This the only skin care product I have ever used that I could never imagine living without. It's truly a miracle worker for me - and I don't believe in miracles when it comes to skincare.
My skin is normal, sometimes leaning to dry, not breakout prone. I'm looking for skincare that will give me that glowing, dewy look and the Ren oil gave me all of that and more! The first few times I used it (day and night) I noticed my skin looking smoother and feeling very soft, and overall, I just looked healthy and rested. After a few weeks, my skin was transformed! Any pigmentation or old acne scars were fading drastically. My pores looked smaller, and my skin WITHOUT make up looked almost airbrushed. Over time I found myself reaching for less and less foundation. A previous review on here said that this oil is 'youth in a bottle' and I completely agree!
Packaging: Glass bottle with a pump. I know oils and glass bottles can be a disaster waiting to happen (wet bathroom, slippery glass bottle...). I keep mine on my vanity table to avoid disasters. My only issue with the packaging is that it's leak prone. It comes with this little plastic cover on the pump which somehow never really stays on the bottle. So just be careful with the bottle. Make sure to always store the bottle standing up to avoid leakage.
I apply the oil both day and night (and I do currently live in a hot, humid climate). I use my cleanser, remove my make up, use toner, and then spray my skin with a face mist. I apply a few drops of the rose oil to my damp face and neck. I wait about 2-5 minutes and then apply my regular moisturizer on top. Another way I apply the oil is by mixing a few drops directly in a dollop of moisturizer. I've used many face oils and this is a heavier one - it takes longer to sink in than others (Ie: Decleor sinks in very quick for me!) So I have to wait 15-20 minutes for the oil to sink in to my skin before doing my make up in the mornings.
The scent is rose of course. I love rose scented anything so obviously I like it. The smell fades quickly though. Don't worry about your face smelling like flowers all day.
With face oils, I would just recommend to experiment with them and see what works for you and your skin type. You may not find a need to use it both day and night, you might need to use an extra drop on certain days, you might need to 'pat' the oil in versus massaging it in, etc.
