As a licensed esthetician and as someone who is unapologetically skincare obsessed, I like to always be on top of the latest and greatest products, tools, and devices in the beauty sphere. Side note: I am also a millennial who grew up watching The Simple Life. How do these two things intersect? Well, when I saw Paris Hilton raving about a new device, the Le Mieux Ionized Oxygen Infuser, I was immediately intrigued. And when I found out that her mom, aka RHOBH star Kathy Hilton, was also a fan, I knew I had to try it for myself!
And now I am obsessed with my new skincare infuser. Here’s why:
1. It’s Incredibly Easy to Use
I think we have all fallen victim to some skincare gadget that ended up being more time and trouble than it was worth. Even though this infuser looks very techy, it couldn’t be easier to use. Simply fill the included cup halfway with the Le Mieux Oh My Glow Activator and add a few drops of the serum of your choice (I highly recommend the TGF-β Booster). Shake and spray away! This infuser is easily recharged with an included cord and since there are two easily washable cup attachments, you can experiment with your own custom combination.
2. It Makes My Skin Look Amazing, Immediately
Ok, here is the big one. My skin immediately looks glowy and dewy after I use my infuser. Are you chasing that glass-skin trend? Well, this is your shortcut. Something about the diamond and oxygen-infused mist hitting my skin creates a brighter glow and, frankly, I look great without makeup. Still not ready to go makeup free? No worries. The velvety finish is perfect as a base for your favorite foundations, concealers, and blush. And hydration? My skin feels plump and moisturized all day and the cooling mist fights any signs of my usual redness or irritation.
3. Oxygen, Oxygen, Oxygen!
One of the most impressive aspects of my infuser is how it infuses my skincare with oxygen. Without getting too nerdy here, oxygen can really boost your skin’s potential. I first noticed this benefit when I treated myself to a super fancy oxygen dome facial in Los Angeles a few years ago. I thought it was just weird skincare “hype” but the science behind oxygen infusion is real. It helps your skincare absorb products more effectively and boosts your formula's effectiveness while calming the skin and helping protect it from environmental pollutants and stressors. And while I wasn’t going to splurge a few thousand dollars for my own oxygen dome, my infuser accomplishes the same thing while being more affordable and taking up a lot less space!
4. Less Product Waste
Skincare can be pricey. And I know I use way too much when I apply with my fingertips. The fine mist created by my infuser applies a consistent layer to my face, neck, and body with much less product used. This means I save lots of $$$ over time and I never feel like I have to be stingy with applications. And since I never have to stick my fingers into my products, they stay fresher and much more sanitary.
5. It Feels Luxurious
For me, personally, skincare is as much about the ritual as it is about the results. My daytime routine is my way of greeting the morning and taking a few minutes to feel my best before I am out the door and plunged into the chaos of my workday. And my nighttime regimen is a ritual that helps relax and soothe me to sleep. My Le Mieux Oxygen Infuser adds a level of luxury to my skincare that feels a lot like self-care, elevated. I mean, if it’s good enough for Paris Hilton, right?
