Since its launch in 2000, Ren has become a cult favourite amongst beauty editors and consumers alike. It’s now available in department stores, pharmacies and spas in over fifty countries around the world, making it a serious player in the skincare category. Not only does the brand provide groundbreaking product formulations, the latest hi-tech actives, rigorous product testing and clinically proven results, but they use only 100% plant and mineral derived actives and all their formulas are free from skin-unfriendly synthetic ingredients. This is not airy fairy skincare – this is a brand that provides results, without relying on ingredients that have the potential to irritate. Although I’ve used a few products over the years, it’s a brand I’ve often passed by in favour of a more well known name; but things are a changing in my bathroom, as I’ve finally discovered the brilliant formulas and incredible aspirations of a home-grown British brand that I know you’ll love as much as me. If you’re a little confused as to where to start with their plethora of products, here are three of my favourites to get you on the right track and ensure you kick off your Ren relationship with a bang.
1. Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial (£32.00)
One of the most innovative products I’ve ever used, this face treatment contains water-activated vitamin C that works to leave skin firm, toned and smoothed. You simply apply to dry skin, wet your hands and massage the formula into your face; the water breaks down the rather odd texture of the treatment, boosting your complexion to leave it feeling fantastic. Working to diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles, the included Vitamin C supports the body’s natural collagen production, improving skin elasticity and evening out skin tone pretty much instantly. It’s a great morning treat on days when you need a little boost, plus it really does take one minute – perfect for busy women who don’t have time to faff around.
2. Instant Firming Beauty Shot (£36.00)
Specially formulated to smooth and tighten, this revolutionary serum encourages elastin production for a fresh-faced feeling that stays all day. The transparent gel-like texture instantly lifts and plumps the skin, leaving me feeling like I’ve had a mini botox treatment without the needles! If your complexion is feeling a little tired, then this is a facial in a bottle – two to three drops, massaged into skin, are all you need to boost skin and leave you feeling like your cheeks have reverted back to those of a twenty year old. I’m obsessed.
3. Wake Wonderful Night-Time Facial (£32.00)
This not-too-rich formula contains a unique complex of active ingredients which deliver a three-phase treatment while you sleep. The revitalising facial works to exfoliate and brighten the skin, Glycogen and Magensium boost skin’s cell activity (for turnover and repair,) while Sodium Lactate raises the skin’s pH to leave it brighter and plumper. Massaged into skin before you drift off to sleep, this simple cream is anything but simple on the inside; it leaves my complexion feeling fabulous and ready to face the day ahead.
