Ren Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask Review

I had my second exam today, which could have gone better, but oh well! Two done one to go, and first year is over, eeeek! I thought today I would share a mask that has been doing my skin wonders during the stressful deadlines/exam period!

The Ren Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask*is a cult beauty product in the blogging world, and everyone’s rave reviews has meant this product has been firmly on my product wishlist for months. When I was offered the opportunity to try this out, I practically leaped out of my chair and said yes please!

The packaging of this product is very clean, fresh, simple and light. I love the cap that goes over the nozzle, keeping the mask airtight and fresh! The size of the pump is perfect for distributing a perfect amount of product and minimising waste. The mask also comes with a cloth, perfect for gently wiping off the mask.

REN’s Glycolactic mask is a bio active peel mask designed to remove dead skin cells and renew the complexion, reduce the appearance of lines and improve skin tone.  Made with 5-6.5% Gloycolic Acid, it is both gentle and effective at exfoliating away dirt, actively dissolving the bonds that hold dead skin build-up to reveal a healthy glow.  It contains natural fruit acids from passion fruit, lemon, grape and pineapple and Papain from papaya to exfoliate the outer layer of skin, encouraging cell turnover and smoothing fine lines. Perfect for combatting congestion, blackheads and blemishes.  

It is suggested to apply a generous amount to clean skin. The product is thick and has a slight jam like consistency (in a good way) and the scent definitely reminds me of marmalade (again, in a good way!). Then leave the mask on for 10 minutes, dampen the cloth with warm water and use to gently wipe the mask off.  (it is okay to experience some tingling during application).

This has been a perfect mask for exam/deadline season, and I’ve really enjoyed using this twice a week and I have definitely noticed amazing brightening effects and really feel like it has renewed my stressed out skin. To be quite honest I didn’t think I would see the immediate effects that everyone raves about with this mask, but I really did! After one use, I immediately had softer, brighter and fresher looking skin! I can see how this mask is a lot of people’s holy grail mask.

I’ve really loved being able to pamper myself with this gorgeous mask, and I really want to try out a lot of other REN products now!

This mask is available on Cult Beauty for £30
