Blissoma: Possibly the Most Natural (and Affordable!) Skincare Line Yet


As a green beauty blogger, I get a lot of pitches, and I’d say a solid 70% of them are from companies that don’t really even know what ‘natural’ means. Hey, it’s a somewhat ambiguous word, and certainly not one you can trust to mean anything on a label. Hence, the requests I get to review products that contain parabens, harsh fragrances and other toxins. It’s like they think adding some essential oil or herbs to a conventional product makes it ‘eco’.

That’s why companies like Irie Star are so refreshing. Their ‘Blissoma’ skincare line is about as natural as it gets, short of creating your own homemade products. It’s all 100% natural and vegetarian, and all ingredients are disclosed – no hiding behind vague words like “fragrance”.

Furthermore, every ingredient has an active purpose – you won’t find fillers that are just there to give the formula an attractive color or texture. Instead it’s got ingredients that smell fantastic, like frankincense and bergamot, but also provide benefits for the skin.

I got to try out the ‘Fresh – Mild Rice Cleanser’ and ‘Smooth – A+ Moisture Serum’. The cleanser is gentle and mild, moisturizing without a greasy feel. Some people might not be crazy about the texture, which is sort of thin with little bits of natural exfoliants, but it works, and that’s really what matters, isn’t it?

The light and toning moisture serum is just the balancing act that my somewhat breakout-prone, ruddy combination skin needs – its antibacterial, anti-inflammatory ingredients clear the pores while jojoba provides light moisture. Maybe a little too light, if you’ve got dry spots – I mixed in some of my regular moisturizer as needed.

And guess what? Blissoma products are actually affordable. Almost everything, from their intense moisturizer for aging skin to their lightweight spray-on lotion, is under $20 – and you can get a starter set of four full-sized products for a one-time-only deal of $25.

  1. Wow, sounds like an awesome line – I will have to check it out. I’m always looking for products like this that won’t totally break the bank 🙂

  2. I just ordered the starter kit…cannot believe it is such a good price! I can’t wait to try it out!

  3. Hello everyone!
    Just wanted to let folks know that as of 1/15/10 the price of the skincare intro sets went up to $50. The Introductory Sets got such good response that we decided to keep a deal around longer term, but the $25 price was never meant to be a forever thing. The price of the sets now also includes free shipping since it is above our $40 free shipping minimum.

    Thanks ever so much for all your support! We appreciate it greatly. The website has also gotten some updates in the last few days – bit of a facelift!

    We definitely will be offering occasional promotions to mailing list subscribers, so if you want to keep up-to-date about that just join the list and you’ll get info on special deals.
