My skincare routine has been non-existent. Life happens, and with that, all sense of routine seems to slip through the cracks. The products I had were full of coconut oil and it seems to throw off my skin - and from what I've learned, it doesn't even absorb into our darn skin (coconut has not been a miracle in my routine). So as I began my quest for a fresh skin care routine, I noticed that most vegan skin care I came across (although cruelty-free) seemed to still be packing chemicals or other things I couldn't pronounce. Luckily, I found the gold at the end of the rainbow. After sifting through Instagram, I came across OSEA - a vegan skin care brand that made we want to pack up my life and live out on the beaches of Malibu. I was immediately curious. So, if you're like me, needing some extra TLC and wanting to be in tune with the environment at the same time, this may be a good place to start. I thought I'd share my honest thoughts and take you on my skincare journey.
Nature Lovers Must Know that OSEA is:
- Cruelty free
- Gluten free
- Petroleum free
- No Animal by-products
- No Parabens
- No Sulfates
- No Phthalates
- No Synthetic Fillers
All of their products are Plant-Derived vegan ingredients. Seaweed is front and center to Osea Malibu which I thoughts was a genius idea.
I was drawn to Sea Vitamin Boost - not only because of the eye capturing color, but also for it being packed with antioxidants and naturally moisturizing ingredients (madder root and pomegranate extract). They recommend putting it in the fridge to cool so that after a yoga class, you give yourself a magical spritz to lift your spirits. All of the sudden, you feel like a mermaid.
I'm still new to skincare, and I was happily met with a person online through the website who let me know they have a sample kit that was fairly priced for someone on a budget. So I opted for the normal to dry skin kit. Let me just say - everything smelled amazing, and I've been using the product for around four days. It's a couple days before my lady period, so hormones are raging. The products so far have helped ease my hormonal break outs which are very always so lovely. I've been very happy with Osea so far!
P.S.- I'm in no way affiliated with this brand I just happened to love sharing businesses with beautiful humans that are respecting mother nature and as well as our skin. Good things are meant to be shared. If you are interested in learning more about their products check out the link below
So, what I've learned navigating the skin care world is this: I want to be in tune with the world around me. Using products that are respectful of the environment and are transparent with their customers, and this is hard to find. I want to stress on here that I didn't purchase these products out of feeling like I needed to perfect myself or look younger at age 24. I find that I'm in a place in life that I need to respect my body more and nurture this one vessel I have the best I can. May this inspire to give yourself the extra love you deserve, not just in your skin care routine, but in your everyday life, because honestly - who doesn't want to feel like a magical mermaid?
