If you follow me on Instagram, you may remember that I started using Jason a week ago. My skin always gets so dry and flaky at this time of the year and I felt January was the perfect time to make the effort to actually look after the skin on my body and not just focus on my face. Apparently, I’m not alone on this, as winter leaves the nation’s females feeling as if their skin has aged by 2.5 years every 12 months!
If you’re not familiar with Jason Natural Care, it’s one of the leading natural beauty brands with over 50 years of experience. I’ve been testing out the Smoothing Coconut range that uses unrefined virgin coconut oil and includes a multipurpose Coconut Oil, Body Wash and Hand & Body Lotion
I was first drawn to the Body Wash as it comes in a huge bottle with a pump; perfect for placing on the side of the shower and is suitable for the whole family. I’ve had mine in the bathroom all week and my entire family have commented on how convenient it is. I’ve also found it to be a great hydrating step in the shower, as most of the body washes I’ve previously used tended to be quite drying and would strip my skin of natural oils, which is a definite deal breaker for me, especially in winter. The Body Wash has Virgin Coconut Oil and Shea Butter to moisturise even extremely dry skin and offers long lasting hydration to keep my limbs looking soft and smooth, even when the temperature hits zero.
I then like to finish my shower/bath routine by applying the Smoothing Coconut Hand & Body Lotion, which also contains unrefined Virgin Coconut Oil, Shea Butter and is rich in Vitamin E. I’ll admit that moisturising my body is a bit of a new thing for me, I know I should be doing it but it’s a step I usually skip. However, it’s amazing the difference the Jason Hand & Body Lotion has made. My skin has been quite dry as it’s been so cold in London recently, but there’s been a noticeable improvement with my skin and I no longer have to worry about dry patches or redness. I’
The Coconut Oil is something I wish I had tried earlier! I often cook with Coconut Oil but haven’t ever used it for beauty purposes until now. It’s so versatile and I love to use it as a hydrating mask for my hair or to remove my makeup. However, if you’re feeling a little creative at home, you can definitely mix it with some sugar and use it as a scrub, which works amazingly!
When using it in my hair I leave it in for a few hours on the ends of my hair before shampooing out, it obviously doesn’t reverse the damage on my hair but it definitely makes my hair smoother, more hydrated and makes it appear healthier. Since my skin on my face is also quite dry I love a balm cleanser and coconut oil works perfectly, it gets through foundation, lipstick and even waterproof mascara, although you do have to ensure it’s been removed thoroughly with a washcloth. I also think it’s so nice to move away from chemical-laden products and try natural products which allow my skin to breathe, after all, it’s the biggest organ of the body.
Overall I’m so glad I started using the range, my body is definitely thanking me for it! January is normally such a depressing month, but having hydrated skin and healthy hair has really helped to improve my mood and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the year will bring!
