I love cleansers and trying out new one and I have been wanting to try some REN products for ages but didn’t know what to get so I just got the REN Gentle Cleansing Gel to try out from Look Fantastic. I didn’t want to go all out and purchase a complete set or anything because I didn’t even know if I would like it or get on with it. I just knew that I see it a lot on instgram and other blogs.
I must say I am so glad that I decided to give it a go because it really is the most gentle thing I have ever used on my skin before. I normally go for cleansing milks or balms so this is a really nice change. I only use this in my evening skincare routine as a second cleanse but it is so calming and lovely to use. My mum even likes this and she has very sensitive skin and is very fussy about what she uses on her face, so that’s saying something!
I love that this is free from a lot of the not so good things such as mineral oils and parabens. It’s probably because of this that is why it makes it such a gentle cleanser and so suitable for people with sensitive skin.
Each time I use this no matter what kind of skin day I’m having, it leaves it feeling so refreshed and moisturised. I never get that tight skin feel after using this, it literally always feels silky smooth and beautiful afterwards and the main reason for this I think is because it’s a gel. With this you rub 1-2 pumps between wet finger tips and then rub into the face. I don’t know if it’s because I’m not used to gel cleansers or what but it’s the best feeling ever!
The packaging of this is really nice and makes it feel like such a luxury product. The pump itself is really lovely and easy to use which keeps it clean which is what always concerns me with products like this – there’s nothing worse than a messy cleaner or moisturiser. It is a bit more expensive than drugstore but not drastically. I think it’s so worth the price too because you need such a tiny amount it will last a good few months that’s for sure. The scent of this is also so good but not strong at all which I really like, especially that I use other products after this too.
I am definitely enjoying using this and know that I will be purchasing some of this lines other products soon too. I have my eye on the Clarifying Clay Cleanser so really can’t wait to try that and I’m super interested to try their moisturisers based on how well I get on with this gel.
Have you tried any REN products? What’s your experience using them?
