This Ocean-Inspired Brand Really Needs To Be On Your Radar
Sometimes we come across a brand that really speaks to us – to our skin, to our standards, to our shelfie! Basically, the formulas are impeccable and yield real results that make our skin happy, the packaging looks hella cute in our cabinet, and just as importantly, it’s carbon-neutral and made with intention.
Today, we wanna introduce you to a brand we’ve been diligently testing for over six months to give you the full scoop on some seriously bomb product reccos we know you’ll love. Meet OSEA, skincare derived from the sea made without artificial colors, dyes or synthetic ingredients. Their formulas are packed with seaweed – rich in vitamins, minerals, and nutrients – from all over the world, with each source carefully selected based on its proven clinical efficacy.
From skin-smoothing cleansers and smart moisturizers to luxurious sea salt body scrubs, this brand really is a treasure trove of skincare goodness. We’re gonna dive in at the deep end and give you the 411 on our faves. (We can’t promise there won’t be more sea puns).
1. Seabiotic Water Cream, $54
This lightweight, gel-like cream shore-ly understood the assignment. With mega-hydrators like squalene, bisabolol, and Prebiotic + Probiotic* + Seaweed, the microbiome-friendly formula delivers a healthy dose of nourishment to replenish your skin and leave it feeling buttery-soft. It’s great for everyday use, either for daytime or nighttime, works beautifully under makeup, and suits all skin types – although regular, oily, and combination skin types will love it more. Can we get a shell yeah?!
2. Hyaluronic Sea Serum, $88
This serum contains two weights of moisture-retaining hyaluronic acid (HA) to better penetrate through your skin for intense hydration. The formula is also packed with Japanese Miru seaweed and snow mushroom that replenishes and protects your skin’s moisture levels. If that wasn’t enough, you can actually feel the volcanic marine ferment gently plump the skin while softening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Truly, this is a hyaluronic serum that we understand the price point of because it gives instant results and strengthens the skin over time.

3. Ocean Cleanser, $48
True story, this is officially one of our fave cleansers we’ve ever tried! This water-based cleanser sweeps away dirt, oils, and dead skin cells with two gentle exfoliators – lactic and amino acid – while superfood seaweeds, jojoba seed oil, and sesame seed oil balance for a hydrated and refreshed feel. After every use, your skin will feel incredibly soft, without feeling dehydrated or tight. That citrusy-sweet scent also gets a sanding ovation from the HB posse! Use once a day, and follow with gentle formulas – especially if you have sensitive or acne-prone skin or have other exfoliating/AHA formulas in your routine.
4. Salts of the Earth Body Scrub, $48
Werk this softening formula into your skin before getting your weekly dose of vitamin sea. Mineral-rich salts gently buff away dead skin cells, which are paired with shea butter and wild gigartina seaweed to nourish for “omg, that’s smooth” skin. The scrub leaves a subtle coating of oil on your skin to lock in hydration for skin that stays soft and supple for longer. Unlike other body scrubs, it’s also mess-free and easy to use.
5. Undaria Algae Body Oil, $48
A luscious body oil is essential if you like to tropic like it’s hot… And boy have we found “the one.” This fruity oil contains omega-rich acai and passionfruit to smooth and firm your skin, but its star ingredient is Undaria algae, which is soaked in barrels of oils for up to six months, making it SUPER rich and moisturizing. Pour all over your body for intense moisture and a goddess-worthy glow.
