Osmosis Skincare is a brand focused on the holistic aspect of skincare as well as the clinical. They analyze the skin and body as a whole to treat the conditions at the source. It’s a holistic approach to clinical grade skincare. Figures that when I lived right next to the Osmosis headquarters (I was born & raised in Denver) I didn’t even know they existed. I have multiple items to go through from Osmosis so I’ll start with the easy ones the Purify Enzyme Cleanser & Quench Intense Moisturizer.
Quench Intense Moisturizer packs a huge punch for its light texture. Details per Osmosis:
Quench contains high amounts of hyaluronic acid, organic shea butter, and jojoba seed oil to provide various lipids that restore the epidermal barrier. It also contains advanced peptides to aid in skin rejuvenation.
This is a lovely moisturizer. This lotion texture moisturizer really packs a hydrating punch. It does take a while to sink into the skin for me. I says it’s for all skin types and dry skin. This is probably not for oily or oily to combo skin types. I would say combo to dry it will work. In the summer I would use this more at night, in the winter I can use this in the day. I actually really like to use this on the weekend when I don’t have to go anywhere or put on makeup. I can let my skin get all the dewy glow moisture benefits. It smells faintly like lemons.
This is most definitely a restorative moisturizer with glycerin, shea butter, jojoba oil, sodium hyaluronate, squalane and sodium pca to hydrate deeply and replenish the skin. It also contains Caprooyl-Tetrapeptide-3 a signal peptide derived from a growth factor and stimulates collagen & laminin production. Laminins are glycoproteins that play a key role in keeping the epidermis adhered to the dermis in a membrane. This membrane helps keep everything from sagging so to speak. So it’s a peptide you want in your life. I would definitely recommend this moisturizer for anyone who needs a hydrating boost. It makes my skin feel so amazingly hydrated and has great long term benefits when used daily.

Purify Enzyme Cleanser is a gel cleanser that gently exfoliates. Details per Osmosis:
Infused with bromelain to gently smooth the frayed edges of photodamaged skin without removing the protective lipid barrier. Sweet orange and pink grapefruit essential oils create a pleasing citrus scent and give the skin a naturally clean feel.
I love the airless pumps that all Osmosis items come packaged in. This gel cleanser has a slight citrus scent and leaves my skin soft and clean without feeling stripped or dehydrated. It’s SLS free which is all I use anymore as far as cleansers go. The citrus oils give a gentle AHA (alphahydroxy acid) exfoliation to the skin. It’s hard for me to write a ton about a cleanser like this as it’s simple, effective and mostly self explanatory. This is perfect for a morning cleanse which is my preferred method or as a second cleanse. I only use oils to remove my makeup at night so I wouldn’t even test this in that aspect.
