Sand Sea & Skincare: My Osea Malibu Favorites
A skincare line so soothing, it will pick you up and drop you off right on the beach.
Many of you who have been following me for a little while now may know that I have switched almost all of my skincare products to Osea. After the first month of using their product, I could not rave enough about it. The all natural products are so incredibly delicate and soothing on my skin I was instantly impressed. They're committed to using non-toxic ingredients and packaging. On top of that, all products are vegan, cruelty-free, gluten-free and non-GMO (amazing right?!)
Their proprietary seaweed trio is USDA certified organic and is sourced from the pristine waters
of Patagonia, and acts as the base for the majority of their formulations. Learn more about my skin care routine below!
My Skincare Arsenal
Step 1 : Makeup Remover
To Start off my routine I will take any makeup I am wearing off with a cotton pad and a few dabs of the algae oil. In the past I used coconut oil but felt that it left my skin feeling super greasy. I love that the algae oil moisturizes and soothes my skin without feeling greasy. Side note: I have realized my makeup comes off so much better with oil versus cleansing towels.
Step 2 : Cleanser
I have tried both the Ocean Cleanser and the Ocean Cleanser Milk and love them both equally. I am now on to my second bottle of the Ocean Cleanser, but will say if you have more sensitive skin the Ocean Cleanser Milk will be a better option for you! Both are pretty delicate formulas and will leave your face feeling soft after a wash.
Step 3 : Exfoliating & Blemishes
I was introduced to a few new products and have rounded up a top three for exfoliating and problem areas. These have quickly become key players in my skin routine and will be repurchasing immediately (they are THAT good). First lets talk exfoliating.. I have been introduced to the probiotic polish and it has changed my life. I will warn you this is an INTENSE exfoliant, like I was definitely not expecting it to be that intense but powered through and once I rinsed my face felt like I had removed 10 layers of dead skin- tell me that is not an incredible feeling.
The Bio: This potent powdered exfoliant instantly brightens as it polishes to reveal luminous, vibrant skin. Our unique formulation is the first to combine pure Vitamin C with vegan Probiotics. Reduces the look of hyperpigmentation, smoothes & visibly brightens your complexion. Fermented Pomegranate enzymes gently remove surface build-up. Finely ground organic Bamboo and Rice powders infused with mineral-rich Seaweeds work to delicately buff away dull skin. Our ultra-potent, preservative-free formula is kept fresh until activated with water, transforming it into a creamy paste for a youthful, luminous glow.
My next favorite is the essential corrective complex. Now this is a treasure let me tell you. I am someone who dealt with acne later in life (I started to experience severe breakouts at 23 and beginning of 24) I have finally found a healthy balance in my diet, skincare, and fitness routines where my skin can be healthy and happy.That being said I will still get that lone pimple that just loves to pop up once a month- indescretlety I will add. When I would feel a little friend start to form I started adding this spot treatment on as my last step and could see a difference overnight! This is my freaking life changer. This active blend of botanical and essential oils targets blemishes by removing surface impurities for a balanced complexion. Tea Tree (the best essential oil for spot treatment), White Thyme and Juniper help to minimize the appearance of pores, breakouts and oily shine. A spot solution or all-over treatment for a clarified look.
Lastly... the Advanced Protection Cream. This is the softest, creamiest moisturizer I have ever used and cannot get enough of it! If you are going to splurge on a skin care item I highly recommend it s this one. With its rich Organic Seaweed and botanical anti-aging moisturizer deeply hydrates and firms skin. DPHP, an amino acid compound visibly evens skin tone and reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation. Luscious Grapeseed, Jojoba and Avocado oils minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for a plump, renewed complexion.
