I was anxious to try Innarah JO2 Compound Hyper-Oxygenated Crème, both because of the impressive ingredients list and Innarah’s exclusive and proprietary "Fermentation Process," which (according to their website) allows the ingredients to ferment over time, maintaining their potency. I had done some research about oxygenated skin care products, but this was my first experience with one.
The list of ingredients is impressive, including several with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory qualities, plus egg oil for omega-3s and even plant stem cells. What caught my eye was their claim that it both hydrates AND "reduces the appearance of dark spots."
I'm 65, and my skin is in pretty good shape (thank you TIA) and normally neither dry nor oily. It is winter in the Midwest, though, and more hydration is always welcome. Over the past several months, I noticed that dark splotches had appeared on both sides of my face, plus one on my nose — a new, and unwelcome, development.
The Innarah JO2 Compound Hyper-Oxygenated Crème comes in dark, glass jar, which is especially nice, rather than a fancy dispenser that is impossible to empty completely without the use of a hammer. The consistency is like fluffy frosting or whipped butter, rich and easy to apply. At first, it seemed just a little heavy, and in the summer, I would probably just use it at night and not under daytime makeup.
For 30 days, I applied it to my clean face, neck and décolletage. A little goes a long way. This 1.7-ounce jar is still more than 2/3 full (making the price more palatable) and should last me another two months, at minimum.
My skin absorbs it quickly, feels (and looks) much more hydrated and is noticeably softer. My overall skin tone is much improved, smoother and more even. Blotches and dark spots gone.
The effects have been gradually noticeable, which makes me hopeful about the outcome of extended use. Although unfortunately, I have not seen firmer-looking skin or noticeable fading of fine lines and wrinkles, my skin feels hydrated all day, and looks younger, almost dewy... especially under my eyes, which is where I see the most impressive improvement in tone and texture.
About three weeks in, I noticed that the few dark spots on my face (which were not very dark and easily covered with concealer) were gone. My neck and décolletage look better. Not dramatically, but smoother, with no redness or blotches in sight. The light freckling I noticed this past summer is barely a shadow.
Although the price seems high, if the product lives up to its potential, I would both recommend and continue using it. The jar has two more months to live up to its claim for firmer skin, and I believe the effects are accumulative. I'll report back with my results in a few months, when the jar is empty.
