I got the grape seed oil to use on my skin because I get a lot of dry patches, especially in the rougher seasons. There are other alternative uses like for cooking, but I focus on the skin care. It helps on contact but sustainability is a little more lax than I hoped.

It's nice that it's odorless so you're not worried about smelling or being too fragrant like a lot of mainstream products. It's not heavy either so it doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy. My mother suggested trying to mix it with other products to see if that helped trap the moisture in my skin longer. I wasn't ready to give up the grape seed oil altogether because it did work. I found that using the grape seed oil mixed with jojoba oil was the best for me (Jojoba Oil for Hair and Skin - 100 Percent Pure Cold Pressed Oil - No Fillers, Dyes or Artificial Ingredients of Any Kind - Made in the USA (3 bottles - 4 oz each)). Combining the two left me smoother longer and my skin wasn't clogged or anything. Great find and I'm happy I took others' advice to figure it out.

As a note to anyone buying this product - I emailed NOW to ask about how the product is processed and received the following reply: "The grapeseed oil is extracted with hexane, the hexane is removed from the final product." After researching hexane extraction, there may still be very slight traces of hexane still in this product or other hexane processed products. Just a note to those looking to buy since this information was not included anywhere on the label.

I chopped off over 22" of relaxed hair over a year ago and now wear my hair in its natural state. I've made learning about natural hair care and hair products one of my hobbies and after some research I found that grape seed oil is amazing for hair - any hair! Here are just a few reasons why you should think about incorporating it into your hair regimen:

- Grapeseed oil restores the cell membranes of a scalp, strengthens hair roots and reduces brittleness in hair, thus grapeseed oil treats hair loss.
- Grapeseed oil eliminates hair loss through lowering the level of hormone dihydrotestosterone.
- Grapeseed oil is good for hair cuticles which get smooth and sealed; the oil prevents the splitting of hair-ends.
- Grapeseed oil retains the natural moisture and softness of hair.
- Grapeseed oil gives a fine sheen to hair.
- Regularly usage of grapeseed oil for hair solves the problem of dandruff.
- Grapeseed oil can be used as a heat protector for damaged hair.

The reason for all these benefits is the rich composition of the oil. It's main features are high amount of Omega-6 (linoleic) fatty acid, of strong antioxidants (procyanidolic oligomers) and of Vitamin E. These constituents have significant regenerative, moisturizing and nourishing properties. I advise you to buy the biggest size because once you start seeing the benefits, you'll use it for everything!

It is a very light oil . If your skin is sensitive like me then you will thank it . You can use it alone or with different essential oil as a carrier oil and it will work great . My skin combination which is sensitive and acne prone but after using this it has become more hydrated and definitely happy !!

I use grapeseed oil as a hot oil treatment for my hair, and as a moisturizer for my skin. I purchase two of these bottles and loved the results so much I shared half of the bottle with my cousin. I will most definitely repurchase this oil.

Nice and light, absorbs quickly with no greasy residue. I use it in the products I make that are more geared towards anti-aging (or acne prone) as its astringent properties are good for tightening and toning skin.

This stuff is wonderful, and a great price! I use it with essential oils as a massage/body oil and I also use it when making my own body cream. It feels wonderful on the skin!

I am amazed by this oil. I have read so much about the benefits of Grape Seed Oil for skin, and decided to make a purchase on the same.
Here are some of the things I noticed
- the oil is very light, so can be applied in face/body, even for people with oily skin( my skin is oily, and no breakouts using the oil) It makes the skin very soft and give a fresh look on continuous usage
- I combine it in my body creams to make it more moisturizing
- It improved my hair texture( I applied the oil before bath, and later removed it using a mild shampoo)
- best thing, the oil is always in liquid form no matter how low the temperature is ( People who experience winter in below 0 temperature, would certainly appreciate this fact)
- the oil is lightly scented, so goes well, when mixed with any fragrance- making a perfect body lotion

Overall, I am very happy with my purchase.

I have very, very sensitive skin, so when I first heard that grapeseed oil is a wonderful moisturizer for the skin and hair, I researched the heck out of it. I went to multiple sites and read countless reviews, and of those, only a very small percentage had any kind of a negative reaction, so I decided to go ahead and give it a try.

The good: It really is a great moisturizer for the hair. Unlike some other oils - like coconut, for example - which are also great yet difficult to wash out, grapeseed oil delivers moisture to the scalp and hair, and is pretty easy to remove with a normal shampooing. Afterward, I found my hair to be softer, more manageable, and not as dry.

Now, as for the not so good section of this review: when I first tried it on my face - which was experiencing a lot of dryness at that time - I used it sparingly. It wasn't heavy or greasy, and it seemed to sink into the skin very quickly. My face became a little softer and a little bit less dry, and for a day or two, everything seemed fine. After that, though, things went downhill in a hurry.

It may be said that this won't clog pores, but on me? It clogged my pores. Moreover, while I didn't break out in giant pimples or anything like cystic acne, I did get many small pimples on, well, pretty much everywhere I had applied a little of the oil. I didn't want to give up and admit defeat so quickly since so many others had raved about this oil, so I chalked it up to my skin having to get used to it, and kept using a small amount once a day for a few more days. That....was a mistake; not only did my breakouts not heal, I got more of them.

Needless to say, after that point, I stopped using the grapeseed oil, and slowly but surely, my face cleared up.

From that point on, I've used it periodically as a hair treatment (making sure that none of it gets on my face during application or while I'm rinsing it out), and continue to get good results from that. So, all of those who don't have sensitive skin are liable to truly love the benefits of this oil on their skin and hair. For those like me who tend to break out thanks to such irritants as air and tap water, I'd urge you to use caution when giving this a try.

Visit http://www.reddit.com/r/skincareaddiction and you'll see The praises of the "oil cleanse method". I love to use this as a moisturizer, and with help of a good AHA and BHA, I have noticed an incredible improvement in my acne. Now instead of constantly finding new pimples, I only have the occasional hormonal breakout. Awesome purchase and has many uses. You won't regret it.
