Some of you may know that there was a Korean beauty expo this month at Kintex. I was never able to go to any in the past, but this time with choir and work I was able to go on Sunday morning, but just for a couple of hours. I just wanted to network with companies so I can test their products. I ended up walking away with massive bags filled with samples and masks, some feminine hygiene products and more. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to buy anything because they on accepted cash, and I only had my debit card with me.
My very first experience there is with a company called Oxygen Ceuticals. A girl at the booth approached me with some samples and started small talk. I briefly mentioned to her that I am a blogger and that I can review some of their products for them if she were interested. She then said: Oh, yes, we are looking for someone to work with. They then asked me whether I’d be willing to have them perform a skin care treatment for me, and off course, I was game.
They made me lie down on a bed and then proceeded to cover my hair with a towel and remove my makeup. I was a bit concerned about that because I was representing my blog and didn’t want to look like I survived a zombie apocalypse, but they assured me that they’d put some BB cream on afterwards, so it wasn’t a problem. After the makeup removal they messaged a serum into my skin. I don’t know if was perhaps to get rid of the excess makeup.
The first step of the actual treatment was an application of a foam like cream. They massaged this into my face, after placing cotton swabs over my eyes.
In between sessions they would wipe my face clean with pink egg shaped sponges. They then used a tool that looks like a massive injection. They used it to blow oxygen all over my face. There was a young lady who kindly explained to me what they were doing and telling me to remain calm, but that the oxygen would be really cold. Honestly, it felt amazing. The lady started off by doing only one half of my face and then the other to show me the firm and lifting effects of the oxygen.
After that they placed these little light blocking sunglasses over my eyes and told me not to be alarmed. They then proceeded to place a massive mask over my face and continued to explain that this was infrared light and that I shouldn’t open my eyes. It looks scarier in the photos that it felt to me, but I suppose it can be scary if you suffer from claustrophobia, which luckily I don’t.
Here are the
They then painted a coat of cream onto my skin. I mean literally painted it on with a brush, which I thought was pretty cool actually. They then cover my eyes with cotton pads, and placed gauze over my face. You can already tell that my skin looks really healthy and in a good condition. It wasn’t in a super bad state to begin with but I could definitely tell my skin felt tighter and looked cleaner with less visible pores.
They used the infra red light on my skin because I don’t have a problem skin at all. Here are some of the options you have though:
And here is the final step where they started packing a rather heavy yogurt like substance onto the gauze. I was so sleepy at this point, I didn’t want them to wake me up. haha.
Here are the last images during and after the gauze and white paste was removed.
Here are some of the pictures I took from the brochure:
Here is their more technical explanation of how their equipment and products work and why they are successful.
This is an example of a patient with severe burning and an explanation as to why their products and treatments work.
And this is the machine they use.
I’ve always had the idea that oxygen is good for you internally and externally. These products worked on me, as I am sure they will on you. Don’t worry if your skin is not in a great condition. They will do an evaluation of your skin and they will be able to establish exactly which treatments and products are best for your individual needs.
I highly recommend this to anyone who has acne, scarring, severe burning, or someone like me who just wants to take proper care of their skin.
I have also been gifted a stash of cream and sunscreen samples to try for you. So keep your eyes peeled for that.
Till next time, from a chilly Seoul.
