Kan’s view:

Oskia’s perfect cleanser is actually a thick cleansing balm with not-very strong fragrance, that you massage gently into dry skin. On adding water, the balm turns into a light white milk that lifts away impurities leaving the skin soft and moisturised.

Unfortunately, I never experienced the whole impurity lifting, purifying and rejuvenating effects of the balm. My skin felt really soft and smooth but with an hour, I could see tiny under-the-skin bumpy formations in the chin and cheek areas. 

I remember once when after a really long day of messing around with dusty old files, I decided to test Oskia’s cleanser for parts other than my face. I massaged a nickel sized amount into my hands for at least three to four minutes before mixing in some water and rinsing off the product. Once dry, I noticed that my hands still had smudges of dirt left. 😦

I have tried using this product regularly for atleast 3 weeks, during winter, summer and spring. And have not been impressed. AT ALL.

I would suggest Oskia to provide sample size of the cleanser that can be used for a week before the full size product may be bought.
