One Love Organics Sample Kit Review

One Love Organics has been getting a crazy amount of attention, both inside and outside of the green beauty community, for their skin perfecting line of products. I was lucky enough to win a sample set, back in May, from The Daily Beauty Blotter and have finally worked my way through the samples.

Description: A cute little sample pack of our entire line, A Little Love Sample Pack includes single use samples of Easy Does It Foaming Cleanser, Brand New Day Microderma Scrub and Masque, Skin Savior Waterless Beauty Balm, Morning Glory Brightening Complexion Booster, and Love Springs Eternal Youth Preservation Serum. Included: 1.5 ml sample of Easy Does It Foaming Cleanser, 4 ml sample of Brand New Day Microderma Scrub and Masque, 4 ml sample of Skin Savior Waterless Beauty Balm, 1.5 ml sample of Morning Glory Brightening Complexion Booster, and 1.5 ml sample of Love Springs Eternal Youth Preservation Serum. Note: This sample set includes a informational card that tells you what to use and when to use it, it also lists ingredients.
I'm always hesitant to start using new products because my skin so easily freaks out. Plus, I figured I should use this kit solely, to really get an idea of how they work in conjunction with each other. It's rare my entire skin care routine is comprised of one brand.

Easy Does it: I've tried a sample of this cleanser before and wasn't a fan, but for some reason I really liked it this time around. The best way (that I've found) to use it is to dampen your skin, apply a little cleanser to it, then add a little more water to emulsify. It left my skin mostly makeup free and super soft. Wasn't expecting that from a foaming cleanser!

Skin Savior: When I think of OLO, I think of this Skin Savior Waterless Beauty Balm. It has a million and one uses and everyone raves about it, but I didn't enjoy it at all. I tried it as a cleanser, and while it worked, I found it too heavy. I tried to use it on dry/dehydrated patches on my face and found it never absorbed nor did it help get rid of the patches.

Brand New Day Scrub: This scrub/mask is really nice. I tried it as a scrub and as a mask, both times my skin was left super soft and bright.

Morning Glory Brightening Complexion Booster: I loved this stuff! I found it really brightened up my skin and woke it up in the morning. I would even apply it at night, before going out, and it just made my skin glow.

Love Springs Eternal Youth Preservation Serum: I didn't quite use this, to be totally honest. I stuck with my tamanu and sea buckthorn mix at night because it works for keeping blemishes at bay. I will likely give it a go or pass it along to my mom. Either way, I will give you a mini review in an empties post.

While I was using the cleanser and Morning Glory serum, my face was absolutely glowing. What I did find, is that once the cleanser ran out and I was using the serum with a different cleanser, it didn't quite produce the same results. I won't be purchasing full sizes of anything right now, however, I am very glad that I got to try this sample set and highly recommend giving it a go.

I (believe) this set retails for $4.95 USD and has free shipping. US residence can pick it up through One Love Organics. I'm not sure if this set is available in Canada or anywhere else in the world.

  1. Love the sound of the ingredients, and the packaging is so sweet too! I'm wondering if they ship to England? Might go check :) x

    1. They have a UK/EU version of the site and this sample kit is on there, I keep looking at this brand but haven't gotten rond to ordering yet :)

    2. Totally love their packaging! Thanks Tammy for letting us know :). Let me know if either of you end up trying the kit

  2. I like the sounds of this brand and the sample ideas..always gives you a good chance of finding at least one product that you want to buy again! Between all I would definitely like to try the Morning Glory Brightening Complexion Booster..How can you say no to a glowing skin :))

    1. Agreed, sample sizes are the way to go. All companies should offer samples, perhaps a mix and match (pick the samples you want). Morning Glory is lovely, you'll love it xo

  3. Pretty rare to get to read a review like this - not many people are brave enough to (almost) completely overhaul their routine but I completely agree that with some brands it's about using a couple of their products together to really get a good picture of what they have to offer...and love your honesty guuurl!

    1. Thanks chicky! It's sooo hard to give up what you love just to try a whole line of products you're not sure will work for you, so worth it though. Note to self: maybe try sticking to one line instead of 80 lol. Xo!


Thanks for the comment/feedback!
