REN is a great value for money brand, their products far outperform others within the same price bracket and sometimes even products that are double or triple the price. Today I thought I’d talk to you about two that give great, noticeable brightening results with minimal effort.
Their Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask is a well known blogger favourite and with good reason. A generous layer slathered on and left for 10 minutes leaves skin feeling smoother in texture, soft and plumped up. It’s a great quick fixer for a bad skin day or if you need a bit more of a glow pre-party. I say that like I’m out partying all the time, when in reality I mostly reach for it when I’ve been up in the night with the little one and I’m seeing the effects on my skin! The combination of fruit acids, lactic acid and glycolic acid means it works on different depths of the skin, giving great short and long term results. It’s particularly good for helping with dark spots/pigmentation over time.
Wake Wonderful Night-Time Facial is even easier to use, you apply a couple of pumps after cleansing and either leave it there or follow with a bit of facial oil or moisturiser if your skin is on the drier side. No need to rinse off, it stays on your skin all night working it’s magic. It also contains glycolic and lactic acid to exfoliate combined with shea butter and a cocktail of skin nourishing oils to comfort the skin.
Both products are great for everyone except those with very sensitive skin, due to the glycolic acid. The driest skins through to oily, breakout prone skin will benefit from them. The Wake Wonderful Night-Time Facial is also a great option if you’ve been wanting to try Sunday Riley Good Genes but it’s out of your budget. (You can see my full review of that here).
