If you follow our blog, you know we talk a lot about "founder favorites", but what about my husband, John? This incredible, behind-the-scenes guy has been by my side in every way since the day I decided to start the company. Not only is he my financial business partner and the ultimate cheerleader, he is a man of extraordinary taste in all things from fashion to skincare, and is, hands-down, Osmia’s biggest fan.
In honor of Father’s Day, I dabbled in his dopp kit to see which Osmia products he loves the most, and asked him to tell me why they're his favorites.
ROSEMARY BODY MOUSSE
This mousse has a rich rosemary aroma and a texture that can soften even the roughest skin. Our mousse is the ultimate multitasker for John. He smooths it over his shaved head every day and rubs the excess into his beard to smooth any wandering whiskers. He loves it for his heels during the summer months, when flip-flop wearing leaves his feet in need of some healing. He also claims that rubbing it on his chest makes him feel like he's "having a good pec day.” (That one made me laugh, but he does have some fine muscles from his daily yoga practice!)
RUSTIC OO NECKLACE
John is a bling man, but it has to be the perfect, masculine-but-not-overly-masculine bling. He has worked with my dear friend Stacey on at least ten projects by now, and this new piece is already gracing his neck (and mine) regularly. I love it because my daughters and I wear the Original OO Necklace all the time, and now he has his own Os to remind him of his girls while he's on the road.
COFFEE MINT SOAP
BLACK CLAY FACIAL SOAP
John uses this beloved black bar to cleanse his face and beard twice a day. Not only does it keep his complexion clear, it also means, in his words, "I get to use another awesome bar of Osmia soap!"
Know the feeling?? (I sure do!!)
PURELY SIMPLE FACE CREAM
"This is the one thing I miss the most if I forget it during my travels," says John. "I feel like I almost can't live without it anymore." This gentle face cream absorbs quickly and leaves a nice, matte finish as well as a soothed and softened feeling.
NIGHT BODY OIL"I love it in the day and the night."
With love and one fine-smelling fella from us to you,
