So we talked about one of my new natural beauty faves last month, Lip Luster from Osmia. Well I’ve added another of their fabulous products to my new beauties for the new year list…and it’s the best face serum yet!
Osmia Facial Restoration Serum. Oh. My. Goodness. This stuff is so good at its job. And what, exactly, is that? Making the skin soft, smooth, and youthful looking.
So I started using this serum at night last month, right after Osmia sent me out some samples. I liked how my skin still felt supple and hydrated even when I woke up the next morning. Not a small feat for someone with dry skin type in the Midwest winter.
Then I also began using it in the mornings, after I workout and wash my face. One evening I glanced in the mirror and noticed how dewy and alive my complexion looked. It certainly was not due to the excess sugar, later nights, or extra caffeine of holiday break. Nope this was all Osmia’s doing.
Here is how I use this ever lovin’ product: After cleansing apply your usual moisturizer, then pat a tiny amount of the serum into skin. This oil combo is very hydrating and you seriously only need a bit. Like, I’m talking half a pump here.
Why on top of your moisturizer? Isn’t a serum usually applied before moisturizer?
Often, yes. But oils are different. Gel type serums are best patted onto clean skin, pre moisturizer. But facial oils are a different deal. As my friend Ellen Holder, creator of B-leaf Botanics, told me – Oils don’t moisturize, they hold moisture in. So….if you apply the oil post moisturizer, it will help to keep the hydrating benefits sealed into skin. This works with body moisturizer/body oil too.
Ok, this post got kind of long. The gist is, I don’t want to be without this product. Try it and see what the big deal is all about.
