As you can imagine the last few months have been pretty chaotic. Our family calendar is packed with appointments, parties, shows and deliveries, not to mention the mountain of wrapping, organising and cleaning I’ve still to get through. Just getting out the house with a newborn and toddler is an exhausting process. I very rarely have time to get glam or even style my hair, however, I have been following a quick and no-nonsense skincare routine to ensure my skin still looks fresh and glowing despite the freezing cold weather and lack of makeup.
I have tried many REN Clean Skincare products in the past, in fact, I recently made full use of their amazing Black Friday offers and stocked up on a few of my favourites including their bestselling Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Tonic. I also purchased a top up of the Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask, a product I’ve been using weekly ever since I read about it in Pretty Iconic: A Personal Look at the Beauty Products that Changed the World by Sali Hughes. I even managed to pick up a few free gifts along the way. If you are unfamiliar with REN, they believe in clean, safe skincare, with no toxins, no harsh or controversial chemicals, and no potential irritants. They are a cruelty-free skincare brand that uses 100% recyclable packaging, refillable solutions and bottles made from reclaimed ocean plastic.
The Glow Daily Vitamin C Gel Cream is the latest addition to the Radiance collection. It’s a simple yet effective lightweight cream suitable for all skin types. It has the same fresh sweet orange fragrance as the rest of the range and sinks effortlessly into your skin with no sticky or greasy residue. My poor face has been feeling the effects of being constantly exposed to central heating and chilly winds recently, and this cooling cream provides instant relief and a long-lasting boost of hydration. It contains a combination of Tara Pod Extract, Vitamin C and Magnesium, which work in harmony to illuminate my complexion whilst making it appear plumper and healthier. I used to feel the need to cake on my foundation to disguise discolouration and fake the appearance of a healthy glow, but now all I need is a little concealer and mascara and I’m out the door. Running around after my kids may make me feel tired and drained, but the Glow Daily Vitamin C Gel Cream definitely helps to disguise this.
If you’re looking to update your skincare routine in the New Year I highly recommend you try out the new Glow Daily Vitamin C Gel-Cream (launching January 2nd) or in fact any product from the REN Clean Skincare Radiance Collection.
