The Daily Beauty: Oskia Renaissance Hand Cream

by Sasha Wilkins on January 8, 2014 · 4 comments


Between  laptop sessions and  the seemingly endless washing up, my hands have been suffering this winter. To try to combat that horrid tight, dry and weather-roughened feeling,  I have stationed tubes of hand cream all over my apartment, from the basin in the bathroom to the kitchen sink, via my study desk and the hall table.

My current favourite is a new release from Oskia: the Renaissance Hand Cream. It hits all three necessary points for an effective hand cream: it smells utterly delicious, of garden roses in the summer, it is intensely nourishing, giving baby smooth skin in seconds, and isn’t all greasy.

Its efficacy comes from being packed full of emollients: a blend of Macademia Seed and Rosa Canina Oils, both of which are rich in omegas, to improve hydration and elasticity,  moisturising Shea butter. There are also gentle organic AHAs, derived from passionflower, lemon, grape and pineapple to suppleness and hydration.

Sounds perfect- definitely need to try it out with my dry hands I’m currently experiencing from this cold weather.

I haven’t heard of this brand before. I’ve been using hand cream loads this winter though so it sounds lovely.

Love From Kelly

Same here, I have tubes everywhere in the house. Different brands. But my hands and nails still suffer. Only Dr Hauschka seems the best but the scent is nothing special.. Never heard of Oskia before.. It’s a bit expensive but maybe I can get sample before buying and try… I am actually accumulating all those non used products.

Thank you for this post, I am always looking for a nice new hand cream. The fact that this one smells of roses is also a bonus. I love Elemis and Clarins, but have this one on my list now. x
