After two months of daily use the H2O+ Beauty Oasis Hydrating Treatment has easily become one of my all-time favorite daily facial moisturizers without sunscreen!
- The bright blue gel simply looks happy when I apply it in the morning – seriously, it does, it puts a smile on my face just to look at it.
- The gel treatment sinks right into my skin and requires little to no wait time before I start my makeup routine.
- This gel keeps my skin hydrated all-day with no need to re-apply
- None of the ingredients irritate my sensitive skin – no redness, no itchiness, no weird patchy spots (what happens when my skin doesn’t like something)
- The formula does not clog my pores or break me out at all, really, not even blackheads.
- The H2O+ Beauty Oasis Hydrating Treatment can be layered if necessary without causing any tackiness.
- The finish is light, dewy and balmy and on days that I don’t feel like wearing makeup this can be worn alone and gives my complexion a nice youthful glow (glow – not shine –there is a big difference)
Here are some things to think about:
- If you have extremely dry skin this most likely will not be moisturizing enough for yo
- There is fragrance (it is second to last in the ingredient list – which would likely only irritate someone with severe fragrance sensitivity).
- Ugh, jar packaging. I’ve said it a million times, jar packaging is my least favorite because it exposes the products to bacteria (break-outs) and air (which can degrade the efficacy of the formula)
- There is no sunscreen – you will need to apply a separate Sunscreen of SPF 30 for daytime use
Here is the full ingredient list which I’ve pulled directly from the H2O+ Beauty website on 2/25/2017:
