Boy do I have a treat for you today! I have had the pleasure of bring contacted by Odacité – a skincare brand out of California to partner up and share with you the wonder that is this fabulous brand.
A little about the company:
After CEO Valérie Grandury was diagnosed with breast cancer she stepped back and re-evaluated her life, adopting a ‘detoxify my life’ strategy she started eating raw foods, studied to become a Heath and Wellness Coach, and when she looked into the ingredients that go into our everyday skincare routine’s she discovered that some of the most toxic items in women’s everyday lives was their skincare products. Loaded with preservatives and chemicals she decided it was time to change the way we look at skincare and she created her own plant-derived skincare that she used on herself.
When she saw a noticeable difference she shared with her friends and not long after her home made skincare boomed into a fabulous company with only the freshest skin care products being made just for you.
I realize this is a first impressions post, so I will be brief and go into more detail about the initial products in a few weeks when I’ve been able to fully sample the package that was sent to me.
I’m going to come right out and say it: I’m an aesthetician but I don’t focus on skincare as much as I should. Maybe it’s because I haven’t found anything that’s really “wowed” me… until now.
In this package I received the following products:
- Rejuvenating Cleanser
- Immortelle Toner
- Beautiful Day Moisturizer
- Ultra Effective Eye Cream
- Hydration Masque
- Two Sponges
- Great Tea and Lemongrass ‘Radiance Effect’ Pure Elements Skin Booster *aka: liquid gold*
When I first received the package I was super impressed with how pretty everything was. The packaging was streamlined, simple and hygienic (big bonus points here), and neatly tied up in a little baggy which perfectly corrals the product in my cabinet.
On top of being hygienic the products are also freshly made with organic ingredients, taken out of the refrigerator and sent straight to you. They are good for six months from the date they’re removed from the fridge (you can even purchase a mini cosmetics fridge with their Pure, Harmony or Elegance collections, how cool is that?!).
The trial package ($29) provides enough product for 10 days (though I’m sure I could get more than that out of a few of the products, namely the eye cream and the hydration masque) and you get a complimentary consultation with a licensed aesthetician.
The first night I used the products I cleansed my face, toned, applied the eye cream (only a grain of rice worth to each eye) and then I applied two drops of the skin booster and the hydration masque overnight.
The next morning I followed almost the same steps but I used the beautiful day cream mixed with two drops of the skin booster as my moisturizer for the day.
My skin felt nourished, and it looked nourished. For once it didn’t feel dry and I didn’t look in the mirror and see my skin flaking in front of me (even after moisturizing).
All day James was complimenting me, telling me how great I looked (though he had no idea why) in the evening I asked why I was getting all the compliments and his response was “You skin is…. glowing….”.
That was all the proof I needed that this product was one that actually made a difference. James has never complimented my skin before besides telling me it’s soft. It’s never looked different to him, and that was the home run hit.
I’m so excited to share more about these products with you in the future, but based on my first impressions I won’t be able to get enough of these products!
