I've worn a full face of makeup daily since the seventh grade and my routine has pretty much stayed the same. After moving to Texas, I really wanted to start focusing on my skin. It's so hot--it just feels better not to drip foundation.
By now I'm sure you have seen quite a bit on my skincare routine but I am so excited to have my skin where I've always hoped it would be. I very rarely break out (although--full disclosure, Spironolactone has also been a life saver).
I never thought I would comfortably share a picture of myself sans makeup on the internet but I have OSEA Malibu (and my consistency!) to thank.
I've dealt with pigmentation my entire life and recently started using the Vitamin C Probiotic. I mix some powder with water in my palm and scrub. I am no stranger to chemical exfoliants but I really love the grit of the polish. My skin feels clean and have noticed a difference in pigmentation after using for a few weeks (I only use the polish 1-2x per week).
I see the same questions every time I post about OSEA:
Do you really like the product?
Yes. It's almost all I use (I am still on a few prescriptions). I've tried a lot of skincare and keep coming back to OSEA. It has helped clear my skin and has never been irritating (I can be really sensitive sometimes).
I want to start with one thing--what would you recommend?
This is hard. OSEA's serums are all great. I love how quick they absorb; I've had trouble layering skincare or even sunscreen in the morning after trying a few other brands. The Brightening Serum is my favorite. I also love the Blemish Balm. My skin feels hydrated but never greasy.
If you're deciding on a mask, the Black Algae Flash Mask is my go-to. You only leave it on for 5 minutes and it helps clear breakouts.
