As a beauty addict and blogger I try a lot of different products, but every now and again there is one that really blows me away. The Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel is one one of those game changing products - once you have tried this you will wonder how you ever lived without it. I have to start by saying that the word gel doesn't really do this cleanser justice, because it really is much more than any other gel I have ever tried before. In fact, this is one of the nicest formulas I have ever used in a cleanser.

Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel

Oskia are a fantastic British brand and they are one of the rare natural skincare brands that combine nature and science in their forward thinking products. The range is formulated by a team of doctors, scientists and nutritionists and is touted by every glossy magazine as one of the must-try ranges and I have to say I wholeheartedly agree.

When you pump out the pink gel from the packaging you can smell the wonderful delicate scent of rose and chamomile. You then apply the gel to dry skin - I like to remove my make-up first, but this does tackle make-up if you choose not to. When massaged in to the skin, the thick pink gel becomes a soft silky oil. The texture is so luxurious that it makes cleansing a really pampering experience, I love to really take my time to work this in to the skin and make the most of the gorgeous ingredients. When it comes in contact with water the cleanser emulsifies and becomes a milk, washing off and leaving the skin completely clean.

Pumpkin enzymes deeply clean pores and remove dead skin cells, packed with vitamins such as Vitamin A, C and E it repairs sun damage and fortifies the skin. Starflower adds omega 6 and MSM which is a bio-available form of sulphur and is known for it's detoxifying and anti-inflammatory properties. The science behind the ingredients is very impressive but the performance is equally so, this leaves skin softer, brighter and more even toned, it is suitable for all skin types and is an utter pleasure to use. I really can't recommend this highly enough, it really is the nicest cleanser I have ever used. This will transform the mundane ritual of cleansing in to the best part of the day, pampering, indulgent and incredibly effective I have never had such good results from a cleanser before. 

Thank you to the lovely Sam and Teresa for letting me share my latest product love with you, it's such a pleasure to write for one of my favourite blogs.
