odacite jojoba beads exfoliant

In the beauty world, there’s a lot of different approaches to facial exfoliation.

Some prefer a gritty scrub; others swear by their scrubbing brush heads. A few rely on basics such as wash cloths and gentle cleansers.

I’m some sort of mix between all of these, and the same could be said about Odacite’s Jojoba Beads Exfoliant.

{Odacite sent me a sample of its Jojoba Beads Exfoliant, which retails for $45 for a 1.7-ounce jar.}

Odacite’s Jojoba Beads Exfoliant is one of the most-gentle exfoliators I’ve used — but it’s powerful.

Made with tiny, pure jojoba beads, this exfoliant is housed in a concoction of aloe vera, coconut oil and vegetable glycerin that gives it a creamy yet runny texture that feels wonderful in the morning during my shower.

Because I keep this jar in my shower, the little stick-on letters that make up the jar’s branding come off very easily — my jar is just plain silver, though the bottom sticker with the “Freshiency Date” remains. This is the most important piece of branding on the product!

As mentioned earlier, I typically keep Odacite Jojoba Beads Exfoliant in my shower — and it’s for a good reason.

Perhaps you can chalk it up to “user error,” but I find that the tiny little jojoba beads are difficult to rinse away when used outside of the shower. It’s like sand — you find the beads in the weirdest places even though you thought you washed it all away!

Despite this little annoyance and the disappearing branding (who cares?), my only other critique of Odacite’s Jojoba Beads Exfoliant is the smell.

It’s not anything offensive, but it’s not exactly pretty. To my nose, it smells a bit alcohol-y; I’m wondering what it is in the ingredients list that’s making me smell this?

Organic aloe vera, organic coconut oil, jojoba wax beads, organic jojoba oil, organic lavender, emulsifying vegetable wax, organic olive oil, organic palm stearic acid, organic calendula officinalis extract, vegetable glycerin, organic rooibos tea extract, vitamin E, organic white tea extract, xanthan gum

I’m thinking this is something I may be able to remedy with a few drops of my favorite essential oil. Other than that, this exfoliant is one that I like because of how gentle yet powerful it feels — you get a really good scrub with this baby without feeling like you’re sanding off your face.

At $45 for a 1.7-ounce jar, though, I’d pass on buying this myself because it’s not a perfect fit for my tastes (and smells?). I want a luxury scrub whose packaging can hold up in the shower and be pleasing to my nose from the get-go.

    I haven’t tried Odacite Jojoba Beads Exfoliant and I wouldn’t because of the price and my exfoliation philosophy.

    I use chemical exfoliants (salicylic acid & glycolic acid) because they’re more effective than physical exfoliants for the treatment of my acne and hyperpigmentation. I don’t use physical exfoliants except for occasional use of my microfiber washcloth. I’ve found some more natural/non-toxic products with chemical exfoliants in them so I’m beyond satisfied.

    • Which products do you use?! Do you do the glycolic acid treatments at home or at a spa // medical office?

      • mangomadness

        For salicylic acid, I use the Alba Botanica Natural Acnedote skin care line — Deep Pore Wash (cleanser), Deep Clean Astringent (toner) and Oil Control Lotion (daytime moisturizer). I will try the Invisible Treatment Gel (spot treatment) soon. All of the products have 2% salicylic acid.

        For glycolic acid, I use Reviva Labs 10% Glycolic Acid Cream. I use it nightly. I’ve been using it for a couple of months and it’s really helped. I would go to the dermatologist for a glycolic peel but I’d rather try to treat my skin at home first.

      • I’m also a huge fan of chemical exfoliants, though I use them in much lower concentrations than Mangomadness does (10% glycolic every night would absolutely DESTROY my face).

        I use an exfoliating toner most nights; I like to alternate between the Ursa Major 4-in-1 Face Tonic, which has a 3% blend of both AHA’s and BHA, and the S.W. Basics Toner that contains a small quantity of acetic acid (a super gentle AHA) from the apple cider vinegar. Alternating the more potent Ursa Major with the more gentle S.W. Basics prevents my skin from getting over-exfoliated (and thus breaking out) while still giving a nice consistent boost to my cell turnover :)

          The Ursa Major 4-in-1 Face Tonic has lovely ingredients. You have a nice routine.

          I think I’ll use my glycolic every other night or so. I don’t want to over-exfoliate.

    Did you notice any difference in your skin after your trial period?

    • Not really. I exfoliate twice a week and typically test products for 4 weeks. I think most scrubs will help you out just fine, but it’s a matter of personal preference on which to use! I’d use this scrub again if the scent was more alluring to me. I really liked the texture of the gentle jojoba beads.
