The Jojoba Company uses Australian-farmed jojoba seeds to create locally made skin care products which they share with the world and I was given the chance to try out their 100% Natural Jojoba + Rosehip Oil.
The product immediately peaked my interest thanks to both of the key ingredients being two of the hottest oils in the skincare industry at the moment. The jojoba bean is loved across the world because it is the only plant on earth known to produce a liquid wax that is very similar to our skin’s sebum and puts back what age takes away from our skin. While rosehip oils are rich in omega 3 & 9, vitamins and antioxidants, and is also thought to have anti-ageing properties.
I really enjoyed using this as a facial oil because it didn’t feel too greasy on my skin and didn’t really make my face produce more sebum than usual. I initially started with four drops of oil instead of the suggested two to three drops because I wanted to try and use the oil on its own, but when I did that I noticed my skin was rather oily at the end of each day. So I took it down to three drops and applied my moisturiser afterwards as is suggested by the company.
By keeping the oil in my bathroom, I could immediately put it onto my freshly washed face and I think this helped the oil to sink in more effectively. It also meant that my skin was fresh and ready for the moisturiser within minutes. For about a week, I tried to use the oil after applying a toner and found that it worked well enough but I preferred to apply the oil directly onto clean skin because it seemed to be more effective.
After around two weeks, my skin started to have a healthier glow and it definitely feels softer and looks more nourished. As someone who often works night shifts, I was pleasantly surprised to see that my skin didn’t look as lifeless after a spell of late shifts like it usually does.
The Jojoba Company claim that the facial oil is great for scars and stretch marks and I did notice that some of my spot scars have begun to fade a little bit.
The Jojoba Company 100% Natural Jojoba + Rosehip Oil is priced at £16.95.
