H20+ Face Oasis Dual-Action Exfoliating Cleanser and Hydrating Treatment - pics, swatches, reviews

Hello, Beautiful!

I recently tested out two products from the brand H20+, their Face Oasis Dual-Action Exfoliating Cleanser and their Face Oasis Hydrating Treatment. I was really impressed with both products, but especially impressed with the Face Oasis Hydrating Treatment.

Face Oasis Dual-Action Exfoliating Cleanser

H20+ Face Oasis Dual-Action Exfoliating Cleanser Info & Review:
Cost/Availability: $25.00 (4 fl oz full size). Available on the H20+ website and everywhere else H20+ products are sold. Click here to find a retailer near you.
My Rating: 4.5 out of 5 Kisses

An exfoliating fusion of fruit enzymes and marine algae helps sweep away dull surface cells, leaving skin luminous and ready to receive maximum moisture. Non-abrasive exfoliants renew the skin's surface without irritation. Moisture-rich marine botanicals provide deep oil-free hydration for visibly smooth, radiant skin.

I thought this cleanser had a nice refreshing scent, although I can't really describe it. The texture was nice for an exfoliating cleanser. It had tiny exfoliating beads in a gel-like cleanser. Gentle, yet effective.

This not only got my skin clean, but made it smooth. Gentle enough to use daily.

I'd recommend checking this out!

Face Oasis Hydrating Treatment

H20+ Face Oasis Hydrating Treatment Info & Review:
Cost/Availability: $36.00 (1.7 fl oz full size). Available on the H20+ website and everywhere else H20+ products are sold. Click here to find a retailer near you.
My Rating: 5 out of 5 Kisses!

Hydrating marine botanicals rapidly replenish depleted skin and fill surface lines with a surge of moisture. Multivitamins A and E help skin resist daily damage from environmental stress. Phospholipid microspheres deliver time-released hydration to keep skin looking revitalized all day.

This had a nice light scent, and again, I can't really describe the scent. It is a cooling, hydrating gel. It almost feels like cool water going on your skin, absorbing quickly. It hydrates without being greasy - perfect for those of use with oily skin, but great for anyone.

This is a product I highly recommend!

Me personally, well I never had much luck using these. I think my mouth is just too small for these or something, but I can never cut them right to fit me no matter how precise I try to be. Maybe I will get better at it over time, but they're not my favorite thing in the world to use because of how frustrated I become trying to size them on my lips.

An alternative use, which is great for those that don't like it on their lips, is to use these as temporary tattoos on your body.

I do like the styles they offer; I think that is fantastic and a lot of them appeal to me. They're fun for parties, concerts, sporting events, and some (like the glitter versions) for everyday use.

As far as application goes, besides the fact it doesn't really match up to my lip shape, it is fairly easy. You simply pop out the top lip and measure to fit. Follow the instructions and you'll be good to go. Use a pencil or pen to mark where you need to cut and always double check before cutting. It's always best to cut and have it be too large than to cut and after realize you cut off too much.

I don't like the way they feel on my lips; very heavy feeling, uncomfortable and dry. You need to use a lip balm or gloss over top or they will feel super dry. The designs will also crack.

They say they can last up to 8 hours, but I find that to be a stretch -- unless you don't plan to eat, drink, or talk much. I say they're best for a 1 to 4 hour wear period of time.

If I don't keep these to use on my lips or as temporary tattoos on my body, I plan to give them away on my blog.

I do think these are worth checking out!
