Created by ocean lovers, Amasea Beauty creates Thalassotherapy seaweed skincare products with its ingredients wild foraged and hand harvested.
The SeaScrub ($48) promises to soothe, exfoliate, and fortify the skin with california solar salt, fresh sea salt, brown seaweed, red seaweed, and butterfly pea flower. It also has an abalone shell scoop sustainably sourced in Santa Barbara, California. This is really weird for me because there is literally a shell inside. It smells like a wet market if we’re being honest here. It has a bit of coarseness as well, literally like being on a beach and lying on sand and basking in the sunlight. The tub screams summer vacation. This leaves my dry skin feeling soft, hydrated, and nourished so I like using this as a foot scrub and a body scrub for the drier parts of my skin.
The SeaMist ($50) aims to balance, revitalize, nourish, and correct tired, dull-looking skin with california solar dried sea water, brittany sea salt, red snow algae powder, and butterfly pea flower. This toner is watery but has a slight viscosity to it. It feels light and absorbs quickly but still hydrating. I sometimes use my toner to wet my makeup brushes but this, I think because of the salt ingredients, doesn’t work well that way. This is really more of a hydrating toner that plays well with serums.
The VitaSea ($63) claims to be a hydrator that helps remove toxins and inflammation while plumping and smoothing the skin using. Like the other products, this serum amazingly smells like the sea. The gel-like texture and runny consistency suit my oily skin and sinks in really fast before leaving a silky finish. This is one of the most hydrating serums I’ve tried and it always leaves my skin looking plump and feeling soft.
The DeepSea ($75) is microalgae serum formulated with California red and brown wild native seaweeds to restore cellular function, increase elasticity, improve circulation, propagate stem-cell turnover, and stimulate protein production. Similar to VitaSea, this feels hydrating and sinks in quickly into the skin. It also feels nourishing and leaves my skin feeling really smooth.
The SeaGlo ($45) is oil from microalgae that works to hydrate, reinforce and strengthen the moisture barrier, and support cellular activity and protein production. This oil is on the heavy side so I like using this at night on my hair and body. As a face oil, it kind of sits on top of my oily skin so this is better for me as a #bodyoil after using the SeaScrub.
It’s been so fun using these products as everything smells like the beach, like a summer-perfect skincare routine that deeply hydrates and nourishes the skin. The standouts for me, though, are VitaSea and DeepSea as they work so well for my oily skin in terms of hydrating and plumping my skin.
