REN Clean Bio Active Skincare Review
I recently have discovered the REN skincare range. I purchased 4 products and thought I would share my thoughts and do a REN Clean Bio Active Skincare review.
What I liked about this skincare range is that it uses the latest hi-tech bio actives, which is free from skin-unfriendly synthetic ingredients. This means it is unlikely to get a harmful reaction from it and is great for sensitive skin, it is also animal friendly which makes my heart happy. This skincare range is quite diverse and is on the slightly pricey side but well worth it because its clean skincare.
REN Hydra-Calm Cleansing Milk
At a first glance I really like the packaging, it has double wall cylinder and is encased in a plastic like pouch that shrinks as you use it, which is great as you will not waste any product. I also love cleansers in a pump bottle, I use probably only half a pump when cleansing my face as one full pump I personally think is overkill. It has a really great smell and feels so soothing and ultra moisturizing on the skin which is ideal for dry skin. However I wouldn’t recommend relying on this cleanser to remove all your heavy duty makeup. Overall, I think this is the most gentle cleanser I have ever used.
REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask
I love MASKS, especially ones that show instant results. The mask has a strong fruity delicious scent with a gel like texture which doesn’t really dry on your skin and only needs 10-15 minutes to work. It has now become my go to mask when I need a quick pick me up. When I have an event and need extra glow to my skin, this a great mask to use. It comes with a muslin cloth to remove the mask off easily with warm water.
REN Bio Retinoid Anti-Aging Concentrate
I have always been a big fan of face oils. I enjoy doing facial massages in the evening. The oil has a floral like smell to it. I like the fact that you don’t need to use a lot, hence the bottle will last a long time. The label is a little misleading as its say “Retinoid”. This is a bio retinoid which mean its all natural and no chemicals unlike true retinoid. I’ve been using this for a few weeks now and I do feel it has helped with making my skin smoother. I use this oil at night by warming 5 drops in my hands and apply by gently patting over my face, do a mini facial massage followed with my night cream.
REN Resurfacing AHA Concentrate
Unfortunately this product is discontinued however it is a great serum, which is quite a bit more watery than other serums. It has quite a strong fruity smell to it. You are suppose to use it for 7 consecutive evenings and then break for 14 days before continuing with the next 7 days. It almost works like an exfoliate and leaves your skin feeling fresh. I usually put a few drops in my hands and pat it on my face which dries very quickly and then use the “REN Bio Retinoid Anti-Aging Concentrate”.
