I was on a serious hunt for some body oil and came by Alba Botanica Un-Petroleum Multi-Purpose Jelly by sheer coincidence. I’ve been investing in body oils to moisturize my skin and my hair. I also wanted to use the same oil for my eyebrows and lashes to stimulate their growth. I knew I would find a product that could do all of this, but I didn’t expect this product.
I’m not a huge fan of petroleum jelly, but I’m not against it either. Luckily for me this product is un-petroleum, which is totally different. I’ve never seen un-petroleum before in my life. I was impressed immediately as I read the ingredients.
I needed castor seed oil and coconut oil for my eyebrows and lash growth. I also know that these oils amongst the rest that are mentioned, are amazing for your skin. Then I thought I could easily put some of this on the ends of my hair for extra moisture protection, since they’ve been bugging out lately. I hate those single strand knots that you get at the ends of your hair sometimes. I’ve discovered that the best way to get rid of them is to use an oil, or moisturizer. You dab some moisturizer at the tip of your fingers and rub the knot lightly until it comes undone. After I brainstormed the many ways I could use this product I read the uses for it and was sold.
When I read that this jelly could take off my makeup remover, and gently, I was too excited. I didn’t even think about removing my makeup with the product I was looking for. Oil is perfect for removing false lashes but I don’t use it as a makeup remover. In my opinion eye makeup is the hardest makeup to remove. Finding an awesome makeup remover was next on my list for New beauty products.
I’ve been using this un-petroleum jelly since day one. I decided to moisturize my skin with it, in the same exact way that I do my oil washes. I rub a small amount into my face and then rinse is with hot water. You can also do this with raw shea butter and coconut oil. I also used it to remove my waterproof mascara, eyeshadow, and the shading on my eyebrows. I even took a step further and rubbed a little on my lips, eyebrows, and eyelashes before bed.
I would say about three weeks or four at least have passed since I purchased this product. It’s definitely become a necessity in my beauty care regimens. I use the un-petroleum jelly in my day and night time routines. I will say that I love the the way my face feels right now. It’s super soft and smooth. This product is non comedogenic, which means it won’t clog your pores and cause pimples. I actually fell more in love with this product because I’ve use this on a pimple, or this month. The reason why is because of the skin is broken the moisture from the jelly helps with the healing process, and it creates a barrier to keep bacteria from entering into it.
