Its no secret, I suffer with acne. I have done for years. I think I have tried every acne fighting product that's out there and here’s what I have learned. High street/drugstore acne face washes are the worst products to put on your skin. You may aswell throw acid on your skin cause they just strip all natural oils in your skin leaving your blemish prone skin looking worse. So with that in mind, I decided it was time to invest in good skincare products. I heard about Ren through various bloggers and I researched this kit before I bought it, It had pretty positive reviews.
I decided to buy the Blemish kit (€18) so I could try the products out and to see if my skin accepted them and to try before I bought full size products. Ren skincare is all natural skincare. Its very good for you and doesn’t contain and harsh chemicals. Which is good not just for acne but for any skin type.
In the box you get 4 decent size samples of what Ren have to offer when it comes to acne prone skin products. They also sell kits for other skin types.
The box contains:
ClearCalm3 Clarifying Clay Cleanser- this is a gentle cleanser that I use in the morning. I really like this product. Its the biggest of the samples. It smells like fresh herbs quite strong but you get used to it after a while. What I like about it is the face it leaves my skin clean without over drying it and leaving it tight. You massage it onto the skin for 1-2 minutes and then rinse off. I loved this product so much I did buy this full size after it ran out. It lasted me just over 2 weeks.
ClearCalm 3 Total Clarity Day Fluid- This was properly the only product I wasn’t that keen on. I just didn’t like the consistency of it. It was quite runny, but when I put it on my face it seemed to absorb so fast that it just felt like I was dragging my skin trying to blend it out everywhere. I read on a blog that the full size version is better consistency but I don’t think I will buy it as It never impressed me.
ClearCalm3 Replenishing Night Serum- I love this product. Its really nice. I apply it once I’ve removed all my makeup and before I hop into bed. Its soaks in nicely into the skin and I like the idea of it doing something to my skin whilst I’m sleeping. I have used this since I bought this kit and still have quite a bit left. You only need the smallest amount and it leaves the skin nice and soft. I can however smell it in bed but I don’t let that put me off. When it runs out I will buy full size.
ClearCalm Clarity Restoring Mask- I love putting a mask on once a week and this mask is really nice. When I am having a bad skin day I throw this on leave it 15 minutes and my skin looks brighter and healthier afterwards. It leaves my skin soft and makes my pores look half the size. I still have quite a bit of this product. So again I will properly buy full size.
Overall Thoughts: I really am glad I took the plunge into more expensive skincare and skincare that is super natural. I can honestly tell you my skin has dramatically changed since using these products. It looks clearer and more healthier. Usually my skin looks red and clustered with blemishes. My blemishes have cleared up majorly. I was really surprised as it started working within a week of using it. I would recommend to anyone who feels they are at their last tether with acne. I thought that there was nothing out there for my skin but I am so happy I have found this brand.
Have you tried Ren Skincare?
