Hello lovely fall pumpkins!
I know saying, “I cannot believe it is October already!” is cliche. I also know that saying it is cliche, is cliche. But for real, hello fall? It happened so fast. Here in Portland, the summer went by way too quickly and was FAR too mild for my liking. We’ve already got weeks of rain ahead of us in the forecast and David plugged in our gas fireplace the other day so here we go! I guess it’s time for fall.
In light of this change in season and subsequent change in weather – my skin care needs are ever evolving. I tend to need heavier, thicker creams and hydrating products for the fall and winter because for me, moisture is everything! Enter: The Organic Skin Co.
The Organic Skin Co. sent me a sampling of skincare and beauty products to try out so let’s get to it, shall we?!
Here we have:
- Clean Slate Holy Basil Cleanser
- Task Force Nine Calendula and Tumeric Cream
- All About the Gloss Lipgloss in Mist
- In the Spotlight Luminzer in Lunar
- Daily Rituals Rosehip and Orange Moisturizer
- Prep’n’Prime Face Primer in Rose Gold
This is a nice overall cleanser that does a great job of removing makeup, yet staying lightweight. It left my skin feeling soft and clean.
I really like the scent of this yellow-tinged lotion. I would say the consistency is well-balanced, not too heavy or too lightweight. It is very soothing and would probably feel great on sensitive or sun-burned skin. I have been using this as a daytime moisturizer underneath primer.
What a beautiful color for fall! At first I was not sure I would like the color on me but it totally works (even with no makeup on!). This gloss is comfortable to wear, does not have a gross “taste” and wears lovely on the lips.
This cream luminizer is very subtle and somewhat of a challenge to apply. Once blended in, the glow is soft and natural. Not what I usually grab for, but a nice change of pace nonetheless.
This moisturizer is no joke. It is a thick, yellow-tinged cream and the moisture it provides is very nice. I would not recommend this stuff under makeup unless you are in some serious need of hydration. I have been using this as a night cream and really liking it so far.
It should also be noted that all these products are not only organic, but also Cruelty Free and Vegan.
Overall I have really enjoyed playing with and using these products from The Organic Skin Co. The skincare and makeup items seem to work together harmoniously and I like that they keep the line really simple. It is always refreshing to see a brand being so ethical, making products that keep the planet top-of-mind. Using these products just make me feel good!
Special thanks to The Organic Skin Co for sending me these products.
