OXY Seaweed Power Fresh Skin Wash - Review

Hello everyone,

Today I am going to be sharing my views on the OXY Seaweed Power Fresh Skin Wash. 
I have been using it for most of this month and have to say I have instantly taken a liking to it!
The OXY skin care range is available from stores such as Boots and Tesco and costs £5.99.

'OXY has been a trusted and effective brand in the fight against blackheads, spots and oily skin for over 20 years.'

'Spot prone skin needs a powerful yet gentle approach. That's why the dermatoligists at OXY have undertaken ground breaking research into the power of nature.'

What I like about this product the most is that it contains jojoba micro beads that work deep into the skin to help fight spot-causing bacteria and reduce redness. This product dissolves oil which I find helps to keep shine under control. For me is what I look for when purchasing a new face product as I have quite oily skin. I love how clean my skin feels after using this product and the micro beads feel like they are really working to get rid of any dead skin cells on my face, leaving it feeling extremely clean! This product has a similar texture to an exfoliator and gives a powerful deep cleanse without being too harsh on your skin.

This product is gentle enough to be used everyday, even for people who have sensitive skin.
After using this product I have noticed that my skin has become a lot clearer and looks brighter too!

The OXY face wash is said to work best alongside the OXY Deep Calm Balm moisturiser. 
I have been using it with my Liz Earle light moisturiser and I think this combination works well. I think any oil-free moisturiser would be suitable to use with this product however I am going to try out the calm balm to see if that makes any more of a difference in how clear my skin looks. 

  • Clean, fresh smell
  • No alcohol
  • No parabens
  • No SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulphate)
  • Contains provitamin B5
  • Suitable for sensitive skin
  • Reduces redness
  • Controls shine
  • Can be used everyday

  • I haven't had any bad experiences with this product as of yet and at this moment in time, I can't think of anything negative to say.

Have you tried this product before? Let me know what your experience was like whether it was good or bad!

  1. I've never tried OXY products before but after reading your review I'm tempted to try this out! x

    1. I hadn't used it before either but I'm really glad I tried it! If you give it a go let me know what you think of it :) x

  2. this sounds really good for my oily skin! i have never took any notice of 'OXY' as a brand - might have to now though!

    1. I think you should try it! I'm so glad I did! :) x

  3. I've always found Oxy products to be really effective, I think highstreet products like this don't get enough credit in the beauty blogging world. I found you through BBU bloghop and am now following :) x

    1. I totally agree with you! I think this product is fab!
      Thanks for following too! I'm going to take a look at your blog now! :) x

  4. i've never personally tried it, but you've made it sound so amazing that i want to! haha. I love that its for sensitive skin as well =)

    1. I was a little unsure about using it at first because my skin can be quite sensitive at times but I have to say I think it's great! My skin feels deeply cleansed without feeling dry or irritated :) x

  5. Sounds pretty lovely! I am always worried about trying new skin products but this sure does sound nice!

    1. It is lovely! I've been enjoying using it because my skin has been looking fab!:) x

  6. I definitely want to try this!

  7. ^ me too! and it's affordable which i like :)
    i just don't know if its here in Australia :(

  8. I'm not sure! Keep an eye out for it next time you go shopping or maybe you could have a look on their website :) x

  9. I love Liz Earle products. I haven't tried this product yet, but it sounds good xo

  10. I just bought this and the balm in Savers for £1.99 each. Looking forward to trying it as I've heard such good reviews! :)

  11. I find this dries out my skin too much which is really disappointing because I can tell its a really good product but perhaps for more oily skin, but how lovely is Liz Earle moisturiser!!
