Beauty Review: A REN review

Today I am once again sharing my space with my lovely sister-in-law Kirsten Due to an abundance of products accumulating on my desk and a severe lack of time to trial, test, photograph and blog about everything, I occasionally ask Kirsten to give a few products a try and let me know her feedback! She is a very talented make-up artist and model and is passionate about beauty so she knows her stuff!

So without further ado let me hand over to her to give you the low down on a 2 REN products she recently tested. But first a bit about REN…

REN’s product formulations offer the latest hi-tech actives, rigorous product testing and clinically proven results. The brand also only 100% plant and mineral derived actives and is free from synthetic ingredients.

This is a unique 100% natural rose extract complex. A multi-purpose cleansing milk that is very gentle on the eyes and may also be used on the rest of the face to remove makeup.

It has a subtle rose fragrance which I love! The creamy consistency of this product feels very gentle around the sensitive eye area and does not rob the skin of moisture when removing makeup.

I love that this brand contains no parabens, sulphates, mineral oil, petrolatum, synthetic fragrance or colours. It is suitable for all skin types and the bonus is that it removes waterproof mascara as well!

This is definitely a new favourite of mine.



I love the simplicity of this product and the fact that it has 3 uses in one. This cleansing water can be used as a cleanser, an eye makeup remover and a toner.

I love using this product when I am too lazy to do all three steps, generally on a day when I am wearing little to no makeup. All skin types, especially those with highly sensitive or reactive skin, can benefit from this product and it is alcohol, soap and detergent free.

After using this product the skin feels clean, toned and not tight. But be careful not to get the cleansing water in your eyes when cleansing around the eye area as it can sting a little!
