From website & jar: After cleansing, massage into face and neck.
What I did: Similar to the Face Oasis Hydrating Treatment, I like to get the product and dab it around my face. Then I would pat it in and let sink it into my skin by itself.
Comes in a square jar. However, the product is only contained in a small portion of the square jar itself so it wastes a lot of extra packaging. It has 1.7fl oz or 50mL of product. Like what I’ve said about other jarred products, it doesn’t bother me that it’s in a jar so much because of germs but more because I don’t like getting products under my nails. But nothing Q-tips doesn’t solve. =P
H2O+ website or store
1.7 fl oz / 50 mL for USD$36
-Absorbs quickly (I like to pat it in)
-Helped me through the harsh winter winds and allergy season
-Didn't break me out
-Lasted me quite some time (a few months using it nightly). Unlike the Face Oasis Hydrating Treatment this Night Oasis Oxygenating Rejuvenator was of a thicker consistency..similar to cream but more gel like, if that makes sense. So I didn’t grab as much product as I did with thinner consistency gel moisturizers.
-Can be difficult to get for some. There aren’t too many store locations.
-On the pricey side.
-Like other H2O+ products, the scent needs a bit getting use to. Smells very sea-watery.
-Leaves a bit of a residue on my hands after applying (But I find with a lot of other products so I’m probably just being too picky =X Nothing tissues or water can’t take care of). But on the face once this sinks it I couldn’t even tell I had anything on my face.
-It is called night oasis so I assume it’s for night use only. This didn't bother me much since I bought it in a gift set and there was another moisturizer I could use for mornings. But for those tight on money and such and want a moisturizer for morning and night I’m not sure if this is alright to use in the morning.
-Has silicones and parabens
-Has salt and sea salt in it o_O;; This might not be too good for dry skin? I’m not sure if there’s enough salt in here to dry skin out though…It didn’t for me so just a heads-up for others.
I’m not sure how well the minimizing fine lines part work because I don't those yet (I hope..)
Also I didn’t particularly pay much attention to the anti-dullness and tiredness properties it claims because I was more interested in its moisturizing abilities =X So I can’t vouch for those specific claims!
Maybe. It is only a night time product so unless I don’t find anything better this coming winter and my skin is in desperate need I will go to this since I know it worked for me before.
Maybe. I did like this product. However, I wasn’t really aware of the salt that it contained. I think it might be a problem for some skin types but I’m not too sure. It worked pretty well for me but everyone’s skin is different. Unless you Google more about salt in skincare (I haven’t heard much about it yet..) before you make the purchase it might be safer to stay away from it just in case since it isn’t a particularly low-priced product.
