What’s on my nightstand?

Bedside Items

These are my favorite things for my little night time routine right before I turn off the light.
Osmia Vanilla Shea Hand Cream – I think it’s safe to say that there’s not anything that Osmia makes that I don’t like. This hand cream is great because it absorbs so quickly but leaves your hands super soft. Plus it smells delightfully of vanilla.
Badger Sleep Balm & Lotus Wei Quiet Mind – As an insomniac I find that good aromatherapy is one of the few things that will get my mind to slow the heck down.  These two are a recipe for a great night of sleep. A little balm, a little mist and I’m off to dreamland in no time.
Osmia Honey Myrrh Lip Repair – The current saving grace for my poor wind-chapped lips. I really need to learn to snuggle into my scarf better.

What’s your favorite product to apply before bed?

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
