Oil Does the Body Good

Oils are definitely the "thing" on the beauty scene these days. It seems like everyone has found a place for oil in their beauty routines, and I am no different. I originally thought it was so odd that people would put oil on their face, or in their hair. I just thought it was so counter-productive. I have since learned otherwise, and I use oils everyday. Jojoba oil is one of the most frequently used oils, similar to argan oil, because it has a variety of uses. From moisturizing skin, to healing and protecting your hair, and even being a great make-up remover, it's benefits are aplenty. I recently experimented with Foxbrim's Jojoba Oil, and I can see all of the craze!

Jojoba oil is the liquid that resides in the seed of the Jojoba plant, which is a shrub found in southern Arizona, southern California and northwestern Mexico. When purchasing Jojoba oil, you want to make sure you find it unrefined, as the refining process tends to change the substance making it less effective. When unrefined it will have a golden color. If it is refined it will be clear. It has a "nutty" smell, similar to Argan oil, but less nutty. I actually prefer the scent of Jojoba Oil to Argan Oil. Jojoba Oil has a longer shelf life than many other oils because it does not contain any triglycerides. It tends to be most frequently used in natural and organic beauty products including moisturizers and hair care (shampoo and conditioner). Many people make their own natural lotions or body creams by using Jojoba Oil as their carrier oil. Surprisingly, Jojoba Oil is also a fungicide, and can be used to control mildew.

I use Foxbrim's Jojoba Oil in conjunction with my facial moisturizer to add a boost of hydration to my face. I mix them together before applying to my skin, and it works wonders on my dry flaky patches. I also use this on my cuticles and even on the rough skin patches on my elbows and feet. I have found that the Foxbrim Jojoba Oil has a light scent that is not disruptive whatsoever, that it absorbs quickly and it does not make your skin feel greasy or slimy. Plus Foxbrim uses organic, unrefined and cold pressed Jojoba Oil, so you know you are getting the best of the best. I have used MANY of their products, and I have nothing poor to say about them. When it comes to oil, a little goes a long way, so the 4 ounce bottle will last you a long time!

I give Foxbrim's Jojoba Oil 10 stars:

If you are interested in purchasing Foxbrim's Jojoba Oil, you can do so HERE, where it costs $16.95 for the 4 oz sized bottle. Very reasonable pricing if you ask me!
