I don’t go out of my way to find organic or natural products. To be honest, a lot of my experience has been with products that are very back-yardy and not good enough to justify me switching. I was intrigued however, by Osmia Organics, and more particularly, their Lip Lustre. Osmia Organics is lovely company that started with a soap making class, then grew to into love and a passion for skincare and ingredients that are good for you. Sarah Villafrano’s background in medicine and her dedication to finding the best and creating luxurious natural products make Osmia Organics a must-try for those of you who are concerned about what you put on your skin. And, for those of you who love luxe products that feel good on your skin and work well.
I was deep in my beauty blog reading rabbit hole awhile back and read a review on Lip Lustre. It was described as a secret weapon against chapped lips that has the added bonus of adding colour. It uses beet powder as colour, has a healing silky texture and the colour works on “everyone”. I had to try it, as I love to use cheater lip colour that is actually balm. The colour will work on all skin tones and just adds the perfect flush to your lips. Best part? It is my absolute favourite texture for a lip balm/gloss. Meaning soft silky and not super glossy or sticky. I don’t love lots of sticky shine on my lips, but prefer a smooth satin finish, and Osmia Organics Lip Lustre does exactly that.
Osmia Organics also has an actual official lip balm, their Honey-Myrrh Lip Repair, which is more of a heavy duty healing balm perfect for bed time. Honey is a known moisturizer and myrrh has benefits that include skin care uses, and has been used for centuries to maintain healthy skin, prevent skin aging and sooth chapped or cracked skin.
So these two Osmia Organics lip products work beautifully together – the Honey-Myrrh Lip Repair at night to heal and sooth, and the Lip Lustre during the day to make your lips look just kissed while protecting and nourishing them.
Osmia Organics Lip Lustre is $15 for a .3oz tube and the Honey-Myrrh Lip Repair is $22 for a .28oz jar.
