The ‘Oxygen Facial’ in a Jar

Our freelance copywriter Viola Levy has been raving about {Omorovicza}’s new {Oxygen Booster} – a ‘shot’ of liquid oxygen that leaves skin plumped and energised, with wrinkles reduced. She tells us more…

“This product reminds me of the magical eternal youth elixir that Isabella Rossellini gives Goldie Hawn and Meryl Streep in Death Becomes Her (essential camp Christmas viewing if you haven’t seen it) as it’s truly transformed my skin, making me look more like 21 than 31.

Once you hit your thirties you really start to notice a difference in your skin’s texture and tone. I know I’m hardly “old” but my skin doesn’t bounce back the way it used to in my sleep-deprived student days. A caffeine-addiction, chronic insomnia and anxiety-induced stress means that most mornings I’m greeted with a dull complexion and frown lines to rival a Shar-Pei pup. Hence why {Omorovicza’s Oxygen Booster} is my most treasured skin care find in a long while.

Having written about beauty for almost a decade, I know you you’re meant wait at least a good six weeks for a skin care product to prove its mettle. But I’ve never been the patient type – so was pleasantly surprised when the Oxygen Booster bestowed me with a post-facial glow from the get-go. I’ve been a huge fan of {Omorovicza} over the years (I’ve no idea what’s in those magical Hungarian waters that infuse the entire range, but those guys are certainly onto something) and this latest offering is like jump-leads for a dull, tired complexion.

I’m assuming this is down to the potent cocktail of hi-tech, skin-plumping ingredients: nasturtium-derived polysaccharides, regenerating swertia chirata extract and hyaluronic acid (the ultimate quencher for parched skin), together with liquid oxygen and oxygen accelerators. The result? My skin’s got its glow back, it feels firmer and fine lines are all but disappeared. If you don’t have the time or the means for regular oxygen facials, this hardworking wonder potion is the next best thing. (I’d recommend following this up with their famous {Complexion Enhancer} for a delicate layer of coverage, SPF protection and extra slug of anti-ageing benefits.)”
