It’s almost time for the unboxing of the November LF Beautybox, but before we do that I first want to review the last product that came in the October edition. The product I’m talking about is the Oskia Renaissance Mask. It’s supposedly a pretty popular mask around the beauty community but I had never heard of it before. Today I’m going to let you guys know what I think of it and whether or not I think it deserves more attention. If you’re interested in finding that out, make sure you keep on reading!
First of all: how cute is this packaging?! Because it came inside my LF Beauty Box and it’s quite and expensive product this isn’t the full size. However, they did decide to still put it in a little jar. The jar is pretty small but absolutely adorable. The bottom part is made out of matte plastic and the lid is white and has a little design on it.
I think the packaging is very simplistic but also very classic. It shows luxury and it feels really nice even though it’s just a deluxe sample. I can’t imagine how luxury the full size would feel.
The product itself is very unique. It has a bit of a mandarin colour to it and it looks quite jelly. Until the moment I touched it I was pretty convinced this was going to feel like a gel-based product, but the second I touched it I found out that wasn’t the case. It’s actually quite a dense feeling product and it’s different from literally everything I have ever felt before. It’s very hard to describe but what I can tell you is that it does feel really pleasant.
The mask itself smells pretty nice. It’s a fresh smell and it kinda reminds me of fruit, but I can’t put my finger on which fruit it actually smells like.
The application process of the mask is pretty simple, but slightly different from the usual procedure: you have to apply it on dry cleansed skin and you have to massage it in for a few seconds. When it turns white you know the ingredients have been activated and you can stop massaging it in. After everything has turned white you wait 10 to 20 minutes depending on how sensitive your skin is and then you rinse everything off.
After waiting for about 20 minutes I rinsed everything off and took a closer look at my skin. My skin looked really smooth and even. It felt soft and silky and it felt like it was in a good state. It wasn’t greasy at all (while it was very greasy when I applied the product) and it felt very fresh and renewed.
Obviously I don’t know if the quality of my skin has changed that drastically because I don’t have the instruments to test that, but from what I can see and feel this mask does an amazing job. I actually enjoy it more than I initially expected to. It’s a great product!
So, this mask is definitely a win for me. I know the full size is pretty expensive but to be honest I think it’s worth it. I do really believe in this mask. I actually feel like it makes a difference and putting it on is just a great and relaxing experience. From the masks that I have tried this is by far one of the best and I’ll definitely continue using it!
The Oskia Renaissance Mask is available at Lookfantastic for €57,45 (50ml).
That was it for today’s review. I hope you enjoyed reading it and be sure to let me know if you ever use face masks and if so, which one is your favourite?
