Oxybleach Review


I am scared of bleaches because I have attempted bleaching my whole face two to three times before (with different brands) and it has given me bad reactions even if I leave it for the shortest time, but bleaching is indispensable for me. I bleach selectively on my neck and upper lip area to lighten dark hair there. This way, I do not mess up my facial skin and get lightened hair too. But, bleaching has been such a “misconstrued” word. Even advertisements show the bleaching products as something you should try to become gori gori, which is misleading. Natural bleaching can be done with papaya and lime+honey+tomato mixture, but for lightening and softening the texture of facial hair, chemical bleaching is the best option available. I have been using Fem bleach for my facial hair, but when I saw this tagline “Healthy Way to Bleach” for Oxybleach, I had to try it. Also, I wanted to know how the prebleach cream that comes in the Oxybleach pack made a difference.

What the Official Website Says About Oxybleach

FEM presents Oxybleach, the world’s first bleach with a unique pre-bleach cream. Probably the healthiest bleach in the world today, Oxybleach not only provides you with fairer, healthier skin, its pre-bleach cream also forms a protective shield for even the most sensitive skin, giving you a safe and enhanced bleaching experience. When skin is exposed to stress, harsh sunlight and high levels of pollution, it starts looking pale. This indicates a lack of oxygen in the skin and time for oxygenation. Oxybleach liberates immense oxygen during the bleaching process, thereby providing much needed Oxygenation to the skin, nourishing and energizing it in the process. No wonders, leading beauty professionals and parlours recommend Oxybleach as a healthy way to bleach.

Oxybleach is now available in a 25g retail pack at a store near you. So stop ordinary bleaching and start Oxy-bleaching.

My Experience With Oxybleach

Bleaches available in the market come with many fancy tags such as fruit bleach, organic bleach, natural bleach, golden bleach, herbal bleach, and now this “healthy bleach”, but all bleaches basically have hydrogen peroxide and persulphates which work chemically to treat and bleach hair. Oxybleach is available in varying quantities starting from one time use to multiple uses pack. For trial purpose, I got this 9 g pack, which costed me Rs. 30.
Oxybleach comes in a sky blue pack with a small tub containing the bleach cream, an even smaller container with the blue bleach powder, a spatula, and a sealed packet containing pre-bleach cream.
This small pack for one-time use contains 7 g bleach cream, 1 g powder activator, and 1 g pre-bleach cream.
There is an instruction leaflet, which comes along with this pack (which I have misplaced), which details about doing patch test and for how long to keep the bleach. Since, I have really sensitive skin, I chose to keep the bleach only for about 10 minutes.

First, I applied and massaged the pre-bleach cream on to my upper lip area, which is supposed to enhance the bleaching process.

I took two pinches of powder activator into the bleach cream as instructed and kept mixing it with spatula for 2 minutes.

After mixing the cream and activator thoroughly, I applied the preparation on the upper lip area and kept it for 10 minutes. There is a slight tingling sensation as is usual with other bleaching creams.

After washing away the bleach, I noticed that not only had my facial hair got bleached to a matchable color, but also, that the area around the upper lip had lightened two to four shades lighter and had become tan free. I was kind of startled because I never had such kind of an experience with the fem bleaches and embarrassed because I had developed a white moustache area under my nose.

I didn’t want to risk applying the leftover bleach cream and opened up a new pack of Oxybleach to get the other parts my face bleached so that I don’t get teased for having a moustache. This time, I kept the bleach for around 6 to 7 minutes because I am very very scared of bleaching my face and I did notice that the skin tone had become at least 2 to 3 shades lighter.

Also, I did not see my skin react badly as it had with other bleaches. Overall, I think I will choose this bleach over the others for my once in a month facial bleaching.

PROs of Oxybleach

• Comes with a prebleach cream which conditions and enhances the bleaching effect.
• Bleaches dark hair to a nice golden colour within 10 minutes flat. With other bleaches, dark skinned/dark hair people need to keep the bleach on for more than 10 minutes.
• If you have tanned skin, this bleach effectively removes the tan and makes the skin tone lighter in 10 minutes.
• I did not have any bad reaction to the bleach.
• Price is very reasonable.

CONs of Oxybleach

• Do not know the mystery behind this oxygen releasing formula.
• Might turn the hair into copper toned colour if kept for longer than 10 minutes.
• Patch test is mandatory before trying it on the face because it may react on sensitive skin differently.

Will I Buy This Oxybleach Again: Yes, I have to coz it’s a necessity until I go through laser.
IMBB Star Rating: 3/5. -2 for the oxygen mystery.

    1. Yasmeen, thank you for giving me the idea….I can use it on my feet….yeah……I am such a buddu…never thought about using it to remove tan on my feet :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

  1. jomol , you can also try mixing half ka half of the activator powder in the entire cream and then using it for face.. it reduces the chemicaal effect and works pretty well and gets skin to the natural colour rather than golden /white.. i have bleached thrice till date, using this trick, and am happy with it .. 😀

    1. Yaa Naina, i do the same….
      The first time I had used the entire quantity and it made my face look gray! :-/ even though i had left it only for 7-8 mins!
      Good review Jomol…this is the best bleach that i have used.

      1. Adiiti…..gray…..waise…..i once saw a lady who used the fem blue bleach and forgot to take it off until 35 minutes and her face was like blue blue :tremble: :tremble: :tremble: :tremble: :tremble:

  2. its the best bleach iv ever used!!
    iv never tried any other after getting ahnds on this one…
    my skin is also unbelievably soft atleast for one week after using this one!! and yes it does remove tan and also gives a very fresh look!! its my HG …
    i love it and how!! O:) O:) O:) :)) :))

  3. hi jomol I got it done at a parlour before . though I was and am totally against bleaching . But the beautician insisted to bleach my face before the facial. I remember I had a tingling sensation and itchy feeling after applying this .
    somehow I never dare to do a bleach ever in my lifetime.

    1. Sumi……bleaching is a boon for people with facial hair…..but combined with facial, bleaching does give a good effect…… :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo:

  4. I have used this bleach too once when my face had got badly tanned..and it really did brighten up my face :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

    1. Ritika………..it works wonderfully on tanned skin na….actually, I was surprised that I was so much tanned……… 😐 😐 😐

  5. Even I use bleach to remove tan on my feet.. :)) I use FEM Gold Creme Bleach which has “real” gold powder.. :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :yelo: :yelo: :yelo:
    Nice review Jomol chechi :waytogo: :waytogo: but I dare not use this on my face.. 😛 😛

    1. Yeah Sruthi….some skins are really sensitive to harsh bleaching agents………you shouldn’t bleach until its a complete necessity…..means if you have facial hair, only then you should think about bleachinbg

  6. Jomol when I have to attend a party & don’t have time to wax, I use Fem Bleach, it does lighten the skin & hair but makes it very dry. Will give this a try :yes: , I’m so scared to bleach my face :tremble:

    1. Urmi……he he he….white moustache na…..you show your belly first :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue:

  8. now that we are talking of bleaches
    anyone please recommend what is teh best bleach to use herbal/gold or else when u have acne and open pores and it becomes a must to beach :smirk: :smirk:

    1. flygirl…..all the bleaches are same only….I checked out the Nature’s Golden bleach which was supposed to be herbal, but it has the same ingredients……I think this one is a little better 🙂

      1. you know Kiran rao calls Aamir khan “my love” ,,, whenever ghollum used to say “my precious” he reminded me of Kiran Rao 😐 😐 😐 😐

          1. It depends on the movie no… :)) Whenever i see LOTR, i wish that Harry Potter movies were also so well made.. :wilt: :wilt: :wilt:

  9. Jomol I use the fruit bleach by Fem once in while during summers. it is for sensitive skin.. I am not sure iof it has anything fruity or herbal about it or not but it has never casued any reactions to my skin. Infact, I quite like it.

    I have used ths one also.. me likes. 😀 😀

    1. Me like this one Rati…with the other fem bleaches na….that blue and pink ones …..if I use it on my face na……I get rashes everywhere…… :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep:

  10. i have use 2 variants of Fem till date & got the bigger pack of Fem gold bleach too. so when thts over i’ll try this 1,jomol for sure… :waytogo: :waytogo:
    N who r scared of bleaching,..there’s no harm in using a bleach on ur face.. it lightens the skin tone means, tht it removes tan, n bleach ur facial hair so u luk fairer :yes: :yes: .. use a good moisturizer later.. always… :haanji: :haanji:

  11. I too love oxybleach a lot, I use it once in 3 months, It has not caused any skin irritation, but now will try wat Rati has mentioned :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance:

  12. Fem bleach is what I’ve used for years…ive tried otherz they dont suit my skin…

    @ Nids…where did u buy Fem gold bleach…sumhow ive never seen it !! 🙁

    1. Shanaiia….even I haven’t seen the golden bleach…….but the blue and pink varieties have reacted badly………

    1. oh yeah I saw it.. i think swati sent the link… “you have to fry it.. i love it” 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 Super cute. :))

      1. 😛 😛 😛 Yeah…..he he he…I will heave a sigh of relief once things are done properly on tuesday..tab takk I have to keep on doing breathing exercises!!!

    1. veena i would say that you do a patch test before using any kind of bleach. If it suits you, go ahead, if not then probably you could drop it. I would say that it is best that you get it done at the parlour first before doing on your own. Do moisturise your skin after you have bleached. 🙂

  13. I use fem bleach.. Was planning to use fem gold bleach.. Bt aftr reading dis review am confused.. Somebody plz help me out.. Which is best?

    1. Samin…..try both fem gold and this one also….actually if you buy this small pack for 30 rupees, you can use it for trial purposes…BTW, Samin, this oxybleach is also from fem 🙂

      1. Thanx jomol… 🙂 actualy i was thinking…wotz th diffrnce btw gold bleach n ordinary…? Ordinary also change our hairs to golden na…?

  14. I was just googling & came to know tht OxyBleach is a product of Fem itself.. :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:
    so every1 asking/talking about Fem or oxy bleach, are talking of different types under the same brand.. :haanji: :haanji: :haanji:

      1. Nids…..I mentioned :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: but I think….they want to show it as a unique product, and the cover does not show the Fem logo or name……its a stratergy I think….those who keep off fem, may try this….thats why :toothygrin:

  15. OMG!!!!!!!!!! removes tan!!!!!!!!! :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: i will get this tomorrow itself.. coz today is sunday na.. 😛

          1. but leg ki skin is toh not that sensitive no….I think I’ll try behind the ears….and see….thanx for tip :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :-* :-*

      1. You straightened hairs :hypnotized: :hypnotized: :hypnotized: :hypnotized: :hypnotized:
        Atleast your bf didnt say anything about that..my boyfriend doesnt even let me buy a straightener 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐

    1. These guys just dont want to make us change anything in us……I think its a conspiracy..they don’t want us to spend money on all these stuffs..but they cant stop us naaa…..They should think we also get bored of how we look and want to experiment and get some difference in life!!! 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐 :yelo: :yelo: :yelo: :yelo: :yelo:

    1. because you are already gori na…..you just wanted to tell you are gori and I am kaali na :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep:

      1. I am kaaaali only..well the MAC girl said I am something 42 or higher kinds…(just checked with her for a reference cos that seems to be a standard of measurement in the blogging world)..and that’s definitely not fair or gori. I no like bleach…when I did use it ages back I used to get pimples later…but anyway, I decided I don’t really need to put something like that on my face. No offence meant to anyone..I still get sorely tempted to use it for my feet 😛 😛 😛 😀 😀 😀 Is so odd how I am so bothered about using it on my face..but for my feet am so tempted to try…:| 😐 😐 😐 😐

        1. I have never tried using bleach on my feet….. I will also give it a try . I dont like my feet, may be i like them a little after bleaching :smug: :smug: :smug: :smug:

  17. Nice review jomol
    Havnt used bleach evr … neither i would dare to :sweat: :sweat: :suspense: .. but m so tempted to use it for my feet ..
    nice review jomol …. :cute:

    Hey Rati, I sent u a mail bt dint get it posted till date .. if u see this msg plz reply 🙄

  18. Khushi…..it never struck me that i could use :waytogo: bleach on my legs…..until yasmeen mentioned it….I am gonna try it……

  19. Hey Jomol, Me too … but i want a suggestion frm u as u have used it …
    do i use it for tan removal of my arms which I have never bothered about :struggle: :struggle: Waise i have a sensitive skin n m really scared abt long term effects of bleach :silly:

  20. Khushi…..I think it is a good idea to use it on your arms before you use it on your face becoz the skin on the arms and the legs are much more thicker and you will also know whether you are allergic to it or not……and my face tho na……its damn sensitive, but I did not have any side effects with this …….but I suggest you use on your arms or legs first and check it out for yourselves :))

  21. Thanks for the heads up on using it only on the upper lip Jomol di :thanks:
    I was actually planning to get this one just for my upper lip. Now I think I’ll try bleaching my face and feet..

  22. Sorry to say but bleaching is HORRIBLE for your skin. You may have adverse reactions in the future (Such as darkening of the skin) Stay away from bleaching!

  23. Hi Jomol, is Oxybleach only available in India? :)) Over here I only ever see the Sally Hansen bleach, which I’ve been using for years on my lady moustache 😀 (and brows when I dye my hair), and sometimes when my skin is very sensitive it stings real badly. SO I’m looking for an alternative brand. :))

  24. I bleached my face with Oxy bleach formula this weekend and it was wonderful.
    I was amazed with the results, my skin is now healthy glowing with shine on.
    I would recommend this product as it very reasonable with best results as compared to other bleach.
