I love the summer, and don’t get me wrong but while all the running around in the sun is fun, I have oily skin and my pores are more sensitive than ever. And I’m not the only one, when the heat hits all the gals in my household complain about oily skin. For me, oily skin equals acne – so to prevent it we use OXY.
I’m sure you’ve heard of OXY’s products before, I used OXY all through high school to keep dreaded acne at bay. Since then I use their products as a preventative measure – sharing them with Jule’s (my little sis) who get’s beauty and skincare advice from her older sister.
We had a chance to test out OXY’s Daily Defense Exfoliating Body Scrub and their New OXY Daily Defense Sensitive Cleansing Pads. The body scrub has a sharp orange citrus scent – which really makes your skin feel fresh and awake. It’s clinically proven to treat and help prevent breakouts. It contains 1% of Salicyclic Acid, and personally has really helped with some minor backne (back acne) that I’ve been experiencing. Also, I used a cheap razor on my legs and after using the scrub the redness and irritation the razor had caused to my skin went away almost immediately – so that’s definitely a plus!
I know a lot of acne products on the market tend to be really harsh and drying – enter OXY’s new Daily Defense Sensitive Cleansing Pads. Because they are formulated for sensitive skin, the pads do a great job of cleaning up oily, clogges pores. Jules and I are in love with these pads – they don’t leave our skin feeling tight after using them – instead they leave our skin feeling noticabley cleaner. My forehead tends to turn into an oil slick during the summer months – so this product is a lifesaver for me!
Do you have acne? Does your skin also get oily and especially sensitive during the hot summer months? Let me know! Meanwhile, OXY has decided to offer one lucky NYC Talon reader both of the OXY products that I got to try – the OXY’s Daily Defense Exfoliating Body Scrub and their New OXY Daily Defense Sensitive Cleansing Pads!
