It was one of my new year’s resolutions to come up with a super duper skin care routine. One that would banish all spots and leave my skin feeling lovely. A tall order by any means, however, I am prepared to splurge. I don’t mind investing in great skincare. I am all for a luxury bathroom experience, and I don’t mind paying as long as it works!
The first on my list to try was the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel. This brand has been flying around the blogosphere for a while but this is the first time I’ve tried anything by them.They are an all-natural skin care brand which really appeals to me. I feel like what is the point in eating clean and worrying about what food you put into your body to then follow it up by rubbing your face in a load of chemicals? You feel me?
I was very excited to try this cleanser. I truly truly wanted to love it. Mainly because the packaging is gorgeous and I knew it would look great on display in my bathroom. But I don’t know, I just don’t.
Don’t get me wrong there is nothing wrong with this cleanser. It cleans my face well, doesn’t break me out and leaves my skin feeling super soft after use. Reading that back maybe I have been too hard on it. It cleans my face and leaves my skin feeling REALLY soft. I mean, what more can a cleanser do?
I just think I expected a little more. Something special. At £28 a bottle, it is not cheap.
It’s a gel like texture which I wasn’t sure of at first, but when you rub it into the skin it turns into an oil. I actually love this about the product. It takes about 30 seconds to transition, and it means that you really work the product into your skin before removing with a hot cloth.
I’m still on the fence about whether to repurchase the cleansing gel. I wasn’t a fan at first, but the more I use it the more I grow to love it. Perhaps I need to finish of the bottle and then decide.Have you tried the Oskia Renaissance cleaning gel? I am tempted to try an Aesop cleanser next. Which do you prefer? Do you have any cleanser recommendations?
