I usually don’t believe in miracles but I must admit that jojoba oil has some truly impressive beautifying properties.
I was kindly sent a free sample of 100% jojoba oil from The Jojoba Company, an Australian company. This is not a sponsored post.
Jojoba is usually one of the ingredients in beauty and anti-ageing creams. Jojoba contains vitamins A and D. The Jojoba Company decided to enrich the formula by blending other essential oils to create a multi-vitamin for the skin. The formula contains a spectrum of vitamin A, D and E plus Omega 6 and 9 from camellia oil, meadowfoam seed oil, baobab oil, argan oil, linden blossom oil and manuka oil.
Jojoba is cold-pressed to retain all its properties. Its main health and beauty benefits include:
- soothing eczema-prone skin
- uneven skin pigmentation
- stretch marks
- dry hair
Using Jojoba Oil
You can use jojoba oil on your face, hair and body. One drop is enough for the whole face and neck.
I used the oil every day on my face and once a week on my hair. I have long, coloured hair that tends to get quite dry.
The Jojoba Company recommends to use jojoba oil:
- directly on the skin and before applying your moisturiser to lock in the moisture
- mixed with your moisturiser if you prefer a non-greasy texture
- as a hair treatment, massaging it into wet hair for a deep conditioning action
- as a hair protective and sealing treatment before going swimming
- to soften cuticles
- as a body moisturiser, either on its own or before applying a body lotion
My Experience with The Jojoba Company’s Jojoba Oil
I found that my skin looked much smoother. I spent my weekends during the summer in my allotment and have discovered I was developing some fine lines, especially frown lines from working in the sun.
Over the years I have also noticed the appearance of uneven pigmentation and I am afraid to admit I have some scarring due to picking spots (I know, I know, it’s bad habit!).
Applying jojoba oil on my face every day made a visible difference (I have been complimented on my skin) and the moisturising effects are long-lasting so a morning application is enough for the whole day. Sometimes I applied the oil before going to bed for an extra anti-ageing boost.
I believe that my line lines look less prominent and that my skin tone is looking more even, including those areas with scarring. In fact, I seem to notice discolouration on my skin less than before.
