Mini REN reviews

Ages and ages ago I did this post about receiving the REN six of the best box. Well last week I finally started using three of the items and thought I'd share my thoughts in case anyone was thinking of buying a full size of any of them...
Mayblossom Balanacing Cleansing Gel
I've been using this as a facial wash, its for combination skin so not ideal for my dry skin, however it smells wonderful and leaves my face feeling clean but not dry so its fine for me to use for a few days. Its only 25ml so I reckon it'll be finished by the middle of next week. Unfortunately when it arrived it had leaked - hence the tape holding the top together!
Active 7 Radiant Eye Gel
I've never used a specific eye cream before but as I've started to notice fine lines around my eyes I was more than happy to give this a try. It is sensitive enough not to irritate my eyes but it has no smell and so far I've not noticed my eyes feeling any better or worse than they did before.
Omega 3 Night Repair Serum
Despite the fact this product has a slightly 'fishy' smell about it (I seem to remember another blogger mentioning this to me and they sent theirs back) I actually like it! And as I've had the box since July I didn't think REN would accept me returning it. It goes a long way, one tiny pump covers my face and neck and it definitely moisturises it. I only use it at night and my face feel softer in the morning which makes me feel happy. Not sure I'd buy it again for a while as I've got a few other serums to use but its definitely my favourite of the three products! 


  1. I've used this and thought it was absolutely great, particularly for really sensitive skin, though the bottles are on the small side! Keep up the greats posts! Really enjoying your blog!!

    1. Thank you! I know what you mean - the bottles are mini, think they want us to buy the full size :)

  2. unfortunately the serum didn't work for my skin but I like the other products, especially the eye cream... really fresh on the skin! xx

  3. Oh no - bad news about the serum not working but glad the eye cream is a good one for you :)
