About a month plus ago, Nicole of AiShop sent me the Beauty Talk OxySolution Mousse which came with a trial pack of the OxyMask and OxyAqua. I was actually more interested in the OxyMask – I’d read about the foaming effects and I was curious. So what did I think about the products? Let’s start with the OxySolution Mousse because that’s the full sized bottle.
Beauty Talk OxySolution Mousse (RM79.90/110ml)
This is touted as a makeup remover, cleanser and toner for sensitive skin. It is supposed to be non irritating and does not strip skin of moisture. Looks like a miracle, sounds like a miracle but is it?
I must say it did not work for me as a makeup remover. I don’t wear heavy makeup but it took about 5 pieces of cotton pad to remove my eyeliner and mascara and another 3 pieces of cotton pad to remove the rest of my makeup. That was the 1st day.
On Day 2 I tried applying the mousse straight on my face, and massaging to remove the makeup. After tissuing off, eyeliner and mascara were still present as was residual shimmer. So I stopped using it as makeup remover and went back to my regular removers.
As a cleanser, its not bad. Once I get my makeup removed, the OxySolution Mousse cleans my skin nicely without the slippery feel of most cleansers and does not leave it feeling tight. It does have a watery feel and they say you don’t have to wash it off, but I do. I did not try it as a toner.
Pros: Multitasking product, Does not dry out skin, Feels gentle
Cons: Did not remove my makeup well and efficiently
Credit where its due, I’d take this if I were going away. It multitasks fairly well (provided I carry enough cotton pads) and will help cut down luggage space and weight. At home where I have all my regular products with me, I find it hard to find a space for the Oxysolution Mousse. The OxyMask fares better to me.
Beauty Talk OxyMask (sample) – Full Size RM188.80/50ml
With the OxySolution Mousse came a sample pack of 2 OxyMask and a tube of OxyAqua. I was interested in the mask because it sounds like so much fun! The little sample I had lasted me 2 uses. You are recommended to finish up the sample pack within a week once opened, so I did.
The OxyMask squeezes out a clear gel-like texture. You have to work quickly. Apply this gel all over your face and then sit back. The gel will immediately start to foam up on your skin! The fizzy popping feel of the foam is really fun. Its supposed to be the oxygen at work, delivering oxygen to our skin – dunno how true that is, but this is a bestseller for the brand.
Once all the fizzing and popping has quietened down, wash off the foam mask and moisturize as normal. The OxyAqua gel is adequate for this purpose.
I only had 2 samples – 4 uses so I don’t know how good this OxyMask is in the long term. So if there’s one item in the Beauty Talk brand that has me going “Hmm… maybe I’d like to try that!” it would be the Beauty Talk OxyMask. At RM188.80/50ml I’m not sure about it though.
Pros: Fun, Skin feels soft and moisturized
Have you tried either of these products? Or perhaps you are going “Beauty what?!” Beauty Talk is a brand from Taiwan and you might have seen them around :) Do you have an experience to share with this brand?
