Ever since my experience with the Bliss Oxygen Facial at the Bliss Spa, I seem to be attracted to many oxygen related skin care treatments and products. Philosophy is a brand loved by many and I’ve also had few good experiences with their products so I was definitely intrigued by Philosophy The Oxygen Peel.
What this product is formulated to do:
Detoxify, rejuvenate, and replenish your complexion with a deep “breath” of oxygen. This renewing treatment helps to counter breakouts and congestion while minimizing signs of aging and sun damage. The complexion takes on new radiance, becomes more receptive to subsequent treatments, and “breathes” in a dose of refreshment. Try this treatment if you are a fan of in-office medical peels or if you have a big event coming up that requires a stunningly luminous look.
This $50USD kit is good for 10 oxygen peels. I’ve read reviews where people complained about there being not enough of Oxygen Foam for 10 peels and also people claiming there are more than enough Oxygen Foam for 10 or more peels. There were also people claiming that they were able to use one Catalase Enzyme capsule for 2 peels instead of the suggested one peel. And these types of reviews where the reviewers clearly didn’t follow instructions and/or decided to implement the instructions to their liking were often the same reviews that complained about this products not being effective and/or not as effective as claimed by other users. My point here is that it is very important to follow instructions provided when using a skin treatment kit that involves various steps.
Philosophy The Oxygen Peel requires four main steps: 1. making the Catalase Enzyme gel, 2. applying the Enzyme gel on the face, 3. applying the Oxygen Foam on top of the Enzyme gel on the face, 4. scraping off the gel and foam mixture off the face using the provided spatula to follow by rinsing off all residue. These four steps are simple enough and along with the pictured step by step instructions that’s on the box of this kit, it’s not difficult at all. However, if you are type of person that’s bad at following instructions and/or don’t like to read instructions prior to using products, this is one kit where following instructions is essential!
