Trying new skincare products can go one of two ways; you discover a new favourite or you feel disappointed/ripped off (especially if it was quite pricey). Luckily, both of these products I’m about to tell you about are comfortably within the new favourites, or at least, they’re heading that way!
Oskia are a fairly new brand but already their Renaissance Cleansing Gel* is causing quite a stir amongst skincare fans. I actually received this free as part of a little offer Oskia were running with Kate aka gh0stparties.
The Renaissance Cleansing Gel is pink gel to oil formula that melts away make up (just avoid your eyes with this one) and leaves behind a chamomile and rose scent and super soft skin. It’s gentle but effective leaving behind clean, fresh skin and if like me, you’re not one to waste products, you’ll like the pump on the bottle too.
The Renaissance Mask is designed to boost skin brightness and clarity and includes 9 beauty-boosting actives which are all pure. Oskia pride their skincare on being free from artificial fragrances, colours, silicones, parabens and sulphates so although their products might be slightly more expensive than your other skincare, it’s all for a good reason.
The mask comes in a glass tub and has a little spoon so you can scoop a small amount of the fruity scented product for each use – just don’t be tempted to eat it, as inviting as it may look! A little goes a long way, making this mask serious value for money, if the abundance of award accolades don’t convince you sooner. The peachy pink gel turns white when you’ve massaged it in, which is handy when it comes to washing it off. Once applied, I leave it for around 15 minutes then wash off to see brighter skin that feels really nourished, so I’m sure this will be a firm favourite in the colder months.
Use both together and you’ll have baby soft skin, but if you don’t have the time for that (I only use a mask once a week, rarely more frequently) or don’t want to buy both, I’d recommend trying the cleansing gel first.
Have you tried anything from Oskia?
