- Trying REN Skincare for the First Time...
The title of this post may come as a bit of a shock to you but yep, I'm yet to give REN skincare a whirl. It's a brand I see a lot of rave reviews about on the blogosphere and features on Instagram and in magazines; heck, they're even a regular in the circulation of magazine freebies! But somehow it seems to have escaped my skincare collection. That is, until I saw this mini trio* peeping back at me amongst the goodies after the whirlwind evening that was Cosmopolitan #FashFest back in September. This cute pouch of travel-size products belongs to the REN Vita Mineral range, which focuses on boosting hydration and increasing replenishment - perfect for my dry, currently dull complexion. Contained in it were: • Daily Supplement Moisturising Cream • Active 7 Eye Gel • Lip Balm When first trying the kit, I instantly noticed the light, refreshing scent - just what skincare should smell like if you ask me. I actually looked forward to applying these products each morning and evening due to their fragrance alone. That wasn't all that impressed me, though, as in my opinion all 3 are faultless. The moisturising cream is the most perfect texture which absorbs at a fast rate, providing a wonderfully smooth base for makeup. The clear eye gel immediately felt revitalising and fresh upon application, and the lip balm has been my holy grail choice during these colder months. It's quite a thick balm, but feels luxurious and adds a subtle shine to the lips. I really do think this is the most perfect travel-size trio, and it's definitely inspired me to check out the fill-size versions and more of their products! Have you tried REN skincare before?
