Oskia Renaissance Nutri-Active Brightening and Resurfacing Mask – With fruit-derived Alpha-Hydroxy Acids; this mask kick-starts the regeneration process and minimises the likelihood of blocked pores and breakouts by gently dissolving the bonds that bind dulling dead cells to skin’s surface. Lactic Acid and Oskia’s signature MSM, then help reduce the appearance of wrinkles by optimising cell turnover and stimulating collagen synthesis, so my skin appears ‘plumped’ and healthy. Swiss Garden Cress Liposomes help inhibit melanin production, so new dark spots are prevented and skin has the chance to correct itself, while Prebiotic Alpha-Glucan Oligosaccharide, effectively gobbles up bad, blemish causing bacteria to leave my skin less susceptible to breakouts.
A one-stop skin-perfecting shop, this mask does everything bar cook you dinner. It’s suitable for all skin types and has made my lack lustre skin look lovely… and not to mention as soft as a baby’s bottom.
Oskia Micro Exfoliating Nutri-Active Brightening and Refining Exfoliant – I’m dubbing this as a hybrid between a cleansing balm and gentle exfoliator, the product is beautifully soft and creamy whilst packing the punch it advertises. It uses silica and MSM particles to slough at the skin softly, and a splash of water halfway through massage can always be added to lessen the sand-down. The balm-base hydrates, the beads buff away dead skin cells and as a result, I’m left with seriously silky smooth cheeks – and I can’t stop stroking them! OSKIA is one of those brands that has been under the wire for a while, but I recon it’s about to hit the big time fairly soon.
If we’re getting scientific, the exfoliation ingredients are a mixture of silica and pure MSM granules and the ingredients list is an extensive rundown of ‘nutritional’ ingredients that really feel expensive. This pot of joy is gentle enough to bring out around 2/3 times a week, and as a result, my skin is left soft, glowing and super smooth.
So what’s the catch? Well…it’s not cheap. It’s £46.00 for 50ml which definitely moves this one up to the ‘treat’ category and not something I’d use 2/3 times a week, which is a shame, because I think this is when I’d see the full results. But for me, it’s not realistic. So if you can afford it – buy it! If not, then get someone to buy it for you! Perhaps a birthday treat?
These are the two things I’ve been loving from OSKIA this month, but you can see here for my thoughts on some of their other products.
