HOLY GRAIL: REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask

Sunday 26 May 2013

Hey Ladies,

I'm knocking these Holy Grail posts out at the moment aren't I? Today I bring you another and it was an instantaneous favourite.
REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask*

'REN have discovered a powerful combination of a fruit acid complex and papain enzyme, from the papaya fruit, that gives a gentle yet effective exfoliating peel. Helping to eliminate dead skin cells and minimise pore blockages, the REN Glycolic Skin Renewal Peel Mask reduces inflammation while healing and repairing your skin.'
Rarely with skincare can I claim to see an immediate effect and love it from the minute I've used it but this really does live up to it's hype in the Beauty Blogging world.

The first thing that hits you when you pump the product out is it's texture, it's a very strange jam like consistency and the second thing is the smell, I cannot describe how amazing this stuff smells I actually wanted to lick it off the back of my hand rather than apply it to my face, it's a very strong citrusy lemony orange smell. Incredible.

Of course the smell doesn't mean a thing unless the product actually does something and boy does this pack a powerful punch. The usual method of slapping it on and leaving on for 10 or so minutes (or until I can be bothered to move) is required, no manual exfoliation or peeling off nonsense just remove with a damp cloth (included in the box) and your skin looks immediately glowing and healthier.

I loved it from that minute but it's not done there, after you apply your various lotions and potions you'll notice your skin feels slightly tacky so you are left with a residue of some sort on your skin. The next morning your skin will feel like new, it looks bright and glowing and feels softer than it will have likely felt in a long time.

Amazing product, at £30ish (£27 here) it's not exactly cheap but the results mean I will always have a tube (?) of this for when my skin needs to be in tip top shape.

Have you ever had an instantaneous result with a skin care product??


  1. I've had many a sample of this and just didn't get on with it at all. Such a shame because some people love it so much. For an instant result I love the Origins 10 min drink up mask, works wonders xx
