I had a tough decision trying to decide whether this product needed to be reviewed as an a/s type product or a skin & body care type product. Since jojoba oil is not restricted to a/s use, I decided it best fit this category.
Price - This 4 oz. bottle was purchased from a Whole Foods grocery store and cost around $10. Considering the small amount needed per application, 4 oz. should really last quite some time.
Moisturizing/Quality/Efficacy - Inconceivably Great! When viewed at a molecular level, jojoba oil is nearly identical to sebum, an oil that is naturally secreted by your skin. What could be better for your skin than an oil that it already produces? - During colder weather, my skin tends to get very dry and itchy. This is one of the few products I have found that provides any significant relief.
Packaging - No awards are being handed out in this area. While the packaging and label are very mundane, it does at least have an easy to use spout (product must be squeezed out, not poured).
Over the past few weeks, I have really enjoyed experimenting with this product. I have primarily used it on my face in conjunction with other a/s products, but have also used it as a body lotion after either mixing it with pure vegetable glycerin, another lotion, and/or Rosehip Seed Oil.
The only note of caution when using this product is, less is more. Getting too much product can make your skin look oily (because it is). The product is, however, easy to "dumb down" if you do over-apply. It can be toweled off or you can apply a dusting of Talc which will remove any shiny/oily look or feel.
My favorite combination with this product is Rosehip Seed Oil and then a followup with shaving talc. On days where I use this combo after a shave (which are outnumbering the days when I don't), my face stays incredibly soft and healthy looking for the remainder of the day. I will also re-apply this combination, minus the talc, after washing my face in the evening / before going to bed.
Overall, it's a great product for skin health.
