Tried & Tested: Prai O2 Infusion

I was sent a rather intriguing product last week in the form of Prai’s 02 Infusion with Vacuum Technology. If you are looking at the name and wondering exactly what type of product this is, I must admit I was right there with you on that one. Even all of the accompanying ‘blurb’ didn’t really explain the nature of this product!

“This innovative formula contains oxygen molecules to help deliver additional oxygen to the surface of the skin, giving lackluster skin a more youthful and refreshed look”

It’s not quite a cleanser, not quite a face mask, but rather something along the lines of a face ‘treatment’?

Definitions aside, I was eager to try it (mainly out of sheer curiosity!)

One pump of product

The texture is interesting. It comes out as a lotion and when you massage it into dry skin it transforms into a light foam. The bottle instructs you to leave it on your face for 1-2 minutes, during which time it continues to foam.

Massaged into skin

The scent is nice, it’s sweet and somewhat passion-fruity without being too over powering and the consistency of the product is nice, and novel!

After 1 min

I encountered one major problem with this product though. It made my face sting so badly, I couldn’t keep it on for 2 minutes! I kept in on for 60 seconds, and then quickly wiped it off with a cloth as instructed.

As for results, I do think my skin looks a little brighter and is definitely smoother, but it also looks slightly red and irritated. I don’t normally have very sensitive skin so this was somewhat of a shock and it still feels slightly tight and irritated half an hour after use.

All in all, this is a novel idea but I wouldn’t recommend it for those whose of you whose skin is on the sensitive side. Even those who don’t normally have sensitive skin, use with caution!

Prai 02 Infusion is priced at £19.75 and available from QVC in the next few weeks
