Rekindled Love

It ain’t a secret I’ve got a not so secret love affair going on with REN. We started our relationship about… 5-6 years ago – it was their ClearCalm 3 Purifying Mask – and we’ve never left each others side since. To celebrate their 15th anniversary, they’ve repackaged their all-time bestseller, the Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask, in a bigger, prettier bottle (75ml instead of 50ml), retailing for the same price. If that isn’t a bargain…

For those who aren’t familiar with their Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask, it basically is a chemical exfoliator. Chemical in the sense that it contains natural Glycolactic, Lactic, Citric and Tartaric Acids – derived from Pineapple, Passion Fruit, Lemon, Grape – and a Papaya Enzyme. All ingredients that are ace for sloughing away dead skin cells —leaving your skin softer, smoother and radiant. As acids can be rather drying and intense, it contains Omega 3 and 7 to nourish, soothe and calm the skin.

I have definitely noticed my skin feeling (and looking) softer, smoother and more radiant, instantly. When used regularly, it can help fade hyper pigmentation, reduce congestion and blackheads. I tend to use this once or twice a week and leave it on for about 15-20 minutes before I wash it off. The reason why I keep bangin’ on and on about REN products is because the brand is based on simple, yet effective and innovative products, containing pure and active ingredients. Their brand philosophy ‘pleasure, purity and performance’ are words close to my heart, and values I really appreciate in brands. In the years I’ve used their products, I’ve yet to come across one that I didn’t like. And trust me, I’ve tried my fair share…
