If there’s one thing I’ve become more serious about this year, it’s been trying new products to make my skin the best it can be. A few weeks ago, a New Zealand-based skincare line approached me to review a couple of their products and host a giveaway. I’ve since tested two of their products over the past eight weeks. Here are my thoughts:
Obiqo Gentle Face Wash With Marine Extracts: a refreshing daily cleanser that has been enriched with New Zealand sea kelp, free-radical destroying sea lavender and natural extracts of soothing camomile and cooling cucumber. Nourishing aloe vera provides rich moisture, while the delicate scent is luxurious and indulgent.
This face wash is perfect for any skin type; it’s really gentle and nourishing, and I found it almost sunk into my skin before I could wash it off my face. It didn’t dry my skin out at all or irritate it. I used it with a sponge, a natural-haired facial brush and a Clarisonic. The best result definitely came from using my Clarisonic, and after using the two together, my skin felt squeaky clean without feeling tight and dry. Oh, and the product smells amazing and fresh. If I had a beach house, that’s what I’d want it to smell like.
Obiqo Radiant Day Cream: enriched with nutrients of sea kelp, antioxidant-laden sea lavender, and fortified with sea-sourced collagen and elastin.
This day cream is also great; I have oily/combination skin and found this to be perfectly moisturizing for me, especially during the warmer days I tested this. I’m not sure how it’ll fare for girls with extremely dry skin because it was a very lightweight day cream. The day cream was very non-irritating and worked well into my skin. And again, the smell is so fresh. The only downside is that there’s no SPF in the moisturizer, so you’ll need to add your own each morning.
Obiqo is a luxurious sea-inspired skincare range that combines nutrient-rich sea kelp from New Zealand’s pristine waters and the powerful anti-oxidant properties of French organic sea lavender.
