Aura Cacia Natural Skin Care Oil Apricot Kernel -- 4 fl oz
I have tried a few different carrier oils and the texture is ok but the bottle stinks. You get way too much out at one time and it disappears really quick. Prefer sweet almond oil or grapeseed oil.

Will Not Re-Order
I bought this oil to add to my growing list of hair oils, but unfortunately I won't be re-purchasing. My hair did not absorb this oil at all, and it just sat on my hair making it greasy. It's slightly thick so I will just be using it on my body on its own or in my shea butter mix.

I just prefer jojoba
I decided to try apricot kernel oil for my facial oil on a whim; it's a little cheaper, so why not? Personally, it takes too long to absorb for me to want to deal with it. Jojoba sinks right in, but I find that apricot kernel just sits on my face for longer. I saw another reviewer compare it to jojoba, but the texture reminds me more of sweet almond, as they're both on the thicker side. I don't think it was any different than jojoba in actual moisturizing either. Additionally, I don't like the dispenser. The idea is good, but I get too much oil with one squirt, at least for my face.
If you don't mind hanging out while it sinks in, it's a good deal. Also good for just taking off eye makeup, but any oil will do for that.

Cheap alternative for Jojoba oil
I started using apricot oil as an alternative to jojoba oil, after reading they're similar. I've found that to be true. I think apricot kernel oil is slightly cheaper, so I would definitely recommend it. Also, the bottle that this apricot kernel oil comes in is AWESOME. It is squeezed out, instead of poured out, which gives me much more control.
