Company: Osmia Organics

Product pick: Adzuki Nourishing Mask

What it is:  Adzuki beans have been used for centuries by Japanese women to exfoliate their skin. In this mask, Osmia Organics combines Adzuki beans with organic quinoa to give the skin a gentle exfoliation, while moisturizing deeper layers of the skin. Wild-harvested red sandalwood powder tones and smoothes the skin, and essential oils of sandalwood, lavender, and rose geranium create a heavenly aroma. But the real secret? Osmia Organics mills the beans and quinoa themselves, providing a "fresh-pressed" effect - like a protein bath for the skin. If you're in a rush, this powder can also be used as a cleansing and exfoliating paste. If you have time to spare, leave it on as a mask for the most potent effects - providing the skin with fortifying proteins, and a tightening action that leaves skin feeling both firm and soft, and smelling of earth and lavender.

Solution for: Normal, dry, or mature skin.  Use as a gentle exfoliant in a cleansing paste or as a mask.
