Leave-In Hair Conditioner
I tried this product based on promotion as a leave-in hair conditioner. I am a 53 year old white male with thinning, but curly, sometimes frizzy hair. This product leaves my hair looking oily despite how little I use. I can't recommend it as a leave-in hair conditioner for a person of my hair type. As a body or hand emollient it may work well.

Great product and Swanson has the best price. I mix this with my essentials oil and use on my hair. Swanson has great customer service also.

Love This Oil
Desert Essence brand organic jojoba oil is great stuff.
In addition to being organic, it is also vegan/vegetarian, and the price on Swanson is competitive, as usual.
I use it on my very sensitive skin and hair as a moisturizer.
For example, before shampooing hair, massage it into scalp, and all through hair.
Wait a bit to let it absorb, and then shampoo as usual. You will love the results.
It is also far healthier, and cheaper than using other conditioners and lotions full of unnecessary chemicals, etc.
For a skin moisturizer, use it on face and body as needed. I even put a little under my eyes.
It is absorbed quickly, and a little bit goes a long way.
Jojoba is also excellent when used as a carrier oil.

Good quality organic jojoba
This is a very nice oil at a more than fair price for organic jojoba. Not sure it abosrbs as well as the Swanson brand, but I have purchased several bottles and like it very much. Great as a carrier oil.

my go to skin care product
I started using since I moved to NY in winter. I got really dry skin and itchy. I was using jojoba oil for hair first for California water and started using my skin after shower before towel dry. Oil helps to keep water on my skin and put body cream after. after about a week, my skin became better and since then, I can't live without it. I use it to my husband dry head skin before shower and I use it to my face also. it keeps my skin really good and not dry. I tried other brands but I couldn't stand the smell.

I am very happy with the desert essence and the swanson jojoba oil. I use it as a carrier oil for essential oils, I use it as a moisturizer on my sensitive skin, including on my face, and I rub it into my scalp and on my hair before I go to bed.

Jojoba Oil is GREAT
This oil is great for both facial and body use. You can use in tandem with your lotion or by itself. I have tried a few different oils on my face and jojoba does not clog my pores (almond does for sure). I would really recommend this if you have sensitive or dry skin. In the summer my skin is oily, and doesn't cause me any cosmetic problems while I use it during the hot months.
The only downside to this bottle is the opening where the oil comes out, while small, is not protected with a rubber mouth (that will only pour out when you squeeze). So if you drop the bottle, like I have, it will spill out.

Organic Jojoba Oil wonderful!
This brand of Jojoba oil, Dessert Essence, is really wonderful to use. Your skin will feel softer and helps with the dryness of winter. Swanson's price is much lower than what others offer, and I really like this one best! Will reorder and have already bought 2 bottles, will keep this on hand! Thank you Swansons for selling this great product at a great price.

Best Moisturizer for Sensitive Combination Skin!
Yes it may seem pricey at first for a small bottle, but this bottle will last you for nearly a year! I use this every day (and sometimes at night) as a moisturizer and it does NOT clog pores, even though it is an oil. Jojoba oil is the most similar to our own skin oil (sebum), so it actually helps maintain your skin. It is also great for dry hair and is not as heavy on the skin/hair as coconut oil. I LIVE by this product and will not trust any other for moisturizing and taking care of my skin!

Finally found a moisturizer
I have dry skin in the winter and this solved that problem. Also use for my dry lips and hair. It's a keeper! The only problem is I don't like how it dispenses. Would rather have a pump dispenser but that won't stop me from buying this again.

Amazing multi-purpose oil!
So glad I tried this product, it is my new go-to multi -purpose oil. It is an amazing oil treatment for my dry hair. I also use it to moisturize my lips and as a blemish treatment. My usually chapped lips are now super smooth.

A Pure Elixir For Hair
I use this product mostly for my hair and scalp. I have a very dry and fuzzy hair. I started to loose hair in mid-20s. Now, I massage my scalp and hair with Jojobo oil three times a week. I also add this oil in my homemade hair masks. It is not messy and it does not have a disturbing smell. My hair looks healthier and stronger. With a healthier scalp, I guess, I stopped losing my hair. Lately, I also use this product on my lips. It is great. I am planning to replace my eye makeup remover with this one.

A must have multi-tasker!
I love this product for so many reasons. I use it to moisturize my face, remove eye makeup, soothe chapped lips, and also to tame flyaways. Desert Essence Jojoba Oil has cleared my skin of breakouts and leaves it feeling fresh and smooth. To top it all off, its completely natural and cruelty free!!

Its the best oil I have found for dry skin type. I use it twice daily. It is odor less and the skin absorbs the oil pretty quickly.

Makes hair soft and strong
Okay, so i have been looking for another signature oil, other than coconut that is great for the hair leaving it soft w/o the greasy feel. this is it. i put it on before i got to bed at night and wake up the next morning with soft bouncy curls. if you are a curly girl, this is it. this has a great smell, it reminds me of peanut butter for some reason. not a strong smell at all but if you put ur nose to the top oh yeah peanut butter pops up in my mind and i love the feeling it gives my hair and at a good price b/c a little goes a long way

I love the Desert Essence organic jojoba oil! I use it as an all-over skin moisturizer almost daily (it totally has replaced the need for lotion). I also use it to clean clogged pores on my face. Surprisingly, it leaves no oily residue, only soft and smooth skin! As mentioned, I use it on my face (my skin is a little oily) and it clears away clogged pores without causing more break-outs! I have also used a little of the oil in my hair to smooth fly-aways and moisturize dry ends. Overall, this is a great product and has become an essential in my life!
