This post is a little delayed. Mostly because my skin decided it was time to freak out about a week into trying out this fabulous oil. I was soon greeted by an unwelcome visitor and realized it had little to do with what I may or may not be putting on my face. Now that my skin is back to it’s normal condition, it’s time to share one of the ONLY oils I’ve ever willingly put on my face! The 100% Natural Jojoba + Rosehip Oil moisturizer is a win!
The Jojoba Company recently sent me this sparkling, pink box and inside was their amazing moisturizing oil. I’ve heard so much of using rosehip oil but I just never jumped the gun and made a purchase. The Jojoba Company combined jojoba oil and rosehip oil to give a balanced, super hydrating moisturizer that is light weight, quickly absorbed and leaved my skin feeling amazing!
I first fell in love with the packaging. This dropped topped, metallic pink bottle looks adorable on my vanity and makes it easy to remember to hydrate!
I, personally, have oily skin. So, the idea of an oil as my main moisturizer was a little scary at first. After the first use, I soon discovered that this oil is great for all skin types- even the moist oily!
The real secret is combining both jojoba and rosehip oil. They’re great on their own, but paired together just right, they make an amazing tag team!
Rosehip Oil, is commonly used as a natural moisturiser and on skin conditions such as wrinkles and scarring. However, Rosehip Oil is a plant oil, a triglyceride which is only able to penetrate into the upper layers of skin. Therefore, it is not easily absorbed deep into the skin. As a result, this can clog skin pores leading to breakouts and blackheads.
On the other hand, Jojoba is the only plant in the world known to produce a liquid wax like that found in healthy, young human skin. Hence, when Jojoba is applied to skin it is instantly recognised as its own. Skin opens its pores and the Jojoba penetrates to the deeper layers of the skin carrying whatever is added to it with it.
Pairing the two together, you get a stunning moisturizer that is:
Naturally rich in antioxidants.
Naturally rich in vitamins A, D & E.
Naturally rich in omega fatty acids 3, 6 & 9.
Suitable for all skin types.
Ideal for scarring and stretch marks.
and has a longer shelf life than Rosehip oil alone.
Overall, I love how this left my skin. After just a few days (using this twice a day) I noticed softer, smoother skin as well as more of a natural, glow. I love the way this left my skin but above all, it did not make my oily skin any shinier. If anything, my skin noticed the moisture and produced less oil of it’s own! I absolutely can’t wait to see what’s next from this company!
