Ren Skincare is a staple in our beauty collection, so here we share the standout products from the brand that you need to try.

Performance, purity and pleasure are the skin care philosophy of REN and there’s a huge selection of modern, sophisticated, effective and pleasing-to-use products that are completely free from synthetic fragrance, artificial colour, Petro-chemicals, silicones, sulphates, parabens and animal ingredients.

From dryness to blemishes, anti-ageing to oily skin and sensitive to hormonal, REN has got you covered with a range of skincare products that have been specially formulated to soothe, treat and improve. It’s hard not give these products rave reviews because REN skincare works so well.

The REN skin care product line up includes a variety of products, including, facial cleansers, toners, masks, moisturisers and more. Below we’ve picked out the standout products we love from the brand.

REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal MaskREN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask

A real standout of the brand is the REN Glycolatic Radiance Renewal Mask, which contains glycolic acid to help leave your skin looking more radiant and smoother too.

The mask utilises the acid as well as several other natural Fruit Acid actives, Omega Oils and Papain from Mexican Papaya, to exfoliate the skin in a gentle way to leave it glowing.

The mask is a dream to use, with a gorgeous fresh scent, and spreads evenly and easily over the skin. Leave it on for up to 10 minutes and wash away with a flannel. Skin feels instantly smoother and looks more refined.

REN Clarifying Clay Facial CleanserREN Clarifying Clay Facial Cleanser

Suffer with breakouts and blemishes? The REN Clarifying Clay Facial Cleanser is the perfect solution. The purifying antibacterial cleanser is ideal to be used as a second cleanse, admittedly it doesn’t remove makeup particularly well.

But the French Kaolin Clay, which absorbs excess sebum, Zinc Gluconate, which reduces sebum production, Salicilin, for mild exfoliation, and anti-bacterial and anti-microbial actives, which purify the skin, all work together to ensure that skin is left feeling purified.

The addition of chamomile, lavender and sage all work to reduce and calm inflammation, as well as being antibacterial.

All of these ingredients combined together ensure that spots and breakouts are kept to a minimum and skin generally looks healthier and clearer with use.

REN Keep Young And Beautiful Instant Firming Beauty ShotREN Keep Young and Beautiful Instant Firming Beauty Shot

The Instant Firming Beauty Shot is a gel-like serum that is easily worked into the skin, making it look smoother and tighter.

The formula is made with Hyaluronans this works in to ways, when you first apply it it'll help to smoothe and plump the skin, and it gets to work over time to boost elastin synthesis which helps to firm the skin.

You'll notice a difference straight away, and then over time you'll see a big difference to the overall look of your skin too.

This rose-infused cleansing balm melts into the skin, and transforms into a rich milk when water is added. Simply rinse away and skin is left feeling supple, clean and calm.
