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.
