100% Pure Jojoba Oil
I was first introduced to Desert Essence Jojoba Oil when I was in Arizona about 30 years ago. The instructions were to put it on my fingertips and massage it into my scalp. I liked the results. I still do that today, only I use it more liberally now, and I rub the excess throughout my hair, and on my face, neck, arms, shoulders, torso, hands, and cuticles. Personally, I find that everything they say and write about fabulous Jojoba Oil in the informative / descriptive material that appears with the various Jojoba Oil products on this website is true. It's not often that can be said about any product. I highly recommend Jojoba Oil for healthy thick hair and fabulous skin, all without an oily or greasy patina. Jojoba Oil is really unique and amazing stuff. . . . And all things considered, very reasonably priced from Swanson Health Products.

I put this on when I finish showering, while my skin is wet. It moisturizes my arms and legs without the need for lotion. Recently My mother age 79 was provided with this product as she stepped out of the shower. She too has been using it and likes it.

A miracle oil
I love this product. I use this as the base recipe for my children's hair care product. Jojoba oil has allowed their hair to grow along with balancing their natural hair oils. I would recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a good hair treatment.

Desert Essence Jojoba Oil
Excellent moisturizer this...Seems to be more of a liquid wax than oil..remarkably similar to the natural oil secreted by our skin

This a great product!
I use the Desert Essence Jojoba Oil as a moisturizer for my face, body & hair. It does not leave my skin or hair looking oily, but feels so nourishing. Also, works great as a facial cleanser!

Yes, it is pure oil
Maybe it is good for my skin, but it smell awful, and it is oily (which is no coincidence... I just can't get used to using an oil instead of a cream... a cream feels better for some reason)

Love this oil, I use it in my hair in a mixture with butters. It works great with my curly/coily hair. Absorbs into my skin beautifully.

I love this oil. My skin gets very dry in the winter. When I put this on my face, it just soaks right in. I've also used it on my legs and arms and then follow up with moisturizing cream to seal it in.

Love that Swanson provides good qulaity products at amazing prices. Again, I use this to mix with my hair conditioner to add an extra pep in my conditioning process. Also use this in making my own lotion using Shea Butter.

I love this essential oil! I dilute it in a glass spray bottle with approx 1 part water: 3 parts oil (shake well) and use as an all over moisturizer. It sinks in quickly and doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy. Swanson's has the best price too, as usual!

I've been using this for a few years now. Actually I put some Jojoba in my hand, then a dab of Desert Essence coconut body lotion, a couple drops of declorinated water( to thin it a bit) and then apply after showers or shaving.Makes your skin feel great and it goes a long way. Swanson rocks!

Picked this up at a bodega by my house randomly & fell in love. Couldn't find it anywhere after I ran out. Thank you Swanson's for having this!!! I use it on my skin & it makes it so beautiful. I'm so happy to have found it on here. Thank you!

Moisturizing and not greasy
Wonderful to smooth over skin after a shower.
Does not leave an oily residue. Seems to disappear into the skin and moisturizes.

Its not good,neither bad.
As far as this product goes, i have to say im not really a big fan. From the smell,to the oil itself.. it just doesn't do it for me.

I am neither for nor against this product. I did not feel any benefit when using this product but it also did not harm me. I tried to use it directly on my scalp and my skin but it did not moisturize as well as castor oil or coconut oil which I also use on my skin. It just left it dry. I do use it in other haircare recipes. I am blase about jojoba oil though. I will probably only continue to buy it just because it works as a carrier oil when used with essential oils in addition to olive oil, castor, coconut, etc. On its own, I just was not impressed.

The description of this product is very accurate. It really does moisturize without leaving you feeling oily. My skin looks better just after a few weeks use. It lasts quite a while too, a little goes a long way. I still have plenty leftover and will continue to use it. The great price from Swanson is a plus.

If you use this on dry skin, you'll get a greasy sheen. I live in a very dry climate, where my skin's tight after I bathe, so I rub a little on wet skin (a little goes a long way) and towel off, and it's better than any lotion I've tried. A small bottle, used in this way, lasts me several weeks. I have never tried it on my hair because I don't want it to look greasy, but its great on skin.

Left Hangin Dry
I generally love jojoba oil, but I felt this product was just OK. It works well for shine and moisture when I use it with my conditioner on WET hair. However, on my DRY hair it justs makes it shiny and oily and doesn't really moisturize my hair. It could just be my hair type (4a) and I may just need to find another moisturizer. I will continue to use it during my co-washes and deep conditionings, but I won't use this for daily use.

Love me some Pure Jojoba Oil
I have use Pure Jojoba Oil for over 25 years it used to be so hard to find so happy its more main stream I use it on my face/body/hair, love it!

I use this daily - even in the summer- to keep my skin soft and flake free. Use it after a shower to lock in moisture and it works as well as any other higher priced body oil out there. I add my favorite essential oil to create a personal fragrance. I also add it to my Morrocan Oil hair care product - works great!

This is a fabulous oil and a great price for it.

Great oil for the skin
I use this right after a shower. It works. My skin is soft and stays that way until the next application. I love it!

Definitely An Oil
A few drops of this make a nice all-natural, single-ingredient solution for fly-away hair, especially right after shampooing. However, jojoba IS an oil; be prepared to have to wash your hair again by the next day.
I can't recommend this as a skin moisturizer, though it would make a great massage oil, as it remains slippery and is not quickly (ever?) absorbed into the skin.

Love this stuff.
I often put some in my hair after I shower and all over my chest and arms. Leaving everything feeling very soft and smooth. I do not wash it off and it doesn't feel sticky or oily at all.
I wish the nozzle was different. I sometimes pour out too much, a nozzle that allowed drop by drop application would be nice.
I should have gotten two bottles. Will definitely buy again.
