Hello Lovely Readers!
If you haven’t heard of One Love Organics (OLO), it’s about time you did. These organic skincare products are both highly functional and adorable! (I know, you’re not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but pretty packaging definitely adds to the allure).
I recently purchased two OLO products: the Skin Savior Waterless Beauty Balm and the Easy Does it Foaming Cleanser. Each product works amazingly well on its own, but they are even better as a dynamic duo in what OLO has coined the double cleansing method.
The Skin Savior is a multipurpose balm and can be used as a rich moisturizer (good for eczema), makeup base for loose mineral pigments, mask, and cleanser (which is my favourite use).
As you may know, I love cleansing with oil and this heavenly scented vanilla and citrus balm is such a treat to use! Made with cold-pressed oils (coconut and mango to name a few) it works to break up oil, dirt, and makeup that is hard to remove with a regular cleanser. To use, I massage the balm onto a dry face and spend a few minutes working it in (while enjoying the creamy texture and lovely scent). After, I remove it with a soft, dry microfiber cloth; leaving my skin feeling both clean and moisturized!
The real magic comes when you follow it up with the Easy Does it Foaming Cleanser.* This second ‘wash’ removes everything else that the balm did not pick up. I often find foaming washes are very drying, but luckily I didn’t have that problem with this soap free cleanser which, as the name would have you believe, foams quite well despite it being “soap free”.
*Note: I have used other gentle cleansers for my ‘second wash’ and they seem to work just as well, but a good gentle cleaner, like this one, is hard to come by.

An added bonus: both products come in travel size, which is what prompted me to purchase them in the first place. Next month I am going on a big trip to Asia and instead of bringing my whole cleansing arsenal with me, I have these perfect size OLO products to take and enjoy along the way!
The next OLO products to try are the Daily Body Serum in either lavender or neroli, and the Vitamin C active moisture serum. Both have received rave reviews and look extremely indulgent.

If you are in the U.S., One Love Organics products can be purchased directly on the website, but they currently do not ship outside of the country. There are many online stores selling OLO products (I bought mine from Clementine Fields), as well as boutiques. If you are in Toronto, check out Blossom Lounge in the Distillery district.
