Summary
REN is one of my favourite natural brands. I am always delighted to find more in their range of bath and skincare and get very excited indeed. I received a travel sized version of this product and have previously had sample sizes, which both come with a dispensing insert in a squeezable tube, making it easy to deliver the amount you need without wastage, and also great to pop in your bag for travel. The full sized version comes with a classy pipette lid and looks great in the bathroom, having stylish graphics. As the products have different colour bands, it's quite tempting to arrange a variety from this brand in a little group to give that aesthetic pleasure when you look at your products each time you wash your hands. The product itself is an odourless, clear liquid-gel and is described as gel-serum. Very little is needed and it is smoothed easily over the skin. The serum is absorbed very quickly and instantly gives a tightening sensation across the skin, leaving it feeling prepped and non-greasy. The details say that it is suitable for all skin types, however, drier skin types may feel they would need to compensate with the choice of moisturiser to follow for more hydration. I have dry and sensitive skin and appeared to get along with this product although feeling more hydration was needed in my next layer. Unfortunately, after a couple of days of use, I noticed that my eczema prone skin didn't like something, so I would recommend caution with this product. In terms of serums, the price point is mid range and certainly delivers if a tightening product is the kind you seek.

I have been using this for a few days now and I have to say that I am impressed. It's not a product that I would naturally choose, but as I received a sample I thought I would try it out.

I applied the gel in two ways: after moisturising and under my foundation. I found that the results I enjoyed the best were just as a pick me up to cleansed skin without make-up. It felt fresh, added a smoothness to my skin and physically looked tighter and brighter. Under make-up I felt that I was layering up too much product once I had added powder and blusher as well.

I thought this product worked well, but at a price. Not everyone, including me, would rush out and pay the price for 30ml. If only you got a bit more for your money. Then I may be tempted just a little bit more.
