REN Hydra-Calm Global Protection Day Cream and Hydra-Calm Youth Defence Serum

Product Info

Brand
REN Hydra-Calm Global Protection Day Cream is a moisturiser formulated to leave more sensitive skin optimally hydrated, calmed, soothed, protected and looking beautifully healthy.
I'm an ingredient freak, and was fascinated to see these in the line-up:
Omega 3 and 7 from arctic blackcurrant seed and arctic seabuckthorn berry oil help to reduce skin inflammation and irritation, Bisabolol soothes and reduces redness and Global protection complex, with a powerful blend of anti-oxidants and free radical scavengers too numerous to list here, protects the skin against UV-induced damage and premature ageing

REN Hydra-Calm Youth Defence Serum is specifically formulated to address the concerns of ageing through sensitivity. It protects, replenishes and visibly improves skin tone to keep sensitive skin looking younger for longer, reduces inflammation, strengthens the capillary walls and reduces hyperpigmentation.
Key ingredients here are Milk Polypeptide from Milk Protein, which calms redness and inflammation and strengthens skin's lipid barrier, and Hyaluronic Acid from wheat, which boosts hydration, plumping skin

Apply serum under moisturiser in the morning and under night cream in the evening, or use alone if your skin is oilier.

REN uses no parabens, sulphates, petrochemicals or artificial fragrances in the Hydra Calm range

REN Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream

At R550.00 for 50ml this a pretty pricey moisturiser, BUT it is totally worth every cent!

It is pretty thick, but I do find that after about 5 minutes it absorbs, which is around the time you have to wait before applying your primer anyschways.

The calming sensation that it gives to your skin is almost unreal. It also leaves you with that choc choc glow. Your skin feels plump & hydrated and it works fantastic under makeup.

The scent is also quite calming with botanical & earthy notes. Highly recommend this product!

I found the consistency of the moisturiser good, if slightly thick, but wasn't wild about the smell, which is fairly strong and botanical. You can really smell the ingredients in this one ! Great hydration and no irritation, so it performs as promised.
I particularly loved the serum, as I don't always like a heavier moisturiser, and sometimes just use the serum on its own. The smell was light and fresh - a bit like cucumber, and the texture was great - absorbed immediately, and left my skin feeling clam and hydrated.

I liked the fact that the packaging is made from renewable resources. It's not the standard glossy cosmetic offering, but the reduced carbon footprint more than makes up for a lack of glitz on the bottle !
