Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel

Or the one that made my skin happy. I put off buying a new cleanser for the longest time, but when my old one was no longer cutting it I decided to venture elsewhere. I tried a sample of the Perfect Cleansing Oil but it was a little too heavy for my liking and was always out of stock. Long story short, after seeing the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel receiving high praise from some of my favourite bloggers I took the plunge and added it to my Beauty Bay cart...

Now this cleansing gel promises a lot of things. It says it is suitable for a variety of skin types, is loaded with a heap of nutrients and is paraben free.  It may not be 100 per cent organic but it's packed with enough skin-loving ingredients that I wasn't overly bothered about that. Now this is described as a cleansing gel, which is a tad misleading. Once massaged into the skin it becomes more of an oil without the thick, greasy texture. This is so lightweight and it doesn't feel heavy on the skin at all which is something I like having combination skin. Side note: I feel like my skin's more on the normal side of things these days. I only really get oily down my nose (sigh) and the odd blemish. 

In terms of makeup removal I tend to use a micellar water first and then follow up with this to get my face makeup off and it does remove anything I may have missed. It also leaves my skin feeling ridiculously clean and super smooth. It's love.

While this cleanser may not be the easiest for us to track down in New Zealand, hence making a blind-buy a little bit of a risk, I'd highly recommend this offering from Oskia. It hasn't irritated my skin and I love it. I feel like this big bottle is going to last me a while too which is always a bonus.

-Have you tried the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel? What did you think of it?

*I hope you are all having a brilliant start to the week. Yesterday I did a spot of Christmas shopping with Mum. I wasn't tooo spendy seeing as I kinda got that out of the way on the weekend. Whoops. 'Nuff said. Today's looking a bit low key but I'm sure I'll be daydreaming about iceskating with Harry Styles at some point.


  1. Interesting! Everyone seems to love this stuff - didn't know BeautyBay stocked it too, that may lead to a purchase tbh. Couldn't justify it off CultBeauty. x

  2. Yeah neither did I until I did some searching around to see if it was a bit cheaper on there. You should definitely pick it up Nicole x

  3. Definitely the next cleanser on my list!


  4. As I've told you on Twitter, I've also recently purchased it as well and I didn't imagine to like it this much. My skin is so incredibly smooth and polished, I've really underestimated its awesomeness. I already have so many cleansers I swear by but this really outstands them by far. Love, love!

  5. That's so good to hear Alice. I'm glad you're loving it as well! I think it's such a brilliant cleanser. x
