Summer season can cause your skin to change. Even with the very little sun in Ireland the temperature is still warm-ish making the weather that annoying clammy type that is hard to dress for. I have combination skin with my t-zone being oily. I have found it hard to have that fresh face feeling during the summer months. Sometimes I feel as if my makeup is literally melting off my face, which clogs my pores and can cause breakouts. I was delighted to have been sent Ren clean skincare to try out. I have heard such fantastic reviews from Ren products so I was hoping it would live up to the hype.
Ren Glycolactic radiance renewal mask ( It is a mouthful) is a gentle peel that contains a potent blend of bio actvies to renew the complexion, reduce the appearance of fine lines and dramatically improve skin tone. It is also packed with Omega 3 and omega 7 from Artic blackcurrant seed oil that repairs and regenerates the skin. As I am a very impatient person I like that is has an immediate beauty boosting effect. Promising to leave your skin instantly brighter. The natural fruit extract complex of passion fruit, lemon, grape and pineapple combined with with papain smooths the skin’s surface to soften the appearance of fine lines, combat black heads and reduce pore size ( As my sister so kindly informed me a few weeks ago I had enlarged pores, sigh ) I was definitely ready to try out this product
How to use
I have been appling this renewal mask for the past month now once a week. I apply a generous amount onto clean skin and leave my skin soak in all the nutrients for ten blissful minutes. To remove I just use a dampened face cloth that is provided for you, and gently wipe off the mask. I usually feel a slight tingling feeling when its applied but this is a normal reaction. (maybe I am crazy but when I apply a face mask I like the tingly feeling – It makes me feel like it is working! )
I have really enjoyed using this product. If I feel my skin is looking a little dull and needs a boost I will grab this product. As soon as I start applying it, the zesty lemon fragrance feels fresh on my skin. You can purchase REN CLEAN SKINCARE range from pharmacists nationwide including Arnots, Meaghers pharmacy, Foodys pharmacy and Sam McCauleys. It retails at €35.00
