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:

    I have always had dry and flaky skin and scalp. I put this on my scalp a half hour before I shampoo with an oil type shampoo (Lorie'l). I dry brush my skin first then apply it to my skin...it feels a little oily at first but it sinks in quite fast. I do this about two to three times a week and it makes my skin feel normal...not dry.

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

    Even though this product is for hair, too, I mainly am stating facts about skin use. I initially bought this product for my grandson with eczema. It has been a godsend. I use it after his bath on damp skin to moisturize his skin. It works beautifully and locks in the moisture that lasts throughout the night. It is safe to use on his face even around the eye area. In the winter (because his skin is drier) I use the oil in place of soap for bathing and it cleans remarkably well. Once I forgot to reorder the jojoba oil and that was a very big mistake. His skin quickly became irritated and itchy. Now I have it on Auto Delivery to assure a good supply is always on hand. Since it works so well with my grandson, I have started using it to cleanse my face. It does a wonderful job and leaves my skin feeling so soft and not greasy. Another plus.....it does not stain.

        I use this during the winter to cleanse my face at night. My skin gets drier during the wintertime, even though it's not very cold in this area of Texas. Using this instead of my regular cleanser ensures my skin is very soft. It really does not leave the skin greasy once you rinse it off, and even removes mascara. Nice product.

            I have many great smelling shower gel products but I need extra moisture in the winter. Now I add a few drops of the jojoba directly to the bottle and it makes a heavenly difference. It is so rich and comforting I wish I would have discovered it years ago! I highly recommend it.

              I have very fine, very dry hair, and I'm allergic to fragrances. I started using this product, and my hair has never been softer or shinier. It does not make me itch. I branched out and started using it as a moisturizer on my body and it works great. It makes my skin baby soft, and it's not greasy. My hairdresser noticed that I have less breakage since using this product. In my opinion, it does not have a smell, and that's fine with me. It also makes my hair actually "lay down" and not frizz out. It doesn't make it flat, it just takes the frizz out. I love, love, love this product.

                I purchased this oil to use on the ends of my dry, thick, curly hair after conditioning in order to lock in some moisture. It does a great job on that, but it's uses have blossomed. I now add it to my dab of body wash each morning for extra moisture. Also, I add a few drops to my post-shower lotion to give it an extra kick. It is light enough that it doesn't slow down the absorption of the lotion. I've read many articles suggesting this as a moisturizer for the face, but I haven't been brave enough to try that yet.

                      I bought a small dropper bottle from The Container Store to dispense just a drop at a time, as the flip-cap on the bottle can get a bit messy for storage. I like to use about 3 drops on my face each night, after removing my make up, and then add as much as I need on my hands and cuticles to soften them - especially in winter months - during the night. There is no irritation, even if I need to use it near my eyes, and there is no smell, which is great for people like me, who are sensitive. I have also tried removing my make up with jojoba oil on a tissue or cotton pad, and it works great, especially on waterproof mascaras and other hard-to remove stuff. I love that there are no other ingredients in this and I can use it as often as necessary without worrying about clogging pores or other problems. I've been using this product for several years now. A bottle has lasted me a long time, but I only use it on my face and hands, though I use it daily. I may expand my uses, after recently reading about its many benefits.
