Beauty Blog Green Beauty Health My Organic Life My Photography Product Reviews Skincare


Gabriel Organics is an incredible company that topped my radar right after I moved out West.  I’ve seen their makeup deck the shelves of Whole Foods here in SoCal and was intrigued when they offered me a few samples to try from their skincare line!  Most of Gabriel Organics products are packed with ingredients from the sea, such as fennel, sea minerals, and seaweed; all natural elements that regenerate and revitalize the body and skin.


Drawing from his grandmother’s homeopathic practices and teachings, Gabriel DeSantino, CEO and Founder of Gabriel Cosmetics, always believed that the sea embodies special healing and revitalizing properties. As a young child, Gabriel frequented his grandmother’s home near the coast of Mexico where he learned the significance of seaweed and kelp. As his curiosity heightened and his passion for healthy living and natural beauty developed, he knew it was his calling to bring these special properties to the forefront and become an advocate for all natural and organic beauty products. By carrying his grandmother’s wisdom for healthy alternatives as he began his beauty empire in 1992, Gabriel developed a vegan and gluten free skincare line, full of sea-derived ingredients called Gabriel Skincare. By using 100% natural ingredients including plant oils, extracts, and botanicals, his high-quality skincare products are non-allergenic and fragrance-free, consisting of a complete collection suited for everyone’s skincare needs.


Gabriel Organics Sea Mineral Tonic ( Review Here) $22.50:

As I said in my last review, I used this toner the entire time I was in NYC and it worked wonders on stress induced breakouts! Now, in the hot sun of Cali, it is a life and skin saver! I spray it on a cotton ball and rub it on my face to tone, even skin, remove makeup, dirt, or to fight aggravated spots! You wouldn’t believe the dirt and crud this picks up when I think my face is clean!  I’ll spare you the before and after!  😛  This Toner/Aromatherapy is definitely a go-to because my skin craves sea minerals and any thing sea-based!  Aloe Vera, Salix Alba Bark Extract, Rosemary & Witch Hazel are the key ingredients and this helped fight acne, truly evens my skin tone, heal blemishes and smells like the sea!


This product contains Tocopherol, which is another word for Vitamin E.  Vitamin E has been unquestionably proven to assist the skin in various ways and has a very beneficial effect to help prevent premature aging.  Vitamin E also assists in treating and preventing diseases of the heart and blood vessels including hardening of the arteries, leg pain, chest pain due to blocked arteries, and high blood pressure.


Gabriel Organics White Seaweed Calming Cleanser  $22.50

It’s simple, it works, and it’s practically unscented!  This gentle formula leaves skin refreshed, clean, and the papaya gives it just the right amount of exfoliation so that it rinses off dead skin cells, giving my face a young, dewey look.  This super affordable formula will make you happy you chose a healthy alternative!  Aloe, almond and White Seaweed extract make the perfect combination of super soft but effective!  Skin maintains it’s natural Ph Balance, and you get a happy, healthy glow!



Gabriel Organics Red Seaweed Gentle Exfoliator – Review Here – $28.50

I am so, so grateful for the Red Seaweed Exfolatior!  My skin has come a long, long way since using it!  When I first started this regime, I was fighting a huge bout of stress-induced and hormonal breakouts.  Now, I’m proud to show off my bare face!  This sits on my bathroom sink as my go-to exfoliator for removing dirt, oil & makeup and getting a gentle cleanse after a long day of work, and I often take it into the shower with me too for an extra polish!  It is an exceptional skin renewer: containing natural bamboo powder enriched with sweet almond oil and Vitamin E that thoroughly cleanse the skin while gently soothing and refining surface texture.  Red seaweed and elderberry flower extract trigger collagen development, offering your skin regenerating effects.  A little goes a very long way!  The gentle grains exfoliate and cleanse, leaving skin with a fresh and natural glow! This bottle has already lasted me forever and it looks like I barely touched it when I use it every day!


Gabriel Organics Seaweed Nourishing Moisturizer – $26.70

This is another product that I have used a TON of that looks like I’ve barely touched it!  A little goes a very, very long way!  I guarantee with the right amount of use this little bottle could last you 6 -12 months!  It’s an all natural, protective, all purpose moisturizer with the nourishing benefits of seaweed and with Vitamins C & E.  With this formula, powerful anti-oxidants and free-radical neutralizers help protect and insulate skin from premature signs of aging, and blue green algae and rosehip seed oil smooth skin texture and encourage natural cell regeneration.  As well as the super important ingredients featured on the front, I love that this contains Organic Macadamia Integrifolia Seed Oil, as well as Almond Oil, Shea Butter and Cucumber Extract!  To me, the scent is really calming and the moisturizer sinks very quickly into my skin.  No grease – no mess – no clogged pores!  A girl’s moisturizer dream! 🙂


Gabriel Organics also makes makeup, which I am still dying to try, as well as Nail Polish, Kids Stuff & more!
