I get giddy with excitement whenever I discover a new skincare and cosmetics brand. I recently found the best of both worlds when I was given the chance to review a few luxurious products from The Organic Skin Co. I am hooked!
The Organic Skin Co. is a new skincare and color cosmetics brand designed to change the way you think about beauty. They are luxurious, fun, and eco-responsible. Fiercely organic -- yet glamorous.
In New Zealand,
The Organic Skin Co. is already a Millennial favorite. For that dewy glow, they’re snapping up the Good Oil and Luminizer. They also adore their blush, even on lips and eyelids and love to create their own collections with The Organic Skin Co's customizable color pods.
This amazing company sent me three of their best selling products to try out. I received the best primer I have ever used, the most beautiful rosy color for my cheeks and lips, and one of the most gentle, yet effective exfoliation formulas ever!
After a long hot summer of UV exposure and record-breaking heat around the world, exfoliation is critical for healthy skin.
The Organic Skin Company's
NITTY GRITTY Almond Seed Exfoliant is a gentle scrub that lifts away surface dullness for fresh, polished skin. Here’s the green reveal: no plastic microbeads are used in the NITTY GRITTY formula. Microplastics are now recognized as a major pollutant of our oceans, and can literally carry absorbed toxins to your dinner plate (sushi, anyone?).
I use my NITTY GRITTY twice per week. I usually use it in the shower, and I apply it onto my face, neck and décolletage after cleansing. I massage it in a circular motion for about 3-5 minutes before rinsing. I am left with fresh, soft skin that is better able to absorb my skin care products, since that layer of dead skin is removed.
After quite a bit of trial and error over the years, I have learned the importance of using a good facial primer before applying foundation. The Organic Skin Co. has created the Primp-N- Prime primer, which creates the perfect base for a flawless face.
To achieve a great result, you need to prepare well. And that’s exactly what this primer helps you do. Lightweight, rich in antioxidants, restorative oils and revitalizing supercritical extracts, it will not only help your makeup go on smooth and stay that way, it will care for your skin too!
It seriously fills in and blurs any of my imperfections, and makes for an easy, smooth application of my foundation. It is available in two easy-to-apply shades, and this natural liquid primer contains moisturizing aloe vera, as well as supercritical extracts of pomegranate, honeysuckle and rosemary.
I believe that a little bit of the right shade of blush is the perfect finishing touch for every woman's makeup routine. Blush just adds a pop of color for a healthy glow, and it can make all of the difference in how we look. I prefer a pinkish shade in a dewey formula. The Organic Skin Co.has created the most heavenly blush I have ever used! Their Cheeky Lips gives me that beautiful glow that I desire.
My favorite shade is Spice. (Shown above.) I love how creamy it is, and how it blends perfectly onto the apples of my cheeks for a completely natural looking glow. Since my summer tan has long faded, Spice suits my skin tone to help brighten up my pale complexion. I also love to use it on my lips for a quick touch of color.
