Well, Marta asked me if I would try out a product for her and I got rather excited. So I eagerly waited the post man to turn up. There was a knock at the door and I received this parcel. I ripped it open to find a lovely bottle of Osmosis Replenish Antioxidant Repair Serum ($52). I had not even heard of the range so I was quite excited . I read through the ingredients and they all I must say I was impressed. The ingredients really seemed to be so well thought out and each ingredient had a specific skin improving action. I wasn’t sure what harmonized water was so I went on the web site and read up on it. Waters that are in tune with the body, mmmm,, not sure what that means but I thought well lets just use the thing and see what happens.

So I cleansed and whatever and eagerly got my product and took off the cap. Pump action dispenser. So I pressed the pump and the product shot all over the place including my jumper and all over the bathroom. Oh, I thought, so I need to be more careful. It took me a while though to master the technique of getting the stuff out of the tube without it going everywhere. So the pump needs to be changed asap as its really hard to stop the stuff going every where.

Anyway back to the product itself. It smells kind of weird.  It brought to mind a toilet cleaning product but a very natural lemony weird scent. Not really horrid but not really nice either. But to tell you the truth I don’t care even if it smelt really bad as long as it does the trick and as long as it's natural and this definitely does both.

Now my skin is really good normally, but I’ve recently had a three month stint in hospital and had 5 operations in the period including 15 days on a nasty antibiotic called Vancomyacin. So I looked really pale blotchy and my skin had lost it bounce and plumpness.

After the first week of use both morning and night: My gosh!!! My pores disappeared!!! And I look kind of more awake and alive.

The second week: I am really impressed my skin is more luminous and is glowing somewhat incredibly and I seem to have more elasticity in my skin .

Week Three: I am hooked.... really I am..... my skin tone has evened out and a few dark pigmentation areas have lightened - I adore niacinamide!!! And the serum seems to have known that I was not well and tackled all the areas that were a problem. Now rhodiola is an adaptagenic herb that I take orally as it gets to work whereever the body needs it. Wow it's done the same to my face!! I even found it so gentle that I used it around my eyes and I had those really red inflamed corners of my eyes the type you get after you are poorly.... they are no more!!!! And dark circles disappeared. My face is dewy in the morning and I must say I look like I've had a holiday and people have commented on me looking better.

This week I was on a mission and was so impressed with the product I looked and read through the whole product line and read about the range and what is it meant to do. Does anyone want drawers full of old skin care as I am hooked on this range. I need Catalyst and the new Stem Cell Growth factor serum and OK I must be going rather soft in my old age but I need harmonized waters. Anything to beat growing old - even harmonized waters. Did I really admit that? To tell you the truth, yes I did. The product is really great and thank you Marta for giving me the chance to use it.

    I have been using correct and replenish for a while now. Really happy with the result. I have just received a new bottle of replenish and notice it said to rinse the product off? is this just me not noticing it said that before on the older look bottle?

    I've been using Osmosis Renew for about 6 months. Before that, I used Correct. Both are fantastic products, but Renew is more concentrated and more effective at softening my skin, smoothing out my complexion. It's great.

    I was hesitant to try the line initially, having had severe acne when I was younger (and having used Accutane), but I've been amazed at how great my skin looks. The scars have faded, and it's noticeably soft - my boyfriend always comments on it!

    I feel late to the party about commenting on Osmosis. I've been an esthetician for 16 years now. Three yrs ago I started using the products. Dr. Johnson is way ahead of the curve on skincare. He changed the rentin A molecule to a retinaldhyde, so it penetrates to the dermal layer, where everything happens, instead of sitting on the surface of the skin causing redness and irritation. Retin A is still the gold standard for stimulating new cell turnover.He designed Replenish with all the proven antioxidants to go along with this. The new formula has not caused any problems for myself or my clients.Then he developed Catalyst, to repair DNA using zinc finger technology. Then last November he came out with his StemFactor product, which contains all the necessary growth factors to rebuild the skin,with a patent pending delivery system, stem cells are large molecules. Most companies over promise under deliver. This company has cutting edge science to deliver.

    I agree Joshua. I certainly had no problem with the color of the old formula. And what's more I am currently testing Osmosis Boost and that actually stains the skin orange - a subject of a future review. Interesting to see that Julie is experiencing something similar with Calm.

    Thanks Dennis, that would be really cool. And thanks again Marta, for the reply. Weird and a bit silly to take out such a super powered anti-oxidant just so it's "prettier"!
