Oh what a journey my skincare routine has been lately! Back in December I did a review of some lipstick from a line called Osmosis. You can read that review HERE. When I was doing my research on the product line I discovered some skincare products that I thought sounded very promising. I found a location in my area that uses the Osmosis Skincare products in their facials and scheduled an appointment. Just in case you are reading this and live in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and are looking for a wonderful facial, contact Skin by Naz. If you’re not in my area, then go to the Osmosis website and find a location near you that carries the line.
Osmosis Skincare was developed by Dr. Ben Johnson. He used a holistic skincare approach in creating the line. I’ve watched several of his videos and I’m trying to become more educated on making better choices in the products that I use. This includes products on the outside as well as on the inside. I find the line to be quite fascinating because there is so much science behind it that makes perfect sense to me.
Since entering the land of menopause a few months back my skin has changed. I’ve recently been fighting a little battle with adult acne. Dr. Johnson talks about the underlying causes of acne. In my case the acne seemed to be completely hormonal. As I continue to get my hormones in check, I’ve changed up my basic skincare routine. I’m using mostly Osmosis Pur Medical Skincare products. The line is quite extensive and is meant to treat skin conditions at the source.
Dr Johnson says “Here at Osmosis, we have found that our unique philosophy of natural exfoliation, liposomal delivery, immune system restoration, DNA repair, advanced collagen stimulation and skin nutrition enhancement dramatically affect the health and rejuvenation of the skin.”
For today’s post I’m going to focus on the cleansers that I’m using. I first started off using Purify, which is an enzyme cleanser. I used it both morning and evening. It’s a nice gel type of cleanser than doesn’t get all sudsy on the face. It has a wonderful mild fragrance that smells fresh and clean and slightly fruity. Key ingredients include Bromelain, Papain and Kiwi Kumquat Surfactant Blend. The 1.7 fluid ounce size retails for $21.
I recently switched to the Deep Clean cleanser. I felt like my skin has changed in the last few weeks to be a little drier and this one seems to make my skin feel better to me after rinsing. It was beginning to feel a little bit taut with the Purify. The Deep Clean is a detox cleanser. The key ingredient is Coconut Surfactants. It also feels like a liquid cleanser and doesn’t foam up. This cleanser also retails for $21 for the 1.7 ounce size.
Both cleansers remove my makeup at the end of the day along with all of the other environmental pollutants that my skin comes in contact with throughout the day. Very little product is needed with each cleansing, therefore the products are already lasting a long time for me. I recommend both of these cleansers and will continue to use them.
What do you think of the holistic skincare approach?
