After trying and loving their Tea Tree Shampoo, I’ve decided to collaborate with Maple Holistics again.

The product they sent me that I’m going to talk about is the Jojoba Essential Oil. Costing $8.97 USD for a two-ounce bottle, the Jojoba Essential Oil is a hundred-percent all natural and pure jojoba oil. This is perfect for oily and acne-prone skin types as it removes dirt from pores and helps control sebum levels, while also softening skin. 

It can be used as a cleanser, makeup remover, or in conjunction with a skin treatment such as derma-rolling, but I personally use it as a moisturizer. I’ve been wanting to try jojoba oil for some time now because not only do I have oily, acne-prone skin, it’s also incredibly sensitive as well. I can’t use most skincare products that are widely available — it must be natural and/or organic. In addition to that, I have a hard time finding any moisturizers and skin oils that don’t cause breakouts nor sit on my skin.


Skin results of Jojoba Essential Oil after using for two weeks. 

 After using it for several weeks, I can say that I love it. Out of all the moisturizers and oils I’ve used, this is one of two that I had not experienced an adverse reaction to and worked well with my skin. I love that it absorbs quickly — a lot of moisturizing products I’ve used don’t seem to absorb completely or take an insanely long time. I’d apply them before I go to sleep and wake up with a face still covered in whatever I used. But my skin will suck up the Jojoba Essential Oil before my head hits the pillow, waking up in the morning to soft, supple skin. Since starting it, I’ve seen an overall improvement in my skin - not just my acne. 


I take little-to-no bare-face pictures because on top of what I’ve already mentioned, I have enlarged pores, blackheads, redness, scarring, and blue-undertones from black facial hair (not cute). My skin may not seem that bad in these pictures, but they're more noticeable face-to-face and my imperfections tend to be magnified due to how pale I am. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a picture of what my bare skin looked like right before using the Jojoba Essential Oil. However, I did include some unedited pictures of me (in makeup with different levels of coverage) where you can still see my skin flaws, even with makeup on.

And this is what my skin looks like now. I do have some freckles and scarring, but there is a visible decrease in skin texture and my pores do look significantly smaller - you’d have to get up-close and personal for them to plainly see them and are nonexistent at my typical photo-taking distance. Before, if I were just talking with someone face-to-face, they could make out the individual pores.
