{Product Review} Oxygenetix Foundation

oxy-mainhome2

If I had to describe this treatment foundation in a few words, they would be: Best Foundation I’ve ever used.
I’ve highlighted treatment above, as Oxygenetix is not just another base for your make up.

“Oxygenetix is a breakthrough foundation used to cover, help heal and minimize – even eliminate – procedural scars”

I started using this foundation when my skin was particularly bad, I had just started new medication and I couldn’t get the hormonal breakouts under my jaw line to calm down. As much as other foundations were covering up the embarrassing situation on my face, they were aggravating the problem. I was at my wits end. I then started reading rave reviews on twitter and was desperate to try it. I met Justine Cambell, the sales and marketing manager of oxygenetix and she kindly gave me a bottle to try. To say my skin has never been better is un understatement. My breakouts slowly started to improve and my skin overall had an amazing glow to it. I slept with the foundation on more time that I should have and didn’t wake up with that feeling of a dirty face and clogged pores. In fact I read on the website “if left on it works its magic all night long while you sleep” (*please note that I in no way advocate sleeping with make-up on at all, it is vitally important to wash and treat your skin every night.) I started off building this foundation quite heavily, but after 2 weeks less was more. (I didn’t take a before and after photo, but I am definitely repurchasing this foundation so will put one up then!)

Minimising downtime and scarring following surgery was the principle of importance when Barry Knapp formulated and developed Oxygenextix Breathable Foundation. Oxygenetix is applied right after a very aggressive procedure and not only helps the healing process, but makes you less self conscious when you walk out the treatment room, as your skin looks normal.

Lets get down to why this foundation is so incredible:
- stimulates cell growth
- safe on all skin types
- immediately soothes and cools upon application, making it perfect to use post peel
- spf 25 (physical block)
- water resistant – great for the beach in summer and will stay on for upto 90 minutes of swimming
- transfer resistant
- non irritating
- the only foundation that the longer you leave on your skin, the more benefits your skin has
- in essence, it is a breathable second skin
- non comedogenic
- fragrance free
- made using organically certified ingredients

Oxygenetix Breathable Foundation has 14 different shades for all skin types. 7 Blue based shades and 7 yellow based shades.
