T-minus 15 days until i’m in the Philippine sunshine, until then though my skin needs a dose of major TLC. Me and the winter don’t really get on because oh boy does it make my skin dry and dull. However this winter REN has come to the rescue. Just as a note too all the products from REN below are cruelty free and most vegan too which in itself is a huge plus let alone these products being fantastic.
My Morning Skincare
REN Rosa Centifolica No.1 Purity Cleansing Balm* (£25) – This cleansing balm is perfect to calm the skin and leave it glowing which is exactly what you want before you face a full day. I prefer this one in the morning but if you wanted to use it after a long day this calming balm turns into a silky milk when it touches water, melting away dirt and make-up – even waterproof mascara.
REN Flash Defence Anti-Pollution Mist* (£24 for full size) – I have a handbag friendly version of this however if you want to protect your skin from harmful pollution. This little number helps shield your skin a must for the city, this protective mist not only forms a shield to protect against free radicals and pollution, it helps to strengthen skin’s natural defences and ability to detoxify.
My Evening Skincare
Evercalm Gentle Cleansing Gel* (£19) – My skin in the winter is super sensitive. I use my micellar water to remove my makeup then follow up with this from REN. A gel facial wash developed to leave sensitised skin deep-cleaned and comfortable, without dryness. As I mentioned my skin in winter can get very dry and dull so this is a must for me! Formulated for skin prone to redness, irritation and dryness, this gentle cleanser works to wash away the day’s dirt and make-up while it soothes and calms, reducing inflammation and leaving skin refreshed
Evercalm Overnight Recovery Balm* (£40) – Okay so this one is a little bit more pricy but this little pot is so worth it. It is fairly new to the REN Evercalm range it targets sensitivity, dryness and inflammation all while boosting and protecting your skin. It’s unique balm-to-oil texture replenishes the skin and deeply moisturises. It is so lightweight and not greasy or oily at all as it absorbs into the skin quickly it means your head can hit the pillow right away.
I have been using these for a few weeks and loving the results! I had never used REN skincare before, though has used so much of their body range over the years. I love their brand ethos of helping to get us to live on a clean planted and their 100% recyclable packaging, refillable solutions, bottles with reclaimed ocean plastic and they’re working toward a waste-free future. They’ve teamed up with global activist partner, Surfrider, to tackle cleaning up beaches and oceans worldwide, right now. A brand that is good inside and out what more can you want!
