You know how they say that pregnant women have a glow…well, that was not my case at all and actually my skin got really dry. I got spots and dry spots all over my face so pregnancy was really not very nice to my skin, so I decided I needed an emergency treatment to get my skin a little help and I started using the Skin Refining & Brightening Face Mask from the Jojoba Company.
Before I get into details about the product, let me fill you in with a little information and history about Jojoba and its benefits!
Skin health is preserved by an oily (waxy) solution named sebum; 25-30% of the skin’s sebum is made up of wax esters. The main role of wax esters is to hold moisture in the skin, which keeps your skin looking and feeling firm. When we turn 20, our production of wax esters starts to decline, letting moisture escape from our skin cells. This starts the aging process of skin.
Jojoba is the only plant known to produce wax esters similar to those in our skin. Jojoba is naturally hypoallergenic and contains powerful antioxidants, Omega 6 and 9 fatty acids, and Vitamins A, D and E. When applied to skin, the wax esters in jojoba provide similar nurturing and moisturizing properties as our own sebum. Skin recognizes jojoba as its own and lets it in to deliver active ingredients into the deeper layers of our skin….Sounds amazing doesn’t it, but how good does this work?
As I mentioned before, my skin was in need of some TLC when I started to use the Jojoba Company’s Refining & Brightening Face Mask (See the before photo on this post).
After childbirth, I was left with really dark freckles all over the face; in addition my face looked tired and dry.
I then started using the Refining & Brightening Face Mask daily and was amazed at the results I saw just 10 days since I started using it!
According to the brand their Brightening Face mask is clinically proven to visibly lighten the skin by over 20% within one month of regular use and it is proven to lighten the appearance of age spots by up to 25% within 28 days.
With only 10 days of using the face mask, I can tell my skin is totally hydrated, the skin tone is more even than it has been in a long, long time and I am not talking just pregnancy, but way before that! So I am able to say I am the newest and most loyal fan!
The results have been so good that both my mother and aunt have asked what I am doing for my skin and have already asked for the product website and name to order it!
The Jojoba Company’s Refining & Brightening Face Mask is very easy to use…Cleanse, apply a fine layer, and let it be for 10 minutes. Then wash your face and apply a moisturizer…voila you are done!
As for a moisturizer, I am using the 100% Natural Australian Jojoba, you can read my review here.
I am posting a 10 days ( after ) photo and will update when I have been using the mask for a month .
Jojoba Company’s Refining & Brightening Face Mask has a retail price of $49.95 for a 2.7 fl.oz but you only need a little amount of the product…I am guessing this is enough for about 2-3 months…And This would probably be the best spent $50.00 ever!-
