After years of trying out different products to no avail, I finally discovered the secret to clear skin, and it doesn’t involve harsh chemicals or acids that can leave your skin irritated and dry. I’ve tried every treatment under the sun, from peels and heavy-duty exfoliants to spot treatments and expensive facials, but my search for a blemish-free complexion is finally over. I now swear by two serums that are 100% natural, vegan, and free of GMOs and gluten. A complete win-win!
These two serums are both from natural beauty powerhouse, Odacité, and when combined, create my ultimate remedy for acne and blemish-prone skin. Odacité offers a wide range of products for every step in your process and each one is specially catered to treat specific skincare concerns. The brand is built on a foundation of efficacy and purity. Founder, Valerie Grandury, focuses on combining “French skincare & green California living.” After being diagnosed with breast cancer, she was determined to become a health and wellness expert and promptly removed all toxins from her life. Every single one of her products are certified organic, made locally in California using the highest quality ingredients possible, and are never tested on animals.
I mix Odaciteé Jo+L and BL+C Serum Concentrates and apply to clean skin before moisturizing as part of both my morning and night time routines, but they can also be applied as spot treatments or mixed in with your favorite cream. They come in small 5ml bottles but pack a big punch. A little goes a long way, you only need two-three drops per use and one bottle should last you at least 30 days.
The Jo+L Serum is formulated specifically for clogged pores. With only three ingredients (cold-pressed certified virgin organic jojoba oil, certified organic lavender essential oil, and certified GMO-free vitamin E oil), you know exactly what you’re getting in each bottle. Jojoba improves the appearance of clogged pores and excess sebum, while lavender oil cleanses the skin, removing impurities and allowing the skin to breathe. Not to mention, this serum smells amazing, with the delicate calming lavender scent.
Valerie Grandury founder of Odacite says, "In the serum Jo+L, the base is cold pressed organic golden Jojoba oil. What is fascinating about jojoba oil is that it is almost the same constitution as our own skin sebum. This perfect biocompatibility to the skin gives Jojoba oil the capacity to sink into the pores, soften the sebum plug (clogging element) which makes it very easy to flush the pores from impurities and grime. The jojoba is supported with lavender essential oil, which is known for its great purifying properties, that support clean pores."
Bl+C targets pimples, effectively reducing the appearance of blemishes. Cold-pressed certified virgin organic black cumin oil purifies the skin for a smooth and clear complexion. Meanwhile, certified organic cajeput oil helps clear up breakouts and is also known to promote clear thoughts.
"Studies about oily acne-prone skin, show it is often deficient in an essential fatty acid called linoleic acid. This deficiency indirectly clogs pores and leads to breakouts. Our Bl+C Pimple Serum Concentrate contains 70% Linoleic acid making it a great ally to prevent the appearance of clogged pores and pimples." Says Valerie Grandury founder of Odacite.
I noticed a huge difference after implementing these two products into my regimen and now can’t imagine going without them. They’re my holy grail acne treatments and I love that they’re so gentle on my skin, leaving my complexion looking and feeling smooth, clear, and radiant.
