I received The Jojoba Company beauty products in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion.
Skin health is preserved by an oily (waxy) solution called sebum. Did you know, that 25 to 30% of your skin’s sebum is actually made up of wax esters? The main purpose of wax esters is to hold moisture in the skin, which keeps your skin looking and feeling firm.
After we turn 20, our production of wax esters starts to decline and that is when trouble starts…As we lose moisture from our skin cells we start the aging process of the skin.
Why Jojoba is the greatest beauty ally:
Jojoba is the only plant known to produce wax esters found in our skin. There are many reasons why Jojoba is a must-have for anyone wanting healthier looking skin. Jojoba is naturally hypoallergenic and contains powerful antioxidants, Omega 6, 9 fatty acids, and Vitamins A, D and E. When you apply this potent mixture to your skin, the wax esters in Jojoba provide similar nurturing and moisturizing properties as your own sebum. It’s like tricking your skin into thinking Jojoba is part of its own components and absorbs the active ingredients into the deeper layers of your skin. As amazing as it sounds, how good does it work?
I have tried a few different Jojoba products and have always been extremely pleased with the results. I want to share with you 3 great Jojoba-based products that are a must for your holidays this year!
Jojoba Natural Pigmentation Oil:
The Jojoba Natural Pigmentation Oil is very lightweight and contains a compound of Simmondsia Chinensis (jojoba) Seed Oil*, Polyglyceryl-3 Palmitate, Crambe Abyssinica (abyssinian) Seed Oil, Rumex Occidentalis (rumex) Extract, Daucus Carota Root (carrot) Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis Leaf (rosemary) Extract, along with many natural ingredients to help your skin even out and reduce the appearance of pigmentation.
After I had my baby, I had a lot of skin problems and was looking for something that could help. This oil is very easy to apply and is recommended shaking it before using. Apply 1-2 drops onto clean skin and use it in the morning and at night. I am using that amount per area, a total of 10-12 drops to cover my whole face, neck and across my shoulders and chest. I love the fact that I can go to bed without having any oil transferred to my sheets.
Since I started using it, my skin seems to be fresher and my skin tone is more even. I am realistic and know the pregnancy spots are not going to go away that easily, but I really like what this product is doing for me so far!
The Jojoba Natural Pigmentation Oil comes in a 30 ml / 1.0 fl and comes with a dropper for better control. I calculate that it should last at least 2-3 months and has a retail price of $39.95.
Hydrating Day Cream:
Lightweight and quickly absorbed, this high-performance active moisturizer is perfect for wearing under make-up. The cream contains ingredients like pomegranate, green tea, beta glucan and olive leaf that are known to be antioxidants and offers moisturizing properties.
This is another great addition to my beauty routine especially now that weather is changing and it is really windy around here!
You can use the cream after cleaning your skin and can be used twice daily or as often as needed when a little extra help is needed for dry / patchy skin.
The Hydrating Day Cream comes is 50ml/ 1.7 fl. oz or 85ml/ 2.8 fl. oz and has a retail price of $32.95 to $52.95.

100% Natural Ultimate Jojoba Youth Potion:
This is a 100 % natural Australian jojoba is rich in vitamin A, D, E and antioxidants/ The potion is lightweight and easily absorbed by the skin. It will give you an immediate glow and healthy look. The Ultimate Jojoba Youth Potion provides you with great moisturizers and your skin feels very hydrated.
It does not contain any mineral oils, paraffins, or artificial fragrances, it smooths the appearance of wrinkles to visibly enhance skin texture and minimize the look of expression lines…I love it!
As a matter of fact, I used their 100 % Natural Australian Jojoba and fell in love with it. So I was really looking forward to trying their 100% Natural Ultimate Jojoba Youth Potion and I am so happy to say it exceeded my expectations!
100% Natural Ultimate Jojoba Youth Potion is infused with potent antioxidants including CoQ10 and vitamin E. It protects your skin against free radical damage which is a major cause of the appearance of aging skin. It should be used in the morning and at night and they recommend using it with a cream for even better results.
It’s available in 50ml/ 1.7 fl. oz bottle with a pump (use 1-2 pumps ), and has a retail price of $39.95.
Last but not least, is the Lemon and Coconut Hand cream:
Lightweight, lightly scented, non-greasy, revitalizing, and hydrating hand cream contains vitamin E and formulated with cocoa butter along with natural coconut oil and lemon essential oil that instantly re-hydrate dry hands.
This cream which needs to be massaged into the hands and cuticles is like all the other products I tried, and it is lightweight and quickly absorbed!
The Lemon and Coconut Hand cream contains Aqua (Water), Cetearyl Alcohol, Glycerin, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil*, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Ceteareth-20, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Butter, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract.
These ingredients work wonders on dry tired skin! Hands, unfortunately tend to age a lot and we seem to neglect them. Needless to say, it is vital to include your hands in your daily beauty routine!
The Lemon and Coconut Hand cream is available in a 50 ml/1.7fl.oz and has a retail price of $22.95.
This might seem a bit high for a hand cream, but look at this way, it’s a highly moisturizing cream that would help keep your hands looking great and rejuvenated !
