The one that is purely simple.

Meet Purely Simple Face Cream from Osmia Organics.  This is the first face cream I have used since transitioning to #greenbeauty products.  I actually received this product in the Beauty Heroes subscription box for January 2016.  Just in case y’all were wondering, the Beauty Heroes January box also included the Black Clay Facial Soap with a handy soap saver and a soon-to-be released Nectar Vital Rose Drops Face Serum.  To be very honest, I was skeptical about using this because my face has been really happy with the use of face serums/oils.  But now I’m so excited to have received it because my face responded well to it, thus it will be added to my lists of “to repurchase items” for my future reference.  🙂

I love this because it’s not like face creams I’ve used in the past, it’s by far superior.  I typically shy away from face creams because serums give my oily skin enough hydration as it is.  But this winter season, I definitely needed something extra.  I never really understood the statement “it just sinks into my face” until now, cause this Purely Simple Face Cream truly did.  I used this during the day and nightly and didn’t need very much to cover my face and neck.  The consistency is perfect, not runny at all but definitely not goopy either. No breakouts or irritations from using this, so that’s always a plus in my books.  And when I needed a lil extra face lovin, I added a couple of drops of serum to give an extra boost.

osmia_organics_purely_simple_face_cream_closeupThe Osmia Organics #girlboss is ER doctor, Dr. Sarah Villafranco.  She created a product and brand that focuses on truly natural skincare that is not only good for your skin but for your senses as well.  She did right!  At Osmia Organics, they take pride in product scent and its aromatherapeutic benefits, and I say that’s a double bonus!  For me, my utmost indicator for whether or not I’m happy with a skincare goodie is the effect it has on my face, but a close second is its aroma.  Well, the smell to me, initially, was mysterious because I couldn’t get a true pinpoint of what it smelled liked.  But after posting on Instagram, @osmiaorganics messaged me saying the “scent is organic rose Otto, chamomile, and neroli.”  Yum, there it is y’all.  Mystery solved (at least for me).

The Purely Simple Face Cream is geared to sensitive, reactive, and even normal skin types.  It contains pure and simple plant-sourced ingredients along with just a tiny amount of essential oils to give moisture with very minimal potential for adverse reaction or irritation.  This face cream consists of two stand out ingredients: organic aloe juice to help soothe irritation, and organic vegetable glycerin to help retain skin moisture.  I’m actually on the oily side but have occasional sensitive and reactive skin (in fact, my skin is unpredictable and has a mind of its own at times), and like I said, my face just soaks all this loveliness.

For reals, thank goodness Beauty Heroes and Osmia Organics collaborated together!!! This was my first Osmia Organics experience and definitely not my last!
