    Does anyone know where else I can find Desert Essence products?



    I use Desert Essence's Jojoba Oil (100% pure) every day. I use it as a moisturizer, hair conditioner and makeup remover! Its price is fantastic at SGD20+ for 120ml worth of product. Now that I'm running low, I need to stock up!

    Has anyone else tried out items from this line, especially their Shea Butter products?
    Hey! I found this site and maybe you can consider getting it from here. I just chanced upon it xD http://www.vitacost.com/productresul...000091+2008034 or https://www.desertessence.com/bath-body

Have tried it on my face and find that it doesn't trigger any breakouts, but I'll use up my existing moisturisers before switching to this.

    Anyone tried the Oil Cleansing Method with castor oil and jojoba?
    I haven't tried it but I am trying to get castor oil to go with olive oil since I have that at home you can check out DIY: Oil Cleansing Method for Clear, Happy Skin! - YouTube so yeah :D

    just wanna share my experience
    i started 3 weeks ago with the dessert essence pure 100% jojoba oil
    first 2,5 weeks i mixed it with tea tree oil, 6:1. 6 drops of jojoba+1 drop of tea tree. drop the mixture in my palm and rub with my other palm then press onto face.
    first week i used 1 drop. second week i used 1 and a bit more drop, then 2 drops.
    in my third week, i change the formula to 5:1. use 2 drops
    so far, so good

    dunno if it purged, although i did have some little bumps as within the first 2 week i also include mask with st.ives mineral clay mask
    now i think the purging is from the st.ives
    coz i stop the mask and no more pimple come out

    great moisturizer...my skin type has back to normal skin
    firsly my skin was oily, then after starting BP, become flaky and dry.
    before trying jojoba, i was in aloe vera for 3 weeks, and it was ok for first weeks, but then, my skin was tight even i applied alot.

    after that, i dare myself to try the jojoba
    hope it will be good as now.

    kny4eva Im using this : http://www.drugstore.com/products/pr...48&catid=10329 for hair, skin and scalp

    It is useful to moisturise hair and dry parts of the skin like knees and elbows. Not tried on face yet though. Had a very very bad breakout using RHO and I've since sworn off using oil on face.

    thispolkadot Im using Desert Essence Jojoba Oil from drugstore spree and so far so good. I dont apply it directly on my face as Im very prone to breakouts. If you want to try using it on the face, spread a tiny amount on your palms and press lightly on the face.

    Remember to start off using a very very very small amount.

    On hair, I apply on damp (not wet) hair after washing. Dont apply too much if not it becomes oily and streaky.

    i just read it here from aubrey organic's official website:

    Muji sells jojoba oil in the form of cleansing oil. I can't seem to find the oil itself at the stores. Anyone know if this cleansing oil can be used as moisturizer?

    Desert Essence Jojoba Oil is good as a skin moisturiser. It absorbs really quickly and leaves your skin soft.
