Bliss Triple Oxygen+C Energizing Cream………say that three times yo!
A super powered gel cream that contains Vitamin C to recharge tired, dull skin and brighten it while moisturizing and smoothing!
I heart Bliss. They make the most innovative little skin care products. Bliss Triple Oxgen+C Energizing Cream was instantly my new best friend as soon as it caught my eye.
First off it was a gel cream but it was also a gel cream with Vitamin C to supercharge my tired, dull skin and make it fresh and bright again!
Oh my god!
Yeah well…not so much.
Here’s the deal.
It’s a gel moisturizer which in my opinion is fabulous. I’ve mentioned in a prior post that gel creams aren’t particularly common within the US so when I do run across one it’s a keeper in my opinion and Bliss Triple Oxygen + C gets the award for cool gel moisturizers. The formula is a thicker gel that has a strong citrus scent, very pleasant to my nose but sensitive types may not love it. Once applied it causes a very slight tingle, again sensitive types be aware and do a spot check prior. It absorbs easily and leaves behind exceedingly hydrated skin, more so than many gel moisturizers I have tried and own. This moisture travels throughout the day with you and keeps skin very fresh, even dry skin types will be shocked at how great it works at locking in moisture.
Now the cream is supposed to release oxygen into your skin to recharge it and vitamin c to brighten it….
But sadly I don’t see much change. I’ve been using in a few months now and I have yet to experience the joys of recharged, brighter skin. My skin happens to be quite dull and lackluster so I was somewhat hopeful this would truly be the cure all for that but sadly not the case.
Sensitive types might want to be careful with this one as it does tingle a bit on my skin so it might turn your face a bit red…I’m just assuming here as I am not sensitive but better to warn you prior to having you slather yourself in it and possibly having a bad reaction.
- Anyone looking for a quick absorbing moisturizer that has a lasting hydration effect throughout the day!
- Those seeking something to brighten skin up and erase dullness (it didn’t work for me but the reviews I’ve read are pretty positive about how fantastic the results are).
- Sensitive types (read above).
- Anyone unwilling to dish out $54 on 1.7 oz facial cream.
I liked this alot simply because the formula works fantastic at locking in moisture and making my face look quite moist and hydrated, almost dewy in some cases. It absorbs super fast which is a plus for me without leaving behind oiliness or a film. Now the moisturizer gets aces from me in the directions of hydration however the price of $54 for 1.7 oz does make me wince simply because I was expecting brighter, fresher skin and since it doesn’t deliver, the price therefore is a bit too steep for simply something that’s hydrating and doing little else. Honestly, at that price I can go even higher end for something that will do more and even indulge in the benefits of anti-aging (which this does not have). If it worked I wouldn’t have a problem with the price and if it was cheaper I’d probably buy it again simply because it’s a nice cream however since it doesn’t do everything I had hoped I probably won’t purchase again.
Don’t listen to me as the reviews I’ve read are really raving ones on both Sephora, at Bliss, and across various forums. So it could be something worth trying out to see how it reacts with your skin.
Sadly, as much as I was wanting to love it, I simply couldn’t.
