This week our tester tried The Jojoba Company’s 100% Natural Jojoba oil 

The lowdown: The Jojoba oil comes in a pump dispenser and a little goes a long way.

Jojoba nourishes and moisturises your skin, hair and nails. Suitable for all ages and skin types.

  • – Visibly smooths lines, wrinkles and stretch marks
  • – Soothes the skin
  • – Hair, scalp, hand and cuticle conditioner
  • – Visibly balances the skin

Our SM tester says: For me, growing up, it was Yasmin Le Bon. Her groomed, no make up make up, her shiny hair and that polished skin that was just – well -glossy; whether she was stepping off a yacht or out of Annabel’s. She just glowed in a way that the Kates and Caras (with their rock chick bleach jobs and their smeared lips) can’t hold a candle to.

Over the years I have tried to emulate Yasmin’s look with everything from 8 Hour Cream (too sticky) to coconut oil (too much like being a walking Bounty bar) but to no avail.

Last week I was sent The Jojoba Company’s 100% Natural Jojoba oil to trial and everything changed. Jojoba oil is similar to the skin’s own cells and easily absorbed, despite being oil. You can use it on dry patches, as hair conditioner, on cuticles… you name it.

I’ve been out in the son with my younger child as well as walking to school recently (what with the heatwave and all) and obviously any help against sun damage and wrinkles is appreciated too.

Each morning I have been using the oil as follows: one drop rubbed into my face before moisturiser, the residue rubbed into my hands, a drop run through my hair after the shower and a little bit on my dry elbows…The whole routine takes less than two minutes and it sinks in straight away. My face looks dewy, but not shiny, my nails have grown, my hair is slicked down with no frizzies.

I honestly can’t praise this product enough – and at £12.99 a bottle I will be ordering it by the van load. It’s one simple step towards looking like an 80s supermodel at the school gates – Result!
