When I first reviewed this product back in 2010 it was for a men’s blog but to paraphrase Victor Kiam, I liked it so much I bought it myself so I thought I’d spruce up my old review and shove it on here.
OSKIA produce a range of products that are designed by a team of nutritionists and cosmetic scientists to provide the essential cell nutrients your skin requires to function properly and rebuild cell health and they believe that ingredients should only be used if they are scientifically proven to work and not simply for their organic or natural status.
OSKIA Renaissance Mask is part of their Skinsense range which is aimed at men and women in their mid-twenties to late forties. It contains a host of natural ingredients however the key ingredient is MSM-Regen Complex™ – the most bio-available form of sulphur which provides your body with the natural materials it needs to make collagen and elastin itself – aiding cell regeneration and giving you healthy, supple skin.
The first thing you’ll notice when you open it is the smell, it’s fruity, very fruity! So fruity in fact that the first thing I did was stick my finger in and tasted it, not something I’d recommend you do because it doesn’t taste as nice as it smells!
Application is straight forward enough, apply a thin layer to clean skin and leave it for 10 to 15 minutes before washing off with warm water. The mask is a peachy pink colour but once you’ve massaged it onto your face it turns white, this allows you to check that you’ve not missed a spot. I tend to use the mask once a week however it’s suggested that you use it no more than twice a week, more than this and I doubt your skin will absorb the nutrients contained so you’ll really just be wasting your hard earned cash if you decide to apply it nightly.
What I initially found was that after just one application I noticed how smooth it left my skin feeling and after just a few uses I actually noticed myself how bright my skin was becoming, this was reinforced by friends and colleagues who also commented on how good my complexion has become since I started using it.
Priced at £48.50 the OSKIA Renaissance Mask may seem expensive but a little goes a long way and anything that provokes unsolicited compliments has got to be value for money in my book.
