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.

      I use this as the base oil for my hair treatment. It works great. I do have more oily than normal hair the day after the treatment, but that is to be expected. After the second wash, all is back to normal.

      I use this for skin and hair. I combine it with a moisturizer and sunscreen. On my hair I put it on at night and wash normally in the morning. Use lightly on thin hair as a little goes a long way.

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

        This is a great, light-weight oil that quickly absorbs into your skin. It doesn't have much of a fragrance at all, and the best part is it has so many uses! Where do I begin?

        Hair:
        It works great as a deep conditioning treatment for your hair. I apply it before washing, leaving it for at least 20 minutes, or sometimes overnight wrapped up in a bun or braid and covered. It washes out clean, does not leave any residue behind, and makes your hair soft, shiny, and healthy. Sometimes, I also add a little to my ends before putting my hair up in a bun (I am in the military) and I feel it keeps it moisturized and protected from the damage caused by scrunchies. I have drastically reduced the amount of split ends I have since using this.

        Skin:
        It is an amazing body moisturizer. Use this after the shower, at night, if you want amazingly soft skin. It absorbs fast so you don't have to worry about making a mess. Sometimes I add a drop or two to my normal body lotion when I want extra moisturization.

        Face:
        I alternate between this and 100% Organic Argan oil on my face, after washing, at night. I wouldn't recommend using it in the morning since it is oil and doesn't have SPF, but as a nighttime moisturizer it is awesome. It doesn't clog my pores or cause break outs and it makes skin super soft.

        The only downside to me is the bottle. I wish it had a pump of some sort that dispenses smaller amounts and that didn't require you to turn it upside down to get it out. I mean, it is oil, so it can get a little messy at times, but that isn't enough of a downside to not use this great product. I already have a second bottle on hand so I don't run out!

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

          I love jojoba oil! My hair is very damaged from too much coloring and styling. Its also very long. The only way I keep it from being a tangled frizzy mess is with this oil. I just rub about 3 drops between my palms and them smooth is through the ends of my hair. If I put it on while my hair is still damp, I may use a bit more. Beware of using too much though, it will just look like you didn't shower.

          I highly recomend this for people with sensitive skin or perfume senstitivities.

          Jojoba oil is superior to much more expensive products in terms of smoothing, detangling and adding shine.

                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.
