REN Clean Skincare - Hero Products

One of my absolute must-have bathroom skincare brands is REN, now known as REN Clean Skincare.  Over the past year, REN has been on quite the journey with their efforts to become more sustainable and throughout the whole of 2019, I have been lucky enough to share some of that journey with them.

Today I am sharing three hero products from the REN skincare range and each one of them is completely different from the other and yet all three are just fabulous.

The first product is one I loved from the very first use and it is the Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Tonic. I first reviewed this product here, but the reason I wanted to include it within this post is because it is suitable for the most sensitive of skin.

Described by REN as being a toner that provides a daily dose of clean bio-active extracts to help your skin get glowing, it is formulated with the pH of 3.5; the optimum pH at which your skin naturally exfoliates. Within Ready Steady Glow, REN use and harness the power of three sustainable, natural bio-actives - Lactic Acid, Salicin and Azelaic Acid Precursor and each one of these ingredients works together to dissolve dead and dey skin, cleanse your pores, help balance the skin's natural sebum levels and helps to boost radiance, hydration and elasticity.

I have been using Ready Steady Glow for some time now and the very first time I used it, there was a slight tingle on my skin, but what it didn't do was turn red. After using my skin has never been left feeling dry and nor has it caused any irritation.  Priced at £25 for a 250ml bottle, if you have been wanting to try an exfoliating acid, then this is a great place to start.

The second product within my trio is one you might have seen featured quite a lot on my Instagram stories and that is the REN Evercalm Overnight Recovery Balm. The Evercalm collection is described as being soothing care for sensitive and sensitised skin.

The Evercalm™ range is packed with soothing, calming and anti-irritant bioactives and it is formulated to reduce redness and restore skin’s protective barrier against environmental stress.  Within the range, you will find not only find cleansers, moisturisers, masks and serums, but also the Overnight Recovery Balm, which is a firm favourite of mine.

This Balm is perfect for anyone who feels their skin is in need of some TLC if its dry, irritated and is in need of some calming.  This balm is really rich and is said to feed your skin with lipids from Olive, Almond, Borage and Linseed oils, all of which have been activated so they are easily absorbed into the skin, in doing so, they work to intensely nourish and moisturise your skin whilst you sleep. Within this balm, you will also find both Jojoba and sunflower oil which supports the skin's natural lipid balance which in turn helps to strengthen the skin protective barrier. Then we have an ingredient called Beta-glucan which soothes and alleviates signs of irritation from dryness.

I use this balm every evening currently, always when I was freshly cleansed my face and usually after applying a serum to my skin.  Once the serum has absorbed, I will then add this balm.  Once on the skin, it absorbs without being greasy and it leaves my skin feeling incredibly soothed and nourished.  It is worth noting that this balm can also be used on your lips, knees and elbows too for soothing dryness.  Priced at £40, this is one product that should always be on your bedside table.

The final product within this trio is one for those who, like me, love spending time in the bath for some well-deserved R&R and it is the REN Moroccan Rose Otto Bath Oil.

Made with one of the worlds most expensive oils, this bath oil is not only an absolute luxury it is just the tonic after a really stressful, tense working week. Moroccan Rose Otto oil is best known for its anti-bacterial, hydrating and anti-depressant properties. When a few drops of the oil are added into the bath, it disperses pretty much instantly into the water and as it does so, it turns that water into a milky white colour and what I absolutely love is that you can step into the bath and then get out of it again, without the fear of slipping on a slippery oil.  

As the bath continues to run, the steam vapour manages to capture the scent of the Moroccan Rose Oil and fills the air with the most beautiful, natural scent, rather than one which is manufactured.  On the skin, this is very much a moisturising product for your skin, especially if you have dryness.  Priced at £32 for a 110ml bottle, this makes such a wonderful treat.

I would love to know whether or not you are a fan of REN skincare and whether you have a favourite product from the brand, or if you have never tried them, do any of these products stand out?
