Product Review: The Jojoba Company Jojoba Oil

I have previously done a post on my Top Five Favourite Beauty Oils, which included the Jojoba oil from the Jojoba Company – and as I truly love this wonder multi-tasking oil so much, I thought it was time to do a full review. Here are my thoughts;

What They Say:
"Youthful skin produces wax esters that are responsible for the deep cleansing and moisturising of skin, hair and nails. Up to 30% of healthy young skin sebum is made up of wax esters. As we grow older, wax ester production begins to slow down. As a result, the functions of wax esters are lost, allowing moisture to escape from skin cells. This begins the aging process of skin.

Jojoba is the only plant known to produce wax esters instead of plant oil. Its molecular structure is similar to the wax esters in youthful skin sebum. Jojoba is naturally hypoallergenic and contains powerful antioxidants, Omega 6 & 9 fatty acids, and Vitamins A, D and E. As a result, when jojoba is applied to skin, it puts back what aging takes away, working immediately to begin restoring youthful looking skin, naturally.

Jojoba moisturises lips, face, hands, cuticles, body and hair, leaving skin smooth and hair silky. Apply jojoba to wet or dry skin, hair and nails".

RRP: 30ml/85ml/100ml/200ml - $19.95/$29.95/$29.95/$39.95 – Available from selected health food stores and chemists.

What I Say:
The Jojoba oil from The Jojoba Company Jojoba Oil is Australian made from 100% Natural Australian Jojoba, and it contains no harmful detergents, chemicals, parabens, artificial fragrances, colours, PEGs, mineral oils, sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS), or animal products, which instantly makes me give it bonus points.

The Jojoba oil is such a versatile oil that can be used to moisturise and nourish ageing skin. It can be used as a massage oil, to remove make-up, to relieve and heal rashes and to condition hair, scalp, hands and cuticles.

Having combination skin prone to breakouts, and as my skin is a little oilier during summer, I was a little worried using this oil in my face but I have to say that it left my skin feeling extremely soft and moisturised , although a little on the greasy side. Worn under makeup, I found my skin started to get a little too shiny too quickly and my makeup would slide a lot earlier than it normally would so I would really recommend using it as a moisturiser only for those with very dry skin, or perhaps during winter, when skin tends to be a little drier.

I started using the Jojoba oil on my décolletage, which is starting to show the ageing effects of the Australian sun, with some smaller lines and pigmentation. And I have to say that I am impressed, as the décolletage area has really benefited from the added moisture, looking healthier and firmer, whilst it is still too soon to say if it has made any difference to pigmentation and fine lines.

Makeup Remover
I used Jojoba oil as makeup remover for waterproof eye makeup including mascara and it removed all traces easily without rubbing or pulling the sensitive eye area, and it leaves the delicate area soft and moisturised.

Nails and Cuticles
The Jojoba oil also works fantastic as a nail and cuticle oil, and only the tiniest amount is required. Although it does take a little while to absorb, it does leave cuticles and hands looking and feeling hydrated and healthy.


The Jojoba oil also works brilliantly as a hair treatment to condition dry hair, either put in the hair prior to shampooing, and it will have the same effect as a the old fashioned ‘hot oils’.

When used as a treatment in dry hair, only a very small amount, otherwise the hair will end up looking very greasy, but I see that as a good thing, as then my bottle will last much longer!

My hair and in particularly dry ends instantly absorbed the oil as an intense treatment, smoothing down any frizz, and leaving my hair looking healthy and glossy, giving it a much needed moisture boost, without weighing it down. And after washing my hair, it still felt and looked healthier and can truly see the benefits from frequent use of this oil.


The Jojoba oil comes in a glass bottle with a pump dispenser, which makes it very easy to use, although it tends to drip a little which can make the glass bottle a little oily and slippery. It has a nice subtle scent and natural scent, which once absorbed the scent completely disappears. The concentrated oil is easy to use and therefore only the smallest amount is needed and therefore a bottle will seriously last you a very long time.

This Jojoba oil is truly an essential multi-tasker that should be kept in every bathroom!

Have you ever tried jojoba oil? What is your favourite multi-tasking product?



  1. How does jojoba compare to argan oil for hair use?

    Very helpful review as always.

    1. I think argain oil has more moisturising and repairing benefits for the hair, I think....but what I like about the jojoba oil is how versatile the oil is that you can use it for so many different things from skin, to hair and nails!

  2. I have never tried jojoba oil but heard lots about it. I'm hesitant to try oils but this sounds good :)

    1. I am also hesitant using oils in my face, and this was also a little too greasy in my face for my liking. Perhaps in winter when my face is generally a little drier!

  3. I love oils. I'd be hesitant to use it on my face though as I too have combination skin.

    1. I am the same, as too greasy or too concentrated products make my combination skin break out, but I did find it great to use on my décolletage, and so concentrated too.

  4. Jojoba is not an oil at all, it is a wax, so give it a go. Don't believe me google it!!
