OSEA Seaweed Face and Body Care | Natural Skincare Review

Osea Seaweed Face Body Care Natural Skincare Review

It's no secret that I am a big fan of California-based and family owned and operated skincare line Osea. I first professed my love for the brand last year and have been enjoying discovering what other products they have to offer. Over the last few months, I have been trying out a handful of new-to-me products from the range. What makes this line so special you ask? Their founder's story, their mission and their use of high-quality ingredients are just some of the things that drew me to them, not to mention they are also vegan and cruelty-free. Organic seaweed is a key ingredient in their products, something I had never tried topically prior to coming across their brand and I was definitely missing out!

Osea Hyaluronic Sea Serum

The Hyaluronic Sea Serum* has been such a treat for my skin. I like to think of serums as a very potent moisture booster as they contain concentrated active ingredients that elevate the moisture retention of your skin, and when combined with a moisturizer, make it work that more effectively. This one has a gel-like texture (similar to aloe vera) without the stickiness factor. It contains hyaluronic acid (which can hold 1,000 times its own weight in water when absorbed into the skin) and is an ingredient I covet in new skincare products I try out ever since discovering its efficacy back in 2013. It has a very faint natural scent, so if you usually stay away from heavily scented products, this one is worth trying. Once absorbed, you can feel its tightening effect on the skin, which is great to smooth out tired looking skin while adding vibrancy to counter dullness. I find it also helps calm my facial redness.

Osea Advanced Protection Cream

The Advanced Protection Cream* is what I like to call my go-to heavy-duty facial moisturizer of the moment. You can feel how rich this cream is as soon as you dip your fingers into the jar. Since it is on the thicker side, I prefer using it at night to let all the goodness sink in, but you can also use it during the day. This gem is great if you have sensitive skin like me and is suitable for dry and mature skin. Apart from organic seaweed, it also contains extracts of grapeseed, avocado and macadamia oil as well as aloe vera, chamomile extract and lemon peel oil, just to name a few. Once again, the scent is very light and has a slight hint of citrus.

Osea Salts of the Earth Body Scrub

A body scrub is an essential part of my shower routine, and the Salts of the Earth Body Scrub* has quickly climbed to the top of my favourites list. The base is made of Himalayan pink salt, Bolivian rose, Utah desert, Dead Sea and Epson Salt. Extra-moisturizing ingredients include safflower seed oil, shea butter, passion fruit seed oil, rice bran oil and acai pulp oil, just to name a few. This luxurious exfoliator helps lift dead skin cells while leaving the skin feeling uber soft. I like using this prior to hair removal as it really helps you get an ultra-close shave. I also like that it does not leave a big mess behind in the shower as it is very easy to hose off. I love the scent as well, it's definitely very earthy!

Osea Anti-Aging Body Balm

To keep my skin smooth to the touch, I've been reaching for the Anti-Aging Body Balm*. This one has the strongest citrus scent of the bunch, with the lemon and grapefruit extracts really coming through, yet it is not overpowering which I really appreciate. The main ingredient is coconut oil and it contains various other plant extracts such as safflower, basil, rice bran, acai pulp, babassu and sunflower oil. Despite having so many oils, it does feel overly greasy and leaves my skin with a beautiful, non-sticky glow that lasts much longer than most other body moisturizers in my stash. I do wish it came in a bigger bottle since you need to use quite a few pumps to cover your entire body. If  you couldn't already tell, I'm seriously obsessed with this stuff!
