Roxanne

Roxie is leaving Mount Isa on Monday. I only had one night off this week so we raced out to the Lake Moondarra before the sun set and we saw some back-burning on the way back to town before going to get Chinese for dinner.

O Cosmedics Gentle Antioxidant Cleanser Review

Let me start by saying a little background about my skin. I usually have combination skin, oily in my T-zone and get dry patches in winter. I have acne-prone and sensitive skin.

My sister Rachel had this cleanser for awhile in the shower and I was curious to give it a go. First impression, I absolutely love the scent of this! It's not over powering in any way, but I can't quite put my finger on the scent and found I could even smell it throughout the day. I'd been using my sister's for a couple of weeks and it didn't break me out, rather I found my skin becoming more clear and radiant (the mineral foundation I've been using in place of my regular liquid might be helping too).

I went out and bought my own and am absolutely loving it. It doesn't dry my skin out (has shea butter which may help) and doesn't irritate my skin leaving it feeling really clean but not squeaky clean like I've just stripped my face. It's a gel consistency so when you lather it in your hands it gets foamy – which I like in a cleanser. I also really like the packaging, and the pump is handy (I only need two pumps after I pre-cleanse my makeup off).

Here is the description from the O Cosmedics website:
A gentle daily facial cleanser strengthened with powerful antioxidants. Suitable for all skin types including reactive and rosacea skins, post peel, laser and surgery cleansing. Fortified with anti-pollutant boosters that trap & remove dirt and excess sebum. V8 peptide complex™ leaves the skin super hydrated & refreshed.
A daily must have!
Key Ingredients:
  • V8 peptide complex™
  • L-Sodium Hyaluronate
  • Lipochroman-6
  • Niacinamide
  • Snap-8
  • Venuceane™
  • Zeolite
  • Shea Butter

At only $49 a pop, I think it's quite reasonable considering it's an Australian owned & made product. I just bought it from a local beauty salon, and I'm really happy with it so far after using it for a month! Definitely will be going to repurchase this.

Has anyone else tried this product/brand before? I'm keen to get my hands on some other products from this brand because I'm really happy with this cleanser, and being Australian makes it doubly awesome!

Thanks for reading :)

merica

I just started up a second job. Casual waitress/bar work at the local watering hole doing weeknights & weekends. It's pretty good money too, can't go wrong with $32 p/hour on Sundays! I'm still working full time Monday to Friday, 8am till 5pm with my graphic pre-press apprenticeship. I just really needed to knuckle down with saving all my pennies up to buy copious amounts of clothes, makeup, presents from my North American trip come December '14/January '15. Spending Christmas at Disneyland, CA. Seeing Britney Spears live in Vegas on the eve of New Year's Eve. Underwater museum in Cancun, Mexico. New York, New York. Snowboarding/skiing in Whistler, Canada. Eating to my heart & stomach's content in San Francisco. In-N-Out will be a favourite I can just tell now, 4x4 burger & cheese fries, animal style? Why not! I'm going to have to go over there at least 5kgs underweight to even things out when I'm done.

...

The above is a draft from 26/08/14 that I didn't get to finish. So I'm posting it now.

NEXT MONTH AND I'LL BE IN USA/MEXICO/CANADA <3 span="">

I'm getting so excited for the food whenever I think about it I get so happy.
