New facial products are always exciting, particularly when trying something from a company that I'm unfamiliar with! I was given the chance to try some products from the Jojoba Company recently, and after putting them through the paces for a few weeks, I'm quite excited to finally tell you all about them!
I was sent the jojoba bead and bamboo facial exfoliant, as well as the skin refining and brightening face mask to try. These two come in matte red 80 ml flip lid tubes, making it really easy to get the product out without making a mess, as these both have quite a thick consistency.
The exfoliant is suitable for all skin types and is meant to also be good for sensitive skin. As someone with really normal skin, aside from a few old scars, I can't vouch for this, but it certainly didn't negatively impact my skin at all.
This is packed to the brim with:
- Australian Jojoba (which is a shrub, for those who are wondering), which contains antioxidants, Vitamins A, D & E
- Shea Butter
- Witch Hazel
- Vitamin E
- Ivory Clay
- Salicyclic acid
- Jojoba Bead
This has a number of different applications. Firstly, you can use it as an exfoliating scrub, as stated in the name. Place a small amount into the palm of your hand, then, using circular motions, apply it to your skin. The scrub has a nice amount of grittiness to it, and it has a lovely and light floral scent. It's not a harsh exfoliant, and my skin certainly feels smoother after using it.
The second use is to apply it on your skin as you would a mask, leaving it for ten to fifteen minutes prior to washing it off. There is a moderate amount of tingling that makes you feel like it's working, and when it's washed off, the skin does feel softer.
This tube retails for $39.95 - a bargain for a two in one! This has slowly and steadily made it's way onto my favourites list for August.
The skin refining and brightening face mask is meant to even skin tone and reduce the appearance of pigmentation. Again, this is for all skin types.
- Australian Jojoba, which contains antioxidant, Vitamins A, D & E
- Daisy Flowers
- Bearberry (how cute is that name?)
- Roasted Coffee Oil
- Vitamin A
- Kakadu Plum
This has a slightly stronger, but similarly sweet scent. You're meant to spread a thick layer of this all over your face, wait for ten minutes, then wash it off. Unlike other clay masks, this doesn't harden and freeze your face. Instead, this gets absorbed into the skin, so what you're left with is an almost too-thick layer of lotion on your face.
While it's meant to fade age spots and freckles, I haven't noticed much difference in my skin, but I do like the way my skin feels after using this. There is a small amount of tingling as it stays on your face, but nothing harsh. This retails for $49.95. This mask would be ideal for those seeking a clay mask that feels reasonably gentle on the skin.
One of the best things about this brand is that they are cruelty free! Not only that, they also don't have parabens, animal derivatives or sulphates in their products, making it good for your soul, as well as your skin.
