What first drew me to wanting to try OSKIA was its home grown approach to the skin and its philosophy of harnessing the benefits of MSN, which is most commonly known as the 'beauty mineral'; a natural form of organic sulphur that boosts collagen production, promotes circulation, while decreasing inflammation for a brighter complexion. This first-hand discovery evolved into a nutritional approach, utilising essential cell nutrients (minerals, vitamins, proteins, essential fatty acids) that are vital in upholding optimal skin health and performance. OSKIA is a very honest brand, and I trust its values, resulting in the huge urge to try the products.
On first try, I was drawn to the scent; a potent, but not overbearing, rose fragrance with a hint of chamomile. The formula is of a gel consistency with a radiant looking pinky orange hue, which melts into an oil when warmly massaged into the skin. I like to give my skin a good massage when using this, and then leaving it to sink in for a minute before emulsifying it with a splash of water. The product feels so refreshing on the skin and skin feels deeply cleaned post-wash off (which I use a muslin cloth for). I find this cleanser is my 'go to' on days where I have worn slightly heavier make-up as it quite literally melts away, making even the trickiest of mascaras a breeze to remove. Infused with vitamins A, C and E, skin feels instantly refreshed, energised and radiant; after a few weeks my skin is positively looking healthier, more plumped and - ultimately - emitting a lovely glow.
Although suitable for all skin types, I feel this is definitely a must have for those of you like me with dry, dull complexions, and a product ideal for the fast-approaching coldness of winter. If you want soft, supple and calmer skin, the OSKIA Renaissance Cleanser is worth a try. Dare I say it, but for now, this has taken over my Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish routine. I will forever be repurchasing.
