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’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.
