There`s nothing I love more than a good bargain. Since I got a job promotion I`m doing quite well, but I still don`t like spending a lot of money on luxury brands. However, every now and then I treat myself with some expensive skincare products, but only if I spot a good sale or another sensational offer. So, a couple of weeks ago I was browsing through M&S when I saw that if you buy two Ren products you get a free gift bag worth 30 pounds. Ren is one of my favourite brands when it comes to skincare, so I loved the thought of trying new things. Until now I`m a big fan of their hot cleanser, but they included a good selection of products in their gift bag, so I might treat myself this Christmas. Another thing that I loved was the fact that the samples had decent sizes, from 15 to 25 ml (except the night cream, but more on that later). Seriously, I hate it when you get a 5 ml sample and they`re expecting that that tiny thing will convince you to buy their product. Call me old-fashioned, but I like to try something more than once before buying it. Anyways, I`ll stop before this post turns into a big rant and I`ll show you what I got.
Out of all, the Emollient Rescue Cream is the smallest, with only a 3ml sample. However, the formula is quite thick and a little goes a long way, so a small amount will do it. After applying it my skin felt really soft and hydrated, but it wasn`t enough to convince me. I actually liked a bit more the Global Protection Day Cream. As you can see, the sample is decent, so you can see if the product will work for you or not. The formula is extremely lightweight, sink right in and it feels like I`m not having anything on my skin. I used it for two weeks now and my skin feels smoother and more hydrated. I don`t have any major issues when it comes to my face, so this cream might work for now. Another product I got was the cleansing gel. Honestly, I think Ren has some amazing cleansers. For the past months, I used their hot cleanser and I can`t praise it enough. This cleanser it great too, if you want a quick way to remove impurities and makeup. It`s really creamy and easy to use and the rose extract will leave your skin feeling extremely fresh and clean. After going through all these samples, one product I`ll definitely buy is the Revitalising Night Cream. Every morning when I wake up, my skin looks amazing, like I had a good 8 hours sleep (not the case, sadly). No surprise here, the secret to great looking skin is investing into some really good products. And last, but not least, I got their award winning Glycolactic Radiance Renewal mask. This baby will make you feel and look like you spend your day in a posh spa.Lately, I have been working more, so my skin looked quite dull, but after applying this cream I feel like another person. My skin looks more radiant, l had fewer breakouts and it evened my tone.
If you are looking for a high-end brand that will not leave you broke, Ren is your answer. Their products, which are not tested on animals btw, are also free from parabens and other harsh chemicals, so it won`t harm your skin. I think this kit is great, you have a good variety of products from different ranges, so you`ll definitely find one that suits your needs. I still think their hot cleanser is the best, but the creams convinced me to broad my perspectives and try more products.
