Using jojoba oil as a hero ingredient, the vegan skincare products from Ogee promises to restore the natural beauty of the skin from within. My experience with jojoba oil has been a bit of a hit or miss but these certified organic and cruelty-free products housed in luxurious bottles looked too good to ignore.
The Gentle Glow Cleansing Cloths ($19 for 3 pack 10) aims to cleanse, hydrate, and exfoliate the skin with plant-fiber, microporous cloths, drenched in jojoba oil, aloe vera juice, and botanically derived AHAs. I prefer cleansing balms to remove makeup but this comes in handy for times I want to remove my makeup in the middle of the day at work. The cloths are soft and smooth and they leave my skin fresh and cleansed afterward. It feels gentle and moisturizing as well.
Using boswellia tree extract, the Liquid Gold Cleansing Oil ($85) removes makeup with restoring the natural hydration of the skin. This smells like a garden, which of course I like. It’s thicker than most of the cleansing oils I usually prefer but my face always feels cleansed and taut after using this. It was able to easily remove cream products and my eyeliner with a few strokes. Since the consistency is a bit thicker, I put some pressure into mixing this with a bit of water to rinse, though.
Claiming to be an anti-aging serum, the Seeds of Youth Serum ($98) works to hydrate, boost radiance, and firm the skin using edelweiss plant stem cell, hyaluronic acid, and cold-pressed jojoba oil. This feels very light on the skin. It doesn’t leave a tacky finish and sinks into the skin after a few minutes. However, it feels a bit heavier than I’d like so I only use this at night. I used this for more than a month and it did help hydrate the skin. However, the thing that I liked best about this is how radiant my skin looks the morning after. I will be using this again once it gets colder as I feel like this would work best for my oily skin once the temperature drops again.
The Jojoba Glow Face Oil ($64) is designed to moisturize, restore, and smooth the skin using jojoba oil. I like using this on the dry patches of my skin. After a few days, it would soften and smooth those areas so I would say this does what it claims to do.
For the price, these products would work best to those whose skin responds positively to jojoba and those with dry skin. For my oily skin, however, I would like to use these again, especially the Seeds of Youth Serum, come the colder months.
