Oskia Skincare Pure Nutritional Skincare: Bedtime Boost & Micro Exfoliating Balm Review

Some products are just packaged so beautifully that they have instant appeal. The first time I laid eyes on Oskia I just thought it was a stunning, beautiful skincare range. Simple and elegant.

Oskia is derived from an ancient Greek work, meaning ‘delivering nutrients’ and ‘beauty’.

Oskia products also include their MSM-Regen Complex™, a naturally collagen boosting, repairing and regenerating ingredient. It’s also paraben free and uses 98% natural or nature-identical ingredients. Got it?!

Now….I have had these two products for ages and have given them a good test!

Gorgeous packaging:

The two products I tried was the Micro Exfoliating Balm and the Bedtime Beauty Boost Cream.

Let’s start with the beauty balm! I love any kind of cleansing balm as long as it washes off easily. With a balm I really feel like I can work off the dirt and make up.

They say:
This gentle but very effective micro-exfoliating balm is formulated to not only buff away tired skin cells and impurities, but to also replenish the lipid barrier to leave your skin comfortable with increased radiance and softness.

With MSM, Zinc Glycine, Prebiotics, Omega 3, 6 & 9, Vitamin E, Rosehip, Kukui Nut, and Sweet Almond Oil

This balm exfoliator/cleanser works extremely well. It has a thick balm texture but melts easily in the hands once you’ve scooped some out.

The granules in the balm are extremely fine and lovely to work into the skin without any nasty reactions (my skin is sensitive and doesn’t always like exfoliators). It also washes off quite nicely too leaving me with super soft skin.

I think it’s quite a nice alternative to a normal exfoliator because the balm hydrates the skin at the same time. I used this about 2-3 times a week and it was enough to keep my skin feeling very soft.

The balm is £46 for 50ml which lasted me for ages – I’ve been using it for 4 months and I have about 40% left.

Bedtime Beauty Boost is a luxurious night cream.

They say:

Light in texture but rich in essential cell nutrients an addition to hydrating, brightening and anti-ageing actives, it is designed to help stimulate the skin’s natural regeneration process, iron out the appearance of wrinkles, reduce age spots and give skin a naturally radiant, youthful glow.

This cream reminds me of yoghurt! It smells like slightly sour milk (in a good way! Like…creme fraiche) and has a similar texture:

This is a really nice night cream. It’s fairly rich despite being light in texture – it’s quite good for my skin which can be dry at the best of times and the next day my skin definitely looked better.

On the downside, I felt like it stung some of my sensitive bits (at the top of my cheekbones – any allergies flare up here first).

The key to this product is to apply it lightly – when I applied to much it made my skin quite oily in the day. You really only need a little bit but when I did use it, my skin did look quite dewy the next day.

On my skin:

It does take a moment to sink in and feels a little tacky for a few moments after. I think this would work best for drier skin types rather than anyone overly oily.

This cream is £74 for 50ml.
