Pros: decreases acne breakouts, very moisturising, softens and reduces fine lines, doesn’t leave behind an oily residue
Cons: a little more expensive than most oils
Jojoba oil is a liquid wax that comes from the seed of the Jojoba shrub. It’s very similar to the natural oils our bodies produce, so if you have oily skin it is believed you can ‘trick it’ into producing less oil.
I use pure Jojoba oil purchased from online auction websites. This is one of my favourite oils. It has a pleasant smell and is thoroughly moisturising. It softens skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines. It’s a great moisturiser for sensitive skin too.
It has an indefinite shelf life without degrading, which more than compensates for its cost.
