Ren – tried and tested

Here at Bath & Unwind HQ, we were really excited about the launch of Ren on our website. And the minute a selection of products came into our office we were all dying to try everything out! So – without further ado – here is what we thought of the products we tried.

Ren Microbead Purifying Facial PolishJojoba Microbead Purifying Facial Polish

“This is a really gentle exfoliator, and although it feels very thorough in removing makeup and dirt at the end of the day, it is very gentle, as the beads (which do not scratch at all) are suspended in a cream. The result is perfectly cleansed skin without any of the dryness or soreness you can sometimes get. Also, it smells great!”

No. 1 Purity Cleansing BalmOmega 3 Night Repair Serum

The Omega 3 Night Repair Serum is quite thick and oily which really suits my skin as I am not prone to oily breakouts at all. I use this overnight – and it also absorbs very quickly.

I also love the Purity Cleansing Balm, as balms really suit my skin type and work well with the hot cloth cleansing method I am addicted to. I am impressed with how big the tube is – it will last for ages, which is good because I am naughty and I never use it sparingly! It leaves my skin feeling really clean and not tight at all.”

Rosa Centifolia Cleansing Gel

“This rose scented facial cleansing gel for normal skin is definitely in the running for my favourite daily facial cleanser – I was very surprised by and pleased with the results. One pump of the clear gel is more than enough, and when mixed with water it creates a light lather. The rose scent is lovely and light, and most importantly, not overly perfumed. Maybe the best outcome for me was that this face wash did a great job removing all my makeup and left my skin feeling clean, but not tight at all. I will definitely keep using this, and solidly recommend it.”

Ren Guerande Salt Exfoliating Body BalmGureande Salt Exfoliating Body Balm

I absolutely loved this. I have always been nervous about using exfoliating products or scrubs because my skin is so delicate but this was different. I loved the smell instantly. It smells strongly of mint so is really fresh (ideal for the morning). It’s quite strange and weird to put on before getting into the shower as you’re putting it straight onto dry skin. Once it washed off though, it melted straight away and left my skin silky smooth. I didn’t even have to use another showergel or moisturiser! I would recommend this for someone who likes firming products as it would be great for bums and tums! And also for people with sensitive skin who are afraid to use rough scrubs.”

Hydra-Calm Cleansing Milk & Hydra-Calm Global Protection Day Cream

“I love this cleanser. Usually my face goes a bit pink and warm when I use a new cleanser but this one didn’t have that effect at all. It leaves my skin feeling clean as well as hydrated and has made my skin clearer. I found the day cream leaves my skin hydrated and absorbs well, however I think I will use it as a night cream instead of a day cream.”

Ren Moroccan Oil Rose Otto Bath OilMoroccan Rose Otto Body Wash & Moroccan Rose Otto Bath Oil

“The Moroccan Rose Otto Body Wash is delicately fragrant (great if you hate overpowering scents) and not drying at all thanks to the lack of astringent foaming agents. The complementary bath oil smells lovely and disperses easily in bath water, leaving no oily residue. I also rubbed it into my damp skin after the bath to help the scent last longer as again; it’s quite a delicate fragrance, and personally, I like quite a strong floral scent. Both left my skin feeling hydrated and calm.” 

Hazel – Buyer

Neroli & Grapefruit Body Cream

“Hand-on-heart, this is one of the best body creams that I’ve ever tried. It’s a weirdly wonderful hybrid of cream, lotion and mousse. If you find that normal body butters sit greasily on your skin, and yet lotions don’t deel hydrating enough, then this is the one for you. It glides on like a cream, sinks in like a lotion and hydrates like a butter. Perfection. Oh, and it smells of Parma Violets (or Purple Rain cocktails if you’re that way inclined!).”
