Oxygenetix


Ok so here is my Review of Oxygenetix but first I copied the description of it from Lovelyskin so you know what I'm talking about.

Oxygenetix Oxygenating Foundation

This foundation contains Ceravitae Complex, a patent-pending formula proven to increase oxygen uptake, stimulate skin cell production and speed the healing process following most procedures. Oxygenetix Oxygenating Foundation gives complete and natural coverage to even the most sensitive and compromised skin and is a truly breathable makeup.

When applied over Oxygenating Moisturizer, Oxygenating Foundation acts as a virtual second-skin, allowing it to breathe as necessary for functional human wound healing of the skin. This second skin technology creates a delivery system allowing Ceravitae to:

1) speed connective tissue reconstruction
2) systematically build collagen layers
3) reinforce natural skin healing.

The Results:
1) Less down time
2) Complete, undetectable coverage from day one
3) reduced scar tissue
4) continuous protecting with continued use.

Oxygenetix Foundation is also:
* Water Resistant up to 90 minutes
* SPF 25
* 7 Blendable, Color-corrective shades
* Transfer Resistant
* Hypoallergenic
* Completely non-irritating, even to acne, rosacea, psoriasis, or eczema


Ok so I had read all sorts of things about this being the New "Dermacia MD" so since I absolutely love Dermacia MD I figured I would like this. I have acne prone skin and huge pores and only Dermacia MD has really worked to cover up and at the same time heal my acne with Salicylic Acid. I just ran out of my Dermacia MD and figured I'll order Oxygenetix instead. Well I got my order and I am not sold on it. For one I ordered the beige which I use in Dermacia and find that the Oxygenetix is a little orangy and has to be blended extremely well. It even seems to get more orangy throughout the day. It also does nothing to cover my pores or any blemishes, not sure when the "complete and natural coverage" comes in but I didn't like the coverage it was more of a tinted moisturizer then a foundation. It was not cheap either at $66 a bottle. It may be a good option for someone who wants a oxygenating foundation but has smooth skin already. I have since ordered my Dermacia and plan to blend it with the oxygenetix so that I didn't totally waste my money. Also I figured I'll finish the bottle and see if it does anything as far as making my skin any better, it claims that its ingredients do wonders for all skin types. I am just wondering how this foundation covers burns and how it works as a post procedure care foundation. I cannot see it covering much as it doesn't cover my blemishes too well. So to break it down I listed my pro's and con's.

Pro's:
Non-Irritating to my skin which is a major Plus because I have sensitive skin
Non-drying, which in the winter my skin is very dry in areas
Ingredients seem to have some benefits for the skin

Con's:
Doesn't give me good coverage (which I was looking for)
Beige Color was orangy on my Medium toned skin

So it didn't work for me but if you want to try it for yourself they sell it at Lovelyskin. I would read their return policy, I think they will let you exchange it if you are dissatisfied but there's a 15% restocking fee.

Not my experience at all. I just had a laser resurfacing procedure that made my face raw. My physician applied Oxygenetix foundation right after and it not only immediately reduced the discomfort I felt, the next day using this amazing camouflaging foundation I was able to go out and no one was the wiser that I had had a procedure done just the day before. Since then I have done some homework and discovered that it was invented by the same person, Barry Knapp, who invented Lycogel years ago. Apparently this is the latest development and it is being used by "A" list Hollywood Celebs for the last couple of years. They seem to have discovered it after various procedures and continued to use it for the health benefits to the skin. I have been using it now for 7 months and would never go back to my old foundation.

My skin has never looked or felt better. Even the once in a while bouts with acne have stopped. I am truly impressed and happy with this product. Since your main issue is with the color you might have the wrong color. I'm using a blue base color I tried a tester of what I thought was my color. It was yellow base and clashed with my skin tone.

I should also mention that Dermacia MD was also a Barry Knapp product developed years ago and I understand from my estetician is the same thing as Lycogel.

I also want to comment. I did not have any procedures done but I have a skin disorder that makes my skin red, itchy and sensitive. Once I developed this I tried everything and Oxygenetix was and continues to be the only foundation that I can use. It actually got rid of the redness and soothed my skin. I will never go back to anything else. As the other reviewer stated, my skin has never looked or felt better. The coverage is wonderful giving a flawless finish. This is the best foundation on the market and everyone should use it for its benefits even if your not having a procedure or have skin problems as I do.

I would also like to comment. First of all the colors are NOT the same as Dermacia or Dermacia MD. I used beige when using Dermacia and now I use Creme in the Oxygnetix. My color is not orange at all and it DOES NOT change colors by the end of the day. It remains as beautiful as it was when I first put it on. Its a little thinner than Dermacia but I like that and it glides on beautifully unlike Dermacia which was on the thick and dry side. You can build onto it if you want more coverage. I have had no procedures done but I use it every day because I love it and it hides my pores and makes me look as if I have flawless skin. Trendy Girl, you really need to find the correct color for your skin. Lovelyskin.com sells little sample sizes that you can purchase to determine which color is best. Oxygenetix is the best foundation that I have ever used and its a lot better than Dermacia. By the way, I have acne prone and sensitive skin and Oxygenetix has never caused a breakout. I have been using it for over a year now.

I am a tough customer and bought the 150 dollar LA Mer and Sisley foundations but they were too oily and broke me out even more. At first, I too, was not convinced about Oxygenetix, but I keep working with it and I realized you have to put it on slowly and build on it. I have severe acne and this has been super. I use a foundation brush and it makes all the difference, now I am loving it. Color is crucial make sure it is right or it will turn on you and just be ALL wrong. Hope this helps.

This stuff is absolute junk. it's a thicker tinted spf moisturizer. I have tried 2 different colors and tried dilluting it with the company's own moisturizer and it still either looks plastered on or if I get it thin enough not to look that way, there is little coverage. Terrible product
