Tried & Tested: Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel
Posted by Emily Wouters in Treatments, Tried & Tested
If you love skin care and beauty products as much as we do, then this one’s for you!
Having tested many cleansers in my day, I know that it takes a lot for a cleanser to tick all of the boxes. Through trial and error (and unwanted breakouts), I have finally found my perfect cleanser, my skincare weapon of choice, the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel…
While I have tried several balm cleansers, few have impressed me quite as much as the Renaissance Cleansing Gel. The only thing that this cleanser has in common with other balm cleansers is the application.
The packaging instructs to massage onto dry skin, then after adding a little water to emulsify the cleanser, remove with a warm muslin cloth. This may seem like quite a task to simply wash your face, but it has changed the way I view my skincare routine. Cleansing my face has become a ritual I look forward to, I mean, who doesn’t love a quick facial massage?
As for which muslin cloth you choose to use, that is a personal preference. After testing several different muslin clothes, I have settled for the Aurelia Probiotic Skincare Monday to Sunday Bamboo Muslins. Made from natural bamboo fibers, they are finely woven, so they are not rough on sensitive skin. Plus, you get seven in a box – one for each day of the week (bonus)!
There is a common misconception that balm/oil based cleansers aren’t suitable for oily skin types, but I can assure you otherwise. I have combination/oily skin and since using this cleanser I have found that my skin is starting to balance out and lean more towards the combination that oily.
Enriched with Vitamins A, C & E, Omega 6, Starflower Oil, Pumpkin Enzymes, Chamomile & Rose, the cleanser is formulated to actively illuminate and nourish the skin. The result; balanced and clean skin that is fresh, radiant and oh so soft.
If you have been considering this cleanser, I can guarantee you that you won’t be disappointed. This cleanser has revolutionised my skincare routine and it will take a true miracle cleanser to knock it from its spot on my skincare shelf. If someone had to ask me how to get healthy skin, my answer would be Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel!
