Since switching over to completely natural and non-toxic makeup and skincare products I have had a hard time finding a really great face cream. I used to use Cetaphil to moisturize my face until I realized that it was chock full of nasty and harmful ingredients. I have normal to dry skin but in the colder months my skin switches over to more dry and I struggle with itching and dryness, especially after showering.
I was so happy to try this purely simple face cream from Osmia Organics as it is no secret how much of a fan I am of Sarah Villafranco, owner and creator of Osmia Organics and her impeccable products. I swear by Sarah’s products and I use her active gel nutrient serum, rose clay facial soap, body oil and honey-myrrh lip repair daily and nightly and cannot be without them, and now I cannot be without this face cream!
What It Is: This cream, designed for reactive skin, contains simple, pure, plant-sourced ingredients and tiny amounts of the most precious essential oils, to give moisture with very low potential for irritation or adverse reaction. Rice protein helps support the skin’s collagen structure, and aloe juice soothes irritation. This cream has a fairly low percentage of oil-based ingredients, which is why I recommend Purely Simple Face Cream for perioral dermatitis; (use sparingly over areas of dermatitis).
For: Sensitive, reactive, and normal skin.
How To Use: Apply to clean skin 1-2 times daily.
Ingredients: aloe barbadensis leaf juice*, prunus amygdalus (sweet almond) oil*, prunus armeniaca (apricot kernel) oil*, radish root/arundinaria gigantea ferment filtrate, glyceryl stearate, cetearyl glucoside, cetearyl alcohol, vegetable glycerin*, hydrolyzed rice protein, simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) oil*, ricinus communis (castor) oil*, GMO-free vitamin E oil, proprietary blend of essential oils*

My Thoughts: This is my absolute favorite face cream I have used in a very long time. I only need a pump of this to cover my entire face. It melts into my skin like butter and lasts all day and night. Although I don’t wear much foundation I find that for me personally it wears very well underneath makeup. When you first apply this cream it feels a little thick and you can see a white residue but once you massage it into your skin it completely absorbs and leaves absolutely no residue left over and does not feel even slightly heavy on the skin at all. Although this face cream was designed for very sensitive skin, it works with absolutely all skin types. It has enough oil-based ingredients to help dry skin but it also has a perfect balance of oil and aloe that it would be great for oily skin as well! I am so happy to add this to my skin regime and this will absolutely be a staple of mine for the winter months!
