The one beauty without secrets.

Meet Body Butter, Face Cream, and Exfoliating Manuka Mask from OY-L Skincare.  This was another brand I was introduced to at the Indie Beauty Expo in NYC this past August.  I mentioned them in My Top 10 Indie Beauty Expo Get To Know List post—as a mom on a mission to provide an all-natural skincare line “to fight toxins, protect families, and empower beauty.”  Founder, Andrea Pierce-Naymon was like most women (including myself) who used drugstore, department store, and luxury conventional skincare and beauty products.  However, all that changed when her daughter sudden became ill.  Andrea realized that their daily beauty products contained toxic ingredients, and from there she set on a journey and mission to create a 100% natural luxury skin care line.  🙂

I couldn’t be more appreciative and glad to have stumbled upon OY-L Skincare at the expo.  Andrea was so informative and kind, and y’all, I could really see and feel her passion behind her brand and products.  🙂  She was so generous to have let me check out the Body Butter, Face Cream, and Exfoliating Manuka Mask, and now I can share with y’all my personal experiences after using each of these three goodies.  🙂

oy-l_skincare_body_butterLet’s begin with the Body Butter.  I received the Lavender scented one, but they also have it in Pink Grapefruit, Litsea Basil, Tiare Lime, and even Unscented.  According to OY-L Skincare, the body butters are “ultra-hydrating and rich with natural nourishing ingredients.”  I was taken aback by this body butter cause of it whipped texture, which was a new experience for me.  Oh, did I love it.  As soon as the temperature started to cool down, I grabbed this butter for that extra hydration.  I initially used this on dry skin, and it was nice.  However, it’s even better when applied to damp skin, like right after the shower.  It absorbs onto my skin much nicer.  🙂  And that lavender scent, it’s so calming.  I particularly love using this right before bed and adding extra care to feet (then slipping on socks for an overnight pedi-softness).  🙂  Surprisingly, I finished this rather quickly, it goes to show how much I loved and enjoyed it.

oy-l_skincare_face_creamUp next is the Face Cream.  OY-L Skincare uses a blend of ingredients to help restore, heal, detoxify, and renew the skin.  Again, I reached for this face cream the moment the weather turned dry.  🙂  I knew I needed something more than my current face serum.  This face cream also had a slightly whipped texture.  I was afraid that it would be too heavy for my skintype as the body butter was, but I was wrong.  A little goes a long way with this one, so I didn’t need very much to cover my face.  This, too, had lavender scent, as it should cause of its properties to heal, restore, and slows signs of aging (just to name a few).  I enjoyed using this and had no “bad” reactions, and by bad, I mean no breakouts or irritations.  🙂

oy-l_skincare_exfoliating_manuka_maskLastly, the Exfoliating Manuka Mask.  OY-L Skincare uses a base of manuka honey for their manuka mask.  It is then incorporated with exfoliating agents and natural fragrances to create this “addictive” mask.  This one is my most favorite of all three of these goodies.  🙂  Y’all know me, I love a good mask.  And this one right here is a good one fosho!  🙂  It’s a sticky thick mask, so I like to apply it on a damp, already cleansed face.  Then I go about my business while I let it do its thing.  Instructions say to leave on for 20 minutes, but sometimes I leave it on longer (hey, I get too caught up on what’s going on around me and forget to rinse off), which is fine cause this mask does not dry.  🙂  This stuff leaves my skin feeling soft, hydrated, and glowing.  I can definitely understand why it’s so “addictive.”

I thoroughly enjoyed experiencing a portion of the luxurious OY-L Skincare line.  They’ve got an array of other goodies aside from the Body Butter, Face Cream, and Exfoliating Manuka Mask, so please check them out.  🙂
