Jojoba oil has saved my skin during Christmas trip to France so, I am going to review about it. This Jojoba Oil comes from Utama Spice, one of natural skincare company in Bali.
What is it?
Based on their website, Jojoba oil is structurally and chemically very similar to the human sebum produced by the sebaceous glands in our skin because sebum is also largely comprised of wax mono esters. In most cases, it can act as a substitute while giving similar or added benefits compared to sebum.
What is in it?
100% Pure Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil.
Traveled to France during mild winter gave my skin a hard time. Although, it was only around 9° – 15° Celsius, still coming from average 30°C daily makes it unbearable. Luckily, I packed a bottle of Jojoba oil that I have bought in early November at Utama Spice store in Sanur. After a shower, I apply it generously to my body before they get a shiver from the cold temperature. Since I do it in a hurry motion, the shoulder and bottom part often have forgotten. I found these parts were flaky when I am back in Bali. Not nice. I put jojoba oil again for a couple of times, and they are back to smooth.
I was surprised that I did not use any body lotion at all and my body skin still hydrated. So I recommend this body oil to anyone who suffers from cold weather and does not have much time to apply many products on the body.
Price: IDR 330,000
Size: 95 ml comes in a glass bottle
I hope this review could help anyone who is looking for preventing their skin from harsh weather 🙂
