocked over.
I also like being able to just wipe the extra around my hands :P they need moisturizing power too!

Best makeup remover ever! My skin is pretty normal, but can get funky if I use the wrong products. I massage about a dime size amount all over my face, including my eyes. I give my skin a good massage for about two minutes. All my makeup dissolves quickly. The oil also feels very nourishing on my skin. I then follow with TJ's tea tree face wash.
It has no fragrance, doesn't cause any irritation or breakouts, and is very affordable! I used to use expensive, high end skin care, but my skin (and my wallet!) have been much happier with Trader Joes!
My skincare routine that I swear by:
TJ's Jojoba oil- remove makeup, massage whole face
TJ's Spa Facewash with Tea Tree oil
TJ's Nourish Oil-free Antioxidant moisturizer
TJ's Vitamin E Oil- as an eye cream
TJ's Nourish Antioxidant Face serum- as a primer
I am in no way affilaited with Trader Joe's, I just totally love their products!

I bought this when I was on my "natural kick" for facial products and I have never regretted it. I have many other oils at home, grapeseed oil, sweet almond, vitamin E, etc. Trader Joe's Jojoba Oil is by far, my favorite. I have oily skin and I use this as a base under foundation and sun block. I also use this after cleansing my face at night. I'm on my last drops of this bottle and I definitely plan on repurchasing.

Pros:
Light texture (just a few drops is more than enough though)
Doesn't break me out at all
Calms my skin (especially redness around my nose)
Wake up with soft, clear skin
Skin feels hydrated
Decent price for the amount of product

Cons:
Bottle drips and may leak if stored on its side.

I highly recommend jojoba oil, specifically TJ's which is the only one I have used so far and I absolutely love it.

I use this to remove my makeup. I adore it. I just wish it stayed closed when I travel. Put it in double ziplocks by itself. Learn from my mistake!

This works great and is reasonably priced but I do have to say that pretty much any oil works as an eye makeup remover, and I personally would chooses a slightly lighter oil like safflower.

Jojoba oil, any type is a liquid wax that never goes bad, so you don't have to worry about an expiration date

It removes make up cleans and softens your face

I use this oil all over my body and face

It is one of the best

Opps, I reviewed jojoba oil before on some other listing but it's Trader Joe's brand I use. I had tried this previously on my face but *generally* I don't use it there because I do break out easily and I can't really be sure if oil and certain products make it worse (I know for sure some ingredients do, while others I'm not sure about. It could just be coincidence because I break out regardless). However, I think this is relatively safe and I do occasionally use just a drop or two if I'm really dry or mix it with moisturizer. I'm also unsure if it moisturizes or is a more drying oil on the face, since I tend to use it when I become overly dry from acne treatments so it's hard to tell. It supposedly mimics the sebum in your face so you don't over produce it. I know a lot of people with acne who use benzyl peroxide love to add jojoba afterwards. But you do have to be careful not to overdo it if you are especially clog prone, which is the case with almost anything thicker/oil based.

I do really like this for an eye make up remover and also for a lipstick remover, which I REALLY find is the best use. I can buy other eyemakeup removers but I specifically love the feel of this on the lips (probably more than the eyes.) So many of those products are so drying or weird feeling and leave an ashy look behind on the skin. This is nice and nourishing.

I also use this on areas I "maybe shouldn't have messed" with that become big ugly sore spots that scab over. I feel like a dab of jojoba helps heal them. I use first aid ointment too, but I think this helps nourish and heal them up with less scaring. I used to think it caused new pimples nearby the scab but I've found popping is what causes new pimples, regarless of what I put on them afterwards. I've bought this many times. I really like it and it's a great value for the price.

Love it, I use it to take my make-up off and doesn't irritate my skin or leave it greasy.

I have combination skin, so my T-zone is oily and my cheeks are drier. I used to not use any face wash to avoid putting chemicals on my skin but now that it's summer, my face gets sticky. So I purchased an organic face wash but that dried out my skin and made my T zone oilier and my dry spots drier.

I theorized that my face was shinier looking because it was over producing, so my friend told me about using jojoba oil as moisturizer. I was skeptical about putting oil on top of oil, but it turns out that because of the jojoba oil soaking into my skin and moisturizing it, my face doesn't over produce its own oils.

Jojoba oil sinks into the skin and leaves a subtle sheen, nothing like the shininess of my natural face oil. My skin looks and feels a lot better now. If you are against putting chemicals on or in your body, this is a great option.

What I do is put a few drops in my face wash and wash my face with that. After drying my face off, I rub in a few more drops of jojoba oil and it keeps my skin very moisturized and soft. I do not use makeup but due to its oiliness, I think it would be a great makeup remover.
