Made for you: Top products to try from Omy Cosmetics
I always love trying out new skincare lines, especially if they are Canadian.
I have actually used Omy products in the past and found I really liked the results I saw. This brand, which was established in 2019, hails from Quebec and features a customized skincare experience. You can either purchase the product a la carte from their website or you can fill out a skin analysis and according to your preferences, Omy will select three active ingredients, all of natural origin, and then create an effective skincare product and regimen especially for you and your needs.
Their products are made in Quebec and are paraben, MIT, silicone, and sulfate free, and are formulated with 95 per cent natural ingredients. The skincare products are also 100 per cent vegan, not tested on animals and are environmentally friendly.
Like I said, I have used a few different products from the brand in the past after taking the skincare quiz on their website. They have also recently sent me some new items to try out and share with you guys, and spoiler alert, they do not disappoint.
Pure Oil – 5% vitamin C + squalane
I always love trying out new serums since they are so important in your skincare routine. A must-have ingredient? Vitamin C!
The Omy Pure Oil – 5% Vitamin C + Squalane (C$59.99) is a serum that gives you radiant skin and is great for all skin types and ages.
This formula contains five per cent stabilized Vitamin C, which comes in an extremely potent form, and is suitable for all skin types, even those with highly sensitive skin. The thing that makes this product special is that their stabilized Vitamin C is not photosensitive, instead it activates on contact with the skin and is compatible with other ingredients like niacinamide or retinol.
Since it’s a vegetable squalene, the Vitamin C found in this serum penetrates deeper into skin, leaving you with more radiance, collagen production, and elasticity.
In addition to Vitamin C, it also contains superfruits such as acai berry and passion fruit, which is abundant in scent as soon as you apply it. It also has antioxidants and stabilized Vitamin E to preserve your skin’s hydration and protect it from external aggressors.
Finally, the added squalane in this serum comes from plants and mimics the skin’s natural sebum, which helps to balance all types of skin, especially those with oily or combination skin. The squalane is sourced from sugar cane and helps with the fluid and light texture of the oil overall.
I absolutely love this serum and find it makes my skin look so hydrated and glowing. I has a really nice texture to it and a beautiful and uplifting scent, which I know isn’t always a good thing for people with scent allergies but if you don’t mind some fragrance in your skincare then I think you’ll really like this.
For the ultimate in self care, apply the serum and then go in with a Gua Sha. Omy actually offers their own personalized Gua Sha (C$39.99), which would make a perfect gift for someone.
In case you aren’t familiar with what Gua Shas do, they were originally created for traditional Chinese medicine thousands of years ago and help with lymphatic drainage. Omy’s Gua Sha is made with black obsidian and was designed to promote a firming and lifting effect on the skin.
The personalized Gua Sha is engraved with your name (or anything else you want on it) and is made with volcanic stone in Quebec City.
Multi-Action Contour Cream with Peptides
A must in your skincare routine? A good eye cream and Omy’s Multi-Action Contour Cream with Peptides (C$54.99) will do just the trick.
This eye cream contains a number of effective ingredients to refresh the eyes, smooth the delicate eye area, and reduce the appearance of puffiness. It contains a number of peptides and hyaluronic acid to hydrate and tighten the skin. It’s also great for all types of dark circles, fine lines and wrinkles, and under-eye bags.
The formula contains 25 per cent active ingredients, as well as 96.8 per cent natural ingredients. It’s also 100 per cent vegan. The hyaluronic acid hydrates and plumps the skin, smoothing out fine lines and crow’s feet, whereas the added peptides help to stimulate collagen synthesis and slow down the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also contains quinoa extract to reduce dark circles, puffiness, and the appearance of undereye bags, and horse chestnut extract reduces the appearance of dark circles, poor circulation, and water retention.
I love the packaging of this product since it features a slanted tip and a squeeze tube making it really simple to apply. I find that it leaves my eye area feeling really hydrated and lifted, and any puffiness is reduced.
For the ultimate undereye experience, pair the eye cream with their Reusable Eye Patches (C$19.99).
These eye patches, which feature the cutest Good Morning motif, are made of 100 per cent vegan silicone and are designed to hold your eye cream in place and help it penetrate more quickly into your skin. These eye patches can be used up to 30 uses and help your eyes look more refreshed.
Apply your cream and then wait 15 or so seconds until it’s slightly tacky and then apply the patches to the undereye area. Wear them for 15 minutes and then remove for a more lifted and glowing appearance.
Omy has a ton of other great products to try out. Like I said in the beginning, I love how this is a Canadian skincare line and I love the whole personalization factor in how they determine which products are good for your skin. To shop their whole line, click here
