Continuing with the Winter skin-savers, today’s post is all about oil for skin moisturizing. Eden’s Semilla have sent me their Vitamin E oil and Jojoba oil, and both are fantastic! If you have not tried moisturizing your skin with oil, I highly recommend you start- you can thank me later 😉
I have used many oils as part of my skincare routine, I use them on my face as well as my body. I have tried various different brands oils, and I can assure you that Eden’s Semilla is top of the line. Both the Vitamin E and Jojoba oil are so moisturizing on the skin, they really give you the conditioned skin texture and look we are all after.
Vitamin E oil
This is a special kind of Vitamin E oil, because it is a blend of Organic Rosehip and Jojoba. I really liked using this all over my body and my nails. Using this on my nails really helped to condition my cuticles.
The packaging reads “Topical Vitamin E contains excellent healing properties for damaged or tired looking skin. A rich blend of organic Jojoba and Rosehip delivers a natural carrier oil that is easily absorbed, fast acting and full of natural goodness. Hydrates and nourishes all in one.”
All of these ingredients work wonders on the skin. I even noticed a difference in a small scar I have. Using this oil on it helped to take down the redness and puffiness by conditioning it. Rosehip and Jojoba are both great oils for diminishing the appearance of scars, I have used Rosehip seed oil on its own before, and it really does make a difference.
Benefits listed on the packaging:
- Antioxidant protection
- Non greasy
- High absorbency
- Hydrates & nourishes
The Jojoba oil contains Vitamin C and fatty acids for skin defence.
The packaging reads “Closely resembling a sebum, a substance naturally produced by skin glands to promote a softer, more radiant complexion. Contains Vitamin C and essential fatty acids for all round skin defence. A natural conditioner that leaves hair silky smooth- lasting protection for the skin and scalp.”
Jojoba oil is great because it mimics the natural oil your body produces, that is why it is so effective when used on the skin. It is known to improve dryness and skin texture. I applied this on my body and feet. After doing a foot soak with some epsom salts and lavender essential oil, I applied the Jojoba oil to my feet, and it helped a lot with any dryness I had.
Benefits listed on packaging:
- Natural conditioner
- Non greasy
- Protects and repairs
- High absorbency
Both oils are 100% natural, and extremely conditioning for the skin, but on top of this they are also fast-absorbing and non-greasy. This is a HUGE plus in my books. Personally, I don’t like it when my skin feels greasy, or like there is residue on it after using a product- especially oils (even though this can be hard to avoid.) Eden’s Semilla oils absorb so well into the skin, and you can barely feel any residue leftover.
Both oils are beneficial for:
After using these oils for about two weeks, I notice a difference in the overall consistency of my skin. By this I mean normally in Winter I have to moisturize my body every single day to avoid getting dry skin, and by the next day I notice my skin already feeling tight and needing to be moisturized again. Yet since I have been using the Eden’s Semilla oils, my skin still feels conditioned by the next day when I go to moisturize again. I really like the texture of these oils as well, they are both not too thick and not too thin. They are very easy to spread on the skin- a little goes a long way, and scent wise they are both very light.
Tip: I like to use these together as well! If you are pressed for time, or you don’t want to wait for the oil to absorb, I suggest mixing this with body moisturizer. I put some drops of each in the palm of my hand and mix it with my favourite body moisturizer. This way it spreads on evenly, and you don’t have to wait as long to get dressed.
