Body Care That Actually Makes Me Feel Good About Myself? I’m Sold On OUI The People

In partnership with OUI the People. 

I have a love/hate relationship with beauty products. On one hand, it feels good to take care of myself and to use items that make my skin healthy. On the other hand, I really disagree with the way many beauty brands choose to market their products (usually in an almost passive aggressive way, making women feel so ashamed of how they look that they’ll buy anything to “fix” themselves). 

And contrary to what my husband might tell you, I’m also a bit of a minimalist when it comes to beauty purchases…my toiletry bag probably has like twelve things in it! I really try to invest in quality products that leave me feeling and looking my best with as little effort as possible. That’s why I was intrigued when I discovered OUI the People, a new-to-me beauty brand that has a simple lineup of high performance body care that makes you feel good in the skin you’re in.

Words Matter

The brand’s founder, Karen Young, tells a great story about marketing and how brands – particularly beauty brands – have the power to influence culture and language. Despite what we’ve been reading in magazines for years, beauty doesn’t have to “come at the expense of our psyche.” In other words, we don’t need to be pursuing unattainable flawlessness (whatever that even means) or perfection. We just need products that work and make us feel good. She built OUI the People on this foundation and set out to reconstitute beauty with high quality products that feel great on your skin.

Love the skin you're in, but take care of it too

High-Powered Products That Work For You

Hands down, my favorite OUI the People product is the Featherweight Hydrating Body Gloss ($65). This ultralight yet deeply moisturizing serum delivers in a big way. I love using it right out of the shower – with ingredients like squalane, rosehip seed oil, avocado oil, and pomegranate oil, it brightens, heals, and soothes the skin. 

Another current favorite is this Cheatsheet Resurfacing Body Serum ($45) which boasts serious power and is great for overnight rejuvenation. The reparative formula features glycolic acid, lactic acid, salicylic acid and amino acids that aim to smooth rough skin. You can even use it as a spot treatment for ingrown hairs or clogged pores. Talk about a powerhouse.

The single-blade razor everyone is talking about features a weighted stainless steel body to get you the smoothest shave

Your Favorite New Shower Companion

While OUI the People’s body care line is amazing, I’d be remiss to feature this brand without talking about its famous razor. Yes, it’s $75. And yes, it’s that amazing. This single-blade razor is made for even the most sensitive skin and promises that “ingrowns and razor burn are a thing of the past.” Because it’s weighted, you don’t need to use any pressure, meaning that skin irritation basically doesn’t exist. So, I guess you could say it’s… definitely worth it, especially when paired with Sugarcoat ($64), a moisturizing shave gel-to-milk that helps the razor slide seamlessly over your skin.  

Featuring glass bottles and removable caps, OUI the People’s packaging is meant to be used again and again

Packaging For The Planet

It’s refreshing to see so many brands laser focused on sustainability. We’re all in this together, and every little bit counts. According to OUI the People, the personal care industry is one of the largest producers of waste, and the brand is on a mission to change that. Because it’s made of stainless steel, the razor is a much more durable (and recyclable) alternative to plastic razors. Body care products are packaged with recycling and upcycling in mind, with removable tops and vessels that can be refilled over and over again. It all adds up, and I love what this brand is doing to minimize waste across the globe.

From razors to body polishes to moisturizers, I absolutely adore OUI the People. But don’t just take my word for it – try it out for yourself here.
