Jojoba Oil, Can I Pronounce You Correctly Today?

*I received this product free for testing and reviewing purposes. All opinions are my own*

In the beauty world, there are a lot of ingredients that are great for you but hard to pronounce. One of the one's I have to constantly think about before I say is Jojoba Oil, which is pronounced like ha ho baa. You've probably seen this ingredient pop up in plenty of your skin care and hair care products, but have you ever tried it all by itself? Foxbrim was kind enough to send me a bottle of their 100% Pure Certified Organic Jojoba Oil to test out and review for you guys.

For those who don't know, Jojoba Oil is full of essential fatty acids, antioxidants, and Vitamin E and B Complex. What this means is this is a powerhouse moisturizer for your skin that has anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties. You can use this in your hair, on your skin, to remove makeup (though I personally don't like oil for removing makeup), and as a carrier oil in homemade spa treatments. Many many years ago I had a wonderful lip balm gel that was mainly Jojoba Oil, maybe I'll have to see if I can recreate it. The oil itself is a light golden color and smells vaguely like peanuts to me. While not sticky this is a very thick oil so a little goes a long way. Don't dump out a whole dropper full onto your hands like I did. Oops.

I've been mainly using this on my hands, my camping trip left them dried out and cracked, and I've noticed a significant improvement in my cuticles and nails. And I've also been massaging it into my feet to both ease soreness and to rehydrate my beach dried feet. This product really does have a dozen uses, and I can't wait to create some new DIY projects with it. Foxbrim is also a company I like quite a bit, so that helps. They do not test on animals and are located here in the United States. I really like this product and think if you are looking for Jojoba Oil this is a great one to get. If you would like to purchase a bottle you can here for $16.95 with free Prime Shipping.
