It’s Saturday morning and w no work responsibilities I dedicate Dragonia’s morning nap to my skin. I usually do a mask and do my nails or read gossip magazines. yeah ok I’m a new parent: I’m prob going to be cleaning or doing laundry or boring adult stuff BUT ILL BE DAMNED IF I MISS OUT ON MASK TIME! During the past month I’ve been testing @drbrandt Flash Recovery Oxygen Mask which I received #freewithoctoly. For the newbie @octoly is a platform for bloggers where if you have an established following you can apply to get products and review them. However my opinions remain my own cause I still have a conscience.
The good: it’s quick, it takes about 5 min which is great since i would like to do other things with my life. Upon application it doesn’t burn or sting which means my sensitive skin accepts it, it immediately starts foaming up with a tingle and after a few minutes, it settles into the skin but you do have to wash it off. I feel it energizes my skin, it almost feels like its been woken up and it has a mild exfoliating function. The not so good: its costly, its $70 for 1.4 oz which in my book is normal for skincare but more and more brands are releasing products at a lower price point that do the same thing
The mcMeh: it is not life changing. its been 20 days since i have been testing this and i don’t feel my skin completely overhauled, which is ok; I have learned with skin (and sensitive skin at that), the process is slow and it should be) anything claiming to completely change your skin overnight is probably abrasive, i am going to give this a few more weeks but i will probably end up passing it onto my mother or my bffs to try, after all: things could very well work extremely well on them too.
to keep in mind: products are not a miracle item, they shouldn’t claim to be- your skin should not ever only depend on one item, which is why i always speak of a skincare regimen, its how you cleanse, tone, mask, how you exfoliate, moisturize, the things you drink and eat.. and not everyone will have the same reaction. This is still my opinion and you may have found this to be your HG; but if it was me I would hold my coins.
