Product Review: Co-op One-Oh-Eight’s Facial Serums
Facial serums and oils are a nourishing and less heavy way to moisturize your skin. They absorb more deeply and leave your skin feeling soft and supple. Co-op One-Oh-Eight is a worker-owned cooperative, based in Massachusetts, that creates body oils and facial serums for every skin type.
Traditional beauty products can be loaded with toxins and chemicals, so it’s best to use the most natural products on your body and in your household. Co-op One-Oh-Eight’s serums are 100% plant based, preservative free, and pure. I tried the Regenerative Facial Serum and the Hydrating Facial Serum, both of which worked wonders on my skin. Applying the serums after washing your face or getting out of the shower is the most effective as your skin will be warm, clean, and ready to receive all the wonderful ingredients!
The Regenerative Facial Serum is good for all skin types and contains sweet almond, jojoba, argan, and carrot seed oils. The rosemary oil extract gives the serum a distinct scent, not too over-powering but decidedly earthy. The serum absorbed quickly and left my skin feeling smooth. The lightness of this serum makes it perfect for applying under makeup in the morning. The Hydrating Facial Serum, my favorite, is made for normal to dry and delicate skin types. It contains sweet almond, jojoba, pomegranate seed, and Vitamin E oils. Intended for deep moisture, this serum didn’t absorb as quickly so I used this one as a night time serum after washing my face. In the morning I awoke to hydrated skin without a heaviness that comes with deep moisturizing creams. The scent for this serum was also lighter and calming, perfect for bedtime!
I would highly recommend either of these serums if you’re looking for a face oil with tons of fantastic and nourishing ingredients, all of which are completely natural and preservative free. I love that this company is also a worker-owned cooperative, so you know that all of their products are made with a kind of care that can come from companies where everyone is truly invested in the outcome and product. As a wonderful bonus, Co-op One-Oh-Eight is offering a coupon code for Mother’s Day which is good for 20% off your entire shopping cart! Check out their website for details, more products, and info on being a worker-owned cooperative.
