Ophrys Skin

Ophrys offers skin and sun care products developed and manufactured by HyAx Skincare. Their #skincareproducts is formulated using the patented Low Molecular Weight Cross Linked Hyaluronic Technology called Mini-HaX for skin hydration.

The Eye Gel is a light cooling cream that uses marine and plant enzymes to reduce under eye fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin elasticity, and reduce puffiness. It is also free of fragrance, parabens, and oils.

It’s unscented and has a thick clear-whiteish cream that’s semi-sticky. It’s easy to spread on the skin. Despite its thick consistency, I was pleasantly surprised to find how quickly it is absorbed by the skin. The product’s formulation itself is kinda sticky, but it’s easy to apply and feels comfortable on the skin as it dries. The texture really makes it perfect for the skin around the eyes, which is sensitive and often neglected. I personally have trouble with dark circles under my eyes, but when I use this, I feel like they look less severe and that my whole eye area just looks refreshed in general, even if I only get a few hours of sleep. I can see how, over time, with regular use, it can fight fine lines and wrinkles.

The Facial Protect is a broad-based UVA/UVB sun facial protection spf 46 containing niacinamide and vitamin e. It helps prevent sunburn and skin damage and is free of oils and parabens.

The product was formulated for normal to oily and acne prone skin. It is, as expected of sunblock formulas, is stark white and very thick. I had a bit of a hard time applying it onto my face, but once it’s on, it’s as light as a veil! You just need a good minute to work it in well and wait for it to fully settle on the skin. No harsh reactions, and no interference with my makeup or other products.

The Body Moisturizer, using the HyAx skincare patented technology, promises to deliver long-lasting moisture to the skin surface and promote skin cell renewal and helps to reduce skin aging. It contains vegetable and plankton extracts and squalene. It also isn’t made with fragrance and parabens.

This was different from body moisturizers I’ve tried. Other products usually smell like fruits. This product has a weak smell—a plus for people who aren’t a fan of excessively fragrant creams. What I loved about the product is that it was easy to apply. I didn’t have much trouble with massaging the cream on my skin despite its rich texture. I use it daily and at night after every shower. My skin felt soft and hydrated after every application.
