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.”

HG: Current favourite Retinol Serum, PTR Retinol Fusion PM

Let me introduce you to one of my favourite serums, it’s one of those that made it into the HG status. Believe me, when it comes to HG status, I don’t give it away easily. I think in the next coming weeks or so I’ll be writing several review of HG products. When you’ve tried a lot of products like yours truly, it becomes harder and harder to get impressed by something let alone putting ‘HG’ next to it. But when it delivers impressive result and you want to keep on buying it, it’s definitely worth it.

Vitamin A or retinol is something that I want in my routine because it’s really good for the skin. If you’re above 21, you might want to invest early in retinol because it provides such a good result in making your skin texture and smoothness wonderful. It’s also a great ingredient to help with cellular turnover. On top of that, research shown that retinol is one of the ingredients that doesn’t plateau over long period of usage, on the contrary, the benefit increases overtime and your skin condition will look even better. However, some people do get a sensitive reaction from using retinol such as sensitivity, dryness, redness, etc. I myself, follow those that choose to have a break period in between the retinol serum usage because my skin is really dry and at times suffer from redness and I don’t wanna push it too far.

What is it?

This is basically a potent over the counter retinol serum. Though it contains 1.5% it’s not to be mistaken by doctor prescribed Tretinoin. It’s also loaded with vitamin C (Ascorbyl Palmitate) and E (Tocopherol). There’s also Bisabol, Squalene and Alchol present. I’ll discuss more in details.
