Ok i bought a bottle of this from the australian golden jojoba oil line in hopes of curing my breakout. Turns out it just made it worse.It made my skin super dry and tight and red as well. I started to have flakes in my cheekbone and undereye area to the point where i began to have crow's feet and im only 17! . I was told this was good for clogged pores but it made it even worse. I tried using a moisturiser over this to ease the dryness but it didnt do much. I used this product for 3 weeks and ive been told the purging period lasts about 10 days so obviously this product is shit for my skin. However to finish the remaining amount(it was expensive), i decided to use it on my hair. And it works great. Made it less dry and shiny. So i would totally rcommend to use it for your hair. Also, the packaging is not so great. The pump squirts it out straight therefore t sort of goes everywher. I would definitely not recommend except myb for hair.

Jojoba oil is tricky. Natural, non-coney, eco-safe but greasy, hard to absorb and a questionable hair conditioner.
So what's the real problem? It's can be hard to manage. Yes, it's harmless. It's natural. It doesn't have an overpowering fragrance. And it does resemble what the body creates itself, like a reviewer said below. I've been trying unconventional methods for my hair, like glycerin, which so far I like. However, this one is tough. First, it doesn't sink into skin very easily. And second, it makes my hair look unwashed. Maybe if added to a shampoo it could work but I think the soap just washes it right out. I definitely can't use it under makeup and I can't leave the apartment looking like I rubbed oil in my hair, even though, yeah, I rubbed oil in my hair. Any suggestions on how to use it properly will be appreciated because it's a nice concept but the execution is another story. All I know is a lot of people are like me: wanting non-coney methods of hair care that moisturize just enough without LOOKING like you loaded your hair with ten layers of gunk. I would only buy this again if I figured out a way to use it without the ick.
On the upside, I guess the ick doesn't matter if you only leave it on at night.:)

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.
Edit: It's now March 22, 2014, I've been using jojoba oil for about a month. I've noticed my cheeks are not moisturized enough. After a few hours, I notice tightness and after many hours, I notice flaking. My t-zone is moisturized very well, not too dry or too oily, just normal. I may buy another moisturizer for my cheek area, so that part of the epidermis can be moisturized better. And another use for jojoba oil is it makes a great finishing product after I straighten my hair. My hair absorbs the oil very well so my hair does not look greasy.

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.
