The Jojoba Company – Jojoba Bead Facial Cleanser and Natural Pigment Oil

The Jojoba Company Natural Pigmentation Oil and Jojoba Bead Facial Cleanser

What is Jojoba oil (pronounced ho-HO-ba)? According to The Jojoba Company jojoba is a desert plant that produces a small bead. ” It produces a rich, pure golden liquid wax (it is often called jojoba ‘oil’).  But unlike oils this unique liquid wax acts like our skin’s own natural oils, absorbing deep below the skins surface. “It is the only plant on earth known to produce a wax similar to that found in young, healthy human skin”

The Jojoba Company has its own farm in Australia so that they can control how the plant is grown, this way they can avoid chemicals and preservatives. The father/daughter team who created the brand have found ways to incorporate the plant and oil into an entire skincare line.

I’ve used The Jojoba Co’s Pure Jojoba Oil (review) for over 6 months to help keep my skin and hair looking their best. When the company offered me their Natural Pigmentation Oil to even skin tone and reduce the appearance of pigmentation, you know I was thrilled. They later sent their Jojoba Bead Facial Cleanser to make life even better!

Jojoba Bead Facial Cleanser is a very gentle cleanser that’s infused with tiny jojoba beads. This is a cleanser/exfoliator that I can use on a daily basis if I want since it’s so gentle. If you love a very scrubby cleanser this might not be strong enough for you, but it’s perfect for me. I like to use an exfoliating cleanser but I can’t overdo it so this very lightly scented product is a perfect addition to my regime.

“We have used 100% natural solidified jojoba beads that are completely safe and eco-friendly—no plastic particles here. The beads gently exfoliate while hydrating Vitamin C, quandong, aloe vera and Vitamin E dissolve impurities. Use daily as a 2-in-1 cleanser and exfoliator for glowing smooth skin. Suitable for all skin types.”

I love the ingredients used in this and I feel comfortable knowing that this calming cleanser has great natural ones. The jojoba beads won’t hurt the environment so it’s good for everyone.

Jojoba Company Natural Pigmentation Oil

Jojoba Company Natural Pigmentation Oil

The Jojoba Company Natural Pigmentation Oil is meant to target sunspots, age spots, and uneven skintone. There’s a pleasant light citrus fragrance to this. I use it at night since it’s an oil and my foundation has occasionally balled up under it if I’m rushing and not letting it meld into my skin. It’s so moisturizing that at night I don’t need to use another moisturizer if I don’t want.

The packaging is just the best. The top of all Jojoba Company boxes is so great you almost want to store it in the box but this copper colored bottle is beautiful on its own and looks pretty on my vanity.

PurErb Essential Oils for skincare sensation

PurErb Skincare

When your first glimpse of a website looks like this, you know you are in for a unique experience. PurErb Skincare is a brand based on herbology-based care and aromatherapy. They embrace the power of nature with something called NLE (natural liposome encapsulation) that intensifies the ingredients.

Pur Erb Serenity Calming Facial Oil and Vitality Deep Cleansing Oil

PurErb Serenity Calming Facial Oil and Vitality Deep Cleansing Oil

We were sent two products to learn about this newer line that are perfect examples of what PurErb™ is all about.

VITALITY DEEP CLEANSING OIL

The Vitality Deep Cleansing Oil is a clear rinse off cleanser that uses 15 exotic botanical ingredients in its formula. This cleanser absorbs into your skin quickly which helps moisturize and soften it. Start with a dry face, then put a drop onto your fingertips and rub them together. Massage this onto your your dampened face and neck to activate the oil. When you are done just pat it dry to leave your skin radiant, smooth and beautifully refreshed.

Pur Erb Vitality Deep Cleansing Oil

Pur Erb Vitality Deep Cleansing Oil

It contains ingredients like Abyssinian, Moringa, Geranium, Kukui, Frankincense, and Sacha Inchi oils to provide Mother Nature’s answer to calming your skin.

  • Dissolves and washes away surface impurities
  • Helps prevent dehydration and excess sebum
  • Leaves skin refreshed, smooth, and radiant

I love the smell of this and I’m normally extremely sensitive to any fragrance, I mostly smell citrus. It’s not too sweet or too tart, it’s in between and I love it. What is terrific about this is that they sell a 1 oz size (the one I have) for only $9 so you can try out a nice size bottle before investing in the 6 oz. $32 size.

SERENITY CALMING FACIAL OIL

Serenity Calming Facial Oil isn’t a cleansing oil so it’s used differently and has a much stronger aromatherapy fragrance to it. This is considered to be a Meridian Oil which are used often in spa treatments. According to PurErb these oils resonate more deeply than individual essential oils and are better for transporting your senses and enhancing well being.

Pur Erb Serenity Calming Facial Oil

PurErb Serenity Calming Facial Oil

This too has oils that are multi-layered and include Baobab, Marula, Bulgarian Rose, Helichrysum, Sandalwood, and Lavender.

With Serenity you first do a precleanse and tone your skin. Dispense a small amount onto your fingertips and rub them together. Then massage this onto your face and neck. You won’t be washing this off. This is the oil you’d use either alone or under a moisturizer. Here are the benefits:

  • Absorbs quickly to moisturize and soften
  • Nourishes and calms stressed skin
  • Ethereal floral notes promote relaxation
  • Helps soothe mental and emotional distress

A full size 1 oz bottle (the size of mine) is 1 oz and sells for $75 while a .3 oz is $28. These contain more expensive ingredients thus the price difference. While both of these oils come in darkened glass bottles to keep the ingredients away from light, Serenity’s bottle is also frosted protecting it even more.

Information about some of the essential oils in PurErb Skincare

KUKUI: The Kukui tree was originally valued for its oil used in torches and lamps, from which its alternate name “Candlenut Tree” was derived. The dark nuts, white flowers, and downy leaves of the tree adorn traditional Hawaiian leis and symbolize enlightenment peace, and protection. The rich, silky oil contains essential fatty acids, antioxidants, and vitamins that soothe dry, stressed skin, deeply moisturize, relieve skin irritation, and promote healing.

SANDALWOOD: Prized across the globe for thousands of years, the Queen of Sheba offered sandalwood as a gift to honor King Solomon. Inhaling this scent helped Buddhists maintain alertness during meditation, and prompted Australian Aborigines to focus before the walkabout rite of passage. The slow-growing wood provides a luxurious oil that fades scars, tones, and rejuvenates the skin, while the elegant fragrance creates a sense of clarity, composure, and tranquility.

BAOBOB:  Known as the “upside down tree” of legend, the baobab overflowed with energy and walked across the African plains. Mother Earth decided to plant the baobab upside down to make sure it stayed in one place, and ever since, its root-like branches reach up to the sky. Baobab oil provides a superior source of essential fatty acids and antioxidants, promoting softer, smoother, and more toned skin. Vitamins A, D, and E deeply moisturize and nourish dull, dry, and aging skin while encouraging the regeneration of skin cells.

FRANKINSCENCE:  This fragrant resin has been revered by royalty for thousands of years, valued even more than gold. Unguent vases discovered in King Tutankhamun’s tomb contained frankincense, as further testimony of the ancient Egyptian obsession with eternal youth. Known for its healing powers, this anti-aging secret conditions, tones, and rejuvenates irritated, environmentally-damaged skin. The aroma is reminiscent of pine, honey, and lemon, and provides a sense of calm and serenity.

MORINGA:  Ancient Egyptian tombs often contained vessels filled with Moringa oil for use during the afterlife. Today, this deeply penetrating aromatic oil is still valued for its superior antioxidant and moisturizing powers for ageless-looking skin. With a superior oleic acid content of 72%, Moringa oil is deeply absorbed, delivering vital nutrients and restoring moisture to the skin.

Are your retinol products working up to their potential? Boost them with Retinol Anti-Aging Facial Oil

L de L Retinol Anti Aging Facial OilRetinol is one of the wonder ingredients in the skin care world. With all the great things it can do, it pays to ensure it can reach its potential. I was sent the Retinol Anti-Aging Facial Oil to try and I put it to work hoping it would boost my retinol products into overdrive.

Retinol products does much for skin – it treats acne, hyperpigmentation, and wrinkles. It even reduces the size of your pores. While some people don’t tolerate retinol well, my skin loves it. Retinol actually stimulates collagen production, so the results over time are fantastic.

Skincare L de L Cosmetics® Retinol Anti-Aging Facial Oil (SRP $26.00 – 1 Fl. Oz. / 30 mL) was launched last June and it’s a very interesting product. It’s a facial oil that preps skin for retinol treatments. I love facial oils, which sound like they would be greasy and pore-clogging but are in fact great moisturizers. Retinol Anti-Aging Facial Oil is a very light oil with African Marula Oil and Sea Buckhorn’s Omega 7 & 9 Fatty Acids. It moisturizes skin and delivers nutrients that fight wrinkles and increase elasticity. The ingredients include nine rich essential oils plus Vitamins A, C and Argan Oil (Vitamin E). There is a lot of antioxidant power in this oil.

Properly prepped skin helps treatment serums do their job even more effectively and the Retinol Anti-Aging Facial Oil is made to prepare skin for retinol treatments. While the Skincare L de L Cosmetics® line is a retinol-based anti-aging skin care line, I like how the facial oil is recommended for use before any retinol treatment. You can also mix a few drops of this oil into your moisturizer or foundation for a little extra luminosity.

Retinol Anti-Aging Facial Oil is available at ULTA Beauty stores, Harmon Face Values at select Bed Bath Beyond stores, as well as online at www.retinoltreatment.com.  – Lisa

Monat Rejuvineqe Oil Intensive paves the way to beautiful hair and skin #rejuveniqe

Monat Rejuveniqe

Monat Rejuveniqe

*sample provided by iFabbo*

The best discovery I’ve made since I’ve been blogging is using oils for skin and hair. I honestly never thought I’d say that or think that. I always thought of oils as … well oily! If your hair or skin has oils how would it help to add more oil? But new technology has changed that and now the benefits of the types of oils available to us are amazing.

MONAT REJUVENIQE OIL INTENSIVE contains the best oils from around the world. It’s a combination of 11 different ingredients like vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, beta-carotene, omega-6 fatty acids, nutrients and amino acids;  all  beneficial for skin and hair.

Here is a list from Monat’s site to show what is in the product and why:

Abyssinian: The Key ingredient in Rejuveniqe Oil Intensive. From the crambe abyssinica plant native to central Africa, it’s a rare and unique combination of fatty acids prized for their ability to do everything from mimic the effects of silicon for unbeatable shine; lubricate the hair deep into the follicle; and protect and coat each strand.

Baobab: The renowned baobab trees have grown for centuries in the arid climates of India and Africa, and its exotic oil from the tree’s seeds are rich in antioxidant-rich palmitic acid and Vitamin F.

Buriti: The fruit of Africa’s Moriche palm – known as the Tree of Life – is one of the world’s richest sources of beta-carotene, which moisturizes and nourishes.

Camelia: Also known as tea-seed oil, it’s ultra-hydrating oil responsibly harvested from China that cleans the scalp and pampered dry stands thanks to its abundance of Vitamin E and polyphenols.

Carrot Seed: Specially sourced from the mountains of Switzerland, it’s rich in Vitamin A to condition the scalp, plus Alpha Linolenic Acid for anti-inflammatory protection.

Monoi: Selectively sourced from the warm tropics of Tahiti, it’s a restorative oil rich in Omega 3 and fatty acids to heal damage and promote growth from the root.

Meadowfoam: This oil is sourced right from the Pacific Northwest of the USA. Named for its flowers’ resemblance to white foam on the ocean, meadowfoam oil is another outstanding source of Omega 9 fatty acids for shine and sheen.

Moringa: Ancient Egyptians prized Moringa Oil for its nourishing properties, thanks to antioxidants and Vitamin E, which help combat skin fatigue, plus clean and purify the scalp.

Rejuvineqe Oil

Now that you know the essentials, let’s talk about this magnificent product. There are many ways you can use this oil. You can use it as a prewash hair treatment. Put it in your hair prior to washing and leave it in for a minute or so before you step in the shower. Another way is to use it as a styling treatment on your wet hair to help smooth and protect before you use your blowdryer. You can also use it on your dry hair to smooth and protect. It’s great for the ends of your hair if you use a small amount.

Rejuvineqe

Rejuvineqe Oil Intensive by Monat isn’t just meant for hair; it’s also a treat for face and nails. It’s an intensive oil so a little drop will do you.

Rejuvineqe Oil Intensive top

I love the packaging of it. It’s sealed well so air can’t get through to it. Unscrew the top, press the button and the vial fills with the oil. Then press the button again to get out the amount you want. A bonus for me is the wonderful citrus fragrance. Plus it’s a cruelty free brand that uses no parabens, salt, sulfates, artificial color, PEG or chemical fragrance. If you use a keratin product to straighten your hair then you really need to appreciate that it doesn’t use salt or sulfates.

This is an expensive treat at $99 but a little goes a long way. I’m careful to use every drop of it so I rub it into my hands after I use it on my hair. This elegant oil is one to put on your list of items you need in your life. — Marcia

Lily Farm Fresh Skin Care: Seven Facial Rejuvenating Oil Treatment

My fascination with Lily Farm Fresh Skin Care began when I read that they are the only skin care company on Earth that actually grows their own ingredients on their own USDA certified organic farm. Pretty impressive! The ‘Lily’ of Lily Farm Fresh Skin Care is a 7th generation grower – her ancestors were growers before the American Revolution. Now this is organic farming at its best!

That’s seven truly excellent reasons to add this facial oil to your skin care routine! I find that it is a fabulous facial moisturizer for dry, mature skin, just massage in a small amount every morning and night. It’s also great for rubbing on the temples to alleviate a headache, and it is a terrific massage oil. It can also be used to ease the pain of sunburn and heal the skin, and it is a wonderful hot oil hair treatment too!

Algenist Advanced Anti-Aging Repairing Oil

Algenist, one of our favorite skin care lines, launched a great product last fall that combines the performance of a serum with the experience of a facial oil. The name of this cool new product is Advanced Anti-Aging Repairing Oil ($79, Algenist.com, Sephora.com).

I am a huge fan of facial serums in general and I also love facial oils so I couldn’t wait to try this when Algenist sent it to the BIZ. One of the key ingredients is Microalgae Oil, which had great results in clinical trials with a 42% increase in cell repair and regeneration and a 31% decrease in DNA damage.

The ingredients also include some terrific antioxidants as well as effective emollients that make skin smooth and hydrated. It improves skin texture, reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles, and brightens the complexion.

I absolutely love the packaging.  The see through strip on the side shows how much product is left, and the dropper makes it easy to get just the right amount of product every time. I think that is definitely important particularly with more expensive skin care.

I used this for three months morning and night. I mixed two drops with my serum and applied after cleansing and before moisturizing. It absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave skin feeling oily or greasy. I loved the results and was sad when I finished the bottle – it’s really nice stuff.

If you are looking for a treatment product that gets results like a serum but has a light, non-greasy feel, this is one to consider.  – Lisa
