100% Pure Jojoba Oil
I just recently learned about jojoba oil, and I decided to give it a try. I'm loving it! The very first thing I did with it was to put some as recommended in all of our bottles of shampoo, body lotion, hand soap and shower gel. It helps all of these things to clean without being so drying, and they even feel better while using them, like softer and smoother. I also put it on my damp face at night before bed after washing my face, and it is making my skin look fresher and better (and definitely feels smoother and more moisturized)! I can see a visible difference when I get up in the mornings. I'm sure I'll be finding other uses for it, too!

Desert Essence 100% Pure Jojoba Oil
I use Jojoba oil in my skin and hair products - a few drops go a long way. I am happy with how it makes my hair look and how it makes my skin feel. It has even improved the health of my eyelashes and eyebrows. Without spending a large amount of money to achieve what some costly products say they will do - Jojoba oil is a wonderful way and easy on the pocket book to achieve good results, at least it has been for me.

I use this with other oils on my skin and scalp to help with growth, etc. It works and it smells nice too!

Glad I tried
This oil is light and absorbs easily. I apply it directly to my damp face as a moisturizer. It makes my skin glow and I love that look. I also mix it in with African shay butter and make a whipped butter to apply to my body. It is wonderful.

Where have I been? I've heard about jojoba oil for 40 years. I just tried it and now I'm mad at myself for not trying it sooner. It absorbs very quickly and leaves no oily feel. I put just a little through my hair and my hair feels like it did when I was a teenager, soft and manageable,. No greasiness. Amazing. I've tried other oils, but nothing comes close. Do yourself a favor and try it.

I use it on my skin and hair, and I absolutely love it. It absorbs quickly and leaves skin soft. I will definitely reorder.

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.

better than any lotion, great for making scrubs or adding to condtioner or base for lotion!

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.
