My New Favourite Band Wagon Cleanser - Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel


Cleansing is arguably the only skincare step that you absolutely have to take. You can bypass toning, exfoliating and even god forbid moisturising, but you absolutely must clean your face. I wonder if this is the reason I am and continue to be completely enamoured by cleanser and have to keep buying new varieties to try each month.

The latest to my collection is the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel which I picked up on an especially hasty and expensive Cult Beauty order. Now I must take a second to place the blame on this purchase with Anna The Anna Edit and Lily Lily Pebbles who's opinions I value greatly through years of reading and watching their reviews and hauls and agreeing whole heartedly with every statement they make. I haven't tried anything from Oskia as of yet but I must say I have heard glowing reviews all round.

So I am the kind of person that typically will only go in for a single cleanse day to day. I would only double cleanse if I was wearing an excessive amount of make-up or on a Sunday when I am doing an intense skin care routine. So my first point about this product is that it isn't the best for removing heavy eye make-up, you will need to go in with a specific eye make-up remover with this product if you did happen to be wearing a lot. Personally during the week I will mostly have on mascara and maybe a little bit of shadow or a slick of liner so to be honest this cleanser does the job pretty well. It wouldn't be my weekend cleanser as I know it wouldn't stand a chance against my smoky eye.


Another point I want to cover is how gorgeous my skin felt after applying the cleanser. The scent of the gel like consistency was gorgeous and when I removed the product my skin felt silky smooth as if it had been smoothed out a little. When I did a little more digging into the ingredients list I learned there are pumpkin enzymes in which provide a light exfoliant which is such a great addition to the cleanser. There are also mountains of Vitamin C, E and B2 which will help to protect and promote firmness in the skin. 

I definitely would use this cleanser as a morning offering or on a day where you are wearing a lighter amount of make-up. It has been promoted straight to the front of my bathroom cabinet as one of my favourite new products. Thankyou Anna and Lily for another fantastic recommendation!
