Best Mask Ever? Dr. Brandt Oxygen Facial Flash Recovery Mask

*Disclosure* Product mentioned was sent for consideration. All opinions are 100% honest and my own, like always. Post contains affiliate links.

Hi everyone! I was given the chance to try out the Dr. Brandt Oxygen Facial Flash Recovery Mask a little while ago, and I finally have given it a good run. I'm sure you can guess already by the title, but I've been pretty impressed. 

Here is some info on the mask from Sephora: 

What it is:
An in-home, oxygenating and recovery mask designed to boost luminosity and reinvigorate skin in just three minutes.

What it is formulated to do:
This luminizing mask helps lessen the look of fatigued skin. It works to provide tired, dull, lackluster skin with a revitalized, illuminated, and re-energized appearance. It also helps smooth the signs of fine lines. The potent formula was inspired by the most popular facial in Dr. Brandt’s practice and takes just three minutes for full effect.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Phthalates

Research results:
In a clinical test conducted on 25 volunteers over 2 weeks:
Instant results after the first application:
- 96% reported that skin looks rested and fresh
- 92% reported that skin looks more radiant and luminous

Results after using twice daily for 2 weeks:
- 100% reported that product purifies asphyxiated and fatigued skin
- 100% reported that skin feels supple and smooth
- 96% reported that skin feels more hydrated and clarified

Now, I'm not sure about you, but with a price tag of $70, I wouldn't be using this twice a day. Twice a week, maybe. Now that I've used this quite a few times, I can honestly say that this is probably the best mask I've ever tried! 

Directions say to apply a thin layer to clean skin, leave on 3 to 5 minutes, then rinse thoroughly. It says for best results, use 2-3 times per week.  

The mask starts out as a thin white cream texture, then once applied to the face, it immediately starts foaming up. Usually, masks like this are kinda gimmicky, but this one is truly amazing. After 3-5 minutes of the mask doing its magic, I remove most of the mask with a damp, warm washcloth, then rinse the rest off my face. 

After just one use, I noticed how much softer and brighter my skin was. The mask has kind of a cooling effect to the skin, which for me has been wonderful. We've had insanely hot weather here in Eastern Pennsylvania, so it's been refreshing and relaxing using this after a long day. 

Would I purchase the Oxygen Facial myself in the future? Even though the price is slightly cringe-worthy, I can fully say, yes, I would 100% purchase this myself. I do have a pretty big stock of face masks in my collection, so I'm going to savor every moment I have with this and use it sparingly. Once I use up what I have, I'll be purchasing this again, even though my wallet will hate me. 

Have you used this mask before? What do you think of it?
