Nourish Organic Eye Treatment

Processed with VSCOcam with c6 preset

I have been wanting one of these eye creams with the cooling applicator for AGES! Every one that seems to have launched is either majorly chocked full of nasties or has ingredients I’m allergic to.
Enter the Nourish Organic Eye Treatment*.
This was dropped off at my door a few weeks ago. You know before Michigan decided it was colder than Alaska. This sudden plunge into sub-artic air has not only my whole face feeling stripped of moisture but especially my eyes. The skin under the eyes is particularly delicate. Not moisturizing enough leaves you with dry crepey under eyes . Over moisturizing can lead to your concealer sliding around like butter in a hot pan. I’m loving this medium weight formula that is full of lovely hydrating ingredients. Avocado and Argan are at the top  of the list but it’s also got rosehip oil and cupaucu butter. The applicator that I was so excited about – it’s awesome! I love it especially in the morning. I find that it helps with reducing my puffiness in a nicer way than frozen spoons. All in all I think this is a great eye cream for winter.  Next, I would love to see them come out with something that packs a bigger anti-aging punch. These fine lines won’t erase themselves!

You can find Nourish Organic at many Whole Foods and online at NourishOrganic.com

Cleansing Done Right

Processed with VSCOcam with c4 preset

Sometimes, I hate cleansers. I try and try again but inevitably they always end up in a corner of my shower, ignored and lonely. They’re too rich, or too drying, or they smell funny. I never thought I’d find the right one.
(Feeling a bit Goldilocks with this…)
This winter though I stumbled on the best combination of products that make my skin feel glowing and hydrated. The paring up of the rich Boots Botanics Hot Cloth Cleansing Balm and the Osmia Organics Gentle Foaming Cleanser is a match made in heaven for me. Boots Cleansing Balm is chocked full of great oils including, olive, jojoba, and sweet almond. I use about a nickel size of the cleansing balm and massage it into my skin and then wipe it away with hot muslin or flannel cloth. On it’s own I like it but it can be a bit heavy on my skin. So I follow it up with a quick cleanse of the lovely OO Gentle Foaming cleanser. It’s a lovely thick gel that when massaged into damp skin creates a slight foam. I just rinse this off and then follow it with any products that I’m using. This nightly cleansing routine has kept my skin calm, hydrated and less prone to it’s normal winter freakout.

What’s your current favorite cleansing routine?

Osmia Organics Active Gel Nutrient Serum

I can’t believe I’ve not written a proper ode  post for this lovely gem! I jumped in and bought this several months ago after a skin flare up. Not really sure if it was PD or what but I was totally fed up with it. I read the post on PD by Sarah (Osmia’s founder) and a little light went off. I knew I needed this in my life.
The Active Gel Nutrient Serum is a lovely blend of Hyaluronic Acid, Aloe and White Tea. It’s incredibly soothing! It also has Niacinamide and Rice Proteins. So in a nutshell it’s a powerhouse of ingredients that not only soothe the skin but also help to support the hydration and structure of your skin!
My skin has been so much better since being introduced to this and it’s a mainstay in my P.M. routine. After cleansing I spray my skin with rosewater (or another toner) and then massage a nice layer of this all over. Typically I leave it at that but if I feel in need of a little something extra I’ll apply my One Love Organics Morning Glory.
I’m so grateful to have come across Osmia Organics products as they’ve made a huge difference for my skin.

You can find this product and other lovely ones on Osmia Organics site.
The Active Gel Nutrient Serum runs $55 USD
