Shortly after Marta’s review of Osmosis Replenish ($52) I decided to buy a bottle. I highly suggest you read her review, the way she breaks down the majorly impressive ingredient list will surely tempt you into something very worthwhile.
I was traveling for work and Thanksgiving when I bought my bottle, and all my traveling had surely taken a toll on my skin. It looked dull and a little red rough patch had formed near my chin. So I was excited to test out this new serum upon my return. You should know that not only is Osmosis Replenish super packed with antioxidants, but most of their ingredients are chirally correct. Chiral (prounced ki-rul) is a type of molecule that’s much easier for your body to absorb. Basically, molecules exist in two forms, the left and the right. And these two forms are mirror images of each other. When an ingredient is in the form of just one side of the molecule (ex: R-lipoic acid) the body has a way easier time absorbing it and it is much less likely to cause irritation. But let us not get too caught up in the science, and lets get down to results.
The first few days I used Replenish my skin was a little red right after use. Not red in an irritated inflamed sort of way. More like red, in a flush, blood-is-rushing-to-my-cheeks pretty sort of way. It tingled for a few moments, but did not irritate me at all (and I’ve got sensitive skin!). Within a few days to a week my skin started to look smoother, dewy, and all-around much healthier. And I know it wasn’t in my head, because my boyfriend even commented on it! Everything else in my routine (both skin and food) stayed the same, so I was pretty sure I owed my results to Replenish.
This serum isn’t exactly moisturizing, so I still feel the need to use a light moisturizer after. But I try to wait at least a minute before applying the moisturizer so that I know the serum as been absorbed. I am really happy with my results and I’m excited to learn the TIA store carries this product, because I’ll definitely be replenishing my Replenish.
