REN Skincare

Tuesday, 12 November 2013

A month or so ago I picked up three REN skincare samples with InStyle magazine, but didn’t get a chance to try them out til recently, when I went home for reading week and needed some travel-sized products. I regularly read good things about REN so I was very excited to use this set!


REN Skincare Samples

Evercalm Gentle Cleansing Milk

I loved this. It’s a cream in the tube but once it’s mixed with water it turns into a milk so a little goes a long way. My skin felt clean and soft after use.


Vita Mineral Active 7 Eye Gel

Again, a little goes a long way with this – there’s a lot more in that tiny tube than you’d think. The skin round my eyes feels taught, but it didn't make much of a difference to make dark circles. I'm starting to think that they're a lost cause! 


Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream

Very gentle and it has a lovely texture but it wasn’t actually moisturising enough for me. The weather turning colder has made my skin feel tighter (I’ve switched to the rich version of my regular moisturiser) so perhaps the results would be different if I tried it in summer?

Overall my reactions were mixed; I think I'd buy the cleansing milk and the eye cream but I'd have to try the moisturiser again before making up my mind.

    1. Yeah their products do cost more than I usually pay for skincare! That's why I like to have the samples, so I can try them without spending too much :) xx

  4. I love this set! At night I prefer to use a thicker moisturiser but I thought this one was perfect for the day time...I love it so much I think I might buy it which is a big deal for me because I'm so tight with my money when it comes to skincare haha xxx
