THIS IS MY HG!!! Thank you Jojoba oil! I realize only now how truly dehydrated my skin was! And I kept trying to DRY out my acne! Which I see now was just hurting my skin more! I use the Uncle Harry's Organic, it's great, and the bottle is wonderful because it just drops instead of pours. I put a drop of lavender oil in it and massage it into my face, then rinse and massage with cold water a couple timed to get off any excess. My face is left perfectly moisturized and ever so smooth! I just started not even a couple weeks ago, so my acne hasn't had a long time to improve, but already my skin tone is more even and there's no new pimples! The scars have lightened and everything is going great! Give thanks for another one of natures great skin products!
Update: These results lasted a couple weeks, but then I started getting tiny bumps all over my face:-( Darn, I know it was too much Jojoba, but I believe in this stuff, I will try again someday. Till then I love it for my hair and body!

I love this stuff. I use it in a mix with my shea butter (see my notepad for the recipe) and it's great. I use it for body and face and haven't had any breakouts from it. Moisturizes my skin without a greasy feel. Definitely recommend. :)

I LOVE JOJOBA OIL!! It is my HG moisterizer and has controled my oily skin like nothing else has and has helped my acne. I use to have to touch up my makeup like 5 times a day because of how oily I use to be, but not anymore. I have been using a mixture of jojoba oil/olive squaline/ and vitamin E on my face for about 3 months and my face is honestly in shape I have ever seen it, in all my 25 years on this planet..LOL...it is THAT good!!

I've been a loyal user of olive oil for many different purposes, but lately I've started experimenting with other natural oils, and now I'm just hooked. As stated here many times before, jojoba oil works well as an eye makeup remover. I use it for water-soluble mascara only, because it takes AGES to take off waterproof mascara with the oil. I also sometimes use it as an under eye moisturizer, although avocado oil is more superior for that purpose. In fact, I rarely use eye creams anymore, only oils in the evening, and my regular facial moisturizer in the morning for my under eye are too.
I also use jojoba (or avocado) oil as a base oil for my homemade salt scrub which simply comprises of just jojoba oil and Himalayan salt ;) I like the fact that jojoba oil doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy like, for example, olive oil does. Sometimes I also mix it with my body lotion to boost the moisturizing effect. However, it might be causing breakouts on my face… I'll continue experimenting with it.
In addition, I use it in my haircare by mixing it with my conditioner, using it on the tips of my towel-dried hair or just applying it like a serum (only 1-2 drops will do). Very versatile oil, and I will most definitely keep some in my bathroom cabinet.

Jojoba oil is a multi functional product. I have used it as a conditioner, body moisturizer and facial moisturizer.
First I used it as a leave in conditioner, that made my hair very oily (maybe I used too much), as a rinse out conditioner it was a bit better. It is okay when you want to go all natural, but if you don't there are better conditioners to get.
Jojoba oil makes your skin glowing, especially on your legs it looks beautiful. It can make your cloths a bit dirty though.
I have acne and oily skin and I read a lot of good reviews about jojoba oil for that skintype. I have clogged pores with those sebum plugs and they disappeared in a few days when I start using the jojoba oil, my face was glowing and felt very soft. I was so happy!
But after a week or so my eyes became very irritated (blefaritis) and I got dermatitis near my nose and eyebrows. Very strange, because you don't expect that with such a simple oil.
I have very dry ends in my fine hair at the moment and I discovered that when I put only one drop of the jojoba oil in the ends of my wet hair it is a perfect leave in serum/conditioner. It is much more moisturising than a serum loaded with silicones.

UPDATE Feb 2010: I used to use Jojoba mixed with Camellia and Sunflower oils as a facial cleanser, but I've found that using Macadamia Nut Oil mixed 1:1 with Grapeseed cleanses my face better and it wipes off more gently with just spring water and cotton wool pads. I've reviewed the Oil Cleansing Method (OCM) where I describe in full how I use it. I use Bee Yummy Skin Food as moisturiser and my skin looks great even though I'm Rosacea/Dermatitis/Eczema-prone.
I've also used Jojoba on my face as cleanser and moisturiser and ultimately it dries my skin out. For body, I use it mixed with other oils (grapeseed and almond) as moisturiser and mixed with soap in shower as shave cream. I have a big pump bottle of it (Jojoba+Grapeseed+Almond) next to my shower gel (Savon de Marseilles). I pump once on the soap and rub my hands together quickly then pump the oil in and rub my hands together to make a creamy lather, which not only makes an amazing shave cream but just an overall moisturising wash. It leaves the lightest layer of oil on my skin so that my skin is soft and clean when I get out. I think Jojoba is essential for this because it's a liquid wax and is therefore very hearty - by that I mean it doesn't just wash away with the soap like a very light oil would.

So, this is a review for just plain old jojoba oil. This stuff is just awesome. I've used it as a massage oil, body moisturizer, face moisturizer, in home facials, as a leave-in-overnight hair treatment, hair shine, and eye-make-up remover.
I love it as a make-up remover. Put it on, massage it in, wipe it off. Due to the price (the only downside to this great little liquid-wax), I currently use it for eye-make-up removal only... occasionally as a hair shine or treatment. I buy it nearly wholesale from a massage/soap-maker/supply website, so it's more affordable than it could be. Jojoba is incredibly shelf-stable, so I don't have to worry too much about trying to use it up in a short amount of time.
There are tons of recipes online, so if you haven't tried this you should. It's multi-purpose and wonderful.

Alright, soo this stuff is eh* for me.
I like that it's organic and not full of chemical ingredients like other moisturizer. (I use desert essence jojoba oil from Trader Joes).
I use it at night along with my Olay night recovery moisturizer.
It does moisturize. I'll give it that. But I haven't seen my acne scars fade from this. I also haven't notice the oil production decrease for me, like many have said it would.
I don't use this to remove eye-makeup, so I wouldn't know about that.
I don't put this in my hair, because it gets oily fast on my hair. I use biosilk, and that's just perfect.
What I hate about this stuff is that when I go to sleep at night, I wake up with kind of oily hair in the morning, and I don't even use that much. And, well I can't really stop myself from squirming like a worm when I sleep.
So, this is pretty much just a GOOD moisturizer. It does hydrate. But that's all I can give it. I was hoping and looking forward to this, but nope it didn't work quite that well for me.
I've been using this for a month now... so all that I've said is just from a month. I should probably give it more time, and I will. I'll update later on whether it works for fading acne scars.
One thing to note about this.
It DID NOT make me break out. PHEW* lol. I was very worried about that. But I did my research. Jojoba oil, is actually not an oil, it's a wax. Now, you'll ask "well, won't wax break me out?", lol. different things will work and not work on different people. So you have to try things out to know what works and doesnt.
I had high hopes for jojoba oil. I'll continue though and update later.
I do have to tell you another thing, I don't put this on in the morning along with my whole makeup routine. I only put on my Olay serum and sunblock spf 55. The sunblock feels a bit oily so I steer away from jojoba oil. I'll have yet to see if I have the guts to try it. lol.
You guys, and gals, have to try this.
It's ORGANIC, no weird chemicals, additives, preservatives. NOTHING bad. This can take over as a moisturizer.
Just give it a try.
It was about $6.99 for me. Not bad considering I pay $20.00 for Olay's night recovery, $18.00 for Olay's serum, and etc.
If it doesn't work for your face, it'll defintely work for the rest of your body and so it won't go to waste.

Think Everyone should have a stash of this oil handy, when your skin is tired of all those chemicals!! this is soothing, moisturises and wont clog your pores, in fact I use this in the OCM method and i have found my skin is LESS oily and thats a big result cos I have struggled with oily skin for at least 1/3 of my life! worth investing in...I believe natural products is the key to good skin
google jojoba oil and see the great benefits

Caused me to break out :(

I can't believe I had doubts about this stuff!! The first few times, I tried it, I wasn't really feeling it. I didn't think it was all that moisturizing. But I decided to give it a shot again. I use it:
1) To remove waterproof mascara. (So much better than any other eye makeup remover I've tried!)
2) To remove regular makeup.
3) As a moisturizer after I take a shower in the morning.
4) As a moisturizer/barrier-sort-of-thing before I apply benzoyl peroxide on my face at night.
5) In my body wash.
6) As a shave oil.
Results? Nothing but soft, smooth skin. Love it!

I've been using Now brand 100% jojoba oil from WholeFoods for two weeks; I started out using it at night only after washing my face, but now I use it in the morning after I shower as well. The first few days, I was dubious, but now I think I'm seeing positive change: softer, calmer, smoother skin. Will post again at 6 weeks. UPDATE: This is working out very well for me; my skin is clearer and calmer. Yay!

After much experimentation...(as in, I didn't use this once and decide to review *eyeroll*) I have decided that this oil does not belong anywhere NEAR my face. It clogs up my pores and makes my skin look really dirty and congested.
I tried to use it on my hair; I got pimples on my hairline and my neck.
I tried to use it on my hands and nails...it doesn't do anything
I tried it as a body moisturizer...it makes my skin drier.
I tried it just around my eyes...makes my skin crepey
This review is 2 years and a couple bottles later. I'm glad it's worked magic for you ladies but it is no good for me.
Organic virgin coconut oil on the other hand...is a godsend. Never breaks me out and keeps me feeling soft all day long.

the first oil I tried is the jojoba oil, by desert essence, 7.XX dollars for 2 fl. oz. I think it's just mediocre. I don't see any great improvement on my dry skin nor to my hair. the best thing is that it has no scent. I would prefer avocado oil or sweet almond oil over this one.

i just recently started using jojoba oil and i have to say i am really impressed. I have oily acne prone skin and had heard jojoba oil was really good for my type of skin. Jojoba oil is a more of a wax and is very close to the composition of the sebum produced by your pores. So aside from having really great antioxidant properties, it also has this homeopathic effect in that, when u put it on ur face, ur pores recognize it as sebum so they don't produce any more oil. It is really inexpensive and u can find it at any whole foods store or on acne.org. I buy the one packaged in a glass bottle because i think it is better packaging hence great for the environment. its about $6.99

It's okay. I would use it after a shower. Won't buy again since there is better out there.

I mix jojoba oil with my shampoo and love the fullness and softness of my hair afterwards. I don't need to buy the costly deep moisturizing treatments ever again. I massage my face at the end of the day with this golden nectar before washing off make-up. 20 to 30 seconds tops. Any more than that I feel my skin getting tight and dry. The end result is clean, clean smooth skin. I even add a dollop to my face and body cleanser and I don't always need to moisturize afterwards. One thing I do not do is to leave it on my face. Just don't like the feel of it. I've experimented with various oils for years now and jojoba is superior by far for your hair.

Jojoba is an all around product. Not just for oily or dry skin. It moisturizes dry skin as well as cleans oily skin. Use it on your hair, nails&cuticles, skin, face, lips...all over!
Here are some ideas for using Jojoba.
1. Put a couple drops in your cleanser to wash your face
2. Put a drop directly on your skin on clean skin at night as a moisturizer
3. Put some in your hair before you go to bed the night before you wash your hair to moisturize fried hair
4. Put a couple drops in your conditioner and then rinse it out
5. Occasionally put it on as a mask for 15 minutes or so before using my cleanser
6. You can use jojoba oil if you have a dry, flaky scalp. You massage it into your scalp, you don't have to saturate your hair with it. You can keep it on for at least twenty minutes. Ideally, keep it on overnight and then wash your hair the next day
7. Use it as a body oil
It's an amazing product. It's just that most people don't know how to make the most out of it.
A few Jojo facts:
Jojoba oil (Simmondsia chinensis)
In reality jojoba oil is not an oil but a liquid wax
Since it is composed of wax esters, it is an extremely stable substance and does not easily deteriorate and the structure closely resembles that of your own skin sebum, making it an excellent moisturizer and ideal for all skin types.
When used as a massage medium, it acts as an emulsifier with the skin's natural sebum and gently unclogs the pores and lifts grime and embedded impurities.
It contains myristic acid which also has anti-inflammatory actions and since it has a similar in composition to that of the skin's own oils, it is quickly absorbed and is excellent for dry and mature skins as well as inflamed conditions.
If a good nourishing ingredient is needed for hair care, jojoba oil is also sometimes added to commercial hair care products, but due to the cost of jojoba oil, the quantities so included are low.
It can in most cases be used on acne skin without any problems as it helps to control acne, it is also an antioxidant - so the oil does not become rancid and can prevent rancidity in other oils. It can be used pure in massage, or can be mixed with other carrier oils.

I only give this a so-so rating because I have dry skin and I think its not best for dry skin.
This is a fine all around face oil/ moisturizer for oily/ acne-prone skin.
It did not clog my pores/ or give me pimples but I have drier skin so after a while of using it I realized my skin was dry and this oil was not moisturizing enough for me.
Would be better for people w/ oily skin.

I have oily skin, and this is the best thing I've used to clean it. I was very skeptical at first, but the dirt on the cotton made me a believer. Massage a few drops into your face, wipe with a cotton pad or white washcloth, and you will see how much dirt you've been missing. I've used vitamin E oil and olive oil, and they both work just as well.
