I love Jojoba oil! I have had a bottle of it from "The Vitamin Shoppe" (I think it's the NOW brand) for about 6 months and used it off and on but I started using Retin-A this winter and my face started getting dry. To combat the dryness I've been adding Jojoba oil to my daily moisturizer in addition to the Rosehip oil I already used for the last 6-8 weeks. This has really done the trick! I've noticed a marked decrease in oil production on my face! I had oily, slightly acneic skin but now I'd say it's almost normal :). I chose this oil because I read it is the closest to the skin's natural sebum and I really think this is true considering how well my skin has adjusted to it. My oil production decreased with the use of Rosehip oil but that hardly compares to how much it decreased with the Jojoba! It does such a good job at hydrating my skin and soaks right in. I plan on keeping this in my regimen all year round :). I didn't have any adverse effects such as pimples or clogged pores with this oil.

I first tried jojoba oil (Trader Joe's brand to be exact) as part of the OCM since it seems it works for everyone ... except me. I broke out worse than before on the OCM. This wasn't just purging. It was non-stop, all different types of pimples (blackheads, whiteheads, cysts). I stopped doing the OCM, but continued to use jojoba oil to remove my makeup. I thought since I was washing my face afterward with CeraVe, that I wouldn't suffer the same effects. I was wrong. I continued to have tiny blackheads and / or clogged pores all over my face. Some of them would remain small and would eventually sort of unplug themselves. Some of them stay under the skin and fester until the come to a head. Sadly, I've had to stop using jojoba oil on my face. I can, however, recommend it for use in place of your body lotion. I do this on occasion and it feels luxurious.

So not what I expected. I am one of the folks it doesn't work for and I'm bummed. My face breaks out viscously after using it.

On my face this did horrors--pores enlarged, wrinkles continued coming and skin stayed dry where it was dry even with the oil. Maybe I used too much, or maybe I used a low quality brand (I used Trader Joe's and I probably did use more than a few drops as people advise--maybe I'll try it again in the future). Lots of white heads appeared that disappeared a few months after I discontinued use.
For eyelashes and eyebrows--this stuff really grew it back in. My eyelashes were thinned out from leaving mascara on during sleep (when I should have taken it off!) and not throwing away old bottles of mascara (my routine is far more responsible and hygienic now, FYI). They grew back to their usual thickness and length. And my eyebrows--a lot of extra hairs actually started growing in that I thought I'd banished! Haha, oh well.
In fact it even grew the peach fuzz that's all over my face (all over everyone's faces--just those tiny hairs you can barely see). It is longer for certain. It's not noticable, but thought that was interesting.
I now use it in an OCM makeup remover with castor oil, water, and olive oil that I shake up before use. This concoction has done miracles for my face, but the jojoba is included in a very small amount and when the ratio of jojoba was higher, it was less effective. (I used the jojoba version for a year, and have already noticed significant improvements after lowering a great amount of the jojoba and adding castor and olive oil. The amount of water added is in the same ratio of oil to water that it was previously with just water and jojoba.).
Because of the hair growth I experienced on my face, I am also using it to thicken the hair on my head since it's thinned out a bit over the years, probably from stress. I also put it on the tips of my hair after putting in a leave in conditioner, and my hair has been really happy so far. I've only done this for a few days now, so obviously no reports on head hair growth, but I will keep you guys posted.

This is a staple in my home since a year or two back. I use it as a face wash, an ingredient in my home made face cream, for my dry hands and the tips of my hair. It's an oil so you only need to use a little, making it worth the seemingly high price. The scent is quite neutral, just slightly "earthy" or like a vegetable.
I've read somewhere that this oil is similar to our own skin sebum, which is why it works so well for so many skin types - mine is very acne prone and this oil doesn't break me out at all. It's not pore clogging (unless you use too much of course), and a rather dry oil, so it sinks in and dissapears without making you feel greasy. This means it might not be enough to moisturize dry skin, but it can be mixed with some glycerin, or used as an ingredient in a home made cream.

My HG product! I use it as a moisturizer on my face day and night.
Perfect for my combination skin. My face no longer gets oily or dry.
Evens out the skintone. (The skin on my upper lip is quite a few shades lighter than the rest of my face and the jojoba has even it out.)
Antibacterial, it has healed my face from the destruction (acne) caused by the OCM method my poor face went through a couple of months ago.
Works well under makeup.
Makes the face glow.
My face is always moist, as it should be. Not dry, not oily.
Perfect for the hair, makes my curls shiny and soft.
Works good for an ichy scalp.
Very good to remove eye make up with, it doesn't irritate the eyes. It can also be used as a makeup remover for the face.
Look for an ecological jojoba oil.
Is a little too dry for the cold and superdry winter months here in Sweden, but I still put it on under my moisturizer.
A little expensive, but it's worth the money!
= Will definitely repurchase.

I had great result with Trilogy rose hip oil on my neck so I’ve decided to search one for my face as serum or moisturizer. After doing some search on the internet and decided to purchase Fushi Wellbeing Jojoba oil. I didn’t see a major difference after few days’ usage, however by end of the week, I’ve started to get breakout. Maybe oil is just doesn’t go well on my face.
As I still have almost full bottle left, I’m now using it on my hair as a leave in serum on towel dry hair. I don’t see a major difference but it smooth my fizziness during the day. However if I use too much on my hair, it makes my hair colour looks darker.

I got mine generic from an organics store.
I like it for all over body oil after showering and as makeup remover (I use SKII cleaning oil and found it too expensive a habit to maintain).
Love it so far. Cheap, good and organic.

I just love Jojoba Oil. It moisturizing, dosnt clog pores (like Rosehip and almond oil does) and its very light and it quite cheap compared to a lot of other stuff. it also contains a lot of natural antioxidants like vitamin E. I have suffered from acne all my life and Jojoba Oil helps mé in controling it. I was terrified at first after trying Rosehip Oil, which brokke out like crazy, but Jojoba oil has never caused mé to break out. Try it!

Jojoba oil and oil cleansing/moisturising is a fairly new concept to my skincare routine.
I have used various oils for various purposes- coconut for face and body moisture as well as makeup removal and hair conditioning, olive oil for hair masks and makeup removal, castor oil for lash and brow growth etc.
I have read up on jojoba oil and have been using it for about 4 months now.
As I tend to get hormonal acne at the TOTM, and odd pimples here and there when I'm not on the Pill. Jojoba oil is supposedly very close to the make up of skin's natural oils, but with the benefit of added antibacterial properties.
The first week of using this was turmoil for my skin- clogged pores surfacing everywhere, white and black heads galore. Then one morning, I woke up to little 'bits' all over my face, which turned out to be what was in the clogged pores- the oil had essentially cleaned out my pores from within.
Now this has replaced my night moisturiser, I use about 3-4 drops for my entire face, and follow up with an eye cream.
Initially I was apprehensive of using oil on an oily combination t-zone, but oil on oil really works, I can now vouch for it.
