Oskia Renaissance Mask

A while ago I signed up to ‘What’s In My Handbag’ as many people had said how great it is for beauty product inspiration and for trying out samples of new products. Looking through the various beauty products, I came across a mask called the Renaissance Mask by a company called Oskia.
I read through all the info about it and it sounded like a really lovely product, plus at the time my skin needed a little rejuvenating, so I thought I’d give it a go.

The reviews of the mask are absolutely glowing and it’s also won a few awards, so I ordered the travel size (15ml for £16) as the 50ml at £48.50 seemed a little pricey for a try out.

 The mask is meant to help brighten the skin and help renew the skins’ cells. It contains Butterbur which is an anti-histamine to help sooth the skin and it’s also packed full of fruity boosters too.

The first thing you notice when you take the lid off, is the gorgeous smell. I’m not joking when I say it was hard not to eat it! With ingredients such as passion fruit, lemon, grape & pineapple you can guess just how fruity it smells, plus it also contains rose, giving it a little floral note too. But best of all it also contains ingredients that are anti-bacterial, which helps with congested pores.

It’s also quite a pretty rose pink colour.

The directions suggest that it is applied to dry cleansed skin, so I followed orders. The first thing that surprised me was that as I applied the buttery mask it started to turn into a white cream. Initially it felt quite heavy on my skin, rather like a rich night cream, but I did as I was told and left it for 10 minutes. This isn’t washed off immediately though, as you are meant to splash a little water onto your face to turn the mask into a sort of cleansing milk. Gently massaging some water into the mask makes it milky and once that’s done, it can be washed off.

Now usually I’m a little sceptical about products that say you can see a difference after one use, but I can honestly say I did notice a change in my skin. My face looked brighter, but without feeling taught & my skin felt incredibly smooth. I’ve used this a few times now (as you can see from the state of the pot – sorry!) and I really do love it, especially on those days where you’re skin is feeling really tired and drained (ahem, nothing to do with the heavy weekend & alcohol…). 
So if you feel like you need a real skin boost but don’t want to keep going off to the spa, I really would recommend the Renaissance Mask.
