Review: REN Clean Skincare V-Cense Youth Vitality Day Cream and Rose O12 Moisture Defense Oil #REN

REN Clean Skincare is a company that offers healthier skincare products to help make skin look younger longer. They have a philosophy that can be summed up in three words: Performance, Purity and Pleasure. The Performance aspect of their skincare line offers exceptional groundbreaking product formulas, the latest in hi-tech actives, rigorous product testing and clinically proven results. The Purity aspect of their products is that they only use 100% plant and mineral derived actives and their products are free from synthetic ingredients that are not friendly to the skin. REN is free from synthetic fragrance, mineral oil, petrolatum, sulfates, synthetic colors, animal ingredients and parabens. REN products do not contains any potential irritants such as glycols, diglycols such as propylene glycol, PEGs, PPGs, urea, PABA, synthetic sunscreens, synthetic AHAs/BHAs etc. Finally, the Pleasure aspect of their products is that they believe the texture, fragrance and experience of using REN can make the world a slightly nicer place to be in and make people feel slightly nicer. Since their launch in 2000, the company has become a cult favorite among beauty editors and consumers. 

V-Cense Youth Vitality Day Cream 50 mL $50.00
REN Skincare V-Cense Youth Vitality Day Cream
This cream prevents and minimizes the signs of premature aging. It has a complex of actives that intensely hydrates the skin, nourishes, protects against free radical damage,  protects against pollution and smooth away fine lines and wrinkles. It does this all while boosting skin energy and elasticity. Imperfections are reduced. Skin is hydrated, protected and glowing. Prevents the appearance of premature of aging. Vitamin C from Calabrian Oranges boosts collagen formulation to lift and firm the skin. Frankincense and Boswellic Acid help to relax facial muscles to smooth away expression lines and wrinkles. Tocotrienols from Arctic Cranberry Seed Oil protect against free radicals and UV induced damage. There is also some lactic acid to help exfoliate skin. Carrot root extract and carrot seed oil are included to rejuvenate skin, reducing imperfections and making it glow. The primary ingredient in most creams is usually water, but in this one it is Rosa Damascena Flower Water or Damask Rose Water. This comes from Bulgarian roses and it helps to hydrate the skin, leaving it feeling soft and supple.

I love this cream so much. It makes a great moisturizer, and helps to give skin a beautiful glow. The actives in this cream are good for anti-aging purposes and will be good for anyone looking to help prevent aging skin. The only thing I could say about this cream is that it does not have a sunscreen in it. Now, I know that REN Clean Skincare do not use synthetic sunscreens in their skincare but I think they could have added an mineral sunscreen in this. That would have made it the perfect product for me. I firmly believe that any anti-aging day cream should have a sunscreen in it. Sun damage it the primary reason for aging. 

Rose O12 Moisture Defense Oil 30 mL $80.00

REN Skincare Rose O12 Moisture Defense Oil
This is an ultra-moisturizing oil that is formulated to help dry and dehydrated skin. It locks in moisture and restores softness, comfort and radiance. By restoring moisture it plumps up the skin. Skin appears renewed, glowing and healthy looking. It protects against free radicals to combat against the signs of premature aging. Radiance is restored, skin is more elastic. This oil contains ceramides from Carthame Oil. It also contains Phospholipids from Soybeans and Essential Fatty Acids from Seabuckthorn Berry Oil. Rosehip Seed Oil helps to repair skin. Octacosenoic Acid from Ximenia Oil locks moisture into the skin to help restore skin’s softness, elasticity and comfort. Tocotrienols from Cranberry Seed Oil help to protect against premature aging and oxidative damage.

Ingredients such as Rice Germ Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil, Macademia Ternifolia Seed Oil and Camellia Oleifera Seed Oil keep skin feeling soft and looking younger. It also contains Rosa Damascena Flower Oil, which is a powerful oil that can help to refine skin texture, soften skin, keep skin moisturized, hydrate the skin and can calm and soothe the skin. Rose oil has been known to also be quite healing to the skin too. This oil has even been known to treat acne.
I have used this oil for more than a month and have been very happy with how much softer my skin has become. My skin has also become more supple. Since I use alpha-hydroxy acids on my skin too I tend to become a little dehydrated and using this has helped it keep more hydrated. Facial oils are great for any skin type, including oily skins. I would recommend this for any skin type as it is helpful for basic skin needs.

REN Clean Skincare is a great line that relies on nature to provide what skin needs. They have products for any skincare need, such as anti-aging, blemish prone, dry skin and even sensitive skin. The products are free of any irritants, synthetics and are made with natural ingredients that are friendly to the skin. I like the results that I received with each of the products I tried out. REN Clean Skincare is available from www.renskincare.com, www.sephora.com and SEPHORA stores. The products are now available in various department stores, pharmacies and spas in over 50 countries around the world.

  1. I really want to love REN products but always feel a little bit underwhelmed by them - maybe my expectations are just to high but I always feel like I'm going to get something really special and just haven't so far. The facial oil sounds fab though!
