I can still remember the first Oskia product that bowled me over. Get Up & Glow. Wonderful stuff for a hit of moisture and punch of dew on a foggy old morning. It made its way all over my face throughout the spring of 2013, and it was one of my best finds that year.
A couple of months later, I found myself having tea with founder Georgie Cleeve, who told me that Oskia formulated around the mineral MSM, and that it had been so helpful in healing an old injury that she was led to believe it might work wonders in skincare.
It did – and does. To date, Oskia have launched products containing MSM and a line up of other brilliant ingredients at their own pace, choosing to release a newbie when Cleeve divines gaps in the range – and only then. The result is a tightly-curated and undeniably effective range that I’m delighted to introduce one of you to.
In this giveaway, I’ve tried to pop together a fairly comprehensive routine that’ll offer an idea of how strong Oskia’s wares are across the board. Without further ado //
Oskia Perfect Cleanser / A thick balm is the way to go if you like to give your skin a good massage as your cleanse – which you should absolutely do if you want your skin to be healthier. I tend to take my make-up off with an oil or make-up remover, and then go to town on really working this into my skin before removing it with a damp flannel.
Oskia Super 16 / I’ve previously written a full review of this serum here, but if you’ve scant on time: it’s brilliant. Properly brilliant. A one stop ‘better skin in a bottle’ if ever there were one.
Oskia Get Up & Glow / Does what it says on the tin. Very slippy and quickly-absorbed (so you won’t need to wait around to apply moisturiser/SPF) and really does lend skin oomph.
Oskia Micro Exfoliating Balm / If you like to feel a scrub on your skin but don’t want to incur the damage usually wreaked by physical exfoliants, get your hands on this. It is satisfyingly scrubby but won’t damage the barrier of your skin and will also add some nourishment.
Oskia Skin Smoothing Massage Candle / This is probably second only to Laura Mercier’s Secret Camouflage as the product I’ve mentioned most on these pages for good reason – it’s a candle and skincare in one: what’s not to love?
Oskia Pure MSM Beauty Supplement / As mentioned earlier, Oskia really rate MSM. This mineral version will help to encourage collagen and keratin production and will therefore up the lustre of skin, hair and nails.
