Ren Clean SkincareEvercalm Barrier Support Elixir, £44.00
The Calming Face Oil
We’ve already mentioned that the Evercalm range is very good for sensitive skin specifically, but the latest offering is a worthy investment for anyone who wants to nourish skin and strengthen the barrier. Enriched with omega 3 and 6 fatty acids to soothe and hydrate, alongside camellia seed and meadowfoam seed oils, this oil calms and nourishes skin. It’s the perfect night time treat for skin that feels dry and delicate.
Ren Clean SkincareBio Retinoid Youth Serum, £62.00
The Hardworking Serum
REN promises that its newest serum is its ‘most advanced’ to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The brand has harvested an ingredient its dub the retinol alternative, bidens pilosa, which tackles fine lines and wrinkles. This ingredient sits alongside ceramides to cushion and fortify the skin barrier, and a healthy dose of niacinamide to even skin tone. The texture is lightweight and easily absorbed, so if it’s diminishing signs of ageing that you’re looking for, here’s a good place to start.
Ren Clean SkincareEvercalm™ Redness Relief Serum, £45.00
The Skin Soother
Whilst this was designed for sensitive, redness-prone skin, we’d argue that all skin types need an Evercalm Redness Relief Serum stashed away. This milky serum mollifies delicate complexions and takes the flush out of any red, reactive areas. Thoughtful ingredients like white mushroom extract and hyaluronic acid also act as anti-inflammatories and hydrate the skin. It’s the perfect companion after a facial peel, or if you’ve been a bit overzealous with your active ingredients (we’ve been there).
Ren Clean SkincareAtlantic Kelp & Magnesium Salt Anti-Fatigue Exfoliating Body Scrub, £34.00
The Body Buffer
Is there anything more satisfying than a grainy body scrub visibly sloughing away dead skin? If you think not, look no further. Not only will the Atlantic Kelp & Magnesium Salt Anti-Fatigue Exfoliating Body Scrub make a noticeable difference topically but massaging the magnesium salt formula into muscles also aids relaxation. The scent is worth an honourable mention, too: a lively and bracing essential oil blend that gives a gentle awakening to the senses. Perfect to perk up your morning shower.
Ren Clean SkincareSummer Limited Edition Daily AHA Tonic, £28.00
The Brightening Toner
This chemical exfoliator is a true workhorse. It cleverly balances both AHAs (gentle lactic acid) and BHAs (salicin, a milder alternative to salicylic acid) to decongest skin, gently exfoliate and brighten. Eagle-eyed REN fans will have noticed that this is a second iteration of the iconic Ready, Steady, Glow toner. The difference between this and the original? Not just the cheery reimagined packaging, but the cucumber extracts inside, which boast antioxidant properties. It feels (and smells) crisp and refreshing; no skincare product has made us yearn for summer more.
Ren Clean SkincareClean Screen Mineral SPF30, £33.00
The Lightweight SPF
You know you should be using SPF every day, but you might have your reservations. Sticky, heavy, and uncomfortable facial SPFs are truly a thing of the past, and REN Clean Screen Mineral SPF 30 demonstrates this in the very best way. It has the texture of a lightweight lotion rather than a rich cream, so it absorbs nicely into the skin, leaving no white cast. While the brand describes it as a ‘mattifying’ finish, we’re keen to emphasise that it doesn’t appear flat or drying on the skin. It blends to be imperceptible, which is everything we want from a facial SPF.
Ren Clean SkincareClearCalm 3 Clarifying Clay Cleanser, £25.00
The Balancing Cleanser
Oily, congested, sweaty skin? REN Clearcalm 3 Clarifying Clay Cleanser is for you. It has aa gentle nature, and a rich, creamy texture. The formula includes chamomile flower to soothe, and a whole host of oil and fruit extracts (including coconut and lavender) to keep skin happy and balanced. Decant some into a smaller bottle and pack into your gym bag – it makes for a great post-workout cleanse.
