The Jojoba Company is a Australian skin/body care brand which uses 100% pure natural Jojoba Oil as the core ingredient in their products to help moisturise and nourish the skin. What I love about this Aussie brand is that their products are completely free from harmful ingredients such as: detergents, chemicals, parabens, artificial fragrances, colours, PEGs, mineral oil and sodium lauryl sulphate. Additionally, The Jojoba Company do not test on animals.
The Jojoba Company recently released the first ever EE cream, a.k.a. Jojoba Bead & Bamboo Facial Exfoliant (A$39.95/80ml), which aims to deeply cleanse, renew and rebalance skin. I was super excited when I was offered the opportunity to trial this face care product, since it could be used as either an exfoliant or a luxurious face mask that you could leave on for 10-15 min for a more intense treatment! My skin is always in need of a pamper, so this EE Cream arrived at a perfect time!
The core ingredients of this wonder EE Cream include Pure Australian Jojoba (provides antioxidants and Vitamins A, D and E), Ivory Clay and Shea Butter to hydrate, Bamboo extract to exfoliate, Witch Hazel to calm and tone, Salicylic Acid (natural Beta Hydroxy Acid) to prevent blemishes and Jojoba Bead to nourish and exfoliate skin. This EE Cream is ideal for both normal and sensitive skin types.
I've been using this EE Cream once every third day (recommended usage is 1-3 times per week) and have been trialling this product as an exfoliant and face mask. As an exfoliant I only end up using a small pearl sized amount and gently massage the cream in circular motions to my forehead, cheeks (inner cheeks and sides of my nose) and chin area. The consistency of the EE Cream is just about right to gently spread across my skin and the Jojoba Beads are well dispersed. The scent of this EE Cream reminds me of oranges and Kaolin clay. In fact, this EE Cream does contain Kaolin as the second core ingredient (after Aqua) and Orange Peel Oil also forms a part of this lovely cream. The cream feels very gentle and I could feel the beads against my skin which work well to buff away dead skin cells to reveal smoother and softer skin. My skin feels relaxed, nourished and well hydrated, I'm so glad this EE Cream doesn't dry my skin out!
When using this EE Cream as a face mask (~10min), the Kaolin clay component of this EE Cream does help to draw out impurities deep inside my pores. While rinsing my skin with lukewarm water, the Jojoba Beads assist in gently buffing any residual impurities on my skin. I love the dual action of this cream as a face mask followed by an exfoliator as the cream was so gentle and soothing to use. It really does feel like I'm getting a thorough cleanse each time I use this EE Cream!
All in all, I prefer to alternate the use this EE Cream as an exfoliant and face mask. I've been using this EE Cream as a face mask once a week and every other time I've been using this as an exfoliant. If you have sensitive skin, then I would happily recommend this EE Cream as the beads are far from being abrasive and the nourishing ingredients help to soothe, hydrate and ease my skin.
The Jojoba Company EE Cream is available at selected pharmacies nationwide and online here.
