With school back in session for the year, teenagers are taking extra time to choose their clothes and do their makeup before heading out the door. But fall is also a time when breakouts can flare up for many, which can be a tough blow to a young woman’s self-esteem. Even in my thirties, I still deal with hormonal breakouts each month and while they’re usually not severe, they are incredibly frustrating. That’s why OXY Canada has released a new product perfect for helping on-the-go teens ensure that their skin looks its best.
New OXY Emergency Acne Vanishing Treatment Wipes feature an advanced technology that helps control oil and works to fight breakouts all day. The wipes come in a convenient resealable pouch and are meant to be used twice daily after cleansing to help heal existing acne and prevent future breakouts. I received an assortment of OXY products including the new OXY Emergency Acne Vanishing Treatment Wipes to review and I was curious to see how they would work for me.
The wipes have a slightly rough texture and are surprisingly small; each one is only about a quarter of the size of a piece of facial tissue. After washing my face with my regular cleanser, I just used the wipe on my face, paying special attention to my forehead and chin since I’m most prone to breakouts in these areas. Then I finished with my usual moisturizer.
After using the wipes for a few days, I found that they did a great job at healing small acne breakouts, though I didn’t notice a huge difference in the healing time of a large breakout. I also appreciated that the wipes had an alcohol free formula that included oil free moisturizers to ensure that the wipes didn’t dry out my skin and lead to worse breakouts in the future. Some teens don’t need to worry about this too much, but my sensitive skin needs plenty of nourishment even when I’m fighting acne!
