The easy way to clear skin with OXY® #giveaway

oxy cleansing padsOXY® skin care has a whole new look and a whole new line. I have a teen daughter, so I’m familiar with acne care, for sure. I also have a tween son who is rapidly approaching adolescence. This summer I have been encouraging him to start taking care of his skin so that he’ll have good habits under his belt once those little breakouts start. I’ve noticed some whitehead-type places on his cheeks, which I guess are clogged pores, which could lead to acne, so now seems like the right time.

I just barely have him convinced that brushing his teeth — with toothpaste — is hygiene to be done twice a day, so each night I’ve had to remind him to wash his face. When I was offered the chance to review two new OXY® products, I knew that the OXY® Daily Defense Cleansing Pads were a perfect solution! When I first started encouraging my daughter to focus on skincare, the ease of a pre-moistened cleansing pad meant that she didn’t have any excuses.

And it’s working for my son, too! The first night I showed him how to use it. The directions state you can use it once or twice a day. Since Kyle is still young and not having a lot of problems, I told him that we’d start doing it every night. The second night, I forgot to remind him, so the next morning, I said, “Don’t forget to clean your face.” He corrected me, saying, “Only once a day. I did it last night.”

“You remembered without me telling you? And you did it?” I asked, amazed. And he had! If that’s not a testimonial, I can’t offer you anything better than that.

I was also sent another new product, OXY® Maximum Action Sensitive Advanced Face Wash, and I was excited to try it out myself. I still have some hormonal outbreaks, although they aren’t as bad now (in my 40’s) as when I was in my 30’s. What is irritating to me is that once the blemish fades, it takes a while for the spot to totally go away. I was hoping that the OXY face wash would speed that process along, and it did. After using it for 3 days, I noticed a definite improvement! The sensitive skin formula is probably appropriate for a woman of my age, because I haven’t had any dryness or irritation, but it’s still doing what it’s meant to do.

I won’t use this daily, but I will definitely use it cyclically to prevent and treat breakouts. It seemed to do the trick.

I am so happy that I had the opportunity to revisit this product, and am glad to pass along the opportunity to one of you as well.
