Angel Skin skincare product’s name caught my attention. After all, who wouldn’t want the skin of an angel?
Angel Skin products may not make your skin into that of an angel, but they do have natural oils that have been put through the ozonolysis process. This energizes and oxygenates the products, enhancing the effects and the delivery of the active actives into your skin. There are also antibacterial ingredients that help to reduce redness, and inflammation, and accelerate healing.
These clean beauty products don’t have fillers, parabens, SLS, or synthetic fragrances. They’re vegan, cruelty-free, and free from toxins, preservatives, and chemical additives. I appreciate the fact that you can get full sizes or mini starter sets ($29-$36) Considering that most of the full-sized products are $40+ this is a nice way to try the products for less. The serums I tried were in oxygen-free containers, also a plus.
What is an Ozonated Oil?
The first thing you might ask is what is an ozonated oil? It is made by infusing a high concentration of ozone into an oil(usually olive oil). This combines the moisturizing and nurturing properties of the oil with the healing properties of the ozone. So if I understand this correctly, ozonated oils detox your skin, and also provide intense hydration and moisturization. The process helps the good-for-your-skin ingredients to penetrate deep into the layers of your skin.
I hope this isn’t too confusing. According to Angel Skin, their organic ozonated oil can do a plethora of things: stimulate the growth of skin cells, reduce wrinkles, cellulite, inflammation, and swelling as well as soothe your skin if you’ve been out in the sun. I had to try their products!
Lights Out Retinol Renewing Serum:
Lights Out is a Retinol Renewing Serum 1.0 Retinol with 3% Lactic Acid – Full Size ($50). It features hyaluronic acid and 3% lactic acid mixed with 1.0% retinol. Angel Skin claims that this makes this serum very unique and good for sensitive skin since lactic acid avoids the irritation of retinol on sensitive skin. Other ingredients include antioxidant Myrtle, and Peptillium to stimulate cell renewal. The results are accomplished through a time-release delivery system.
Another plus is that all the ingredients are listed on the website: To use the product, shake the container well. Then apply 1-2 pumps to your face for 2-3 nights per week for the first 2 weeks. As your skin gets accustomed to the formula, you can adjust the number of applications up to 7 times per week. **note, avoid the eye area. Retinol exposes new skin to the sun’s damaging rays so please please wear a sunblock of SPF30 or higher while using the product.
OxyFusion Energizing and Purifying Oxygen Serum:
OxyFusion Energizing and Purifying Oxygen Serum (full size $35) is a concentrated, non-chemically derived oxygen serum that will purify and energize your skin increasing your skin’s oxygen content by (Angel Skin claims) 100%. It is also supposed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles by 40%. It’s called a serum, but Angel Skin recommends that you use it under the serum, so I assume you apply it first, under the serum I just wrote about above that has the Retinol.
More confusing is the suggestion to mix it with the Heavenly Mist Toner to make it a more water-based serum for oily skin or for use under makeup. But then I’m informed that the product is ideal for all skin types. Since it is anti-inflammatory and antibacterial it is also good for acne-prone skin (mixed with Angel Skin’s Mist Toner which I didn’t try).
The ingredients are: Ozonated olive oil, squalane, pure ozone, mineral, and natural essence. The serum has pure ozonated olive oil and it’s a natural scent. So if you smell something it’s the ozone.
About the Founder, Kler Rosenberg:
Kler Rosenberg started her interest in skincare during her teenage years struggling with cystic acne. When she saw the benefits of facials, she realized that she wanted to be an esthetician. Kler was one of the pioneers who brought microblading to the USA and started teaching the art of permanent makeup. In 2018, she was awarded the best Master Trainer in the world. In 2019, she started her own international permanent makeup academy. But she couldn’t stay away from skincare for long, so she began Angel Skin. It’s medical-grade skincare for homecare and for salons. So Angel Skin was created.
The Bottom Line:
I have mixed feelings about Angel Skin. I like that you can try mini-sized versions to see if it works for you. But I only tried two products. There are other products and regimens for various skin issues in the Angel Skin collection. The two serums I tried were nice, but I have never used one serum under another. Perhaps I used too much, but the result was sticky skin.
The ozone scent of the OxyFusion Energizing and Purifying Oxygen serum smelled faintly of ozone, not an issue. But the other Serum, the Lights Out Serum with Retinol did sting a bit. I have very sensitive skin so for most people, this won’t be an issue. But is it really good for all skin types? I would have to do more testing than I was able to if I wanted to be sure.
What I really raised an eyebrow to was the fact that this is supposedly “medical grade skincare” and there are no studies or tests shown on the website. Did I miss them? I should think that when you’re producing something unique, you’d want to show its efficacy. But there was nothing. So I can’t really give the website or the products two thumbs up. That’s even though the products seem ok. If you give Angel Skin your email they say they’ll send you a trial set and a discount. You might want to do this before you go for an entire skincare regimen. For more information visit https://angelskin.us/
