My HG Gel Cleanser: Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel

I think reviewing cleanser is the easiest. That’s why I’m reviewing them like no tomorrow. But this cleanser here is currently my holy grail next to the Merumaya balm because of its texture, ingredients, scent and feel.

Oskia is a skincare brand that uses MSM at the heart of its ingredient. Here a little bit about MSM that I quoted directly from Oskia’s website.

“MSM (Methyl Sulphonyl Methane) is a natural form of organic sulphur compound that is found in all living organisms. It is the purest and most bio-available form of sulphur, one of the essential minerals crucial to life and the regeneration of cells. MSM has traditionally been taken as a food supplement to increase joint health for peak flexibility and mobility, as well as for strong hair and nails, beautiful skin, and numerous other health conditions from leaky gut syndrome and ME to damaged joints, arthritis, osteoporosis and psoriasis. OSKIA is the first premium skincare range to harness MSM’s highly beneficial properties.

MSM can benefit all skin types and ages. It is known to have been highly effective in the treatment of conditions including acne, eczema and psoriasis, as well as sensitive, and problematic skin, and helps keep skin healthy and strong to guard against premature ageing and skin damage.”

Kypris Moonlight Catalyst the Retinol Alternative

Let’s make this review short and concise. I have the urge to review this because alot of people been asking what’s the alternative for Retinol for pregnant women? Or I have few questions regarding whether this is safe for pregnant women or not.

First of all, the two ingredients that people will mostly avoid when they’re pregnant are salicylic acid and retinol. Though, when I was pregnant with my daughter I didn’t really avoid salicylic acid. One I was young and didn’t know better. Two some years after that several dermatologists and scientists assured me that the content of salicylic acid in a toner is not high enough to consider it a threat to the fetus. Alas, for those pregnant ladies out there I really suggest you to read all the information regarding ingredients in skincare and what’s best to avoid and make an informed decision on your own.

Other than that, this is truly a really good alternative for a retinol serum, that doesn’t really contain retinol, or any other ingredient that is dangerous for pregnant women or even worrysome (I hope so) and could be a great pick for those looking for a smoother skin and refined one while they’re pregnant and don’t want to use retinol.
