The Jojoba Company Absolute Serum is a big departure from my typical skincare recommendations. When I first put this on my face I was totally taken aback by the fragrance of it. The fragrance needs to be addressed first for me since I normally avoid scents other than citrus on my face so this is really an anomaly for me. What I notice is a more masculine scent, it’s more herbal and outdoorsy than I use. BUT, and this is important to note, it dissipates in a minute or two and then I notice nothing. (press sample)
I’ve reviewed other Jojoba Company products because I believe in the company. It’s cruelty free and uses nothing artificial in their ingredients. Actually the name of this is 100% Natural Absolute Serum.
Here’s what they have to share about the benefits of Absolute Serum:
Benefits: Absolute Serum helps reduce the visible signs of lines and wrinkles and firm up the appearance of slackened skin naturally. The di-peptide carnosine in conjunction with hyaluronic acid and silymarin, a potent antioxidant from milk thistle, work together to aid collagen production and refine skin smoothness and expression lines. Skin is relaxed, less lined, intensely re-plumped and visibly smoothed. It combines Australian Kakadu plum and lillypilly, high in vitamin C and deeply nourishing.
Now what do I notice? First I use serums daily and often layer them. I think serums have contributed greatly to the elasticity and condition of my skin. As one of the older bloggers around I don’t want my attitude nor my face to give that away. Jojoba Company products have helped keep at least my face looking younger than my birth certificate shows.
Absolute Serum isn’t sticky on my skin. Since it’s such a powerful anti-oxidant serum you don’t need a lot so the bottle will last for you. I apply this at night prior to moisturizer. During the day I’ll use it first and then apply a Vitamin C serum over it, let those dry and continue with sunscreen and moisturizer. It doesn’t interfere with makeup. If a product balls up under foundation that means it’s not good for my daytime routine. I can use Absolute Serum day or night. I’m not sure if my skin is less lined but it definitely feels smooth. Most importantly, I believe that this pure product is doing something wonderful for my skin. And seeing is believing. — Marcia
