I love this stuff... I first started using is as a moisturizer on the acne.org regimen (ugh) anyways I found out years ago it didn't moisturize at all... In fact when I stopped using it to moisturize and used a decent moisturizer my skin was better. Its kind of like an astringent in a way... Anyways my skin has been acting up over the last year, time to change my regimen again! I've been oil cleansing with jojoba oil for 2 weeks now and the results are as good as I could expect. I slather it on 3 times and wipe off with a facial pad then a microfiber towel last. My skin glows and slowly but surely my horrible ceravepm break out is clearing out. Love jojoba. Never clogs my pores, doesn't harm my skin.

I've had very bad skin for about ten years and have tried everything under the sun. Spent thousands and nothing has ever worked. I tried this last week and honestly my skin is 80% better. I used to have very congested skin with a few cystic pimples around my chin and cheeks. I first used the oil as an oil cleanse and was so impressed I now use it to cleanse then to moisturise. I also started using apple cider vinegar as a toner and I think the combination of both these natural products are working wonders.
I did have a mild purge on day two, but that cleared up very quickly. My makeup is staying on perfectly and I'm not getting an oily face within an hour !
After all these years I feel I've finally found something that works !
So happy :)

This natural Jojoba oil Is amazing.
I used to have no pimples/acnes or any skin troubles until I reached 22 when suddenly I was covered with severe acne all over my face...(Doctor told me its hormonal issues, recommended me with pills and chemicals which I didn't follow) It was horrible and it was harsh : ( I had work/uni so I was always covering my acnes with more makeup... And using stronger products (facial wash, acne creams, tea tree oil, mentholitum, SKII etc) in hopes to clear it... Looking back to those depressing 6 months of no photos, no outgoings no nothing, it reminds me how painful it was to have such a bad skin, and how poorly I treated it.
Jojoba oil was a coincidence, I have always thought that oil on oily face doesn't make sense, but it came across when I was starting The Regiment from acne.org (after seeing a friend who had a success at following this regiment). The regiment has changed my skin care routine completely and following the method has cleared my acne in two months...(two thumbs up :)) Jojoba oil was recommended by the site to be used with the moisturiser or alone after applying BP. It has worked miraculously on my face capturing moist from the moisturiser I applied... I have suggested my sister this oil, and she told me it didn't benefit her much as it clogged her pores... I also put a lot on my face at the very beginning but now I control it with the right portion with my moisturiser.
I have used up three bottles of 100% natural Australian jojoba oil and is on my fourth bottle and is loving it... Something I will always keep for the rest of my life. :) oh and it's great for eye makeup remover as well :)
I have also bought 100% organic sweet almond oil today and will be using this as a makeup remover along with my extra virgin olive oil. I'm loving these natural oils for skin and the best oil out of all is definitely Jojoba oil. I recommend it highly to sensitive/oily/combination skin! Xoxo

Unfortunately jojoba oil doesn't do anything for my face. It doesn't moisturize, it doesn't sink in, it just sits on top of my skin as a layer of grease until I take it off. I have tried several brands, but nothing happens (it doesn't break me out either).

Thank you, God! Thank you, nature! Thank you MUA for introducing me to this amazing product! I have horrible skin: cystic acne, huge scars, swollen face, bumps, clogged pores, you name it. I've tried so many things. Some worked for a while, some at all. My skin was still greasy but somehow felt dehydrated and dull, uneven. I red about jojoba oil and decided to buy (hard to find where I live and pricey I might add). I used it as a night moisturizer (3-4 drops) and my skin felt instantly smoother (I never thought I will ever get to experience this sensation on my own skin) and when I woke up the glow was still there. The skin looked AMAZING (like 5 years ago when i was on dianne35-big mistake but gorgeous skin) and NO NEW PIMPLES, NONE!! 4 days have passed since then and I pray to God that jojoba will not clog my pores as this is the best thing that happened to me in the past years (skin related, of course). It works wonders on my curly hair as well. For the face I used it 2 times a day (but will reduce to one, I don't want to push my luck).
Please give this a try! :)

Wow. Jojoba oil is incredible. I wish had discovered it sooner! It rehydrates my skin, gives me a gorgeous glow and I feel like it's slowly fading my acne scars :). I've used a variety of brands so far, but I usually go for the organic, cold pressed kind. Such a great oil, so many uses. I use this mostly on my face and occasionally on my hair.

Oh My God - This was the oil i tried after spending soooo much money on stupid products such a benzoyl peroxide.
I asked my mum to grab me some of this stuff, she picked it up from a health food store for $7 AUS.
Every morning and night after washing ym face with **Cetaphil - Soap Cleanser**, i run this oil into my skin and then rinse with *cold* water and pat dry with a towel.
It's been 2 1/2 weeks and my skin went from a cystic acne, bad pimented surface to clear - with a clear surface. I actually can't believe it - its the first 3 weeks my skin hasnt come to mind?!
Mind you, i did break out like crazy in places i didnt even expect to after using this for about a week - but hang in there, its just all the dirt coming out from you skin.
I am so happy with the results of this product. So happy.

I've only just discovered the wonders of using jojoba oil as a face moisturizer after having struggled with cream lotions for so long.
My skin is extremely oily and acne-prone, but I also have incredibly dry skin on my cheeks and chin. It's the T-zone from hell. So on one hand, using heavy creams would clog my pores and make my oil go out of control, but on the other, using light lotions commonly left me with flaking cheeks.
So what's a girl to do?
I read up that using 5 drops of jojoba oil and 1 drop of lavender oil as a face moisturizer is great for acne-prone skin, as the jojoba doesn't clog pores and the lavender is great for calming redness. So I went out and spent about $25 on the two items (knowing that they would last quite a long time) and I've not regretted it since.
I find my skin continues to feel very oily after the jojoba has absorbed, but that can be combated with one use of an oil-absorbing sheet. After that, my skin feels light, comfortable, and evenly moisturized. The lavender definitely has helped to calm down the redness in my cheeks.
I have noticed my pores look smaller now that I've begun the oil moisturizer regime, and the other day, a coworker told me that my face was glowing. I never get that!
I've not had any issues with breakouts (in fact, they seem to be less) and usually, if a product is going to break me out, it'll happen in the first couple days. I've been using jojoba for two weeks now.
It's hard to package the oil in a non-messy way, so it can be a bit high-maintenance in terms of post-prep cleanup in the morning, but it's a small price to pay for healthy skin.
I even find myself wearing far less makeup because I don't feel the need to divert attention away from my skin. Lip color and mascara is all I feel I "need" right now. This is huge, since before, I always did a bold eye and lip look so as to make myself more comfortable with my face.
So again, so far I love this. My skin is soft, flake-free, and once blotted, not shiny or greasy at all. Huzzah!

My skin has gone from oily to normal/dry over the past couple of years (I'm 19 and at 16 my skin was the oiliest). Back when I was frustrated by my oil skin and some pimples/lots of clogged pores on my nose and forehead, I sought out for jojoba oil to help me out because I heard that the human-like sebum qualities it had would control my oils.
At first, jojoba oil clogged the bridge of my nose (there were flesh colored bumps). I stopped using it,concluding that I was the unlucky one who jojoba oil did not magically work on so I immediately stopped using it and the clogged pores on the bridge of my nose were gone.
Then I think weeks or couple months later, I was determined for jojoba oil to work for me (and because I hated to waste the almost full bottle I had), I think my skin had readjusted and accepted it. Gradually, the oil helped clear my complexion and the clogged pores on my nose/forehead improved.
When I was at my driest, jojoba oil didn't provide nearly enough moisture so I doubled it up with another moisturizer and I have been doing that ever since because jojoba oil + moisturizer = super bomb moisturizer :). Though, when I had my really dry bad skin days jojoba oil failed to help.
So to conclude, I had a love hate relationship during my oily and especially very dry skin phases.
Now that my skin is a more better condition thanks to better cleanser and lotion moisturizer, my normal/dry skin has received the jojoba oil better. My skin feels supple, smooth and dewy (because jojoba oil is oily, it will make your skin dewy... or greasy looking if you are not careful). Also, because my skin is in better shape, it absorbs the jojoba oil (and skin products in general) better. I think now, I can use jojoba oil alone especially now in the spring/summer months. So for those people out there with normal skin on the bit of the dry or oily side would find to love this stuff!
One bit of a downside is that to this day I still have the damn clogged pores/blackheads on my nose. There are still tons though it has improved over time. However, I don't blame the jojoba oil much because no matter what product I try, my blackheads are still there. Oh well :(
One big plus side to jojoba oil is that it's natural and I feel like I'm doing my skin a big favor in the long run.
On the topic of makeup, I would make sure to give the jojoba oil 10 to 15 mins to absorb and not to use a lot of it because it does leave the skin dewy as I said before and it may cause some problems when applying foundation or eye makeup (well, if you do put jojoba oil on your eyelids). With my mineral makeup though, it looked best when I did jojoba oil because the oiliness. The person before me who pointed out that jojoba oil is good primer for mineral makeup is right. I don't know if it's just the mineral makeup I use, but there's no cakey look at all on top of the jojoba oil as opposed to using without it. My foundation would have a beautiful glow and dewy look to it, almost as if I applied liquid foundation.
Other uses: I used to use this to take off my face makeup. It did it a good job but it was nearly impossible to wash off. However, I would use it to take off mascara and eye makeup. It's awesome at taking off waterproof mascara.
I have gone through 3 bottles of jojoba oil so far. I bought them at whole foods, gnc, and amazon. I don't think brand matters as long as it's pure jojoba oil. Jojoba oil averaged out to be $12/bottle for me.

omg omg omg!!! why did i have to wait 25 years to discover this skin food? its just beyond amazing.
i got the oil to make my homemade face cream with shea butter, so just out of curiosity i used it by itself, i can't tell you how brilliant it is... i literally have no words.
google will give you all the benefits and everything but lemme tell you my experience.
i washed my face in the night and instead of my regular: toner+serum+night cream+eye cream+ spot correcting routine, i just slathered on a couple of drops of jojoba oil on to my damp face.
the oil is very light when when you rub in between your palms, when you rub in on to your face and pat it right it, it feels like a light serum. it sinks into the skin within a couple of mins. i looked into the mirror and i had this glowy face, i thought the oil has formed a film on my face and therefore the hollywood beauty glow face, but no... i touched it and there was no ickiness... my skin was satin smooth... and all this within 5 mins of applying it.
next morning i woke up with an "after facial glow"... i actually wanted to hug and kiss my own face.
i also tried mixing a 2 drops of tea tree oil into 4 drops of jojoba and onto my face for when i have a breakout or two... next morning, the breakouts looked less prominent, not as inflamed, and smaller in size...
i read somewhere that it works brilliantly as a primer under mineral make up, i am yet to try that but i get a feeling it'll work...
i guess simple one ingredient products like this aren't marketed enough coz then we won't end up emptying our purses for high end so called, "miracle" products...
this one is a must have in every girls dresser!!

I bought this to moisturize my dehydrated skin due to acne treatments. I started to use it on it's on, but now i mix 2 to 3 drops to my night moiturizer.
I have only good thing to say about this. It's anti-inflamatory, it doesn't break me out, and it's hydrating and nourishing to the skin, so my skin benefits a lot from it.
I noticed an huge improvement on my skin. I have very difficulty to find an appropriate moisturizer for nightime that hydrates enough but doesn't cause any more acne, and jojoba oil is the one :)

not for nose makes black pores but I dont know if it is jojoba,pure rose water or verite cleanser (also not washing face in morning may we say) but my face became incredibly beautiful.I use it before going out in evening so when came home it can be washed with water but will try on my cheeks as post moisturizer

Big fan. My skin freaked out over the winter and my cheeks got extremely dry and broken out. Moisturizers were doing NOTHING. My face was literally hurting from the dryness. On top of that, my cheeks broke out with cystic acne. It was a mess.
I did lots of research on a good moisturizer and read about jojoba oil. I ordered Now 100% Organic Jojoba Oil and was very nervous to use it given the mixed reviews. I was really afraid to break out, but I decided to try it at night. At first I used it alone and it was OK, but I felt greasy and had to wipe some off. The next morning I mixed a couple drops with my moisturizer. OMG. Within 1 day my skin was moisturized and no longer dry. I had no break outs and haven't looked back.
I now use this nightly (2 drops) mixed with Clinique moisturizer. I use a different oil in the morning. I have been using Jojoba for at least a month now and have not had any breakouts from it. My skin is super moisturized and I love it. Also, I use 1 or 2 drops and barely made a dent in the bottle. LOVE THIS STUFF.

Best face moisturiser for acne and combination skin, applied overnight cures acne, reduces scars, prevents wrinkles. I have used it for 6 months now, started seeing big improvements after first two months already.

I've been using jojoba oil every night as a moisturizer for the last six months and I absolutely love it. When I first heard about it I was skeptical about putting straight oil on my semi acne prone skin but at that point I was sick of using products full of chemicals so I gave it a shot and have never looked back. I'd recommend this oil to anyone because not only is it the best moisturizer I've ever used but it's also great for your skin and will help with fading acne scars and fine lines. My recommendation would be to apply it before bed and let it absorb for 15 minutes before lightly dabbing off any access oil. I wouldn't wear it under makeup because it understandably might be too oily but if you used it the night before you shouldn't need to moisturize before applying makeup.

This product is amazing ! I use it as a night moisturiser, and my skin feels damn soft the next morning. Here in Quebec I had the melvita brand in a bottle with a pump, which is convenient. However, it cost 26$ which is bloody expensive for a 1oz bottle ! Here's my everyday skincare routine :
Morning: wet my face with a washcloth and then rub some honey to cleanse it from the oil, then apply my makeup.
Night: once again, wet my face and rub honey to cleanse it, and then I apply the Jojoba oil all over my face, and if I have pimples, I put on them some Tea Tree Oil.
Awesome natural products !!!

I recently disovered Jojoba oil works amazing on me as a makeup remover and also a few drops with my GoW Basil Leaf Hydrosol to moisturize. Mositurizers make me break out so I stopped using them, this oil has really helped keep my skin looking radiant and helped with dryness.
