Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel Dupe?
I have been wanting to buy Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel for ages as it's been very hyped up and everyone seems to find it amazing! It's been in my wishlist forever but I end up prioritising other things and haven't come around to purchasing it yet.
The other day I was in Boots and spotted No7 Beautiful Skin Melting Gel Cleanser. I immediately thought it was a similar product to Oskia's cleanser and decided to get a sample. I fell in love with it. I had one of those No7 £5 off skincare coupons and didn't hesitate. Bought the full size (150ml) for just £4.95. Huge bargain!
This is similar to Oskia's cleanser in a sense that it's a gel formula that turns into an oil once you massage it onto the skin. It's enriched with a blend of multivitamins and minerals to hydrate and energise the skin. And it's also got rosehip oil to lock in moisture.
The instructions for use are to massage it into damp skin and wash away with warm water. However, I do it differently. I massage it onto dry skin until it warms up and turns into an oil, then I add a little bit of water to emulsify it and remove it with a hot muslin cloth. It washes off makeup pretty well and leaves my skin clean without feeling tight or dry. It also smells amazing.
The product comes is a tube, which I really like, as it's much more hygienic than pots. But sometimes I wish it had a pump like Oskia's cleanser does. It's just more practical when you're in a rush. But I'm just being fussy, aren't I?
I don't own Oskia's cleanser yet to compare these two properly but I think if you don't quite have the money to splurge, No7 Melting Gel Cleanser is an amazing budget option with very similar concept and does the job pretty well. :)
Have you tried Oskia's or No7's cleansers? If not, which one is your favourite cleanser at the moment? X
