What is it?
Derived from the nut of the jojoba plant, a perennial that thrives in the North American deserts, it’s a beauty-boosting oil that’s rich in vitamins A, E and D, as well as fatty acids and antioxidants.
With a consistency that’s similar to the oils naturally produced in your skin, jojoba oil is easily absorbed and doesn’t leave behind a greasy feeling, This makes it an ideal choice as a lightweight moisturizer that can be used year-round. Jojoba oil is also naturally antibacterial and non-comedogenic, meaning that it’s safe to use for acne-prone skin and won’t clog pores.
A versatile oil that can be used for everything from removing makeup to nourishing dry scalps, jojoba oil is one top pick to add to your skincare routine.
Why shoppers love it
This affordable beauty oil has earned an impressive reputation online, racking up a 4.7-star rating from more than 25,000 reviews worldwide. The USDA Organic-certified oil has impressed its fans with its softening and moisturizing abilities, and unbeatable value for money.
“It was a really cold winter and no moisturizer was working on my face. I did some research on oils and decided to try out jojoba oil. After a day or two of use, my skin felt a million times better!” said one reviewer. “Make sure to apply on damp skin or it doesn't work as well. You can even use it before you apply makeup — use a few drops and let it sink into your skin. It helps makeup look much smoother.”
“This is very much worth the small price I paid for this product! My nails are very brittle from gel manicures and I'm almost positive this oil single-handedly fixed my nails,” adde another. “They are no longer brittle or cracked after applying oil every day. I apply the oil and proceed to rub it into each nail bed and it absorbs pretty well.”
While some reviewers noted that they loved the convenience of the glass dropper that dispenses the oil, others have noted that they aren’t a fan of this method.
“Seems to be a good oil, sinks in and leaves no shine. I use this morning and night. My only criticism is the bottle dispenser,” said one reviewer. “It’s a glass dropper and it drips the moment it’s removed from the bottle. It would be so much better if it had a pump dispenser.”
At just $15, this versatile beauty oil is a great addition to your skincare routine. Whether you’re looking for a gentle makeup remover, a lightweight moisturizer, or a nourishing hair oil, this little bottle does it all.
With a light, nutty fragrance, it’s ideal for including as a carrier oil in fragrance, and works well on all skin types. As with any new skincare product though, be sure to spot test in a small area before incorporating the Cliganic Organic Jojoba Oil into your skincare routine.
