Once you get in a routine with your skin care, autopilot can be somewhat easy to maintain. But what about when you loose a little momentum? Recent events of 2020 and 2021 have caused a lot of us to pull back on our regular salon and spa treatments. Many of us are a little lost with the practice of self care. Feet are often the first area to be neglected. Let’s Be Pedi is a 3-step system by ATAERA BELLA aiming to help get your pedicure-at-home game back on point. They use natural plant based and cruelty free ingredients that deliver both the nourishment our feet needs and the aromatherapy experience we crave. Starting with the Foot Soak, this herbal blend replenishes dry and cracked feet with a blend of calendula, epsom salt, and lemon. You can follow the soak with the Foot Scrub, an antioxidant-rich gentle exfoliator to buff away rough calloused patches. It contains açai berry, lemon, and lavender for yet another invigorating scent experience. Finally, you can finish your pamper routine with the lovely Foot Butter. The richly hydrating shea butter blend contains calendula, eucalyptus, and lemon. It replenishes and seals in moisture for hours. You can use it on your hands and elbows too! This powerhouse trio will have you sandal-ready in no time.

Remember two weeks ago when we shared the Edobio Saketernal Starter Kit? Well those new luxury skin care products now come in full size and a trio set, available for pre-order now and launching on February 25th. Everything is made in Japan and has a true luxury experience start to finish. This three step skin care regimen consists of the Radiance Booster Mask, Fresh Balancing Toner, and Intensive Hydrating Serum. Inspired by the Edo period in Japan, Saketernal is rooted on tradition but also leverages current day biotechnology. The Saketernal line is centered around Sakekasu, otherwise known as sake lees, a natural byproduct of sake brewing. Harnessing the power of this nutrient rich compound and Edobio’s proprietary lactic acid bacteria, this creates both radiance boosting and nourishing formulas. The line is most suitable for normal to dry skin types, targeting everyday skin concerns with brightness, clarity, and overall healthy balance. You can use this skincare trio with your Masu Soap, too!
As for the Radiance Booster Mask, it’s a fragrance-free clay formula fortified with green tea leaf extract and sea silt from Okinawa. This helps deeply absorb impurities. Just apply and leave on for 5-10 minutes then gently rinse away with warm water.
The Fresh Balancing Toner comes in a spray formula so it’s so easy for everyday use. It’s packed with moisturizing ingredients like peach leaf extract among other botanicals. It can also be used after makeup to set or just refresh your face.
Finally, the Intensive Hydration Serum is a moisturizing powerhouse with skin plumping ingredients. It has a dual phase formula of sake lees serum and botanical plant oils, so be sure to shake before using.
Who’s ready for some real everyday luxury skincare? We can’t wait to try!

Last year we discovered the elegant simplicity of EDOBIO and their brand deeply rooted in traditional Japanese beauty methods. They also harness sustainability and science with using natural botanical ingredients and cutting edge biotechnology. The EDOBIO Masu Soap was an OMG hit so we are back today to share their Saketernal Skincare Starter Kit which is the perfect discovery set for a start to finish skin care routine. The four step system is perfect for normal to dry skin as it promotes both radiance and moisture. This premium set includes the luxurious moisturizing soufflé soap, radiance booster mask, fresh balancing toner, and intensive hydration serum. With the Saketernal line, the products are fortified with a proprietary lactic acid bacteria derived from sake. Sakekasu is a natural superfood rooted in the Edo period. It’s a by-product of sake fermentation and production, naturally rich in peptides, amino acids, and vitamins. So not only are these products luxurious, they’re insanely nourishing to the skin. We just love the luxurious modern take on skin care that’s not only beautiful, but also pays homage to tradition and history. This set makes an incredible gift and EDOBIO offers free worldwide shipping on orders $30 or more.

Here at OMG we’re big fans of skin care. Some of the most exciting innovations in skin care are the new technology and devices that have launched over the last few years. The industry has come a long way since the basic spin brush! Enter Skindalicious. They make an ultrasonic scrubber device called Exfolika. It uses sonic pulsations to improve the appearance and health of your skin. The spatula shaped device pluses at 30k pulses per minute to provide a gentle yet deep cleanse like nothing else. Unlike competing brands, Exfolika offers a higher pulse velocity and 5 different cleansing modes. To use, just wet your skin, add a little serum, and gently glide the applicator tip across your face to loosen and lift up impurities, removing blackheads, minimizing sebaceous filaments, and eliminating excess oil. Exfoliation like this allows your skin to absorb skin care such as serums, moisturizers, and other actives on a much deeper level. Just use once or twice a week for a little glow up and you’ll be amazed at all the gunk the applicator tip visibly picks up. The key to healthy glowing skin is gentle exfoliation, and this device is suitable for all skin types. In a time when it’s hard to see our aestheticians regularly, this is the perfect mini treatment to do at home.

Are you looking for a one and done serum that doesn’t break the bank? Today’s OMG has you covered: meet NagaSona. NagaSona is a handmade skin care brand developed by a cosmetic scientist, blending together the efficacy of potent ingredients and the nourishing botanicals found in nature. This hyaluronic acid based serum combines the hydrating benefits of a humectant, plus the resurfacing and brightening properties from AHAs. If you’ve never heard of hyaluronic acid, it’s a powerhouse at helping your skin retain moisture, but it also helps fight free radicals, prevent signs of aging, and promote radiance. Delivering it in serum is great because it can penetrate deep into the skin before other skin care is layered on top. Alpha hydroxy acids help unclog pores, remove dead skin cells, and overall improve the appearance of skin tone. If your skin is feeling dull, uneven, or dehydrated, this serum gives a shot of moisture and glow. What I love most about it is the gel formula that instantly turns into a water-like texture when spread across the skin. It leaves behind a smooth, glass skin like finish. Most importantly, it dries down super thin so you can easily layer a moisturizer and sunscreen on top. Sunscreen is a must everyday, but especially when using products like acids that increase sun sensitivity. I’ve been testing the product for a couple weeks now and I love it. It’s naturally based, backed with real ingredients you can identify like sugar cane extract, glycerin, licorice root extract, orange extract, and so on. The serum is also free of silicone, fragrance, and parabens, which can be irritating. As someone with sensitive skin, I value that a lot and this product is suitable for all skin types. Sometimes all you need for that little extra glow isn’t intense masks or expensive facial treatments, a daily serum packed with the right blend of ingredients and potency can be a more impactful choice.
