Luxe Lounge Reviewer: Jacqui
Product: Osea Anti-Aging Body Balm
What I Love: I can spend hours exfoliating, extracting, moisturizing, and primping my face, neck, and chest. But the rest of my body?! Truth is I'm super lazy and often neglect any body lotions, opting to pour naturally scented oils in my bath, which keep my skin soft and hydrated.
I use my fancy body lotions maybe (?) three times a week. I can honestly say, none of them compared to my experience with this body balm. This is my first time trying a body product with "anti-aging" in its name, and the quick results amazed me!
At first I thought, ooh that’s a small bottle for a body lotion, and I have a lot of body to cover. But this product melts in your hands and very little goes a long way! I’ve been using it every day for three weeks, and I still have half the bottle left.
I have to mention the scent. It’s very unique, and not like anything I’ve ever smelled before in a body lotion. I know it’s a very natural (marine) smell, I just don’t recognize it. What I can be sure about, though, is that if you’re looking for a perfume-y scented lotion, this is not for you. OSEA uses marine ingredients, like gigartina algae and alaria esculents, and the scent is reflective of that.
Side note: are "Gigartina" and "Alaria" not the cutest names for my next pets?
I was excited to try the product right away, not only is it beauty from the sea, but did you hear it’s also anti-aging!? Wink wink! So I lotion up and let the magic happen. There is a bit of a sensation when you first apply, not enough to call it tingling, but there is definitely a sensation on your skin. It’s magic!
I have sun damage on my chest from years of neglect and it’s amazing how smooth it looks after 3 weeks. I love this body balm and so happy to recommend it.

Jacqui grew up in Latin America surrounded by beautiful landscapes, gorgeous beaches, and lovely people. She learned at a young age that you can make your own beauty products with simple ingredients like lemon, vinegar, papaya, and raw sugar. Her mom is well known for her perfectly arched Liz Taylor eyebrows, a skill Jacqui did not inherit and has yet to perfect.
Product Obsession: I have two--one I pay for: Sonage's Harmony, botanical glycol. Skin looks brighter and smoother! The other is free: An inner smile, which I'm convinced will keep you wrinkle-free longer!
Melissa gets a thrill every time she enters a Sephora, duty-free cosmetics shop, or even the local drug store (and in her current neighborhood, that just happens to be a super chic Pharmaca). She can spend hours perusing nail polish (the sparklier the better) and eyeshadow (she's always on the quest for the perfect shade of purple). Moisturizer with SPF, liquid liner, mascara, and lip gloss are her beauty essentials.
Product obsession: My oil-blotting papers from Yojiya. They come in the tiniest little package so they're super portable, but instantly tame any shiny spots.
Aurelia has been crazy about skin creams since the age of 12, when she began reading fashion magazines and fretting about future wrinkles. Today, she's still a sucker for serums, moisturizers, and anti-wrinkle creams, which she uses alongside adult-acne ointments (no magazines touched that subject!) and hyperpigmentation treatments (all-natural, of course).
Definitely perfume. I never leave home without a spritz of my signature scent, Diorella.
