I’m always on the hunt for amazing organic skin care products, you can imagine my excitement when I recently discovered Osmia Organics.
Founded by Sarah Villafranco, Osmia Organics mission is to bridge the gap between natural and luxury skin care by using only the best ingredients available to create their line of hand-made organic soaps, body oils, and uniquely fragrant natural perfumes. With all their products you can be certain you will never find any chemicals and synthetic fragrances. Their are always made fresh with the customers needs in mind. The company also uses only eco-conscious packaging in an effort to preserve and respect the environment.
Recently I had the opportunity to try two products in the skincare line and I couldn’t be happier with the results.
I’m really like using facial masks because they are great to use at least once week to exfoliate the skin and to unwind at the end of a long day. This particular mask is one of my favorites because of its unique ingredients, a little amount goes a very long way it also mixes, applies really easily and my skin feels amazing afterwards.
The mask contains organic protein-rich adzuki beans and quinoa in addition to containing essential oils. I have really sensitive skin that is prone to becoming easily irritated and breaks out. This mask soothes and gently exfoliates my skin leaving it soft and moisturized.
The first thing that I noticed is how great it smelled because of the powerful blend of essential oils it contains that are meant to combats bacteria and diminishes blemishes. Unlike a lot of natural spot treatments that contain tea tree oil this one does not, instead it contains oils like evening primrose oil which prevents over drying and heals the skin. Evening primrose oil has also has been shown to effectively treat hormonal acne.
The trick and what makes this product effective is to use it as soon as you first notice the breakout and apply it at least twice a day. Unlike most acne solutions, you don’t have to apply this serum to the whole face only the blemish and it does not strip the skin of its natural oil. My experience using this spot treatment has been really positive and I have seen results right away.
