Product Review: Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel

I know when to hold up my hands and admit when I was wrong (about beauty products anyway, maybe not in other aspects of my life but...) You may remember that I expressed my "Disappointment In A Few Expensive Products", well I may have given one a reprieve.

Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel
The Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel £28 has been raved about time and time again and despite my first initial reaction I gave it another go and completely changed my mind (I'm a Gemini, what can I say!)

I think where I went wrong was just using it in the morning, it was a bit too heavy. This cleanser performs best at removing make up, so first I use another an eye remover to break down the bulk of my warpaint, then massage in two pumps of this peach gel cleanser over my skin and gently wipe away any left over make up with a damp muslin cloth.

The main problem I had with this cleanser is that the pump on my bottle is pretty stiff, I don't know whether that's just mine but squeezing out product is quite difficult, plus because of the packaging you have no idea how much product you actually have left. Because of that fact I don't think I would repurchase it, but if you can get over that fact it's fabulous at removing make up.

P.S This cleanser even gets the thumbs up from my mum, who doesn't always remember to remove her make up at night no matter how many times I tell her off, naughty!

Are there any products that you've changed you mind on and given a Reprieve?

XOXO Claire

  2. The pump would annoy me so much as well! It sounds like a good cleanser other wise
