The Jojoba Company- ''Good for you, good for the Earth''
The Jojoba Company is well known for their natural and organic based skincare products containing the key ingredient pure Australian Golden Jojoba. I've used both the Pure Australian Golden Jojoba and Jojoba Absolute Serum and have found that these products are soothing and replenishing to my skin. What I also love about these two products is the fact that they are Australian made from Australian natural plant extracts. To read more about these two products see my blog post here.
The Jojoba Company- ''Skin protection comes naturally with The Jojoba Company’s new Anti-aging Day Cream with SPF15. Specially designed to protect, moisturise and nourish your skin through the warmer months, this 96% natural moisturiser also provides a broad spectrum SPF15 barrier to protect skin against harmful UVA/UVB rays without clogging pores.''
A few weeks ago, I was given the opportunity to trial The Jojoba Company's first ever skincare product containing SPF, Anti-Aging Day Cream SPF15. Anti-aging day cream helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and is enriched with a plethora of natural botanical ingredients. Key ingredients include: Australian Jojoba, natural plant oils and extracts, anti-oxidants, green tea and vitamin E. The concoction of these ingredients formulated within anti-aging day cream ensures the skin is luxuriously moisturised, hydrated and supple. I've been using this Anti-aging day cream after applying Pure Australian Golden Jojoba and Jojoba Absolute Serum to my skin in the morning.
I like the fact that Anti-aging day cream SPF15 creates a skin barrier to protect the skin from UVA/UVB rays and prolong the ageing of skin. Here in Queensland the sun shines high and bright throughout the year to the point where spring doesn't exists, so I always opt for day creams which contain SPF. This day cream contains SPF15, though I would have preferred if the SPF was higher, say SPF30.
Anti-aging day cream comes in a very convenient soft silicon-like squeezable tube which feels like the supple and soft texture of skin we all desire. I really like the material of the packaging as it's slip-free and different! Upon first twisting open the cap, the tube had a foil-seal. This ensures that the cream is fresh once received. The cream has an expiry until 2013 (as it contains SPF), so that's plenty of time for me to use up this product and enjoy the benefits of the ingredients formulated in the cream.
The cream is rich yet lightweight and not thick at all. Despite the relatively thin consistency, I found it difficult to evenly spread this rich cream across my face. Hence, applying the cream using gentle circular motions took a little longer than with other creams to fully penetrate into the skin. The cream felt very hydrating and the scent was very subtle. I'm not a fan of highly scented products, so it's a great thing that this day cream has a subtle scent.
My skin looked relatively shiny after application and I thought that this cream is still in the process of penetrating through my skin. However, after a few minutes my T-zone still looked slightly shiny. I would assume the application of Anti-aging day cream is not entirely suitable with my combination/oily skin type as its purpose does not control oil, which is one of my skin concerns. I enjoy the benefits of vitamin E and natural plant oils/extracts which leaves me skin feeling nourished, hydrated and protected from the sun rays, therefore, it's best for me to only apply this day cream to my cheeks and neck before stepping outdoors.
The Jojoba Company products do not contain parabens, sulphates, mineral oils, petrochemicals, phthalates, harmful chemicals or detergents.
The Jojoba Company Anti-Aging Day Cream SPF 15 was launched recently and costs A$29.95 for a 40 mL tube. For more information please visit The Jojoba Company website here.
***NB: I've just been told that the reason why Anti-aging day cream took a little while to penetrate the skin is that it contains no parabens or anything artificial to help improve the cream to sink in fast. ***Have you experienced any products from The Jojoba Company?
