REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask Reveiw

Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask - £30.00*

If you read my blog recently I've been trying lots of skincare products, pretty much everything I've tried so far has been great. We all know all the good products are hyped crazily in the blogging world I also had heard the ingredient Glycolic Acid being mentioned vaguely. One of the brands I came across was REN which seemed much more affordable for certain items than other brands, it was when I placed my first order I was allowed to choose a free sample, that's when me and this beauty met.

What is Glycolic Acid:
Glycolic acid is a natural exfoliant. Freshly exfoliated skin tends to have a healthy glow. Skin looks softer and smoother. Long term use of glycolic acid skin care products has been shown to help diminish fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots. It also helps smooth out uneven facial tone and can even reduce the appearance of surgical scars, acne scars, and other blemishes.

However if it used too often it does have negatives as the acid is really powerful which is why I like to stick to using this mas only once a week sometimes once in two weeks, I only found this information once doing some research but if correctly used you should be fine, also make sure it is suitable for you.

REN describe this mask as:
A potent bio active peel mask designed to renew the complexion, reduce the appearance of fine lines and dramatically improve skin tone.

Awarded Best for Instant Brightening in Martha Stewart Weddings Big-Day Beauty Awards 2012: The Best in Wedding Skin Care.

Removes dead skin cells to renew the complexion. 
Skin looks brighter, healthier, more radiant. 
Helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 
Combats congestion, blackheads and blemishes.

My thoughts:
After just the first time of using this I saw a HUGE difference my skin was glowing! My hubby who wasn't aware of me using anything actually commented 'your face is glowing and your skin looks really fresh' they were his exact words and that's just how I felt. So I decided to put it to the test and use it on hubby (neither of us have any skin problems) and again the results were just as good.

I applied a generous amount as mentioned in the instructions, I then wet a facial sponge under lukewarm water and wiped away as mentioned. In my experience I have never experienced any tingling, instantly after using this mask my skin feels very tight, my pores close up very well, dry skin isn't to be seen anywhere and my face smelt really nice too. I am more than happy with this mask its by far my favourite and as I mentioned if used correctly you shouldn't have any problems (always check instructions and do your own research your skin may be different to mine in many ways). So for me this mask is a winner, it may set you back £30.00 (can be found from some places for £25.00) but it is hugely worth it and will last ages.
