REPLACEMENTS. REN HYDRA-CALM FOR REN ROSA CENTIFOLIA.


Two cleansers, one brand. I have to admit I have become a bit of a Ren addict. Last month my beauty shelf was filled up with over half of Ren's product range and I was still indulging and buying more. Much like my post last Tuesday, I wanted to share with you my new cleanser replacement and of course you can see that I kept it within the same family!

Firstly is a whole lot of love for the Ren Hydra-Calm cleanser that I have replaced. There is no doubt that this is a fantastic, gentle, hydrating cleansing milk that kept my skin in great shape over the Winter months. Now re-named Ever calm, the the cleansers formula has stayed the same with ingredients such as rich Omega 3 and essential fatty acids, along with Fennel seed extracts and Arctic Seabuckthorn Berry Oil to reduce inflammation and calm sensitive skin. I tended to use this cleanser in the morning as its a light refreshing wake up call and it always left my skin looking bright and healthy. As this cleansing milk is from Ren's sensitive skin range, you can bet it protects your skin against the harsh city environment whilst feeling calm and soothed all day long.

Before I move on to the next Ren products, I must say without delving too much into the science of both cleansers that they do seem fairly similar on texture and how they leave your skin feeling after use. I think it might be to do with the process of removing the cleanser, as with all my balm or milk based cleansers, I like to remove them with a hot cloth, whether that be flannel or muslin cloth. This way of removing a cleanser, always makes my skin feel extremely clean and refreshed.

So to my latest Ren replacement, meet Rosa Centifolia Hot Cloth Cleanser c/o. With its very own complimentary 'stay-warm' cloth, it's a creamy, delicate, scented cleanser that contains one of my favourite fragrance notes in beauty Rosa Damascena, which comes from Damask rose that helps to calm, sooth and hydrate the skin. This cleanser although similar in texture to Hydra-calm, helps to purify your skin by removing any traces of dead skin or make up. I have tried this a few times with removing make up before using any other product and it doesn't clear up your skin pretty swiftly. however I would do a double cleanse, just to make sure any impurities are removed. I haven't tried it as of yet with a waterproof mascara but id imagine it would remove it as well. I terms of application, I like to massage it into dry skin and then remove in circular motions with my lukewarm flannel. I then tend to rinse my face with some cooler water just to wash away any left over product, if there is any. 

I think if I had to choose between the two, I would probably stick to Ren's Hydra Calm (Ever Calm) just as I love the product and I feel it does hydrate my skin better that Rosa Centifolia. I think Ren's Sensitive range is a great investment and I would love to try out a few more products in their range.

  1. I absolutely love the sound of these! I've been using the Caudalie Gentle Cleansing Milk but I may have to give the REN one a go after it's all gone.
