Satthwa Unrefined & Cold Pressed Jojoba Oil Review, Swatch-
Hello my pretties!
I have read & heard so much about the plethora of benefits of the Jojoba oil (pronounced as HO-HO-ba) but have somehow never gotten around to buying & using it. Sathhwa, a natural brand renowned for their 100% pure products recently offered me to try out their newly launched unrefined & cold pressed jojoba oil & I was thrilled *_* Read on to know if jojoba is worth the hype 🙂
What Satthwa Says-
Benefits of Jojoba Oil
The Jojoba (pronounced ho-ho-ba) plants care is minimal and this perennial shrub grows wild. Native American discovered the remarkable versatility of the Jojoba plant, they would heat the jojoba seeds to soften them and in a mortar and pestle would grind it to create a buttery substance. This was used to heal hair and skin conditions, including sunburn.
Rich is Vitamin E, it reduces the appearance of wrinkles.
Mix a few drops of Lemongrass essential oil with Jojoba oil to fight stubborn dandruff.
Jojoba oil can be used to remove all traces of makeup naturally and gently.
Moisturises the cuticles, reduces breakage, and encourages healthy nail growth.
Jojoba oil makes for a great moisturiser for your body. It softens and restores your skin without leaving it oily.
Jojoba oil prevents and stops hair loss and thinning caused by the clogged hair follicles.
Price: 499/- INR for 50ml (Available now for an introductory price of 380/- INR) on Flipkart & Amazon.in
My take on the Satthwa Unrefined & Cold Pressed Jojoba Oil-
The oil comes in a very user & travel friendly cute sturdy plastic bottle with a flip-top cap which dispenses the oil drop-wise & a plastic protector to ensure no leakage/spillage 🙂 Kudos to thoughtful & convenient packaging 🙂
The oil is yellow in color with a consistency leaning towards the thicker side & for a moment I was perplexed if I want to really apply it on my face 😐 The oil, in spite of being a bit thick, spreads easily on skin (I need just 2-3 drops for entire face & neck) & gets absorbed immediately without leaving any sort of greasy feel/residue on skin <3 My face looked & felt immediately hydrated & supple & trust me, I needed NO night cream for my dry skin whenever I applied this oil after toning my face. NO night cream! And I still woke up to rested, bright, supple skin in the morning without any stretchy feel or increased oiliness.
I tested this oil out in multiple ways & haven’t been disappointed at all 😀 I massaged a bit on my fully made up face at night & it removed every speck of makeup without any skin/eye irritation <3 I used this as a body oil before/after my bath & I found it to be incredibly hydrating even with using a tiny little amount 🙂 I had terribly ragged fingernails & bits of dry skin around them & this oil has helped me a lot in hydrating & repairing them as well 😀
As a hair oil too, I loved it when I mixed a little almond/coconut oil with it to thin it out a bit & after washing, my frizz was controlled to an extent & my hair felt smoother & silkier 🙂 As to their claims of helping with hair loss, I really couldn’t say after using this for 2-3 weeks only & keeping my fingers crossed for beneficial effects in the long run ^_^
The oil is fragrance & preservative free, hence safe to use on every skin type & for people with sensitive noses 🙂 It did not break my skin out or cause any aggravation.
Pros of the Satthwa Unrefined & Cold Pressed Jojoba Oil:
1> Very travel & user friendly packaging in a sturdy plastic bottle with a flip-top cap.
2> Consistency a bit thick but spreads easily on skin & instantly absorbed 🙂
3> Amazingly hydrating for dry/mature skin & no face cream required after this *_*
4> Repairs & nourishes ragged skin around nails & dry nails.
5> Works great as a makeup remover & removes every trace of makeup without irritating eyes/skin.
6> Great body oil to use before/after bath for soothing & moisturizing skin.
7> Liked it a lot as a hair oil as well & made my hair more manageable & frizz-free.
8> Fragrance free & suitable for sensitive skin/noses.
Cons of the Satthwa Unrefined & Cold Pressed Jojoba Oil:
On the pricier side 😐
Swatch of the Satthwa Unrefined & Cold Pressed Jojoba Oil-
My Rating: 4.8/5!
Do I recommend the Satthwa Unrefined & Cold Pressed Jojoba Oil?
Satthwa Unrefined & Cold Pressed Jojoba Oil is a 100% natural carrier oil which has a host of amazing uses for skin & hair & I have loved it in every way I have tried it out 🙂 Owing to its similarity with the sebum produced by the body, it has such great absorbency into skin & hence superior hydration power along with the fact that it is rich in Vitamin E, hence a great anti-ageing substance as well. Do try it out & you might just be converted! Recommended 🙂
