REN Flash Rinse – From lacklustre to luminous in 60 seconds

The new REN Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial will transform your skin from dull and fatigued to radiant and smooth in 60 seconds flat. This revitalising gel based treatment contains the following ingredients to leave your skin looking and feeling smooth, toned and firm: Boswellic acid – To relax muscles and fight facial fatigue & to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Magnesium – To energise and boost radiance. Vitamin C – To stimulate collagen synthesis, aid skin elasticity and firmness, reduce oxidative and UV damage, even out skin tone & provide instant radiance to the skin. Why Vitamin C? It instantly brightens and evens skin tone and has a firming, toning and lifting effect on the skin. As Vitamin C is collagen boosting, it also aids skin elasticity and firmness in the long run. It also aids in repairing UV damage. The product itself is a pale green gel that feels like a silicon-based primer and gentle exfoliator combined. The gel is then massaged into dry, cleansed skin. Once done, you wet your fingers and massage again. The water activates the potent dose of Vitamin C! When the water mixes with the gel, the ‘grainy bits’ disappear on contact and it feels like a smooth gel that you are massaging all over your skin. Then you leave it on for 1 minute before rinsing or removing with a face cloth. I have used it 3 times since I received it and the results are amazing. My skin instantly feels so soft and smooth and it glows. My skin is a little red afterwards, but it is...

Radiant skin thanks to REN Skincare

I am seriously crushing on this brand right now. I have only recently started using their products, but have been lusting after REN for years. Also see my previous reviews HERE and HERE. The number 1 product that I have been wanting to try is the GLYCOLACTIC RADIANCE RENEWAL MASK. Off the bat I knew I was going to be impressed as so many bloggers give this mask rave reviews. A generous amount of the gel-like mask is applied onto clean skin and left to do its magic for 10 minutes. After those 10 minutes my skin looks radiant and bright and feels silky smooth. I love using it when my skin needs a little extra boost. It also works beautifully after a deep cleansing mask. R490. RESURFACING AHA CONCENTRATE When I see AHA I always get excited. Love me some acids, ha-ha. I apply this product at night after I’ve cleansed, before applying my serums and moisturiser. I have been using it for a couple of weeks and I think it’s worth every cent. My skin is left smooth and radiant and I wake up looking fresh. My skin looks brighter and more even since I’ve started using it. Great stuff REN. R480 MICRO POLISH CLEANSER I prefer exfoliators that come in liquid or mask form as my skin can be very sensitive to abrasive scrubs. Luckily this one has not irritated my skin at all. I use it once a week and usually follow with a deep cleansing mask. As far as scrubs go, I really like this one. R320 xoxo *Disclaimer: These products were sent to...

Perfectly cleansed skin with REN

REN Skincare has two fabulous cleansers that I am really enjoying right now. I am still getting to know this brand, but I am starting to get what all the hype is about. You can also have a look at my review of a couple of gorgeous Morocco Rose Otto body products. The Rosa Centifolia 3-in-1 Cleansing Water is a cleanser, make-up remover and toner in one and is suitable for even the most sensitive skins as it is alcohol, soap and detergent free. The Rosa Centifolia and Rosa Damascena Petals tones and tightens pores, decongests, protects facial vessels and it will leave your skin feeling fresh and soothed. It is pretty much what you would expect from a quality micellar solution – it looks and feels like water, but cleanses your skin and removes make-up. But this one seems to pack bit more punch somehow. Usually I need to use 2 to 3 cotton pads soaked in micellar solution before I feel that all traces of make-up are gone, but with this one I only need one and all make-up is removed from my face (eyes need one more). I’m impressed.  This product is great as a first cleanse in the evening or used for a morning cleanse. RRP R250 for 200ml. The Rosa Centifolia Express Make-up Remover is a ’gentle cleansing milk that quickly and effortlessly removes make-up including waterproof mascara from the face and delicate eye area’… ‘by applying it with a cotton pad and sweeping over closed eyes’. This is not quite how I would describe it or how I use the product. First of all,...

REN Moroccan Rose Otto – the ultimate body indulgence

The beautiful packaging, the heavenly rose scent and the quality of this beautiful range is simply flawless. It truly is the ultimate treat. The range is formulated with Moroccan Rose Otto Oil which is one of the world’s most expensive and revered essential oils. REN sent me 3 products from this exquisite range and I immediately fell in love.   Moroccan Rose Otto Body Wash – R250 for 200ml The body wash smells lovely, foams beautifully and leaves my skin feeling cleansed, yet soft and smooth. A little goes along way and the pump bottle is just perfect. Moroccan Rose Otto Body Lotion – R380 for 200ml This lotion easily absorbs and leaves my skin feeling supple, soft and cared for. The scent lingers on the skin without being overpowering. True bliss. Moroccan Rose Otto Ultra-Moisture Body Oil – R525 for 100ml Oh my. This body oil is the ultimate in luxury. The scent and the beautiful glass bottle alone is enough to make you want more. It is very moisturising without feeling heavy. It absorbs quickly and leaves my skin with a beautiful radiant glow. And it works so well with my super sensitive and dry skin. The body oil is not just a treat, but also a ‘treatment’ as it locks in moisture, restores elasticity and combats the signs of premature ageing. These products are truly a spoil and would make perfect gift for yourself or a loved one. Have a look at the REN SA website for more info or follow them on Twitter or Facebook. I have never tried anything by this brand before, and...
