Product Review: Jojoba Company Acne Serum

I have been one of those unfortunate ones who has always suffered with my skin breaking out. Some periods worse than others, and best as I think that my skin is improving, it starts breaking out again! I honestly didn’t think that I would still suffer with ‘teenage’ skin at my age! I have tried so many different products over the years, some haven’t worked at all, and others have worked, at least for a limited time – so when I was asked to trial the *Jojoba Company Acne Serum, I happily accepted, here are my thoughts;  




What They Say:
"A purifying treatment serum rich in aloe vera with a light consistency. It decongests and balances sebum with its strong antiseptic base of nettle and burdock extracts together with the antibacterial benefits of totarol. Designed to help reduce redness and inflammation and help begin the healing process in troubled skin".

RRP: $29.95 (50ml) – Available from the Jojoba Company and select pharmacies and health stores both in Austrlia and overseas.

What I Say:
I have previously tried the Jojoba Company Jojoba Oil, which is an amazing multi-tasking product, so I had high hopes for the Acne Serum as well. Similar for most, if not all of the acne and blemish products that I have used over the years, have been that they have all been loaded with chemicals and other nasties.

Not the Acne Serum from the Jojoba Company!! After some quick research I very quickly discovered that the products from the Australian brand are naturally free from mineral oils, sulphates ,  parabens, artificial fragrances and colours and contain no animal derivatives, and of course it has not been tested on animals. In other words, they are theoretically pretty good for your skin. As a bonus, the products are all made in Australia too!

The Jojoba Company actually has the philosophy that "Why subject your skin to chemical preservatives and synthetic ingredients when you could use a natural alternative that is good for your skin. We all avoid eating, drinking or inhaling chemical preservatives and synthetic foods, why would you risk ingesting them in to your skin. The Jojoba Company's skincare range is naturally good for your skin as well as the earth". Very impressive!

The key ingredients in the Acne Serum are Pure Australian Jojoba, which is an antioxidant, rich in Vitamins A, D & E, and acts as an anti-inflammatory. It also contains Totarol, an anti-bacterial super antioxidant, Nettle, which is balancing the skin, Aloe Vera, which has soothing properties, Green Tea, which is calming, Kakadu Plum, which nourishing and high in Vitamin C, Burdock Root with anti-inflammatory properties, and finally Juniperberry, which has a detoxing effect on the skin.

You can find more detailed information on these natural ingredients here.

I have been using the Acne Serum for roughly a month now and I love it! My skin instantly began to clear up; large pimples quickly became less red and inflamed and the smaller ones started to dry up, and now my skin is probably the best it has been for a very long time as I simply have less pimples, and those that I have are smaller and less ‘angry’ and inflamed.

Although the serum is designed to be used all over the face, I have only been using it where needed, and hence the large 50ml tube will last quite a long time. I can hardly see that I’ve used it!




The actual serum comes in a gorgeous orange plastic tube with a pump. I really love the orange colour of the tube, such a nice refreshing change to other products packaging. And I also love the fact that it comes with a pump, which makes it not only very easy to use, but also very hygienic.

The actual Acne Serum is an extremely light solution and one pump is sufficient to cover the entire face. It absorbs into the skin very quickly leaving the skin soft and smooth to touch, and far from dried out, unlike other acne products.

It has an orange floral scent to it, which is very faint, but still disappears as soon as the serum has been absorbed into the skin.

All in all, this is a fantastic product, and I really love that is natural and so gentle on the skin, yet so effective. So I will most definitely continue to use this serum whenever my skin is acting up. And if you too have constant breakouts and require something more natural to target the inflammation, then I highly recommend that you try it!

  12. I bought this after seeing this review, and I'm so glad I did! My skin was so bad for no particular reason (gotta love my skin) and this is definitely helped it improve! I've only been using it for a few days, but I can already see a difference. I'm hoping my skin will clear up completely soon, and I'm sure it will. Yay! :D
    Thanks for the great review! :D x
