Eden's Semilla 100% Pure Organic Jojoba Oil ~ Review

With Fall in full swing and Winter on its way, my skincare needs have changed. I have combination skin that leans toward oily in the summer and dry the rest of the year. If I'm not careful to keep hydrated (both inside and out) my face becomes too dry and tends to break out.  It can be hard to find that perfect balance as anyone who has combination skin will tell you. If you don't moisturize, your skin produces excess sebum. If you overdue it with heavy creams, your skin can break out.

For years I was afraid of oils. In my mind, I felt that they would exaggerate the oily side of my combo skin and I was terrified that they would break me out. I was wrong. So wrong. After incorporating beauty oils into my routine I've managed to keep my skin looking great, and mostly blemish free.

The latest beauty oil that has found its way into my repertoire is Eden's Semilla's 100% Pure Organic Jojoba Oil. This particular brand of jojoba oil is 100% pure, organic and cold-pressed to ensure that the natural ingredients are retained.

The oil has a yellow hue to it and it has a very light, almost nutty scent which doesn't linger on my face or body. It comes contained in a box, in a plastic bottle that has a stopper to prevent it from leaking during shipping. There is also a dropper included which makes application mess free.

Eden's Semilla 100% Pure Organic Jojoba oil can be used on skin (face and body), hair and as a nail/cuticle treatment. I have been using it on my face, body and hands and am quite pleased with it so far. I apply it nightly as the final step in my facial skincare routine and on my body after showering. It absorbs far quicker than a lot of other brands of jojoba oil I've tried in the past and it doesn't leave a greasy feeling.

When I wake up in the morning my skin looks amazing! It feels hydrated, looks radiant and there's no greasy or oily feeling at all. The few dry patches I had have cleared up and my skin is much more balanced. I've also used it during the day and thanks to the sebum mimicking effect, my skin doesn't produce nearly as much oil in my t-zone as it normally does. Amazing!

When I use it after my shower my skin stays hydrated for the entire day, without feeling greasy. I haven't tried it on my hair because, in all honesty, it's way too fine for oils. They just end up weighing it down. I'm sure that it would work wonders on curly, dry or over-processed hair though.

You can find Eden's Semilla 100% Pure Organic Jojoba Oil on Amazon.  It comes in a 60ml size for $10.95 or in a 120ml size for $18.95.
