This is a wonderful product. I used to suffer from severe acne. I was on accutane twice, once when I was 19, and again at age 26. Until just a couple of years ago, I constantly had to treat with a dermatologist to keep me face from erupting. But I've found some natural products that have given me beautiful skin for the first time in my life. This is a wonderful product. I've used it for a couple of years. It has great anti-aging properties as well as keeps your skin clear. I used to suffer from severe acne. I was on accutane twice, once when I was 19, and again at age 26. Until just a couple of years ago, I constantly had to treat with aner. I do this morning and night. Second I use a witchhazel/tree tea oil toner. I buy a bottle of witch hazel and then add a 1/2 oz. or so of tea tree oil. Third I use benzoyl peroxide. You won't need this if you are not acne prone.Fourth I use a face cream with glycolic acid. Aqua Glycolic and [@] have good products. The glycolic acid encourages rapid skin growth and helps keep your skin clear. Supposedly it is a good anti-aging product. In the morning I then apply sunscreen, at least 50 SPF.If my skin still needs it, I apply moisturizer. At night I mix a couple drops of jojoba oil in my moisturizer. I don't add the oil in the morning because it's a little greasy. And my makeup won't stay on if I have jojoba oil on my skin. But the JO is an amazing make-up remover! This is the best regimen I have found - when I tell people who haven't known me for years that I used to have cystic acne, they can't believe it.

I love Jojoba Oil! To me it's a miracle oil that is great for EVERYTHING! Skin problems, hair, cuticles, wrinkles, moisturizing, ANYTHING! This specific brand has a different smell than all the other brands I have purchased. It smells like dry coffee beans or toasted nuts. Very strange when it's supposed to be 100% natural. Not sure. The uses are still great but the only thing that turned me off was that smell. I will finish it but I doubt I will buy this brand again.

Comments about Desert Essence 100% Pure Jojoba Oil for Hair, Skin & Scalp, 4 fl oz:

a friend of mine suggested i use this on my face in place of my daily moisturizer. i have oily acne prone skin and have tried everything under the sun to get my cystic acne under control. within 1 week of using this product my skin has almost completely clear and my acne scars are starting to fade! i am thrilled that i finally found something that has saved my skin. and you can't beat the price. if you are on the fence about this product...try it...you won't be disappointed.

          I am happy to find this one, it does everything it says on the product descriptions. And the reviews helped me to start to use for more, on lips, and others. 4oz bottle is small enough for bringing to gym, or traveling, to remove make up and condition hair, before and after shampoo, neck massage, etc.etc.. The price was excellent that it was on sale and I got extra 10% off. I bought 2 to begin with, but, I ordered 3 more while it is on sale. It is fantastic to find multitask product that is very cheep and good! Thank you !

            I use this jojoba oil for everything - once a week pre-conditioning hair treatment (I shampoo my hair every other day), face and as an additive to my body lotion. Though it is an oil based product it does not leave your skin feeling greasy because the jojoba oil absorbs quickly and leaves skin feeling soft. It goes a long way. Very versatile and healthy beauty product to add to any daily regimen.

            I use this product all the time on my skin and love it. Too oily for my hair though but good as a leave in treatment once in a while. I love that its all natural. Oddly I found that this stuff makes a superb lubricant. I put some on my genital and booty area and it works wonders and very long lasting without feeling sticky. Very smooth and never irritates even if it gets inside. It's my favorite product by far. Highly recommend!

                  Comments about Desert Essence 100% Pure Jojoba Oil for Hair, Skin & Scalp, 4 fl oz:

                  I prefer to use coconut oil for my hair

                  I do use this to remove all of my makeup (just follow with your normal face wash)

                  I also use it in place of chapstick, especially after I brush my teeth. After a week or so of using it every night, my lips were no longer chapped. I don't even buy chapstick anymore.

                  Rehydrates lips after using lipstain, adds a little shine without being sticky

                  I've been putting it on my eyelashes and eyebrows, and noticed that the hair isn't breaking off or growing in crazy directions. Looks great!

                    I needed something for my dry scalp and the dry patches on my hairline and face and i honestly was really surprised at how great it moisturizes. It last a long time and although i will always have dry skin it is a noticeable difference. anytime i see a dry patch i take a q-tip and dab the spot and by the morning its no longer there. I mix it with my conditioner when i wash my hair to have more of a deep conditioning effect. i'm sure combining it with lotion will leave your skin silky smooth. My bottle is odorless! i see many people complaining about the smell and i guess it depends on the batch. i honestly can't smell a good nor bad odor its neutral to me. This little bottle is my little miracle worker.
