beauty scoop | osmia organics spot treatment

If you’ve been around the blog for a bit, you know that I’m always looking for the next best blemish treatment.

While I believe I have found my holy grail of acne prevention, when annoying little spots crop up every now and then, I turn to Osmia Organics Spot Treatment for backup.

osmia organics spot treatment

{Osmia Organics sent me its 0.16-ounce Spot Treatment, which retails for $20, to sample and review.}

Made with a powerful blend of essential oils, Osmia Organics Spot Treatment gets to work on those little red beasts by swooping in, killing bacteria and leaving nothing but beautiful, clear skin in its path.

Take a peek at the ingredients:

Organic evening primrose oil and essential oils of organic lavender, organic cajeput, organic lemon, parsley, thyme, organic cypress and organic rosemary CO2

The only ingredient unfamiliar to me is cajeput oil. After a little research, I learned that cajeput oil is similar to tea tree oil with its antifungal properties — perfect for a blemish treatment, and even better for my acne-prone skin that hasn’t experienced cajeput oil before!

(Note: I think my skin is getting a little bit used to tea tree oil, so it’s not as effective for me anymore — I’m experimenting more with a tea tree and lavender blend as well as other acne-fighting oils!)

Because the Spot Treatment is packaged in a convenient roller ball style, I like to roll the treatment into my hairline (a recurring breakout place for me) to help keep little pimples from breaking through.

When a pimple has formed on my face, I roll the Spot Treatment directly onto the offender, and usually by morning the spot has either 1) become ready for extraction or 2) has decreased in size.

Final verdict? I think Osmia Organics Spot Treatment is my new secret weapon for bratty little blemishes! The mix of new-to-my-skin ingredients (as well as old standbys like lavender and rosemary) keeps my skin in check and allows the Spot Treatment to do truly amazing things to my skin.

Have you tried products from Osmia Organics (I hear their bar soaps are absolutely fabulous, and have a few to try myself!)? What do you do to spot-treat blemishes? Tell me your thoughts in the comments section!

    Cajeput is wonderful stuff. It will obliterate anything. It’s also good during this germ-filled season. I just made a purifying room spray for my home today with cajeput in the mix to clear the air.

      @marnie that sounds delightful! i need to get my hands on some pure cajeput for my collection :)

    Hi Kimberly, at first best wishes for 2012!
    This product sounds great. Although I live in Europe I like your blog very much. You are so focused on natural skincare, just as I am. Unfortunately we don’t have as much choice as you have in the US. But maybe my boyfriend will go to Phoenix in spring so I’m already preparing a whishlist hahaha…. I would like to know whether the Osmia products can only be bought through their website or does Whole Foods also sell their products?

  • Martine

    I meant 2013 of course!

  • kimberlyloc

    @martine thanks so much for reading all the way from europe! i think you can only get osmia organics via their website at the moment, as i haven’t seen it at whole foods just yet. i would love to know what else is on your wish list!!! xoxo

    Well my list is rather long but here we go:
    – The secret facial cleanser from Kelly Teegarden
    – after having read your review I would like to have the Zum Rub Frankincense & Myrrh. Just like you I still have pimpels but I would like to approach them less agressivly
    – The Badger Damascus Rose SPF lotion (also after your review)
    – Well, the osmia spot treatment, although I think that will become rather difficult now you told me that it is sold on their website only
    – EOS lipbalms, here in Holland we can only buy them on the internet which is much more expensive
    – Livingproof full shampoo and thickening cream, I have very fine hair and after having read some reviews this might give me some more volume
    – La vanila deodorant, I’m very into natural deodorants and I would love to try this one
    – Intensive Hair Repair Argan Oil Masque, to give my hair some extra treatment without the silicons

    As you can see it’s a very impressive list and I don’t know whether my boyfriend can really take these home for me. Afterall it’s still a business trip ;-)).
    Keep up the great work with your blog!!! I love it.

    @martine this is a GREAT list! i dont think you will be disappointed by much on the list. i have a review of the lavanila deodorant coming up soon. it works “OK” for me but still not strong enough for my body type. your boyfriend MUST get you the Zum Rub. it is a miracle worker, i promise! also, i hope you can order the osmia spot treatment — it great for treating pesky pimples on the go!!! thank you so much for reading my blog. new posts will be up next week!!!! xoxo
