I use this product, and ONLY this product, to clear up my clogged pores. My clogging was awful! I have very oily skin - thick oil, too. The jojoba oil will 'trick' your face into thinking it's producing enough oil (sebum), so your face will actually slow down its own production of sebum, so therefore, you have less oil to deal with. Even though jojoba oil is an oil, it's so close to our natural oils, that it does not add to the problem, but rather manipulates it. If you put a quarter size on your fingertips and lightly rub your face all over, for about 15 - 30 minutes (no kidding, but you need to work it in your pores after having had it warm up to your body's heat). Rub slowly, and in small circles, all over your face (not your eye area), your neck, behind your ears, behind your neck, and in all the crevices, even your lips. You will notice some gunk in your pores coming out. Just wipe this away, gently, with a non-soapy cloth. Do not wash your face afterwards. Leave the oil on, after having wiped off any excess with a non-soapy cloth. It needs more time to do the rest of its job. You many notice a few whiteheads, usually just within the first few days, as the oil is working its way down into the deeper recesses of your pores, but if you ROUTINELY put it on before you go to bed, this will end quickly, and then you may only see one or two spots a month. Don't scrub them, but they will be broken open, and raised enough to be wiped away after being steamed in your morning shower. Adding Lavendar & Tea Tree Essential Oil helps. It's all I use, and I don't need to wear base foundation anymore. I will wear minerals, but just a light dusting of powder. Run some oil (dime size) through your hair before bed. Won't grease up your pillow, and it washes out so easily. Concentrating on your ends.

Unfortunately, I did not experience the wonderful skin clearing benefits that other reviewers had when using this product. I used this as a moisturizer for over a month, and instead of "purging" my skin and then clearing up, it gave me constant cystic-type pimples that are finally going away now that I've stopped using it. I wish I could say that it was a great hair moisturizer, but all it did was make my hair super flat, even when used in my shampoo.

Comments about Desert Essence Organic Jojoba Oil, 4 fl oz:

I combine jojoboa oil with grapeseed oil to make a face wash. I have oily skin and cystic acne and am always looking for a new product to rid me of my terrible skin. This combination of oils has really amazed me and best of all, this is so much healthier on my skin than tons of chemicals. I combine the oils in my hand and apply to my face. It removes eye makeup, foundation, etc., so easily. I apply a hot wash cloth over the oil on my face to steam it for a deep clean and then I wipe the oil and all my make up off. I apply a small amount at night after cleansing to moisturize and sleep with it on. It is greasy which is why I do not use it in the morning to moisturize because it is too greasy to then apply makeup. But I have noticed a huge decrease in acne and my face is not nearly as shiny by the end of the day.

I have also used it in my hair as a deep treatment and it works well in adding shine and taming fly aways.

Comments about Desert Essence Organic Jojoba Oil, 4 fl oz:

I use this on my face and skin every morning after the shower. All natural, organic, and keeps skin soft and smooth. No worries about oily feeling because it soaks in the skin immediately and leaves no residue on clothes. This is often used in hospitals because no residue is left on pillows, sheets, etc.

      I use this oil to dilute and create blends with my essential oils. It glides on and soaks into my skin and leaves it feeling like silk, not greasy.

      I have a very sensitive scalp. It itches constantly to the point where i scratch it to blood. It is extremely dry. I add some of this to my conditioner or just apply straight to my scalp. I haven't had a problem since!

        This product is a good moisturizer. I mainly use it with my lotions. Especially good to mix in with lotion during the winter months. Also good as a moisturizer for natural hair. If you have sensitive skin, do not put this product on your face. It caused some break outs for me. But everywhere else is fine.

        I use this on my hair and was not really impressed but i had just used a face scrub and then i put this on my face after and it was wonderful. It may cause some people to break out but not me. I love it! Since I will be using it for my face and not my hair it is more than enough.

            This a very light and natural way to moisturize your skin. I use it on my face after washing with honey and baking soda. Since I have started using it I have gotten several compliments on how nice my skin looks plus it feels great.

              I use this on my skin right after a shower and on my naturally curly hair. Doesn't have a scent or it's so light a scent it doesn't clash with other scented products I wear. Leaves my skin feeling soft and moisturized. Not oily or greasy feeling at all. I use it on my hair whether I'm going natural curly or blow drying it straight.

                This works great for my sensitive skin. My skin gets irritated easily by even gentle/sensitive lotions. The jojoba oil, though...I can just rub it onto my skin, it soaks right in, and there's NO irritation, whatsoever! The only downfall is that it doesn't smell great at first, but the smell isn't strong and it doesn't linger.
