Review + GIVEAWAY | Simuolive Skincare ♥

Hey everyone! 


Skincare is no doubt an essential in our everyday beauty routine. To be honest, I've been pretty lazy all my life with my skin care and it usually consists of a cleanser, toner and moisturiser. When you've got a 9 am class and you have to leave the house by 7am to make it to class on time, ain't no body got time for layering skincare products. Similarly, with hair care, I've always just used whatever shampoo and conditioner at home no matter what brand since I feel like they're all the same anyway. 

However, I've recently been trying a variety of skincare and haircare products from a brand called SimuOlive I've been really liking the results of these products. SimuOlive originated in Auckland, New Zealand offering extensive skincare and hair care products on their online store. Their products all contain olive oil and it is no secret that olive oil has properties that can bring wonders to the skin and hair.

The benefits of Olive Leaf Extract includes: 
+ Providing moisture and firmess to the skin
+ Protecting skin against harmful effects of sunlight
+ Carries anti-fungal, anti-bacterial properties
+ Contains lots of natural antioxidants and vitamins 
...Just to name a few!! 



The SimuOlive online store offers two different ranges of products which both contain Olive leaf extract. 

1. The Olive Range - for everyone including baby products 
2. The Tebe Range - for men 

The prices of their products are affordable for natural organic products. Their skincare and haircare products are gentle so perfect for people with sensitive skin like myself! I was pretty overwhelmed by how many different products they sell and was pretty surprised that they even cater for babies with their baby bubble bath products and even baby gift baskets!!
However, I ended up choosing four products - Shampoo, Conditioner, Rosehip Oil and Lip balm. 


SimuOlive Hair Nourishing Shampoo and Hair Hydrating Conditioner 


My hair is pretty damaged from dyeing and straightening it all the time! So when I saw that they had haircare with Olive Oil in it, I was excited to try! 

The Olive Hair Nourishing Shampoo is a moisturising and hydrating shampoo for natural and salon treated hair. A gentle pH balanced, nutrient-rich blend containing extra virgin olive oil that will help to cleanse your hair and scalp of excessive oils and pollutants Restores moisture for softness and proteins for conditioning. It retails at $19.95 for 250mL of product. It comes in a pearl coloured bottle with a click lid. The consistency of the shampoo is kind of like a gel and foams easily with some water. This shampoo does everything that you would expect a shampoo to do - cleanse and gets rid of my oil hairy without leaving my hair feeling dry. 

The Olive Hair Hydrating Conditioner is a deep conditioning treatment to moisturise and hydrate natural and salon treated hair. pH balanced, nutrient-rich blend of natural plant extracts and extra virgin olive oil will restore softness, manageability and a healthy shine
  • Containing Aloe Vera, known for its healing anti-irritant properties. This retails at $19.95 as well but it only comes with 150mL of product which is quite little product for the price you pay. The product is a lot thicker than the shampoo and is more like a cream than a gel. One thing I LOVE about this product is that it smells SOOOO GOOOD!!!! After I washed my hair with this for the first time, I got complimented for the way my hair smelled!! I don't know if it's just me but there's just something that's really satisfying about having nice smelling hair... is it just me?? :P 
The conditioner isn't that moisturising but it does a decent job and leaves my hair pretty smooth and detangled. 

If I was to repurchase the products again, I would choose the conditioner over the shampoo because I think you can get a shampoo of similar quality for a cheaper price. But I think you're meant to use both products together along with their moisture renewal hair masque to get the best result. 


SimuOlive Rosehip Oil 




Ever since using the Banish Acne Vitamin C Serum, I've been curious about other types of facial oils. After readings Sheri's posts (from Behind The Frames) that is all about facial oils that have changed her skin dramatically, I really wanted to try one and eventually I came across this Olive leaf rosehip oil. This is my first time trying a rosehip oil and I've always been skeptical about putting oil on my skin since I'm aleady oily and acne prone. But I've heard that they bring lots of benefits to the skin including: 

                             + Anti-flammatory properties from the Vitamin E
                   + Repairs and regenerates skin tissues from the fatty acids
                            + Brightens complexion from the Vitamin C
                                           +  Improves skin texture


This oil comes in a 20mL glass bottle with a dropper dispenser and the product is organic as well as super gentle on the skin. As I mentioned before, this was my first time using rosehip oil so when i first opened the bottle and took out the dispense I was so shocked that the oil was a orangey yellow colour. It looked kind of weird and gross to apply to the skin but after searching online I realised that it's meant to be like that. I apply this once a day after i wash my face at night, placing 3 drops of the oil onto my finger tips and slowly massaging it wherever I have acne scars and hyperpigmentation. I've been using this for about a month and I've been seeing great results! I can tell that my acne scars have faded significantly which means that I don't need to apply as much foundation and concealer to cover my spots anymore! However, I don't like to apply this in the morning when I know I'm going to wear foundation because I feel like it makes my foundation slide off easier and makes me look  a bit shiny. It also has a strong nutty smell and if you can't tolerate strong smells then you probably won't want to use this product. Other than that, I've REALLY been loving this rosehip oil this month and I would repurchase this product again no doubt!!!! 


SimuOlive 100% Natural Lip Balm 



The last product that I tried from the Olive Range is this lip balm. It was really dry in Sydney a few weeks ago and my lips were super chapped and stripped from moisture. As you've seen in my previous post, the Maybelline Electropop lip balm has been my favourite go to lip balm recently but because that one gives a tint to the lips I felt like it's a waste to wear it at home and so i've been trialling this product hoping that it would give me the same result but without the colour. This product costs $8.95 so a bit pricey for a lip product. It comes with 10mL of product and in a squeezy tube. I'm not a big fan of these squeezy tubes because i prefer them in a windup tube form where I can directly apply the product onto my lips.

It claims to have antioxidants, softening and nourishing properties, protects the lips and is moisturising. When I first squeezed the product out, the consistency is really oily and a bit runny with a strong artificial chocolate scent. When I applied it onto my lips, my lips felt really oily but it didn't feel moisturising at all. I think the lip balm just sat on top of my lips but the nutrients weren't fully absorbed causing my lips to go back to its original dry and chapped state when the lip balm rubbed off. So I have to say this was probably my least favourite product in the line and most likely wouldn't purchase it again. 



So overall, I was quite happy with the SimuOlive products with my absolute favourite being the Rosehip oil!!! I think the Rosehip oil has brought amazing results to my skin and I've definitely gotten compliments from my friends about how great my skin has been looking recently, all thanks to this miracle scar healing product! The conditioner was also a favourite which carries an amazing scent making you smell amazing every time you finish washing your hair~ It also leaves hair feelings soft and detangled. The shampoo was an okay product, not something that I would be repurchasing over and over again. I think this bottle will last me for quite a while though. And lastly, the lip balm which I wasn't a very big fan of because i felt like it didn't moisturise my lips enough  but left me feeling oily and i couldn't stand the chocolately scent.
