Sample Saturday: One Love Organics

It’s Sample Saturday! The post is late again because I was dealing with credit card problems all Saturday, so now I can actually sit down and use what’s left of my weekend to blog about the new things I’ve tried this week.

I emailed One Love Organics to ask them if I could have some product samples and the CS representative recommended I check out their sampler pack. These mini kits are sold for just $3.95 with free shipping, so considering that most of their full-sized products are pricey I wouldn’t mind paying to try them first.

I was first introduced to One Love Organics through Beauty Sage sample boxes, if interested you can see the original blog post with the rest of the products I received here. Anyway, I liked the versatility of Skin Savior which can be used as a masque, cream, face wash or even to create your own BB cream, so I was curious to see what the rest of their products are like. None of the stores in my town carry OLO so asking for samples would have been my only choice. I also felt a close connection to the brand’s philosophy, it’s something I should really be working toward instead of collecting hundreds of skincare jars:

The sample pack included a week’s supply of the following products:

  • 1.5 ml sample of Easy Does It Foaming Cleanser
  • 4 ml sample of Brand New Day Microderma Scrub and Masque
  • 4 ml sample of Skin Savior Waterless Beauty Balm
  • 1.5 ml sample of Morning Glory Brightening Complexion Booster
  • 1.5 ml sample of Love Springs Eternal Youth Preservation Serum

Easy Does It Foaming Cleanser 
First of all, Easy Does It Foaming Cleanser is a finalist in this year’s Natural Health Magazine Beauty Awards in the facial cleanser category. The editors tested literally thousands of products before narrowing it down to the very best, so I had very high expectations for it and guess what? It totally lived up to them! This cleanser feels super gentle on the skin and at first I thought it wasn’t even doing anything, that’s how mild it felt. But my pores seemed very clean yet the skin wasn’t squeaking. I think I might have to splurge on this one because good cleansers are harder to come by than you think. I mean I thought I was satisfied with mine until I tried this one.

Brand New Day Microderma Scrub and Masque 
I’ve only used this scrub once this week but that’s how often I normally use scrubs. It’s very similar to the enzyme powders from TATCHA. You prepare a fresh mask each time by mixing the powder with milk, greek yogurt or water and put it on your face. It seemed gentle and non-abrasive, would make a nice exfoliator for people with sensitive skin.

Skin Savior Waterless Beauty Balm 
Last time I tried to use this balm as a BB cream and a tinted lip balm, this time I tried it as a cleanser and a moisturizer. I felt like it’s not very good of a cleanser but it’s doable if you really have nothing else. It made a really nice nighttime moisturizer, since it might look too greasy for the day. I personally had a few struggling moments trying to conceal the shine it gives to my skin, so even though it’s a really nice product I would be too conscious to have a shiny face all day.

Morning Glory Brightening Complexion Booster 
This serum pleasantly smells of freshly cut grass and other botanicals and that fresh scent contributed to my overall experience. I only needed a small dab  to cover my entire face. It definitely made my skin softer and it really just felt overall more comfortable throughout the day. I only used this serum in the mornings so I don’t know how it performs overnight.

Love Springs Eternal Youth Preservation Serum 
I used this serum overnight for a week and my skin is so much smoother now! It can be used on the eye area too, so that eliminates the need for eye creams and serums. And most of all, I feel like this serum really works. You get that feeling the very second you’re done applying it on your face – it just feels sooooo good! This will be another one of my future splurges.
