The first step for a healthy skincare regimen is with a clean foundation. Start with one of our newest cleansers, Savant or Bask, to build your sensitive, dry skin routine.


Our Wave Toning Essence is an all-in-one, alcohol-free jelly toner, effectively rebalancing your skin's pH after cleansing while tightening pores with rose water, helichrysum and chamomile extracts.


Lock in the hydration and add intense, moisture with our best-selling, customer favorite, De Palma Facial Oil. Powerful. Lightweight. And Refreshing.

It's become so popular in my home that I now have to fight my fiancé over who gets to use the De Palma Hydrating and Clarifying Facial Oil in the morning.

This oil is amazing and smells wonderful! It's super hydrating without making my skin feel slick. Definitely going to buy the full size next!


I love the consistency, the smell, and the color. The product doesn’t absorb on to the cotton ball, which lets me know that it will all be absorbed on my skin. It doesn’t leave a sticky residue like other toners I have tried. And the results so far are amazing! I’ve been using for about two weeks now and my skin has been so hydrated and smooth. Definitely one of my favorite buys this year!


My go-to toner is by the Black-owned skincare brand Ode to Self, and it’s called Wave. I use it because it’s packed full of nutrients for your skin, including vitamin C, which is a superhero for your skin. I’m 45 and always looking for ways to reduce fine lines.

Danika Berry Who What Wear

I haven’t gotten back to wearing a full face of makeup on a daily basis but when I do, I like to double cleanse with the Ode to Self Bask Cleansing Balm. I don’t typically use oils in my routine because I have very congested skin, but I saw that Ode to Self has a balm and the brand has really beautiful packaging — sometimes I’ll buy things just because I’m excited about them. I was a bit wary about the balm at first, but because it has salicylic acid to target breakouts, my skin likes it.
