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.”

When I first heard about Odacité I squint at the price. I closed the window of my browser when I realised that the booster serum is only 5ml in size. But then I get the chance to purchase the sample sizes when I ordered some stuff from Naturisimo and I had the pleasure to try a full potter of the Po+G for extra hydration. From that moment on I can’t stop including Odacité in my skincare routine because it’s just too good.
You’ve all heard how I love Ba+S for my eyes area. Now let me tell you about Bi+C (Black Cumin and Cajeput). It’s a blend of Black Cumin, Cajeput and Vitamin E (Tocopherols) oil. Together they make a great dream team for banishing the acne.
I’m not in the mood to go all scientific but here’s why I love this booster. I know the size is really small, but I’ve been using them for almost 3 months and I’m only half way through. The reason is because I’m not the type of person with acne-prone skin but I still need products that can help to aid my skin when PMS hits and acne sprouts out of nowhere. Most of the time I didn’t get to finish most of my acne specific products because I don’t used them all the time. So, for me, the size is perfect! Secondly, it’s really effective to tackle my acne, it helps the smaller bumps to really dries out in a day and for a bigger one and cystic acne to heal and come to head faster. As for cystic acne, it really helps with solving the problem thought it still need more than a week for it to completely heal. It also helps with the acne in terms of hyperpigmentation, when it heals, it doesn’t leave such a bad PIH anymore. If I pick on my acne, it helps to dry and close off the scar faster.
How to use it?

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.

I’m a huge fan of face oil. So there’s no surprise here that lately I have been reviewing face oil. My latest acquisition and object of affection is the Balmology Exotic Rose Beauty Oil. I picked up a sample from Naturisimo, which you can purchase with any full size product purchase on their site. The size is quite generous which is 4 ml for the price of £2. A really great way to test whether you’re going to like the product or not. As it happened to be, I don’t just like it but I love it.
Here’s a complete ingredient list:
Argania spinosa kernel (argan) oil, Macadamia ternifolia (macadamia) oil, Corylus avellana (hazelnut) oil, Rosa canina (rosehip) oil, Persea gratissima (avocado) oil, Tocopherol, Cymbopogon martini (palmarosa), Pelargonium graveolens roseum (geranium bourbon), Boswellia carterii (frankincense), Rosa damascena (rose otto). Naturally occurring in essential oils: citral, citronellol, eugenol, farnesol, geraniol, limonene, linalool.
