I bought a bottle of organic jojoba oil a week ago and so far it's worked WONDERS! I use it to remove makeup and it literally just slides off my face. I can both really see and feel the difference from when I wash with some drying product and a lot of water, with the oil I don't need to rub at all, it basically just wipes the makeup off.

Sometimes I use it as a moisturiser and it doesn't look greasy at all, just glowy in a healthy way. I also put a drop in my moisturiser before sleep. I've read somewhere that you shouldn't use jojoba oil as a moisturiser because it doesn't hydrate, that it just works to lock moisture in - I don't know if I agree or if it's true. I feel that it moisturises!

Now for the best part. My face is very cheeky. Most foundations look crap on me. It looks dry and patchy and unnatural. But if I blend the foundation with some jojoba oil - VOILA! It looks amazing and totally natural. It doesn't look as if I'm wearing makeup. My redness goes away immediately and it looks and feels very fresh.

The only minus I can find is that I think I use too much, it's difficult to take only one drop and some oil always slips down the sink from the dropper...

Buy a bottle - now!

I just thought I would put in my review here for jojoba oil - even though the last time I used it was about 5 years ago.

Jojoba is the first oil I tried, as I read that it is good for sensitive, clog-prone skin. Let me tell ya guys, jojoba oil clogged up my skin like nothing else ever has and gave me huge painful cystic acne.

And now, when I check comedogenic ratings charts, jojoba oil is indeed listed as comedogenic. Also, it has high oleic acid content, which isn't good for us clog-prone people. The key is to try a high linoleic oil.

Anyway, after my jojoba experience, I swore off oils, but have recently plucked up the courage to try another oil. I have also reviewed argan oil, and that didn't work out for me either.

My search for a good oil for my skin continues. I will try a high linoleic oil next. Perhaps hemp seed oil.

I liked the feel of this oil & how it soothed my face. My skin however did not like this oil! After the first use, I had a couple of pimples and continued to break out! Wish I had great results! I will not repurchase.

So I finally invested in myself for an organic Jojoba oil. I mixed it with my foundation Lancome Teint Miracle prior to application and the finish was perfect. My skin is considered as combi to dry and sometimes oily. Before applying jojoba oil, my normal routine of my foundation made my skin look dry, flaky/patchy in some areas no matter how much I moistured and in a few hours, it would look oily including the dry/patchy mess. I regret buying that foundation however I kept using it cos I did not want to waste it, sure that foundation was good during summer time (strangely enough) but sometimes it just doesnt work well on my skin. I dont blame that foundation alone itself but could be due to my moisturers etc not binding well to the foundation. Anyways viewing Wayne Goss youtube video helped me a lot. The finishing as I mentioned was perfect. It was not too oily looking so there was no need for me to use a ply of tissue to remove excess oil. All I do is apply loose powder and the slight dewy look peeks through. Then, I decided to use it as a moisturer and I have never gone back since! I put 2 drops of jojoba oil and massage into my face and sometimes (depending on my mood) adding a layer of moisturer above. I havent gotten any outbreaks from jojoba oil itself. So Im very happy with my purchase of jojoba oil. The price I paid was expensive though. NZD $30 for 30mls so Im assuming it must be a high quality jojoba oil. Happy customer.

Tried various oils on my combo skin with jawline acne. Jojoba is the only one that did not make me break out worse. Would recommend.

The best moisturizer ever!!! whenever i stray from using just jojoba oil or jojobaoil mixed with aloe gel I regret it after a short time. my skin looks best when using just this stuff. no breakouts. good hydration properties. no weird smell. great under mineral makeup. A true hg product. My advice: get a good quality (pref. organic) oil. it's worth it!

I use jojoba oil every day. Three nights a week I add two drops to my Clinique moisturiser before applying it and and the other four nights I mix four drops of jojoba oil with two drops of rosehip oil and apply it to my face and neck. It takes quite some time for my skin to fully absorb it (it takes less time when I add it to my moisuriser), but I wake up with glowing skin. My skin is sensitive, but seems to really like the oil. When I started using it, I was afraid that it would make my skin more oily and that it would clog my pores. I can't use it during the day because it is too oily, but using it at night doesn't make my skin more oily during the day. It doesn't clog my pores, which is brilliant. It also seems to moisurise my skin really well.

I've only used in my hair once and found that it made it too oily. Then again, it's quite possible that I used too much.

Update: Instead of moisturiser, I sometimes use a mix of jojoba oil, rosehip oil and argan oil on my face. I've mixed a little that I keep in a small bottle. It's mostly jojoba, a little rosehip and a few drops of argan oil. I warm a few drops in my hands before applying it. It doesn't sink in immediately, but when I wake up, my skin is glowing. I sometimes also use it during the day. I just use a smaller amount then so that it sinks in right away. Love this!

I mix a drop of jojoba oil in with my moisturizer both day and night after cleansing my face. It feels great!

PROS:
- absolutely perfect for dry skin (although this can be used with all skin types)
- makes my skin look healthier

CONS:
- none

I am totally in love with this oil. I remember being happy when I tried coconut oils and other oils for my skin, but they were all too greasy and heavy. Coconut oil would leave me so greasy and shiny and make my makeup slide off if there was some left. With Jojoba it sinks in nicely like a moisturiser with a perfect finish. I was looking to a natural alternative to moisturiser without all the chemicals so I am very happy I found this.

I also use it for my cuticles/nails, as makeup remover, night eye cream, hair serum and an overnight hair treatment and it works wonderfully for all of those things. I even mix a drop with my concealer or foundation (gossmakeupartist tip) and it makes it so glowy and pretty. And there's a girl on youtube who puts a tiny bit over her undereye concealer if it creases/cakes and it looks like it works really well (she's called beautyandtheboutique) so I want to try that too. Anyway this is my holy grail I'm so glad I found it.
