May the sun bring you new energy by day, may the moon softly restore you by night, may the rain wash away your worries, may the breeze blow new strength into your being, may you walk gently through the world and know its beauty all the days of your life.
This was the note I received with the delivery of my French skin care from sunny California, Odacité.
I immediately felt a sense of calm wash over me.
“There’s something special about these eco-luxe products,” I thought, “I can feel it.”
And I was right.
For those of you who follow me, you’ll know I’m very loyal to my existing skin care routine.
It takes special products for me to stick with a new regime for 3 weeks because results are chief.
You can give me the purest skin care, but if it doesn’t get results, I’ll shelf it immediately.
But all one must do, to know that Odacité is a cut above the rest, is to sniff these French skin care products.
They’re made in California, but their essence is French and the French, like the Swiss, are masters of skin care.
And wouldn’t you know it, Odacité’s founder is the lovely Valerie Grandury, a Parisian living in LA.
My skin care connoisseur nose was on point!
This gorgeous woman was diagnosed with breast cancer, which led to her quitting her job and seeking out a greener, non-toxic lifestyle.
Eventually, through her healing process, Odacité was born.
A pure and efficacious skin care brand, combining the performance of French skin care with the green ideals of California.
But their hand-selected, organic and wild-crafted ingredients aren’t limited to these two countries.
Odacité is made in California, but their fine ingredients are sourced all over the world and delivered fresh and active into their high-performing formulations.
Odacité products are also free from –
- Synthetic perfumes and dyes
And, of course, they’re also vegan, cruelty-free and 100% non-GMO.
So, how does my skin look and feel after 3 weeks of using Odacité?
Glowing, smooth, firm and nourished.
Here’s a breakdown of each product used and what I loved –
Mint + Green Tea Hydra-Purifying Treatment Mist
At 33, I need more moisture and am not as prone to breakouts as I once was.
Odacité have something for every skin type, so if you have more mature skin like I do, then opt for their anti-aging products.
Otherwise, if you’re younger and prone to breakouts, this mint and green tea toner will be perfect for you.
Still, I love the oil-free hydration this offers and how it makes my skin feel refreshed and plumped. Even though it’s formulated for oily skin, it wasn’t drying at all.
Key ingredients of aloe vera to soothe and hydrate, peppermint to calm and remove excess oil and green tea extract to provide a mega dose of antioxidant, makes this a facial mist your skin will love.
Tip: Make sure you press all the way down on the nozzle for each spritz, otherwise you’ll miss the top notes of mint. It took me a few days to figure this out, but it was much more effective once I did!
Overall, one of the best toners I’ve tried.
A unique blend of botanicals that creates a subtle and uplifting fragrance, a perfect way to start your skin care routine, refresh yourself on a long-haul flight or even set your makeup.
Wild Carrot Serum Concentrate: Vital Glow
I had no idea of the skin benefits of wild carrot seed extract and wouldn’t normally choose something with a vegetable fragrance, so this was a delightful surprise.
This is a truly rare and special oil blend.
This pure and potent Wild Carrot seed oil is hand pressed in a small French village and enhanced with Vitamin E oil, creating the purest and most effective serum to smooth and firm your skin.
It’s true! My skin feels smooth and firm since using this serum and I’ve grown to love it’s earthy, garden fresh fragrance.
The beta-carotene from the wild carrot extract has given my skin a lovely glow that I noticed from first use.
I used this Vital Glow serum so much that I’ve nearly run out!
I love adding a couple of drops to the Oleosomes Time Release Delivery Crème for a potent day cream mix that smells like a day spa facial or simply applying 3 drops directly onto my face and blending in for a perfect overnight serum treatment.
Seriously, my skin drank this and I’ve come to adore the daily ritual of using it.
Oleosomes Time Release Delivery Crème
Oleosomes, real energy storehouses found naturally in seeds, melt upon contact with the skin, steadily releasing their contents for ongoing delivery of actives and moisture.
Until I used this moisturiser, I had no idea what an oleosome was!
I believe that a skin care brand is only as good as the technology they use to deliver the plant ingredients to your skin and this is a perfect example.
I love that Odacité have found a way to harness the power of plants to provide the ultimate in moisture and protection to your skin.
This is the perfect crème if you’re looking for something lightweight with a subtle fragrance that still packs a punch in hydration.
Especially if you supercharge it with one of the Odacité serum concentrates.
This would also be perfect for sensitive skin because it’s gentle and nourishing.
Tip: It’s great on its own too, even without the serums, but does lack sun protection, so be sure to wear a foundation with SPF when wearing this crème during the day.
Overall, I loved the lightness of it and how it made my skin feel dewy and fresh.
The fragrance really does remind me of a day spa.
There’s no word to describe it except…pure.
For Australia, the Oleosomes Time Release Delivery Crème and Serum Concentrates are available at I Am Natural Store and The Lab Organics, but sadly not the facial mists, probably owing to the strict customs laws around shipping liquids to Australia.
Still, I highly recommend the crème and serums. Perfect for those who want to inject eco-chic French skin care into their routine.
