I have to admit that I’ve bought Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel after seeing non-stop raves about it pretty much everywhere. And I am always in for a nice cleanser, so decided to see if it really is that good.
Yes, it is amazing! It has a peachy-pink colour, lovely rosy scent and a nice texture. I also have to mention the convenient pump and a nice chic minimalistic design.
I personally apply it and massage the skin for several minutes and then wash off (gel turns into milk). It feels heavenly on the skin, moisturising and nourishing but not heavy or greasy. And itRead More
If you are a regular reader, you know that I try to feature a lot of cleansing balms and melting cleansers. I find that these work the best for very dry and sensitive skin. And if you have a similar skin type – hopefully find those posts helpful. Here is the first round-up of such cleansers, and there will be a second one with time.
Today I want to share about the Balance Me Cleanse and Smooth Face Balm, which was featured in my February favourites. And it is definitely one of the best cleansers I have ever used.
Why is it so good?
Since it is oil based (camellia, kukui nut and rosehip oils with cocoa, mango and shea butters, English camomile and red mandarin essential oils) – it doesn’t leave the skin feeling dried out or tight and you don’t get that I-need-to-put-on-a-moisturizer-immediately feeling. In fact, it’s the opposite, the skin is nourished, moisturized, smooth and soft.

You all know that I love my Clarins skincare, but since I’ve already tried most of their products for my skin type (some of them I have re-purchased more than once), I’ve decided to try some other brands, along with Clarins.
And the brands that I’ve decided to add to my routine are REN and Ole Henrikson. I already posted several features about REN, (speaking of REN, I am really intrigued by this new product) and it’s the first time I am writing about Ole Henriksen actually.
I’d like to share about the face cream that I’ve been loving a lot lately – Sheer Transformation Creme.
- Actiwhite™ and licorice: Prevents and corrects discolouration and evens skin tone with an effective combination of pea extract and sugar.
- Vitamin C: Stimulates collagen production.
- Fruit and beta hydroxy acids: Retexturises and soothes lines.
- Sandalwood, geranium, licorice and chamomile: Soothes, replenishes, balances and purifies the skin.

But does that all work?Read More
Today I want to tell you about the Clarins One Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser which was the part of this set that I’ve bought for myself as a post-holidays treat.
Since it’s a part of the Clarins’ girls top 5 products, I had high expectations and it did not disappoint.
It is basically a face wash and scrub two-in-one which means that you do your cleansing in only one step, as the name suggests.
I find that it does a great job: removes all traces of makeup and cleanses the skin really well, without drying it out ( I have very dry skin and I could not believe that I did not have that ”tight” feeling afterwards). Although, I usually prefer enzyme peels over scrubs, this one is rather gentle. I’d say it’s spot on, not too “scrubby” but just good enough to exfoliate the skin.
I also like the lovely orange scent, which is a nice touch; this is especially awesome in theRead More
Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel has been my exfoliator of choice for the last two years or more, so I am not sure why I never wrote about it.
This year Elemis actually celebrates 10th anniversary of this, already a cult product, and teamed up with British designer Laura Oakes to create this special edition tropical design. Elemis has also teamed up with SOCCO; for every product sold, Elemis will provide ‘5-in-1 Pentavalent vaccine to immunise a child in Africa agains 5 leading diseases.’
I was actually sent the product with a special edition design to show you, so here it is.
So how does it work?
Papaya Enzyme peel is aRead More
