    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 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.

          I put this in my hair after showering. It makes my hair so soft, and it takes the frizz out. It's not greasy (just don't use too much); I use approximately 3 to 4 drops for my whole head. It has no odor; I did not experience what the previous reveiwer's talked about (how it has an odor). I love it! I also use it on my dry skin and it works very well. It absorbs nicely and feels great!

              This oil has multi-purposes. It is loaded with vitamin E so you can use it as a natural preservative for homemade products. It is great for hair and skin. Instead of buying expensive toxic water-proofer for leather you can use this oil. I use coconut oil to clean and moisturize it. On my shoes/boots I let the coconut oil absorb for several hours and then apply a small amount of jojoba oil.

              Bought for hubby's peeling, easily broken fingernails. He's only been using about a couple of weeks, so it's too soon to tell if it's working on his nails, but he commented about how soft it makes his hands. I started using a week ago & product has done wonders for my cuticles.

              Glowing skin and healthy hair

              from AFG

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

              I bought this with the intention to repair and protect my hair. I wear my hair in a tight bun for 16+ hours a day, 7 days a week for work. My ends are a rough. I apply this to my damp hair after the shower from about the middle of my hair on down, focusing on the ends. I use my fingers to comb it through. I avoid the roots to avoid any greasy look. It detangles and gives a nice, healthy shine to my hair. It also works as a frizz serum. My hair is naturally very curly, but I slick it back for my work bun. My ends seem healthier. At one point, my scalp where my part is got sunburnt and I applied this. The itching and flaking went away immediately. I started using this on my whole face to include under my eyes and it is giving me a really nice glow and does not look greasy at all. I still put my moisturizer over it (for SPF) and my skin looks so healthy and even clearer. I do have combination skin and acne-prone on my cheeks and chin, and this has not triggered any breakouts. I was worried about my mascara running because of the oil, but it hasn't! The environment here is hot, but not very humid so I don't know how it would work in humid weather, but it's worth a shot. You can use this on your hair, face, or body (made my elbows very soft). I am very happy with this purchase.

                    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.
