When it comes to skincare, my routine goes a little something like this. A few ride-or-die mainstays (this and this and this – please pop over here for discount codes!), a few items that I’m usually trying out or reviewing, my masks/treatments, and then my topical problem solvers.
My “problem solvers” are not items I use every day per se, but only when I need them. Up until a few days ago, I realized that many of these problem solvers were all the same brand and that I never told you about them, howisthatevenpossibleIdon’tevenknow. Well, the time has come!
The Pure Elements bottles by Odacité pack a punch. They are super-concentrated so you only need 1-2 drops, and they get right down to business. Got a specific concern? These products are for you. I use them two ways – either dropped into my moisturizer or straight on my face before putting on my moisturizer. I feel like the latter option is more potent.
Made in California with French savoir-faire, Odacité marries the best of two worlds: result-driven French skincare and the green California revolution. Efficacy plus purity. Odacité never uses any fillers, parabens, nanoparticles, petrochemicals, PEG, synthetic perfumes, dyes, or Phenoxyethanol. Also, they never test on animals. This brand is legitimately clean, friends.
Here are some of my personal favorites.
CaR Vital Glow – My ultimate favorite, and not shown above because I’m out. (NEED A NEW ONE STAT.) This wild carrot serum concentrate is the ultimate in achieving smooth, firm skin. This oil is hand-pressed in a small French village, and I’m obsessed. I especially like it around my eye area and on my chest. (My chest is definitely the most sun-damaged area of my body and is always acting like a pissy teenager. SO ANGRY WTF QUIT WITH THE OVERREACTING, CHEST.)
PA + G Hyperpigmentation – Two words. Sunspot eraser. (Is sunspot one or two words or even a word?) I put this oil directly on my pigmented spots on my face and can tell a huge difference when I keep up with it.
GT + L Radiance Effect – Honestly, I love this one for the scent. Lemongrass is so delightful. When I’m feeling particularly lackluster, I put a few drops of this in my moisturizer.
BL + C Pimples – This is *the* pimple formulation. I have a few others, but this one seems to work the best. Black cumin oil and Cajeput penetrate deeeeeeply into the pore and get rid of bacteria. I definitely would not put this all over your face, as it is very potent. I just dab it on my blemishes directly.
JO + L Clogged Pores – If you are dealing with blemishes all over, I would recommend this one, as it’s excellent at flushing out pores, but gentle enough for me to apply all over my face. Also, if you like lavender, you will enjoy the scent of this one.
Do you have another skin concern? Chances are there is a little bottle waiting for you. You can check all of them out here. (And while you’re there, don’t forget about Petit Vour’s monthly beauty box for $18/month. A Petit Vour delivery always makes for a great day around these parts!)
As always, let me know if you have any questions!
