AbsoluteJOI Skincare: Clean Beauty for Melanin Skin

When it comes to skincare products, it’s almost impossible to find one brand where every product works for everybody. But, I CAN say that I’ve discovered one skincare brand that I think you’ll like…no matter your skin type.

The brand’s products are free of the harmful ingredients I always caution against, and they’re gentle and effective. 

Let’s talk more about AbsoluteJOI Skincare!

ABOUT THE BRAND

The first thing you need to know about AbsoluteJOI is the person behind the brand. She was inspired to create her own skincare line after being frustrated with the lack of options available for her and her daughters’ skin issues.

“The face of clean beauty and a healthy lifestyle is not a brown face, and I would like us to feel more comfortable and welcome.” ~Dr. Anne Beal 

You can read more about Dr. Anne Beal’s story in an interview on Beauty Independent here.

In terms of ingredients, AbsoluteJOI identifies itself as a clean beauty brand. So, you won’t see anything with parabens, sulfates, dyes, or fragrances. This includes essential oils. And their products are cruelty-free and made in the USA and France.

Now, let’s dive into my review of the products and a few of my favorites! (I’ll try to update this list as the brand expands its line).

PRODUCT REVIEWS

Sunflower & Moringa Fresh Cleanse Oil

You all know I’m a big believer in double-cleansing. It’s a mandatory step in my evening routine. Check out my blog on oil cleansers for more of my thoughts on the topic. 

AbsoluteJOI’s Sunflower & Moringa Fresh Cleansing Oil has a wonderfully silky texture and removes all my eye makeup. Those are two key qualities of a good oil cleanser for me.

I enjoy oil cleansers with rich, smooth textures, that remove my eye makeup without needing to tug on my eyes and doesn’t leave a residue when you remove it. This oil cleanser hits the mark. I do wish it came in a bigger size, though.

INGREDIENTS:

Sunflower (Helianthus Annuus) Seed Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Sorbitan Trioleate, Polysorbate 80, Moringa Oleifera Seed Oil, Shea Butter Ethyl Esters, Tocopheryl Acetate, Tocopherol, Squalene, Soybean (Glycine Soja) Oil, Beta-Sitosterol

When Do I Use This?

I use this in my evening routine to start my double cleanse.

The Bundle of JOI set is $39, and it includes the Oil Cleanser, Gel Cleanser, and Toner. It’s a great deal if you’re looking to purchase more than one product from the line.

RANKING:

Hydrating Gel Foam Cleanser

This is a soap-free, pH-balanced cleanser that claims to support your skin barrier. So, this will never leave your skin feeling dry and tight. I think its a quality cleanser, but as someone with dry skin, I prefer creamier cleansers.

I don’t have anything negative to say about this cleanser; it’s simple and effective. It’s just not my texture preference.

INGREDIENTS:

Water (Aqua), Acrylates/Beheneth-25 Methacrylate Copolymer, Glycerin, Sodium Lauroyl Methyl Isethionate, Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Cocamidopropyl Hydroxysultaine, Panthenol, Lactic Acid, Ethylhexylglycerin, Pantolactone, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Chloride, Sodium Benzoate, Citric Acid

When Do I Use This?

I’ve used this in my morning and evening routine. But, I generally use this in conjunction with the Sunflower & Moringa Fresh Cleanse Oil.

RANKING:

Balancing pH Face Toner with Aloe, Oat & Hyaluronic Acid

AbsoluteJOI’s face toner contains aloe, oat, and hyaluronic acid. These ingredients calm and hydrate the skin while maintaining the skin’s pH balance.

I think it’s a beautiful toner. It’s not drying and feels soothing on the skin. But, I don’t really use toners consistently, unless they’re acid toners. As you know, using an acid toner is my preferred form of exfoliation.

INGREDIENTS:

Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis) Leaf Juice, Water (Aqua), Saccharide Isomerate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Oat (Avena Sativa) Kernel Extract, Sclerotium Gum, Ethylhexylglycerin, Phenoxyethanol, Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate, Potassium Sorbate, Sorbic Acid

When Do I Use This?

I’ve used balancing toners in my morning and evening routine. Although, you’ll find me using this toner the most when I double cleanse with the other AbsoluteJOI products.

RANKING:

Skin Refining Night Oil with Retinol and Vitamins C+E

If you’re looking for an anti-aging product to help treat hyperpigmentation and boost radiance? Then look no further! This face oil has Vitamin C, which you know I love. And it also incorporates a granactive retinoid, which is a retinol product developed to tackle signs of aging without enduring any soreness or irritation.

This face oil was the first retinol face treatment I tried that didn’t give me any irritation. The formula is gentle and helps with long-term even skin tone and brightness, hyperpigmentation, and cell regeneration.

But, it’s not an overnight savior, so please give it some time to see skin changes. Give it 4-6 weeks before you re-evaluate your skin. Consistency is key.

INGREDIENTS:

Organic Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil*, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil**, Shea Butter Ethyl Esters, Organic Argania Spinosa (Argan) Kernal Oil*, Rosa Canina (Rose Hip) Fruit Oil**, C15-19 Alkane, Moringa Oleifera (Moringa) Seed Oil**, Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate (Vitamin C), Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil*, Dimethyl Isosorbide, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Beta-Sitosterol, Squalene

When Do I Use This?

I used this as the last step in my evening routine. And I use retinol treatments 2-3 a week, specifically on days I don’t exfoliate in my evening routine.

Where Can I Purchase This?

AbsoluteJOI is sold on their website, at BLK+GRN, and on Amazon. You can get 10% off your purchase using this link & the promo code “BEAUTYINCOLOR” on their site.

SIZE:

1.0 oz.

PRICE:

FAVORITES FROM THE BRAND

Skin Refining Night Oil with Retinol and Vitamins C+E

As you can probably tell, I’m a fan of the Skin Refining Night Oil with Retinol and Vitamins C+E. I think this is an excellent facial oil treatment. It’s gentle, effective, and feels good, which are three things I look for in most skincare products.

Sunflower & Moringa Fresh Cleanse Oil

You all know I’m a big believer in double cleansing in your evening routine. Absolute Joi’s Sunflower & Moringa Fresh Cleansing Oil has a wonderfully silky texture and easily removes all my eye makeup without tugging on my skin. 

As I said before, I enjoy oil cleansers with smooth, rich textures, and I like that this oil cleanser feels smooth and removes eye makeup with ease. This oil cleanser does all that and doesn’t leave any residue when you rinse it off.
