My HG skincare oil and one of the few that doesn't break me out :) It leaves my skin calm, glowing, moisturized, and flake-free (when I first started using Retin-A I got some dry flakes which were completely destroyed by jojoba oil)
Note: I've used Desert Essence, Now Foods Jojoba oils, and a bulk one I bought from a organic living/ soap supply store in my city. All of them work about the same for my skin although I prefer Desert Essence's slightly thicker consistency a little more.

I've read that Jojoba (jo-jo-ba) oil is known as:
"...the oil (wax) that mostly closely resembles human sebum, so the uses and benefits to skin and hair are high."
I use this on my face after I tone using my Dr. Organic Rose Otto Face Toner and it just sinks right in, leaving my skin non-greasy, plump, so soft and best of all glowing giiiirl!
This is perfect for using as a night treatment oil and definitely replaces the need for expensive night serums, lotions, creams and all that jazz. This does it all for me and a little goes a very long way. I wake up in the morning and my face isn't dry, my pores are tight, and my skin is still glowing!
My boyfriend always compliments me on my skin and insists that I don't wear any make-up and thanks to this oil, I rarely do now!
I've tried other oils on my face and body such as coconut oil (works best on my hair), olive oil, castor oil and avocado oil but jojoba works the best for me.
It's not going to have great effects for everybody, but I'm thankful that I've found a great inexpensive, all natural product that works for my whole body - even hair and nails!
I'd definitely recommend this to anyone!

I got jojoba oil yesterday from S&H Health Foods (Canada). The brand is NOW and was about $14 for 118 ml. This brand has more bang for your buck than Desert Essences. I have oily/combination skin, I have problems with pimples as well. Sometimes my skin behaves well and I have no pimples, other times I break out a lot! Researching online, jojoba oil is similar to the natural oil the human produces so I thought I'd give this a try. I previously used shea butter on my skin (it does not break me out), however, I found it was not very absorbing and I often looked very greasy. After cleaning my face with Ole Henriksen's aloe vera cleanser and applying a sample of vit. c serum, I applied jojoba oil. My first take is it is very fast absorbing and so lightweight! My skin drank up the oil immediately! My face does not look greasy, my skin looks healthy - not dry or too oily.
I will continue to update this review after month or more. The above written is just my first impression on it.

Yay! Miracle oil! I got the Trader Joe's 100% pure jojoba oil But this works with ANY jojoba oil! A MIRACLE for thin,Sparse,Uneven brows! BTW- I have some whiteheads on my forehead and i get 1 or 2 cystic pimples once in a while and the oil did not contribute to my breakouts AT ALL. It actually seemed to calm dem! Cleanser: I pour a bit onto my fingertip and massage into my face and over my eyes (Doesn't irritate my eyes whatsoever) for 1-2 minutes then gently wipe it of with a tissue, Wash your face if you want to, I always do. Moisturizer: Distribute a thin layer to clean face, Use on Hands,Elbows,Feet,Heels ECT. Eyebrows: I had a hair missing on my brows that would NEVER come back used this, BAM! Use a small angled brush LIGHTY dipped into brown eyeshadow and Jojoba oil to "Draw" where you want your brows to come in.

This oil is ideal for dehydrated/acneic skin. I was a tad over-zealous with a home glycolic peel on my oily/combination/dehydrated and problematic skin (never again!) and my face was red and flakey. I also have recent marks, a combination of damage from the mask and from recent and old spots. I mixed cold-pressed pure jojoba oil with rosehip seed oil, two drops of each. I applied after my night-time cleanse and topped off with my usual Cerave PM night lotion. My skin felt a little oily initially but the oils soon sank in. This blend worked overnight to soothe my parched skin without any adverse reaction or blocked pores. I'm amazed! I will be doing this regularly from now on. I think every night would be excessive, but certainly two or three times a week. I'm also thinking of adding sweet almond oil, grapeseed oil, ylang ylang and neroli for added anti-ageing, mark-fading and re-balancing properties.

I've been using this for about a year now, and I'm prompted to write a review because I strayed for it for a week or so and regretted it! I have fair, very sensitive skin, prone to redness (I sometimes get worried that I will develop rosacea). It is very easily irritated. I spent my early 20s battering it with anti-ageing products and probably made it a lot worse.
Anyway, at the point in time when I ordered this my skin was reacting to pretty much every cream I used and every morning I was waking up with bright red cheeks. I used it as a moisturiser instead of a cream, and after a few weeks my skin tone was less red and my skin was more glowy. I didn't feel my skin was totally hydrated after using it though, as it was still a bit flakey in places.
Now I've found a good routine which keeps my skin calm and glowing - no red cheeks when I wake up! I use trilogy very gentle serum and moisturising cream, and then rub together about 4-5 drops of jojoba oil and put it over my moisturiser; my skin is hydrated, even-toned and bright when I wake up in the mornings. Every other night I use retin-A before the moisturising cream, but not on my cheeks where the skin is sensitive - this seems to work very well.
Last week I switched to grapeseed oil and sweet almond oil; total disaster - skin was red, blotchy and uncomfortable (even though there is sweet almond oil in the trilogy products, so I thought I'd be ok). Made me realise how amazing jojoba oil is! At 28, my skin is now far better than it was in my early 20s, all through using these products.
Jojoba oil doesn't sink in *that* easily though, so I only use it in the morning if I'm not going out anywhere.
Also, a few drops in your hair before you wash it will make your hair amazingly soft and swishy... but do make sure you shampoo it thoroughly to get the oil off properly.

I bought it for using it at face massage.
I have combination, sensitive skin, that gets red easily.
I don t like this oil for face massage, because I think it just stays on top of my skin. and in the morning my skin felt quite tight, which I did not like...
So, for my skin is not moisturizing, but too astringent.
Anyways, I will use it to take my eye makeup off. Does a good job at that.

Great stuff! I've only recently begun to get into skincare, and this oil was highly recommended by mua, as well as acne.org I have fair, sensitive, oily, acne-prone skin, and was looking for a moisturizer that wouldn't break me out. I ended up using this for everything! Hair, face, daytime moisturizer, night time moisturizer (I alternate, because you really can only use the tiniest amount during the day, else it doesn't absorb and then you have greasy skin). Same goes for hair, only a drop if I'm wearing it down, but I like to coat my hair, throw it up in a bun for the day and then when I was my hair - voila! Amazingly conditioned shiny perfect hair. Doesn't break me out at all either, will repurchase definitely!

This is HG for me. Since I started using it I've had very few actual zits, and the appearance of the large pores on my nose and cheeks has diminished greatly and they look consistently clean for the first time in....well....ever. Its made my skin take on a creamy appearance if that makes sense and it absorbs quickly and feels rich and luxurious.
My skin overall has seen massive improvement since I simplified my routine. I use a mild creamy cleanser and this, only. Sometimes I do a simple mask but not often. I really think jojoba oil this has been an essential part of that improvement. And I've tried lots of oils with markedly inferior results to this.
The only thing that concerns me is that this MAY be facilitating the growth of my fine facial hairs. I'm starting to notice they tend to be longer now than they used to be. I'm not blaming this...it could just be that I'm getting old lol
I definitely recommend giving this a shot as part if a simple skin care routine!
