Olive Skin Care Review

After being diagnosed with breast cancer in November 2015, I have dedicated my time to improving my family’s health. This includes finding products that contain less, or better still no, harmful chemicals.

Olive Skin Care Review - Love from Mim

Some great products from the Olive Skin Care range!

I heard about Olive Skin Care NZ through a friend who told about their family-friendly range of skin care and beauty products. They contain premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil benefits and Olive Leaf Extract. I love olive oil for skin care – in fact I’ve used it on my babies when they’ve had dry skin or cradle cap. It has worked wonders for them.

Olive Skin care is produced on the Simunovich Estate in New Zealand. The products are rich in vitamins and antioxidants and promise that their products contain “the most powerful, natural, quality skin care”. I was delighted to be sent some lovely products from the range to put to the test. Here’s what I think of Olive Skin Care’s olive oil for face, hair and body products:

Olive Skin Care Hair Nourishing Shampoo review

Is olive oil good for hair?

You may remember that I lost all of my hair from the chemotherapy that followed my cancer diagnosis. Since I finished chemo, it has grown back into a short pixie cut. I’ve been doing everything I can to look after it and keep it in good condition. I’d already heard great things about olive oil for hair.

Olive Skin Care Hair Nourishing Shampoo - Love from Mim

Ingredients:

A moisturing and hydrating shampoo for natural and salon treated hair.

Contains Olive Oil, Olive Leaf Extract, Cornsilk Extract, Nettle Extract, Red Clover Extract and Pro vitamin B5.

How I’ve been using it:

I try not to wash my hair too often because apart from saving me time, it also reduces the amount of damage I may cause it. So I’ve been using a pea sized amount of this shampoo 2-3 times per week on mine and my children’s hair.

It looks and smells like thicker olive oil but lathers nicely. My hair is very short and I do not feel the need to use conditioner yet so I’ve only been using this to wash my hair.

My thoughts:

I’ve always had very oily hair and I worried that a shampoo containing oil might make that worse but it really doesn’t. In fact it’s made it look much shiner. Despite using no conditioner, the olive oil has helped to naturally condition my hair and comb through easily after washing. There is a conditioner in the range if you need one.

When I’ve washed the kids hair, they haven’t complained if any has ran into their eyes so this has to be a plus point for any mum!

I love how shiny and smooth it has made my hair feel and I’d be really interested to see how it works on longer hair so I’ll keep using it as my hair grows. I had always thought of oils weighing down fine hair like mine but so far, that definitely hasn’t happened.

My tips:

A tiny bit does go a long way so try a pea-sized amount first and only add more if you need to. It will also last much longer!

Olive Skin Care Olive Leaf Rosehip Oil review

Is olive oil good for your skin?

As well as having naturally oily hair, my skin has always been really oily too and prone to congestion. So skin care products that contain oil have always scared me. In fact I’ve favoured skin care products that reduce oil and dry out skin so I wondered how using this Olive Leaf Rosehip Oil would go. (Buy here)

Olive Skin Care Olive Leaf Rosehip Oil - Love from Mim

This promises to help reduce scars, stretchmarks, pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles. So yes please!

Ingredients:

Rosehip oil is rich in Vitamin A and essential fatty acids (Omega 3 and 6), known to promote collagen renewal and minimise moisture loss, to naturally improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks, fine lines and pigmentation, promoting smoother and perfectly hydrated skin.

How I’ve been using it:

Whilst the instructions said it could be used morning and night, I decided to use this just before bed. I apply a couple of drops to my skin after cleansing – slight damp skin which helps it absorb better I think. I started with 1 drop at first to see if it left my skin oily and built up to a couple.

My thoughts:

When I wake up, my skin definitely has a little oil on the surface but not much. If anything, it’s that feeling after you’ve had a facial when your skin feels really hydrated and ‘plumper’.

I’ve used it almost every night before bed for 3 weeks now and it hasn’t made my skin any oilier at all so I’m definitely going to continue using it.

I have uneven skin and pigmentation and whilst it’s too early to see a big difference in the latter, I do think the skin looks smoother and it certainly feels smoother. One thing I have noticed is that applying make up is easier and I think that’s because my skin is more hydrated now.

Does olive oil clog pores? I haven’t found that to be the case with my oily skin.

My tips:

Don’t be put off trying this if you have oily skin, just start at night time only and a little at first.

Olive Skin Care 100% Natural All-Purpose Balm Review

I love products that are multi-purpose – they save us money and space too rather than have cluttered cupboards. And if I love one thing it’s decluttering!

Olive Skin Care 100% Natural All-Purpose Balm - Love from Mim

Ingredients:

Contains pure olive leaf extract, sweet almond and avocado oils, beeswax and shea butter. (Buy here)

How I’ve been using it:

I’ve used this balm for so many different purposes already on myself and my children.

It really is as versatile as it promises and we use it as a lip balm and on dry skin and hands. My hands get so dry from constantly washing them and cleaning up after the kids and this balm has been a lovely, indulgent way to moisturise them before bedtime. I also use it after a manicure on my cuticles.

My thoughts:

As I’ve said, anything ‘multi-purpose’ gets a big tick from me and this balm is the perfect size for my handbag or changing bag too. I trust the ingredients enough to apply it to my own and my kid’s lips when they’re dry. The fragrance is very subtle too.

My tips:

This is a great balm to take away on holidays or trips when you need to save space in your bag!

So that is my Olive Skin Care review of three of the lovely products from the range. I’m looking forward to testing out some more – olive oil and skin care are the perfect combo!

I’ve always been a big fan of the of the olive oil benefits for skin care. This range combines it with other great ingredients to really help my family’s skin. Plus the olive oil benefits for hair are fantastic too.

I really hope you’ve enjoyed my Olive Skin care review! Who knew there were so many olive oil uses!

    Sounds great! I have often used oil (olive or coconut) in my own beauty products such as body scrubs, hair treatments, for cracked heels etc. It does wonders. I’ll check out the range.

      That’s such a good tip about coconut oil too – they’re both so multi-purpose aren’t they! x

    Would love to hear your long term round-up regarding the effect on your skin pigmentation, as I hate mine and feel super self conscious of it on my face. Thanks, Mim.

      I’ll definitely update you with how I get on :) I hate it too and two pregnancies didn’t help it at all! x

    Sounds awesome! I eat a very clean diet due to health issues but I still keep putting toxic crap on my skin.
    I am not much of a beauty product person and it all just seems overwhelming but your post made it seem a lot clearer.

      It’s such a big change to try and cut things out though isn’t it – it’s a process for me and taking small steps is helping :) x

    I like the sound of this stuff and I love that you specified that it is harmful chemicals, and not just chemicals, that you try to limit. Very important difference, there!
