As a huge fan of skincare products, I’m always looking for new additions to add to my routine and recently I’ve been trying oils. I totally loved the whole coconut oil trend and I’ve been using Argan and Moroccan oils for a while now. All oils have different benefits for skin and hair so I’ve been curious about trying other ones as well. Recently, I received Eden’s Semilla Vitamin E oil and Jojoba oil to test out and share my feedback with all of you!
Eden’s Semilla has a range of natural oils, essential oils and facial serums and is based in the U.S. The oils I’ll be reviewing today are from the 100% natural oils range. The box packaging of the oils is quite simple and lists the different benefits and uses as well.
The bottles also each come with their own droppers. The bottles have a sepia tone and are quite sturdy but I do wish the bottles were clear since I think it’d give it a more minimalistic look. It’s recommend to use 2-3 drops of the oils but I’d say it also depends on how dry your skin is and what you’re using it for.
The Vitamin E oil blend is extracted from plants that are naturally rich in Vitamin E and is more efficient than other synthetic oils. It’s quite versatile since it can be used for skin, hair, and nails. I mostly used this oil for my face since vitamin E is great for repairing damaged skin and hydrating it as well. I used it as a spot treatment for acne scars and it’s quite effective. It also goes on to skin smoothly and you don’t need a lot of product.
It doesn’t leave a sticky residue and absorbs into skin quickly. The scent can be a little strong at first but disappears after some time. It’s suitable for sensitive skin types since it doesn’t cause any irritation. It’s also good at moisturizing the skin around nails that can get dry in winter and it makes damaged hair softer as well.
The Jojoba Oil blend is 100% organic and good for moisturizing. While Vitamin E oil is good at taking care of already damaged skin, Jojoba oil deals with more present concerns such as acne, inflammation, and hydrating dry skin (which is the worst in winter). I found it to be a lot more moisturizing than the other oil and I used this all over my face instead of just as a spot treatment and you can apply it after washing your face as part of your skincare routine.
It’s also good for moisturizing hands and a good moisturizing alternative in general for those of us who don’t like the heavy feeling that a face cream leaves and want a lighter option. It’s effective at taking care of split ends as well as a scalp treatment, however I still prefer using oils for skin over hair since that’s my personal preference.
Overall, I enjoyed using both these oils and was pleasantly surprised by how effective they were since I was a little unsure at first about how my sensitive skin would react to them. I’d recommended it to people with sensitive skin and those looking to add any natural oils to their routine which aren’t sticky or greasy. I rate both these oils an 8 out of 10.
I hope you guys enjoyed reading this post and let me know what you think in the comments below as well as which oils are your favourite!
