Who knew this tiny bottle of blended oils would be my new weapon for spot treating breakouts? Colorado comapny Osmia Organics has a cult following that swears by this Spot Treatment serum to get rid of breakouts and prevent new skin erruptions without annoying drying or flaking that most creams cause. They use a combo of organic evening primrose oil and essential oils of lavender, cajeput, lemon, parsley, thyme, cypress, and rosemary in a bottle about as big as my thumb. I have no idea how it’s possible that a bunch of oils heal skin erruptions as well as they do (without salycilic or benzoyl) but that’s exactly what it does. Look, if you feel a zit coming on chances are it will still happen, but in a much less obnoxtious and lingering sort of way.
I bought this bottle at Vert Beauty (my fave cosmetics and skincare store in Denver), but you can check them out online and especially follow them on Instagram because their founder Dr. Sarah Villafranco shares some great stuff.
