Oh Captain, My Captain...

If you haven't yet encountered Osea at spas around the country, you will soon. With this all-natural, marine-based skin care line it's all about top ingredients (versus fancy packaging): seaweed from Hawaii, Brittany and Iceland, essential oils, green tea, red wine or olive fruit extracts... Not sure where to begin? Try the Ocean Cleansing Mudd. It leaves the skin tingling with pepperminty freshness. The Eyes and Lips treatment is a nice companion for your desk drawer in the office—dab a little on your delicate lip and eye area to feel hydrated and plump again. You can enjoy full Osea spa treatments at the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea and The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay. Osea is available at top retailers like Fred Segal Apothia in LA, Harvey Nichols in the UK, Lane Crawford in Hong Kong and at Celeb fans include Reese Witherspoon, Brittany Spears and Sofia Coppola.
