REN are one of my favourite skincare brands, I’ve never once had a product that has irritated or made my skin sore, every single product has worked and worked well for me since I’ve started using it. The Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask is another one to add to the list.
It’s a mask that is quick to use, and leaves your face looking awake and refreshed, so it’s maybe more suited to a morning boost (if you have the time) but it’s certainly not a bad product to use in the evening either.
It’s designed to renew the complexion and reduce the appearance of fine lines (as we know I’m all about that at the moment!) and improve skin tone by removing dead skin cells, helping to clear congestion, blackheads and spots.
It’s quite a sticky texture with a strange smell, not unpleasant but not one of the nicest products I own. After applying a generous amount to clean, dry skin, you leave it for 10 minutes to do it’s thing, then wipe away with a damp flannel or cloth (there is a muslin cloth included the box) You might experience a slight tingle (it’s an exfoliating mask containing acids) but nothing too extreme, if you do find that it’s doing more than tingle then remove it and rinse your face with fresh water, but don’t be alarmed by the tingle! My skin is quite sensitive and I haven’t had any reaction from it, but we’re all different.
It’s recommended to use it weekly, so the 50ml pump should last a good while.
