Late last year I had an Oxyjet facial and was reminded of just how brilliant they can be for tricky skin types such as mine. Oxygen facials basically involve using an oxygenating tool to push product further into the skin without using anything too aggressive, so if you’re sensitive, spot-prone or just have skin that benefits most from a lighter touch, oxygen facials are a winner. The facial I experienced last year was to mark the launch of the Oxyjet Go product, which is a skincare device that allows you to utilise the technology of an oxygen facial in the comfort of your home. I’ve been very lucky to have one to try out, so I’ll be reviewing it in full soon, but in the meantime, here’s a little introduction.
The first thing that has to be mentioned before anything else is the price point. The Oxyjet Go is £895 which is a big ol’ price tag that’ll likely put it outside of most budgets. Having said that, if you’re an oxygen facial convert and you regularly pay for the treatment, this could work out more cost-effective (eventually!) and definitely more convenient. The high price point is not helped by the fact that you are supposed to use two products with the device which of course will run out and need replacing, and to me that’s not ideal; I think if you’re going to spend £895 on a product, that should be your whole expense.
Having said that, I’ve been experimenting with other products and I do find that it works really well with a variety of serums and essences, and my skin looks noticeably calmer and dewier after a quick 5 minute treatment. The problem I have at the moment is that my skin is reacting to everything and breaking out horrifically, so I can’t fully assess the products that come with the device (that are designed to give an optimum treatment) as they break me out (like almost everything else right now) but it does mean I’ve had to think outside the box and I’ve mostly used this with a calming serum that really does make my skin feel and look a lot calmer.
I’ll be using the Oxyjet Go for the next few weeks and I’ll write an in-depth review very soon. Find it out more about it here – link.
