REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask

Thursday, 26 September 2013

Now, I'm sure we would all like skin which is a little more radiant and I for one am no exception. I've always suffered with skin that is a little on the lacklustre side, to say the least. So when REN came along with this little gem, I knew I needed to give it a try. The Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask* certainly packs a punch! It's full of bio extracts - fruit acids and various acids, to be exact - which act as chemical exfoliants to slough away dead skin cells and leave skin feeling renewed and more radiant. It also claims to even out skin tone - what more could you want?

The mask itself has been likened to the consistency of jam, and I can't argue with that. It's sticky, translucent orange and does smell slightly sweet. The important thing here is not the mask's resemblance to jam, however, but its ability to live up to its ambitious claims. Does it ramp up my skin's radiance? In a word, yes. I can feel a slight tingle when I apply this to my skin, which I personally really like. For a skincare product, it's unlikely to see instant results but with this mask, I do notice that my skin looks perked up and more even immediately after using the mask. I've been using this for the past few months every week or two, and I can definitely say that my skin is more even and if I ever need a little glow boost before a special event, this is the mask that I crack out for the occasion.

I find myself using at least 1-2 pumps to cover my entire face, so I can see myself running out sooner than I'd like. But it's definitely worth the investment! At £30 for 50ml, it isn't the cheapest of products out there but as I always say, skincare should be an investment and that's something that I'll always stick by. For reference, my skin is combination/oily, prone to breakouts with sensitivity around the nose and cheeks. REN do warn that customers with sensitive skin should approach this product with caution, however it didn't flare up my sensitive areas at all.

If you're after a face mask which actually delivers on its promises, this is the one for you. Have you tried any other REN products that you'd recommend? What's your go-to product for ramping up the radiance?
