Creamy Hot Cloth cleansers are my favourite type of cleansers and an unmissable step in my evening routine; I have tried many - of course some I like less, some I like more - and the new REN Rosa Centifolia Hot Cloth Cleanser* is already part of the latter. It ticks so many boxes!
First of all, it does NOT contain parabens, sulfates, mineral oil, petrolatum, synthetic fragrance, synthetic colours, silicones and other nasty chemicals - in line with the brand ethos.
I found many cleansers to be way too thick, like a paste, but the REN one is very creamy and light, easy to spread and suitable to use on eyes too; it's a pleasure to massage onto the face and the soothing herbal scent is also relaxing for the mind.
You massage the product onto dry skin to help loosen dead skin cells and make up; then, it's recommended to wet the cloth with warm water and to place it on the face to open up the pores; finally, use the cloth to remove the cleanser and polish the skin.
It doesn't leave any oily residue and, at the same time, my skin feels nourished and not tight at all.
It comes in a handy pump bottle that cleverly allows to see how much product is left and a stay-warm cloth.
I got to say that I'm so glad to see REN adding another great product to their already successful skincare range.
This cleanser is now part of my evening rotation... and it's here to stay!
I first saw a sneak peek of the REN V-Cense Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial on Instagram back in November and I can't tell you how excited I'm to finally try this product.
Sad news is that it's not going to be released until the autumn :( ...but I simply couldn't wait to share it with you guys.
The mask is a green balm with a sweet citrusy marzipan/almond scent.
First, you massage the mask into the skin and then add a bit of water, to activate the powerful Vitamin C exfoliant; it suddenly starts to tingle and you leave it on pose for only 60 seconds.
Once removed, the skin felt smooth and soft to the touch, it looked plumped up and rosy.
In the short term, I'm definitely impressed and I can't wait to get my hands on a full size bottle since it promises to help with UV damage and uneven skin tone too, in the long term.
