A real thrill as a beauty editor is coming across a brand or product that isn’t quite mainstream yet. But nonetheless exciting, unique and just plain awesome! This peel from O.R.G Skincare is making my skin sing!
First, a little about this indie brand. O.R.G Skincare’s inspiration is Asian skincare and methodology. They also focus on natural ingredients will still maintaining efficacy. A specific ancient ritual from Korea inspired the Organic Mineral Peel:
Silla, one of the three kingdoms that occupied the Korean Peninsula, developed a culture of bathing purposes of ritual purification in bathhouses called Jjimilbang, meaning heated bath. After an individual would soak themselves in these infused baths, an appointed person would ‘massage out’ all the remaining dead skin cells and impurities from the body.
O.R.G. Organic Mineral Peel Face does the same thing, gently exfoliating the skin with all-natural enzymes and brightening the complexion with Milk Thistle and Aloe Vera. The exfoliating action actually creates beads as seen below – one of my more rewarding skin care experiences. I spray on dry skin generously and use tips of your fingers in a circle motion. The formula doesn’t have any scrubbing agents, so it is great for acne-prone or sensitive skin. Just work it into the skin until it dissipates and then rinse.
I’ve found that any skincare steps I take after using the peel are amplified. My moisturizer seems smoother and it feels as if active ingredients work even better. The formula has no scent and is extremely gentle on my easily irritated skin.
