oskia skincare london | what's in my handbag





For those who haven't heard of WIMH, it's a platform where it allows you to take a sneak peak into others handbags such a fashion, beauty and creative insiders, because who doesn't love to see the beauty essentials others carry around with them on a daily basis?! You can also upload your own handbag contents! Alongside this, you can create your account an request trys of products that are featured in peoples bags! Letting you discover the beauty products everybody loves, and trying sample sizes. It's a great way to share and discover beauty products, whether they are a cult product or something you've never heard of it. 

I've had various different samples from the requests I tried, such as Loreal mythic oil, percy and reed dry conditioner and bare minerals foundation and a mini kabuki brush. I think it's a great way to trial and test new products that you wouldn't normally try, or have the chance to! Especially fab because it's free. 

This weeks try was the OSKIA London Renaissance Mask, which has won 5 awards.OSKIA is a British high performance luxury skincare brand. The name is derived from the ancient English for 'delivering nutrients' and 'beauty'.With key actives such MSM, Passionfruit AHA's, Papaya Enzymes, Swiss Garden Cress Liposomes, Ribose. Best Anti-Ageing Mask - Celebs on Sunday Beauty Awards 2011; Best New Product - UK Beauty Awards 2011, Best Mask - Red Magazine; Top Beauty Find of 2010 - The Beauty Shortlist. This sample is 15ml, which as you can see from the photo's is a generous amount. Full size is 50ml at £48.50. Pricey indeed. I do love the packaging too, very luxurious, and definitely something that would look great on your dressing table I think.

The mask is a Nutri-Active Brightening and Resurfacing Mask, which is designed to increase cell turnover, boost radiance and packed with OSKIA’s trademark blend of beauty-boosting nutrients, as well as being deep cleansing, reducing pore size, blockages and spot formation and reducing the appearance of fine lines, imperfections and refines the complexion, as well as a vast array of other benefits it says on their website.

The product is a light pink colour at first, however turns white when massaged into the skin, the smell is just delightful, delicious even. You should apply to cleansed skin and leave for 10-20 minutes, before washing off, where your skin will feel SO much smoother. Trust me, it does.

Does this sound like something you would like to try?
Or, maybe you know some cheaper alternatives?

Much Love
