What does Oskia say about their Renaissance Cleansing Gel?

Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel is an illuminating facial cleanser ideal for combination, normal, dull or dry complexions.

Specially formulated to quickly and gently remove all traces of makeup and daily impurities from the skin, Renaissance Cleansing Gel has a stunning Rose and Chamomile fragrance and a naturally derived, nourishing formula.

Enriched with a high-tech blend of Vitamins and nutrients, Renaissance Cleansing Gel focuses on improving the overall health of the skin and provides immediate skincare benefits. Oskia’s exclusive MSM Complex aids collagen production to keep the skin strong and supple. Pumpkin Enzymes deeply cleanse the pores and thoroughly removes dulling skin cells without irritation, whilst balancing the complexion.

Renaissance Cleansing Gel is also infused with Vitamins A, C and E which work synergistically to improve the appearance of sun damaged, dry and mature skin, whilst fortifying and protecting the skin against free radical and environmental damage. Starflower Oil is a powerful source of B Vitamins, Omega 6 and Magnesium, effectively helping to improve elasticity and firmness while restoring and enhancing the lipid barrier to soften and nourish the skin.

Designed to rebuild skin cell health and target common skin concerns with the best clinical actives, Renaissance Cleansing Gel reveals a beautifully healthy complexion and leaves the skin refreshed, soft and supple, with a luminous glow. All traces of makeup, dulling debris and daily impurities are eliminated.

My opinion

When I saw my favourite beautyblogger Anna from Vivianndoesmakeup using the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel and heared that she totally is obsessed with it, I knew I had to try this magical cleansing gel myself. After a little online search, I found the cleansing gel at beautybay.com, which luckily ships to The Netherlands (free if your order is above €14).

After it got delivered I immediately gave this cleansing gel a go. And I’m in love with it! The gel feels really soft and smooth and after applied to your skin it almost feels like a cleansing oil. When I got a little extra time I like to give myself a good facial massage with this gel and it feels so good (click here for a tutorial by Lisa Eldrige, it’s the best!).
After rinsing the product of my face my face feels clean, looks great and feels so incredibly soft and smooth, without feeling tense or dry. It does not remove all my makeup, but I don’t mind because I use a makeup remover before.

I can’t tell you if this cleansing gel works when you’ve got bad acne or a lot of spots, but the formula is enriched with lot’s of vitamines which helps protecting the skin against radical damage. I do however notice difference in my skin when I skipped the cleansing gel for a couple of days. It’s less bright and my blackheads show up a bit more.

Overall, I can say that this is one of the best cleaners I’ve ever tried and it has become my favourite product in my skincare routine. Price: €37,50 via Beautybay.com
