REN Pure Glow Trio - Practically Everything You Need To Get Glowing.

     Does anyone else out there love discovery kits as much as I do? They are freakin' awesome. For a reasonable price, you can purchase smaller versions of those products you're interested in and find out if you like them or not before splurging on full sizes. In this kit I got 100ml of Rosa California Cleansing Balm, 40ml of Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial and 20ml of Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask. And all that goodness for 54$, bargain!

     I've heard so many good things about REN, especially about 1 Minute Facial. So when I saw a three piece discovery kit from REN that included that very Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial + two other products in Sephora  there was no stopping me from buying it. It was probably the first thing I grabbed and tried right after I came home and it was love from the first sight (or use). When you apply it onto the dry skin it feels almost like scrub, but after you dampen your fingers and massage it again the vitamin C granules dissolve. After you finally wash this product off skin feels refreshed, smooth and looks more radiant. I wouldn't say it makes huge difference in appearance, but it does make you look more awake and fresh that's for sure. And it smells lovely and citrusy too.


      Rosa Centifolia no.1 Purity Cleansing Balm comes in a very generous size, this tube will probably last me for a couple of months. It has a gentle rose scent and very lovely texture that immediately melts on the skin turning into thick oil. It truly is a pleasure to cleanse the skin with it. It smells good, feels good. But there's one thing that saddens me, it stings my eyes. Not the skin around it but the eyes, so it's a bad choice for taking makeup off your eyes with. It even says on the tube to avoid eye contact. I hate using million things just to take my makeup off so I only use this cleanser on no-makeup days and I still enjoy it. I've never tried a cleansing balm that was good for taking off eye makeup anyway, have you?


     And the last and the smallest piece of this trio is Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask. I feel this mask has practically the same effect on the skin as 1 Minute Facial. This one, however is for those times when you have 10 minutes to spend. It is also very refreshing and brightening, I also love the tingling sensation that it gives. I prefer making this step of my skin care in the evening as it's exfoliating and may leave skin sensitive to the negative factors as sun and pollution. And even though I reach for the Flash Rinse more often, this one is still a good product to improve the appearance of the skin, you just need to use it "the night before".
