OSKIA Perfect Cleanser

Being a conscious consumer is important to me and a major factor that drives my purchases. It just feels better to support products from brands that align with my values, are ethnically diverse, are sustainably produced, are cruelty-free and not made with any questionable ingredients. For that reason, OSKIA is a brand that I can feel good about buying. Their ethos, nutritional skincare approach and sustainable practices resonates with me. I'm also a big fan of their extensively researched formulations that only use safe, proven, skin friendly actives and nutrients to deliver high performance results. I have tried a number of their products and while I've discovered some favorites like the OSKIA Renaissance Mask (reviewed here), Renaissance Cleansing Gel (reviewed here), and Super 16 Advanced Nutri-Active Collagen Serum (reviewed here), I'm still on a journey of discovery with this brand.  The OSKIA Perfect Cleanser is my latest discovery.

OSKIA Perfect Cleanser

$56 (125 mL/ 4.22 oz)

The Product
OSKIA Perfect Cleanser is a nourishing cleansing balm that transforms into a light milk when mixed with water. Coconut penetrates skin to remove excess oil, make-up and pore-blocking impurities, without stripping moisture, leaving skin feeling refreshed and clean. Rejuvenating almond and sesame seed oils restores the skin's lipid barrier to increase elasticity. Antioxidant vitamin E and rosehip seed oil shield from free radical damage and harmful bacteria. Potent prebiotics protect the skin’s natural ecosystem so that skin remains healthy and nourished. Jojoba oil and other antioxidants soften and repair the lipid barrier. The brand's signature MSM (Methyl Sulphonyl Methane) Repair and Regenerate Complex stimulates collagen production for increased suppleness, while shea butter, jojoba and sesame seed oil soften the texture. The milk delivers anti-inflammatory properties to soothe irritated or dry skin and reduce redness for long lasting comfort. Suitable for all skin types, particularly mature, dry or hormonal skin. This product is vegan and cruelty-free. It also does not contain any parabens, pthalates, sulfates, artificial fragrances or colorants.

My Experience
OSKIA Perfect Cleanser has a grainy balm consistency and a pleasant fresh rosy scent that I've come to associate with OSKIA skincare products. The rich emollient texture feels lovely on my skin and lends well to massage which I'm wont to do with this cleanser. Adding a little water transforms it into almost milky emulsion which feels like it further breaks down any dirt or products I have on my face. It rinses cleanly, leaving my face feeling refreshed, hydrated, radiant and really soft. I really like this cleanser for how it deep cleans in the most comforting and hydrating way. I prefer to use it in the mornings but find myself using it in the evenings as well during the colder months. Being indoors all the time with heating and trying some new products have done a number on my skin at times but I can always count on Perfect Cleanser to soothe and replenish any irritations. It has truly been a skin saver. The price point is on the higher side for a cleanser but the luxurious experience and skin soothing results it delivers make it worth it for me. I think this could be my perfect cleanser for cold weather and when my skin isn't at it's best. I still love the OSKIA Renaissance Cleansing Gel though. I rarely do this but I actually purchased a second tube before finishing even my first one. While this cleanser works well for my dry skin, a friend of mine with oily skin told me she also loves it.

Oskia Perfect Cleanser can be purchased from Nordstrom, Space NK, Cult Beauty, Look Fantastic, Bloomingdales and directly from OSKIA. Read my other OSKIA product reviews.
