JOJOBA OIL?!?....WHAT IS IT?
This oil is derived from the Jojoba plant which is more like a bush or shrub and comes originally from Arizona, southern California, and northwestern Mexico. The seed is actually made up of 50% by weight! When it its unrefined state, the oil may appear as a clear, golden liquid and usually has a type of nut-like smell. As it doesn't have triglycerides like other vegetable oils, it has an excellent shelf life- especially when compared to those made from safflower or grape seed oil for example!
WHAT JOJOBA OIL IS USED FOR AND WHAT IT DOES:
Jojoba oil can now be found in many cosmetics and hair care products and can be used directly on the skin, hair, or cuticles as a moisturizer! A less-common fact about Jojoba oil is that it's a very good fungicide and can be used to help control mildew! It's also edible, yet non-caloric and non-digestible...this means that it's going to leave your intestines in a quick and probably not very enjoyable manner :/ I would NOT recommend ingesting Jojoba oil at all! It's even been looked at as an alternative and affordable fuel that could be a possible substitute for diesel fuel!

This organic Jojoba Oil fro Foxbrim was a great addition to my moisturizing routine and I'm glad I gave it the chance :) It's a very similar product and focus to the very popular Argan Oils are the market currently and is very affordable at under $17! The bottle is a nice quality with a good glass dropper that reaches down into the entire bottle. At 4 oz., you are getting what you paid for too and since it doesn't take much I am going to have the bottle for a quite a bit of time!
I liked the oil the first time that I used it as a moisturizer for some of the dryer areas of my skin on my face, neck, hands, arms, and legs! It works really well and doesn't leave the annoying residue that I sometimes noticed while using Argan Oil. It's odorless and really colorless which is a nice combination :)
It dries and absorbs into the skin in under 2 minutes too which means you can put on your makeup and additional products shortly thereafter with no issues. As for residue- it just doesn't leave ANY and I found this probably the most surprising thing about the product. Since it IS an oil, that would be expected- but that wasn't the case AT ALL!
The Jojoba oil from Foxbrim is an excellent choice if you are looking for a good, clean and organic moisturizer that will last throughout they day- this is the product for you! It's VERY affordable and at 4 oz. should be a product that you will have for a good while in your beauty arsenal! Foxbrim also fully supports their products and guarantees that if for any reason at all you are NOT satisfied, they provide a FULL refund with NO questions asked!
