The Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel is probably one of the most talked about skincare products in the blogging world. I’m pretty sure every blogger out there has tried it at this point. I gave into the hype about a year ago and am on my second bottle so it’s high time I add my own two cents about this cleanser.
The Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel aims to strengthen and revitalise the skin, whilst removing the daily build-up of grime. The peach colour of the product comes from the pumpkin enzymes used in this cleanser – this works by purifying pores and dissolving the bonds which bind dead skin cells to the surface of your skin. Science has never been my strong point so I can’t quite fully grasp how that works but, you know, *science*.
As well as pumpkin enzyme, there are a whole lot of vitamins within this cleanser from A, C and E which all help to rejuvenate the skin and promote elasticity. Initially I was sceptical about paying this much for a cleanser but there does seem to be a lot more science behind this product than your average gel cleanser.
I’ve been using this on and off for over a year now and I think, if you can afford it, it probably is worth the price tag. My skin feels and looks great after I have used it, although it’s worth noting that there is no way that I would use this as a makeup remover; it’s just too expensive to do that, so I usually use a cheap and cheerful cleanser to remove the frankly industrial levels of make-up on my face and then use this as my second cleanse on an evening and in the mornings.
Overall, it’s a lovely cleanser that does seem to help my skin look at it’s best. Despite some niggles about packaging and price, I’m on my second bottle and I’m sure that I’ll be repurchasing again when the current one runs out.
