He said/she said – JooMo Honey & Orange Face Wash review

Jamie

I have to admit I’ve kind of stopped noticing all the items that appear in the bathroom nowadays. There are too many different jars, tubes, and bottles for me to keep track of. This also means could bring home loads more stuff and I wouldn’t be able to tell if it’s new or had always been there. I suppose other women do this with clothes and shoes, and I’ve got plenty of closet space so I guess I got off easy.

Because I don’t pay attention, I just grabbed this and started using it one day. The first thing I noticed as I put it on my face was the smell, like American cinnamon buns which in turn made me hungry. Also as this doesn’t foam up I wasn’t sure if I accidentally put moisturiser on my face! I did double-check with the beauty queen though and she confirmed in fact it is a face wash. I noticed on the tube it mentions it is for sensitive skin and I do get dry patches on my forehead. I don’t know if that qualifies as sensitive skin but this has stopped it from getting dry/flaky, especially after shaving (not my forehead  – obviously that would be an entirely different problem all together).

I didn’t realise this was for young skin, but the penny dropped when I got it in the post, the Tween packaging gave it away. Then I wondered what it would actually do for my face that is firmly in the forties. You’ve heard me moan about the spot family that appears on my chin from time to but otherwise that I don’t have problem skin.

Jamie and I started using JooMo at the same time and we both enjoyed the fact our skin smelled like the cinnamon buns my mom makes. We have ploughed right through this so it has been our go to face wash for the last month. I think we both probably used too much to begin with as it is runny (no thickening agents), so you don’t need to squeeze it out of the tube. Also because it doesn’t foam you just naturally put more in your hand for some reason so you need to be mindful of this. The other unique feature is that this is a 2 in 1 face wash/moisturiser which makes sense that it helped Jamie’ dry face patches. I think I will notice more a difference myself if I continue using this now that the weather is getting colder.

Aside from all this the most amazing thing about this brand is that it is Cooperative business owned and run by young people. As someone who is heavily involved in the non-profit sector through work and as a trustee for two Nottinghamshire charities, I find this to be a breath of fresh air. It also makes me want to support the brand even more as they help young people into jobs which are currently thin on the ground.

Oh did I mention the price –  £4.75 for 100ml, Jamie reckons we should buy an entire caseload of it! Normally I would agree but this has an expiration date on the packaging similar to Lush fresh products so we’ll be purchasing one for now.

I’ve seen two other reviews of the JoMoo Face wash from other bloggers: Moxie Reviews and Lady of Lane which are well worth a read!
