Vitamin B Active Moisture Cleansing Oil and Makeup Remover
This cleanser has gotten a lot of hype in the green beauty world and I can understand why! It deep cleans your skin and removes makeup like an oil, but add a little water and it emulsifies into a milky cleanser that rinses off easily. It also contains papain, a fruit enzyme, that gently exfoliates and softens the skin and has a yummy tropical (coconut-pineapple?) scent.
Morning Glory Brightening Complexion Booster
Hands down, my favorite of the four products, Morning Glory is an incredibly light serum that my skin just loves. Made with raspberry leaf, lemon balm and peppermint, it's high in anti-inflammatory ingredients and antioxidants that work to both tone the skin and reduce redness and puffiness. The serum is a cheery green color, smells fresh, and leaves my skin looking glowy, healthy, and visibly more radiant. It isn't near enough moisture for my skin by itself, but I've been enjoying mixing a couple drops with other face oils.
Vitamin E Active Moisture Eye Balm
The Vitamin E Eye Balm is a thick balm that smells like a mix of lavender and fennel. I loved it - both on my eyes and other dry patches on my face - during the insane cold spell (-40°C!) a few weeks ago, but I find it too heavy for everyday use since the weather has gotten somewhat warmer. I also started noticing milia under my eyes, but I've since switched to using it just a couple night a week and they've gone away. Alternating between the eye balm and another, much lighter eye cream has been working well.
Supercritical Chia Oil
I'm a little neutral on this one. Like the seeds themselves, chia oil is full of omega-3s, antioxidants and vitamins, but I haven't noticed any change in my skin since incorporating this single-ingredient oil into my routine. It is, of course, entirely possible that I just haven't used the oil long enough to see results. It's quite light, which is great in terms of absorption, but I have to mix it with heavier oils for my skin to feel sufficiently hydrated. I'll use up the sample, but it's unlikely I'll be buying the full size.
So, a bit of a mixed bag! I loved Morning Glory and the Vitamin B Cleanser, am a little mixed on the Vitamin E Eye Balm, and wasn't wowed by the Supercritical Chia Oil. That said, all of them were more than worth the $0.75 I paid from Fresh Faced! And, now that I've started, there are a couple other One Love Organics products I've got my eye on as well...
