Review ♡ The Jojoba Company Skincare
I apologise for my massive blogging hiatus over the Christmas season, but I am back today - and hopefully I'll be able to get into some sort of blogging schedule.
Today's post is a review on two products from The Jojoba Company. They are the 100% Natural Australian Jojoba, and the Hydrating Day Cream. Ever since hearing Shannon from Shaaanxo raving about The Jojoba Company, I've wanted to test out their skincare range. After trying out these two products, I now understand what all the fuss is about!
Before I get into the individual products, I just wanted to talk a bit about the brand in general. The Jojoba Company is a natural brand, which focuses on creating skincare based on pure golden jojoba. Their skin care products are free from mineral oils, parabens, artificial fragrances and colours, and contain no animal derivatives. They are also gluten and dairy free, and suitable for vegans.
Each product is packaged in a frosted glass bottle, with a pump on the top. The packaging feels luxurious and looks gorgeous sitting on top of your vanity, and the pump makes it so easy to dispense the right amount of product.
The Jojoba Company 100% Natural Jojoba* is as the name may suggest, pure jojoba oil. This stuff is absolutely fantastic. I apply this under my moisturiser at night whenever my skin is feeling dry and dull, and use it as a makeup remover for long wearing lip products such as the Australis Velourlips or Rimmel Provocalips. This oil breaks down makeup so easily, whilst moisturising the skin at the same time. When I use this all over my face, I wake up in the morning with supple, hydrated and glowing skin. For someone who has dry to normal skin like me, and often suffers from dry patches, this is a miracle product! I own the 85ml size, which retails for $29.95 AUD.
The Jojoba Company Hydrating Day Cream* is a lovely, lightweight daytime moisturiser. This moisturiser is packed full of wonderful ingredients such as green tea and olive leaf extracts, Siberian ginseng, natural silk peptides, pomegranate, beta glucan, and of course, jojoba oil. I may only recognise a handful of these ingredients, but I can tell that they all work together wonderfully to create a light, yet potent moisturiser. This provides the perfect amount of hydration, without feeling greasy and causing your makeup to slide off your face! It does not include any SPF though, so when using this you must remember to add sun protection. I have the 85ml size, which retails for $52.95 AUD.
