Oxy recently released a new collection of products, and while you might not think they're new and different, they actually are new and different. Why is that? Looking at the list of ingredients, you'll see the old stand-by ingredients benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid. Yes, these two have been out a long time. But, you know what? Not much is really going to change in over the counter acne treatment. And those two ingredients really do work.
The "new and different" part of Oxy Clinical is that the products are all formulated with time release of the active ingredients! I would likely have to recruit my super smart biomedical engineering/tissue engineering/drug delivery researching professor husband to explain exactly how this works, but just trust me that it does. Active ingredients are released over a much longer period of time, which means that not only are they fighting your pimples longer, but your skin will likely tolerate this better! The days of dry, flaky skin from your Oxy pads are gone!
In the collection are:
• Advanced Face Wash: Up to 80% of the "AcneShield advanced salicylic acid technology" remains on your skin after rinsing
• Clinical Clearing Treatment: The micro-encapsulated benzoyl peroxide remains on the skin longer to reach the acne bacteria deep inside your pores, killing 99% in 8 hours.
• Hydrating Therapy: Salicylic acid to help unclog pores, hydration with hyaluronic acid and a "Ploy-Pore" technology to help absorb extra oil.
While I can't try out the system for a review (that salicylic acid is a pregnancy no-no), Oxy did offer to sponsor a Back to School giveaway! 2 people will win an Oxy Clinical Solutions Pack, which contains all of the above products!
