Skincare is my favourite thing! If I had to pick between giving up skincare or giving up makeup, I would happily give up makeup. About a month ago, I did my first ever Cult Beauty order, and picked up a couple products that have been highly raved about, but are virtually impossible to get here in Canada. Today is all about the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel, which I have read/seen countless reviews about, and was super excited to get my hands on.
The Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel is described as an ‘illuminating vitamin facial cleanser, with vitamins A, C & E, omega 6, pumpkin enzymes, chamomile & rose’. First, right off the bat, this isn’t a traditional gel cleanser, at all. It’s like an oil based cleanser, that has a gel consistency. It’s similar to the Ole Henriksen Pure Truth Melting Cleanser or the Clarins Pure Melt Cleansing Gel. The difference is that I find I don’t need a second cleanse after using the Oskia Cleansing Gel, where as I find I definitely need it for both the Clarins and the Ole Henriksen ones.
It’s a super rich cleanser, which leaves my skin feeling clean, hydrated and glowing.There is a slight rose hip scent, but I don’t find it overwhelming or
In the evening, I use it as my first cleanse to remove all my makeup, which is does super well, including my stubborn mascara. It does sting my eyes slightly, but I don’t find it too irritating. I initially was only using it in the evening, because I was worried that it would be too oily for the morning, but that’s not an issue at all. It actually feels like a treat using it in the morning, it wakes me up and gives me great skin to start the day.
It’s definitely on the pricer side of cleansers, but I picked it up during a recent 20% off event at Cult Beauty, so the price is very comparable to both the Clarins and Ole Henriksen Cleansers.
If you’re looking for a splurge, I recommend this, especially if you have angry, dehydrated skin like me.
Have you tried anything from Oskia?
Thanks for stopping by!
