Taking care of my skin is one of the most important things for me. I love good products and especially when they are free from harmfull ingredients. I need to admit that there was a time in my life that I did neglect my skin a little bit. Someone introduced me to the REN Micro Polish Cleaner, I loved the smell of this cleanser from the very first moment. REN skincare is free from petrochemicals, sulfates, parabenes, synthetic fragrance and synthetic colors “skincare as it should be”. I decided to order the Pore Perfecting Kit the other day because there is so much more to discover from this brand. What better way then buying travelsizes to trial.
1. REN MICROPOLISH CLEANSER (€27/150ml)
“A two in one formula that deeply cleanses and gently exfoliates the skin to leave it looking purified, renewed and radiant.”
I love this product, it smells so delicious, the citrus fragrance is very refreshing but not to strong, that is why I love to use this cleanser during the mornings. It wakes me up immediately. It has a lot of similarities with a scrub but it is not harsh at all. I can use this every day if I want to but I always try to variate my cleansers during the week. The texture is like a thick foam filled with microbeads. It doesn’t dry out and it doesn’t scratch. I would definitely repurchase this cleanser since it cleans your skin thoroughly.
2. REN GLYCOLACTIC RADIANCE RENEWAL MASK (€41/50ml)
“A potent bio active peel mask designed to renew the complexion, reduce the appearance of fine lines and dramatically improve skin tone.”
“A detoxifying clay mask designed to reduce the appearance of pore size and leave the skin purified, smooth and toned.”
This mask is worth your money. I leave it on for a good 20 minutes and my skin loves it! I have combination to oily skin and this mask soaks up all the dirt and grease and have I mentioned the ‘clean’ fragrance? Very nice especially if you are not into fragrance. Clay masks are known for drawing out impurities and reducing the poresize but I have to admit that I still have visible pores around my nose. That might be due to the fact that my nose/cheek area is very oily. Maybe I need to use the mask for an extended period of time to really see pore shrinking results. I don’t believe that large pores can dissapear but I do believe that clay is able to clean out your pores and make them appear smaller and more evened out. My skin feels really smooth after using and I like the rubbing off part because it makes the Clarimatte Invisible Pores Detox Mask a two in one product. I start with a mask and end with an exfoliant. If multitasking is your thing this one is a must have. The texture is a typical clay mask one, maybe a little bit thicker. It applies very easy and I consider it very economical because a little bit goes a long way. I have te sample size but there is still enough product left for 3-5 uses. The mask turns out very hard on my skin so having telephone conversations in combination with this mask is not recommended.
