Skin type: ALL
How to use: JooMo® should always be used ON ITS OWN for a minimum of 14 days (as your skin takes time to return to its natural state). Stop using all other facial products, (especially moisturisers, creams, cleansers and soap) and medical products such as steroidal creams. *Taken from site.

How does it smell? I had been thinking about this for ages because the scent is SO distinct and I couldn’t figure it out. Then I reviewed the ingredients and it CINAMMON! Almost like aniseed which is a smell that is for specific tastes but I have to say I enjoy it because it’s one that alleviates headaches.
How does it feel? Un-mistakenly gel that washes away delicately and easily.
How long did I test for? At least 2 months
What I liked? What I really like is how easy it is to use and the fact that it doesn’t leave my skin dry which can be such a common problem for people with dry/combination skin. Secondly, I really like the brand because it’s simple and delivers exactly what you think it would.
It has a lot of claims such as;
“Prevents Inflammation and Irritation by allowing ‘GOOD’ SKIN BACTERIA to thrive.”
“Encourages your skin’s NATURAL BIODIVERSITY & helps your skin to HEAL ITSELF.”
“World’s FIRST EVER 100% TRULY NATURAL & PRESERVATIVE FREE.”
I like to think all these things are true but it would be hard to tell without a microscope, I can’t say it made my skin bad and definitely played a helping hand when I had breakouts/was terribly stressed.
I stuck to just using JooMo as was mentioned in the directions. I think this is mainly to do with the technology they are using ‘SKIN BACTERIA (MIRR)’. Because it is all about developing/maintaining the skin’s natural flora or good bacteria. This is something new to me and I would like to read more on it and how it effects the skin, there has been much talk about good bacteria and its maintenance inside the body but I never thought about it in skincare.
What I disliked? I think my major foible with it is that I think it would be the most beneficial for acne prone skin and because I don’t have that it wasn’t as evident to me it’s full capabilities. It would be interesting to see this on someone who has more problematic skin than me.
Would I buy again? Yes, I would, for me and for my nieces (ideally when they are in their teens). I think the way its packaged and the simplicity of the range and the product is good for someone who is just getting into skincare.
