It's combination of genuine moonstones and ylang ylang oil soothes, calms and aids in clearing the mind and senses, while lavender oil does it's job to ease anxieties, tension and promote restful sleep.  This oil has become part of my nightly routine!

Face Serum

by Osprey Village Soap Company

Replace your face moisturizer with this and watch your skin glow!

This Face Serum is rejuvenating, reduces inflammation, diminishes fine lines, and helps produce new skin cells and elasticity while cleaning pores. It includes rich nutrients and healthy fats to help restore collagen, moisturize, and to tighten facial skin.

Thick moisturizers clog your pores with heavy waxes, forming a barrier on your skin, and strip your skin of its natural oils. This serum absorbs all of it's active ingredients quickly and deeply instead of lying on your skin surface like a moisturizer. Great for sensitive skin as it cleans clogged pores and removes any dirt, blackheads, whiteheads or irritants. Apply after you wash your face in the evening and in the morning, allowing it to work on your skin all night and day.

Coffee Eye Serum

by Osprey Village Soap Company 

Say goodbye to dark circles and puffy eyes! This Coffee Eye Serum is an infused oil that lightens under-eye circles while removing puffiness. 

Coffee works wonders for our skin.  The caffeine helps tighten fine lines (like the ones around our delicate eye area), and reduces puffiness by preventing blood flow to the area. The stimulating properties of coffee also brightens your skin.. Combined with super-oil rosehip, vitamin E oil and scented with luxurious neroli essential oil which helps regenerate skill cells and improves the skin's elasticity.

Gently roll under your eyes before bed and in the morning after washing your face. Our glass vial includes a metal roller ball for a cooling application that further reduces puffiness.  Osprey Village Soap Company never uses fillers or unnecessary additives so a little goes a long ways!
