FACE MASK REVIEW. REN GLYCOLACTIC RADIANCE RENEWAL MASK.



First of all we would like to thank Ren for sending us one of our most-wanted products this year! Ren's Glycolatic Radiance Renewal Mask c/o has been on our hit list for so long, with both of us umm'ing and ahhh'ing whether we should indulge! So when Ren very kindly offered us to try their active peel mask we were well, lets say ecstatic!



We had heard about this mask, through our most trusty source, other beauty bloggers! Designed to renew the skins surface along with improving your skin tone, so many bloggers said how much they loved this product. At £30, this is definitely indulgence product but ladies and gents it's worth every penny. With lots of active ingredients to remove dead skin cells, brighten the skin and help unblock congested pores, here is what we thought...

Jess:

I think before saying anything else about this product I have to start with the texture. Ahh it is so bizarre it's almost like spreading honey across your face, it is sticky, tacky and gooey but so much fun! 
NB: One tip when working with this honey like texture is to make sure you slick all your hair off your face before applying - first time I used it my baby hairs were literally glued to my face for 10 minutes :o)

On first appearances the product itself is almost clear but has a tinge of orange to it and have to admit it isn't the best thing I have ever smelt in the world BUT I know it is being washed off in 10 minutes so if it does the trick, a little smell doesn't hurt. 

I first applied a medium to thick layer of the product onto my face and then left for 10 minutes as instructed. It did tingle a little but I did read that this can happen sometimes and not to be alarmed. After 10 minutes were up, I just used a lukewarm flannel to gently wipe of the mask... and OMG!! My skin felt softer than a babies bottom!

The dullness from my winter skin was totally gone, replaced with a lovely glow that lasted a few days. The renewal mask also cleaned off all dry and dead skin and left me with an amazing even and smooth canvas! A big big thumbs up from me! I would definitely be using the Ren Radiance renewal mask once a week to maintain my new and improved glowing skin :o)

 Becki:

So first of all, this mask gave my face instant results! After just one use my skin was glowing. Jess couldn't describe it any better to be honest! Babies bottom and all that! I must say though (getting all negativity out the way first) that the scent is my worst nightmare, I really dislike orangey tropical scents! So a mask full of Lemon, Pineapple and Passion fruit extracts certainly contributed to its scent. But like Jess said, I can handle the scent if it makes my skin looks this blooming fantastic!

I suffer with blocked pores and a dull complexion as usually I am pale and blotchy so I do like to use a radiance peel once a week. I have been using Elemental Herbolgy's Facial Glow, which on comparison, I think is very similar to this product. The only major difference is texture of the masks. Oh and the packaging. I do love Ren's clean, no fuss packaging, which for this mask, it is contained in a very handy pump. So your mask keeps fresh and there is no mess in sight. (I'm sure I'm not alone in saying once my hands are covered in a mask, then to have to attempt to put the lid back on is always a nightmare!)

I really love he ingredients in this mask. Ever since starting Life Looks Perfect, I have become obsessed with what I am actually putting onto my face! The active ingredients in this mask is incredible. It's bursting with fruit acids and vitamins that are important in keeping your skin healthy and prepped for the day ahead. Acid is used to help exfoliate the skin and prep it before adding your toner, serum and moisturiser. Citric, Lactic, Glycolic and Tartaric acid help do this perfectly, whilst also helping cell renewal.


We both think that this mask is incredible! To find a product that both of us can use and both experience instant and noticeable changes to our skin is rare. Although this mask is suitable for most skin types, we are sorry to say its not suitable for sensitive skin. But we can say that usually Becki can react very badly to new products or strong ingredients but she has no problem at all with this renewal mask BUT always test before you buy :)


Hugs & Kisses
Becki & Jess
