Sometimes you try a clean beauty line and just know you’re going to love it for a long time and that was Osea Malibu for me. I first tried it several years ago and since then my use of the brand has only grown.
Osea Malibu Review
Osea is one of the original clean and vegan skincare lines. It was established back in 1996 and given its home of Malibu, California – the brand relies heavily on organic seaweed throughout the line. The entire line is intended to be inspired by elements of the ocean and I really like that the line is cruelty free and prioritizes eco-friendly formulations and packaging.
It was founded by Jenefer Palmer and it has grown into one of the best luxury skin and body care lines. And it’s certainly one of my personal favorites so today I am sharing a review of all the products of theirs that I have tried.
Best Osea Malibu Products
I had higher hopes for this one but I think I’ll stick with the Ocean Cleanser when I finish the bottle of this. It just doesn’t do as effective of a job as I want when I go to wash my face at the end of the day. I do love how gentle it is and how creamy the formula is but I am often required to do a second cleanse if I wore makeup that day when using this stuff.
This is a great HA serum for when your skin needs a drink. I’ve gone through multiple bottles and it’s one of my favorite hyaluronic acid serums. It always feels like giving my skin a big drink of water when I apply it.
My 30-something skin is always looking for serums that’ll help slow down the aging process. I like this serum because it has so many of my favorite actives such as Vitamin C, Niacinamide and Ceramides. Enriched with seaweed, this serum aims to deliver a brighter complexion, improve skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Better yet? It’s fragrance and essential oil free.
Sadly I had to discontinue use of this after I realized it had macadamia nut oil in it as I believe it’s what caused me to have skin irritation after a few uses of this. It is formulated for highly sensitive skin and I did find it incredibly comforting but then things took a turn so I stopped use as I have a mild nut allergy.
I’ve added this into my breakouts routine whenever my skin gets angry and it really is a wonderful moisturizer for when you have active blemishes.
It’s super sheer and fast-absorbing and features nutrient-rich seaweed and tea tree, juniper, and thyme essential oils that work to calm and clarify.
This is my favorite body oil. It’s gorgeous to apply, doesn’t get slick or sticky and soaks in right away. Especially great during winter! Pro tip: Put a few pumps into your bath, too! Probably my favorite Osea Malibu product. Skin feels so, so good after application.
The bottle will also last you a long time as a few pumps go a long way!
If you prefer more lotions than oils, this body balm is great. It sinks in right away and leaves no sticky residue. I love how soft and soothing the formula is.
This bestselling body scrub is so damn luxurious. It leaves your skin feeling so very soft and super hydrated. It feels like using a spa treatment at home.
This oil was such a lovely addition to my nighttime routine. It really helps melt away stress as you apply it to your vagus nerve along your neck. The vagus nerve activates the body’s relaxation response. If you suffer from anxiety and have trouble falling asleep, I highly recommend trying this oil.
“Flash Mask” is the right name for this as you definitely get instant gratification after use. Skin becomes visibly smoother and you get a glow right off the bat. This is a great mask to use before an event and before makeup. It is not intended for sensitive skin, however!
Love a clarifying mask like I do? This one will help blemished and congested skin thanks to the French red clay which draws out impurities and helps soak up any excess oil.
If you love AHAs like I do and want your skincare to really work for you overnight – this newer SKU from Osea is for you. Apply this serum at night and let it go to work to resurface and reinforces your skin’s moisture barrier. Skin is more glowy and smoother in the morning thanks to a blend of AHAs, phytic acid and tropical fruit extracts.
One product that didn’t do it for me? The Osea x Parachute Linen Mist. It barely smells like anything so I didn’t find it worth using. I wish it had more oomph to the fragrance so that linens really felt refreshed. Instead I would recommend The Laundress Linen Spray.
