A month or so ago, a bottle of Karin Herzog Oxygen Hyalu Lift arrived in the mail. A few days later, a note followed that emphasized the importance of using the accompanying brush rather than one’s fingers to apply it. They must have had me in mind as I’m not good at following directions. Ever. Believe it or not, you can enjoy the benefits of a facial product without ever laying a finger on it. For weeks now, I’ve been painting my face with this incredible treatment. I am loving a cream I’ve actually never touched. Mind blowing.
With roots in Switzerland, where everything works better than anticipated, Karin Herzog, is the first in the beauty industry to use stabilized active oxygen in her formulas. Talk about being in haute pursuit… Because my skin takes after me and tends to hyperventilate at times, a dose of fresh oxygen is very much welcome. The exclusive technology and proprietary blend of active ingredients make Oxygen Hyalu Lift a rarity in the world of anti-aging.
It’s no secret that I gravitate towards tingling and foaming oxygen masks, Retinol treatments, and wish everything could be infused with Hyaluronic Acid. Karin Herzog Oxygen Hyalu Lift went for the gold in their most recent launch and combined the ingredient power trio in one luxurious treatment. And, while any skin type will benefit from this hi tech medley, for those dealing with dryness or dullness, this is your new fix.
With 1% active Oxygen, I apply Hyalu Lift directly on the application brush to avoid absorbing any oxygen into my fingers. One pump per cheek and one for my forehead. Word of caution: avoid the eyebrows and the hairline. Oxygen is equivalent to hydrogen peroxide so unless you need to lighten up a shade or two, be sure to paint within the lines. The texture is thick and whipped but the cream itself sinks in quickly and the clean, fresh scent is very light. You may experience some tingling or foaming. Either is completely normal and lasts only seconds.
In addition to stabilized Oxygen that propels actives into the skin, this gem from Karin Herzog is packed with complexion transforming ingredients. Moisture binding Hyaluronic Acid, brightening Vitamin C, highly moisturizing Avocado and Carrot Seed Oils, and Retinol complete the deck. I choose to use this cream as my sole treatment product only at night since the abundance of greatness is so highly concentrated. If your skin needs an extra boost, use it both AM and PM.
From Vanity Fair to Kate Middleton’s vanity, Karin Herzog tops the list of luxury brands that deserve further exploration.
