Olive Rich Cleansing Milk (100ml)
The face polish (on the left) and cleansing milk (on the right) has a smooth consistency.
Olive Illuminating Face Polish (50ml)
The scrub beads present in the product are actually ground olive pits so it is safe for the environment as microplastic scrub beads which are still present in some products can cause water pollution, harming marine life. Also, the ground olive pits are not too abrasive for the skin but gentle.
I personally like this scrub a lot and I like the fact that the packaging is minimal. The product itself is stored in a skinny tube. Although the tube is rather small as compared to other brands of scrub, it can last you for probably 3 months if you use it twice every week. All you need is a small amount of it to exfoliate your skin.
Olive Reviving Eye Gel (20ml)
It is very gentle on the skin and I really like its hydrating effects. I noticed that the skin at my under eye area is more plumped up the next morning. Unlike other eye products, this is moisturizing but not too rich for the skin around the eye area.
Although it is stated as fragrance-free, it has this unpleasant odour to it. It is probably due to the combination of the ingredients that results in that scent. I reckon it’s the combination of olives and kiwi.
You might have to hold your breath while applying the eye gel around your eye area. But what I would do is to squirt some product at the back of my hand first, then wave it in the air for the scent to diffuse away. It is more bearable this way.
Initially, I thought the product smelt unpleasant because it was expired but it isn’t so.
Remember to check the expiry date of your beauty products too!
It’s a great product but the scent-wise, it can be a little unbearable.
Olive Pomegranate Hand and Nail Cream
The consistency of this hand and nail cream is quite thin and light. It would really work well for those with sensitive skin and also safe for kids. This would make a good Christmas gift for the young ones.
Like the illuminating face polish, the cream is stored in a skinny tube which could be easily slipped into our bags and carried it with us around.
Ingredients: olive squalane, pomegranate extract, shea butter, aloe vera, vitamin E
Olive Exfoliating Moisture Body Scrub (200g)
I would use it after soaping my body during a shower, about twice a week. It just leaves your skin smelling great of all the plant oils and when I wake up the next morning, my skin still feels soft and supple.
It smells really pleasant too and it provides that pleasant bath experience.
If you left the jar untouched for a few days, you will notice that the oils will start to float up and forms a top layer. That’s actually the golden layer which contains all the natural oils to nourish your skin.
You also don’t really need much of the product to exfoliate the whole body. Perhaps just one teaspoon of it is sufficient. This beauty tub is a must-have for all women. And if you have not used a body scrub before, I would urge you to! You feel somewhat ‘cleaner’ after a good scrub.
Time to plant this olive tree in your bathroom!
