JOJOBA OIL

Pin It


Its pronounced as the "HO-HO-BA" oil. I had read great many reviews and articles about this oil as to how good it is for the skin and hair. Finally i thought i would give it a try. The oil has somewhat same quality as the human sebum and becoz of that it can trick our skin into believing that its producing enough oil thereby reducing the oil slick that mounts up on one's face as the day goes by. I have extremely oily skin and no matter what i try (cleanse, tone, moisturise) the whole hoopla .........i still end up with the oilies and as a matter of fact am soooooooooo veryyyyy tired seeing my face dark and dull most of the time.

So in the end i mustered up the courage to put oil on my oily face(biggest mistake???????) and waited for my face to turn super oily. But to my pleasant surprise my face did not turn super oily and inturn the oil production was curbed to a good extent. I would not say 100% and i don't expect that either coz there is no way i can control my oily skin. But this oil did help me and is helping me quite a bit. I religiously use it now.

The product that i use comes in a small bottle. It contains 5 ml of the product. It is provided with a dropper. The product itself is very runny and not the typical oil stuff. I bought it from a medical store and it wasn't costly at all.

How i apply it:- I take the dropper provided along with the product and put one drop of oil in my palm and rub it with both my palms and then apply it on to my face and i make sure that it doesn't leave an oily residue and that the whole thing gets absorbed super fast. After that i proceed with my moisturising routine.


Will i repurchase it??? Yes ofcourse as long as it helps with my oily skin i definitely will.




So oily skinned ppl like me can give this product a try and do let me know as to whether this works for you or not. ciao.....

its called DR.URJITA JAIN'S. well, i bought it coz i wanted jojoba oil and i wasn't really specific about the one i wanted. saw this and bought it coz it has a cute dropper and all. looked very hygenic. you can buy it from any medical or beauty store(just make sure what you buy is "pure" jojoba oil. thats all). mine cost me around 35 rs(indian money)hope this helps. take care.

hey!
I came across your blog quite accidentally....I just graduated from medical school in Russia and I'm currently doing my internship....I have an extremely oily face too so I found your quest for mattifying products really useful!! :)...I saw a video on YT in which the woman uses Milk of Magnesia to curb the oiliness of her face....after moisturizing u need just a tiny amount....I've tried it and it keeps the oil away for like 4-5 hrs!
Also I wanted to ask what moisturizer do you use and if you could do a post on your skin care regime..thanks a lot!!..take care

indianmakeupways said...

hey thanks for takin time out to comment.. i have used milk of magnesia but it dried my face out like crazy and developed flakes. So now i stay away from those things.i use murad mattifying moisturiser and some times i use vichy pro matt. those products r good and i will be reviewing them soon. hope to see you more in my blog. byeeeeee

ya I heard about that brand. but it's not available in chennai :(. i've been looking for this oil too. aroma magic has it, but the stock that's available in chennai is really old. plus its about 600 - 800 bucks!!!

indianmakeupways said...

which brand are u talkin abt? murad or vichy? vichy if u want u can order it from vichy indian website or buy it from store where its available. but murad u gotta order it online. hey don't spend too much money over this oil. its not supposed to cost tat much. this oil shud be easily available in a medical store

Poohkie said...

no the DR.URJITA JAIN one. I've heard a lot of people talk about it, but I think its available only in maharashtra. I believe the brand also sells essential oils for a very reasonable amount.

medical store? why didn't i think of that?! will definitely try there.

also I had no idea it was supposed to be cheap. I assumed these all will be exp coz maybe they're not produced in india.

indianmakeupways said...

ya i think they do sell a lot more essential oils...i remember seeing tulsi oil.hey lotsa brands do hav jojoba oil and i came across this particular brand by sheer accident and i am really glad tat i did....coz am still using it and it definitely is giving my skin a glow even with no makeup

Hey.. Hi... I came across your blog thru google search for jojoba oil ... Can you please tell me a good brand of jojoba oil for hair ...Also if you know from whr to buy it in Mumbai.. Cos i've read a lot about jojoba oil along with rosemary oil being excellent for hair esp. one with oily scalp.. Would be glad if you help...

indianmakeupways said...

@mamta:-welcome to my blog and thanks for the comment.i am sorry, but i have not used jojoba oil for my hair and i don't know about a good brand in here.but my fellow bloggers have often commented that its easily available in supermarkets in mumbai.i have not personally looked for them yet.also do try the medical shops in mumbai as i bought my small bottle from there.am sorry that I couldn't be of any help in giving you the name of a good brand.

Mamta said...

Hey Thanx a ton for your advice !! Really appreciate your prompt response .. Ok i shall try looking for it at supermarkets and chemists.. But my only worry is that i don't know that the oil that i'll get will be organic/pure or not .. Nonetheless, i'll give it a try! Thanks again! Also this is a recommendation i got from eye specialist that a ointment called "Prorac" is very good and effective for dark circles, thought to share it with you as may help the fellow bloggers. :)

indianmakeupways said...

@mamta:-glad to be of help :)I dont know about prorac, but thanks for the info! will check it out!

Hi,my name is Milind ,am from Mumbai ,I wantto purchase jojoba oil ,enquired in so many chenists shop ,but it is not availbale..Pls give me the chemist shop address from Mumbai from where I can purchase it ..Please help...

indianmakeupways said...

@milind:-hi milind, thanks for the comment. i purchased this oil (this particular brand ) from a chemist shop in colaba market. i dont exactly remember the name of the shop. but u r rt, its hard to find this coz when i asked for this oil, one person from the shop said he has no idea and there was one another guy nearby, who thankfully had some idea abt wat i was asking for and took this bottle out for me. if they say its not available, ask them for the "essential oils" availability. mostly, this product will be kept in that rack(atleast in my case it was like that). so, happy hunting.:)
