Love for One Love Organics Part II

If you’ve read my blog before, you know I fell in love with One Love Organics after trying the Vitamin B Enzyme Cleansing Oil (you can read about it here). So on Black Friday, when OLO offered an incredible 25% off I splurged…seriously splurged. Now, two months later, I’m ready to share my thoughts… 

Skin Dew, 2.1 oz., $58 

Balms and moisturizers are a dime a dozen in the green beauty industry. What makes the brand new Skin Dew stand apart is its light weight texture that quickly absorbs into the skin without sacrificing hydration. Plus it’s practically fragrance-free, making it useable by all skin types. How? Over 50% of the Skin Dew is crafted from pure, mineral rich Coconut Water. OLO describes Coconut Water as a,

“liquid miracle worker, which is packed with benefits, including: Antioxidants, amino acids, enzymes, minerals, phyto-nutrients, and more”

But this coconut water cream doesn’t stop there. It’s jam packed with cupuacu butter, Kalahari melon oil, sea algae, and vitamin E. This intensely moisturizing but light weight moisturizer is loaded with antioxidants and skin healing ingredients that combat dryness to leave you with healthy looking skin.

My skin tends to lean on the dryer side during the winter months, and oilier in the summer months. So for now, morning use is perfect. To no surprise the Skin Dew acts as wonderful base under my makeup, and layers perfectly with a primer. Plus, the practically fragrance-free scent makes it ideal for women and men (boyfriend tested & approved 👍).

Here’s the ingredient list:

Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Fruit Juice*, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil*, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Cetearyl Alcohol, Jojoba Esters, Theobroma Grandiflorum Seed Butter*, Propanediol, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Wax, Xylitylglucoside, Cetearyl Glucoside, Citrullus Vulgaris (Watermelon) Seed Oil, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Pulp Extract*, Lactic Acid, Alaria Esculenta Extract, Acacia Decurrens Flower Wax, Tocopherol, Sclerotium Gum, Xylitol, Polyglycerin-3, Glyceryl Undecylenate, Glyceryl Caprylate, Anhydroxylitol May Contain: Maltodextrin

Skin Savior, 1.8 oz., $49

It’s a cleanser! It’s a balm! It’s foundation mixer – no it’s a multi-tasking wonder balm! If you’re looking for a one-stop shop product to simplify your beauty regiment, then please please please try the Skin Savior. Perfect for those with combination/dry skin, she truly shines when your faced with intense dryness to hydrate, and soothe the skin (like I did for after having a bad reaction to a different product I was testing). The mix of organic coconut oil, mango butter, jojoba and chia are full of antioxidants that are not only deeply hydrating, they prevent inflammation and wrinkles to keep your skin soft, supple and smooth. Even though this balm can be used AM & PM, I prefer to let her work her magic while I sleep.

So let’s talk cleansing. The Skin Savior is the first cleansing balm I’ve ever used and let me tell you… it may take some getting used too at first. I warm a small amount (but more than a pea sized) in the palms of my hands, and gently massage into my skin. I very carefully rub over my eyebrows and eyes to start to lift away eye makeup. To preserve my thin eyelashes, I use small upward strokes starting at the base of my eyelashes. Like many balms, a warm cloth or cleansing sponge is needed to remove any left over residue. But afterwards, your skin will glow.

Now if you’re really into only using one product, the Skin Savior also works as an intense, nourishing lip treatment, eye balm, body balm and cuticle treatment. I keep a trial size at work 😁

Here is the full ingredient list:
cocos nucifera (virgin coconut) oil*, glycine soja (sweet soy) seed oil*, cera alba (beeswax)*, simmondsia chinesis (jojoba) seed oil*, jojoba esters, citrus aurantium dulcis (orange) peel wax, mangifera indica (mango) seed butter*, salvia hispanica (chia) seed extract (and) rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf extract*, avena sativa (oat kernel oil), limnanthes alba (meadowfoam) seed oil, tocopherol, vanilla planifolia fruit extract*

Vitamin E Eye Balm, 0.65 oz., $49

Who knew I needed an eye balm, an eye cream yes, but a balm? A true, thick balm? Apparently Elizabeth Dehn & One Love Organics knew when they created the Vitamin E Eye Balm. At 26 years old, I don’t have crows feet or fine lines, but I do suffer from puffy under eyes. This luxurious, ultra rich, waterless balm helps to relieve my tired eyes, gently plump, hydrate and lift the under eye skin. And I mean seriously hydrates. Made with a powerful blend of organic Shea butter, sunflower seed oil, Vitamin E, pomegranate, ginseng, licorice, lavender and fennel, it’s perfect for these harsh New England winters. Best applied with your ring finger, your spirits will be calmed with the soft scent of lavender & fennel. I prefer to use the eye balm at night as I find during the day it’s a little too heavy under concealer, however a lot of people use this day &a night. But remember, this is a balm, not your usual mousse-y eye cream. You only need the smallest amount, otherwise you may end up with overly greasy under eyes.

Here is the full ingredient list:
butyrospermum parkii (shea) butter*, jojoba esters (and) tocopherol, helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil*, punica granatum (pomegranate) sterols, adansonia digitata (baobab) oil*, aspalathus linearis (rooibos) extract*, centella asiatica (gotu kola) extract*, euphrasia officinalis (eyebright) extract*, caprylic/capric triglyceride (and) alaria esculenta (kelp) extract, lavandula angustifolia (lavender) essential oil*, foeniculum vulgare (fennel) essential oil*

Gardenia + Tea Antioxidant Body Serum, 4 oz, $39

If you’re anything like me, you may be a slightly forgetful when it comes to body care. But recently, I’ve needed to amp up my game. That’s where Gardenia + Tea Antioxidant Body Serum steps in.  Slightly thinner than an oil, this serum quickly absorbs into the skin. What I love most (besides the serum itself) is the design. Housed in a dark, plastic spray top bottle I can leave it in my shower and quickly spray, spray, spray before I step out of the shower and completely forget to slather a body serum/oil on.

At first I thought if I applied the serum immediately after showering, I would wipe everything away the moment I dry off, so I was applying to dry skin. Although still moisturizing, the serum does its best when applied immediately apres shower to lock in moisture. Seriously, don’t worry about wiping off after using Gardenia + Tea – your body already drank it all up. There is a floral scent… that reminds me more of tanning lotion, but I don’t care. I love how soft my skin is and how easy to use this is. There’s even a small on/off switch to prevent the sprayer from leaking. Talk about travel-easy 😱

Now let’s talk ingredients. Pumpkin seed oil is a natural source of salicylic acid to softly exfoliate and smooth the appearance of skin. Supercritical Seal Buckthorn Oil contains the highly beneficial Omega-7 that helps to nourish & condition the skin, and Antileukine 6 is an antioxidant rich sea botanical that protects against free-radical damage, smooths, firms and prevents dryness.

Here is the full ingredient list:
capric/caprylic triglyceride, helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil*, camellia sinensis (green tea) seed oil*, cucurbita pepo (pumpkin) seed oil*, fragrance/parfum*, laminaria ochroleuca (kelp) extract, hippophae rhamnoides (sea buckthorn) oil*, salvia hispanica (chia) seed extract* (and) rosmarinus ocinalis (rosemary) leaf extract*, calendula ocinalis flower extract*, aspalathus linearis (rooibos tea) extract*, limnanthes alba (meadowfoam) seed oil
You can purchase the Skin Dew and all other OLO products directly from One Love Organics. You can also get everything (minus the Skin Dew) at a personal favorite, The Detox Market.

See any products you’ve tried and loved?  How do you feel about using a balm as an eye treatment?
