Review! Ren Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask

I'm very into my masks at the moment and when I was offered Ren's Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask to try out, I jumped at the chance.  I'd only heard great things about this and being a newbie to the brand, I thought it'd be a good introduction.

I think that logic has backfired on me because I now want to try more products from Ren.  Dang it for being so brilliant!

Ren's Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask is an exfoliating mask which promises to renew the complexion, dramatically improve skin tone and radiance while reducing the appearance of fine lines.  Them's bold claims eh?

With glycolic, lactic, citric and tartaric acids among the ingredients, these exfoliate your face, but in mask form.  And here I was thinking I'd be a scrub convert for life!  The mask itself has a thick gel consistency, has a sweet citrussy smell and is different to any other mask I've tried out.  

I apply one pump of the product which covers my face evenly and I let it sit for ten minutes.  When I read the packaging and saw that it could tingle my skin, I set the stopwatch on my phone just in case I forgot when I put it on!  Alas, I didn't feel any tingles and was a little disappointed at that.  So after my ten minutes, I used the accompanying muslin cloth and removed the mask, not expecting too much.  I'd wanted tingles!! 

Well, let me tell you, tingles aside, I've never seen such an instant improvement in my skin after one use of a product.  I looked glowy and radiant and any dullness that my skin might have had in the ten minutes before was long gone.  

I use it once a week and look forward to it because I know right after using it, my skin will look amazing!  It's suitable for all skin types except sensitive skin, so I'm happy that Joanne can't steal it on me, but as for mam, I'll have to hide it on her!

You can buy Ren's Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask on Cloud10beauty for €35 or in Arnotts Dublin.  Oh I think this is going to be the start of a beautiful friendship Ren!
