THE GLOW FACTOR



I'm always on the hunt for the perfect skincare product and forever eager to try out the cult classics. You've probably heard of this one - the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel - winning awards and being praised by YouTubers galore. This non-foaming cleanser supposedly restores radiance and reveals enviably soft, supple skin. While the hefty price tag adds a certain luxury element to the equation, I believe to have enough common sense to judge the product relentless. There is one specific element to this cleanser that I just cannot get enough of though - and that is the glow factor.

Minu kätte on järjekordselt sattunud kultustoode - nimelt Oskia Renaissance puhastusgeel - millest kindlasti kuulnud olete, kui ilublogijatel silma peal hoiate. Lubab see taastada elastsust ning esile tuua kadestusväärselt pehme naha. Kuigi see on puhastusgeeli kohta üsna kallis (umbes 30€), lisab see nahale väga ilusa sisemise kuma, mida mina pole üheski teises nahahooldustootes veel leidnud.

The Oskia Reneissance Cleansing Gel is a gel-to-oil formulated cleaning gel, meaning it applies as a gel, but turns into an oil in contact with water. The gel has a pink tint and smells somewhat herbal (but not in an obnoxious way) and rosy. I've heard some complain about the scent, but to me it feels like the most comforting aroma - it adds a little spa-like feeling every time I wash my face. You can use a muslin cloth or warm water to rinse it off. It leaves a little residue on the face after washing, but it is the good kind. My skin feels plumper, firmer and glowing. Without boring you with the ingredients too much, it's the pumpkin enzyme in this that supposedly purges pores and dissolves dead cells on the skin's surface, with A Palmitate improving the appearance of sun damage, dry and mature skin by promoting elasticity. Vitamins C and E restore the skin and protect against free radicals and the environment. Omega 6, Magnesium and Vitamins B2 and C promote firmness and Oskia's siganture MSM detoxifies, soothes and reduces inflammation. I've felt all of these effects (well, maybe except for the mature skin) and feel it delivers on the promises.

Oskia Reneissance puhastusgeel muutub veega kokkupuutel õliks ning seda on lihtne maha pesta. Selleks soovitatakse kasutada kas musliini või loputada lihtsalt sooja veega. Geel on roosat värvi ja roosilise-taimse lõhnaga. Olen lugenud, et mõnele see aroom ei meeldi, kuid minule mõjub see väga lõõgastavalt ning muudab näopesemise spa-taoliseks kogemuseks. Peale loputamist jääb nahale kerge niisutatud tunne ning see tundub prink, pehme ja kumav. Koostisosadeks on kõrvitsaensüüm, mis lubab puhastada poore ning eemaldada surnud naharakke, vitamiin A palmitaat aitab päikesekahjustuse mõjusid vähendada ning naha elastsust taastada. Vitamiinid C ja kaitsevad vabade radikaalide ning keskkonnamõjude eest. Omega 6, magneesium, vitamiinid B2 ja C soodustavad naha prinkust ning Oskia signatuurkoostisosa MSM puhastab, vähendab nahaturset ning põletikulisust. Olen positiivseid tulemusi näinud, nii et julgen öelda, et toode peab lubadustest kinni.
On the negative side – it does leave you with a dent in your wallet (around 30€ worth of a dent) and doesn’t have much strength in the way of make-up removing. This, in a way, might elongate your cleansing routine and ain't nobody got time for that. You might question why you would need an expensive cleanser that doesn’t remove make-up and the answer is… that glow though. It has a way of making the skin feel plumped, moisturized and radiant. It reduces the appearance of flaws in the skin (my damn big pores for example). It is best used as a morning cleanser (when you’re not wearing any make-up yet) or in the evening as a second cleanser when you’ve taken off most of it. Using it as a make-up remover would probably just waste the expensive product and not let it work its magic on the skin, using it after, however, makes the difference astoundingly visible. I saw great results with one-two uses already and have been hooked ever since. The packaging has also been criticised for being completely opaque and not showing the signs of depletion. To me, all of it is outweighed by the effect it leaves on my skin and the spa-like experience it creates while using it. Hey, a hundred beauty bloggers can’t be wrong and they got me hooked on yet another skincare product. What's your favourite skincare product?

Negatiivse külje pealt jätab selle toote ostmine üsna suure augu (umbes 30€ suuruse augu). Ühtlasi pole see eriti efektiivne meigieemaldi, mis omakorda võib õhtust-hommikust näopesurutiini pikendada. Kellel selleks aega on. Võite küsida, et miks siis vaja on kallist näopesugeeli, mis meiki ei eemalda.. vastus on, et see kuma though. See parandab naha olukorda, niisutab ja virgutab seda ning vähendab ebatäiuste välimust (näiteks mu ilmatuma suured poorid). Kõige parem on seda kasutada hommikuse näopesu ajal, kui meiki veel pole lisatud või õhtul peale meigieemaldust. Mina nägin näonahas muutusi juba paari-kahe kasutuskorraga ning olen seda sellest ajast peale järjepidevalt kasutanud. Ka pakendit on kritiseeritud läbipaistmatu välimuse tõttu, mille pärast lõppevad varud jäävad märkamata ja täiendamata. Kõik negatiivsed küljed kaalub aga toote efektiivsus minu jaoks üles ning jätkan kindlasti selle kasutamist. Mis on teie lemmik nahahooldustoode?
