When Heather introduced us to this incredible new skincare range recently, we, of course, had to take it very seriously. She’s one of our finest makeup artists in LA and truly knows beauty like no other! Heather sang the praises of the brand’s O2 kit, which immediately had us so intrigued, we asked her to write up a post detailing her experience. Keep reading for all of Heather’s insights into this high-end oxygen facial and the crazy benefits it can have for your skin – plus a chance to win one of your own!
“As a makeup artist, people often ask me for my best tip regarding makeup application. I always say that the best makeup application actually has nothing to do with makeup itself, rather it is the skincare routine that is most important. Makeup application without a skincare routine is like a Broadway show without a stage manager.
Your skin is your canvas of which to paint upon, and it is far easier to create a masterpiece with your makeup products on a smooth canvas. A smooth canvas starts with amazing skincare products and the consistent routine it takes for the products to fully work.
In the last few weeks, I have had a number of people comment on how radiant my skin was looking. I, of course, said thank you and then went on to unabashedly exploit my new favorite skincare product – Camille Obadia’s Oxygenation Kit O2.
The Oxygenation Kit O2 is basically a high-end DIY facial. The kit is a three-step process that takes less than half an hour from start to finish. The first step is a quick peel mask that exfoliates and purifies the skin. The second step asks you to apply a thick layer of the oxygenation cream to nourish the skin. The third step is a serum soaked mask compress, which stays on for roughly 15-25 minutes (depending on your skin type, which you can find in the brochure that comes with the kit).
The website offers a video tutorial to teach you exactly what you are supposed to be doing, given it is a DIY facial.
The first time I tried the kit, I did so in the evening and went to sleep soon thereafter, leaving the remaining cream from step three on, to absorb into my skin more as I slept. I awoke the next morning with the softest skin I have ever had – I mean, at least since I was a baby!
The line was formulated in France, and who doesn’t love luxurious items from France?! Best of all, many of the ingredients are formulated from fruits, vegetables, and minerals, and there are no parabens in the products.
For me, this kit was a game changer for my canvas and I am so happy that Stylisted is giving a kit away!”
