REN Skincare


I've always wanted to delve into the realm of REN Skincare, with many a blogger singing their high praises. I was reading Lucy's blog and saw that she had bought a little sample pack, so I had a little look into things, and saw that they were actually reasonably priced, so proceeded to the checkout with this in my basket.


In the set you get three items, the T-Zone Balancing Day Fluid, T-Zone Control Cleansing Gel and Invisible Pores Detox Mask.

T-Zone Balancing Day Fluid - This is pretty much a mattyfining day lotion, which is a really fine 'fluid' consistency which really tightens up the pores and leaves a gorgeous firm feeling to the face and a perfect base for make-up.

T-Zone Control Cleansing Gel - This is a really fine cleansing gel that I can really feel clean deep down. My only quibble with this product is the smell. Now I'm not too sure what Mayblossom is, and I'm too lazy to google it, but this product has a lavender-esque smell to it, which I really dislike.

Invisible Pore Detox Mask - This is the strangest (in a cool way) mask I have ever used. You put it on, wait for it to dry, then rub it off, with just your hands. It literally looks like your face has dandruff. So strange, but also so cool. I really feel like my face looks a lot tighter, but doesn't feel tighter after use.


Now when you purchase anything from the REN Skincare site, you get two trial size products. I've put my finger next to them to show just how small they are, but it is also a great way to try new products. I've managed to get three uses out of the mask, so you still get a good test.

The one I was most excited to try was the Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask, as again, this is a firm favourite with bloggers. I can honestly see why, I love how good my face looks in the morning after using this product, you can really tell the difference, I am definitely going to be purchasing the full size of this, which at £30 a pop, is saying something. When you put it on, it is like smearing the something equivalent to the middle of Jaffa Cake onto your face.

I haven't really tried the Hydra-Calm Cleansing Gel, I'm waiting for the other cleanser to run out, but I'm sure I'll like it.

Now I'm writing this Monday, and I've just currently hit purchase on £46 (I know, that is just how impressed I am, please don't tell my bank balance, or my mom!) more REN Skincare, so expect another rave soon.

Also, I should mention that on their site, not only do you get two free trial sized products, you also get 10% off of your first order. Their delivery is also not to be faulted. You get numerous email updates and can pick a date suitable for delivery. Mine is due on Wednesday, and it is after 7pm right now.

Have you tired REN Skincare?

Just in case you were wondering I've ordered the Purity Cleansing Balm on Kate's recommendation and the Micro Polish Cleanser. (I will be getting the Glycolactic Mask, but on a different order, as it feels less expensive that way. But it is another trial size!)

- I've only been using these two products a couple of days now, and I love them, go REN skincare!

  1. I tried a couple of free samples from magazines a couple of months ago and fell in love with the brand. The only thing that puts me off is the price, so thanks mentioning the deals! Great post :) x

    1. I know, I always thought they were mega expensive, and although not cheap, they are reasonable :)

  3. I've had REN facials in spa's but I've actually owned any of the products for myself. I hope to change this soon! Once I've used up my current stash (of about a 6 months worth) I'll be placing an order :)

  5. I have been on REN's website so many times now. One of these days I will probably bite the bullet and order some stuff, even tho they will charge me an arm and a leg for international shipping.

    Great blog, btw. Following!

    1. Ah I know, such a shame, aren't there any other sites that stock them that may make it cheaper?

      Thank you :)
