No need to take the entire bathroom cabinet with you as Jojoba oil is an all round amazing natural product which is ideal for even the most sensitive or allergy prone skin.
Ideal as a moisturiser for body, face, nails, lips, hands and even hair. Jojoba is the smallest molecule (almost identical to the human skin sebum, ) and so is easily absorbed.
Skin health is maintained by the oily solution sebum; 25-30% of the skin's sebum is made up of wax esters. The prime role of wax esters is to hold moisture in the skin, which keeps skin looking and feeling firm. As we hit our early 20's, our production of wax esters starts to decrease, allowing moisture to escape from skin cells. This begins the ageing process of skin, so moisturising becomes essential to maintain healthy, young looking skin. Jojoba is the only plant known to produce wax esters similar to those in our skin.
Jojoba is naturally hypoallergenic and contains powerful antioxidants, Omega 6 and 9 fatty acids, with Vitamins A, D and E. Remarkably, when applied to skin, the wax esters in jojoba provide similar nurturing and moisturising properties as our own sebum. Skin recognises jojoba as its own and lets it in to deliver active ingredients into the deeper layers of our skin.

I absolutely loved this oil. I have used oils before and I tend to prefer using them instead of moisturisers for my face and hands as they are lighter and absorb easier. This one had a delicate smell and wasn't too gloopy on application. I used this daily before applying make up and also after cleansing my face, and I feel it made my skin appear more radiant and I have I don't need to apply moisturiser throughout the day as often to problem areas (under my eyes) when using this product. I have also used this on my hands when dry in the winter and it immediately relieves, and it is also quite handy when I want to make the ends of my hair appear less dry. A little amount in the palm of my hand and wiped through my hair gets rid of any stray hairs and adds a little sheen to my fringe. I will definitely be buying this again! (I had the 30ml size, which was perfect to fit in my make up bag, although I think I will purchase a larger size in future).
