Not sure if I'm using this balm as it's supposed to be used; However, all I can say is that I skipped 1 day and I could feel the difference! Now, I haven't noticed any skin "tightening" nor do I really expect any miracles from a body balm (let's be realistic here). What I wasn't expecting, and what amazed me, is the ultra hydrating effect of this product. It truly is amazing. I'm using the body oil first, massage it in well, and then massage in the balm.
I have dry, sensitive skin and take a number of medications so keeping hydrated is a challenge. I've tried MANY different brands of lotions...everything from drugstore brands to high end spa/luxury products. So far, Osea is the winner!
It's well worth the time and the money. You use very little product.
Thank you Ulta for finding the Osea brand! I've already purchased 4 times and I'm getting ready to order more! Please continue to carry this line. The full line would be wonderful!
I rarely write reviews, but I felt compelled to write this one because of the price of this product. This is not a serum or a stand alone moisturizer. I would describe it as an oil. You have to VIGOROUSLY shake the bottle to mix the product before dispensing. The first time I used it, I didn't shake and it came out as a liquid and was extremely oily and I contemplated returning it. I gave it another shot and shook the bottle mildly and it still was very much a liquid and oily. I gave it one last shot and shook the book extremely and it finally had the consistency of more like a serum but I would still describe this as very oily. Also it seems the product doesn't really sink into the skin because I will put it on and wear it a full 24hrs but when I go to shower, it is still there and then I wash it away so it's not really absorbing. I ended up not returning because when it is on it does feel hydrating, but still it just sits on top of the skin rather than sinking in. I now use it after I've been in the sun all day or in the evening before I go to bed as it's too greasy to wear during the day. I think there are better anti-aging body serums/balms out there so I won't repurchase this.

This product works and does what it says, but it separates in the jar. The pump starts to give you more oil and not enough lotion. I end up shaking it and taking the pump out to get the lotion out in a good ratio.

It's greasy and it does not moisturize nearly as well as the (much more affordable) products I have previously used. I bought bottles for my mother in law, my own mother, and myself. None of us like it.

I love this product it keeps my hydrated all day and I love the light scent.
I'll keep purchasing this product.

loved the product however very disappointed with customer service. I received a birthday coupon that was unavailable. I was told to contact customer service so I sent an email. Crickets no reply.
If you are going to offer a promotion, it should be available or at least a substitute

I'm like this companies products, but their packaging is terrible. The pumps on several products I have purchased do not work or have been physically broken and needed to return.
PH from Houston
I love all of Osea's products and this one delivers…. If you can get it out of the glass bottle.
The product is too thick for the pump, making the pump useless. The bottle is glass so you cant squeeze the product out.

Great product. Repurchased 2 times alreasy. However, you do get very little product ans the packaging is pore. Aesthetically, the glass bottles are great. But both times, the pumps do not work. I had to physically remove the product from the bottle so i could use it. Plus, the consistency and the pump make it impossible to get the little product left when you are almost done with the bottle. I'd repurchase a lot more if the packaging was different for the price.

This product is amazing!! The bottle is another story. It stopped working on my 2nd use. Very frustrating. For how much it cost, that shouldnt be a problem. This seems to be a trend for their products unfortunately

First off: I would take a bullet for the body balm itself—it smells divine and is SO moisturizing. However, as others have commented, the packaging is complete rubbish; the pump never worked right and completely failed after 2 uses. It's an excellent body balm, but they really need to reassess the packaging.

Not only is this helping to hydrate my dry Arizona skin but it seems to be helping with my KP.

Makes my skin so glowy and soft, its my go to!!

I love the anti-aging body balm. I put it on right out of the shower and it goes on silky smooth. I like to let it soak into my skin for a few minutes before putting on nice clothes. As other reviews mention, you will want to shake it before you pump it out. I think it smells a little bit like a citronella plant, for me that's a positive because I love that fresh citrusy lemony scent.
Haley from NC
I don't know if my body is broken, but this balm seems to simply sit on my skin and not sink in at all. Once it dissipates, my skin is exactly the same as it was before, meaning, there seems to be no cumulative effect after use in any given day. It seems to sit on skin and then simply disappear. Not sure it this makes sense, but I plan to finish the bottle to see if there is any change in my skins receptivity to it. I am halfway through it now.

I was super excited to use this and my bottle didn't feel grainy like other reviews said. It smells great and goes on smoother than the oil. But then 2 days later, a rash everywhere I applied it. So im sitting here trying not to scratch and warning you.

This. is. a very. moisturizing body balm. It. feels like an oil on the skin . It has. a light. herbal. smell , which goes away . It. is. not. worth fifty four dollars. I'd. rather. it came in. a. plastic bottle , if. it. meant lowering the cost. For. the small amount you get and. the. high price tag , it. is. not. worth. it.

A couple of weeks ago I purchased the Osea Body Oil. Simply LOVE it!!!! So when I was in ULTA I remembered I was out. So I went and grabbed the bigger size! Once home, I realized I had purchased the Osea Anti-Aging Body Balm. I was upset but once I tried it - it is AWESOME!! Just going to add this to my regiment too. My skin has never felt so good!! So hydrating!!

I really wanted to love this moisturizer especislly since its on the pricey side. I tried it on my dry skin and it started clumping up.
Its very oily too. I liked the scent so I decided to try again after showering. It did the same thing - I rubbed it on my skin and it made little clumps and wouldny absorb into my skin. It was gross and I had to toss it.
J from Tupelo, Mississippi
I love this lotion and want to buy it again BUT i dont want to have to struggle with a nonworking/useless pump. Seems like several others have the same issue; so, its not a one off. I actually came to the reviews to see if anyone else had the same problem. Please fix the pump!
Diane from NV
First off could not get the pump to work, which was very frustrating. Product seemed to be very oily feeling and not penetrate skin very well. Ended up taking back.
Lake from Saint Paul, MN
I love this brand so much but am not the biggest fan of this. Because this is a balm it's thicker when applied and doesnt fully sink in. As someone with acne proned skin it definitely clogged my pores and caused smaller breakouts all over. I think think this balm would be amazing for someone with severely dry skin or eczema, but not for ance prone.
TF Rome from Rome, GA
What a bummer. I spent a hefty amounton this body balm and the product was so thick that the pump stopped working about 40% into the bottle. The container is glass so there's no way to squeeze it out. Waste of money.
Mary from Texas
No need to wait for weeks to see effects. After two days, the skin on my legs and arms looked a lot less crepey and dryness was gone. I switch it out with other Osea body products and I've never seen such a difference at any price point.
Gail from Wilmington nc
I use on my face. It's too expensive for all over..
Kristy from Charlotte
Loved this product but wasted so much of it due to the packaging. And it's expensive too! The products gets stuck at the bottom and around the top and the pump doesn't allow you to get the rest of it out. I won't buy again until the packaging is changed.
Beck from Kansas City
This stuff is amazing! I'm 51 and my skin has made a complete texture turn around! I have tried everything but this brand is the first that actually works.
