Curtain Call: H2O+ BEAUTY Oasis Hydrating Treatment

Hey guys! Hope you’re all having a great weekend so far! Today’s post is on a product I got from my ipsy April 2018 Glam Bag. Here’s my thoughts on the H2O+ BEAUTY Oasis Hydrating Treatment.

H2O+ BEAUTY Oasis Hydrating Treatment

Stated from their website:

    WHAT IT IS:
    This water-gel moisturizer instantly quenches skin and provides ongoing moisture. Clinically proven to more than double skin’s hydration and hydrates skin for 24 hours.

    KEY BENEFITS:
    This innovative lightweight formula absorbs rapidly and is great for dry to oily skin types. It features a high-performance formula powered by dual-hydration technology that combines replenishing actives to add moisture while attracting additional hydration, plus protecting actives that support skin’s barrier to preserve moisture.

What I love about this product? The product itself is a clear blue gel in appearance. It looks to be very hydrating (makes me think of water droplets!) and has a light marine or sea themed scent. I use a generous dollop of this (it is not watery but not thick like a lotion — somewhere in between, like a gel bead droplet almost) and patted it gently all over my face with my fingertips. I use this as my step 4 in the Korean 10-step skin routine I’ve been doing for months now. If you apply too much of it, it will feel sticky on your face so go easy when you’re using it for the first time. It absorbs really quickly into my skin and has a cooling feel to my face. It feels quite refreshing. I’ve used this product for over a month (love how long it lasts) and I love how light it is while keeping my skin supple.

What I don’t like about this product? Nothing really. I have since moved on to trying out several other products for the facial serum step ever since I ran out of this and this is still one of the best I’ve tried.

More information on this item and other products the brand carries is available on their website here.

ipsy April 2018 Glam Bag

I know this is late but I had taken the pictures already so we’ll go ahead with it anyway. Here’s what I got in my ipsy April 2018 Glam Bag.

I LOVE this bag! It’s quite beautiful really. I saved it to give it to my MIL. It makes me think of mothers for some reason (I think it might be the rose gold and the butterflies?). The first item that caught my eye is the H2O+ BEAUTY Oasis Hydrating Treatment. I’m very much into skincare right now so this is right up my alley. Next is the Purlisse Coconut Oil + Coffee Sugar Body Scrub. I love body scrubs so this went straight into my shower. Then we have the Smashbox Cosmetics Always On Liquid Lipstick. I’m still debating if I want to keep this or not. The shade is called Miss Conduct and I’m not sure if it suits me or not (plus, I have a ton of lip products already). Next we have the Manna Kadar Eye Candy Priming Shadow Stick. The shade I got is called S’more. Last up is a Steve Laurant Blush. TI’ve never heard of this brand before but it seems like it would be a really nice blush. The shade I got this in is called Rosé All Day. The other shade some others got is called I’m Blushing.

Overall, I’m very pleased with what I got — especially the bag! I hope next month’s bag continues this trend!
