OSMIA ORGANICS Lip Glosses: Luster, Whisper & Simmer

Osmia Organics Lip Gloss OSMIA ORGANICS Lip Glosses: Luster, Whisper & SimmerIt’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Osmia Organics (evidence: my Perfume Oil and Lip Repair & Body Oil reviews) . When the brand offered to send over their Lip Glosses for review, I was thrilled. My love of moisturizing, balm-with-color hybrids is well-documented on this blog.

OSMIA ORGANICS Perfume Oils

Osmia Organics Perfume Oil Review OSMIA ORGANICS Perfume OilsThe Osmia Organics Perfume Oils are unlike most fragrances on the market. As you might expect from an organic brand, these are all decidedly nature-inspired: earthy, woodsy, smokey, etc. They’re also literally nature-based – the components of each scent are made from nature itself (a fuller explanation of how they’re made by founder Sarah Villafranco, MD here). Because they’re natural, they don’t induce headaches like so many artificial fragrances do. While many of them are quite strong scents, there’s a “softness” to them. You can breathe them in effortlessly and they blend with the chemistry of your skin.

Lippy Girl Lip Gloss Balm Shimmer Lippy Girl Extra Virgin Lip Gloss, Lip Love, ShaZam Shimmer

Here at Buying Cruelty-Free, lip balm is a serious topic. If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you probably know that I’m always on the hunt for good ones. My lips are naturally dry and in the winter, the situation is abysmal. Cracking, peeling, bleeding – not to brag, but I get it all. As such, I was thrilled when Lippy Girl founder Darcey Diehl sent me three moisture-packed products: the Lip Love Lip Conditioning Stick, ShaZam Lip Shimmer, and the new Extra Virgin Lip Gloss.
