We are in the dog days of summer right now, and I'm loving every minute of it! The warm days bring out the best in my mood and my skin is soaking up every little bit of that sunshine. As a designer in the fashion industry I spend my time planning and designing for several months ahead and sometimes I have to stop and remind myself of what month it actually is! Holding on to these sun-kissed days as long as I can.
My current vanity display is stocked with some seriously powerful skincare products right now. I'm pleased to bring you Osea Malibu, who not only has some of the most stunning packaging around, but also creates products that are vegan, cruelty-free, gluten-free and non-GMO. How's that for tough to hold a candle to? I've been using a few products from their line for a couple weeks now and I can't decide which one is a favorite! They're all that good.
Remember that glorious sunshine I was talking about? Well, let's just say their Sea Minerals Mis has been my best friend lately. I've been guilty of not applying as much sunscreen as I should, and their mineral mist is the perfect remedy for my troubles. This little spray is for blemish-prone skin types (holla!) and skin experiencing acute irritation and dehydration from sun exposure (yep, totally). It's got organic seaweed, Dead Sea Salt, and aloe vera to neutralize surface impurities and diminish the appearance of inflammation and redness on the surface of skin. I love that this bottle, like many of their other products, is glass. Better for the environment, and better for you. Guys, trust me, go and get this.
Finding a cleanser that can meet my laundry list of needs has been a tough go for me! I've tried everything. Most of the time I still end up going back to remove makeup with a wipe. Well not anymore! Osea's Ocean Cleanser is a multi-tasking mineral gel cleanser that keeps me hydrated and painlessly removes my makeup. Bonus points for the beautiful blend of lime, cypress, juniper, orange, and jasmine that smell incredible.
You guys know how much I love my oils and serums. They're the most recent addition to my skincare regimen, and one I'm wondering why I didn't start earlier. This Brightening Serum is my saving grace. The main goal is to even out skin tone and reduce any scars, both of which my skin could highly benefit from. Cystic acne as a teenager has left me with some pretty deep imperfections. It's lightweight and soaks into my skin in an instant, so I don't have to wait around to finish my routine. Dab a small dime-sized amount to your skin and spread lightly! If you massage your fingers will absorb the majority of it.
Last but certainly not least, I have been using the White Algae Mask. I'd say this mask and the serum are a one-two punch – the very best partners in crime. Twice a week I'll use it in the evening to brighten my skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. You can also use it overnight for an added boost!
Thank you so much, Osea Malibu, for saving my skin this summer, and beyond. There are so many other products from the line that I can't wait to try! These beautifully frosted glass bottles earn a gold star in my book.
