As another reviewer has said here, this is an alright product but it just doesn't really do anything for my skin. I haven't noticed after use that it looks any brighter or that there's any noticeable difference to the tone of my skin. I don't really have any fine lines, but I'm guessing if I did it probably wouldn't do much for those either.
Also the scent of this is really overpowering. It's very citrusy, but not in a good way. The packaging states it has extract of passion fruit, grape, pineapple and lemon so I was expecting something quite fresh, but this actually smells quite musty and unpleasant.
I'm sure there are people out there who have found this to be really beneficial for their skin, but for me personally once this has run out I won't be re-purchasing. For me, it's just not worth the very expensive 30.00GBP.
When I pump the mask out, they appear to be liquidity tiny beans. Although this texture is quite rare, I can feel and smell the concentrated ingredients. It feels very natural and fresh. My face feels refreshed and energized.
I enjoy this mask a lot!
I truly loved this product when I first got them.
It worked wonders for my red, acne prone skin.
I looked instantly brighter, my skin felt lighter, and just amazing.
however. I don't know what happened, but I started to not see any difference after reaching the half point of this product.
I started not seeing that brightening effect from getting rid of the dead cell, and the wiping off system (as said in the instruction) just made me super red and irritated.
Even though this stuff cost a fortune in Canada, I was willing to invest in them (because it prevented me from breaking out too), but now I'm looking for a new chemical peel exfoliator.
so much for an expensive product.
I like this mask. It makes my skin feel spa-smooth. It seemed gentle enough for me, but my skin isn't sensitive to begin with. I wouldn't repurchase due to the cost.
This is an alright product. It may be due to the fact that I use potent exfoliators (Exfolikate, BR P50, Alpha H Liquid Gold, Dr. Sebagh Exfoliating Mask), but this just doesn't really do it for me. My skin doesn't look or feel much different after I use it, and I think it's a little bit overhyped. I think this is a a great product for people who need more gentle exfoliation; but I can't justify spending $55 for an ounce of product if it doesn't WOW me and I feel like I can't live without it. I won't miss this when I use it up.
Also, note on the packaging: while I love the idea of it being very hygenic, I am worried that the pump is going to clog up and I won't have an easy way to access the remaining product.
Personally, I prefer the Dr. Sebagh Deep Exfoliating Mask, which I have purchased and would repurchase as the more aggressive version of this mask. My skin feels really refined after using that, so between the two, that is the clear winner for me.
I love this product & the Ren line overall. It is a gentle but powerful exfoliator and I love that it's so natural. I used to use Dr Brandt's Microderabrasion In A Jar but this is so much more gentle than that scrub. It also exfoliates much more evenly than I could myself with that product.
How I use this: Cleanse my skin thoroughly then apply ~1 teaspoon over my face and leave it on for as long as possible (i.e. at least 3 hours to sometimes overnight for 7-8 hours). I use this once a week.
Results: My skin looks incredibly bright and clear. It is SUPER soft and smooth- my skin just drinks up my skincare products afterwards. I wouldn't recommend using this more than once a week because even though it is gentle, it is still a strong exfoliating product.
New brand for me, i recieved a sample and have been using it for a month now. I love it!, my skin looks radiant after use, and it has cleared a lot!
Wonderful exfoliator. Reinvigorates skin upon first application: dull skin brightened, pores deep-cleansed, tonal uniformity restored. Powerful yet non-abrasive. A real find.
I was very hesitant to buy this since it's $66AUD (or close to it). I got a generous sample from Mecca and managed to use this twice. The tingling sensation is minimal, then again I have used AHA's before and on a daily basis. It smells, looks but does NOT taste like marmalade. I like that it does not dry, it makes it a bit more comfortable to wear. The effects are good, they're not amazing. My skin looks and feels radiant, fresh, smooth and clear. I love to use this a few hours before I go out for dinner or a night out with my partner. I will definitely repurchase this.
makes me break out in an angry whiteheads! i get the brightening effect, however it lasts for a day MAX, and the sore pimples that are left for the week are not worth it. overpriced, too! have tried a lot from the REN line now as i won quite a few products. all seem disappointing :( more hype over results, as per
