Natural Retinol Skincare and Lip Plumping Treatment

Happy Friday loves! Natural Retinol Skincare and Lip Plumping Treatment! Yes, this month’s Art of Organics box is exactly this. Two products, that I have enjoyed immensely. Take a minute to watch the video to hear my extended thoughts. I have also included a breakdown of everything below. 

Embrace Art of Organics Box


The theme for this month’s curation is Embrace featuring these two beautiful products:



  • Minimally formulated with 3 organic ingredients.
  • Organic Cacay Oil which is 3x more powerful than rosehip oil to help stimulate the skin.
  • The standout ingredient, Cacay is one of the most sustainable oils on the planet and acts as a naturally occurring retinol.
  • Smells beautifully nutty and very grounded. 
  • Is lightweight and can be used many ways to boost other products (face masks, moisturizers, etc), or can be used alone.
  • Perfect for sensitive skin, as the ingredients are fairly minimal but still contains actives. 

  • In my evening skincare routine as an intensive eye treatment
  • Using my fingers I gently tap the product into the orbital bone
  • This serum is very lightweight, and spreads nicely, therefore the smallest amount is needed


  • Addresses and treats signs of vertical lines and wrinkles that lips naturally develop with age
  •  CoQ10 with Vitamin C is a super antioxidant
  • Green Adventurine Crystal brings good luck & prosperity. 💚
  • Mint and Capsicum gives a natural plumping effect


  • as the last step in my morning skincare routine to plump and rehydrate the lips 
  • as a primer, prior to applying lipstick or gloss
  • at night as the last step in my nightime skincare routine
  • at night, prior to applying a heavier balm

Thank you so much for spending some time with me today! If you wanted to get this box, I will leave the link here

    I am hoping to try the Beautycounter rejuvenating skin care line….I have heard that it really plumps the skin and I need all the plumping I can get!!! 🙂

    Thank you for reviewing the box. I have been interested in both of the items that you reviewed. I definitely want to get them now. I also have sensitive skin so it was great to learn about the ingredients and how few there were in the serum. Wabisabi might have to be added to my favorite list with Fitglow!

    My favourite is a rejuvenating oil from Veletta skincare.

    Hi Jenna,
    Thank you so much for this very informative video review. I am a huge fan of the AOO boxes but have been taking a break for a month or so. When I initially saw the product by Odacite I could not for the life of me figure out why anyone would spend their money on the lip serum. Funny though, with that thought being fresh in my mind the one thing bothering me this week has been lines in areas around my lips that I have not noticed before. Sure we tend to our crows feet and we diligently take care of our skin but how often do we think of the lines around out mouth?!!?!! Well, I will be 48 this year… far as I am concerned, the crows feet are not too bad, the skin is ok but what on earth is happening around my lips?…..This is indeed new territory!

    I have been so tempted to pick up this Art of Organics box, both products look amazing!

    I haven’t tried Odacite yet, but this product really intrigued me. It’s definitely on the pricier side, but I’m always willing to spend more for quality products. So far, my favorite natural skincare line has been Laurel Whole Plant Organics. That line has really helped with my rosacea, so it’s been life saving!

    I have been dreaming of trying the Adventurine lip serum from Odacite! It’s been on my wishlist for a while! I was excited to see you doing a review on it and even more excited to see the giveaway!!

    I love to use drunk elephant skincare line.

    My favorite organic/natural skincare line is May Lindstrom. It is the only line I have found that is worth the money and covers everything my 32 year old skin needs, from keeping acne away, helping with aging and keeping my skin bright and moisturized. I love it!

    wow these products look amazing. I have been thinking about signing up for the box. I am loving the Fitglow line and it has been helping my acne prone skin.

    Hi Jenna! I have recently found your videos and I love your honest approach. Thank you for your informative videos and blog!

    Enjoyed your review of these products! I’m now interested in both of them! I actually have been noticing lately my lips aren’t as plump as they used to be, so this lip serum sounds great! One my favorite skin care lines is Andalou Naturals, due to the affordability and performance, but every now and then I treat myself to some luxury items like, Leahlani, One Love Organics or Osea. Thanks again!
